Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice met with Arafat’s slicker Fatah comrade, President Mahmoud Abbas, on January 14th and promised that she has heard Arab demands for a stronger American hand to guide peace efforts with Israel. An Associated Press report quoted her on January 15th as stating, “I have heard loud and clear…You will have my commitment to do precisely that.”
In other words, it’s throw the Jew down the well time again.
Think about it…
What people or nation would be pressured to negotiate with enemies still dedicated to their destruction ?
Not many, right? Although Kurds come to mind also.
Condi’s crew now expects Kurds--who have been subjugated and murdered by the hundreds of thousands by Arabs over the last century--to supply fighters to help keep Arabs of different stripes from blowing each other apart to the south in the name of the artificial, failed, Yugoslavian-type state known as Iraq.
It makes no difference that neither variation of Arabs--in their own words--have any intention to treat fellow Muslim but non-Arab Kurds as equals.
Arab nationalism has--and always will--win out over an inherently flawed, synthetic Iraqi nationalism, and if the Kurds don’t play ball, the Shi’a in Iraq will eventually do to them what the Sunni have repeatedly done after the Islamic Republic of (Arab) Iraq is set up upon America‘s withdrawal. Just look to the east. Kurds have repeatedly been massacred there in the name of Shi’a Iranian nationalism. And Arabs see most, if not all, of this region as “purely Arab patrimony.”
Back to the well…
Condi & Co. are inflating the Road Crap-er Map-balloon again.
Many others have already commented on Abbas’ recent statements calling on Hamas and Fatah to stop killing each other and to turn their guns once again on Jews. And Condi and the Foggy Folks act as if they’re deaf, dumb, and blind. Indeed, she’s now planning to supply additional scores of millions of dollars in arms to her buddy Abbas.
But, fear not…there will be “assurances.” Like those she gave on television about Hizbullah being disarmed in Lebanon last summer, during “phase two” of the cease fire.
Right…And I’m the Passover Bunny.
Recall that Abbas won his own “moderate” presidency running on a platform calling for Israel’s destruction (but by more acceptable means), and all his government agencies, maps, schools, media, etc. and so forth depict the Arabs‘ 22nd state, “Palestine,” taking the place of--not living side-by-side with--Israel. All of this and more are well known. At least Hamas is honest about its murderous, rejectionist intentions.
But, never mind…
Abbas and Fatah--whose constitution still doesn’t recognize Israel’s right to exist, no matter what their worldwide whitewashers say--are the Jews’ State Department-designated “peace” (of the grave) partners.
State--with approval from the White House--has repeatedly pressured Israel to unilaterally cave in to Arab demands.
Not long before Prime Minister Ariel Sharon had his horrendous stroke, as just one of many earlier examples, reports told of Condi screaming at Israeli officials at Sharon’s ranch. Such things as removing checkpoints (that America now finds necessary itself in Iraq to cut down on terror); the Jews, themselves, supplying Arab disembowelers of their kids with arms; returning to the 1949 suicidal armistice lines; making Judea Judenrein; etc. and so forth are usually high on such agendas.
The title of that January 15th article mentioned above read, “Secretary of State Says She’s Heard Abbas’ Demand.”
Where’s the leaders who will put forth Israel’s demands?
Who will unabashedly state to Abbas that Israel will not negotiate with any enemy until it openly acknowledges to the world and to its own people in their own language that it accepts Israel’s right to exist?
Who will look the Arabs in their eyes and state that if they can have some two dozen states created by the conquest and forced Arabization of mostly other non-Arab peoples’ lands, then Jews can have a resurrected state in the land where their ancestors have had a continuous existence for over three millennia?
Can Condi’s boss say that about his ranch in Texas? Ask the Mexicans…
Where’s the Israeli leader who will tell its best friend, America, that if it can have national security interests which necessitate that it acquire territories, topple governments, and meddle thousands of miles away from home, then it needs to understand that a miniscule Israel needs something more to increase its own security than empty promises and unfulfilled obligations from Arabs still sworn to its destruction?
America would not yield to such an enemy under such circumstances, and it is three thousand miles wide, has mostly friendly neighbors (despite conquering massive territories from at least one), has two oceans helping to act as a buffer, has three hundred million people, and is the most powerful nation on Earth.
Until Israel gets itself leaders willing to take a cut in American aid and such if the price is a Munich-style “peace” with Jews as the sacrificial offering, it should not agree to attend any proposed new Road Map summit that is now being planned.
It will only wind up being throw the Jew down the well time again.
