Palestinian or Muslim vitriol?

Reader comment on item: Poll: Israelis Find the Security Establishment "Too Timid"

Submitted by Prashant, Aug 9, 2019 at 06:20

Dear Dr Pipes, The above blog refers to, 'relentless Palestinian vitriol and violence'. Why do we hide this vitriol and violence under the Euphemism 'Palestinian' when in fact it is 'Muslim'? Not even one percent of Muslims in the world would support Israel against Palestinian violence. All Islamic countries stand up unified in favor of the, so called, Palestinian cause. Palestinian violence cannot exist without Islamic support. We should drop the euphemism Palestinian and should just call it 'Islamic' which is what it is.

Islamic self-chosen isolationism is palpably visible. In every country where Muslims exist they create voting blocks, demand special writes, choose different languages to speak --tied to religion--, tell everyone that Islam is the best religion. And in every country where they are in majority, they do not practice democracy and use the state to protect and advance Islam. How long will the world allow this fracas to continue?

It is the responsibility of every thinking individual of the world to speak up against it; not because it impacts him or her but because it is just plain wrong. Islamic self-chosen isolationism is just plain wrong!

Daniel Pipes replies:

Palestinians are not just any Muslims; they display a vitriol and violence that is unique. They are radicalized more than any other Muslim people.
