Yesterday the Jerusalem Post posted an article detailing some recent comments about support for the proposed state of Palestine from Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
According to the article:
Earlier on Saturday, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei rejected the Palestinians’ UN statehood bid, saying any deal that accepted the existence of Israel would leave a “cancerous tumor” forever threatening the security of the Middle East.
As leader of a country under a long-standing threat of military action from Israel and the United States, Khamenei warned the Jewish state and its allies to expect “paralyzing blows” that a NATO missile shield could not prevent.
“Any plan that seeks to divide Palestine is totally rejected,” Khamenei told a conference commemorating the Palestinian Intifada.
The conference was commemorating the Palestinian Intifada as if it were a good thing. Do we really need another terrorist state?
The article further reports:
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Saturday responded to anti-Israel comments made by Iran’s supreme leader, saying the Ayatollahs’ declarations of “their intentions to annihilate Israel, give credence to the government’s insistence on Israel’s security needs and our demand that Israel be recognized as a Jewish state.”
The Jews (and Israel) are the canary in the coalmine of the world. When bad things happen to the Jews, something happens to the fabric of society that causes the basics of civilization to break down. To allow the current entity that calls itself Palestine to become officially a state is to kill the canary in the coal mine. Until Palestine can demonstrate that it wants a two-state solution (not a one-state solution with it as the only state) to the question of Israel and Palestine, it cannot be allowed to become a state. Until Palestine recognizes Israel’s right to exist, it should not be allowed statehood.
