Dear Dr Pipes,
Commentator M Tovey asks: Where can there be found the solution to allowing Israel to be free from the invectives of the antagonistic attitudes so reported and defended against? Anyone?

I do not know the shape and form of the full path but I can tell the first step: Let us begin calling a spade a spade. If it walks like Islam and if it talks like Islam, then it must be Islam. There is no such thing as Palestinian Authority. It is nothing but Muslim or Islamic Authority. Its purpose is not to create a new nation in that region. Its purpose is to create an Islam-only nation in that region.

If we start calling Palestinian Authority as Muslim Authority, how will we think about it? What will be our reaction to it? What question will we ask it? What arm will we sell to it? What will we teach our kids about it? These are all very important questions. These questions will provide further steps of the solution that M Tovey is looking for.
