Entire conflict explained in less than 20 lines

Reader comment on item: My Peace Plan: An Israeli Victory

Submitted by G Marcus (United States), May 1, 2010 at 05:07

Based on immutable Islamic theological dogma, the waging of a
Holy War (Jihad) against Infidel nations is every Muslim's command,
with Infidels to be given 3 CHOICES:

(a) Embrace Islam;

(b) Submit to Islamic rule as jizya-paying, protected, though
oppressed, Dhimmi minority ("One-State Solution");

(c) Endless war until death and destruction.

Arab leaders know well that if they break above rules their verdict
is certain death - see Abdullah I of Jordan, Anwar Sadat, or what
Arafat was afraid of at Camp David II, or Abu-Mazen is today.

There are only 3 REMEDIES to counter this:

(a) Decisively defeat Arab/Muslim Jihadists, confining them beyond
defined and enforceable natural boundaries (happened in history
only in Iberia, Sicily, Malta, Russia, Ottoman Europe);

(b) Sign temporary truce (Hudna), which Arab/Muslim Jihadists are
allowed for up to 10 years, until stronger and able to stage more
lethal assault (back to Sq. 1!);

(c) Evacuate and emigrate to another land (but they might catch up!).

Take your pick!

There it is: Entire foundation of 14 centuries of Arab Imperialism -

including the Arab-Israel conflict - explained in less than 20 lines.

Everything else is just empty talk...
