A Response to Thomas Friedman's New York Times Op Ed Entitled "Bibi Netanyahu Makes Trump his Chump"

Thomas Friedman, you’ve covered the middle east your entire life but it seems that you lack one thing… the realization that the Palestinian issue is one of theology and not land.  The “land for peace” shtick has already been tried.  Two years after the Oslo Accords Yasser Arafat launched the second intifada.  Rocket and tunnel attacks from Gaza came out of Israel having given up land for peace.
You say that Netanyahu is a leader who is “forever dog paddling in the middle of the Rubicon, never ready to cross it”.  I find it interesting that you put the onus for this intransigence on Netanyahu.  What you don’t seem to understand is that the Muslim world is playing a game of “chicken” with Israel.  Netanyahu knows it but you don’t seem to.  In your desire for him to do something, whatever it might be, towards anything that resembles progress towards peace, what you and Obama and Kerry, et al, are really trying to do, whether you know it or not, is to force Netanyahu to flinch first.  Netanyahu knows that would be fatal.  I believe he knows, as do I, that the best that we can do is remain in this stalemate condition until either one side flinches or preferably the Arab world comes to the realization that Islam is at best, an entirely bankrupt world view.  You accuse Netanyahu of wanting to hold on to power.  I would say that Netanyahu’s primary concern is for the survival of the Jewish people.  I guess that’s a judgment call.
You complain that Israel can’t win any global support under Netanyahu.  Netanyahu has had his minions publicizing the good that Israel does in technological advancements, in benevolence towards Palestinians and wounded Arab Fighters in Syria.  He’s worked on making alliances in Africa and elsewhere.  The Palestinians also have a strong and phony propaganda network and, Thomas, give me a break… do editorial titles like “Bibi Netanyahu Makes Trump his Chump” sound like your helping his cause?  You’re being just a little hypocritical!
Yes… we are not only in an undesirable situation in the Middle East but we are, as you said, in a situation that “would keep Israel in a permanent conflict with Palestinians and the Muslim world as well as many Western democracies and their college campuses.”
You assume that Obama is a friend of Israel.  I assure you nothing is further from the truth.  He is reputed as a chronic liar.  He signed a treaty with Iran that supposedly kicks the nuclear can down the road 10 years.  Have you ever heard of the Islamic principle of Hudaybiyyah?  I suggest you read up on it. Ah but you say that he’s provided military support for Israel.  That’s true.  He’s obligated to maintain some political credibility.  In the meantime he got rid of Mubarak, a peace partner with Israel, and fought with congress to make good on US promises to Egypt in order to sell F-16s to the Muslim Brotherhood.  And now that he, apparently, seems to be leaving office, what you’ve interpreted as an act for good in forcing Netanyahu’s hand is really nothing more than his letting out all the stops because he doesn’t have to deal with the political consequences.
The very title of this Op Ed peace of yours not only undermines Netanyahu but Israel.  In the meantime, since it seems that you don’t understand what this Middle Eastern stalemate is all about, I suggest that you study up carefully on the doctrines and history of Islam which has killed over 270,000,000 people during its history.  

It has been sagaciously suggested that one should know ones enemies.  I’ll be honest with you.  It is Islam which is your enemy.  But your apparent lack of knowledge about Islam coupled with your potshots at Netanyahu seem to tell me that Islam is not your enemy but, in fact, Israel is.  I suggest that you start writing about sports or cooking or some other subject until you’ve well educated yourself on Islam and started acting like a Jew who loves his people and stopped acting like a shill for the Palestinians.

Good News for Palestinians - Bad News for Jews and Vice -Versa

I've got good news and bad news:
GOOD NEWS for Palestinians BAD NEWS for Jews and Israelis:
Palestinians preceded the Jews in the land (of what some of the world calls "Israel" today).
EXPLANATION: In Exodus 15 after the parting of the Red Sea, Israel took up what is called the Song of Moses. In it they reflect on the fact that what God did at the Red Sea would cause fear and trembling among the inhabitants of the land to which Israel was going. The text reads:
“The peoples have heard, they tremble;
Anguish has gripped the inhabitants of Philistia (Palestinians).
15 “Then the chiefs of Edom were dismayed;
The leaders of Moab, trembling grips them;
All the inhabitants of Canaan have melted away. (Ex 15:14-15)
The implication here is that the Philistines (Palestinians) had preceded Israel in the land.
BAD NEWS for Palestinians.
Palestinians can't claim to be who they say they are.
They claim to be Semites (Shemites). This is true. Arabs are descendants of Abraham through Ishmael (I believe also Esau and Abraham's other wife Keturah).
But if they claim to be Palestinians (Hamites) That's a completely different bloodline. Here's a reference...
(6 The sons of Ham were Cush and Mizraim and Put and Canaan. 7 The sons of Cush were Seba and Havilah and Sabtah and Raamah and Sabteca; and the sons of Raamah were Sheba and Dedan.... 13 Mizraim became the father of Ludim and Anamim and Lehabim and Naphtuhim 14 and Pathrusim and Casluhim (FROM WHICH CAME THE PHILISTINES) and Caphtorim.) (Emphasis added) Gen 10:67, 13-14.
1. You who live on this planet who call yourselves Palestinians,
You're either an Arab or a Palestinian... a Shemite (Semite) or a Hamite. It's genetically impossible to be both. So CHOOSE.
(come to think of it, maybe that's why the rest of the Arab world doesn't like you).
2. Perhaps if we can find the head, shield, sword and armor of Goliath we can donate it to the Palestinians to put in their presently empty museum.
