Plus Ça Change, Plus C’est la Même Chose

There is a well-known French saying: “Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose,” meaning “The more things change, the more they remain the same.” This is certainly true in regard to the so-called “peace process.” In April of 2001 – before the terrible events of September 11 – I wrote an article titled “Do the Palestinians Deserve a State?

Except for changing “Yasir Arafat” to “Hamas,” every single word in the article is as true today as it was thirteen years ago, despite all the well-meaning efforts of countless clueless diplomats and naïve do-gooders.

You can read the article here and judge for yourself.

    SHARON FRIED, it’s not up to the Israel government; Hamas simply wants to see the eradication of Israel and all Jews. Israel’s government thankfully will not accept that.


    Thank you, Naomi, for re-posting this article that was true when you wrote it and still holds true today. It’s all up to the Israeli government to make better decisions in order to put a stop once and for all to the repeated cycle of terror based on fanatic hate, lies and violence that is now rapidly spreading across the globe.
