Thinking Out of the Box

Reader comment on item: Poll: Palestinian Rejectionism is Weakening

Submitted by Robert (United States), Sep 15, 2017 at 20:15

There are several issues that
imaginative policy strategists might come up with
to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict
without the destruction of Israel.
Here I list some, with the following Preface:

Palestinian Identity is linked to Arab Identity which is linked to Muslim Identity.
And all have essentially produced and embraced Islamism in some form
with its conflict with Modernity.

1) Instead of Occupied Palestine, or Disputed Territories,
Israelis and Jews supporting should insist Liberated Israel, or even Greater Israel,
as a consequence of European Realpolitik and Defensive Israeli wars.

2) Arab Spring has produced a Political Failure on the part of Arabs and Muslims,
and Palestinians are a part of this Demographic
which is Culturally and Demographically unprepared for a Peaceful Palestinian State
alongside Israel.

3) Palestinians as Muslim Arabs primarily,
especially in the Gaza Strip,
only know of a Ten Year Truce.
It is Insane for Israel or Jews to accept a State
whose People hope and intend to resume warfare, or Jihad in 10 years.

4) Palestinians are ideal to oppose
the Ethic Cleansing of Iraq and Syria and Lebanon
of its Christian and Sunni minorities
in favor of their "own" Shia.
Palestinians should be encouraged and enabled
to settle in these three states
from which the were free to populate
during the Ottoman age.
The myth of Stability should be challenged
as grounds for preserving the borders
created by British and French Bureaucrats
after World War One.

5) Jews were forced to immigrate to Israel
as a consequence of the 1948 Arab-Israeli War,
so Palestinians should be permitted
to settle in appropriate numbers
in proportion to the Jews who left.

6) Europe, and particularly Germany,
feeling shame and guilt for the Holocaust
should augment replace their recent Arab Muslim immigrants
with Palestinians
in proportion to the 6,000,000 Jews
who perished during the Holocaust.

7) For every Jew killed in the Knife Intifada
10,000 Jews should "settle" in the Liberated West Bank.

8) Liberal American Jews - of the George Soros variety - should take in
Palestinians to live as neighbors in their adopted countries;
or immigrate to Israel and participate democratically
to shift Israel's vote to their Left.
It is outrages that Reform Jews,
from the comfort of their non-Middle-Eastern homes
dictate to Jews in Israel
to be a Good Samaritan.
In this context Jews must be reminded
how Peacefully their predecessors board the Cattle Cars
for "Resettlement in the East,"
and how easily they were herded
into the Gas Chambers
in which the greatest Resistance
was transporting the Corpses
into the Crematoria.
What Arabs and Muslims have done to one another
after the Arab Spring, now in its "Islamic Nightmare" phase,
particularly in Syria
should leave one with no doubt
as to what Palestinian Sunnis, or Hezbollah Shia
are capable of doing to Israeli Jews
should they drop their guard
or accept a Palestinian State
in the Foreseeable Future.
