Breaking the Palestinian’s will to fight

Daniel Polisar of Shalem College in Jerusalem shook the debate over Palestinian-Israeli relations in November 2015 with his essay, “What Do Palestinians Want?” In it, having studied 330 polls to “understand the perspective of everyday Palestinians” toward Israel, Israelis, Jews, and the utility of violence against them, he found that Palestinian attackers are “venerated” by their society—with all that that implies.

He’s done it again with “Do Palestinians Want a Two-State Solution?” This time, he pored over some 400 opinion polls of Palestinian views to find consistency among seemingly contradictory evidence on the topic of ways to resolve the conflict with Israel. From this confusing bulk, Polisar convincingly establishes that Palestinians collectively hold three related views of Israel: it has no historical or moral claim to exist, it is inherently rapacious and expansionist, and it is doomed to extinction. In combination, these attitudes explain and justify the widespread Palestinian demand for a state from “the river to the sea,” the grand Palestine of their maps that erases Israel.

    Israel needs to seize the West AND East bank of the Jordan River, then erect an impenetrable wall and then denounce all the Palestinians as Jordanians and exile them and all Islamic Arabs to outside that wall.
    Then they need to push the Gazaians into the Sinai and erect another impenetrable wall.
    Then they need to seize all of Lebanon and exile all the Shias and Sunnis into Syria and build another wall to keep them out of Lebanon.
    This will inflame the situation for a hundred or more years, but eventually, things will settle down.

    Daniel’s pipe dream.

    It’s the left, peace-niks, imams, the UN and others that are giving the pals false hope… this in-turn fosters a continuation of violence.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    As long as the “international community” keeps putting its money on the Palestinians to finally solve its own Jewish problem, hostilities will continue.

    • Mickey Oberman

      What Jewish problem, Norman?

      I am Jewish.
      Perhaps I can help solve it.

    • Mickey Oberman

      Come on, Norman.
      What is the Jewish Problem that you raised in your letter?
      Please tell us.

    • Mickey Oberman

      Speak up, Norman.
      You seemed so sure of yourself a while ago.
      Exactly what is the Jewish Problem that is bothering the “international community” – or, perhaps, just you?

      • Norman_In_New_York

        The same problem the international community had when it turned a blind eye to Hitler’s genocide, then tried to prevent the Jewish return to their homeland, then tried to deny them the means to fight, then tried to stifle Israel’s military victories, then ,,, well, you get the picture.

        • Mickey Oberman

          Thank you, Norman.
          Now I get the picture.

          Now I do appreciate what you are saying.

          I always dislike the words “The Jewish Problem”.
          Merely by existing and being good, law obeying, creative citizens we are considered a problem.
          The real problem is unjustified, irrational anti Semitism.

          Chag sameach.
          Happy Pesach.
          Shalom. From a Problem.

    So the Israeli solution is to negotiate with them.
    What a bunch of fucking retards.

  • vwVwwVwv

    No such thing as Palestinian anyway.

    you have to learn from islam its weak spot.
    as the only weapon of islam is the womb of
    their woman, than the muhamedamn woman
    is islam’s weakest point. the womb of western
    woman, by the way is our soft spot and main
    target of multiple enemys of the west
    like socialism, feminism and
    MUHAMEDAMNISM.

    if israel makes military service for muslim girls as obligatory as for jewish
    and raises marriage age up to 18 you will see an exodus,
    if they arrest all woman of a community
    terror was comitted from and
    question them for days
    by man, terror will stop immediately.

    Three grossly inaccurate reasons that they know are not true.
    What does one do with such errors?
    They are completely erased, disregarded and forgotten.
