The Arrogance of Survival
Palestinians believe the Russians and Americans are dumb
Just after the Hamas attacked Israel, the right wing Avigdor Leiberman's party won 15 [of 120] seats in the Knesset. [If the Palestinians wanted a softer line, they shouldn't have caused hostilities. This bit of logic escapes anyone who has never lived in a democracy.] Leiberman appeals to Russian immigrants who know the character of Muslims from Afghanistan and Chechnya. Leiberman speaks for about 300,000 Israelis mostly former Russians.
The Americans are fighting two wars in Asia during which they have killed, maimed or displaced five millions Muslims. Yet, the Palestinians expect the USA to side with them against Israel.
The Palestinians must believe the Russians and the Americans are really dumb.
Whoever in the world gives you these ideas?
After losing three preemptive wars, the Americans still base their foreign policy on military might. They have killed 7.2 millions Asians. All of us pray the Americans will rebuke violence
June 1967 saw the incredible Israeli victory against all odds. We hoped then the Muslims would recognize the futility of war and the self-destructive nature of hatred. Like the Americans, the Muslims continued their marriage with hostility.
Israelis after 1967 realize the Muslims are unlikely to broker a lasting peace. Maybe the decline in oil revenues will cut down the expenditures for violence.
When will Americans stop projecting their evil intent on Israelis?
You Equate the Jewish Will to Survive with Arrogance
Few Americans consider their victims as human beings. They are amazed when Hispanics demonstrate for their human rights. They are angry at Guantanamo prisoners who object to being tortured. They are upset by Asians who remind them of their rape of the continent.
Americans believe they can run amok all over the world without penalty. As we speak, the Taliban infiltrate the Punjab the home of the Pakistan nuclear arsenal.
Pakistanis, Afghans and Taliban agree that the US is an unwelcome invader.
People of color are capable of bringing 44 suitcase A-bombs to as many US cities. Can you understand why they may be inspired to do this? Maybe, they consider the violent USA as a threat to their survival. This is not arrogance; it is common sense.
Your Argument Would be Stronger with Facts
With Rowsey and others you confuse the Israeli will to survive with arrogance. You characterize Davld Ben Gurion and others as extremist right wing leaders.
You write, "These billionaire, religious extremists have never been worried about "being pushed into the sea", since they have SEVERAL TIMES OVER more atomic weaponry, thanks to the AIPAC, than the entire Arab world combined.
I answer. There was never one 'billionaire' Israeli leader.
Fifteen [of 120] is the maximum number of seats in the Parliament ever held by a 'religious extremist' faction.
"Being pushed into the sea" was a definite possibility until the 1967 June War. [The Egyptians had more tanks than the Germans had when they invaded Russia.]
You confuse AIPAC with your FBI. Scores of Jewish scientists came to Israel to develop her nuclear capacity. The FBI through the US State Department sold US nuclear secrets to Turkey and Pakistan among others from 1996. This has been common knowledge since 2002. Why do you accuse AIPAC?
You open with four Arab falsehoods in less than a paragraph. This is not promising.
You claim, "The agenda is now and has always been to steal the entire State of Palestine." If this was Israel's objective, why did she wait until 1967 to occupy it and why did she withdraw from it in this century?
DNA evidence proves Jews inhabited Israel thousands of years ago. Jews share a Y-chromosome with Syrians and Palestinians. Rather than the 2% or 3% you claim, the Old Testament is the major part of the Holy Bible held sacred by over one billion Christians.
Finally, you suggest a two-state solution. The Palestinians have resisted this with seven wars since 1948.
"What continues to disgust the world community is why is this not enough???
Real world diplomacy would solve this stinking mess in two weeks."
Do you call 'real world diplomacy' what the USA did in Iraq?
