Israel Reunited

Reader comment on item: Annexing the West Bank Would Hurt Israel

Submitted by Andy M (United Kingdom), May 10, 2020 at 03:40

Much as I respect Mr Pipes' writing I disagree with him on this occasion. There is an historical inevitability about uniting Judea and Samaria with the rest of Israel. The Palestinians have made no attempt to live in peace with their neighbours. Look at the Gaza Strip - there can be no more glaring example of the dangers of inventing a Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria. Unite all of Israel. Offer the locals a choice - get over it or leave. Caroline Glick's book on this is excellent. Trump respects strength as do Sunni arabs. Israel has nothing to fear from boldness.
