The Palestinian issue is inseparable from the global war with Islamic radicalism.

Reader comment on item: "[Symposium] On the Strip: Where To Go from Gaza?"

One of the common misconceptions in the past used to be that as soon as the Palestinian problem gets solved, the Middle East will stop boiling. Well today this illusion is less and less common, as the Arabs, and the radical Islam are making more and more obvious that their agenda is much wider than just the Palestinian issue.

Today, it is becoming clear that the Palestinians' struggle is only part of the global Jihad to wiping out Western civilization. As Prof. Pipes has pointed out correctly on several occasions, the real Arab objective is not establishment of another exclusively Arab Palestinian state in the region, but rather the wiping out of the only existing Jewish State of Israel.
