There are two very troubling things about this statement. First, calling Meretz a bunch of Arabs is silly nationalist rhetoric to be polite (or vicious political hatred worthy of Nazis, to be blunt). While the party counts as members and voters many Arabs, these are most often the most moderate of all Arabs, who desire nothing more than the two-state solution even the halfwit hardliners in Likud have finally understood is both essential and inevitable. Second, it's terribly stupid to paint all Arabs with the same brush. Yes, far too many Arabs are in league and either actively or passively supportive of terror. That's a big problem which requires not only Western action but that of Arabs themselves. Even Siegman's seemingly learned article ignores this most important of facts. For the Palestinians to have any future they must act. As we Jews have done for over a century, our Arab neighbors must step up to claim their state. They must sever ties to Hammas and other terrorist organizations and promote leaders who will advocate something other than this longstanding suicidal approach.
