Palestinians: Israel’s Goodwill Gestures Send Wrong Messages

Palestinian terrorists who were released from prison by Israel as a “goodwill gesture” are honored at Mahmoud Abbas’ presidential compound in Ramallah, on October 30, 2013. According to statistics, at least half of released Palestinian prisoners have returned to terrorism. (Photo by Oren Ziv/Getty Images)

Here is what is being said on the Palestinian street: Today Israel runs away from the West Bank or the Gaza Strip; tomorrow Israel will run away from Ashkelon, then from Tel Aviv and from there to the sea, and we have achieved our goal of destroying Israel. Therefore, we need to continue attacking Israel.

    The Arabs/Muslims only seem to understand one thing – force. Every few years they get chutzpadik and Israel is forced to kick their asses and then there is peace until they start to get chutzpadik again (they tend to forget the “ass whipping” they received and need to be taught a lesson again).
    The liberal West can’t seem to grasp the concept that you can’t make peace with someone who doesn’t want to recognize that you even exist.

      Muslims see anybody who wants to discuss or compromise to be weak and see that as an opportunity to demand more and attack.

      It is their nature and any compromises are seen by them as capitulations by dhimmis.

      It is time to treat them as the fifth columnist invaders they are.

      Europe is learning this the hard way with its refugees.

        Well, the refugees are trying their hardest to educate Europeans as to the danger of unrestricted immigration of a hostile culture, but the European politicians seem to be really, really slow learners or just plain sadists.

      The muslims see the world through the lens of their culture, and acclaim their survival after a war against Israel as a great victory. The reason for this is two-fold: a) a culture of Honour/Shame would not allow them to admit defeat, and b) they see the Israeli not genociding them as a case of inability instead of choice. Thus they celebrate their survival, as if they had a huge say in it.
