All Four Proposals Fail for the Lack of Integrity of Any That Will Not Recognize Israel's True Rights

Reader comment on item: The Three-Way Option: Arab States, Israel, Palestinians

This article is a kind of executive summary of the circumstances that has brought the former existence of Israel, foundering in anonymity for centuries, back from the dead, just as her Holy Writ said would happen. Subliminal to this situation is that from the historical record, the uncounted attempts to keep this from happening have all been delaying tactics, none fully bringing the promise to a terminal point.

The Article hits three points of Israel's deeply intended desire to be co-existent with the neighbors in the region, yet every one doomed to being footnotes is the diplomatic realm since all three points have an underlying problem: not all potential partners for any kind of peace effort have a sincerity about the real feelings in dealing with Israel.

What some may recognize is that in all of these attempts, they fail to concede that any peace deal with Israel is going to cost them at minimum, their own legitimacy. Since World War 1, all of the nations in the region clamoring for the minimization of Israel's rights in the Levant are themselves recast from a previous existence under former governments, the likes of which were just as anti-Semitic then as their successors are now.
World War 2 juggled the extents of the fabricated borders even more in order to give room to the nascent Jewish State that was presumptively a result of the expulsion from the European theater, but the remnant Jewish populations found resettling in their dormant homeland just as fraught with the death dealing sentiments that they had in the places from which they were dispossessed.

Not to diminish Ya'alon's hope for some normalized interactive relation with any regional partner for peace, for the reason that 'Palestinians' are not welcome in these states with which there is at least an Arabic connection to the population that claims land rights to Israeli territories, they are still tribal in their perception of who is allowed and who is not given passage to a better place to live.
At best, giving the 'Palestinian' population lands in the extant nation of Israel is prepossessed with issues of sovereignty that will never stand the test of time. This is factual in the observation that even in this modern day where civility should have been the result of the 1st Great War of the twentieth century, civility towards the Jewish people has yet to be achieved fully in a world assembly that denies them any.
All four proposals fail: historically, there is/will be only one answer to the issue of Israeli sovereignty; the land is theirs, alone. A Trump presidency has one chance to make this point plain; and if so, then we'll see the true colors of Israel's enemies as they are dealt with accordingly to their crimes of infamy.
