Reader comment on item: Palestinian Statehood Is Acceptable ... Eventually

Submitted by Surak (United States), May 22, 2017 at 15:52

"I thank Martin Sherman for the invigorating debate and suggest that we close it here." Bow to each other, shake hands, smile for the audience, and walk away.

Then watch the sadly misinformed Muslims commit jihad, hijack airplanes, detonate shrapnel bombs, impose sharia, gang rape, female genital mutilation, honor killings. How can so many people be so confused? This includes the many clearly peaceful and moderate Muslims, like the half of American Muslims who support sharia, or the quarter who admit to supporting jihad.

To the ostensible topic of the article: there are two states already in Palestine. One (Jordan) occupies 78% of Palestine; Jews are forbidden from purchasing land there, on pain of death. The remaining 22% includes Israel, plus other land not yet allocated to a state. That area is half the size of San Bernardino County, CA.

... a serious understanding of Qur'an 9:5 and 9:29, the verses of the sword, which demand that all non-believers in Islam must convert, submit, or die. This is not negotiable. There will be no peace with the dar al-Islam until Muslims reject the Sunna/Hadith and the Medinan suras of the Qur'an.
