How to win over the Muslims

Since the root cause of Jihadism, or at least the cause of its popularity, is the unending support and blank check the US grants to Israel, I think the US needs to fundamentally reorient its policy and treat Israel as the international outlaw that it is, and finally back Muslims claims against others.

I propose that in the next 10 years, the US fight two wars against Israel. First, one to support the detachment the West Bank and Gaza as a fully independent sovereign state and stop the genocide going on against the Palestinian people. And second, one to secure an enclave for Israel's Arab population within the "heartland" of the dubious colonially-drawn 20th-century borders. This second war will reduce Israel to the poorest nation in the region.

In other words, do to Jewish Israel on behalf of the Palestinians exactly what we did against Christian Serbia/Yugoslavia, on behalf of the Bosnians and Kosovar Albanians.

We can see how well that worked.

As it turns out, Dean Barnett's argumentation had absolutely nothing to do with the "depths torture apologists will sink to". They had to do with trying not to damn his parents.

Don't jump to conclusions!

We cannot "win over" the Muslims; they either are too infatuated with "jihad" and their multitude of hatreds, or they're too cowardly to confront those among their number who embrace those hatreds. In the long run, we can only deal with them the way the Mongols did.
