The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

Let's face it, the usual suspects have no interest in easing, much resolving, the Palestinian problem. They are a convenient and powerful blunt object with which to beat Israel and its primary ally...America. That the number of UN resolutions condemning Israel dwarfs those attacking every other country on earth is a bit of a tip-off that there is something else going on.

And that something else is a new wave of anti-Semitism, couched in the Left's odd doctrines of support for "freedom fighters" and revolutionaries, just as long as they fight the traditional West.

And these poor schmucks on the West Bank and Gaza and in "refugee camps" in Lebanon are the tools used to attack Israel, Jews and Western political philosophy. And in return? They get nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Encouraging Palestinians to swim uphill

What happens when the loser of a war demands reparations and territory from the victor? If the question seems ridiculous (and it should), it nevertheless accurately describes the decades-long conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. What’s most remarkable though is that Israel continues to underwrite Palestinian society with territory, money and autonomy—all of which the Palestinians freely admit they will use to fight Israel.

The latest wrinkle in this bizarre situation finds the losing party refusing $50 billion in economic aid because the cash deal does not force the winning party to give up everything it has won since 1948. That’s right, the Palestinians have refused to even negotiate the Trump administration’s so-called “deal of the century” because they know that it will not grant them a “right to return” and claim land in Israel.

If these deluded fools had accepted the status quo...the existence of the state of Israel...and had simply gone on living their lives, Gaza would be livable, the West Bank would be wealthy (at least in Middle-Eastern Arab terms), and their children would be doctors and lawyers and businessmen instead of moldering in Israeli jails and Arab cemeteries.

But the Palestinians are sad puppets, ruled by kleptocrats who are themselves manipulated from afar. And it will always be so, unless they finally come to the realization that they have lost, but that will not happen in our lifetimes.
