President Bush’s continued commitment to a “two-state solution” flies in the face of the reality on the ground. That reality was best defined by former Jerusalem Post editor Bret Stephens in a recent article in the Wall Street Journal: “No matter how much diplomatic, military and financial oxygen is pumped into Mahmoud Abbas’s Palestinian Authority,” Stephens asserted, “it’s oxygen flowing to a corpse…. Palestinians, as we know them today, will revert to who they were: Arabs…. [T]he dream that was Palestine is finally dead.”
As we have pointed out in previous statements:
- The myth of “Palestinians” has been created by the Arab league to undermine Israel.
- There is no moral, legal or demographic reason to create yet another Arab state.
- There is no room for two viable states on the 10,800 sq. miles of the land of Israel.
- The Arabs have among them a huge, sparsely populated 5,300,000 sq. miles.
- The Arabs residing in Judea, Samaria and Gaza are not indigenous to those areas, as their propaganda claims – they came to Eretz Israel from neighboring Arab states and as far afield as Bosnia during the Mandate period.
- Abbas and his gang of terrorists have claimed more Jewish lives then Hamas and Islamic Jihad combined. It is Abbas who is and was responsible for training Arab children for jihad.
- The creation of a sovereign Fatah/Hamas entity in Israel’s heartland would constitute jihad’s crowning victory over national Jewish viability.
While Mr. Bush may have truly good intentions for peace in our region, he must redirect his efforts toward the Arab states. There can be no peace in our region as long as those states remain dedicated to a global campaign of anti-Israel, anti-Jewish vilification and murderous incitement.
When their education for Jihad is transformed into education for tolerance and acceptance of religious and cultural diversity, peace in the Middle East and the world will have a chance. False illusions can only prolong the coming of that day!
