Time to Annex Judea and Samaria

Steven Plaut is a native Philadelphian who teaches business finance and economics at the University of Haifa in Israel.  He holds a PhD in economics from Princeton.  He is author of the David Horowitz Freedom Center booklets about the Hamas  and Jewish Enablers of the War against Israel.


In a few months it will be the twentieth anniversary of the signing of the “Oslo Accord” on the White House lawn.  In that signing, Yassir Arafat, on behalf of the so-called “Palestinian Liberation Organization,” committed himself and his “people” to conduct negotiations with Israel that would lead to a peaceful resolution of the Middle East Arab-Israeli conflict. He forswore unilateral actions and decisions.

Since then, the “Palestinian Authority,” which was set up by the PLO, has violated every single clause in that and the subsequent Oslo Accords.  Twenty years hence, the “Palestinians” as represented by the “Authority” have yet to comply with a single one of their obligations.  Arafat and his gangsters simply used the Accord as a cover to gain control over part of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.  They then converted all the territory they controlled into bases for launching terrorist aggression against Israel.  The Palestinian terrorist groups have murdered at least 1700 Israeli civilians since signing that first “peace accord.”  Thousands of Palestinian rockets have been launched into Israel aimed at Israeli civilians, and not just by the Hamas.  “Palestinian leaders” repeat several times each day before breakfast that their aim is the obliteration of Israel altogether and that they will never recognize the legitimacy of Israel within any set of borders.

The media controlled by the “Authority” and the terrorist organizations have been thoroughly nazified; they broadcast anti-Semitic filth that exceeds what the German Nazis broadcast in the 1930s.  The Gaza Strip has been completely nazified. Very little distinguishes the Islamofascism of the Hamas from the Islamofascism of the PLO, and the “president” of the Palestinian Authority is a certified Holocaust Denier.

And now to top it all off, the “Palestinian Authority” has unilaterally declared itself to be a sovereign state and applied for United Nations membership as such.  This is just the latest and not even the worst violation of “Palestinian” obligations under the Oslo Accords.

There is growing debate about how Israel should respond to the behavior of the “Palestinians.”  Indeed, there have already been calls in Israel to implement part of the proposals that follow here.  This unilateral “declaration” of Palestinian statehood and bid for international recognition is not just a wholesale repudiation of the Oslo Accords by the “Palestinians.”  It is also as much a declaration of war as was the secession of South Carolina.  Any similar “secession” would be casus belli in any other country on the planet and would be suppressed with arms.  And any country endorsing or supporting such secession would be treated as an enemy belligerent.

Israel must make it crystal clear: the experimental Israeli willingness to consider acquiescing in the creation of a separate Palestinian state is over.  The “Palestinians” never had a legitimate claim to statehood in the first place, although in exchange for peace Israel was in the past willing to overlook this.  The “Palestinians” forfeited any shaky claim they might have had to statehood because of their behavior during the past two decades, indeed during the past century, their nonstop barbarism and mass atrocities.  This is much like the East Prussians and Sudeten Germans forfeiting all THEIR rights to self-determination and even to autonomy after World War II.

Israel must declare: The game of pretense and fiction is over.  Israel is no longer willing to pretend that there exists some sort of “Palestinian people” entitled to statehood.  The “Palestinians” are Arabs, and Arabs already have 22 states.  They will not get yet another inside Israeli lands.  Any Palestinian wishing to enjoy national sovereignty is free to move to one of those 22 Arab states, but no Arab sovereignty will exist in Israeli territory, meaning the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea.

The “Palestinian declaration of statehood” must be dealt with by means of a unilateral Israeli settlement imposed on the West Bank and de-nazification of the local population.

The principles upon which such a unilateral Israeli concordance and resolution must be founded are these:

1.  The West Bank belongs to Israel and is Israeli in all ways.  No non-Israeli sovereignty of any form will be permitted in the territory between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea.  The West Bank is part of the Jewish national homeland, always was, and always will be.

2.  “Palestinian” Arabs living in the West Bank will not receive Israeli citizenship and will not vote in Israeli national elections.

3.  The land and resources in the West Bank will remain under Israeli supervision, control, and regulation.

4.  “Palestinians” who do not wish to live under Israeli sovereignty will be free to leave.  Israel may consider providing financial support, property compensation, or incentives for those so wishing to leave.

