Arabs Partners against Obama-Kerry ‘Land Swap’ Idea

There’s nothing stranger than politics. You must have heard the line about “strange bedfellows.”

Politics makes strange bedfellows

Finally I agree with something super far Left and even anti-Israel to my mind Arab Deputy Speaker of the Knesset, MK Dr. Ahmed Tibi, founder of the Arab Movement for Change Party, Ta’al said:

”This is a bizarre proposal which relates to Arab citizens as chess pieces that can be moved and changed.”

I’ve been saying the same thing! All you have to do is substitute “Jewish” for “Arab,” and you see that we agree 100%. I’ve also written that there’s no real sign that Israeli Arabs want to live under PA rule. I’ve been working with Arabs in Yafiz, Sha’ar Binyamin for three years now, and I’ve gotten to know fellow workers from my store and Rami Levy. I’ve also had many conversations with Arab customers. And I have no doubt that most Arabs, even those who are now living under PA rule would prefer living under Israeli Law.

Take a man like Tibi. From all he says, you’d think him as one who would have joined the PA-Palestinian Authority a long time ago. You’d think that someone with so many complaints about the State of Israel would have declared himself a citizen of the “State of Palestine,”and joined the fray in fighting his fellow Arabs for power. But he hasn’t!

Push comes to shove, and Kerry is pushing and shoving, Tibi prefers being an Israeli. And I have no doubt that most Arabs feel 100% the same. They know perfectly well which Middle East administration is fairest to its citizens and residents. They know which state offers the best medical care, infrastructure and modern technology.

The only problem is that the Arabs are terrified to voice the truth. They, too, live in fear of Arab terrorists who prefer anarchy over law and civil rights. The Arab terrorists are emboldened by the discussions of more power and money. They won’t obey any government; that includes Arabs called “Palestinians.” The ordinary Arab does not want that sort of change. They don’t want a “Two state solution.” They don’t want any creative Livni, Obama or Kerry ideas.

The only solution that would bring peace, true peace is for Israel to Annex, rule all of the Land we now hold and administer. We must achieve true sovereignty and that will give us true peace. It’s dangerous for Tibi to say so, but he has all but admitted it in his opposition to a land-swap.

Chodesh Tov and Shabbat Shalom.

  1. Guy Peters says:

    Does that mean Kerry’s wealthy wife is going to swap land for Arabs ?

  2. Of course they would Israel has a thriving economy and a better way of life.

  3. Myriam Obadia says:

    I agree with the author of this article. The negotiations have already proven useless. Let's cut everybody's losses and go back to the only logical partition of "Palestine" the one done in 1922 by the League of Nations and which follows the Jordan River, only natural frontier between Jewish Palestine (Israel) and Arab Palestine (Jordan). Our government needs to annex all of Judea-Samaria and the Arabs who live there, as well as in the rest of Israel, should be given the choice: remain in Israel as loyal citizens, or leave for Jordan. If Pr. Obama and his peripatetic Secretary of State want to be useful, they should take up negotiating with the Hashemite king to allow all Palestinian Arabs who so desire to go home to Jordan to do so. Quite frankly, if I were Arab-Israeli, I'd find the "exchange" suggestion really humiliating. The grandchildren of those Arabs who refused to flee their home on the promises from foreign Arab kings and dictators and stayed the course as Israeli citizens, shouldn't be treated as if they were cattle and bartered on the market: they are human being and Israeli citizens. If they wanted to live in "Palestine" they'd have moved to Jordan or Gaza long ago.

  4. yes this is true, i know of an israeli arab who went on haj and met many many arabs from all around the middle east. upon hearing where he was from, the reaction isnt what one would think. he was told over and over again how lucky he was to live in a place where there was free medical and pensions and law and order and good jobs and education. all told him they wished they lived there too. really, where is it better ? syria ? yemen ? egypt ?

    even the arabs cannot stand their leadership. rotflmao

  6. Kerry needs to find a job and leave Israel alone.

  7. Anonymous says:

    Rabbi Kahane said, "you can't buy an Arab." Perhaps the premise of this article is correct. Then the Arabs who feel this way need to take to the streets and show the world. Otherwise when push comes to shove, they can't be trusted.
