If it weren't for the Jews?

Found this on Israpundit:

Falsehood: There is no Palestinian state today because of Israeli aggression and obstinacy.

Truth: There is no Palestinian state today because of Arab aggression and obstinacy. In late 1947, the United Nations approved by a two thirds majority a proposal to create in to create in Western "Palestine" two states to replace the British Mandatory regime there. One would be Jewish and the other a Palestinian Arab state. The Jews agreed. The Arabs rejected the idea. The Arab states launched an attack of genocidal aggression against the Jews, invaded "Palestine" and gobbled up the lands earmarked for the Arab Palestinian state. Most of those lands were then held illegally by Jordan and semi-legally by Egypt until 1967 when they were liberated by Israel in the Six Day War. The Arab world has maintained a state of war with Israel since 1948, refusing to recognize its legitimacy, and attacking Israel over and over in a series of wars and terrorism campaigns. The Arab states attacked Israel in 1948, 1956, 1967, 1973, 1982, 2006, and sponsored terrorist atrocities against Jews in Israel since it was created. The reason for the attack which produced the first Arab-Israeli war in 1948 is exactly the same thing that stands in the way of any real peace settlement today.

The 14 Lies Blocking Peace in the Middle East

It is instructive, at this point, to remember the infamous THREE NOS of KHARTOUM.
Which have been reaffirmed by the Fatah members meeting in Bethlehem. Fatah's position, as clarified at that conference, is that until Jerusalem, ALL of Jerusalem, is free of a Jewish presence, there can be NO negotiation. And naturally they agreed that violence is the answer (if, Allah forbid, they don't get their way). 'If I forget thee....' Very well then. What's to negotiate?

Citing another blog or post should not be construed as an endorsement. Within the pro-Israel community there is a broad range of opinion. That said, useful ideas surface in a number of places and on many other blogs - Ideas and opinions, which need to be heard.

Front Page Mag? Hmmm, kinda like finding useful material in Der Sturmer.

I do not deny that it is there. But one should be careful about citing such a source.

If Beit Hillel, only Hillel. If Beit Shammai, only Shammai.

This should not be construed as an attempt to censor, by the way.

There is more freedom of speech here than in Aftonbladet.

Among the most revealing of factiods about modern warfare is that the only times that there has been military use of chemical gas warfare since WWI, it has been Moslem on Moslem use of chemical gas warfare. First it was Nasser's Egypt poison gassing Yemen in 1963, and then, of course, Sadam Hussein and "Chemical" Ali of Iraq using chemical gas war fare on the Kurdish people. What should we make of this in our "post-atomic" era of brushfire wars?
