I regret I must agree with ariel. Regretfully because Dr. Pipes is usually right and I may be wrong. But I must agree that the two-state solution, that is implied, needlessly gives up much Jewish and Christian heritage. This is an area that includes the Western Wall, Rachel's Tomb, the Tomb of the Patriarchs, the three thousand year old Mount of Olives Cemetery and many Christian sites in and around Bethlehem. Why can Israel and the Christian and Jewish religions expect any better treatment from the fake Palestinians than they received from the Jordanians when they were in control. Thirty eight thousand tombstones destroyed or defaced, 58 synagogues destroyed and a latrine built against the holiest site in the world for Judaism, the Western Wall of the Temple Mount.

There is another reason too. It won't work. The two states won't be the end of it. The two state solution is like the two-tribe solution between the Muslims and the Quraysh, a Jewish tribe. Early on, the Quraysh were too strong for the Muslims so Mohammed decided to enter into a treaty -- the treaty of Huddibyah. Then there came a time when the Muslim tribe grew stronger and Mohammed found a reason to cancel the treaty. His tribe subjugated the Quraysh and when they surrendered, the Quraysy males had their hands tied behind their backs. Then Mohammed gave the order to cut off all their heads. In fact that was fortunate for the male adult Quraysh, because they didn't have to see their wives and daughters raped and dragged off to private harems, and the young children required to be Muslims under sharia.

It is quite well known among scholars of the East, who have read Sheik Abdullah Azzam, that priority must be given to conquering infidels who are in control of any area that was once a part of the dar al Islam. The battle in Palestine, has a religious motivation; it is not motivated by secular nationalism. Even Benny Morris now realizes this. The efforts of the Soviet dezinformatsia were quite successful in making the West Believe that the Arabs local to Palestine were a people like the Basques and Kurds, and like them, wanted political self determination.

But that was a scam, cleverly executed by Brezhnev who thought he could fool Jimmy Carter and he did. He told Arafat to PRETEND to renounce violence, and to PRETEND to seek a peace agreement. Arafat initially didn;t want to pursue that path but he was persuaded by Brezhnev that if he told that to the West they would cover him with gold and glory. He was right. They did. Six billion in his Swiss account and the Nobel Peace Prize.

Ceaucescu, who was a master of dissimulation, warned Arafat that he would have to pretend over and over again. Abbas is still pretending. The Arabs, masquerading as the Palestinian People, don't want their own state, what they want is to get rid of the remaining Jews in the rest of Palestine. Arafat was once addressing an Arab crowd in which many criticized him for negotiating with the Jews. He winked, and said in Arabic, Huddibiyah -- rember Huddibiyah. I have given up on Remembering the massacre at the Alamo. I leave that to the Texans.

So now, when I think of the two state solution, I remember the Quraysh. and even some times think of the Atalena. when dealing with the politically correct who insist of giving up more land. Abbas Zaki, the member of the Central Committee of Fatah also believes that if Israle falls back on the Green Line that is an Armistice line and not a boundary line, it wil collapse. The say Mahmoud Abbas Agrees with him that is the case. In any event there will be another solution coming along soon, that will be able to form a law abiding sate West of the Jordan.
