Netanyahu’s ‘Jews in Palestine’ Ploy Traps Bennett, Abbas and AP

No one seems to remember that Netanyahu once won a stalemate with chess master Natan Sharansky.
Netanyahu checkmated almost everyone with the "leak" that Jews could live in a Palestinian state.

Netanyahu checkmated almost everyone with the "leak" that Jews could live in a Palestinian state.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s reported “Let some Jewish settlers remain in Palestine” statement has made Mahmoud Abbas look like fool, Naftali Bennett look like a right-wing nut, and the media look almost as ignorant as they are – and all of this with one sentence.

“Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will insist that Jewish settlers in the West Bank have a right to remain under Palestinian rule in any future peace deal, a government official was quoted as saying on Sunday,” Reuters told millions of readers around the world.

The very thought of the Palestinian Authority as an independent country inside Israel’s current borders, let alone hinting that Jews living in Judea and Samaria can fulfill their Zionist dream by living in a Palestinian state, was TNT for Naftali Bennett, chairman of the Jewish Home party and arguably one of the most positive images in Israeli politics.

Part of Bennett’s success is that while he is gung-ho on Jews in Judea and Samaria, he is a resident of Ra’anana, part of metropolitan Tel Aviv. Moreover, he is not from the “think in the box” folks of Yesha, otherwise known as the Council of Jewish Communities in Judea and Samaria, which once upon a time included the word “Gaza” in its moniker.

Yesha miserably failed nationalists during the years of Oslo, when it raised the Israeli flag over Beit El as the capital of the country, with Tel Aviv, Haifa and Be’er Sheva being considered settlements that deserve a few crumbs to keep them in Greater Israel, the term nationalists try to use to counter the dreaded “Occupied Territories.”

Bennett blew it Sunday night.

He sounded like one of the Yesha blowhards from years ago when he angrily responded, “”Whoever imagines that Jews in the land of Israel can live under Palestinian rule undermines our living in Tel Aviv.”

Saeb Erekat, the senior Palestinian Authority negotiator who has quit or has threatened to quit the position more times than U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has visited Israel, also rejected Netanyahu’s idea. “Anyone who says he wants to keep settlers in the Palestinian state is actually saying that he doesn’t want a Palestinian state,” Erekat said.

“No settler will be allowed to stay in the Palestinian state, not even a single one, because settlements are illegal and the presence of the settlers on the occupied lands is illegal,” he added.

And the Associated Press, in its continuing ineptly objective ignorance of trying to explain the Middle East to the world, declared for history, “Some Israeli political commentators suggested the leak [Netanyahu’s reported statement] was aimed at heading off settler opposition to a framework deal, or as guidelines for a final peace agreement that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has been trying to formulate.”

Boy, are they ever off the track!

Netanyahu should take off for a well-deserved vacation and enjoy his political checkmate. During one election campaign, Netanyahu once played chess with Natan Sharansky, an accomplished chess master. Former Soviet Union dissidents have to be great at chess. That is one of the ways they survived Siberia and came out sane.

Netanyahu won a stalemate, an amazing achievement.

For all of Mahmoud Abba’s brilliant political maneuvering around the world to win universal support to screw the Jews, he is no match for Netanyahu.

The Prime Minister already has cornered Abbas pitifully by goading him to recognize Israel as a Jewish State. The theory is that once the Palestinian Authority does so, it has no chance of flooding Israel with 5 million foreign Arabs under the lie of the “right of return,” a bastardization of the Israeli term that should go down as one of the greatest Double Speaks since George Orwell’s” 1984.”

  1. Barbara Hirsch says:

    Excellent article. And I agree. Netanyahu performed brilliantly. There is a reason he is Prime Minister of Israel. We must not forget.

  2. awesome move – what Israel REALLY needs to do is to ”end the occupation” by annexing the land theh won in 1967, and make a binational state with a constitution guaranteeing freedom of religion (not just the British style status quo system they have now), and make any peaceful Palestinians into Israeli Arab citizens, while convicting or expelling all terrorists

  3. The State of Israel must explain to all nations that God gave to Israel all the Land of Canaan, which includes all the Palestine, as it is written in the Bible, in Genesis 12:6-7, 15:13-21, 17:1-8, 17:19, 26:1-5, 28:10-14 and 35:9-12 and Numbers 34:13-29 and Deuteronomy 3:8, and that Israel possessed that land since the year 1466 BCE, and that the Arabs invaded the Land of Israel (Palestine) in the year 635 CE, so that all the Palestine belongs to Israel, including the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, and the Arabs are invaders.
    The State of Israel must not make pact with the Palestinians, because it is written in the Torah, in Exodus 23:32 and 34:12 and Deuteronomy 7:2 that God commanded Israel not to make pact with the inhabitants of the Land of Canaan, that is the Land of Israel, also called "Palestine", and it is written in the Torah, in Numbers 33:50-53 and Deuteronomy 1:8 and 30:5, that God commanded Israel to possess all the Land of Canaan, that is the Land of Israel, also called “Palestine”. Therefore, the peace talks with the Palestinians must cease immediately.

