I learned that long ago when trying to have a dialogue - about the Middle East. Posted: Apr 20th, 2017 - 10:30 am In Reply to: Civility - TruePatriot
It's difficult to solve but easy to understand.
The Arab and other Muslim enemies of Israel (for the easily confused, this does not mean every Arab or every Muslim) want Israel destroyed. That is why there is a Middle East conflict. Everything else is commentary.
Those who deny this and ascribe the conflict to other reasons, such as “Israeli occupation,” “Jewish settlements,” a “cycle of violence,” “the Zionist lobby” and the like, do so despite the fact that Israel’s enemies regularly announce the reason for the conflict. The Iranian regime, Hizbollah, Hamas and the Palestinians — in their public opinion polls, in their anti-Semitic school curricula and media, in their election of Hamas, in their support for terror against Israeli civilians in pre-1967 borders — as well as their Muslim supporters around the world, all want the Jewish state annihilated.
In 1947-48, the Arab states tried to destroy the tiny Jewish state formed by the United Nations partition plan. In 1967, Egypt, Syria and Jordan tried to destroy Israel in what became known as the Six-Day War. All of this took place before Israel occupied one millimeter of Palestinian land and before there was a single Jewish settler in the West Bank.
Israel in the last year of the Clinton administration offered PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat about 97% of the West Bank and 3% of Israel’s land in exchange for peace. Instead, Israel got its men, women and children routinely blown up and maimed by Palestinian terrorists after the Palestinians rejected the Israeli offer at Camp David. Even President Clinton blamed the ensuing violence entirely on the Palestinians.
All this is easily verified.
The hate filled rhetoric on this board when it comes to this topic actually rivals that of Trump.
Just thought I would share this because I see this board getting worse. Kind of a waste of time really.
