CarolineGlickBy Larry Gordon –

Caroline Glick, the Jerusalem Post columnist is a clear thinker and refreshing breath of air in a polluted as well as convoluted diplomatic push to force concessions on Israel in what the world calls the cause of peace. Ms. Glick, in New York this week to promote her new book, “The Israeli Solution”, told students at Ramaz High School on Monday, that the two state scenario is simply unworkable for the simple reason that it is based on lies and falsehoods.
The narrative of two states for two peoples—one Jewish and the other Palestinian is something that much of the world—including many Israeli’s—have bought into so as to finally deal with and hopefully dispose of the problem. The lack of a so-called homeland for the Palestinian people was thought and still is thought by many to be the central issue that troubles the Moslem world. The old thinking has mostly been disproved after more than twenty years of an Israeli offer on the table to establish a Palestinian state, the rejection of the offer by Palestinian leadership and the continued violence that is directed at Israel by Palestinian officials with support of regimes in Iran, Lebanon in the form of Hezzbolah and the Gaza Strip.
In her book Caroline Glick grabs the truth and reality of the situation as it stands today regardless of its consistent denial in the White House, in Europe and even the Knesset. “The idea of two states is just unworkable,” Glick told her audience. She added that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s adamant insistence that the Palestinian’s recognize Israel as the Jewish state is a deal breaker on which there is no route of negotiations or diplomatic nuance that will allow that demand to be circumvented.
“This is not about fairness or justice for the Palestinian people,” she said, “It is about one thing and one thing only—the rejection of Israel.” Ms. Glick’s proposal eloquently and sensibly outlined in her book is for Israel to finally apply Israeli law to Judea and Samaria just as they did to East Jerusalem in 1967 and then to the Golan Heights when Menachem Begin was Prime Minister.
She explains that the precedent for a minority population living in a free and true democratic society is extensive. In fact she points out that polls have indicated that Arabs currently living in Israel have said that they prefer Israel rule to Arab rule and would move out of their homes in areas proposed to be take over in any deal with the Palestinian Authority.
As far as the much talked about demographic issues where eventually the Arab population becomes a majority in Israel, Caroline Glick says straight away that those assumptions are based on lies and distortions. She says that firstly, the Palestinian population numbers have been exaggerated by more than 1 million but accepted as being factual. And while conventional wisdom says that the Arab birthrate in the territories is high and Jewish birthrate is low, the opposite is actually the truth. More in this week’s 5TJT.

    INTRODUCTION:

    The most amazing fact about the Arab-Israel-conflict is that the Muslims have succeeded in concealing the true reasons why they hate Israel and want to destroy it.

    These reasons come from a subject that most Americans know very little about:
    The laws of Islam.

    REASON 1:

    Soon before he died, Mohammed [the founder and greatest prophet of Islam] expressed his desire that the entire Arabian Peninsula be free of non-Muslims.

    As a result of this statement, it is ILLEGAL for any Jew to live anywhere in Saudi Arabia, even temporarily. This seems extreme to American ears, but for Muslims, every word spoken by Mohammed is absolute law. Apparently, Israel is close enough to the Arabian Peninsula to be considered a violation of Mohammed’s request.

    Even if Israel would shrink itself to the size of a football field, Muslims would still consider its existence to be a violation of Mohammed’s request, and they would still feel obligated to destroy…

    REASON 2:

    Islam teaches that non-Muslims should cower in fear before Muslims, and be subservient to Muslims [Dhimmi] and pay special taxes [Jizya] to Muslims. This tax was often difficult for the Jews to pay.

    Under Islamic rule, Jews were not allowed to build new synagogues nor repair old ones, nor ride horses, nor carry weapons. With no horses and no weapons, Jews were unable to flee or defend themselves.

    In lands ruled by Islam, any synagogue could be demolished at any time, if even one Muslim claimed that the synagogue was originally a Mosque; no evidence was needed to support this claim, and the testimony of Jews to contrary did not help.

    Jews in Islamic lands needed to pay heavy bribes to make simple repairs to their synagogues or save them from being converted to Mosques.

    Even if Israel would shrink to the size of a football field, Muslims would still consider its existence to be a violation of this law, and they would still feel obligated to destroy…

    REASON 3:

    According to the laws of the Islamic religion, non-Muslims [for example, Jews] are NEVER allowed to rule over Muslims, regardless of how just and benevolent their government is.

    The government of Israel tries to appease its Muslim citizens in many ways:
    payments to Mosques, signs in Arabic, laws translated into Arabic, exemption from army service, giving them control of the Temple Mount, and partial self rule in many areas. Arabs become members of Knesset, and they also enjoy greater freedom of speech and greater freedom of religion than if they lived in Arab lands.

    But according to the laws of Islam, these attempted appeasements are useless, because Jews are NEVER allowed to rule over Muslims, regardless of how just and benevolent their government is.

    Even if Israel would shrink to the size of a football field, Muslims would still consider its existence to be a violation of this Islamic law, and they would still feel obligated to destroy it.

    REASON 4:

    According to the laws of Islam, every piece of land that was once ruled by Muslims must always remain under Muslim rule forever; and if non-Muslims gain control over a piece of land that was once ruled by Muslims, then Muslims must fight until they bring it back under Muslim rule.

    Since the entire land of Israel was once ruled by the Muslims of the Ottoman [Turkish] Empire, every inch of the State of Israel violates Islamic Law, even those places within pre-1967 borders.

    Since all of Israel was once ruled by Muslims, the entire State of Israel violates Islamic Law, regardless of its size or the shape of its borders. The PLO was founded in 1964, with the goal of “liberating all of Palestine.” Since the PLO was founded before 1967, we may logically deduce that even pre-1967 borders are unacceptable to Muslims.

    Even if Israel would shrink to the size of a football field, it existence would still violate Islamic law, and Muslims fight to destroy it.

    REASON 5:

    Islam claims that Muslims are the best and greatest people in the world. When Muslims see Jews building beautiful cities and successful farms in places that used to be nothing but useless desert sand dunes, they realize that Jews have succeeded and excelled where Muslims failed miserably.

    In the 700 years before the modern State of Israel, not only did Arabs [or Muslims] fail to build even one new city in the Holy Land, they also never even made significant improvements to existing cities.

    The Arabs feel humiliated by the overwhelmingly superior accomplishments of the Israelis; and this makes the Arabs doubt the Islamic teaching that Muslims are the best and greatest people in the world.

    Jews might unintentionally aggravate the situation by frequently talking about the amazing numbers of Jewish Nobel Prize winners, another area where Jews have succeeded and excelled while Muslims failed miserably.

    CONCLUSION:

    Notice that the real reasons why Muslims want to destroy Israel are not in any way related to the Palestinians, who are merely being used as pawns to distract gullible Europeans and ignorant Americans from the real reasons why Muslims want to destroy Israel.

    Note the obvious hypocrisy of ruthless brutal Arab dictators who do not care about the civil rights of their own citizens, pretending to be concerned about the civil rights of the Palestinians.

    Muslims know that if they would publicly admit the real reasons why they hate Israel, then they would soon lose the support of Europeans and Americans and the news media in their efforts to destroy Israel. So Muslims do not talk about the real reasons why they hate Israel, and very few non-Muslims know enough about Islam to uncover them.

    In 1947 CE, British Palestine was divided into two parts:

    The eastern part of British Palestine [78%] became the Arab nation of Jordan, which is 98% Palestinian.

    The western part of British Palestine [22%] became the Jewish nation of Israel.

    The Palestinians already have a country; it is called JORDAN.

    Jordan ** IS ** Palestine:
