Israeli/Palestinian Conflict Netanyahu


Bibi is one of the few articulate Israeli leaders who gets it. The Arab war against Israel is due to their undying hatred towards the Jews for daring to declare themselves an equal Jewish nation in the heart of the Islamic world. If not for Islamic supremacy and the anti-Semitism that goes along with it, their war against the Jews wouldn’t exist, thanks to TINSC for originally pointing that out to me decades ago. KGS

Netanyahu: Abbas must say he accepts ‘the Jewish state’

06/24/2011 01:50

There will be no more subdivisions of Israel, no ‘sub-state’ for Arabs in Negev or Galilee, PM declares at Presidential Conference.

On the eve of a meeting of Quartet envoys in Brussels to review ways to restart the Israeli-Palestinian diplomatic process, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Thursday night that the end to the conflict will begin with the Palestinian leaders uttering six simple words: “I will accept the Jewish state.”

Netanyahu, in a speech to the closing session of the Israeli Presidential Conference in Jerusalem, said that peace has eluded the sides for 90 years because the Palestinians never accepted Israel’s existence in the region, within any borders.

His comments came amid Israeli efforts to get a clear Palestinian statement aboutIsrael as a Jewish state front-loaded into any formula on restarting negotiations that might mention the baseline for talks as the 1967 lines, with mutual agreed swaps.

Noting that he had accepted the idea of a Palestinian state in his Bar Ilan speech in 2009, Netanyahu said, “Now I say that [PA] President [Mahmoud] Abbas must do what I did two years ago: he must stand up to his people and say, ‘I will accept the Jewish state.’” Referring to frequent Palestinian comments that Israel can “call itself whatever it wants,” Netanyahu stressed that the issue was not over what it calls itself, but rather over what it is.

“They can call their state Palestine or Arafatland,” Netanyahu said. “I’m not talking about what they call it; but what it is. For them, it is the nation state of the Palestinian people. Israel is the nation state of the Jewish people. This means that the Palestinians go there, and Jews come here.”

  1. For them, it is the nation state of the Palestinian people. Israel is the nation state of the Jewish people. This means that the Palestinians go there, and Jews come here.”

    The last is the key sentence. A Pali state must mean that all Palis that are now Israeli have to go to Arafat land. If that does not happen, then the Palis in Israel willstart to agitate for another state or to join Arafatland.

    The Enduring Holocaust

    105,000 Christians martyred yearly, says European official
    June 06, 2011
    Every year 105,000 Christians are killed because of their faith.
    This shocking figure was disclosed by Italian sociologist Massimo Introvigne, representative of the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) on Combating Intolerance and Discrimination against Christians, at the “International Conference on Inter-religious dialogue between Christians, Jews and Muslims,” sponsored the Hungarian presidency of the European Union (EU) in Gödöllo, near Budapest.
    “Every five minutes”, Introvigne said in his speech, “a Christian is killed for his faith.” The figure does not include the victims of civil wars, or wars between nations, but only the people put to death because they are Christians.
    “If these figures are not cried out to the world, if this massacre is not stopped,” Introvigne continued; “if it is not recognized that the persecution against Christians is the first worldwide emergency with regard to religious discrimination and violence, dialogue between religions will only produce wonderful symposia but no concrete results.”

  3. Given that Medinat Yisrael (the State of Israel) is bounded by the HASHEMITE Kingdom of Jordan (Al Mamlakah al Urduniyah al Hashimiyah) to her east; the Syrian ARAB Republic (Al Jumhuriyah al Arabiyah as Suriyah) to the north-east; and the Arab Republic of Egypt (Jumhuriyat Misr al-Arabiyah) to her west (does anyone remember when the two joined to form the UAR – United ARAB Republic? – and don’t forget the Islamic Republic of Iran (Jomhuri-ye Eslami-ye Iran) and the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (Jomhuri-ye Eslami-ye Afghanestan)), when will the Knesset get the guts to adopt the offical name: The Jewish State of Israel (haMedinat haYehudit Yisrael). It doesn’t make sense to demand that others regognize the Jewish state if the leaders of the state are not willing to take the stand, and declare, officially, what the full name of the Jewish nation is.

    1. Saudi Arabia is a recognized Muslim state, so to Israel is the recognized Jewish one.

    2. Stephane and KGS – your statements are entirely reasonable. We know there is good reason that Jews must have their own homeland.

      Reason these days unfortunately is a rare commodity but eventually Truth must come to light, just as a lie eventually gets harder and harder to support merely because of its inherent fraudulent nature.
