Land: A Guarantee Of Rockets and Mortars



Published on Jul 8, 2013

http://thetruthaboutisrael.org.il is a NPO to educate and train the public about the "The Truth About Israel".
This edition examines Kerry's latest visit to the Middle East.

Our mission is to educate and train Israelis for hasbara, covering the core values of the state of Israel, and the fundamental rights and justice for the Jewish people; and to prepare diplomats, Israeli students, businessmen and professionals with the latest in pr and media techniques to promote Israel abroad and improve her standing in the international community. Fighting the delegitimization, BDS and incitement against Israel.






'Even if you give up all the land, it won't solve the problems in the Mideast'

An interview with Ayaan Hirsi Ali, author of "Infidel" • "From the perspective of the Arab leaders, reaching a two-state solution is to betray God. If you want peace and not merely a process, you must make peace with the people. The negotiators themselves are of no importance."


The conception of religion in the West in the 20th and 21st century differs from that of Middle Eastern Muslims. The West successfully separated religion and politics, but even in places in the West where there is no distinct separation, still the concept of God and religion, even in the 13th or 15th century, differs to the current reality in the Middle East.

Islam is an Orthopraxy, Islam has a goal. So if you are a true Muslim, you must fight for that goal. You can achieve a temporary peace or truce, but it is not ultimate, not everlasting. It is not just about the territory. Because the territory does not belong to the people; it belongs to God. So for a Palestinian leader -- even if he is secular, even an atheist -- to leave the negotiating room with the announcement of a two-state solution would mean that he would be killed the minute he walks out.

In a culture dictated by honor and shame - in addition to the religious issue - defeat of any kind, accepting a compromise, is to leave the room empty-handed. Compromise is loss in this culture. It is very hard to explain this to contemporary Westerners.

What these liberals do not understand is that we are speaking of a fundamentally different context, where such a judicial infrastructure does not exist, and those who aspire for it are a persecuted minority.
