As long as the Muslim Arabs believe that they have a chance (no matter how far fetched) in destroying the Jewish state, they will continue on with their dirty terrorist war.
What happens when a new emboldened Palestinian government continues calls for the liberation of the “rest of Palestine”?
My question dressed in a dilemma is: “How can you expect Hamas, a terror organization created to eradicate the Jewish state, to recognize Israel as Jewish state, thereby de-legitimizing their very own existence?”
The False Premise of Palestine and Peace
- This should be Israel’s basic demand: that a united Palestinian political leadership will recognize the right of all the citizens of the Jewish State of Israel to live in peace and security, alongside the State of Palestine.
- It is that simple. That is all it takes.
The notion that the creation of a state of Palestine will herald everlasting peace is naïve in the extreme.
After 50 years of a two-state failure, the French and other diplomats, in their duplicitously-named “peace initiative,” have no other idea for how to settle the Palestinian problem, except to behave like parched men trudging across a burning desert toward a distant mirage that they think is an oasis paradise. It is not, and the same diplomats will take no responsibility for cleaning up the dangerous outcome of such a disaster.
The international community is pressuring Israel to make wholesale concessions in territory and security, risking social and political upheaval, to grant the so-called Palestinians a state of their own.
The sole criterion for making this happen is for the international community to accept the Palestinian precondition of forcing Israel withdraw to pre-1967 lines, which are the 1949 armistice lines and not a defined border.
Whenever I approach a European diplomat with the following questions, none of them can give me an answer:
1) What happens when a new emboldened Palestinian government continues calls for the liberation of the “rest of Palestine”?
They call Haifa, Acre, Jaffa and the Galilee — in fact, all of Israel — “occupied Palestinian land”. Just look at any Palestinian map: it is identical to Israel.
It is little known that members of the Palestinian Authority call Israeli Arabs “Palestinians of the Interior.”
They also call Israeli Arabs the “Palestinians of ’48.” They have been joined in this by Arab Knesset Members, who also would not object to the eventual displacement of Jews by Arabs in Israel.
According to their ambition, these Israeli Arabs will be “liberated” by a new Palestine.
