Palestinian Leadership (1994)

(1994) Dry Bones cartoon: The Palestinian Leadership.
Today's Golden Oldie is from 18 years ago this month (April 1994).

Interestingly, I am convinced that the world understands that it is only the Israeli government that hungers for peace. The official Palestinian "leadership" spouts slogans that preach revenge, they demand an "end to occupation", glorify "martyrdom", and wallow in antiSemitism. Their kids are taught the ideology of victim-hood ...not a dream of Peace and an end to hatred and bloodshed. The Syrian dictator and the Saudi potentates, regularly dangle offers of "Peace" to Israel in return for Israeli concessions.

No one ever would ever ask what territories the Syrians are willing to offer in return for "Peace". No one ever asks what painful concessions the Palestinians will have to make for "Peace". This is because everyone knows the truth. When it comes to "Peace", as far as Arab leadership is concerned, they're not buying.

It's just not politically correct to say it.
