The Post Millennial posted an article today about the ongoing rocket attacks on Israel.
The article reports:
…The White House issued a milquetoast response to Tuesday’s violence. Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that “Jerusalem, a city of such importance to people of faith around the world, must be a place of coexistence.”
Has the White House noticed that when Jerusalem is under Israel’s control, Christians, Muslims, and Jews all have access to their religion’s holy sites? When Jerusalem is under Muslim control, only Muslims have access to their religious sites.
The article notes:
The funding authorized by Biden called for “$150 million through the United Nations relief agency UNRWA, $75 million in US economic and development assistance and $10 million for peace-building programs,” Blinken said in a statement regarding the reversal of Trump’s funding cuts.
UNWRA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency) “provides aid and relief services to around 5.7 million registered Palestinian refugees in the occupied West Bank, Gaza Strip and across the Middle East.”
Biden administration spokesperson Edward Price said in April when the funding was restored that funding Palestinians supports “Israeli Palestinian understanding,” and that it “aligns with the interests of the United States.”
Let’s quickly examine the problems with a two-state solution. In 2012 I posted an article that included the following picture of a kindergarten graduation ceremony in Gaza.
These children are being taught that it is their duty to become martyrs and free Jerusalem from Jewish control. As long as those concepts are being taught in Arab schools, there can be no two-state solution. It is foolishness to negotiate with people who want to kill you and take over your country.
The article concludes:
The Biden administration in April also “signaled that they want to re-establish the goal of a negotiated two-state solution as a priority in US policy on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,” Reuters reported.
On Tuesday, Blinken reflected that sentiment, saying that “Israelis and Palestinians need to be able to live in safety and security, as well as enjoy equal measures of freedom, security, prosperity, and democracy.”
Trump in 2018 had blocked almost all of the aid that Biden has now restored, and halted all ties with the Palestinian Authority. Trump’s decision was preceded by Palestinian leaders refusing to work with the Trump administration’s Middle East peace efforts after the US moved the US embassy from Tel Aviv, which suffered under Hamas assault on Tuesday, to Jerusalem.
The people currently raining rockets down on Israel do not want peace. They want the destruction of Israel so that they can claim Israeli land as their own.
