Amir Taheri has a response up at Mosaic Magazine to Daniel Polisar's article about what the Palestinians believe and desire. Taheri concludes with this question for the Palestinians:
Which would you prefer: (1) to see a Palestinian state on the map? (2) to see Israel wiped off the map?I would like to modify that question to make clear what the preferences are:
Which would you prefer: (1) for a Palestinian state to emerge on some portion of the West Bank that ends all claims against Israel thus allowing for Israel to exist in perpetuity? (2) for Martians to conquer the entirety from "the river to the sea" which effect the elimination of Israel from the map along with any chance for a Palestinian state to emerge?
