Reader comment on item: Why Palestinian Delusions Persist

Submitted by ephraim lior (United States), Nov 13, 2017 at 14:08

While agreeing with all parts of this analysis, I'd like to note one important omission.
It is understandable why Islamic countries are willing to support Palestinian Arabs in their relentless struggle with Palestinian Jews. However, international one-sided assessment of this struggle and support of that one side, which is not Jewish, cannot be explained and understood without mentioning the latent antisemitism inherited from generations of Christian animosity toward Jews and multiplied with Muslims' one.

Without eradicating or inhibiting this obstacle Israeli victory will continue to be challenged, most likely militarily., and, perhaps, with even more vigor, resources, and determination.

Christians have been mostly hostile toward Israel? I don't think so.
