David Horowitz in Beverly Hills: ‘Crush the Arabs Militarily’

See the full report, with photos, at American Power: “David Horowitz at ‘Securing America’s Future’ in Beverly Hills.”

An excerpt:

While I was impressed with both Cliff May and Mona Charen — and I was thrilled at the chance to see them speak — the night truly belonged to David Horowitz. During the audience question time, one attendee — sitting in the front row a few seats to the left of me — asked about Israel’s security, that by defending the country by force didn’t Israel “risk World War III?” This question really animated David Horowitz, and he came back again to the issue of political willpower. He said the it wasn’t just the PA or Hamas that rejected Israel’s right to resist, but the Palestinians themselves. They’d been trying to drive the Jews into the sea since the 1920s. Current efforts at “peace” were thus systematically doomed to fail since there is no support among Palestinians for the preservation of the Israeli state. Whenever Israel had made concessions to the peace process the security situation has deteriorated. What the Palestinians would understand is hard power. Israel should have “carpet bombed” Gaza after the rockets started raining down on schoolyards in Sderot after the 2005 Israeli withdrawal. Until the Israel government is willing to “crush” the Arabs militarily there will never be any movement toward lasting peace.

As always, more great blogging at American Power.
