As Peraeus says, almost all in the Arab world express support for the Palestinians. But do they mean it? Look at the hundreds of millions of dollars in aid the Arabs promised the PA, of which only a small percentage was sent. Look how "Palestinians" living in other Arab countries are treated as third-class citizens, if they are granted any citizen rights at all. Most of the violence in the Mid-East today is Arab against Arab in conflicts that have nothing to do with Israel. But they all use anti-Israel, or anti-Semitism, as a rallying point. When two Arab factions fighting each other call each other "Zionist," I stop taking them seriously. The Arabs have been fighting each other for centuries. The only difference now is that they use Israel as an excuse. Should Israel make peace with the PA, the Arabs will find some other excuse to fight.
