Annapolis: Nothing but Another False Hope
A day before the “historic” summit, four terrorist were sent to hell. I bet the other side will argue that they were innocent. I have no idea how a person who is planting explosives on a fence patrolled by IDF soldiers could be innocent when they are conspiring to hurt another person. However, that is another argument. On the other hand, another group of terrorist trying to launch rockets were killed. Click here for the story. Keep in mind this is only a day before the historic Annapolis summit. The problem here is: PALESTINIANS SIMPLY ARE NOT READY FOR PEACE!
We could try to fool ourselves and bring forth another fake peace process, but given activities of Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and many other groups in this region, peace is impossible. This is a pathetic attempt by Israeli and U.S. Governments to get Arab nations behind them to isolate Iran in the region. How are the two related? Very Simple.
Arab-Israeli conflict and the faith of Palestinians has always been on top of Muslims' agendas. Any group who try to win support for any type of activity always insert in Palestinian cause on the bottom of their doctrines and Muslims and Arabs like bunch of sheep follow them. Iran is a country that has invested great amount of resources into being a champion of Palestinian cause. They have created and in many cases support various extremists groups in Palestinian areas to interfere with the peace process and create anarchy. They have been extremely successful in that tactic.
Prior to military show down with Iran, Israel and U.S are trying to prevent any major problem in the region. Before Israel and U.S could go after another crazy Muslim nation in the region, they have to make sure not to agitate Muslim societies. Agitating those societies is basically creating sympathy for Iran. Iran has and will definitely use the Palestinian cause as an excuse to buy support and create unrest in many Arab countries that might result in extremist revolutions. Currently Iran is pretty much isolated. Their only ally in the region is Syria and the only country that support them is Crazy Chavez government of Venezuela. However, this sort of isolation is only political. Who knows what would happen when U.S strikes another Muslim countries. Iran will definitely use Arab Israeli conflict as a way of acquiring sympathy from other Muslims around the world and they would cry that they are being attacked only because of their support for Palestinians and their “freedom fighters.” In order to discredit such argument, U.S and Israel are jump starting another wave of peace process in order to argue that Iran's argument regarding fighting for Palestinian rights is simply bogus. Saddam also used the same argument and it did not work. However, many Arabs around the world believe that U.S attack Iraq only because Israel told them to do so.
This summit will have absolutely no benefit for anybody except the U.S. If any Israeli thinks that this summit will bring security, they are gravely mistaken. The purpose of this group is simply to buy support for attacking Iran and since Arab historically look down on Persians, U.S and Israel is making sure that no body would shed any tear for destroying Iran. Unfortunately, it will cost Israel land and give false promise of hope and peace to people who truly believe in peace. It will also embolden a lot of extremist groups to kill more Jews and Israel will have to make more painful concessions for absolutely nothing. In conclusion: this summit is nothing but a PR stunt for Arab and Muslim society and it will only benefit U.S interests to keep U.S allies in the region in power. Israel will lose more land with no real peace, Iran will be destroyed, and U.S will have more allies in the region.
Here is more proof why Palestinians are not ready for peace. Just like how Rabin and Clinton lied to Israeli public about Palestinian intentions, Olmert is doing the same thing. It is 90s all over again where we armed the Palestinians and they just mobilized themselves to kill the Jews in a more productive fashion.
