Rep. Cantor: Only Palestinian “Mind-Shift” Will Bring Peace


cantorPeace will only emerge when the Palestinians and the Arab world go through a “cultural mind-shift” and accept Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state, visiting U.S. House Majority leader Eric Cantor said on Wednesday. “Until that point comes, I don’t think that there will be much progress.” Cantor is leading a group of 28 Republican congressmen on a one-week tour sponsored by an affiliate of AIPAC, which brought 36 Democratic congressmen to the country last week.

Cantor said that the “discussion of territory, lines, towns and settlements is predicated upon the Palestinians first agreeing” that Israel has the legitimate right to exist as a Jewish state.

Cantor is the first cousin of Sheryl Wultz, whose son Daniel, 16, was killed in a terrorist attack in Tel Aviv in 2006.

  1. never going to happen as long the US president tells you can get what ever you like with out recignation of ISRAEL and that the land belongs to the jewish people

  2. Muslims will accept the rights of Jews to the Erets Yisroel when we accept the Muslim’s right to Yirushalayim, which is to say never.
    But we can arrive at a realistic arrangement that both sides prefer over war, without settling who is right. That is all that we can expect and what we should strive for
