Arab leaders don't want peace with Israel

For Israel's enemies a two-state solution doesn't exist.

Regarding commentator Yousef Munayyer's piece on the movement to boycott Israel ("Cardin, don't tie U.S. hands for Israel," April 21), the Palestinians danced in the streets on 9/11.

Go watch them on the Internet and it will make you sick. Three thousand dead Americans and they are celebrating.

The Palestinians are led by Hamas, an Islamic terrorist organization and part of the global network of jihad financed and led by Iran. The Palestinians are just as much our enemy as ISIL or al-Qaida, the terrorists who attacked us on 9/11. Iran gave Hamas the 5,000 missiles it fired at civilian targets in Israel last year.

The Palestinians want to wipe Israel off the map and replace it with a Greater Palestine. This is their true aspiration. The two-state solution is something Palestinian propagandists thought up to tell the West what it wanted to hear. But in the Palestinian world, the concept of a two-state solution does not exist.

We should not give the Palestinians another cent. We should not help them to rebuild so they can attack Israel again — or us.

At least now some of the Palestinian people are talking about making peace and ending their 73-year war against Israel. Now they just have to get their leaders to listen. That is the route to peace.

Meanwhile, let's keep the players straight: Israel is our ally. Hamas is our enemy. We need to support our allies, not our enemies.
