What Victory Looks Like - Israel Stability & Peace Plan

Reader comment on item: Palestinian Statehood Is Acceptable ... Eventually

Submitted by Bear Klein (United States), May 27, 2017 at 15:40

Mr. Pipes, I am not sure you are envisioning what real victory actually would look like. It would be the complete military demolition of the terrorist groups (Fatah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and their supporters and support base. They would killed, deported or jailed.

After that the peaceful Arabs that are left who wish to emigrate can be assisted to leave, as Martin Sherman recommends and no one would be threatening those wishing to leave.. In my plan below which is a mix of Sherman and Bennett's. Mine is staged or incremental with the goal of eventual applying Israeli law to all of Judea/Samaria but starting with Area C.

"New Paradigm for long term peace and stability for Israel"

If you want peace it is time to forget being politically correct and proportional in fighting Palestinian terrorism. It is time to be determined to win the conflict decisively and not just say the conflict will continue forever. It is not acceptable that every few months or years that Palestinians shoot rockets at Israelis, blow up bombs, kidnap children or resort to other forms of violence against Jews in Israel.

Two states in the Land of Israel west of the River Jordan is a formula for war not peace. The Palestinian (Arabs) have for 100 years not accepted the permanent presence of the Jews.

Israel has a legal, historical and moral right to the land of Israel west of the Jordan River.

1. However, except for a small amount of people on the right Israelis do not want to incorporate large amounts of Arabs into Israel. The public does not want a bi-national state.

2. To be able to buy Arabs properties and facilitate their peaceful emigration (buying them out) the terrorists must be jailed, deported or killed otherwise they will exact revenge on the families of those leaving or those leaving before they actually leave. They have a death sentence for selling properties to Jews.

Once you accomplish number 2 above an NGO working with the government should start enacting an humane assisted program of Arab emigration starting with East Jerusalem and Arab villages in Area C near Jewish Towns. Learn as you go and what problems come up. This will be fraught with problems imagined and not imagined. Just like a franchiser learns by first working on a few locations before expanding widely.

Annex Area C. Help the Arabs there emigrate.
Register the people there. Ask do you want to stay and demonstrate loyalty to the Jewish Democratic State of Israel. This will require learning Hebrew; your children will be required to provide civil national service at age 18 to 20.

You will be required to inform on anyone planning terrorist acts including family members. This will be a condition of residency!

If after 10 years of residency they wish to apply for citizenship they may. There then will be at least a two year period to investigate if they have successfully fulfilled the requirements of residency prior to bestowing citizenship. If they and their immediate family have met the conditions citizenship can be bestowed upon them.

Once Israel has successfully integrated Area C it can then work on Areas A and B. Unless you can be sure you know how to successfully help Arabs emigrate overseas and integrate others why would anyone in their right mind make the approximately 1,500,000 Arabs (of Area A/B in Judah & Samaria) Israeli residents yet alone citizens. This is a terrorist's dream, to be able to freely travel all over Israel with an Israeli ID card.

Walk before you run and go step by step in this super risky proposition of incorporating a massive amount of Arabs into the State of Israel. If you can be highly confident that you can help large amounts of Arabs emigrate then you could start annexing parts of Area A (a City at at a time). Israel should NOT bring an Arab Trojan Horse into Zion. If you can NOT make sure a large amount of Arabs will emigrate, not do annex these areas and make these people residents"
