Perpetual War with Israel the Glue Holding Palestinians Together

While it is true that Israel finds itself in a difficult position resulting from International and American pressure, a delegitimization campaign, a demographic inferiority and a land squeeze, committing national suicide by banking on empty American assurances is not the solution to these problems. Further concessions in response to US pressures will put Israel’s security in jeopardy without advancing the cause of peace.

The main reason that the Palestinian leadership has held on to demands that they know will never be acceptable to Israel, is that they realize that peace with Israel will, paradoxically, bring an end to the Palestinian entity. It will dissolve the adhesive that holds the Palestinians together and it will result in a loss of political control and cohesion. It will add thousands of Jihadist warriors to the ranks of the disgruntled and unemployed, who will flood the streets, and voila another ‘Arab Spring’, a Palestinian one. Peace with Israel for the Palestinians leadership is a dive into a dark and bottomless abyss, and based on their track record they seem to be more at home with a perpetual state of war.

    Trying to speak to Roosevelt behind closed doors didn't help the Jews of Europe, 6,000,000 Jews were slaughtered, murdered, burned, vanished!

    Speak Up!

    לנסות לדבר עם רוזוולט בדלתיים סגורים לא עזר ליהודי אירופה, 6,000,000 יהודים נטבחו, נרצחו, נשרפו, נעלמו!

    'Trying to speak to Roosevelt behind closed doors didn't help the Jews of Europe'

    Official in Prime Minister's Office reacts angrily to accusations that Israeli leadership harming strategic ties with Obama administration: Seventy-five years ago, the Jews tried to talk with Roosevelt, and that did not really help the Jews of Europe."

  3. Ken Kelso says:

    What Igal is saying is, the conflict defines the Palestinians. Without it, to paraphrase Nasser, they are just another failed Arab tribe with a flag.

    Abbas and the other head thugs for Fatah have real intention or motivationfor ending the conflict. They are welfare queens who make a fortune in easy handouts from the EU, UN and USA. Abbas knows the second the conflict is over the billions in aid ends.

    Abbas does not want to exert any energy to end the conflict and lose all this easy cash?

  4. Ken Kelso says:

    The Palestinians are obsessed with hate.
    They are a hateful people with lives ruled by prejudice, terrorism and murdering innocent civilians.
    The Pals never contribute nothing to society, other than whining that Israel doesn't want to live under Sharia law.

    Any sane human would CONDEMN the recruitment of children under age 18 in armed conflicts.
    Yet contrary to this basic tenet, PALESTINIAN CHILDREN ARE DELIBERATELY BEING RAISED IN A CULTURE OF VIOLENCE and HATE.
    There are MANY and VARIED instances which prove this. Teaching children to become suicidal/homicidal bombers is a war crime.
    WHAT KIND OF MOTHERS and FATHERS ARE THESE ARABS?

    Israel should be commended for its extreme restraint. Which other country would tolerate blood thirsty terrorists within and next door who want to annihilate the country

    The PA is a dysfuctional group who has one purpose: to intimidate others, to get their way.

    Good article what Igal is saying.

    And that is the only thing holding it together, keeping their leaders in place, etc. There will never be peace as long as Pa. schools continue to teach hate and death, and they are never pressured into changing.

  7. Lloyd Bergner says:

    We have met the enemy and it is called islam..
    This is worth remembering:
    "where there is no vision, the people perish" Proverbs 29:18

  8. That is exactly right..
