People say, “If Israel would only do this and that, there would be peace.” But it is the Palestinian Arab leadership that has rejected peace multiple times!
The Palestinian Arab Leadership
The Palestinian Arab leadership does not want peace, and they never have. What they want is to destroy Israel and the Jewish people through whatever means they can. That means murdering and killing innocent Jewish men, women, and children. That means burning Israeli fields and destroying Israeli homes.
The far Left likes to blame Israel for the lack of peace in the Middle East. But if you take a look at history, you will see that the Palestinian Arab leadership has turned down peace offers. Saeb Erekat, a chief PLO negotiator, even said that Mahmoud Abbas has rejected past Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert’s land offers. Olmert offered more land than he ever should have, yet Abbas STILL declined. How much more obvious could it be that Abbas and the leadership do not want peace?
It is not about Land
The reason the Palestinian Arabs are “angry,” for lack of a better word, is not about land. It is not because they want the land of Israel, which historically, Biblically, and legally belongs to the Jewish people. They just don’t want a Jewish state to exist. If they really wanted to make peace with Israel, peace would have come about long ago.
