in response to reader comment: Dr. Daniel Pipes Explicxitly means "No Colonialism Over the Palestinians"

The issue of Palestine-Israel is very complex and Islam is only a part of that conflict.

Without going into detail about it, I would love to remind you that Israel needs to abolish this concept that she needs to maintain a Jewish majority at all costs and she should use military repression to achieve it.

The asymmetrical use of force by Israel against Palestinians for last 70 years have not made the Palestinians accept defeat. In other words Israel's military might has failed to accomplish victory for her over the Palestinians.

So the use of oppression and militarism by Israel is outdated and completely useless in this regard.

What Israel needs to do is to allow a bi-national state with equal rights for all i.e. Arab or Jew.

On the question of India and Pakistan I need to tell you that Pakistan just last week elected a lower-caste Hindu woman from extremely poor family as a senator. So this disproves your notion that there are no Hindus in Pakistan
