Reader comment on item: Ending a Century of Palestinian Rejectionism

Submitted by PezDispenser (Israel), Oct 27, 2015 at 08:03

Dr. Pipes,

1. Why did one book convince you of Husseini's so-called "central role" when other Holocaust historians of fine reputation write that the decision for the Final Solution was made before the Hitler-Husseini meeting?

2. Are there any other precedents of history other than Germany of de-radicalizing a society gone bezerk? If not, are there lessons from the de-Nazification program that can be utilized for the Palestinians?

3. What gives you hope that the outside world, which tends to be a quiet partner to the Palestinian warmongering against Israel, will change their attitude? No amount of barbarous behavior by Palestinians has so far stopped the support. Arguably the support has increased since the Oslo Accords.

Daniel Pipes replies:

  1. The documentation and the logic convince me.
  2. Japan for starters.
  3. The current efforts are failing. At some point, there will be a shift in approach.
