The One Group That Doesn’t Want Peace in Middle East: The Palestinians

Liberals have been desperately trying to find a solution to the Palestinian/Israeli conflict for decades at this point, and their solutions – usually aimed at creating two side-by-side states – have thus far failed to materialize in the real world. This could be partially because liberals take a dim view of Israel’s right to exist, and it could be because they spend most of their time comparing Israel’s “occupation” of the West Bank as akin to Hitler’s invasion of Poland.

But it could also be because they haven’t spent enough time really digging into one important subject: What the Palestinian people themselves actually want. If they would only take a look at a new poll from the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research, they might understand all too well why were are now four decades into “peace talks” without a solution.

The Washington Free Beacon highlighted the results:

  If a new presidential election was held today between the current president, Fatah’s Mahmoud Abbas, and the leader of the terrorist group Hamas, Ismail Haniyeh, Hamas would beat Fatah 49 percent to 42 percent.

    88 per cent said that Palestinians who sell property to Jews are traitors. 64 percent said the punishment for selling property to Jews should be the death penalty.

    Palestinians oppose the concept of a two-state solution, 55 percent to 43 percent.

    “A large minority of 44 percent thinks that armed struggle is the most effective means of establishing a Palestinian state next to the state of Israel while 28 percent believe that negotiation is the most effective means and 23 percent think non-violent resistance is the most effective.”

    In lieu of negotiations, “54 percent support a return to an armed intifada,” i.e. terrorism.

    50 percent of Palestinians reject in principle the holding of negotiations in order to resolve the conflict.

In a speech in front of the United Nations last week, outgoing Ambassador Nikki Haley told the Security Council that the Trump administration was preparing to unveil a new approach to peace between Israel and the Palestinians. She advised them to be open to the plan, which cast a lot of the old negotiation strategies out the window in favor of a brand-new take on the problem.

But polls like these suggest that there may be no genius new plan that can actually give the Palestinians their own state. Because for that possibility to exist, you have to have Palestinians who crave peace more than the destruction of Israel. And it’s not clear from this poll – among other indicators – that this is currently the case. And as long as terrorists are controlling the culture, things are unlikely to change.

  1. One has to look at history. The Palestinians are the result of Arabs that would not accept the creation of Israel. Instead of becoming part of it they rebelled and when they lost fled and became refugees which became the Palestinian refugee state. Instead of assimilating in other Arab states or Israel they sit and moan and cry and are terrorists. After 50-75 years it is time for the Palestinians to accept they need to assimilate somewhere and quit being refugee/terrorists.

    • There was enough money and benefits given to the Palestinians when the Balfour agreement was signed to start a new land. There are tremendous amounts paid every year to continue the process. Instead the Palestinians have spent the money on war and payments to anyone in the middle east who will kill a jew. There will never be peace in the middle east till the Palestinians give up their vision of an Isreal without Jews.

      • There is already a two state solution.
        Jordon was created for the Arabs and if they refuse to assimilate, they should go there

    • Well we had a Palestinian Work for my family she told us when the Jews came they took their homes . She had to live in a camp and she could see where she had lived for years from the camp. her Life was stolen from her. If that happened to me I would want to see them all Gone or dead also. the old saying 2 wrongs don’t make a right. their are allot of people displaced om this planet .. I personally wish there was a country somewhere where anyone could live and there was no Government . Ya it would be dangerous but at least you,d be free.

      • Exactly
        They live in the biggest open air prison in the World the state of Isreal is a Rothschild/Royal Family of Windsor Creation, how many people do you see there pasts the age of thirty? not many…
        They kill them and sell the body parts, Isreal Hates us and we give them millioins of dollars of our hard earned Tax Money they are a problem, a really big problem…
        Quote: Millions of tax-exempt American dollars are sent to Israel yearly and we true American do not like this Mr. Rosenthal replied: “the naive politicians in Washington are gullible. Most of them are not to bright so the powerful Jewish lobbyists influenced this practice years ago and there is no one strong enough to stop it. Some of the money is even returned to the United States and spent on Zionist propaganda efforts, much of it through the B’naiB’rith and the Conference of Jewish Organizations and the World Jewish Congress. The Jewish Agency is a funding arm, a sort of body of B’nai B’rith officials. There is nothing wrong with sending American dollars to Israel tax-free so long as we are smart enough to get away with it. – Harold Wallace Rosenthal..

  2. These 2 have been in conflict for decades – I think the Palestinians would rather have it that way than to ever admit Israel deserves anything short of death. The Palestinians teach their children, “Death to Jews”, “Death to Israel”, it seems their hatred runs far too deep to ever change their minds.

    • I believe you got it right, but we also have a problem in America as well White Supremacist’s hate Jews and Blacks as well and they’ve joined the Republican Party. How do we clean up The Republican Party? The KKK used to be in the southern states Democratic Party, but they migrated over to the Republican Party.

      • I am a white licensed mental health therapist who has counseled thousands of people and assessed them in a hospital psychiatric emergency room. I have never met a white supremist; I don’t believe that they exist. Conservative Republicans are not racist. I live in a diverse, black majority community. The Republican and Democrats parties do need to be cleaned up so that the politicians begin to serve the citizens instead of themselves and the lobbyists.

    • To hell with all these Palestinians it’s not their land it’s God given to the Jews so get the hell out and shut up and stop your whining you don’t deserve anything. That land is not yours be thankful they let you live there!’

  3. We should get out of there. That endless war is none of our business. All we are doing is fueling the conflict. Save the American taxpayer dollars, and use the proceeds to fund the wall.

  4. Islam = War = Islam culture is a war, slave and hate culture for the last 1400 years. To stop war in the Middle East one must remove the cause of war, Islam. Read, Culture and Conflict by Salzman.
    Islam culture has not change or grown like Western culture has. It has internal structures that defends against change allowing Islam to remain the same as it was 1400 years ago. A war, slave, racist, hate, lie, and no cultural limits on violence civilization.

    Therefore: No, peace

  5. Terrorism is the main industry for the Palestinians and without terrorism they would have to work in a peaceful country with no blood money for their murder and mayhem!

  6. Palestinians Lost the territory to the Israelite’s in the 1948 battle and they are are still fighting that action with many different tactics. Even the Palestinians I have met in the U.S. still want reparations that they feel are due when the Israelite’s captured their land at gun point and drove them into exiles. The one.s I have talked with would settle for payment for their land. Maybe a financial settlement would be in order.

  7. Hi it’s me, I am also visiting this site regularly, this web page is in fact
    good and the users are genuinely sharing pleasant thoughts.
