Gentile Warrior, does an excellent job of pointing-out the obvious truth, (obvious that is to anyone willing to hear the truth), of the so-called, "Palestinian" struggles, and just who is "really" to blame for their situation. THEY are to blame, not Israel, or the United States, or any other outside entity. The blame for the current "Palestinian" situation is their own fault, and it's past time that the world must acknowledge this truth.

Fault lies at the feet of the "Palestinians"
Sunday, June 17, 2007
Many people more educated than me have tried to parse up the blame for the current situation in the Gaza Strip. European, American, and Israeli policies and actions are sharing the blame for the "plight of the Palestinian". To do otherwise would be to place oneself into the status of bigot, xenophobe, and close minded. Decrying any Middle Eastern history prior to 1900 and focusing on hand picked events after the Balfour Declaration is all that is applicable to the modern situation. This is how the modern popular analyst and educator approaches the violence and hatred within "Palestinian" and islamic lands. This has become the new definition of pragmatism.
Israel withdrew from Gaza and left an infrastructure in place that the "Palestinians" should have been able to step right in and get running. Millions of dollars were donated by outside sources to ensure that this infrastructure would be workable. Millions of dollars given by sympathizers of the "Palestinian cause". How was the appreciation displayed? Within days of the withdrawl everything left behind had been looted and destroyed. I felt that the unilateral withdrawl, let alone any withdrawl, from the area would be a disaster. I had no reason to believe that the "Palestinians" would put down there weapons and commence building a modern workable society. They proved me right. However, despite what I had learned from the history of the region, the "Palestinians" were still given a viable chance to prove to us nay-sayers that we were wrong. They had an opportunity to start their trek into the modern world. They have proven that they lack the desire and the skill to do so.
The Bible tells us that Ishmael was the father of the Arabs. Ishmael would be a wild man. His descendants would continue this tradition. Nothing in the time since Ishmael would indicate otherwise. Modern Arabs live up to this expectation wholeheartedly. There is nothing the West or Israel could do that would change this. It is not the fault of the West or Israel that these fellow human beings live in a world of hatred and violence. Both of these "characteristics" are part of the human condition. In the west we do our best to temper these characteristics. By and large we have come to terms with it and have mildly controlled it. In the Middle East, these characteristics appear to be something that is manipulated and glorified.
The west, and a portion of Israelis, attempt to solve Middle Eastern problems in a Western manner. Unfortunately, these fellow human beings don't think like we do. They don't act like we do. They don't love like we do. Outside of being of the same species, we have very little in common. This has been the major fault in the wests approach. This approach can be deemed ignorant. I would label it naive. It replaces truth and fact with hope. This is a self defeating approach. The "Palestinians" rely on the fact that the West is compassionate, and in their minds, lack the resolve to defeat their archaic approach to life. We seem more than happy to continue with our failed approach.
The truth is, the fault for the "Palestinian" condition lies with the "Palestinian". They have chosen their present path. It is a path of violence and destruction. It is a path the parallels other societies path and often bleeds over. They don't wish to take this trek alone and are trying their best to bring others with them. I don't want to. Let them suffer on their own until they wake up one day and realize they have brought this all on themselves. Until that day, fight them with everything available. As of now, fighting them is protecting ourselves.
