Mr. President, There Can Be No ‘Two-State Solution’

Pages: 1 2

Mr. President, the “two-state” approach to peace between Israel and “Palestine,” strongly reaffirmed in your recent meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, accepts the position of an Israeli “occupation.” Yet, even the most cursory look at pertinent world history would reveal several compelling reasons to reject any such position. Organized Arab terrorism against Israel began on the very first hour of Israel’s independence, in May 1948. Indeed, virulent anti-Jewish terrorism in the British Mandate period had even taken place many years before Israel’s statehood.

What about the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO)?  It was founded in 1964, three years before Israel came to control the West Bank (Judea/Samaria) and Gaza. Mr. President, what was the PLO planning to “liberate” between 1964 and 1967? The answer, of course, must be all of Israel within the “green” armistice lines” of 1949. These are precisely the 1967-borders that you have recently identified as the appropriate starting point for current peace negotiations.

What should we now know about the PLO? Significantly, it was declared a “terrorist organization” in a number of U.S. federal court decisions, including Tel-Oren v. Libyan Arab Republic (1984).

More than five years ago, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, seeking peace with the always-recalcitrant Palestinians, forcibly expelled over 10,000 Jews from Gaza and northern Samaria. Immediately, these areas were transformed by Hamas from productive growing and living areas to terrorist rocket launching sites. Today, in obvious synergy with a new regime in Cairo – a military governing council soon to be intimate with powerful elements of the Muslim Brotherhood – Egypt’s newly reopened Rafah border is creating an unobstructed terrorist path directly into Israel.

Mr. President, why aren’t the Palestinians reasonably expected to cease deliberate and random violence against Israeli civilians before being admitted into the community of nations?  Isn’t it already clear that they seek something other than an “end to occupation.” Isn’t it already very likely that both Fatah and Hamas still regard all of Israel as “occupied” territory. After all, their official maps, long familiar in Washington, still include all of Israel as part of “Palestine.”

Mr. President, without an alleged “occupation,” there could remain no possible legal or moral justification for Palestinian policies of relentless terror.

Nonetheless, the fact that “occupation” is a contrived legal fiction has had little or no impact upon your own administration’s position on Palestinian statehood.

Nor, somehow, has it occurred to your administration that both Hamas and Fatah still find their common ideological mentors in Hitler and Goebbels, two figures for whom the prospective rulers of a nascent “Palestine” are ardent objects of unhidden admiration.

Mr. President, at its core, your policy toward Israel and “Palestine” reveals certain incremental bewitchments of language. Over the years, Arab patience in building an expanding Palestinian state upon mountains of Israeli corpses has been achieved systematically by linguistic victories.  However untrue, the ritualistic canard of an Israeli “occupation” has been repeated so often that it is now generally taken as irrefutable fact.

Mr. President, why is it simply disregarded that Israeli “occupation” followed the multistate Arab aggression of 1967. Egypt, Syria and Jordan (now in the throes of a so-called “Arab Spring”) have never even denied this aggression. And who bothers to recall that these very same Arab states were also the principal aggressors in the explicitly genocidal Arab attacks that began on May 15, 1948, literally moments after the new Jewish State’s UN-backed declaration of independent statehood.

Mr. President, please recall that a sovereign state of Palestine did not exist before 1967, or before 1948.  Nor did UN Security Council Resolution 242 ever promise a state of Palestine. A state of Palestine has never existed. Never.

Even as a non-state legal entity, “Palestine” ceased to exist in 1948, when Great Britain relinquished its League of Nations mandate.  During the 1948-49 Israeli War of Independence, West Bank and Gaza came under incontestably illegal control of Jordan and Egypt respectively. These Arab conquests did not put an end to an already-existing state or to an ongoing trust territory.  What these aggressions did accomplish was the intentional prevention of any Arab state of Palestine.

    Well written and spot on. It continues to defy reason that the west still believes that Hamas and Fatah are sincerely interested in a two state solution, recognizing Israels right to exist. The charters of Hamas and Fatah explicitly state otherwise. Conclusion? The west does indeed know and is aware of the Hamas/Fatah agenda and yet still is pushing for a two state solution. Why the west would do that, in the face of all contradictory evidence is an even more frightening question.

      The Two-State solution is all smoke and mirrors. This is about squeezing Israel out of the Land, and Israel has already complied with many treaties and tried to make peace, its time for the Palestinians to committ to peace and acknowledge the State of Israel and her right to exist….Obama has been on the Pro-Palestinian mission from day 1 of his Presidency.

