Palestinians Don’t Deserve a State, Re: The Palestinian Statehood Gambit, Wall Street Journal, September 19, 2011

The Palestinian Authority will attempt to get the United Nations to declare statehood for Palestinians at its annual meeting in New York later this week. Palestinians will apply to the United Nations Security Council for full membership in the UN. If that fails the UN General Assembly will vote on whether or not to grant Palestinians status as an observer state. Projections are that they may or may not be successful with the Security Council and that they would win a vote in the General Assembly by a considerable margin.

Palestinians don’t deserve a state of their own and it would be remiss and immoral of the United Nations to do anything which might lead to statehood for them. Why don’t Palestinians deserve a state of their own and why would it be remiss and immoral of the United Nations to do anything which might lead to statehood for them? Leaving aside the multitude of other reasons why Palestinian statehood is a non-starter the answer in the end can be summed up in one word…genocide.

A Palestinian state would make the destruction of Israel and the expulsion of Jews from the Middle East its first order of business. That’s genocide. That would be its raison d’etre and it wouldn’t rest until both were achieved. Genocide would be its aim from day one and there can be no doubt about that fact at all. If the United Nations sanctioned the creation of a Palestinian state it would be sanctioning genocide and everything that goes along with it…bloodshed, terror, hate, rape, murder, carnage, war and everything else. Nothing could be more remiss or immoral than that.

Palestinians are maniacs and butchers who want to commit genocide against Jews and Israelis and wipe Israel off the map. The United Nations should reject their entreaties in the name of humanity, decency and morality. If it doesn’t its no better than they are…if it doesn’t its principles and charter aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on… if it doesn’t it would be sanctioning genocide and everything that goes along with it, pure and simple.

Is genocide acceptable? Do people who wish to commit genocide deserve a state to pursue their ends? We’ll find out what the United Nations thinks shortly.
