It's Time to Take "No" for an Answer

Mike L.

How long are we going to allow ourselves to be strung along in the hopes that maybe someday in the future the Palestinians and the Arabs, more generally, will finally accept our presence as equals in the land which gave birth to the Jewish people?

Western progressives tell people that the problem is that Israel is oppressing the innocent Palestinians. This is a lie. The problem is that the Arab-Muslim world simply will not accept Jewish sovereignty on Jewish land and they refuse to do so out of religious bigotry.

Everything else flows from that premise. The wars, the suicide bombings and rocket attacks, the check-points and the blockade, all flow from the majoritarian Arab-Muslim persecution of the tiny Jewish minority in the Middle East.

Until you get that, you do not understand the conflict.
