Conrad Black: The Palestinians should take what they can get while they can

From Toronto’s “Jerusalem” Protest.

“…All has changed in the Middle East. The Palestinians no longer benefit from the patronage of the Arab leaders to keep the pot boiling with Israel — they were happy to be cannon fodder, to prevent the improvement of the wretched settler camps or the resettlement of their inhabitants, as long as it made them personally rich and world famous. They could have had a Palestinian state any time in the last 40 years if they had been prepared to recognize the right of Israel to exist as a Jewish state, its raison d’être. They preferred celebrity and violence and some of their leaders have called for a new Intifada this week; presumably, this time, the population will have the intelligence to resist the call — it’s not as if the last two Intifadas were a howling success. They have been abandoned by their former patrons and Israel is geometrically stronger than it was even 20 years ago, not at all isolated, and not threatened by Iraq and Syria.”

    How about giving them what they deserve? Nothing!

      Indeed since they already have a state called Jordan, plus the fact that they are all Arabs with no particular culture or language which separates them from the other Arabs.

        Even among arabs, palesimian “culture” is bloodthirsty and depraved.

    • What you said.

      Considering they carry the mind virus called Islam and will not root it out with critical thinking and truth…yeah let them die in obscurity eating sand.

        Inbreeding does that to people.

    I love it when Muslims blame 9/11 on jews . Even they knew that muslims are too stupid to have pulled it off.

    • barryjr

      Good one.

    The problem is the “better (even more fanatic) muslims” who have been biding their time would turn out the mobs if any of the less insane thugs now ruling their shitholes tried to finesse a Sadat style accommodation without an expiry date and even bigger bribes in prospect.

    We need to ignore their tantrums for 10 years
