The politicians that are working so hard toward a "two state solution" are completely and totally deluded if they actually believe that it will bring lasting peace to the region. The truth is that according to Islamic law, any lands that have once belonged to Muslims belong to them forever. Radical Muslims will never recognize the right of the Jews to live on even one inch of the land of Israel. It simply is not going to happen. Any "peace agreement" that gives the Palestinians control over more land is only going to be viewed as an "intermediate step" toward the eventual goal of completely eliminating the nation of Israel. Anyone who doubts this should check out the results of a recent poll by The Israel Project.
The poll asked Palestinians living in Judea, Samaria and Gaza a variety of questions about Israel and about the peace process. The following are some of the results.....
*60 percent were in favor of direct negotiations with Israel that would result in a "two state" solution.
*Approximately two-thirds of the respondents agreed that "over time, Palestinians must work to get back all the land for a Palestinian state."
*Only 23 percent of the respondents believed that "Israel has a permanent right to exist as a homeland for the Jewish people."
*58 percent of those surveyed preferred "armed struggle" over "engagement with Israel."
*Just 12 percent of the respondents said that official maps, documents and school textbooks should show the name "Israel".
Are you starting to get the message?
In Islam, it is taught that you can negotiate with an enemy, lie to an enemy and even make peace agreements with an enemy if it will put you in a better position to achieve eventual victory.
That is what the Palestinians are doing. They have no intention of living peacefully alongside Israel forever. Instead, they are just going to grab land however they can grab it.
If Israel will give them some of the land now peacefully, then so be it. Later on they will take the rest by force if necessary.
Any attempt at a "two state solution" is absolutely foolish and just puts Israel in even more danger.
Radical Islam does not compromise. Radical Islam does not forget what the eventual goal is. Radical Islam will not honor any peace treaty for long.
For years, the top Palestinian leaders have said "peace, peace" to the rest of the world and then have turned right around and have told their constituents that of course they would never give up the eternal struggle to take back "the land of Palestine" for the Palestinians.
But world politicians have been totally fooled. They keep wanting to believe that if the Palestinians are given more land and more control that they will eventually be satisfied.
But they will never, ever be satisfied. Not until the entire state of Israel has been wiped off the map.
There will never be lasting peace in the Middle East until Yeshua the Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ) returns to this earth. Unfortunately, our politicians are never going to understand that.
