The Arabs will never ever accept Israel

Reader comment on item: Is Netanyahu Turning Left?

Submitted by Ken Besig (Israel), Jul 9, 2013 at 07:37

The simple and painful truth is that Netanyahu could offer the Palestinians everything they demand, completely surrender, and withdraw from everywhere and the Palestinians would still reject any settlement with Israel. The Palestinians have only one goal and that is a complete military victory over Israel which would result in the total destruction of Israel and the genocide of all the Jews here.

Indeed, what Kerry and the rest of the American administrations fail to understand is that for Abbas and the Palestinians, the peace negotiations are simply another front in their genocidal war to destroy Israel and the Jewish People here. For the Palestinians the diplomatic efforts are not a failure, they just have not achieved their aims, yet.

This is the same situation regarding Syria. The Syrians would like the Golan Heights back under their control, but by no means would they make peace with Israel to get the Heights back. The Syrian goal is the same as the goals of the Palestinians, the destruction of Israel and the genocide of the Jewish People.

Thus it makes no practical political or diplomatic difference what Israel offers or what compromises Israel suggests, the Arabs will only accept the destruction of Israel and the Jewish People, period.
