Fatah, which is led by Mahmoud Abbas, is the dominant group in the Palestinian Liberation Organization, the ‘sole legitimate representative of the Palestinian people’, which controls the Palestinian Authority that is intended to someday morph into the government of ‘Palestine’, should such a political entity come into being.
One would think that the fact that terrorists associated with Fatah broke into a Jewish home and brutally stabbed to death five members of the Fogel family simply because they were Jews living in the Land of Israel would tell us something.
It should tell us that it would be a poor idea to allow these people to set up a sovereign state next door, to dismantle security provisions and just trust them.
When they speak Arabic they say they want to destroy us. Then they prove it by deeds like this. Over and over. And yet, members of the ‘peace camp’ say things like this:
I ask why the American Jewish community (at the JCPA annual plenum earlier this week) failed to pass a resolution proposed by the Reform movement asking Israel to abide by its agreements and dismantle ideological, illegal and unhelpful settlements…
I blame us. I blame us for not thinking creatively, collaboratively and swiftly to find a way out of the stalemate. I blame us for finding foes in not the system but each other, between Jews and between Palestinians. We bear this blame together. We should all be moved to end the conflict, instead of justifying the wrongs of the past.
Beyond belief, isn’t it?
Since we are apportioning blame today, here is how I would do it:
- First and foremost, I blame the Palestinian Arabs, who have created a culture of hatred and death, a truly twisted travesty of human society, whose greatest aspiration is to be better genocides than Hitler.
- Second, I blame the ‘peace movement’, particularly in Israel, which has consistently held in the face of all logic and reason that the way to prevent someone who is bent on murdering you from succeeding is to give up every strategic advantage you may have, to arm him and invite him into your home.
- And third, I blame every Israeli government since that of Rabin, who have allowed themselves — against the clear wishes of the majority of Israeli Jews — to follow the program of the ‘peace movement’ to the letter, making concession after concession to the PLO, despite the fact that the response is always the same: murder.
Where is the logic, Mr. Kung Fu, that tells us that although the PLO has done nothing but kill Jews since they began, they will surely stop killing Jews as soon as they possess every last centimeter of Judea, Samaria, Jerusalem, etc.?
Why will it be different then?
