Palestinian Utopia

According to the perceptive and depressingly honest Carolyn Glick,
In the world of international diplomacy few issues receive more wall-to-wall support than the notion that it is essential to establish a Palestinian state. Leaders worldwide are so busy speaking of how essential it is for a State of Palestine to be founded that none of them seems to have noticed that it already exists.

This state was officially founded in the summer of 2005, when Israel removed its military forces and civilian population from the Gaza Strip and so established the first wholly independent Palestinian state in history. Israel's destruction of four Israeli communities in Northern Samaria and curtailment of its military operations in the area set the conditions for statehood in that area as well.

And so it is that as statesmen and activists worldwide loudly proclaim their commitment to establishing the sovereign State of Palestine, they miss the fact that Palestine exists. And it is a nightmare.
So, it ain't exactly paradise. As the article goes on,
In the State of Palestine, two-year-olds are killed and no one cares. Children are woken up in the middle of the night and murdered in front of their parents. Worshipers in mosques are gunned down by terrorists who attend competing mosques. And no one cares. No international human rights groups publish reports calling for an end to the slaughter. No UN body condemns anyone or sends a fact-finding mission to investigate the murders.

In the State of Palestine, women are stripped naked and forced to march in the streets to humiliate their husbands. Ambulances are stopped on the way to hospitals and wounded are shot in cold blood. Terrorists enter operating rooms in hospitals and unplug patients from life-support machines.

In the State of Palestine, people are kidnapped from their homes in broad daylight and in front of the television cameras. This is the case because the kidnappers themselves are cameramen. Indeed, their commanders often run television stations. And because terror commanders run television stations in the State of Palestine, it should not be surprising that they bomb the competition's television stations.
And now for the truly depressing part:
Yet this doesn't stop the US and Israel from pouring guns and money into the hands of Fatah terror chiefs.

[ . . . ]

And with each passing year, as the reality of Palestine has become clearer, the Israeli leadership's will to resist this pressure is increasingly eroded.

So it is that last week Defense Minister Amir Peretz announced that he supports negotiating with Hamas. Peretz laid out his "vision" for the reinstatement of the so-called peace process with the Palestinians, and stated that, to "empower" the Palestinians, he supports extending the ban on IDF operations from Gaza to Judea and Samaria. It should go without saying that such IDF operations are aimed at preventing massacres of Israeli civilians like the one that happened in Eilat Monday morning.
So the Palestinians, due to the moral cowardice of the West, and the totally blind and inept American and Israeli leadership, have been allowed to create a terrorist haven. And we are told that they deserve more.

How much longer can this insanity continue? How much more insane will it get? Are we in the West really this eager to whittle away at our freedoms and our way of life and put ourselves at the mercy of Islam?

Note to our leaders: It's way past time to fight back. While we've been worried about hurting deicate Muslim sensibilities, they've been murdering us and weakening our societies in every way they can. Wake up, you dopes.

Note about Carolyn Glick. She is honest and she is important to read. If she were as funny as Mark Steyn, she would be easier to read. I do enjoy laughing as I read about the impending destruction of my civilization.
