right to another arab state

Dennis Prager says: "Israel... recognises the right of the fauxs to have a state". OK - so long as it's NOT IN Eretz Yisroel. They came as economic migrants to Our Land. Does every economic migrant in every other country have the right to declare their own state there? Of course not. the fauxs are utterly wrong and flying in the face of Emes. Hashem gives, Hashem takes away.

The problem is that the Arabs want ONE thing and ONE thing only: The death of all Jews,not just in Israel, but in the world!

They have said so time after time but the world doesn't give a royal damn.

Once again, we are ALONE.

If you look at the list of countries with diplomatic and/or business relations with Israel you will see that in fact Israel has many partners/friends.

America is doing the right thing

I Ibelieve America is doing the right thing with our French allies in the Middle ast and I expect the same support would be given to Isreal.

Even funnier....

n the week after the 1967 war the Israeli government through US "good offices" offered to return there and the to the Green Line - the 1949 armistice border in return for a peace treaty that closed the dispute and elevated the Green Line into a legal frontier - borders are generic and can be anything, but "frontier" like "marriage" carries a stack of legalities.

So plain and simple in the nut shell....

Yes it's sound so simple to bring PEACE and yet so difficult PEACE to acquire. Thank you Sir for simplicity you presented. I pray Peace, State of ISRAEL and its people. G-D Bless.

What's the problem in the middle-east

It's obvious, they hate Jews. It's perennial. The question begs to be asked, "Why?" Because the Jews are G-d's people and the people who hate Jews really hate G-d.

One more thing:

Mr. Prager refers to Israel "occupying" the West Bank. I see it as Israel having reunified the West Bank after the 6-Day War in '67, which had been seized and truly occupied by Jordan after the War of Independence in 1948.

Right on the mark, except for 1 thing:

Succinct and poignantly presented. The only critique I'd make, which appears to be a problem of political correctness that plagues the entire world, is that the people we call Palestinians are predominantly Arabs. And these Arabs already have a homeland where ~70% of these so-called Palestinians live and where 78% of the Palestine mandate existed--in a country called Jordan. Israel is one of, if not the only, country in the world who amputates part of itself for peace. The deal should be peace-for-peace, not land-for-peace. As stated, the Arabs/Muslims are not interested in peace with Israel and their half-brethren--they're interested only in their demise. And what better way to achieve this than to demand land for peace. They know they can get away with this approach because they are some of the of the world's major oil suppliers. If they had no oil, no one would be paying attention to them (except to destroy their terrorists). Mr. Prager, thank you for a great film.

Absolute clear true and undeniable statement of the arab-israeli issue (conflict) Why is this not put in the whole worlds media? People are mislead by a hostile malissious propaganda driven by hate and jelousy. Translate this into French, Spanish, Arabic, Hindu, Chineese, Russian, and all langueges and broadcast it weekly and put it in the important media (newspapers) outlets. TRUTH IS SIMPLE !

Fabulous synopsis!!! Thank you and may GOD bless you for yet another courageous attempt at making plain what is already painfully transparent!

Is there a better solution?

Dennis Prager has the better solution, then the twisted hatefilled garbage comming from the Arab World, on how to have peace in Ireal!

(6) Marlene Wiltshire, November 22, 2010 2:00 AM

Just telling it like it is

Absolutely correct and brilliantly stated. Your articles are always interesting and true.

Israel's right to exist

Wonderful video. It states the problem very succinctly. There is no other country that is under a constant threat of annihilation and yet when it tries to defend itself and casualities result it is viewed as the villain. If one were to substitute another democratic country such as France or Italy or Great Britain in this scenario one would immediately realize how ludicrous the criticism is.

the Middle East Problem

so simple and so true!

(3) JJ, November 21, 2010 6:28 PM

Oh, well...

This vid is great! The world will not listen, though. They will roll their eyes, and assume that the propoganda spewed out by their left-wing (or sometimes right-wing) journalists is more accurate than facts.

El Salvador/Israel

What is real here, Israel, is a conflict that has thrust Arabs into conflict with Jews, as so well stated because it's about something more than, peace. It's about hatred, and hatred is corrosive and self and other destructive. Salvador is about savior, and salvation, and I am thinking there is a solution to this problem but it will involve the Arab states that do surround Israel, and it will involve them in a new way, in a new way and wave of recognition of a problem that is ancient and about the error in terror itself. I see a solution to the problem and it has everything to do with a mind set, and an opening of minds, that is about the use of resources, of land, in new ways, and in a new kind of revisioning of home and what it means to embrace humanity, as we're all in this together. Until then, it seems this fighting will continue and yes, there is no way to negotiate with people who want you dead. That's not possible. It's an indefensible position that does require defense.
