The Israeli/Palestinian problem can be easily solved, because the solution is very simple.
Unless Israel wants to become an internationally recognized Apartheid state shunned by the whole world, a just and equitable solution needs to be worked out. A solution that shelves the idea of two countries living side by side, because the facts on the ground dictate otherwise.
Israelis are living all over the territories earmarked for a Palestinian state. And since the Israelis don’t want to give up one inch of these occupied territories, the only solution left is One Country.
But there’s a twist.
It would be a federation of 5 states: Israel, West Bank (Judea and Samaria), Gaza, Galilee, and Negev, with Jerusalem as the country’s Capital, and Palestine as the Federation’s name – a name that’s been around since the time of Christ, if not as far back as the time of the Philistines.
The Golan Heights and Shebaa Farms would be returned respectively to Syria and Lebanon in exchange for a fair and comprehensive peace.
Each of the 5 states would have enough autonomy to create a system of checks and balances. In turn, this would spawn an economic environment which would allow each state to compete with each other, while avoiding possible future conflicts by making it more difficult to go to war unless all 5 states are in agreement. A certain divide and conquer for the benefit of all the inhabitants of the land.
In such a country anyone could live anywhere in the 5 states. Palestinians – including returning refugees – would have equal rights, and would be allowed to settle wherever they wish, just like Israelis. Refugee resettlement would have to be organized in such a way so as to prevent chaos, with most refugees settling in Galilee and Negev where it’s less populated.
Jews around the world would no longer be immediate birthright citizens of the new state. However, if any Jewish person can prove that they’re being persecuted, they can apply for citizenship in any of the country’s embassies around the world, where they would be provided safe haven. The same treatment would be available to Palestinians living abroad.
This solution would lead to: One Country – One Person – One Vote.
It is a possibility that only men of good will can achieve. But with Israel’s current leaders such a plan is nothing but a pipe dream, at best.
The problem is the intransigence of Israel’s Ashkenazic leaders. They refuse co-existence with their Palestinian neighbors because the whole conflict is about their thirst for land. A land without Arabs. (To comprehend the Ashkenazim’s obsession with land, you must understand their origin and history by clicking here.)
Putting aside for a moment that Jews have absolutely no divine right to the entire land of Palestine as they claim they do, one would think that because of the many similarities Jews have with Muslims, such as circumcision and the like, that these leaders would agree to a peaceful settlement. But they don’t want to. And that’s because it’s not about faith or about God’s promise some 4000 years ago to Abraham. It’s about land. They want the whole enchilada. The whole pie. They want Greater Israel. Itself another pipe dream.
It’s an obsession these leaders have successfully inculcated in their fellow coreligionists. And that obsession has turned an entire people toward a malignant racism which has morphed into an Apartheid system worse than the one that took shape in South Africa. So much so that the whole country is openly talking about the genocide of the Palestinians living among them, mistreating them, killing them, and bombing them at will in the hope they will leave the land in disgust.
If you’re having difficulty grasping such hatred maybe this quote can help:
“Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves.” Menahem Begin, 6th Prime Minister of Israel. speech to the Knesset (24 June 1982), quoted in “Begin and the Beasts” Amnon Kapeliouk, in The New Statesman (25 June 1982)
Most Israelis seem unfazed by this endless conflict with their neighbors. That’s because war has yet to seriously reach Israel proper. Once it does there is no going back. That’s why the time is fast approaching when they need to concede to living in harmony. Even God commands it:
“If a stranger lives as a foreigner with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. The stranger who lives as a foreigner with you shall be to you as the native-born among you, and you shall love him as yourself… I am Yahweh your God.” Leviticus 19:33-34
Appeal: Every conscientious individual should implement a personal boycott of Israel and everything made there.
