Israel gets new administration, new initiative towards correcting distorted portrayals of the Arab-Israeli conflict

The inauguration of Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud-led coalition government brings a long-needed corrective lens onto the jaundiced mainstream-media view of the global Jihad.  Israel's new Foreign Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, has announced the new government's strategy of putting the onus of progress on the Arabs' fulfilling their long-unfulfilled obligations toward peace - before Israel makes any further concessions.

Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch features Melanie Phillips' The Spectator article,"The Essential History" - which references Victor Sharpe's American Thinker article delineating how there already is a 'two-state solution.'
Melanie Phillips quotes extensively from "The Two - State Solution is 87 Years Old," an article by Victor Sharpe in the American Thinker, March 29. It is a superb and important piece, as she says, detailing Britain's long record of betrayals of the Jewish people and appeasement of Arab demands -- and even now, jihadist demands grow ever more shrill, and Western politicians prepare to betray Israel yet again in another round of appeasement, with Obama and company acting as if the "two-state solution" has never yet been tried, when it is the only thing that has ever been tried.

Phillips concludes:

It is only if the true history of the Middle East is understood that certain things become inescapably clear: the scale of the monumental lie that has been so assiduously promulgated about the nature of this dispute, a lie which is now generally assumed in the west to be true and which is driving the genocidal hysteria against Israel; the fact that the fundamental cause of this tragic impasse was the repeated British appeasement of Arab terror, illegality and injustice, a policy which continues to this very day; and the immorality and absurdity therefore of believing that today's ‘two-state solution’ – which among other things means that the ‘progressives’ who support it thus support the ethnic cleansing of all Jews from the putative state of Palestine – would be anything other than a Final Solution for the Jews of Israel, not to mention an incalculable victory for the forces waging war against the free world.
In a rare moment on Al Jazeera Arabic TV, Algerian author Anwar Malek exposed those forces:
The reality of the Arabs is one of defeat, hitting rock bottom... We are defeated, politically and militarily... and economically, socially, and even psychologically. We have a discourse of conspiracy, and we blame everything on others. (Watch on MemriTV via courtesy of Israel Matsav).
