    Bennett doesn't mention the Islamic doctrine of death to infidels. Contrary to the fantasizing academics and wishful Western leaders, the Muslim clerics have made clear, in their recent Fatwas, that "infidels" includes Christians and Jews. While Western leaders steadfastly ignore the doctrine, the Muslim World takes it very seriously. The two major branches of Islam, the Sunnis and the Shiites, each consider the other to be infidels, and have been killing each other for centuries, for that reason. That killing continues to this day, in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, Iraq, Mali, Libya, Sudan, Nigeria and Syria, to name a few of the affected countries. And so, the question is not, "can Israel enter into a peace agreement with a country whose citizens subscribe to the doctrine of death to infidels?". The question is, can Israel survive if it enters into a peace agreement with a country whose citizens subscribe to the doctrine of death to infidels. There are those who will argue that it can, and should, and to them, I say: Fine, let the Muslim World renounce the Islamic doctrine of death to infidels. And, if the Muslim World refuses, I say to the USA, Europe, the UN, and all of the others who criticize Israel for not entering into a peace agreement, "SHUT UP!"

    from the article: Bennett's 'shrapnel' comment may have been blunt, but his message was clear: No two-state solution
