Whose Land Is It Anyway? Part 4

  People who have not done the research are always on the Israelis' case claiming that they just don't want to share the Land with their Arab neighbors.   
  Over and over again, they sing to the Israelis...

  "All we are saying, is give peace a chance!" 

  But how much of a chance does Israel have of securing a peace agreement with people who are committed to their extermination?

  Not many of Israel's staunchest critics are even aware of the Arab track record at peace talks with Israel. Most folks have not the slightest idea of the level of Arab intransigency over the decades as, apparently, it is not "politically correct" for anyone to point it out. But there is a track record which we can turn to which definitively shows us who it is that does not want peace.

 Here is a partial list:

 1937 Peel Commission Partition Plan

    the Jews accepted 

    the Arabs rejected 

  1947 UN Partition Plan

    the Jews accepted  

    the Arabs rejected  

  1949 Rhodes Armistice Talks

    the Jews accepted  

    the Arabs rejected

  Can anyone see a pattern developing yet? 

  In 1967, after the Israelis won the 6 Day War, Abba Eban told the Arabs everything is on the table, except Jerusalem.

And yet, and yet once again,

    the Arabs rejected the offer

  1978 Camp David Accords

    the Jews accepted

    the Arabs rejected

  1981 Fahd Plan, and in 1982 the Fez Plan, the Reagan Plan, and the Brezhnev plan

  neither camp accepted

  In sum, since 1937 there have been at least 31 chances for Palestinian statehood on Jewish land, not including more recent attempts. All of them have failed.

  The Arabs have never agreed to recognize the right of Israel to exist as a Jewish state. They only want one thing: to wipe Israel off the face of the map.

  We've said it once, we'll say it again. Islam commands all Muslims to follow the orders of their prophet Muhammad who, on his deathbed,  vowed:

  "I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula and will not leave any but Muslim." (Sahih Muslim 4366)

  Even worse, Muhammad's Quran commands this of Muslims, 

"Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued." Quran 9:29

  This is the real reason why there can be no peace between Muslims and Jews and Christians, who Muhammad called "the People of the Book." While Muhammad at first reached out to Jews and Christians with his message of Islam, he turned against them when they rejected him as a false prophet. And it has been nothing but "holy war" ever since.

  The command is to subjugate all who will not submit to their god. Each non-Muslim is given three choices: convert to Islam, live as a despicable infidel and pay a regular tax for his/her continued existence, or die.

  It isn't about land. 

  It isn't about a displaced "ancient Palestinian tribe" because no such entity ever existed. 

  It's all about a religion that mandates violence and murderous hatred for people you have never even met. The Jews first, and then the Christians. 

  All the more reason for all believers to heed King David's exhortation to:

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
“May those who love you prosper;
may there be peace within your walls,
prosperity within your fortresses.”  
Psalm 122:6-7
