Title

WHAT DO MUSLIMS REALLY THINK ABOUT ISRAEL?

Publication Date

4-2010

Abstract

Muslim realism, featuring a pragmatic, pluralistic approach to Israel as a member of the community of nations, has resulted in direct, bilateral treaties with a number of Muslim-majority states. These developments are grounded not only in realpolitik but in Islamic law and statecraft, and many moderate Muslims have voiced their support of Israel's existence. The Palestinian Authority must summon the political will to bring the Islamic Waqf officials under control and to repudiate Salafi claims over Jerusalem. With the vital support of Saudi Arabia and Jordan, the Palestinians and Israelis may be able to establish order and justice in their lands.
