Although the Fatah run Palestinian Authority, led by autocrat Mahmoud Abbas, publicly endorses a 2-state-solution to the US, UN, EU etc., the moment a Palestinian state was to gain independence, Hamas would eradicate Fatah exactly as it did in Gaza in 2007, and ‘Abbas and Associates’ know this as a guaranteed outcome…which is why Abbas is in his 12th year of a 4 year term as president…and having never agreed to peace offers by Israel.
By Hillel Fendel

Muslims Jews relations, historical conflict and the future for peaceGrowing up as a Muslim in Pakistan, I was taught to hate Jews and Israel and to participate in anti-Israel and anti-Zionism demonstrations.

Particularly in the wake of the terror attack in Tel Aviv’s Sarona market which left four dead and 16 wounded , the phenomenon threatens the livelihood of thousands of Arabs and, consequently, Jewish-owned business which employ them.
Maged Farag said the Palestinians are to blame for the lack of peace because “they don’t think it is in their interest…They don’t want to resolve their own problem…For over 70 years, the Palestinian cause has brought upon Egypt and the Egyptians nothing but harm, destruction, and expense.”
Egyptian historian Maged Farag called for normalizing relations with Israel in order to benefit economically and technologically, while saying the Palestinian struggle has caused “nothing but harm” for Egypt.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, author of “Infidel” says, “From the perspective of the Arab leaders, reaching a two-state solution is to betray God. If you want peace and not merely a process, you must make peace with the people. The negotiators themselves are of no importance.”
By Dror Eydar
There is something dignified in the quiet, determined manner of Ayaan Hirsi Ali as she rises from the audience and walks towards the podium to deliver her lecture. Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s intricate history starts in Somalia, where she was born to a Muslim family. At the age of five she underwent female genital mutilation.