5.  Most “Palestinians” choosing to remain in the West Bank will live in reservations, in some ways resembling Native-American-Indian territories that function inside the United States (possibly even including casinos), although in some ways they will differ.  Reservations will be operated in those parts of the West Bank that have large concentrations of Arab population, meaning Jericho, Nablus, Ramallah, Jenin, Tul Karem, and a few other areas.  Reservations will NOT have territorial contiguity.  In each reservation, the “Palestinians” will be permitted autonomy and limited self-rule to manage their own local affairs as long as violence is completely absent from the reservation.  Where violence is present, they will be denied autonomy.  Reservations from which terrorism arises may be shut down and their populations dispersed.  Arabs engaging in or supporting terrorism in any way will be deported.

6.  “Palestinians” in the West Bank will be considered to be resident aliens within the Jewish state.  Many still have Jordanian passports and citizenship and will be considered resident Jordanians.  “Palestinians” who do not have Jordanian citizenship will be stateless unless they obtain citizenship from some other country.

7.  Jews will have the right to live anywhere they wish in the West Bank outside the reservations assigned to the “Palestinian” Arabs. The territory in the West Bank in which Arabs do not live or live sparsely, and this includes the Jordan Valley and the sparse areas in between the reservations, will be opened to unlimited Jewish settlement.

The villages and towns with the Arab reservations will be assigned to two lists, a white list and a black list.  Those in the white list will manage their own affairs without interference from the Israeli central authorities.  Residents of white-list towns may hold commuter jobs in Israeli cities and industrial parks.  The local authorities in the white areas will manage their schools and other local institutions.  They will collect their own taxes and may benefit from revenue sharing arrangements with the Israeli fiscal authorities, like other Israeli towns.  They might be allowed to operate their own local police forces.  Residents in white-listed areas will be fully and freely mobile, able to move freely within and among all white-list areas. They will be allowed to develop local industry and tourist services.  Their residents will have access to Israel universities, health facilities, and other services.

Those towns and villages in the black list will enjoy none of the above.  Their residents will be denied the opportunity to hold day jobs in Israeli cities and industrial parks.  They will have no access to Israeli services.  They will have control over nothing.  Their residents will be prevented from moving freely outside their reservation, except in cases where they wish to leave the country altogether.  They will receive no shared revenues, no fiscal incentives.

Villages and towns will be assigned to the two lists based entirely on one single factor: violence.  Areas in which violence occurs, and this includes rock throwing, will be assigned to the black list.  Areas in which violence is absent will be assigned to the white list.  Towns and villages will be reassigned to the black list from the white list when terrorism, sniping, mortars, rockets, or other forms of violence occur there.  Towns and villages in the black list will be assigned to the white list only when the local population cooperates fully with Israel in apprehending and arresting the terrorists and those engaged in violence, and takes other effective actions to end the violence.  Otherwise they will remain on the black list indefinitely.  Entry into black list areas will be denied to foreigners, journalists, and especially to the “International Solidarity” anarchists and their ilk. Any such anarchist infiltrating the areas of the black list will be denied permission to leave them and will remain there indefinitely, or else will be imprisoned by Israel.

This of course leaves the dilemma of the Gaza Strip.  As noted, because of the Israeli folly of withdrawing from and abandoning its control over the Gaza Strip, the area is now nothing more than a large rocket-launching terrorist base.  I happen to believe that, in the long run, Israel will have no choice but to re-impose its complete control over the Gaza Strip.

But for the immediate future, an Israeli unilateral set of moves will be necessary here as well.  Basically these must consist of a three-pronged assault against Gaza the very first time that a rocket is launched into Israel from that territory.  In this assault, Israel will seize a strip of land several kilometers wide that will divide the Gaza Strip from Egypt and this will end the massive smuggling of weapons, explosives, drugs and other materials into Gaza.  The other two prongs will split Gaza into three smaller segments.  Israel will control movement of people and materials among these segments.  It will arrest and shoot terrorists on the spot.  And eventually it may impose the system of reservations and the white-black lists upon Gaza as well.

This is how Israel should respond to the declaration of war by the “Palestinians” in their unilateral declaration of statehood.

