IMPORTANT NUMBERS

Reader comment on item: Palestinians Who Prefer Israel

Submitted by DAVID PA (United States), Jan 2, 2008 at 11:43

FIRST I WISH TO EXTEND TO OUR HOST A VERY HAPPY NEWS YEAR!

These numbers are important and I dare say that they are not a new trend or reality. If these numbers reflect the mindset of the population who call themselves Palestinians, then it seems clear to me that these people have never had representation by their leaders form the start. Thus the Jimmy Carters of the world who go to the Pa-Plo and declare that there has been a democratic election are actually lying.

The US government that is usually quick to announce the same so too is lying. The Principals of democract is not in the way an election is to be held, but rather in the pre-amble and the bill of rights, and most importantly that those Prinicpals are agreed upon by the vast majority of the population. Without a declaration of the highest values of a democratic society. ie. LIFE, LIBERTY AND PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS there is no democracy.

The PA-PLO creed is currently viewed as a declaration of independence from Israel, With the right to overthrow the Government and the state of Israel. This position has been bought by at least 4/5 of the world's nations and even 2/5 of the US. The problem, this is tanatamount o saying not only do the American colonies rebels have the right to kick and the British, but they havge the right to kick the British out of Britain. In addition to this sad insanity, the Pa-Plo teaches and inforces that Israel is causing them their hardships. Imagine for a moment if Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson spoke to the American people and told them since we are captives of the British we must fight the French and then declared war on France!

I postulate that there is no peace to be had, no matter how many guns or how much money is sent to the Pa-Plo, until the leaders renounce their charters and draw up a charter based on the principals of democracy and harmony with all it's neighbors. As the Pa-Plo have refused to do this and have taken their people hostage to live in squallor and blame others, living by the Hamas Charter created by the Muslim brotherhood, the only hope for the "Palestinians" is to rebel against their captors, the Palestinains in charge, and create a democracy. What are the chances for this to occur in the Middle east? Not as good as selling sun-tan lotion in Iceland.
