Kedar is exactly right ...

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

Submitted by Bram (United States), Feb 2, 2018 at 13:24

You minimize Moshe Kedars vast familiarity with all things Middle Eastern and Arab and Islamic by referring to him as "Mordechai Kedar, a distinguished specialist of the Middle East" when his credentials speak to his thorough knowledge of the subjects he address.

He an Israeli scholar of Arabic literature and a lecturer at Bar-Ilan University. A senior research associate at the Begin-SadatCenter for Strategic Studies.
He served for 25 years in IDF military intelligence specializing in Syria, Arab political discourse, Arab mass media,Islamic groups, and Israeli Arabs, and is an expert on the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist groups.

So he is more then well prepared to deal with the lies, propaganda and hatred of the Arabs.

Now then. Making them learn to live with it is not the same as when spoken about in the Western arena. He wants the Arabs to realize that not only will they not defeat the Jewish state, but in saying this, he heaps fiery coals on top of their heads. To demoralize them to the extent that the Arabs in Israels liberated territories leave for greener pastures, Eurabia perhaps, and those Arab Israelis living as citizens there to not even think their knifing and stabbing attacks will get them anything but a bulldozed home.

Back when Israel had strong leaders like Ben Gurion, no Arab would have thought to send their kids to kick and yell abuse at Israeli soldiers. Thats because they have not been taught that their attempts to humiliate will fall right back on them. As when China forces Muslims to stay open on Fridays and to eat and drink alcohol on Ramadan. Its not persecution. Its to keep their moral low so that China wont end up like Western Europe. That they have no hope of establishing any Caliphate anywhere near China. Which is good for the West.

You dont see how you enable the problem by referring to Arafat's kids as "Falsetinians" as though they were a legitimate nation and not a creation of their murderous Egyptian bossman. Arabs have said time and again since 1948, that these refugee, formerly "Southern Syrians" are part of the greater Arab nation. Their family names betray their land of origin, Al Masri Egypt, Al Yamani, Yemen etc etc.

Kedar is right, not only do the Arabs have to resign themselves to an eternal Israel, but to literally eat the fact so that they choke on it.
