Jerusalem Summit-2003:
The War of Islam against Minorities in the Middle East. The Religious Core of the Civilizational Clash
Inasmuch as Islam as a supercessionary religion is committed to world conquest, with previous monotheistic faiths submerged within and under it, then no room exists for permanent co-existence among Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Islam triumphant is the slogan of a universal religion bent on confrontation and competition, de-legitimizing and transcending Judaism and Christianity, no less Hinduism and Buddhism, and leading ineluctably to total victory. This civilizational clash is like no other that mankind has known or that the twentieth-century, engulfed in wars and ideological struggles, had ever experienced.

Jerusalem Summit-2003:
A Palestinian State west of the Jordan River: Its Dangerous Dynamic
I feel there will never be a Palestinian state. We must reject a Palestinian state for these reasons: 1. Anthropology & culture: Arafat is a tribe’s shaman, the shahids are preserving the isolation of the tribe and therefore cannot consider any other ideology, because they’d be swamped by the outside world. 2. Egypt founded PLO in 1964 to serve wide Arab Islamic interests in the Middle East. 3. Political experience: the Stages of the 1974 plan – a state was proposed when Palestinians were weak and feared the world would force them to accommodate themselves. 4. Experience: They’ve proved themselves to be a destructive force in Jordan in 67, in Lebanon in 78, in Israel in 93-4. According to Prof. Huntington (Clash of Civilizations), Muslims have no political capital. If Israel loses Jerusalem, it will become the world capital of the Muslim World – a political capital… Abraham=righteousness, Isaac =Strength, Jacob = Truth, but the most importance lesson comes from Sarah: if two brothers fight, send one into the desert!
