NO FLY ZONE - To be imposed by Israel?

Reader comment on item: Middle East Provocations and Predictions

Dear Daniel Pipes

1. How about Israel. together with the United States, Imposing a "No Fly Zone" on the boarder of Israel and Syria?

2. Perhaps, eventually, it could also be a refuges for Syrians, Syrian Palestinians, and Palestinians?

I imagine that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will never be ressolved unless the issue of the "eternal" Palestinian refugee status is disposed off. And what better solution is there than reviving the Syrian status of Palestinians which existed at the time of the Ottoman Empire before the establishment of the British Mandate as a consequence of World War I.

Are we not now in the "Muslim Reformation" ? Does Islam really need a Third Holy Site besides the ones in Mecca and Medina?

Theocratic Shia Teheran needs to be removed from Israel's North - and the possibility of of uniting with with Sunni Egypt and Sunni Saud Arabia now exits for Israel.

I'm suggesting that Israel be pro-active; it is time now, or very soon, for Israel to engage with others to bring neighborly Arrabs and Arab States into the Modern World. And that will never happen if a solution to the displaced "Palestinian or Syrian Arabs" are given a home without the status of "refugees." That can, perhaps, be done by "cleansing" southern Syria of its "terrorists," including Lebanese Hezbollah and the Iranian Revolutionary Corps.

So maybe when Obama is out of office, and a Republican President is in place in the United States, the two countries, US and Israel, can create a No Fly Zone in southern Syria free of terrorism and Assad tyranny?

I admit that it takes Chutzpah to do this. But the Startup state of Israel has lots of that!

Consider the view of a young Muslim Egyptian student regarding the reason for hating Israel:


So, Daniel Pipes, what do you think of my suggestion?
