While I was disappointed that I didn't get to hear him speak at Columbia, Atlas Shrugs did a great job capturing video and audio from the event. Walid Shoebat, former PLO terrorist and current supporter of Israel, gave one of the most powerful talks you will hear on the jihad against Jews, Christians and Americans.

Most valuable to infidels is his explanation of the Islamic concept of hudna. Do our leaders and journalists know what this term means? An understanding of the concept and its application in Islam illustrates the uselessness of "peace process" and "road map" and negotiating a "two-state solution." No "peace process" or "negotiated solution" can bring a lasting peace if the Islamic side sees it as merely a temporary break in hostilities until it is strong enough to return to the battlefield with confidence in its military might. That is why right after signing the Oslo Accords on the White House lawn committing the PLO to pursue peace and renounce terror, Yasser Arafat spoke in Arabic about the accords being a hudna. When will the naive Israelis and their idealistic American friends learn that you can't force peace or an independent state, no matter how much you give away or how nice and rational you are, upon a people committed to jihad.

Mr. Shoebat also compared the education and indoctrination of Palestinian children to that of Nazi Germany, telling his audience about the anti-Jewish influences in every aspect of Palestinian Arab society. Even more enlightening was the admission that all the major Palestinian families, no matter how anti-Jewish they may have been, sold land at exorbitant prices to Jews, whom they would later claim stole "Arab land."

Does Condi Rice know any of this as she presses for the creation of a Palestinian state that would not serve the interests of the US, Israel or the greater Middle East?
