Going Around in Circles

Today, Islam religious leaders expressed their worldview on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Here's what one had to say.

Sheikh Riyad Salah, head of the Islamic movement in Israel has also been active teaching the tenets of Islamic revolution.

We are at the gates of the Islamic revolution, he proclaims in his sermons to Arab citizens of Israel. The global forces of evil will be eliminated from the world and the Islamic nation will remain in place in order to bring about the world Islamic revolution, with its capital, Jerusalem. Hat tip: Clarity & Resolve

While these words are being proclaimed for an Islamic revolution, and the establishment of an Islamic nation with Jerusalem as it's capital, Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice is scurrying hither and thither trying to broker peace in talks between the PA's Abbas and Israel's Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.

Once again, the question of border crossings is coming up.
"What is needed is some agreement on how to improve freedom of movement" for Palestinians living in Gaza, she said after meeting Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas.

Israel maintains tight controls on passage in and out of the narrow coastal strip that is home to more than a million Palestinians.

Israel comes under almost daily Qassam rocket attacks and suffered another terrorist homicide bombing in Hadera that killed six Israelis on October 26, 2005. And recently, this:

But Mr Wolfensohn, who speaks for the UN, Russia, the EU and the US, added that there had been several incidents of explosives being smuggled in in trucks headed to Israel.

When a country is faced with calls for an Islamic revolution, rocket attacks, suicide bombings, and attempts at smuggling explosives into it, that country has no choice but to keep it's borders tight and restrict movement.
If Palestinians fight terrorism, and Israel works to improve the daily lives of the Palestinian people, peace is both hopeful and realistic.
Condoleezza Rice

The big if in this formula is if the Palestinians fight terrorism. That is the true road to peace, for the terrorism against Israel to end. I'll not be holding my breath.

All they want is what their twisted holy book promises them: world supremacy. And death to the Jews, of course.

How simple of a concept is it for "Palistine to potrol its own side of the border"?

How simple of a concept is it for Palestinian terrorists to quit killing Israelis?
