Palestinians Throw In With The Wrong Side Again

The PLO was cozy with Saddam Hussein, in a marriage born of hatred of Israel.  When Saddam was overthrown, Palestinians lost not only an important ally, but also experienced a backlash from Iraqis.

Palestinians appear to be making the same mistake again, throwing in with the current Syrian regime and Hezbollah to organize a gate-crashing of the Israeli border.

This phony attempt to bring the "Arab Spring" to Israel is another strategic mistake by the Palestinians.  Not only does it demonstrate that Palestinians want the destruction of Israel and therefore are not peace partners, but it also casts the Palestinians on the opposite side of other Arab populations.

Never missing an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

  1. Being a pawn is one thing. Being a willing pawn is quite another.

  2. The Palestinians really are their own worst enemies.

  3. As Abba Eban noted long ago--in an observation that's sadly still just as astute--the Palestinians never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

    As should be obvious by now, if only because of what they've done in Gaza since it became wholly theirs, opportunity is not what they're after. Jew killing is. In the parable, they're the scorpion and the rest of the "civilized" world that insists peace can and should be made with them is the grasshopper.
