NOT the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, but the Israeli-Arab conflict

Reader comment on item: The Palestinian-Israeli War: Where It Came From, and How to End It

Submitted by Dr RJP (United States), Mar 22, 2006 at 16:42

The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict is a PR invention to foster the myth of a Palestinian people and a Palestinian homeland first originated by Yassir Arafat. Paestinians are no different than Jordanian Arabs, and in fact, Jordan is the de facto Palestrinian state. So, the first step to ending this madness is to properly name this conflict: it is the ongoing Arab-Israeli War.

The present problem began long before Oslo when, after the Six-Day War in 1967, General Moshe Dayan encouraged the Paesltinians to stay and live in the captured lands rather than vacate them as they were all prepared to do. Israel could have had annexed Sinai, Gaza, the Golan Heights, the West Bank, and Jerusalem all at the same time.

Jordan -- the REAL Palestinian state -- could easily have absorbed all of the Palestinians from the West Bank while Egypt could have easily absorbed all of the Palestinians living in the Sinai and Gaza.

Now, the Israeli-Arabs are the fifth column of the Arab enemy, set to destroy Israel from within.

Another Arab-Israeli war is on the horizon, and defeat is not an option. If Hamas and its followers seek war, then they will get their wish. But, what they will not get is a place to live in Israel.
