I don't see what this video is trying to prove.
It only shows that natanyahu - surprise, surprise - understands the situation. This is something that anyone moderately educated about this situation
could infer on their own.
Palestinian/Arabs, for the most part, have been enormously chauvinistic with regard to their "ownership" of 'every last centimeter' of land that
the Jews control - including Tel Aviv, etc - simply all of it. And Natanyahu, etc, are forced into the uncomfortable reality that they will have to
play hardball with them if they are going to force them to be REASONABLE.
A reasonable person isn't willing to "push the Jews into the sea" - that is lunatic rhetoric, which unfortunately was common and is still largely
accepted by hardliners and Islamists in the Arab world.
You know what is reasonable? Accept the established reality of a Jewish state. When you do that - and arent willing to 'sacrifice' the lives of
Arabs and jews to "throw the Jews into the sea" in an endless incessant battle - peace will develop.
And btw - aren't we trying to establish a deeper humanistic sense of human connectedness in the world? I don't see how the Arabs - and their demands
- conduce to this approach.
Like i've said and will continue to say, the Arab/Muslim world is in a state of trauma: they haven't yet "let go' of the traditional/conservative
dogma of Islam. The whole "dar al Islam"/"dar al harm" dichotomy with which they splice the world. Until that happens: until humanism becomes the
ruling - and justyifiably default approach to understanding self and reality - until Palestine becomes more like israel, ideologically and
spiritually, we wont see any change.
And this applies as much to Egypt etc as to Palestine. Islamists are a #ing nightmare to deal with.
