Reader comment on item: Is Israel Victory Still Needed?

Submitted by Debanjan Banerjee (India), Nov 23, 2020 at 22:59

Dear Dr Pipes,

On account of Israeli victory over Palestinians, I would like to congratulate you over Israeli conquest of the Gulf Arabs. I have always supported the rights of self-determination of the Palestinian people over their own land in this forum. I did support the Palestinian rights not because I hated Jews but I thought Palestinian plight after 1948 resembled the plight of the Jewish refugees in Holocaust/Shoah.

However since most UAE and Saudis have decided to surrender I also feel that it is futile to fight against Israel that is just too strong at this moment of history. However as a victor I feel you must show compassion and empathy to the defeated and humiliated Palestinian people. So I therefore request you to give your agreement on the three following essentials.

1. Please do not perform genocide or further displacement of the Palestinian people. Please don't unleash Mossad or IDF on them for genocide.

2. Since the 2-state solution is dead, please grant equal citizenship and voting rights to Palestinians in Israel. Please don't discriminate against them. Instead make them equal citizens of Israel. Please make Israel one democratic state that offers equal rights to all it's citizens.

3. Since the GCC and Arab League are dead, I request you to create a single economic union from Egypt to Yemen. Israel will lead this union simply because of its victory over the GCC. I suggest to name this new state United States of Abrahamia.

I eagerly await your feedback over my proposals. Thanks and regards with best wishes.
