To sum it all up. Mr. Melik blames the Israelis and the U.S. in particular for the dismal state the Palestinians find themselves in. However, the true culprits are the corrupt leaders (Yasser Arafat immediately comes to mind) the Palestine people have been saddled with ever since the state of Israel was established.

The stated goal of the Arab states was to "push Israel into the sea", thus the 6-day war and subsequent terrorist attacks against the Jewish state. Israel has always been an affront to Islam-a Jewish state in the midst of Dar Al Islam-how dare a country whose Jewish citizens, they say, are descended from apes and pigs (and which is the only democratic state in the region, whose Arab Muslim residents are freer and much better off than any but the aristocracy in the Arab countries) be permitted to exist.

That is the true root of the Palestinians' woes- they are kept in abject misery by their Arab neighbors so they can be manipulated to be "useful idiots" in the war against Israel. In my opinion, the worst atrocities are perpetrated against little children in Palestinian schools, where they are brainwashed with the philosophy of jihad and taught that the greatest blessings they will ever receive is becoming martyrs for Allah by strapping explosive vests replete with nails and ball bearings on their bodies and blowing up and maiming innocent israeli men, women and children, being told that they will have 72 virgins in the hereafter. What is worse, their parents are in many cases filled with joy and wish that they could contribute more children to this demented cause---
