No Peace at Israel's Expense, Mr President - Peace Will Cost More than a 'Palestinian' State

Reader comment on item: Obama and Netanyahu Meet: What's Next?
in response to reader comment: Why not say that there is already a Palestinian state called Jordan

The quandary of what to call the 'Palestinian' state comes from the twentieth century circumstance of trying to pacify a hostile force wanting nothing less than to take the Jewish people out of the Middle East and reinserting remnants of a former population that occupied the territory under the Turkish Ottoman empire. Historically, there has never been a 'Palestinian' state, nor a 'Palestinian' people. It is an unfortunate appellation carried over from a European occupation of the land that failed to respect the history.

Calling Israel into being in 1948 was a fulfillment of a long running prediction that came forth from the intensity of a global distaste for things Semitic, and it was done for reasons not understood by those mere mortals who were responsible. That Israel is in possession of this contentious land now should be cause for considerable concern; and now that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has firmly restated his intention to keep Israel intact (and natural growth in settlement areas are going to continue), it should be a heads up that things are not going to be any easier, especially for those that think that a 'Palestinian' state is an answer to the mounting crisis ready to envelop the region.

The newly engaged political direction from Israel's enemies is to call for the United States of America to commence an action for regime change for Israel, now that there is a realization that negotiations for the continued 'Road Map' are likely stalemated. If this does not meet the expected result, we can expect that the hostiles north and south of Israel's borders will commence what they have been planning and preparing for all along, the armed expulsion of the Jewish population in the land.

Let us be painfully plain. Nothing less than armed confrontation is the intent of the armed forces prepared against Israel. They will have realized that negotiations have reached the final impasse and the insurgent forces calling upon their allegiance to their covert leadership will be released with the full expectation of a nuclear back-up to make good on their unfounded claims to the land. It will not be about the 'Palestinian' statehood then, but about expelling an Israeli population for spite of their ethnicity, and to do it in the name of world peace.

Sadly, the world will not realize this peace, and will find that its intentions for peace at Israel's expense was a price it could not pay. Instead, peace will come, but Israel is prophetically set to be the benefactor and beneficiary of peace, after all others have failed in the mortal attempts to bring it about.