          So what is the answer? Arafat got control 20 years ago over area A, B IF HE TOTALLY stopped terror and hate incitement. He and his children have not done a thing since then, why should Israel wait longer? Peres, in those days, broke Israeli law talking in secrecy with Arafat and it has not led anywyhere. They have not even tried to get their own economy, it is all professional begging. It is now obvious that Israel immediately should have annected the area Jordan illegally had occupied.
          Remember, also before Oslo, more than 95% of the West Bank arabs lived in area A, B.

      IMHO, the only Israeli strategy should be are to give the PLO a 30 day eviction notice on the West Bank, because more and more artifacts are being discovered of Jewish inhabitance and zero Arabic. Physically Boot Abbas out of the country. Takeover 100% of Jerusalem. Islam have NO claim to that part of the world whatsoever. Reclaim the Dome of the Rock and bulldoze it, because Muhammad never was there, historical dates prove that it wasn't built while he was alive, and his faux prophet wet dreams don't count.

    In a sane world this would have happened a long time ago. Israeli ingenuity, courage and survival mentality will need to gestate a little while longer before they can be sufficiently independent of world opinion to mount such an operation.

    • Rostislav

      "In a sane world" – ah, how I longed for this wonderful never-world! Unfortunately, I hadn't seen a single glimpse of it during all my life both in the USSR and after! So, little by little I've learned to use only my personal opinion only, whatever the world's fashionable prescriptions are – they are always insane, always so far from my own ones, and from those of my Russian parents and of my grandparents, who were nor dimwit parasites, neither cowardly sheep. Some of them perished during the Communist time, and I will never betray their memory, joining the insane world's slogans about Israel apartheid, peace process with terrorists etc – I have my own opinion, based on my own impressions from many visits to Israel and on my bookshelves' treasures of historical research. So I fully support the content of this honest and sane article – as my dear grandmother used to say, "Use your own brains first, and never care about Comrade Collective's brains, second. Because this Comrade is usually absolutely brainless". Rostislav, Saint-Petersburg, Russia.

    If Israel were to implement this plan, I guarantee that it would find itself subjected to very harmful economic sanctions comparable to those that were imposed on South Africa and, today, on Iran. Does this mean such sanctions would be justified? No. Israel could reasonably object that it was offering the Palestinians in the reservations the opportunity to emigrate to one of 21 Arab states (or elsewhere), or to be citizens of Jordan or some other country, and that, in any case, sovereignty for Muslim Arabs has not turned out to be a great thing, leading in all cases to dictatorship and endemic corruption, and often to terrorism, war, and mass murder. No matter. The world is anti-Semitically oriented and eager to appease Arab states and internal Muslim populations, and would implement sweeping economic sanctions on Israel regardless of these arguments, which would be dismissed in less time than they could be stated or writeen.. Neither any Israeli government nor, certainly, the Israeli people would be willing to endure the sanctions. Israeli governments, and the population, must deal with the real world–to be sure, not a just or morally noble entity–and not with fantasies.

  • crackerjack

    This whole article is nonsense. The international community knows no region recognized as "Judea" nor "Samaria". The region in question is internationally recognized as West Jordan Land and internationally recognized as under Israel occupation. Annexation would change nothing, exept transffering responsibility for the whole population of the region to the Israeli goverment. And Mr Plauts' vision for dealing with such a situation sums up to Israel becoming a full scale colonial/apardheid regime.

    • The Inverse

      The West Bank was never recogized as West Jordan except by Jordan itself after it illegally annexed it. The Arabs themselves do not even recognize any of Palestine and refer to it as Southern Syria.

      You know its funny because I thought that Israel was ALREADY an apartheid state. Surely you don't mean to imply that the existing accusations of colonialism, occupation and apartheid might, perhaps, be… slightly overstated?

    • reader

      Apart from "the international community" and "apartheid" and all that commie nonsense, Jordan flatly refused to even consider reannexing Judea and Samaria, when some of Israeli polititians floated the idea at one point or another. So, that's that.

    • Michael

      This is ludicrous. Any State attacked by a belligerent State, who then loses territory to the State being attacked, loses that territory to the State being attacked forever. UN RESOLUTION. The Golan, Gaza, West Bank were all taken after Israel was attacked by Syria, Jordan, and Egypt. It is all ISRAELI LAND per UN Treaty. This nonsense of apartheid is ludicrous and you are merely spouting off talking points like a useful idiot.

