Acceptance of Israel in the ME requires perseverance, may take centuries

Reader comment on item: When Arab Politicians' Shouts and Whispers Contradict

Submitted by Alex B (Canada), Dec 4, 2022 at 19:43

It does not take to be as wise as King Solomon to realize that when someone says one thing loudly in public and whispers the opposite in private that the loud utterance is what he means while the whisper is a deception. It is a Moslem way to keep the cake and eat it simultaneously. It is not as difficult to behave like that since they follow the Koran imitating Allah that "IS THE GREATEST OF THE DECEIVERS" (Koran 3:54 and 8:30).

Israel's Arab adversaries took advantage of the gullibility of Israel's leaders to reverse Arab loss in war by hinting that Israel's goodwill be rewarded by its recognition as a Jewish state. Israel was not alone that fell into this trap. All western leadership was talked into believing that Islam means peace, in spite that Koran unambiguously and explicitly states the opposite.

I am quite concerned about Israel's enthusiastic adoption of the Abraham accord as a done deal.

The Israeli public is acting too fast and too noisily. Pushing the Israeli leadership to cast aside prudence. Let's hope that it will not end badly. How many partners in the Abraham accord voted against the recent UN Nakba resolution? It is a clear indication that the Abraham accord is a case of talking loudly to the Muslim public and whispering the opposite to Israel.
