On June 13, 2016, Congressman Keith Ellison published an essay in the Huffington Post (“The quiet triumph of diplomacy”). He advocates a two-state solution for the Arab-Israel conflict. He says he dreams of visiting a Holy Land where Israelis fear nothing, and Palestinians are building an inclusive democratic society (ibid).

He’s like many westerners. He’s like too many wrong-headed Jews.

He pursues a dream that can never be born. That dream says ‘Palestinians’ want to create an inclusive democratic society if only Israel would allow them to do it.

He’s wrong. ‘Palestinians’ have no interest in building a society that’s either inclusive or democratic.

Certainly, there’s nothing wrong-headed about the West wanting peace. Peace is the universal messianic goal for mankind.

The problem in the Arab Middle East is, the ‘Palestinians’ don’t want what the West wants. They don’t want peace. They want conquest. Just look at the Palestinians’ map of their new ‘Palestine’. That map doesn’t show ‘Palestine’ side-by-side with Israel. It shows ‘Palestine’ replacing Israel.

That’s not ‘peace’. It’s ‘conquest’.

That’s the mistake the West makes. It yearns for something ‘Palestinians’ don’t want: peace with Jews.

How’s that going to work out?

Actually, we know how that works out. It doesn’t. There’s no peace in the Arab-Israel conflict because the ‘Palestinian’ dream requires the destruction of the Jewish state.

The West doesn’t understand this. It can’t understand that the so-called ‘Palestinians’ have never, ever demonstrated any interest whatsoever in living side-by-side with Israel. They want to erase Israel, not share space with Israel.

The West refuses to open its eyes. It blames Israel for the lack of peace. It won’t look at the websites, Palestinian Media Watch or MEMRI, where they’d see an almost daily drumbeat of Jew-hate in ‘Palestinian’ media.

When the West pursues its ‘peace’, it does nothing to address ‘Palestinian’ anti-peace, anti-Jew attitudes. The West ignores ‘Palestinian’ Jew-hate.

How’s that going to work out?

We know how it works out. It doesn’t.

The West doesn’t get it. It is pure nonsense to believe that a Western-style peace can be built upon a ‘Palestinian’ culture that hates Israel and Israel’s Jewish population. The ‘Palestinians’ don’t want a Western-style peace. The only peace they’ll accept is one based on a Middle East without Jews.

That’s it. Nothing else will work.

It’s not as if this is a secret. It isn’t. The PLO Charter (Article 22) states it. The Hamas Charter states it. It’s stated and restated every week in some form in ’Palestinian’ media: they want an Arab world without Jews, not peace with Jews.  

Think of it this way: ‘Palestinians’ don’t want a two-state solution. They want a one-Arab-state solution.

Question: since the Oslo accords some 24 years ago, what has provoked more Jew-killings in Israel than anything else? Answer: talk of peace between Jew and ‘Palestinian’. Why? Because nothing angers ‘Palestinian’ leadership more than thinking about living next door to a Jew.

Every Western effort to force Israel to sign a peace agreement with ‘Palestinians’ has failed. Each such effort, however, has resulted in Jews being attacked and murdered by ‘Palestinians’. In fact, the best way to get Jews murdered in Israel is to start talking about peace.

Let’s review. The Palestinian Authority (PA) doesn’t want peace. Read the PLO Charter. Read the Hamas Charter. Every week, watch videos on Palestinian Media Watch. You’ll see what the ‘Palestinians’ want.

‘Palestinians’ want to commit a genocide against the Jews. They call to murder Jews, not to make peace with Jews.

That’s not peace. It’s another holocaust.

Neither Hamas nor the PLO (Fatah) wants ‘peace with Israel’. They want peace with an Israel destroyed. In fact, that’s the definition of Middle East peace you’ll find in the PLO Charter, Article 22.

The West has to answer three questions: (1) did you ever look at the conquest-inspired PA map of ‘Palestine’? (2) do you know the difference between ‘peace’ and ‘conquest’?  (3) if ‘Palestinians’ want to erase Israel, how exactly can ‘Palestinians’ live in peace with an Israel right next door?

If the West doesn’t understand the significance of the anti-Israel map of ‘Palestine’ as printed and distributed by the PLO (Fatah), then it’s either incompetent or an anti-Israel advocate. Either way, someone that ignorant or prejudiced has no business telling Israel to surrender anything.

Western advocates for ‘peace’ aren’t asking Israel to surrender land for peace. They’re asking Israel to surrender to an Arab conquest so that the new Palestine can replace Israel.

Here’s a message for those who would push Israel for ‘peace’: if you do not address ‘Palestinian’ Jew-hate, there will never be peace. Israel will never surrender to those who incite to destroy it.
