Reader comment on item: Does Israel Need a [Peace] Plan?

Mr. Pipes:
Why is transfer "off the table" as an option? The world didn't say a word after the Iraq-Kuwait war when Kuwait emptied itself of 350,000 Palestinian Arabs and Saudi Arabia threw out another 300,000. But let Israel try and do the same, and the world would scream bloody murder. The rules are never the same when it comes to Israel.

Daniel Pipes replies:

1. It is immoral.

2. It will split Israeli society.

3. It will not work, it will not achieve a change of heart.
