On the surface there are always going to be warts and bad apples. Liberal fanatics like Haas focus on the tiny picture, which is often unpleasant and does not photograph well. The bigger picture is that the Arabs turned down the 1947 partition plan that included the Galilee in Arab hands, no outside access to Jerusalem for Jews, most of the fertile lands in Arab hands, most of the water in Arab hands and indefensible borders for the Jews. Haas cannot bring back all those dead Israelis. The acts of war in 1948, 1956, 1967 and 1973 places all the burden to find peace and compromise at the foot of the Arab world. We all know that the Arabs have not yet acknowledged their mistakes and taken responsibility for them. I am not willing to let them off the hook. Amira Haas is. They have not yet accepted Jews and Jewish history. Until that happens, Amir Haas's comments work only to undermine the Jewish State an should be rejected at every turn.
