For many in Israel, it has been obvious for decades that Arabs do not seek peace with Israel. The Hamas Charter, the PLO Charter, Palestinian Authority (PA) TV, Muslim political and religious leaders all make it clear that the Arab has no interest in any kind of peace with Jewish Israel.
The world doesn’t care about Arab Jew-hate. The world only cares that those damn Jews hate peace, right?
Here’s how that thought-process works: last year, I was interviewed for a news special for Finnish TV. I was told that the topic of discussion was the ‘two-state’ solution. I was asked, why doesn’t Israel want peace? I replied, you ask the wrong question. The correct question is, why does Mahmoud Abbas refuse peace?
Surprised, the interviewer asked, what do you mean? I replied, go visit Mr Abbas. While you’re there, take a look at the Fatah Party logo. It’ll be on display at his office. He’s the leader of Fatah. Look at his logo. It’ll show an artistic rendering of the Arab ‘Palestine’ on a map. The ‘Palestine’ depicted on that map doesn’t sit beside Israel. It replaces Israel. On that map, Israel has disappeared.
Therefore, I said, so long as that logo exists, the Arab will not make peace with Israel. That’s not on the Arab agenda. The Arab agenda is to conquer Israel, not live beside it. Go ask Mr Abbas, why do you want to remove Israel from the map?
My interview never made it to broadcast. It did not, I was told, address the ‘two-state’ question. It was, I was told, off-topic.
Many in Israel understand what the Arab here wants. He wants Jews dead. That’s why Arabs stone Jewish buses in Jerusalem. That’s why Arab youth hurl firebombs at Jewish homes in Jerusalem. That’s why, yesterday, an Arab drove his car into a crowd of Jews waiting at a light-rail train stop—and killed a three-month old infant.
The Arabs don’t want ‘peace with Jews’. That’s not in their lexicon. It’s certainly not in their education curriculum. In school, they’re taught that Jews stole their land. That ‘stolen’ land isn’t ‘Area C’ of Judea-Samaria—the main focus of the ‘two-state’ discussion. It’s Haifa, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Jaffa, Acco, etc—Jewish cities on the Mediterranean coast.
The UN, US and EU all say these cities are and will remain Jewish. They aren’t part of the ‘two-state’ peace negotiation process.
Arabs don’t accept that. They say there’ll be peace only when the entire ‘Zionist entity’ (Jewish Israel) has been ‘liberated’ (see the PLO Charter, Article 22). In case you missed the point, ‘liberated’ means taking that land away from Jews.
The Arabs want the UN, US and EU to help them conquer Israel. But they won’t wait. They want Israel now. They lust for Jerusalem now. That’s why they attack the hated Jew-enemy on the streets of Jerusalem.
Hamas saw nothing wrong with the killing of a three-month old Jewish baby. It reported that 23-year old Abdul-Rahman Al-Shaludi had been killed by [Jewish] settler gunfire in an accident in which “a group of settlers” had been run over in a neighbourhood of “occupied Jerusalem” (“Palestinian driver dies of Israeli gunshot injuries”, Hamas news, October 23, 2014). A Hamas spokesman declared that the attack was “a natural response to the crimes of the occupation and invasion of our land by the Jews” (“Hamas Welcomes Baby's Murder in J'lem Attack”, Arutz Sheva, October 23, 2014).
Then, in answer to the Arab claim that the entire incident was just ‘an accident’, CCTV video at the scene showed how the driver of the car had directed, guided and controlled his vehicle as he drove at high speed through a narrow space and hit the victims without stopping (“Chilling New Video Shows Terror Attack No 'Accident'”, Arutz Sheva, October 23, 2014).
The supposedly ‘moderate’ Palestinian Authority hailed the driver as a “hero” (“Senior Abbas Aid Lauds Jerusalem Terrorist as a 'Heroic Martyr'”, Arutz Sheva, October 23, 2014). That driver wasn’t innocent. He had links to Hamas (“Baby girl killed in Jerusalem is an American, US official says”, Jerusalem Post, October 23, 2014).
This morning (October 23, 2014), Arabs continued their attacks against Jewish children. They attacked a Jewish kindergarten in Jerusalem with stones (“After Infant's Murder, Arabs Attack Jerusalem Kindergarten”, Arutz Sheva, October 23, 2014).
The Arabs want to conquer Israel. They want Jerusalem. They consider Jewish death and injury the price the usurping Jew-pig must pay for ‘stealing’ Jerusalem.
We have buried an innocent infant. Our children are terror targets. The world demonizes us. But it yawns at the Jew-hate that explodes around us in our capital city.
We are under attack.
The G-d of Israel has a Story for you. It’s the Story of the Final Jewish Redemption. Do you think that baby-killing Arabs celebrated as ‘heroes’ will play a role in that Story?
