A serious flaw

Reader comment on item: Hints of Trump's Forthcoming Palestinian-Israeli Plan

Submitted by Andrew Frisch, Sep 15, 2018 at 00:42

There is a basic flaw in the United State's approach with regards a two state solution: a Palestinian State of whatever boundaries.

That flaw is that the stalemate thus far in what have been efforts for a two state solution have amounted to nothing because of Hamas and the PLO authority - both of which have to be removed, or if need be, destroyed - if a Palestinian state can come into "stable" existence.

Who is to say, for example, if a young Palestinian state, under the control of Hamas and the PLO,would be able to stop every terrorist group from pouring into the new state - or would want to.

Who cannot see that one of the goals of a New Palestinian state would be to destabilize its Arab enemies. After all that's were the ex-Jordanians who now call themselves Palestinians came from. Gaza was originally populated with the seditious rabble that tried to replace the Jordanian Kingdom after the Jordanians threw them out when Black September came to the Mideast and folded into Fatah - the PLO forerunner.

To put it another way, anyone in this Administration who thinks they can control events - or prevent them from happening in the future - is a fool. It is almost - but not quite - inevitable.
