Who Is Responsible for the Suffering of the Palestinians?
Palestinians at funeral There is no doubt that there is real suffering among the Palestinians living in Gaza and the West Bank (which is actually ancient Judea and Samaria). The question is who, precisely, is most responsible for their suffering?

Certainly, Israel is far from blameless in its treatment of the Palestinians, and it helps no one when we overlook or whitewash Israel's failings, as some Christian Zionists are prone to do.

But is Israel primarily responsible for the difficult living conditions faced by the Palestinians today? Absolutely not. The blame lies squarely at the feet of the Palestinian leadership.

Consider that in 1936, Haj Amin Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, later a collaborator with Hitler and the father of many of today's radical Islamic movements, had this to say about living in peace with the neighboring Jews: "There is no place in Palestine for two races. The Jews left Palestine 2,000 years ago, let them go to other parts of the world, where there are wide vacant places."

In contrast, in 1937, David Ben-Gurion, later to be Israel's first prime minister, said, "We do not wish and do not need to expel Arabs and take their place. All our aspiration is built on the assumption-proven throughout all our activity in the land of Israel-that there is enough room in the country for ourselves and the Arabs."

Ten years later, when the U.N. had proposed separate states for the Jews and the Arabs, Golda Meir said, "We are happy and ready for what lies ahead. Our hands are extended in peace to our neighbors. Both States can live in peace with one another and cooperate for the welfare of their inhabitants." read more
