Never, throughout history, was there ever a sovereign Palestine, never-the-less a sovereign “Arab Palestine;” why tempt fate, and challenge history, now.
Palestinian Arabs make up the majority of Jordan’s population, the rest, the West Bank inhabitants, should be included in the new Jordan, when the present artificial and illegal “monarchy” is ultimately dissolved in favor of a democratic government, a government that has friendly relations with its neighbor to the west, the democratic Jewish state, Israel. The “Kingdom of Jordan,” was never a legal entity, it was the ill-conceived creation of the British government when it had a League of Nations mandate to control that territory; it is high time for “the monarchy,” to be dissolved.
As to those Arabs living in Gaza, they should be annexed to Egypt, the new democratic Egypt, as it is the natural state of things. Arabs in Lebanon should be simply removed out of refugee camps and integrated into the [Muslim] population.
There is neither a need, justification, or historic reason for a sovereign [Arab] Palestine; why tempt fate and create another problem without a reasonable solution?
An Arab Palestine will not have enough natural resources, or land for agriculture, to properly take care of the economic and survival needs of its people, why add such an additional burden to a region with many other issues on it hand?
Since Palestinians have no united, or consistent voice, how, or why, should the Israeli waste time communicating with what in reality is an intangible, or virtual representation of the Palestinians?
Those who now speak for the Palestinians refuse to recognize Israel as the Jewish democracy that it is, and in most cases have charters calling or the destruction of the Jewish state. Israel should discontinue negotiation until those it must negotiate with formally recognize its viability, sovereignty, and right to exist as a Jewish democratic state, a state settled where it now is, but with defensible boundaries, and, of course, with a United Jerusalem as its Capital.
Without getting formal recognition, and dealing with people whose mission is to destroy it, it would simply be fool-hearty for Israel to negotiate with the Palestinians. Israel must also insist that those allied with the Palestinians (such as Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, Hamas, etc.,) formally accept its rights as a sovereign state, and remove any calls for its destruction.
Why should Israel re-enter peace talks with those who are on record as wishing to destroy it? Why should it not insist on having those sitting on the other side of the table accept its viability as a Jewish nation, just as they are accepting them as members of Islamic nations?
The GOP, and conservatives major voice, Rush Limbaugh, formally thanked G-d for ´giving us Obama!´Limbaugh´s praised President Obama for his tactics, the most important skill a Commander-in-Chief, must have.
A Commander-in-Chief, also as President of the United States, must posses the ability to make quick tactical decision based on sparse information. Obama, according to Limbaugh, did demonstrate that skill during the Bin Laden operation, a skill neither of the three previous Presidents ever revealed.
Limbuagh´s endorsment of Obama as the superior tactician of his predecessors, and of today´s presidential candidates, will surely help propel Barak Hussein Obama into a second term, unless the young President commits significant mistakes between now and that time.
