Palestinians don't need an excuse

Op-ed: Attempts to kill Jews will not stop even if Israel releases all imprisoned terrorists tomorrow

Let's be honest; the Palestinians do not need any particular excuse to riot and attack Jews. The current wave of riots, which had been going on for some two or three weeks, did not begin as a result of the hunger strike launched by the four prisoners (by the way, two of them are eating again). The strike is just another excuse, as it is clear that even if the remaining strikers will begin eating again, their brothers will continue to riot in the territories.

 

The truth is that our neighbors simply do not want us. In other words, it's not that they want a country alongside Israel; they want a country instead of Israel. This is a fact, and it has been proven numerous times.

Full Story

 

Both Ehud Barak and Ehud Olmert offered the Palestinians a state almost within the 1967 borders – and they did not accept the offer. The forceful evacuation of thousands of settlers and dozens of communities from Gaza – which was orchestrated by Arik Sharon – did not get us even one inch closer to the possibility of an agreement. On the contrary, the concession only encouraged the Palestinians, who began launching rockets at Israeli cities and communities inside Israel with the goal of killing Jews.

 

The leaders of Gaza have declared a number of times recently that their goal is to kill Jews and destroy the "Zionist entity." In light of these statements, even if you release all the prisoners – the murderers and terrorists – tomorrow, the attempts to kill Jews will not stop.

 

Therefore, and this is a fact, there is no connection between any Israeli policy or decision and the Palestinians' desire, or lust rather, to attack Israel and its citizens. Those who do not understand this, or do not want to understand this despite the facts that have been proven over decades, are simply naïve or blind to what is happening on the ground. And don’t tell me that Israeli policy has driven the Palestinians to act in this manner. My uncle, Natan Klieger, was shot to death in 1939 in Haifa by Arab rioters. If I'm not mistaken, there was no occupation back then.

 

Golda Meir said an agreement with the Palestinians will be reached only when they love their children more than they hate the Jews. She was right.