    • Drakken

      You know something Crackerjack, your right, why would Israel want to deal with a hostile population of muslims bent on revenge and jihad? So in order to avoid that apartheid label, push every last muslim fakestinian into Jordan proper.

      "The region in question is internationally recognized as West Jordan Land and internationally recognized as under Israel occupation."

  • AnOrdinaryMan

    So maybe America should give the states that were the original 13 colonies back to England. After all, the Americans took these states from England; a sovereign country of thousands of years standing. Jordan had some responsibility for the West Bank BEFORE 1967; not as much today. Israel has more right to Judea and Samaria than Americans did(do) to these 13 states. By the way, how do you justify YOUR existence? (You are asking the same question of Israel and Jews)

    Apparently some of the commenters willingly try to hide the fact that the US today and since over hundred years has 483 "Indian" Reservations, several of which I visited as invited guest in person.
    Operated under the control of the US Secretary of the Interior, Bureau of "Indian" Affairs, Washington, DC, USA. Those NATIVE AMERICANS are the rightful owners of the whole of the US. Some of their ancestors lived there over 9000 years ago from North America and as far South as the Andes lower slopes in the Patagonia in Argentina. They were attacked and destroyed or sent to Reservations.
    In our case in Eretz Israel, we are the aborigenes here with 5700 years credentials and the invading marauders of Islam have no rights to our Land. None.
    The foreign nations are not, again, not entitled to distribute our Heritage. No more needs to be added.
    Not the Romans, nor the Ottomans and certainly not the Brutish or the newfangled State Department of the US. The Vatican MUST return our Temple's Icons stolen by Rome and in the Vatican vaults.
    Neither the "un" nor its members have rights to assert here on behalf of their oil suppliers.
    We will build in our Land in Judea and Samaria and in our ancestral Capital, Jerusalem.
    Murderous Islam will have to vacate or be removed.

      As horrible as this sounds, it might be the best option with the lowest loss of life. It will force all of these wannabe Caliphs to move against the West and bring this cold war with Islamic imperialism to a hot conclusion. Actually they go in heavy as outlined above with tactical and strategic nukes ready for launch or deployment. Then anyone who tries to escalate by joining the war on the side of the belligerent Islamic supremacist "Palestinians" will immediately be dispatched with the same tactics they use; total war with no quarter given until they are confirmed to be totally disarmed. Then we set up Japanese-style constitutions for those who finally see the light and want to make peace with the West.

      It could work, but you must first make me temporary dictator while I clean up the US government and make our plans. Then we hold new elections and continue according to our US constitution.

    Really, I'd like to see Prime Minister Netanyahu make a scheduled speech at the UN where he calmly announces something along this line. But as a preamble he describes how the West Bank and Gaza, effective 12 noon today in Jerusalem, will be deemed 100% part of the sovereign territory of the nation of Israel. All Arabs, falsely a.k.a. 'Palestinians', who currently reside anywhere in Israel will be required to move to one of the black or white reservations which will be demarcated by the Israeli Foreign Minister who will be speaking later today.

  • directedby1

    I and the Israeli Cabinet have also decided, unilaterally, that Lebanon and Jordan will be deemed Israeli Protectorate States. If their governments do not comply, their territory will be forcibly annexed to the State of Israel. IDL forces will take up positions in forward border posts along the international boundaries of Lebanon and Jordan. At this moment, as we sit here deliberating, it is my happy duty to inform this chamber that Israeli forces are now in position in Iran. Military installations across Iran are being bombed to oblivion now, as we speak. Our forces stand ready to deliver the same fate to Syrian military installations as well. Documents are this moment being delivered into the hands of UN Ambassadors for Iran and Syria, documents which carry the unilateral articles of surrender. If they fail to sign these documents there will be hell to pay beyond anything the Muslim world will see for decades to come. Thankyou and good day.

  • Marty

    Annexation is a wonderful concept, though it is not entirely practical in its fullest expression. Israel, however, should immediately annex all areas of Judea and Samaria required for its security and any arabs living in these places should be compensated for their property and escorted to a nearby hellhole occupied by the palestinian authority. The Allon Plan might be a good model. There would still be plenty of territory remaining for inbred arabs to sit around, devour hundreds of millions of dollars of American aid annually, and express their hatred of Israel.

