Official Arab and Palestinian recognition of the legitimate right of the Jewish People to establish a sovereign Jewish nation on so called Arab Islamic land would be the greatest international victory against Islamism ...

This is a very interesting perspective.

In a sense, recognition of Israel is a sort of "test".

It's not possible to be an Islamist AND recognise Israel.

It's not possible to recognise Israel AND be an Islamist.

You can tell a lot about a person's appreciation and acceptance of liberty and democracy based on their attitude towards a country such as Israel. Also by seeing their attitude towards the USA.

Thanks.
