Palestinians and their Arab brethren must stop hating Jews, Re: Palestinian Arabs to Obama: “We Don’t Want Anything Peaceful, Only Bullets and Missiles”, FrontPage Magazine, March 21, 2013

During his just completed two-day state visit to Israel President Obama spoke extensively with Israeli and Palestinian leaders about peace and expressed the view that peace between Israelis and Palestinians is possible.

He failed to mention the biggest, most basic, most fundamental impediment there is to peace between Israelis and Palestinians to anyone however.

That impediment is Arab hatred of Jews.

Palestinians and their Arab brethren have to stop hating Jews because that hatred is the root cause of the conflict between Israel and her neighbors and because the conflict will never end until the hatred is eliminated.

There cannot be peace until Palestinians and their Arab brethren recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state and stop trying to wipe her off the map, stop trying to destroy her and allow Israelis to live in safety and security free from constant threats, attacks and war. None of that can happen as long as the Jew hatred exists, which is why it must be eliminated before there can be peace. Palestinians and their Arab brethren have to change their behavior towards Israel before there can be peace and in order to do that they have to get rid of the Jew hatred first.

That is the message Obama should have given the Palestinians and their Arab brethren, in no uncertain terms. If they really want peace they have to stop hating Jews and change their behavior towards them, towards Israel. There is no possibility of peace unless that happens and that is the message Obama should have imparted.

By failing to do so Obama failed to advance the cause of peace, which means that his trip was a failure, at least as far as peace is concerned, cosmetics, glad-handing, photo-ops and rhetoric notwithstanding.

Too bad he didn’t impart that message.

Too bad he doesn’t recognize and understand that hatred of Jews by Palestinians and their Arab brethren is the biggest, most basic, most fundamental impediment there is to peace between Israelis and Palestinians

Too bad he isn’t knowledgeable enough to know that the Jew hatred is blind, visceral, rooted in Islam, goes back 1,400 years to Islam’s birth and has nothing to do with Israel or anything she does or doesn’t do as such.

Too bad he doesn’t recognize and understand that Palestinians and their Arab brethren hate America and Americans almost as much as they hate Israel and Israelis.

Too bad he doesn’t recognize and understand that Israel is the proverbial canary in the coal mine and that as Israel goes the United States goes too.

Too bad, too bad.
