Why Moslems Cannot Recognize Israel as a Jewish State

Reader comment on: American Foreign Policy in the Middle East

Submitted by U Harold Males (United States), Dec 16, 2007 20:15

There are two ways to define an item--by dictionary and by recognizing it--in and of itself--for what it is. Since the Koran already defines Jews as a dhimmi (or subject people) Moslems cannot recognize Israel as a Jewish state without contradicting the Koran, which--by definition--is perfect and cannot contain a self-contradiction. Therefore, the very existence of a proud, unafraid Jewish state is, on the face of it, profoundly unsettling. It calls into question their founding document.

What should Jews do about this state of affairs? They should learn to live with it--not as a problem but as a condition. A problem bespeaks a solution. There is no solution, short of Israel's disappearance. Therefore Jews must recognize the realities of their dilemma. They must minimize the damage inflicted by their enemies (as in a chronic medical condition) and inflict such immediate and disproportianate harm when attacked that their enemies will leave them alone for a while. Eventually they will be attacked again and they will have to retaliate again. As we say in marketing--it goes with the territory. Perhaps, at some time in the distant future, their enemies might learn forbearance. In the meantime--COURAGE!
