Changes of State

Reader comment on item: Jordan at the Precipice
in response to reader comment: Three State Solution

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Mar 28, 2017 at 18:14

Even after stating that any solution other than Israeli sovereignty over any part of the Holy Land that is promised to Abraham, this review of a 'three state solution' suggests that some sense of political parity for all who might seek its plausibility will quickly come to a loss of reality: it will never work. The seeds of ummah have been planted so insidiously that the words mouthed by Abbas typically betray his subversive mind on the matter; and now he has a subservient UN vaunting his own preferences on this.
There is the suggestion he might think that the Trump Administration might come around to his thinking: but it is merely a suggestion that has little chance of converting Abbas' mentality.

Abbas cannot be expected to have consensus with the 'other Arabs' that make up the pre-Arab population that were not 'Palestinian' before 1947; for as it espoused here: why would they?

Still, Israel can expect that other similarly determined forces will advance an agenda so steeply ingrained with the idea that Israel's preconceived vulnerability could allow a reverse in fortunes is actually so ill-conceived; that when they begin to advance on Israel and lose so badly, not even the most skilled media spin will be able to explain how they could have missed the greatest story ever told. The only truth about a three state solution is that when the ice melted into a liquid that eventually vaporized in milliseconds as the change of state occurred in the Middle East, only a remnant was left to experience the changed state of mind that it caused.
