  • Is a Diplomatic Solution Really Possible? – Yoel Meltzer
    (dailyalert.org, Jan. 30, 2015)
  • The reason there has not been a diplomatic solution between Jews and Arabs west of the Jordan River is that at its core the more than 100-year conflict is not a land dispute. Since for several centuries the entire region was under Islamic control, then it is quite understandable that any non-Islamic sovereign entity will never be accepted. According to Mordechai Nisan, a retired lecturer in Middle East Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, “Islam rejects Jewish sovereignty, Arabism rejects Zionism.”
    The larger Arab/Islamic world will never accept a sovereign Jewish state in its midst. This is the truth that needs to be internalized if Israel wishes to continue to survive. This does not mean to imply that there are not good-intentioned Arabs or Muslims in the local region. Nevertheless, as a group they have no influence on the frightening trends that are sweeping the Middle East. For Israel, in the face ofjihad – and that’s really what Israel is up against – capitulations are an act of suicide. (Ynet News)
