The Failure of the Palestinian Venture

MIDEAST ISRAEL PALESTINIANS

12. During the year 2011, since the beginning of the “Arab Spring”, the Arab world has neglected the Palestinian problem, because the events in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Yemen and Syria have taken over the newspapers and the TV and computer screens. The Arab World has turned its back on the Palestinians and their problems, and has removed them from the public agenda. This is the real reason that the Palestinians turned to the UN last September for recognition as a state. And the continual development of events in Egypt and Syria that dominate the Arab media push the PLO again to search for their friends in the corridors of the international arena, in places where there isn’t even the slightest understanding of the culture of the Middle East and the problems that it causes to modern illegitimate entities that are known as [Arab] states. There exists in the world, and even in Israel here and there, the hope that if only the Palestinians will get their state, they will accept Israel as a legitimate state with the right to exist in peace and security, Hamas will sit together with the PLO around the campfire and will sing the Palestinian hymn harmoniously, and the sons of Hebron will take wives from the daughters of Nablus. No one is willing to address the question: What will the world do when the Palestinian state, with a territorial contiguity in Judea and Samaria turns into a Hamas state? It’s interesting that those Israeli bleeding hearts who naively hope for peace despite the discouraging past, seem to have had enough, and don’t deal with this question either.

There is a conclusion to be drawn from all of the above. The Palestinian national project was supposed to create a Palestinian people on which to base the establishment of a Palestinian state. This has resulted in total failure. Therefore, Israel and the world must search for a different solution, for example the eight-state solution that was presented on this stage in the past, and which is based on the establishment of eight Arab city-states: one in Gaza which already exists, and has been alive and kicking for almost five years, and another seven in each of the Arab cities in Judea and Samaria: Jenin, Nablus, Tulkarem, Qalqilya, Ramallah, Jericho and the Arab section of Hebron. Israel must remain forever in the rural expanses in order to assure that the hills of Judea and Samaria will not turn into the hills of Hamas. And just as the Arab residents of Jerusalem have Israeli citizenship – and according to many public opinion polls, prefer to live under Israeli control than under any alternative Arab control – Israel should offer Israeli citizenship to the Arab residents of the villages of Judea and Samaria as well.

The world must wake up and recognize the reality, read the “Alfatiha” – the first chapter of the Qur’an, which is similar to the Jewish “Kaddish” and the Christian “Requiem” – over the Palestinian Authority, and to send its corrupt Tunisians back to the place from where they were brought by Rabin (may he rest in peace) and Peres (he should live and be well), who were deceived by fellow Nobel prize winner, the great murderer and consummate liar, Yaser Arafat. They thought that he will take care of Hamas for them without the High Court or human rights groups, but what is actually happening is that Hamas is taking care of the PLO (Gaza, since June, 2007) and takes care of us too, in Sderot, Ashkelon and the area surrounding Gaza, without the High Court or human rights groups, but with Goldstone and the perennial bias of the UN and most of the rest of the world.

The dismantling of the Palestinian Authority into eight Arab city-states is a necessary condition for Israel to thrive, and therefore Israel and the world must accept Abu Mazen’s threat to quit with a blessing.