  • Underzog

    The idea isn't annexation as Steve Plaut suggests, but to throw the arabs out of all of Eretz Yisrael. So what if they annex Judea and Samaria if the arab population stays in place to cause all the trouble they do? Incidentally, the Left understands the demographic problem better than Israel's right, except the Left deals with it in a cowardly self hating manner of expelling and harassing their fellow Jews. Steve Plaut and others of his ilk don't have the guts to state the real solution of expulsion because they are afraid of our many neo Communists members of the tribe in America of whom 70% voted for the non neo/real Communist Obama and would oppose such an idea because it goes against their neo Commie beliefs.

    • reader

      I've seen credible reports about demographic trends favoring the Jews, particularly with respect to Judea and Samaria. The left understands how to use "statistics" for propaganda, but I don't think that the left understand the statistics anymore than the left understands the laws of economics.

      • Underzog

        I think the Left understands there is a problem (ahem) between the Jewish and Arab populations there. What's left of the Fogel family (whose little infant was decapitated) might understand it, too. Even if the Arabs don't become a true majority, the constant rock throwing, murders, rocket attacks on civilians; etc., are a problem and they need to be dealt with. Those… "problems" should be dealt with by the expulsion of the Arabs; not the Jews being kicked out of their homes Czarist Russia style.

  • redwood509

    Did you forget that many Arabs live there, they have families, many overseas, they wish to have their own form of "government", is this the right thing for Israel, to rule over so many hostile neighbors, who do not wished to be under Jewish rule? Those who put their life on the line in 1967, never thought that they were serving in unform to get land, to become rulers over others, to become obnoxious and stupid, to subsidize 1/2 a million, mainly Orthodox Jews, with posh living on land that is disputed and mostly did not belong to the State. This is utter madness and only those who do not know the region , nor have had any history in the country would write rubbish like this. How many Jews really want all these Arabs to decide on their future, to vote in the same Parliament?

      You are right, who would want those hostile muslims in theirmidst to cause trouble, push them out and problem solved.

      "Did you forget that many Arabs live there, they have families, many overseas, they wish to have their own form of "government""

      They've failed. Why is that anyone else's fault but their own? You don't get to point to your ancestors foul acts and then say well we failed so now you need to make us whole from our own mistakes because we want to have our own sovereign nation. It must be built by the sovereign and they failed completely. You don't even have a clue about what a nation is.

      "Those who put their life on the line in 1967, never thought that they were serving in unform to get land, to become rulers over others, to become obnoxious and stupid, to subsidize 1/2 a million, mainly Orthodox Jews, with posh living on land that is disputed and mostly did not belong to the State. This is utter madness and only those who do not know the region , nor have had any history in the country would write rubbish like this. How many Jews really want all these Arabs to decide on their future, to vote in the same Parliament?"

      So many fallacies I don't know where to begin. But none of it is relevant to the facts of history or the present situation. The Islamic supremacist group calling themselves "Palestinians' caused all of this. We don't care that they must now pay the brunt of the cost of the solution. They've done nothing but sponge off the West and their own allies for several generations now. What's your answer? You don't have one, or worse, you think you do.

  • ziontruth

    Mr Plaut, the timid suggestions you make would be the Jewish State's undoing.

    Haven't we learned anything yet? Members of national groups have their self-pride. They will not accept semi-autonomous political life under "reservations." Hendrik Verwoerd, the architect of South African apartheid, thought the blacks would be happy under semi-autonomy; he was woefully wrong, and after about 40 years his mistake brought his system down, mainly through the pressure of ANC guerrilla warfare.

    What do you mean by using the word "reservations" anyhow?! "Reservations" means calling the Arab settler-colonist land-thieving invaders in the Land of Israel indigenous like the American Indians. This is exactly the inversion of the truth that the propaganda of Arab imperialism has foisted on the world. No, but the truth is the Arabs are colonists here and the Jews are the natives; all Arab population centers on the Land of Israel are illegal settlements, and all Jewish population centers here are just and legal.

