| 70 Years. Endless Negotiations. Yet No Peace. Here’s Why.
| Friday, October 11, 2019
Jihad Watch : Ever since the modern State of Israel was founded in 1948, and even
before that, there have been attempts to negotiate a peace settlement
that would enable Israelis and their neighbors to live side-by-side in
an atmosphere of harmony and mutual tolerance.
|The Palestinian Delusion|
Presidents, Kings, Premiers, dictators, strongmen, weaklings — all of
them and more gave their best efforts to achieving a peace settlement. All failed. Yet every new American administration, every new President, every new
Secretary of State, thinks that he or she possesses the solution that
has eluded everyone else. Everyone thinks he can untie the Gordian knot
that has confounded the world. And again, all fail.
It is one of the most curious situations that has ever occurred in
world history: peace settlement after peace settlement has failed, yet
no one ever seems to stop and wonder why. Instead, they go back to the
drawing board, thinking that this time will be unlike all the others,
this time the key to peace will be revealed, this time they’ll finally
hit upon the secret.
In The Palestinian Delusion: The Catastrophic History of the Middle East Peace Process, I tell the fascinating, never-before-told story of these negotiations, and I do
provide the key that has eluded everyone else: in this book, I show why the negotiations failed, and why the entire “peace process” has been
ill-conceived from the start.
And yes, I do offer a way forward out of this most intractable of problems. This is one of the only books to buck the convention wisdom about
this vexed issue, which affects not only the Middle East, but the entire
world — and American policy. It’s long past time for a realistic appraisal of the situation and a
new approach. The book will be out December 3. You can preorder it here.
More about it coming soon.
