From Israel’s prestigious Begin-Sadat Center, Bar Ilan University: The more you pull the thread to appease the jihadists, the more the sweater unravels. Hand them Kosovo today, the more pressure builds to chop up Israel too.
“Strong American support for the independence of Kosovo is detrimental to Israeli interests. Washington futilely hopes to curry favor with the Islamic world through appeasement; effectively gives a fresh impetus to the ongoing growth of Islamic influence in Europe; and denies the fact that the putative states leaders are tainted by terrorism, criminality, and well-documented links with global jihad. Most importantly, it betrays a cynically postmodern contempt for all claims based on the historical rights and spiritual significance of a land to a nation” — claims at the heart of modern Israel.
