That Independent Palestinian State the President George W. Bush Was the First US President Officially to Back? Ain’t Gonna Happen…..

That Independent Palestinian State the President George W. Bush Was the First US President Officially to Back?  Ain’t Gonna Happen…..

One of the early faux pas of the current Administration was to go on record endorsing the establishment of a separate, independent “Palestinian State” on hard-fought-for land that Israel has been bullied to relinquish to its hapless “Palestinian” neighbors.

Taking this stand was a faux pas on so many levels:  First, no other US President had ever made such a stand; Second, it poked Israel in the eye; Third, it heightened Palestinian desires for the ever-elusive chimera of independence; and, finally, Fourth, because, as this recent article makes clear, it ain’t gonna happen.  (Hat tip: lgf.)

While the article linked to above is far more sympathetic to the “Palestinian” cause than I am, it makes clear that the greatest enemy of the realization of a “Palestinian State” in our lifetime is – not the Israelis, but – the “Palestinians” themselves, as well as their erstwhile “friends” in the Arab world.