    • gordon

      Where to begin? It's really amazing that some inbred retarded hick in the swamps of Louisiana thinks they know the charter of a country thousands of miles away. Enjoy Israel while you can, because it is coming down, and coming down fast!!!!!

    What people have forgotten, in this world of political correctness, is that sometime to the victors goes the spoils. Oh, but we can't have that because there might be hurt feelings. elmore

  • ellio falcone

    Why bother ??? Everybody on the political fields has learnt that even after killing millions of people, you have only to appologize even if it is sixty years later and get away with it (It took the Vatican even 2000 years, and still was applaused by even Jewish leaders)

    So we can have it both ways: look correct, and if G. forbids Israel is destroyed, we can always say…Oups

  • geez

    Israel will be the last nation standing when the music really stops.

    Deceitfully called the Arab Israeli conflict, it's global jihad against Israel and the Free World. The nations are on the side of global jihad against victim Israel. A two-state solution will result in the Final Solution, as Mr. Beres states. Every decent person on earth should fight against this with all their might. Not one inch of Jewish Holy Land to barbaric enemies bent on Jewish genocide!

    Long Live Israel! Long live America! Long live the Free World!

    Serial two states in the same land = genocide. Its a question of math, not politics:


  • Monty Lasovsky

    Let the Arab states make the positive gesture to end the conflict by opening their own doors
    to their Arab brethren and let the "Law of Return" apply to all the "Palestinians" being absorbed by all the Arab nations by choice of the Arab "Palestinians" as to which Arab country they would prefer. Then all that would be required is a peace treaty with the Arabs- which is never going to happen. At least Israel's borders would finally be defined and defensible!.

    • Crazyhorse

      How come Jordan won't take them..Lebanon?,,,Are these people the Amonites spoken of in the Bible….Did russia help create these Palastenians in 1948-49…If so why…Any one have an idea..Could all this lead to WW-3…Why is the whole world bothered by little Israel so much….Is it because there is a sucess story in the region,as far as Civ.goes..

    • Gordon

      So I guess Americans should open up their own doors and allow all the Native Americans to reclaim their stolen land right? Wow, didn't think so bigot!

    ' TAQIYYA '
    Do your own research about it if you don't know what this means.

    Islam IS EVIL. PERIOD.

    Islam strives for world domination.

    The Quran commands Muslims to exercise jihad.

    The Quran commands Muslims to establish shariah law.

    The Quran commands Muslims to impose Islam on the entire world.

    Islam is NOT a religion, it IS a totalitarian ideology.

    Islam wants to dominate all aspects of life, from the cradle to the grave.

    Shariah law is a law that controls every detail of life in a Islamic society.

    From civic- and family law to criminal law.

    It determines how one should eat, dress and even use the toilet.

    Oppression of women is good, drinking alcohol is bad.

    The core of the Quran is the call to jihad.

    Jihad means a lot of things and is Arabic for battle.

    Islam means submission, there cannot be any mistake about its goal.

    Islam and freedom, Islam and democracy are not compatible.

    They are opposite values.

    Mohamed's "wife" was six years old.

    That makes Mohamed a PEDOPHILE!!!

    And you want to base a "Religion" on this a z z -holes rantings?

    Are you INSANE?

    If you are Jewish,… Obama and the DemocRATS want you DEAD.

    Just like his ARAB buddies do.

    They want you DEAD. The SOONER the BETTER.

    Barry just said so in his speech.

    What part of that do you NOT understand.

    Oh, and FYI,, to all you LEFTY JEWS,.. the KEY part of your name is JEWS.

    Barry and his ARAB buddies WANT YOU DEAD TOO.

    You are a USEFUL idiots to them.

    WAKE UP. Before it IS to LATE. again.

    • gordon

      I guess that's just why obama is pandering to the Jewish community for his re-election. What a joke you unintelligent, bigoted, inbred morons are!

  • WilliamJamesWard

    Obama the Islamist in Chief has no intention of a two State solution, he only
    wants and Islamist State, covering what will have been Israel, which will be
    erased from history and any land the surrounding Muslim States will allow to
    be included. Obama is completely false in what he says, what he does is
    subversive and abhorent. Obama bows to the Saudi King, Obama bows to
    himself, a true son of Moloch. The inch by inch and yard by yard destruction
    of Israel continues until the day there is not enough left to put up a successful
    defense and then the milliles will rain down and the murdering hordes of
    evil will bring their screaming beards and death robes to the orgy of killing
    Jews, God forbid. Let the Spirit of Jonathan be raised up in Israel and a
    return of David in Israeli thinking………………………..William
