Helping Israel Achieve Lasting Peace with M-E Arabs

Reader comment on item: Poll: American Jews Find Clinton Too Tough on Israel

Submitted by Sher Mohammad (China), Oct 23, 2005 at 10:44

According to Israelis' own admission they're still in a state of "exile". Also, they're under a sacred "oath" to their God, Yahweh, to wait for the Messiah. He would restore them to the biblical lands of Judea and Samaria, through a miraclea nd rebuild the "Temple". The religious orthodox Jews, therefore, do not accept creation of "Israel" as legitimate. Furthermore, there is an imminent exodus of the American Jewry waiting to happen, which is likely to end up in the WB of Palestine. The fallout of it in America is likely to create an unprecedented catastrophe. On the other hand a "civil war" in Israel is also a possibility.

The Palestinians are reminded that the state of Israel is already "one too many" in Palestine. The Jerusalem -- "Al Quds Al Sharif" -- is marked for the battlefiled of "Armageddon". They and the whole Muslim Ummah share a consensus on an authenticated "Hadith" of the Prophet of Islam about the "assembly of the world Jewry" in the holy land, coinciding with the descent of Jesus Christ. Israelis are not unaware of the stirrings in America, where some three million crazy Evangelicals and Presbyrereans are itching to swamp Jerusalem to witness the "Second Coming" first-hand.

Judaism's fate is intertwined with Islam. They have lived and faced massacres in Jerusalem with Muslims ever since the Caliph Umar ended their banishment and allowed their settlement in full freedom of their religion. Saladin repeated the act by freeing them from the hands of the Crusaders.

A plausible solution of the Jewish problem lies in regularising Israelis presence in the Holy Land by giving them a de facto recognition and thereby fending off from them a divine retribution. Israelis and Arabs have lived together before. Let them do so in future.
