Ever hear the term "dual use", Flaming? There are no starving Arabs in Gaza. Another Leftist lie in the service of anti-Semitism.
There is no "Palestinian" state because there is no such thing as a "Palestinian" people. To say otherwise is to lie. If there was ever a nation called "Palestine", what was its capital? What was its currency? Who were their leaders? What were the borders? What did their flag look like? "Palestine" fails the smell test. The "Palestinian People" was created in 1964 when Egypt created the PLO (Arafat was an Egyptian), three years before Israel liberated Gaza, Judea, and Samaria. So, then, what was the PLO supposed to liberate, and from whom? Answer: They were to liberate all of Israel, pushing the Jews into the sea. And so the goal remains the same today. All you see are just tactics. The Arab-Israeli conflict was never about settlements, borders, refugees, or a "Palestinian" state. It was always about whether the Jewish people have national rights in their ancestral homeland or not. Fail, again, Flaming.
Nonsense, Flaming. No Arabs were displaced in Gaza after the 1967 war. The Israelis built towns and farms on unused land. It was misguided Ariel Sharon who allowed himself to be coerced by the State Department into retreating from land that was never part of any Arab state, that Israel had liberated in a defensive war. That means that Israel was entitled to retain Gaza according to international law. Look at a map, Flaming. Gaza is clearly a part of Israel, and has a long history of Jewish communities. Gaza was "unallocated territory" under the League of Nations Mandate for Palestine, meaning it was never part of any nation after the Ottoman Empire fell in WWI. Egypt's 19 year occupation of Gaza was never recognized by the world, not even by other Arab states. Total fail, Flaming.
Flaming: What you lack is any understanding of the challenges Israel faces. While they needlessly try not to upset liberal anti-Semites like you, they also must try to protect their children from the most blood-thirsty Jew-killers since the Nazis. It's called self-defense, but when Jews try it, it drives the anti-Semites crazy. Why, oh why, can't the Jews in Israel take a lesson from their grandparents and just march quietly into the showers? Too bad for you and your kind, Flaming, the ghetto Jew is dead. The Jew of Israel is proud, unapologetic, and will fight for their land and their families. It is the remnants of the Muslim-Arabian invaders of the 7th Century that came to colonize Byzantine Palestine who are the occupiers in the Land of Israel. And their occupation is coming to an end. They have lost many wars in an effort to slaughter the Jews of Israel, and now the Israelis will consolidate their victory, unite their land and will send their enemies back to their original homes in Syria, Jordan, Egypt and Lebanon. Molon labe, Flaming.
Umm, yes, thousands, Darby. Willfully ignorant, much?
Because, Darby, they are taught from their youth that Jews are sub-human, that they have no history in the Land of Israel, and that the Muslims are obligated to drive the Jews into the sea. If you have to ask Ray that question, Darby, I have to ask you a question: Why do you post your silly garbage here when you are clearly uninformed about the history and issues of the Arab-Israeli conflict?
…and all the Arabs and Jews will hold hands and sing Kumbaya. Please. This pipe dream will never happen. As Glick's book "The Israel Solution" details, there is an alternative. Israel should at once annex Judea and Samaria, apply Israeli civil law there, and grant legal resident (not citizenship) status to all of the Arabs in those territories. Any Arabs who refuse to accept that they are living as an Arab minority in a Jewish state are free to leave, and can even expect financial assistance from Israel to facilitate their departure. There is growing realization among many Israelis that a one-state, Israeli solution to the conflict is the only practical way for Israel to create peace. This will never be the peace that is enjoyed by Canada and the U.S., but it will stop the killing. Once the Arabs are shown that the Jews of Israel aren't going anywhere, and that they will fight for their land and their families, the Arabs will leave Israel alone. And that is all Israel has ever desired. The Arab-Israeli conflict was never about settlements, refugees, borders, or a "Palestinian" state. It has always been, and will always be, about whether the Jewish people have national rights in their ancestral homeland or not.

Spot-on, Alan. Absence of proof is not proof of absence. Besides, during the first Gulf War, Hussein sent all his jet fighters to Syria for safe keeping. Who's to say he didn't do the same with his WMDs in the second Gulf War? Syria seems to have a lot of bio-chem stockpiles.

When Brennan (!) says there is a Jihadist threat, I guess we need to take him seriously. It's not often a crypto-Muslim like Brennan will say something to harm the Jihad against the West!

Not surprising at all, really, Keltin2. First of all, the Mullahs would never want to be seen as being in any way friendly or accepting of "The Great Satan". In Islamic culture, all of our appeasement is seen as weakness, not offers of friendship. Second, there is clearly no negative consequence of speaking this way with Obama in office.

MoreFreedom lacks a basic understanding of history and international relations. Precisely because Islam, as embodied by the Ottoman Empire, threatened the West, the Turks were defeated in WWI, and the League of Nations divided up the region into small nations that would not be a threat to Europe in the future. Many Muslims didn’t like that. Tough cookies. Charen did indeed refer to the lack of U.S. support for regime change in 2009. But if you think that isolationism will keep the homeland safe, your are deluded. It is 2014, not 1814. We cannot wait until we see the enemy's tall ships approaching the harbor and let fly the canon. Some Mullah presses a button in Tehran, and minutes later, a U.S. city, perhaps your city, MoreFreedom, is a pile of radioactive rubble. Or worse, an EMP launched from a barge in the Atlantic is detonated over the central U.S., reducing us to the technology of the mid 19th Century, and leading to the death of 90% of our population within a year. Why on earth should we wait for something like that to happen before we defend ourselves against all threats, foreign and domestic? The most legitimate duty of the Federal government is to protect us from foreign attacks and invasions. I say that isolationism will fail, in a 21st Century context, to effectively fulfill that duty. It is not enough to retaliate. Threats must be deterred.
