Given Israel's border with Lebanon and Syria, either hosting or occupied by Iran-backed terrorist groups calling for a Judenrein Islamic waqf — a greater Palestine cleansed of all Jews — for Israel to add a third border with a Palestine state would only reduce its already tattered security.
Historical denial, Arab propaganda, liberal guilt, and anti-Semitism serve to legitimizea demand for a sovereign Palestinian state where none has ever existed. The claim of "apartheid" is only the latest charge in the effort to delegitimize Israel.
Only when Palestinians give up on their anti-Zionist dream of destruction will they be able to invest their efforts to creating an attractive polity, economy, society, and culture. Only when Palestinians give up destroying can they build, writes Daniel Pipes.
