Support for Arafat's Vview

Reader comment on item: Imperial Israel: The Nile-to-Euphrates Calumny

Submitted by Arthur (Palestinian Authority), Sep 26, 2012 at 09:26

It seems to me that Pipes secretly supports Arafat's contention about Israel's not so secret plans ... Pipes writes: "While Revisionist Zionists did claim Jordan and parts of Lebanon and Syria as a part of Eretz Yisrael during the Mandatory period, no Zionist ever laid claim to or sought to control Egypt, Sudan or Iraq, much less Mecca and the Persian Gulf." And who is in power now? Direct descendants of the Revisionists. Pipes continues: "Revisionists only demand now that Israel not give up any part of Eretz Yisrael already under its control." So much for a two-state solution. Arafat was right, it turns out.

Daniel Pipes replies:

What kind of reasoning is this?

If it needs my saying so, here goes: I do not support Arafat's contention about alleged Israeli plans to expand to Mecca, etc.
