What The "Two-State Solution" Has to Do with the Rise of Islamic Extremism: Zero
"What Kerry perhaps does not know is that the Islamic State is not interested in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at all. Unlike Kerry, Sunni scholars fully understand that the Islamic State has more to do with Islam and terrorism than with any other conflict.”
An exercise in logic.
Some “intellectuals” and some not so- intellectuals are claiming that Israel is causing all the problems in the Middle East by oppressing the Palestinian people.
So the logical conclusion would be that Muslims in the Middle East are killing each other to help the Palestinians. I guess Shiites and Sunnis are killing each other to prove that they love their Palestinian brothers.
And Hamas is killing their Palestinian brothers and sisters to prove that only Hamas can liberate them
To rephrase Golda Meir: they hate each other more than they love their children.
As to those “intellectuals” and not-so intellectuals, I would suggest they think before they talk because they obviously cannot do both at the same time.
Also, my intellectual friends, while you are quiet please think about this: How many countries in the Middle East recognize the right of Israel to exist? A two-states solution means the recognition of the state of Israel. How many countries in the Middle East are interested?
By the way, many super-nice intellectuals (some call them Liberals) love to fight for victims, for the oppressed. Guess what: I'M A JEW AND I DO NOT WANT TO BE A VICTIM ANYMORE!
And please stay quiet while you ponder these issues. Good luck.
The Middle East, the region of our world composed of unstable Arab tribal societies ruled by kings and warlords and artificially created by British colonial powers, is universally up in arms against the only democracy in that part of the world.
Israel- Palestinian conflict.
According to liberals the world supports the idea of Israel going back to 1967 borders in order to achieve peace in the region. The only problem with that position is that if Israel would implement that strategy, there would be NO Israel.
The world did nothing during the Holocaust. The world has never been supportive of Jews or a Jewish State. Presently the world is more sympathetic to violent backward oppressive Arab regimes than to tiny Israel, the only Jewish country on the planet. So when liberal speak of world opinion and accuse Israel of genocide, I feel anger and sadness, anger at an unfair and hateful world and sadness for the fate of the Jewish people.What could be more evident than the fact that one cannot negotiate with an enemy who does not acknowledge your right to exist?What follows are some readily verifiable statistics of UN activities pertaining to the Arab-Israeli conflict over that past several years. I ask you to be especially aware of the percentages presented.
