Call for Genocide

The Palestinian people have had their lands taken from them, and have been herded onto reservations; they are fenced in and their movements are carefully constrained. Not to put too fine a point upon it, but they have been defeated.

So how much more can Israel defeat them? I don't know, but I find myself pondering that question as I read Ben Shapiro's latest article.
So far, Israel and America have willfully blinded themselves to the harsh reality of popular evil. They have refused to come to terms with the harsh fact that collective choices require collective treatment.

Treating collective problems as problems of individuals is a vacuous panacea. Waiting for Arafat to die of old age did not moderate the Palestinian Arabs; supporting one radical over another will not moderate them, either. The Palestinian Arab population breeds terrorism, anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism. If Israel and America refuse to recognize that simple truth, they will continue to pay the price in blood and treasure.
What does collective treatment of the Palestinian people require? How much more can we punish the Palestinian people?

If course if there are no Palestinian people, there will be no Palestinian problem, I suppose.
