The Arabs Don't Want Peace with Israel
American Thinker ^ | Oct 28, 2019 | Kenneth Eliasberg

... There will never be peace between the Arabs and Israel. Why not? Because, as noted, the Arabs don't want peace with Israel; they don't want Israel, and will look for any excuse to avoid any kind of peace agreement. As Netanyahu once observed regarding the prospects for peace in the area: "If the Arabs put down their weapons today there would be no more violence; if the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel." Or, as Golda Meir before him observed: "Peace will come when Arabs will love their children more than they hate us".

Unfortunately, the Palestinians illegitimate arguments for their so-called oppression by a colonial power is resonating with the very real anti-Semitism that is abroad (particularly in Europe, but gaining a great deal of ground in America -- particularly in our universities).

So what are we to do? Exactly what Caroline Glick urges us to do in her exceptionally well written book, The Israeli Solution - A One-State Plan for Peace in The Middle East. Glick makes a very persuasive case for placing the West Bank (i.e. Judea and Samaria) under the jurisdiction of Israel. In doing so, she demolishes John Kerry's argument that Israel can be either a Jewish State or be democratic; it cannot be both, says Kerry, and Glick demonstrates that he is wrong. (Has Kerry ever been right about anything significant?) So, don't look for peace to break out any time soon between Israel and its neighbors.

Since its establishment, the Arabs have tried by both force and diplomacy to destroy Israel. To date they have failed but the effort is ongoing.

That was a very balanced article. But I still can’t see where John Kerry is wrong.

If Israel annexes the whole of the West Bank, something like three million Arabs would become voting Israeli citizens. Muslims have no desire to assimilate. And they have high birth rates. How could that not affect Israeli elections, and then Israel itself?

Jews and other minorities for thousands of years lived as mostly self-governing communities under sovereignty they had little say over. It is a neocon theory that everyone wants and needs some kind of pure democracy..

“The Arabs Don’t Want Peace with Israel”


WOW, really? Whodathunkit? Now everything is clear to me, kind of like when I found out that a group of baboons is called a “Congress.” Thanks, Eliasberg, you’ve really solved the mysteries of the universe for me!

I agree with that. But let’s suppose Israel annexes the West Bank, and then didn’t give the West Bank Arabs the right to vote in national elections. Israel would not be able to withstand the international outcry that would follow.

Israel would be compared to the old South Africa, where blacks could not vote in national elections. And that comparison would have some validity.

Not that Netanyahu ever asked me, but I think an annexation would be a disaster for Israel in the long run.

Peace in Arab/Muslim mind comes when they have raped
and despoiled the entire earth and return the level
of human existence to 7th century standards.

The Elizabeth Warren International Military Cemetery in Hamon Gog, Israel has plenty of room.

It’s not that they don’t want peace, it more accurately that Europeans want to boot out their history by the elimination of Israel’s presence in a single generation.
