    The plight of those who insult Islam - and the very existence of Israel is clearly considered an insult - reveals much about the difficulty Israel faces in trying to find a peaceful solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict.
    In 1989 Ayatollah Khomeini issued a fatwa or death sentence against Salman Rushdie - once a Muslim but now an atheist - for having the audacity to write what he believes to be the truth about his former religion and its oppressive culture. Fittingly it was Khomeini, not Rushdie, who died in 1989.
    As recently as 2005 Khomeini's successor, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, reaffirmed the death sentence claiming only the issuer may rescind it.
    How convenient.
    Many Muslims, perhaps even most, reject the fatwa and Rushdie is still alive but Iran's Revolutionary Guards have declared that the death sentence on him is still valid and, despite their having promised to take no action against Rushdie - a promise made to reestablish diplomatic relations with Britain, he still receives a "sort of Valentine's card" from Iran each year on February 14th letting him know the country has not forgotten the vow to kill him.
    The Islamists still have all the justification they need to carry out their heinous mission.

    the answer is-----essentially ---NO. Islam cannot live with the existence of Israel ----but then again-----Islam cannot live with the existence of Hindu India or the existence of Catholic Spain In all cases-----there was a time in history when muslims murdered, raped and pillaged and conquored and oppressed and enslaved in all of these lands and that makes them MUSLIM LAND FOREVER My answer to the problem is DECLARE INDIA --- A HINDU COUNTRY DECLARE SPAIN A CATHOLIC COUNTRY and DECLARE ISRAEL A JEWISH COUNTRY ----and grant muslims the same rights therein that hindus, catholics and jews enjoy in Saudi arabia and THEN SEE WHAT HAPPENS

    Islam and Shariah Law forbids a Muslim to coexist equally with non-Muslims. That is why Islam is a cancer upon modern civilization.

    Last time I checked this was the Israel & Palestine board. It stands to reason that at least some here care about a solution to the conflict even if only for humanitarian reasons.
    So why are you here?

    The hope, IMHO, is that the Arab/Muslim World can escape from the pathologies which put them at odds with the infidels. Perhaps the Arab-Israeli conflict and pragmatism will be catalysts in the moderating of Islamist culture.
