The most important line of this story out of Israel

…is likely a throw away line for this AP story about this Syr­ian who hitch­hiked into Israel after slip­ping over the bor­der but I think it needs to be repeated loudly:

I don’t rec­og­nize any­thing about the state of Israel,” he added.

But I thought the Arabs were all about a two state solu­tion? It couldn’t be this “peace­ful” protest action isn’t about peace?

Let’s also pay atten­tion to the end of the story:

The bor­der breach was more a sym­bolic achieve­ment against Israel than a vic­tory, Hijazi said.

The real thing will hap­pen between armies, he said.

The sooner we rec­og­nize that the Arabs are and con­sider them­selves in a war of anni­hi­la­tion with Israel (as his­tory shows us) the wiser our pol­icy will be.
