I’ll be the first to admit my knowledge of Middle East history going back to the end of World War I is pretty thin, but I found this video – narrated by Bill Whittle – pretty interesting.
Ben Shapiro over at Big Government notes:
This week, Sol Stern of Encounter Books released a broadside titled “A Century of Palestinian Rejectionism and Jew Hatred.” In it, Sol details the history of Arab rejection of a Palestinian state.
Phineas at Sister Toldjah notes:
[T]he Arabs of Palestine have been offered their own state several times over the past century and, each time, they’ve slapped away the proffered hand of peace and responded with violence. Wallowing in the Jew-hatred that’s hard-wired into Islam, their leaders sought out allies from, among all people, the Nazis. Even after the Nazi defeat and repeated failures to destroy Israel since world War II, the Palestinians have rejected generous offers, one after the other.
No additional commentary from me, but I want to open up comments to all of you to get your opinion. Can you count how many times Arabs have rejected a plan for a Palestinian state since 1917? I’ll admit, I thought it was once … at Camp David in 2000 facilitated by President Bill Clinton.
