The Stupid Arab League

Doodad

After initial encouraging reports that Arab states were supporting the Deal of the Century, the Arab League rejected it.

All three nations — Bahrain, Oman and the United Arab Emirates — on Saturday backed an Arab League decision that rejected the US plan, seemingly dashing any hopes the administration may have had of Arab support for its efforts......“These are clauses no Arab or Islamic nation could agree to, so in the end the foreign ministers aligned with the position opposed to the Trump plan.”

The clauses of which they speak, of course, are Islam related: a feeling that the US was promoting a change in the status quo. And therein is the rub. The Islam factor. The mere thought that Jews might trump (no pun intended) Muslims is too much to bear and the all encompassing nail in the coffin of all and every so called peace plan. And as much sense as a prosperous Palestinian state makes to westerners, it ignores the Islam factor and the honor/shame culture Islam creates.

Everyone thought Arab states were coming around and they feared Iran more than anything until it all hit that brick wall;Islam. Kushner told the Palestinians to give up "fairy tales," for peace totally unaware of the terrifying and stupefying pull of the Islam factor.

And so it goes, eternally. Oh BTW, the Arab League rejection was UNANIMOUS. Big surprise.

NOTE: didnt want to start a whole new thread just for this so....added this neat cartoon here. I just know Vindman and Greta probably love them some cuddly Palestinians.

  1. Abbas formally cut ties with Israel and the US, including security cooperation with Israel. Both countries should make him and the "Palestinians," pay dearly for this. Tough love. baby. Abbas needs to be relegated to the dustbin of time.

    1. Hi Doodad, I agree entirely that Mahmoud Abbas should be persona non grata. Israel and the Jews get nothing from a Palestinian-Arab leader who does not want peace. I am leaning increasingly toward a Caroline Glick / Martin Sherman annexation solution.

    2. Mike, Abbas and his ilk are major obstacles to peace. That crew and those like them will NEVER seriously make peace with Israel. Any realistic look at the situation will come to that conclusion. Therefore, unilateral action by the major power, Israel, is the only answer. Trump and his team have provided the basis for this to happen; now it's up to Israel. Short term pain for long term gain.

  2. Both countries should also make Arab League countries pay a high price for their stupid decision to back Abbas et al. Throw them to the Iranian wolves.

    1. You're not kidding, brother. These Muslim Arabs are the most backward irredentist assholes in the world today who really believe everything belongs to them. Time to tell them the truth. I would tell them that they obtained over 99.5 of the lands of the ME by and hook and by crook, and maybe it's time they should possess a little less as there are many peoples in the region who could do without their dominion. We can make trouble for you if that's what we want to do. Neither America nor Israel is dependent on your oil exports anymore. What else did you think you had?
      The "Palestinian Cause" is a terror movement for a restoration of 100% Muslim colonial rule, as the last time it was ruled by Arabs was a long time ago for a relatively short duration. Get over it. And we'll keep getting financially, technologically, and militarily stronger while you languish in your desert kingdoms with your 1st in the world illiteracy rates and misogyny. Good luck with that, assholes.
      Oh, and in case you haven't been paying attention over the last 70 years, it appears that "allah" hasn't been on your side.

  3. Evidently Abbas has backed down on severing security ties with Israel.

  4. "Palestine"
    Can you name an older colonial name still in use?

    It should be made into a poster and displayed on a college campus near you.

    1. Jeff, that is one of the great ironies. Those most opposed to Euro-imperialism want to free "Palestine." They do not even know that "Palestine" was an imposed European colonial designation for Jewish land after the final defeat.

  5. Maybe we should start a campaign patterned on the old H&R Block commercials;
    "Reason #17" that Israel haters get it wrong/Dems have completely lost. Something along those lines.

    My entry (h/t EoZ)
    Chris Matthews said on Tuesday night that Netanyahu is, along with Putin and Erdogan, one of the "bad guys." He said President Trump prefers the "bad guys" to the "good guys" like Macron and (are you ready, Doodad?) Justin Trudeau.

    But back on earth, Benjamin Netanyahu is the foreign leader the American public says it admires most in the world.
