Why there won’t be Peace in our Time

This isn’t news; it’s been going on for decades. But that’s just why we need reminding.

Neville Chamberlain failed to understand that you can’t make peace with a megalomaniac.  Now Western leaders continue in their failure to understand that you can’t make peace with an entire culture devoted to your annihilation.

Jonathan Rosenblum reminds us how that culture has been cultivated among the Palestinians.

    There will not be peace in our time because our time is not that of Moshiach.

    Well, strictly speaking we won’t know whether we’re living in the messianic era until Moshiach reveals himself to those who are prepared to recognize him.

    In the meantime, we have the obligation to do our own hishtadlus — to employ all the resources available to us in trying to solve our own problems while, simultaneously, acknowledging that effort only produces results with the help of heaven. This combination of personal responsibility and trust in the Almighty is part of how we hasten the End of Days.

    Your main point, however, that the problems of the Mideast in particular and the world in general will never be fully solved through human efforts, is absolutely correct.

    Undoubtedly, common Palestinians would love to see Israel vanishing away, but in the list of their daily priorities getting rid of Jews does not occupy even a hundredth place.

    I’m afraid I’m missing your point, Dan.
