Modern, moderate King Abdullah just can’t abide the thought of even a sliver of what once had been land ruled by Islamic law now being governed by infidels, and so he demands that the Israelis make peace on disadvantageous terms, or else. Never mind the fact that the Muslims are the ones who have had all the trouble coexisting with others, and have given rise to organizations such as Hamas and Islamic Jihad (as well as the PA itself) that ultimately want to see Israel destroyed altogether.
From AFP, with thanks to Sr. Soph:
Jordan’s King Abdullah said Tuesday that if Israel wanted to “coexist with a billion Muslims” worldwide, it must make peace.
The king told the French news agency that the Arabs have already expressed their desire for peace by accepting the Saudi peace initiative.
