If you support the 'Palestinians'....
Peter Wehner asks some good questions about the 'Palestinians,' including the one above, writes some things with which I disagree, and then comes up with this home run
at the end.
Those who profess solidarity with the Palestinian people and want them
to live lives of dignity and peace—which is an admirable and humane
impulse—should focus their energy and efforts less on Israel and more on
replacing the political elite and reforming the political culture of
Palestinians who will not let their burning hatred for the Jewish state
dim, even for a moment. Unless and until that happens, no amount of
Israeli good will and no amount of territorial concessions will lead to
peace. It will, in fact, only inflame the passions of Israel’s enemies
and draw the Jewish and Palestinian people closer to days of violence,
days of mourning, days of war. Surely that is something that those who
long to be peacemakers and agents of reconciliation should understand.
Indeed. There's really nothing to talk about right now.
