The Consequences of Appeasement to the Arabs
The decisions made by the government of Israel since The six day war of 1967 leading up to today's Gaza war with Hamas July 2014, as well as those of the first ten months or so after the turnover of Gaza in 2004 began, have dumbfounded historians ever since. The appeasement of the Arabs-Palestinians, in particular, has been so often held up as an example of how not to deal with a rising terrorism that it has become a stereotype.

Had Israel stood its ground and responded to terrorism or any violence with utmost force. Israel would not be facing todays crisis.

As many have said - appeasement, concessions and lack of proper response to terrorism is detrimental to Israel and its people and the Jewish people worldwide.

What the Arabs could not win in a war they won in playing the peace game, all the while building up arsenals and educating their children to hate and to destroy Israel. While enriching their own pockets with the billions contributed by the world to help the impoverished Arab-Palestinian.
What a scheme - and the gullible world is buying it hook line and sinker.

When will the World learn that the Arabs cannot be trusted, I hope before the Arabs take over Europe and than the United States and Canada.

Daniel Pipes replies:

You are right. Israel has had miserable leadership since 1992. Fortunately, Netanyahu seems to be making mostly the right moves now.
