There’s a name for trying the same thing over and over again and expecting different result, thanks to Albert Einstein. It’s called insanity.And sadly, we’re once again witnessing the Israeli government doing just that. Israel badly needs to face reality
Anyone who still thinks there’s any life in the so called ‘peace process’ and the so-called ‘two state solution’ is playing this game and wearing blinders.
First, this nonsense has been tried several times with absolutely no success. This was what Oslo was supposed to be all about, remember? And remember how it turned out, with a terrorist squat in Judea and Samaria and one in Gaza? Exactly.
If we look at the facts, there have been several times when the Arabs who refer to themselves as ‘Palestinians’ have been offered peace deals…at one time, three different Israeli left wing prime ministers offered the Palestinian Authority ninety-five, and then ninety-six percent of the “occupied” territories. And the ‘Palestinians; refused, just as they’re refusing now. I wonder why….wait, of course it’s an easy one to figure out…this is what they really want:
Why yes! What they want isn’t peace. They want no Israel to exist at all. How hard is that to figure out? OK, it’s obvious They never intended at all to live in peace with the Jews. After all, they have never kept a single part of any agreement they’ve signed and have actively promoted terrorism in their mosques, media and schools. Abbas habitually refers to imprisoned terrorists as ‘holy martyrs’ for deliberately targeting and killing Jews and Palestinian media actually encourages this…and then of course there’s the money you get whether your killed or just thrown in jail, $500 and up depending on how many Jews you killed. It’s a nice income by Palestinian standards.
Oslo, of course was a product of Bill Clinton, who had Arafat to the White House more than any other foreign leader.Since Labor leader Yizhak Rabin owed President Clinton for some clandestine aid in getting him elected Prime Minister, Oslo was a done deal, a terrorist enemy right next door to Israel that resulted in zero peace and a lot of dead and maimed Jews.
And guess what? Nothing, I mean nothing has changed. It wasn’t so long ago that PLO leader Jibril Rajoub said openly that “If we had a nuclear weapon I’d use it on Israel tomorrow.” This is the same terrorist who the Israelis actually gave medical care to. They also gave Medical care to Abbas and to his wife. Can you imagine doing this for someone who hates you with all his heart and wants to exterminate you?
And the irony of it is that it could have been done years ago.
In the Six Day War, Jordan attacked Israel. The IDF pushed the Jordanian troops back across the river. At that time, they could easily have sent the ‘Palestinians’ who all had Jordanian citizenship back across the Jordan River as well, and this entire mess would have been avoided. However, Israel’s Labor government made a mess of things. They made the mistake of thinking these Arabs would be able to live in peace with them, and it turned out to be a huge mistake.
The Israelis built virtually the entire infrastructure in Judea and Samaria….the power grid, the water systems, schools, houses, roads, sewage, irrigation,hospitals, even a university. Their reward of course was that first Intifada. They definitely should have seen that coming.
The way to finally solve this problem is to do what should have been down back in 1967. Simply move the Arabs who call themselves ‘Palestinians’ across the river, perhaps with cash settlements for people who can actually prove they purchased and own property. This is certainly more than the Arabs gave the almost one million Jews they ethnically cleansed from the Arab world after 1948. They plundered them for everything they had and these Jews left with the clothes on their backs.
Jordan of course would not like this but there’s not much they could do about it, especially since they have already agreed to abandon all claim to Judea and Samaria. Jordan’s midget King Abdullah would also be upset because many of these people tend to cause problems where ever they go…Iraq, Kuwait,Lebanon, Egypt and yes, Jordan, which Arafat almost took over in 1970’s Black September.
