Palestine Is A Region

UST IN CASE the point has been missed, allow me to clarify that the ongoing opinion of The Bellicose Augur syncs with one I found floating about the ether this morning, and it goes like this: Israel belongs to Israel. The real “myth” here is Palestine. Palestine is a region, not a nation… and it never was. In fact, Israel shows more respect for the Palestinian people than all the other Islamic nations combined. Word of advice to my peacenik and anti-Israel friends. Don't be a doofus. And don't get snookered by the well-honed Arab propaganda machine. Grab a clue....

Standard Network Pandering

Watch CBS Videos Online S THIS ALL THE LEFT HAS REMAINING in its quiver of intellectual assaults on Israel? After sixty-two years of incessant conflict with these untenable Arabs who only flocked to this formerly barren land to harass, dominate, or exterminate the Jews as per their religion, this report offers nothing new, and yet the comments on this CBS News drip with enthusiastic aplomb for the bravery and courage of this allegedly blacked out story.

Rice Chides Arab Stinginess

Regardless of how one feels about this administration's handling of Middle Eastern affairs, or the practicality of a Palestinian state, it's good news and orange juice to go with your breakfast when the oil-crippled United States government actually criticizes the grappling oil-rich Arabs for anything. ecretary of State Condoleezza Rice yesterday chided Arab countries for not helping the Palestinians financially to establish a viable state, and she accused some states of trying to get away with giving as little aid as possible. Rice, beginning a trip focused mostly on the Middle East, also said that it is too early to...

Mobilize Arab and European forces against a threat led by Iran and its allies, Syria, Hamas, and Hizballah.3. Get Iran to stop its campaign to get nuclear weapons.4. Reestablish American credibility toward friends and deterrence toward enemies.5. Reduce the level of Israel-Palestinian conflict. That pretty much describes the U.S. framework for dealing with the Middle East nowadays. The Annapolis conference is not going to contribute to these goals.

Those Troubled Palestinians

he late Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir is infamous for uttering the bold political statement: "There is no such thing as a Palestinian people." The statement has been a source of ridicule and derision by Arab propagandists ever since. They love to talk about Meir's "racism" when skies are blue and not bloody with Arab aggression they can never admit, eager to suggest she was in historical denial. They love to say her statement is patently false—an intentional lie, a strategic deception. What they don't like to talk about, however, are the very similar statements made by Yasser Arafat and...
