Current events tell the whole story. (1) Joe Biden seeks a “two-state solution”. (2) Joe Biden seeks to reinstate the nuclear deal with Iran. (3) Nancy Pelosi and The Squad seek to cancel America’s support for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system.
(1) What does “solution” mean, in a “two-state solution”? We don’t have to guess. Palestinians and Iranians tell us exactly what it means. In the short term, “solution” means statehood and UN voting rights for a Palestinian state — knowing in advance that the Hamas and PLO Charters call for the destruction of Israel and jihad against Jews and Christians — and knowing in advance that the only viable economic future for a Palestinian state is to conquer and occupy Israel. In the longer term, “solution” means exactly what the Hamas and PLO Charters say it means — it means what Nazis call the “Final Solution”.
(2) What does reinstating the nuclear deal with Iran mean? Iran denies the Holocaust. Iran is the world’s largest exporter of terrorism, with a focus against Israel. Iran brags about achieving greater progress toward a nuclear weapon than allowed by the nuclear deal. American taxpayers have no idea what happened to the $1.3 billion of cash that America delivered on pallets to Iran. Iran brags about having a nine-point plan to destroy Israel. Iran tells us exactly what reinstating the nuclear deal means — more terrorism, more nuclear weapons, and the destruction of Israel.
(3) What does cancellation of support for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system mean? The Iron Dome has defense capability only, no offensive capability. It’s only capability is to defend Israel against rockets launched by Israel’s neighbors. Cancellation of support for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system means Israel without any defense against incoming rockets.
As a freshman at an Ivy League university in 1963, I ate lunch with another freshman — a Kuwaiti. As he expressed pride in his heritage, he explained that Arabs intend to destroy Israel. He drew a map of Israel on a napkin, and explained how Arabs could build a dam that would eliminate Israel’s supply of drinking water.
In 1963, I should have understood. Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, The Squad, Iran, and Palestinians helped me understand.
