Financial Inducement for Palestinians

Reader comment on item: Annexing the West Bank Would Hurt Israel

Submitted by Reynald de Chatillon (Australia), May 22, 2020 at 01:38

Daniel Pipes has written an article which will be painful reading for many Jewish people. To forgo the annexation of Judea and Samaria is to give up the heartland of the biblical kingdom of David and Solomon, as well as the area ruled by the Hasmonean kings and Herod the Great during the 1st century BC. However, I certainly understand the reasons put forward by Daniel Pipes in his opposition to annexation and its consequences. All these fears will come to pass if a left-leaning Israeli government with lofty ideals comes to power and extends the citizenship to all the Palestinian population.This will spell disaster for the Jewish State. It will only lead to more demands, such as the right of return for all Palestinian refugees. Has the Israeli government ever seriously considered offering financial inducements for Palestinian to leave the country. Geert Wilders has actually proposed a similar option for Muslims living in the Netherlands.
