ENTIRE ARAB-ISRAEL CONFLICT EXPAINED IN LESS THAN 20 LINES

Reader comment on item: Israel's Predicament at 60: World's worst neighbourhood

Submitted by G. Marcus (United States), May 8, 2008 at 10:16

According to Sharia law, waging Holy War of Extermination (Jihad) against Infidel nations is every Muslim's command, with Infidels given 3 choices: (a) Embrace Islam; (b) Submit to Islamic rule as oppressed Dhimmis (so-called "Binational State"); (c) Death and destruction. Any Arab ruler who breaks above rules faces "fatwa" of certain death. See Abdullah I of Jordan, Anwar Sadat, fate Arafat faced at Camp David II and Abu-Mazen faces today. There are only 3 ways to counter this: (a) Decisively defeat and expel Jihadist enemies beyond clear geographical barriers (happened in history only in Iberia, Sicily, Malta, Czarist Russia, Ottoman Europe); (b) Sign Truce (Hudna), which Jihadists may for up to 10 years, until able to restage same 3 threats more lethally; (c) Evacuate and emigrate to another land. There it is: Entire foundation of the Arab-Israel conflict (and 14 centuries of Arab Imperialism) in a nutshell... Everything else is just empty words!
