Arab Dream Land

Reader comment on item: Israel at Peace

Submitted by EthanP (United States), Dec 16, 2012 at 18:57

I'm less optimistic Daniel. As Lewis and Patai point out, Arabs live in their own world of make believe. Thus the latest Gaza conflict is hailed as a great victory. Soon, they will even believe it.

I remember a 1974 Special Edition from "Aviation Week & Space Technology" It was largely the Egypyian view. Israeli pilots were timid and unprofessional. The only reason Israel survived was the intervention of US pilots. "We were prepared to fight Israel, but not the USA".

So I do not see an end. Islam preaches Jew hatred. It's part of the faith. Combined with the Arab predisposition to ALWAYS blame someone else and it will never be over.
