No Middle East Peace Until….

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 29, 2020

         TWENTY YEARS AGO THIS SUMMER, PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON MET AT CAMP DAVID WITH ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER EHUD BARAK AND PLO LEADER YASSER ARAFAT. ARAFAT WAS OFFERED A DEAL THAT GAVE HIM ABOUT 95 PERCENT OF WHAT HE ASKED FOR IN EXCHANGE FOR MAKING PEACE WITH ISRAEL. HE REJECTED IT BECAUSE AS ANYONE PAYING ATTENTION KNOWS, THE GOAL OF THE PALESTINIAN LEADERSHIP THEN AND NOW IS TO ERADICATE THE JEWISH STATE AND AS MANY JEWS AS POSSIBLE.

         ON THE 75TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE LIBERATION OF AUSCHWITZ, THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION HAS COME UP WITH ITS OWN PEACE PLAN, WHICH PALESTINIAN LEADER MAHMOUD ABBAS REJECTED BEFORE IT WAS MADE PUBLIC. ABBAS CALLED PRESIDENT TRUMP A “DOG” AND SOMETHING ELSE THAT CANNOT BE REPEATED ON THIS RADIO STATION. YOU CAN’T MAKE PEACE WITH AN ENTITY THAT BELIEVES IT HAS A MANDATE FROM ALLAH TO KILL YOU AND OCCUPY YOUR LAND.

         THIS IS AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN THE WEST’S BIG MISTAKE. WESTERN LEADERS HAVE ERRONEOUSLY BELIEVED THAT WHAT ISRAEL AND THE U.S. DO AFFECTS WHAT THE PALESTINIAN AND ARAB LEADERSHIP DOES. THE FORMULA IS WRONG AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN.

         THERE WILL BE NO PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST UNTIL THE ULTIMATE PEACEMAKER RETURNS AND ESTABLISHES HIS KINGDOM. I’M CAL THOMAS.
