“…the Muslim World has a duty to arm the Palestinian nation by all means.”  ~Ayatollah Ali Khamenei (source)

That won’t work.

The Palestinians are closer to victory than they realize- but they’re never going to defeat the US-backed Israeli military. Fortunately, they don’t need to.

If I may digress for a moment:  one dirty little secret that  governor Rick Perry doesn’t want you to know is that the Texas economy is completely dependent on cheap labor from Mexico.  This is a pretty racist state, so he has to pretend that he’s Very Upset by “illegal” immigration, but the truth is that until unescorted children starting arriving- kids too young to work- this was not a priority for him.  He’s whined and moaned a bit, usually around election time, but he’s been  governor since 1999 and hasn’t done anything to staunch the flow.

The Israeli economy is in the same predicament, with an even more evil twist.  Their economy relies on cheap Palestinian labor, and to ensure a never ending supply they need to keep Palestine in poverty.  Under the guise of “fighting terrorism,” they come in every few years to blow up all the local businesses, leaving a hungry populace with no one else to turn to.

The best thing the Arab states could do would be to seal the borders- denying the Israeli Army the excuse they need, and Israeli businesses the cheap labor they crave- and build factories, schools, and businesses to make Palestine self-sufficient.

Lobbing firecrackers over the border plays right into their hands.  Do you really want to force Israel to the negotiating table?  Hit ’em in the pocket book.
