Mr. Pipes,
Your argument is interesting but the thing is Israel may in very near future decide to deport Arabs from it's controlled lands . The reasons behind

1. Demographic(Israeli Arabs and Palestinians are already 40% of total population of Israel and they are growing)
2. Political (Israeli Arabs are increasingly turning against Israel's policies towards the Palestinians)
3. Economic (For simple economics Israel cannot feed all it's citizens in the future with it's available resources , so to presumably save it's Jews it has to deport it's Arabs)

---- The interesting thing is if Israel does decide to transfer Arabs from its controlled territories what will be your own position ? Will you support or oppose it ?

Daniel Pipes replies:

I think I made my position pretty clear in this blog. I oppose it.

There are many ways to skin the cat. In particular, whe Palestinians really do end their war to eliminate Israel, majority-Muslim areas in today's Israel can be put under Muslim rule.
