Not True. To have hope, we only need reality. To uproot anti-Jewish racism.
This nonsense has been repeated like a mantra: There has to be a solution.
‘There must be a solution to the Middle East conflict to get out of despair.’
First of all, Jewish despair is from 2000 years of persecutions and does not depend on whether a peace process works or not.
Second of all, we all know the story of the guy who’s looking for his car keys at night under a streetlight. Did you lose them there? No, but that is the only place he could see anything.
If you can’t come up with a viable peace process, you’ve not been looking in the right places.
No, the solution doesn’t lie in territorial changes that nobody wants because land is not underlying the hatred. We gave them the Gaza Strip, and they want to exterminate us. We gave the Muslim villages on the West Bank to the Palestinian Authority (ending ‘the occupation’) and got a record number of invading terrorists in return. It’s not ‘the occupation.’
Even having all Muslims voluntarily leave the West Bank, Gaza, the Golan Heights, and South Lebanon would not help. The UN will continue to ‘help’ them not to integrate into their new country (like it does in all lands surrounding Israel) and to keep up the false and hateful hope that one day, they will be ‘privileged’ to take part in the ‘liberation’ of Jerusalem through shedding of blood. How sad and misguided if that’s what you live for.
(Israelis didn’t declare they want the people of Gaza to emigrate. That, pollsters asked them. If you ask Israelis after October 7: ‘What would you want: a Palestinian State in your backyard, or that Gazans leave the Middle East,’ what do you think they’d answer? Small lies, big lies, and statistics.)
And no, the solution won’t come from giving more prosperity to Muslims because despair is not underlying the hatred.
The only solution is to cure the illness: 1400 years of anti-Jewish racism.
It’s really that simple. But it never worked. Try it some more. It’s the only thing that’s rotten; then it’s the only restoration that may help.
Handing out land and money instead is not only unworkable but also as dangerous as prescribing candy to cure cancer. As October 7 showed. As the Dutch saying goes: Soft doctors make stinking wounds.
There is a solution.
Let the 80% non-hating Germans, Austrians, and Israeli Muslims teach the Muslim World why and how to respect and thank Jews, remove murder from their toolkit, and enjoy democracy with safety and rights for all.
Without Jew-hatred, Muslims may live amongst or alongside Jews, and with hatred neither.
