I see that Netanyahu wants direct talks with Abbas and is going to Washington to talk to Obama once again. Abbas now wants to talk about the borders and security. That's a new pitch. What I understand that Fatah wants is all of Jerusalem, so I suppose that his idea of a border will encompass our capital and all of Judea and Samaria. Information is that they want their side to be free of all Jews. This is going to be some very interesting but short talk. The last thing I want to see is Israel losing Jerusalem or any of the Israeli towns in Judea and Samaria. We have over one million Arab citizens in Israel. I think Abbas can live with our Jewish population if he tries hard enough.
Fatah wants everything right now. They're been fighting against Israel for 62 years but now they have decided they want a state and want it right now and they want what they want or else. So far they haven't comprimised on anything so what is in the works now?
Besides that, what are they going to do about Hamas? Hamas wants Israel gone, period. Are they suddenly going to take leadership from Abbas? Are we just to deal with Fatah?
To show faith in what kind of neighbors Hamas and Fatah will be, this is the type of hype they are now spreading. "Mufti of Palestinian Authority, Muhammad Hussein: "The Al-Aqsa Mosque is threatened by the plans of the enemies of Allah (the Jews), who have violated all faith and religious laws and even deviated from their humanity." The Muslims have created libels of all sorts about this Mosque with the latest picture of a Jewish man eating the mosque. The site that includes the mosque (along with the Dome of the Rock) is also referred to as al-Haram ash-Sharif or "Sacred Noble Sanctuary", a site also known as the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism, the place where the First and Second Temples are generally accepted to have stood. Widely considered as the third holiest site in Islam, Muslims believe that Muhammad was transported from the Sacred Mosque in Mecca to al-Aqsa during the Night Journey on a white horse.
Before any agreements should be made by Israel, they should get the Palestinians to agree to stop feeding their people lies about Jews and about Israel's history. I spoke with a friend who found out that the Arabs have no idea of the history of the Jews with Jerusalem. They are almost in shock when they find out. No peace will come about when one side is spoon-fed such continuing lies.
I also have a plan. I think that we should make a trade with Iraq. In Iraq are the Kurds who really deserve to have their own state. They also are the closest to Jews through dna of any other peoples. "Shortly before war ended in 1988, the Iraqi Kurdish village of Halabja was exposed to multiple chemical agents, killing about 5,000 of the town's 50,000 residents . After the incident, traces of mustard gas and the nerve agents sarin, tabun and VX were discovered." They still live in want and are treated as less than 3rd class citizens. The Kurds could be Israel's neighbors and let the Hamas and Fatah people go live where they have been in Iraq. Then they can be altogether again. Let Iraq deal with them. There have been large shifts of populations before. I think this would be a very intelligent one.
