An observation here, made after looking at the other responses to Dr. Pipes post and finding a comparable frame of reference, that it is patently obvious the other Muslim nations have little more to offer to the 'Palestinian' person than superficial rally calls. When the rally call goes out, it is usually in conformity with the typical fundamental Muslim mindset to destroy Israel inorder to control Mt. Moriah. Behind all the typical rhetoric of Islamic supporters is that subliminal fact. Why? Because as is mentioned in various places here and in other postings, it is in fact a religious war.

Listen to H. Nasrallah, al-Sadr or al-Zawahiri, or any number of vocal clerics, and in lstening, remember that even as they are castigated by any number of people pleading for common sense, ask the question, how does anyone gain peace for prosecuting a war that will never end in peace? Where do the Israeli's see any advantage in negotiating with that kind of opposing mindset?

Even so, the Israeli's have attempted to seek out a peace process, and in return, they get kicked to the curb for trying. For them again, what is the advantage, when during every 'hudna', their enemies only take the time to re-arm and wait for the next round? It is because in the jihadist's belief system, where they cannot give up and must die while trying, it is the perennial struggle. And it would never end except for the intervention of the Eternal Sovereign of Israel.

On Israel's behalf, WATCH OUT, for when He shouts 'enough'; then no one attempting to thwart His plans according to His Word will survive the shout.