    If you bring the example of the Sudetenland, why don't you go with it to its logical conclusion? The grave error of 1919 was that members of the German nation were allowed to live under the political roof of the Czechs and Slovaks; this provided the perfect pretext for German imperialism, and only in 1945 was the mistake rectified, by mass expulsion of the entire Sudeten-German population. Leaving jobs unfinished like in 1919, or like the way the French let Algerian Arabs reside in their country even after 1962, or like the Hindus still having Muslims in India despite the exchange of 1947, is a recipe for bloodshed. It is no wonder, then, that HaShem's infinite wisdom, in Numbers 33:50–53, orders that the entire enemy population be driven out of the land, with no exceptions.

    Any solution falling short of the removal of the entire enemy population of Arab settler-colonists from all the Land of Israel is no solution at all. And if it's international reactions you fear, then you have no business complaining about Israel's current predicament; only those Jews who are ready to tell the Jew-hating world to stick it where the sun don't shine deserve to stand at the helm of the Jewish State.

      This is a total war based on religious ideology. You can't compare this to national movements, because that's not what's driving 99.9% of the belligerent Islamic actors. It is driving 0% of their supporters. Second, the apartheid regime in SA had a totally different history than Israel. That history is precisely what led to this situation. Ignoring those huge distinctions is to lose entirely all of the lessons that matter. What is wrong with you?

      • ziontruth

        "This is a total war based on religious ideology. You can't compare this to national movements"

        Since Islam is really Arab imperialism, the differentiation is not as neat as you suggest. Let me say at the outset: Any interpretation of geopolitics that ignores Islam is lacking, and any interpretation that posits Islam as the only factor is lacking too. In 1891, the Arab delegation to the Ottoman Sultan that demanded a stop to Jewish aliyah consisted mainly of Muslims wishing to enforce the Jews' dhimmi status, but also of Christians as well, for whatever motive.

        "Second, the apartheid regime in SA had a totally different history than Israel."

        I know that. You're a dense one, aren't you? Can't you see my whole point, that I want Israel to avoid becoming like South Africa? The non-solution of keeping the local Arab colonists in reservations would bring exactly to that. I don't know and I don't care what South Africa should have done; if I mention its history, it's for the same reason I talk about the "success" of multiculturalism (nation-mixing and colonization misleadingly named) in Western Europe: As a warning not to make others' mistakes.

        "What is wrong with you?"

        What's wrong with me, it appears, is I think not only objective facts matter but also the plain meaning of the words written. You've done nothing but attack a strawman.

  • Arlie

    Oslo in Hebrew translates to toilet seat. Heard this somewhere and if true or not, it fits the butt stupid "accord" this is was.

  • Drakken

    If Israel wants peace, it is going to have to push out the muslims of the west bank and gaza period, leaving hostile bloodthirsty muslims in your midst is a recipe for disaster. Look at Rhodesia and South Africa today after the blacks took over from the whites if you want a glimpse into the future if you let hostle muslims stay in your country.

  • JacksonPearson

    Israel is NOT obligated to give up any lands won in battles. That's not the way it's played. Israel did that with Gaza, and to show their appreciation, Hamas fired thousands of rockets from there, into Israel. Israel should have made Gaza into a no-mans land by bulldozing it back into sand dunes.

    • Drakken

      Hey now Jackson, Gaza would really make a great resort area on the Med, why waste the sand? ;)

      • JacksonPearson

        Israel, or any other country shouldn't allow a strip or piece of land to be occupied with people to be used as a rocket launching pad. When people refuse to live in peace, then I say, bulldoze the land they're living on back to the age of sand dunes. Scru world opinion, Gaza's citizens and leadership have to pay a price.

  • Herb Benty

    A wonderful article, loads of common sense, however, the "left" around the world will be hard to get onside given their revulsion at admitting error. To hades with the left and extremist arabs( thats their destination anyway), Israel… take over your own country!!

  • Ghostwriter

    Be careful,Mr. Plaut. crackerjack and his merry band of Jew haters are on the prowl,waiting to attack you because you defend Israel's right to exist. They are on the side of the Palestinians,the most anti-American,anti-democratic people on the face of planet Earth.

  • American thinker

    Maybe all the Christian Copts in Egypt could move to the Siani and create their own nation supported by Israel and the west, would be a good buffer zone between Israel and Egypt.

    • http://iamiranaware.wordpress.com/ IranAware

      Ive been saying that for a couple years now,it would work too cause all the Arabs could be pushed across the canal into Egypt proper,Im sure like the Israelis, the Copts would do wonders with the Sinai and no one harassing and murdering them daily..

