you deal with Kedar, not his premises

Reader comment on item: "Arabs and Muslims Will Never Accept Israel as the Jewish State"

Submitted by Dan Seidel (United States), Feb 2, 2018 at 12:05

You do not answer his two issues/questions, and I agree with his propositions, and his hope the arabs and muslims will change their tunes. what do you say about the Qur'an and the inability of islam to forever, or at all, accept a permanent Jewish State in the midst of the umah? Do you not agree with Zuhdi Jasser on the need for reform of islam? and then the BIG question (accepting that premise): how and where does one start with that? Israel either gets a hudna or tahdia, never anything more....... unless the hopes we have come to fruition and islam really does reform. Shabbat Shalom.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Kedar is right that there are powerful forces arraigned against acceptance of the Jewish state. But there is no reason to assume that these are permanent. I can even imagine their sudden collapse.
