Do you really want to know what the Palestinians are like? Do you want to understand what sort of leadership there is? What sort of public attitudes are encouraged? Well, here ya go – from Palestinian Media Watch:
The Palestinian Authority chose the mother of 4 terrorist murderers, one of whom killed seven Israeli civilians and attempted to killed twelve others, as the person to launch their statehood campaign with the UN. In a widely publicized event, the PA had Latifa Abu Hmeid lead the procession to the UN offices in Ramallah and to hand over a letter for the UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon.
The official PA daily reported that she launched the UN campaign last week, and noted that she is the “mother of seven prisoners and of the Shahid (Martyr) Abd Al-Mun’im Abu Hmeid.” However, the paper did not mention that 4 of her imprisoned sons are murderers…
These are the people the Israelis are supposed to make peace with? This is an indication of a sincere desire to live in peace with Israel?
The reality is that the Palestinian leadership believes they will win it all, eventually. From being an exiled terrorist group chased around the world by Mossad they have been allowed to become permanently domiciled in parts of the West Bank and in Gaza…who, 30 years ago, would ever have imagined this? And, so, in their mind’s eye, where will they be 30 years from now? So, naturally, they choose the mother of murderers to present their petition for UN recognition…using murder and mayhem has got them this far and there is every indication that more murder and mayhem will get them farther.
It is time to force these people to be reasonable…give them a week to declare, in Arabic in letters delivered to every single Palestinian, that they recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish State, that they renounce the “right of return” and that Jerusalem is the undivided capitol of Israel…and if they don’t do it, announce that for each week they don’t, 1% of currently occupied West Bank land will forever be denied them. And if they do go 100 weeks refusing, then start taking 1% of the land they current own, week by week, until they agree. And if 200 weeks go by and they still don’t agree, then start kicking them out of the West Bank and Gaza and transferring them to Sinai and Jordan.
I know, harsh – but how are we to reach those who choose the mother of murderers as their symbol? Someone name for me anything the Palestinians have said or done which indicates a sincere desire for peace. We have to force it out of them by letting them know they are beaten and that their future, as a people in the West Bank and Gaza, can only come about via cooperation with the Israelis. Or we can just drift along and let them, murder by murder, slowly take over the whole of Israel.
