The Current Peace Plan: Turn The West Bank Into A No-Go Zone

Reader comment on item: The Danger of Partial No-go Zones to Europe

Submitted by Dave (United States), Dec 29, 2015 at 12:52

In speaking of exclusively Muslim no-go zones, we should also include a prospective one: Judea and Samaria, or the West Bank. This key demand by the PA and the Arab League, which demands that all Jewish presence cease beyond the 1947 armistice lines, attractively presented in an anti-imperialist guise as being aimed at the Israeli "occupation", effectively means that the West Bank will be as exclusively Muslim as Mecca.

The rocket and terror attacks against all of Israel betrays the true, unlimited nature of this demand. It's hardly surprising that this transparent bid for total Islamic domination has resonated with the current crop of weaklings, self-haters and anti-Semites in so many of the world's capitals.

The outrageous hypocrisy involved can perhaps best be illustrated by imagining the reverse situation. What if white, Christian Europeans were to settle parts of Muslim countries and then proceed to beat up and attack Muslim authority figures who tried to intrude? What if Israel started demanding that there be Muslim-free areas for there to be peace? The condemnations would be deafening.

It's high time that the West stop tolerating a double standard which is blind to Islamic arrogance.

Daniel Pipes replies:

You are pointing to something related, namely a Judenrein West Bank. But that's not the same as a no-go zone nor does it exclude non-Muslims in the way that Mecca and Medina do.