  • Silverio Facundo

    This is a good first approach to ending the status-quo that has been the norm since the intifadas and the Oslo accord. But it should only be the first step towards full integration of the territory. Muslims in arab-occupied Judea, Samaria and Galilee should be encouraged to leave, either by economical retribution or by making their life similar to … well, what muslims do to non-muslims in muslim-dominated countries.

    The comparisons to American reservations, although a good one, is not a valid one. Native American Indians are less than 2% of the total US population against arabs being about 30% of the total Israeli population. Indians don't have the nationalistic-driven will that arabs have. Indians don't follow a violent religion that commands them to commit suicide in order to kill non-Indians. Non-Indians that go into a reservation come out maybe a little tipsy and maybe with a few hundred dollars less, but unharmed. Israelis going into an arab "reservation" would very likely get killed.

    The mantra that must be instilled into every Israeli and every Jew is: "There is already a Palestinian muslim/arab country. It's called Jordan and it's currently usurped by the Hachemite lackeys of the Saudis". The national aspirations of arabs for a country in "Palestine" should be confined and limited to Jordan in everybody's mind and everybody's heart.

    How does one annex the land of promise, it already belongs to the Jews and has for thousands
    of years, when they wake up to that fact and stop playing political roulette, return to the God of
    thier fathers then seek out the words of the Prophets, then it will be quite clear, Israel is big land
    wise……………..William

    This sounds like a fine plan for Israel. The biggest question I have is, how will they be able to implement it?

    I love the way you think. Have you viewed Pat Condell's latest video? It is a good one!!

    I can not for the life of me see why we/ or any civilized society ever championed the PLO cause. Effing barbarians the lot of em!!

  • Wallace Bramd

    In the 1920 San Remo agreement, the WWI Allies recognized World Jewry's political rights to Palestine but determined to put them in trust so that a then Jewish minority would not exercise sovereignty until it attained a population majority. Under the terms of the trust it was to facilitate Jewish immigration into Palestine and the trustee's official advisor would be the Zionist Organization. As trustee, the UK had legal dominion over the political or national rights. How do you exercise legal dominion over political rights — by exercising a temporary limited sovereignty limited by the terms of the trust agreement.

    Where there is a breach of an agreement, the innocent party has the right to suspend its performance. The PLO has broken Oslo II by 1. failing to formally change its Charter, 2. by its failure to live up to its renunciation of violence, and 3. by attempting and changing its status thereby reneging on its promise to do so only by negotiation. Israel's parallel promise was to refrain from annexing Judea and Samaria. It would not have to declare the agreement terminated. It could simply annex Judea and Samaria as a suspension of its performance and leave it up to the PLO to determine whether to declare the Oslo agreement is terminated.

    One should not overdo the propaganda.

  • priest

    An occupation of old Judea and Samaria will push Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and others around to enter the last war with Israel. They are waiting for Israel to do that step. They will have a "casus belli" to begin war.

    I''m all for it.

    But not without expulsion.

  • warren raymond

    No annexation without expulsion!

  • zyklonne

    Jews aren't all that great either. Just as scummy, filthy, and liars.

  • Horace

    This idea is better than the current mess. The permanent reservation thing wont work at all. It would just cntinue the festering hatred of the Arabs in West bank & Gaza for the Jews. temporary refugee camps while awaiting repatriation to Jordan and Egypt might be OK. Keep the Christians as they are peaceful and not hostile to Jews, and they would be killed by the Muslim jihadis in Arabia. Allow them to go to Europe or America if they want to. The only way is to physically evict all the Muslim Arabs by immediately moving the borders and people back miles at a time towards Jordan & Egypt every time there is a bombing or rocket attack or other act of war on Israel. Get it over with fast so it will be a fact on the ground. Israel must take Sinai in the same way, for some defensive size to protect against chemical or nuclear attack. It will be an ugly operation, but obviously necessary to end the war by not tolerating ANY acts of war from jihadis and their supporters.

  • muchiboy

    Really,this would be a win-win solution to the Arab/Jewish dilemma,though it would require time and plenty of magnanimity from both peoples,who should be able to live together as one.There are precedents,for success and failure.

    The West Bank belongs to Israel. Annex it now!!! Kick the paLIEStinians out of the Jewish homeland. Israel won’t be bullied by muslims.