  4. I have been saying this for years. Let the "settlers" (Jews) stay in the Palestinian State – with full citizenship rights. The same way that the Arabs stay in Israel. As long as the Arabs insist on Judenfrei Palestine, we know they are not serious about peace.

  5. Ronny Mol says:

    Dear Mr. Gedalyahu, Bibi did NOT make a political checkmate. Unless you know that backroom deals that Kerry is making, this leftist grap of elminating more land to the fake palestinians is the latest in their attempts to take Jew out of Israel. I say let all the confirmed leftists and Israeli Arabs live in Gaza. Gaza unfortunately is the fake palestinian state. By the way, a terrorist has no rights in the US but in Israel, the leftist Jews make him/her a hero. Unbelievable. We are living in the times of the evil King Manashe/Bibi.

  6. The whole Peace Process is a pure waste of time because God who gave all of the Land to his people the Jews will give it all back to them soon, anyway.It doesn't matter what the Palestinian/Arabs think or do its a done deal with the creator of the World.

  8. The focus is that Israel and the world should not attempt to take God's land as part of a peace deal. The specifics of a deal that agrees to give up God’s land is sinful. Don't get side tracked by other pieces of a peace plan that are flawed at it's very core. Focus on the core problem here. Don't give up the land of God! God has not changed; He is the same as he has always been. From the day that he gave this land to Abraham until now, He is the same. In recent decades there have been many attacks followed by a time of settling and then renewed trouble and more attacks. Today we see this same scenario but with greater weapons involved and with less time settling in between attacks with more and more troubles mounting. There are even terroristic attacks within the settling periods. We see the Muslim nations getting closer to Moscow as time goes and Iran gaining more military sway in the region. This looks to be setting up the national alignment of the attack made in EZ 38 that takes place in the middle of the tribulation period. I believe that the rapture/departure of the Christian church is to take place very soon and that the war in Isaiah 17 will take place with Damascus being destroyed overnight. An evil peace deal will be made for 7/360 day years, between Israel, the Arabs and a person who will head the one world government. That man will be the anti-Christ. I wrote a book in 2012 that discusses some of the prophecies written about in the Bible. It’s a short read of 6 or 7 pages and it’s totally free. I hope you will have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next

  9. I don't understand, why Netanyahu said that, he recognise a Palestiian State, he is crazy, Palestina doesn't exists, becouse is not a State, no democracy, no goverment thaey are gang of terrorists, thiefs and liers, they should go to their native countries like the Jews (Israelites, Hebrews) did to go bag to his native land wich is now the State of Israel.

  10. And we know they are NOT serious about peace

  11. so if the Jews stay in under palestianian rule would that mean they would have to convert to Islam and as Islam mentions to kill anyone who is an infidel, what would be the fate of those Jews?

  12. Stella Webby says:

    The PM has put bait in the waters to reveal the Sharks!

  13. …at the end of each of his speeches Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu
    should say or at least add the following comment: 'all that I spoke has to do with fiction and not with real life or any character in real life'… <3

  14. Georga Collins : Indeed, we do

  15. Lol….just read the comments again…and you said exactly the same thing…so we agree exactly. Bibi said that to Kerry. It's obvious and yet the "world" keeps pushing Israel to make peace. I watched Bibi on piers Morgan, the only time I ever watched that "show"….and Morgan was pushing Bibi into "being that guy" who brings peace. As far as I'm concerned Israel has done enough already. I love Israel. Thank God I got to visit her….I didn't want to leave.

  16. Huh? I though you were "anti-Zionist". Nice turn-over.

  17. And FYI this isn't a good thing either. Eventually one way or another the Arabs MUST GO!

  18. the arab goym have even more right to live in eretz yisroel than the non-religious wanna do as if yidden. all this struggle will come to an end when the "hazier" trefe mdeinat yisroel will "hoser" to the Torah. then there will be no strife anymore
