Abbas Goes Off Deep End, And Even the NYT Can’t Overlook It
Hate always will out, it is too powerful to contain.
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes at BrainyQuote.com. But hate will always out.
The old unseemly antisemite can't help himself, he personifies the hate of a people, vicious, feral, ugly, inchoate. The hate of a people whose enemy has done nothing so much as create, build, and prosper. How the comparison between Palestinian and Israeli must gall, anger, and frustrate them. Just as the ne'er-do-well brother hates the successful, so it is between the Israeli and Palestinian/Arab.
This will only worsen as we watch the Arab House of Saud attempt to create an economy. The chances they will are microscopic, they have not the will, determination, or grit to do the real work, and hiring it done will not create that which must be created, only a simulacrum of it.
Persian industry, creativity, and prosperity also will out, if America can keep its hands off of this conflict. This will be a good. We have chosen the wrong ally.
For the Arab, the lesson is that culture matters. Wedding one's entire peoples to a vile death cult, offers no way forward.
Now if we can just restrain our idiotic political betters, and allow this to happen, the Middle East may have a shot at betterment.
