Countercurrents has an opinion piece by Jafar Ramini, a Palestinian who lives in London:

I believe that for us Arabs to survive and progress we must have in common more than religion, language and rhetoric. We need unity, transparency and honesty.

We Palestinians are teetering on the edge of a precipice. Until very recently, every Arab leader, politician, cleric and pundit, given half a chance, would mount the platform and raise the Palestinian flag promising to do what is necessary to liberate the land and restore what is rightfully ours. Not any more.

The language has changed totally from support of the Palestinian cause to condemnation of us Palestinians, accusing us of being ungrateful architects of our own demise. The schism between some Arab regimes, especially in the Gulf and the Palestinians has been widening ever since the two Mohammads – Bin Zayid in the UAE and Bin Salman in Saudi Arabia took control. 

...This schism became even more  apparent during yet another meeting, this time in Cairo two days ago. The Foreign Ministers of the Arab League opposed a proposal put forward by the Palestinian side to condemn the UAE/Israel peace treaty. So, where is the unity? Where is the transparency? Where is the honesty.?

There is none.

You might think that this recent betrayal and open rejection should serve to bring the Palestinian leaders of all persuasions to a realisation that Palestine is not the core subject of most of the Arab regimes.
It sounds like Mr. Ramini might be close to getting it. But, no, the antisemitism that he grew up with is more powerful than actual self-assessment.

I don’t know what to say to those Arab leaders to convince them that any form of treaty with the Israelis is a folly.  Israel is in it for whatever it can distort or squeeze from any Arab country for the betterment and expansion of Israel. ....

Do those Arab leaders think for one moment that when Israel establishes a firm foothold in their countries it will play fair?
This cartoon in Felesteen captures the current Palestinian mindset. 

They are so certain that Israelis and Jews are the worst people on the planet that they are sitting back to wait for Israel to somehow destroy the Gulf. Because that's what Jews do.

And in the meanwhile, instead of thinking that maybe the Arab world that has supported them so much for so long might have some insights, they are convinced that they are right and they will happily ally with Iran to maintain their conceit. 

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
