Why The U.S. Needs To Let the Israeli's and Palestinian's Solve Their Own Crisis

November 21, 2012 by Andrew17

We live under the false notion in the United States that if we just assert ourselves into the situation we can control the out come. This notion isn't new, we can look at Egypt as a classic case of national overconfidence. Between the 16th century BC and the 11th century BC, the new kingdom of Egypt, also referred to as the Egyptian Empire is the peak of Egyptian power. While the fall of Egypt was gradual compared to other nations, we all know by 1882 the British occupation began and didn't end until 1953. Like other powerful nations before Egypt, Egypt tried to do too much with limited power, even though at a time they were the most powerful nation in the world    Read more

Black September, September 1972

IT WOULD HAVE BEEN the crime of the century if there just weren’t so many others to compete with it. In the early hours of September 5, 1972, a group of Palestinian terrorists calling themselves Black September climbed over the fence surrounding the virtually unprotected Olympic village in Munich and entered the quarters of the Israeli team. There, claiming vengeance for the Israeli military’s expulsion of Christian Palestinians from the villages of Ikrit and Biram in 1948, they took eleven Israeli hostages in exchange for the freeing of 232 incarcerated Palestinians along with the German terrorists Andreas Baader and Ulrike Meinhof plus the Japanese terrorist Kozo Okamoto.    Read more

Netanyahu Wants Peace But Refuses To Recognize Palestine

April 19, 2009 by Sahil Kapur

Some apparent double-talk from new Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. Here's MSNBC: Benjamin Netanyahu, taking office as Israel's new leader Tuesday, promised to seek "full peace" with the Arab and Muslim world, but refused to utter the words the world was waiting to hear: "Palestinian state." "Under the permanent status agreement, the Palestinians will have all the authority to rule themselves," Netanyahu said in comments that appeared to hark back to a decades-old notion that peace could be achieved through limited Palestinian autonomy. He's claiming he wants "full peace" but he refuses to acknowledge the need for an independent Palestinian state free of occupation and oppression from a foreign power. Surely he must experience some cognitive dissonance. Trouble is, Netanyahu has explicitly pointed out on numerous occasions that he has no intention of recognizing a Palestinian state, and considers any attempt at a peace process a "waste of time."    Read more
