US Kosovo Policy Is Bad for Israel

and | November 6, 2007

The creation a new state in Kosovo awards part of a nation’s territory to a violent ethno-religious minority; futilely hopes to curry favor with the Islamic world through appeasement; gives a fresh impetus to the ongoing growth of Islamic influence in Europe; and denies the fact that the state’s leaders are tainted by terrorism, criminality, and links with global jihad. Most importantly, it betrays a post-modern contempt for claims based on the historical rights of a land to a nation. American support for the independence of Kosovo is thus detrimental to Israeli interests.
