My favorite line from this story is this one, “It was the first time Hamas has stated that Arafat, who like his successor was championed by the American government as Israel’s ‘peace partner,’ gave instructions to Hamas to break two years of relative quiet and launch what evolved into a decade of suicide bombings and deadly rocket attacks.”
A very true, albeit subtle, commentary upon the character of Arafat and his murderous successor, Abbas.
If the world could just get past its hatred of Jews, they would soon realize that it isn’t Israel that is an “obstacle to peace.” Every time Israel gives even a little bit, it increases the violence and murder. We were right to be suspicious of Arafat then and we are right to be suspicious of Abbas now.
Israel wants peace more than anyone, but we know that peace is impossible with the likes of Abbas. Abbas is a terrorist, like Arafat—why do you think Arafat liked him and promoted him?
Israel has more to gain from peace than it does from war, but Abbas has more to gain from war than he does from Peace.
With peace, Israel could direct their attention and their money toward advancing medicine, technology, and tourism in Israel—which would help everyone in the country—Jews, Christians, and Arabs. Our economy would grow by leaps and bounds.
With peace, Abbas stops being the darling of all of the Jew-Haters in the world—the Arab league, most of Europe, and Iran. Right now, in their “resistance,” (which we were right, again, to translate as “war of terror”) brings in millions of dollars every week to the coffers of Abbas and his buddies in Fatah and Hamas. They don’t have to build anything but a threat to Israel in order to be financed, and one murder of an Israeli or a kidnapping can bring in millions upon millions of dollars and continuing celebrity.
The only winners in this fake “peace process” is the American administration, who can appear to be trying to do something towards the leftist dream of “peace.”
Sorry to burst everyone’s bubble, but there won’t be any “peace” as long as the arabs known as “palestinians” are training their children, every day, to hate Jews. There won’t be any “peace” as long as the “palestinians” are taking money to fight Jews. There won’t be any “peace” if the international community keeps demanding that Israel back down and rewards those “palestinians” for their bad behavior and terrorism.
Peace cannot be negotiated with those who profit from war. Let Israel defend herself and fight back against those who threaten her. Let Israel make peace the only way peace can be achieved—through strength.
