The Palestinians are the problem

Dennis Prager (who I often find irritating), nails it this time:

First and foremost, it proves what people who perceive reality have been saying for decades: The great majority of Palestinians -- like the majority of Arabs elsewhere and like vast numbers of non-Arab Muslims -- want Israel destroyed. Even granting legitimacy to the argument that the complete moral, financial and political corruption of Fatah was partly responsible for the Hamas victory, those who voted for Hamas did not find that organization's terror, religious celebration of murder or charter calling for Israel's destruction an impediment to their vote.

It is true that in 1933, some Germans who voted for the Nazis did so out of anger at the Versailles Treaty and because of the economic chaos that engulfed their country. Indeed, it is widely agreed among historians that Hitler played down anti-Semitism in the Nazis' electoral campaigning. But every German voter was aware of the ferocity of the Nazis' Jew-hatred. And, whatever the case in 1933 Germany, in 2006 Palestine, Hamas has never played down its anti-Semitism or its support for continuing terrorism.

So the Palestinian vote reveals the falsity of the worldwide Left's view of the Palestinians as committed to peace. It likewise reveals the falsity of the Left's belief that Palestinian terror is supported by a small minority of the Palestinian population.

The problem with the Palestinians is that they have bred (literally) their children to hate us.

You can't change a society overnight that, to this very day, teaches their children that Jews are sub-human.

Even if they changed their educational system now, it will take another generation before the remote possibility of peace to begin to blossom.

One more thing, congrats on the election. I have never been more proud of Canada in my life. You guys finally elected a conservative government.

I swear when I heard the news I broke out in song... "O Canada"
