The ‘Two-State Solution’: Dream or Nightmare?

We keep hearing these fantasies which claim that there's a safe and just way to divide up Judea and Samaria between Jews and Arabs, which is preposterous.

A “mantra” is supposed to be more like meaningless sounds to repeat as we tune out:

1. Hinduism A sacred verbal formula repeated in prayer, meditation, or incantation, such as an invocation of a god, a magic spell, or a syllable or portion of scripture containing mystical potentialities. 2. A commonly repeated word or phrase.

I sometimes refer to the phrase “two state solution” as a nightmare mostly because too many politicians, diplomats, academics and of course the media keep touting it as a “solution to the conflict between the Jews and the Arabs” without truly thinking about what it means and how it would affect the lives of Israelis and the security of the State of Israel.

The State of Israel and the Arabs aren’t two toddlers fighting over some blocks which can be harmlessly shared.

There are many Arab states, large and affluent, stable, unstable and most do not practice western-style values and democracy.  UNESCO identifies 21 Arab states, while Wikipedia lists 23 Arab states. In addition the Arab League is a regional organization of these states that was formed in 1945. It currently has 22 members.

The touted “moderate” Arabs promoted by the west, i.e., the United States, Europe and international organizations, such as the United Nations, aren’t moderate by international standards.  The so-called Palestinians don’t even get along with each other, and it’s dangerously unrealistic to think that they are capable of governing a state. We keep hearing these fantasies which claim that there’s a safe and just way to divide up Judea and Samaria between Jews and Arabs, which is preposterous.  I grew up in the 1960′s, and I remember what went on in divided Germany, especially Berlin.  These things just don’t work.  And please remember that the raison d’être of the so called Palestinians is the destruction of the State of Israel.

From a Palestinian Media Watch report:

The PA promises its people that in the future, the State of Israel will be completely erased and replaced by a State of Palestine. A Fatah member of Palestinian parliament, Najat Abu Bakr, told PA TV that the PA supports and adopts the “stages plan.” To the world, the PA claims that the Palestinians seek the West Bank and Gaza Strip, when in fact the goal is all of Israel: “It doesn’t mean that we don’t want the 1948 borders, but in our current political program we say we want a state on the 1967 borders.” [PA TV (Fatah), Aug. 25, 2008]Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki reiterated this position on Al-Jazeera TV:

“It is impossible to realize the inspiring idea or the great goal in one stroke… Israel will come to an end… If I say that I want to remove it from existence, this will be great, great, [but] it is hard. This is not a [stated] policy. You can’t say it to the world. You can say it to yourself.” [Al-Jazeera TV, Sept. 23, 2011]

This is very worrying, especially since Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has bought into the lie and has now appointed extreme Leftist Tzipi Livni to negotiate with the Arabs.

Already the Israeli Supreme Court and the Defense Ministry take “Arab rights” as more important than Jewish security.

The Head of Central Command in the IDF, Maj. Gen. Nitzan Alon, gave orders at week’s end to dismantle the fences protecting two Jewish communities, following the High Court’s ruling in the matter. The High Court found that the fences that surround and protect the communities of Ofra and Adam, in the Binyamin region, need to be dismantled because they prevent access to some Arabs’ agricultural plots. The fences were allegedly built without the necessary approvals. (Arutz Sheva).

This is a dangerous policy.  And that’s why I would have had preferred new elections and no coalition here in Israel.
