    A state that seeks peace with its enemies must, before anything else, understand the mindset of its enemies. Uzi Benziman makes no effort to do so, and would have Israel ignore Islamic law in its foreign policy. Islamic law makes it illegal and immoral for a Muslim-dominated state to enter into any treaty or agreement with a non-Muslim state. That is Islamic law, at the very foundation of Muslim thinking. Peace equals weakness in the Muslim midset, a hudna, an acknowledgment that time is needed to fortify forces prior to resuming the armed struggle. Peace is not a goal for a Muslim country. To ignore this reality, to ignore explicit, black-letter Islamic law, is to doom Israel. To the extent some Egypt signed a peace treaty, do not be fooled. Egypt spews out the vilest of anti-Semitic hate literature, and assists in the building of tunnels to smuggle weapons into the Palestinian territories. Uzi Benziman is guilty of the grossest naivete and refusal to confront reality.
