A Palestinian State Is A Horrible Idea ... J. D. Longstreet
(This commentary was published earlier -- Friday, March 06, 2009) ********************* A PalestinianState Is A Horrible
By: J. D. Longstreet
If you have been
paying attention, at all, you know the US
and Israel are
on a collision course.Wait a
minute!Let me make that a bit
clearer.The Obama Administration is on
a collision course with Israel,
and by Israel I
mean the coming Netanyahu Administration there.
The Obama Administration/Regime is supporting a state for Palestine.Netanyahu does not. (My money is on
Netanyahu.As a matter of fact, I wish
he were qualified to be President of the US
and would agree to run in 2012. But, alas, it isn’t going to happen!)
Mrs. Bill Clinton, the US Secretary of State, is going to be pushing
Bibi, as hard as she can, toward a two-state deal.Bebe is not going to move.Threats will be made… SOME will be carried
out.Money will be cut off.SOME money will be cut off.Our Christian/Islamic (?) President is
already pouring billions into to Gaza
for Hamas and he will get all persnickety about it.Bebe will not kow tow and kiss his feet. That
will rankle Obama.
Look, the creation of a Palestinian state will do nothing to
bring stability to the region.In fact,
there will be more war, more instability, and more suffering.
A Palestinian state would effectively open up a front that
starts ten miles from Tel Aviv and reaches 1,000 miles deep across the Arabian
Peninsula to Teheran. That, alone, will be cause for Israel
to go on their highest military alert and stay there 24 hours a day, seven days
a week. In other words… all the time.The buffer zone Israel
counts on to give her time to activate her reserves and get them mobilized will
no longer exist.That short period of
time, so vital for the defense of Israel,
will be gone.Therefore, Israel
will have no choice but to adopt what, for all practical purposes, will be a
“state of war” as a normal, everyday, lifestyle.
There is a school of thought, in Israel,
which says Israel
would not be the first target of a Palestinian
State military.That distinction, according to this
theory,must go to the country of Jordan
whose population is 80% Palestinian.This line of thinking has it that the Palestinians will want to complete
the coup against the Hashemite Kingdom
they began back in 1970. The Palestinian
State will certainly want to clear
the region of its one remaining moderate, western-oriented Arab state.Once that job is completed and their military
enlarged by the “Jordanian/Palestinians,” THEN they can turn their attention to
How dimwitted is it for the US
to put any trust in the government of a state whose children’s textbooks teach
“holy war” against Israel?
Mrs. Clinton has been assuring the Middle Eastern states
that the Obama Regime is determined to continue the Bush policy of two-states
as a solution to the brawl between Israel
and the Arab terrorists who insist on calling themselves Palestinians.Again, it is a dumb idea for the US.No matter the president… it is D U M B!
Lets see:Right now
we have Syria, Iraq,
and Iran giving
us pain in the posterior and the Obama Regime is dead set on adding a fourth
with a state of Palestine?Again, I ask, how dimwitted is this?But, I forget!We have the “creame de la creame” in DC, the
“best and the brightest” of the academicians, many of whom seem to be educated
beyond their collective abilities, concocting these schemes from left-wing
dreams of “group-hugs” among nations.
So, we must ask ourselves just how prepared are the Arabs
(aka Palestinians) for statehood, anyway?Has there been any preparation for oh, say, industrialization?How about their work on developing export
markets?Have they given any thought to
negotiating trade arrangements with their next-door neighbor, Israel?
I think we all know the answer to all the above is… NO.So, it is safe, then, to assume that a state
of Palestine would be wracked with
poverty which will require billions of dollars in foreign aid from which the
chieftains will bleed off their shares and get rich while piling up hordes of
cash in numbered bank accounts far from the Middle East.
No, a Palestinian state will only ensure the continuation of
war, terrorism, and bloodshed.The one thing
we can be sure it will NOT bring to
the Middle East is… peace.
