A Palestinian State?
Should the Palestinians get their own state? Let me rephrase that. Would a normal person stand by while a match is being held to a bomb? Then the Palestinians should not have their own state.
Are they going to get one? Probably. Will they change their ways because the magic wand of statehood has been waved over their heads? When the King of Spain becomes the Queen of Spain, perhaps.
I once read that even though it appears otherwise in public, that the rest of the Arab world doesn’t want them nearby and doesn’t respect them much, though they do respect the Israelis for being tough, resourceful and resilient. Being a Jew means you have to be those things. Otherwise you don’t survive.
It would be interesting to see what they do once they get their “state” and how they would change. If the current regimes and mentalities remain in place, then it wouldn’t be much. Also, Israel offered to divvy everything up fair and square, but they didn’t want that. They didn’t want their own state, they wanted the whole enchilada. They wanted Israel, too.
But they are never going to get that because we will fight with our dying breath. Otherwise we wouldn’t survive.
