"Arab countries have always rejected the two-state-solution available"

The «humanitarian catastrophe» can be ended by unifying Gaza with Egypt and the West Bank with Jordan. But the Arab World will reject this, because Islamic believers wants to to use the «Palestinians» as a tool to destroy Israel.

 

Radical Islam can not accept a two-state-solution. Israel has to go.

Before 1967 there was a two-state-solution, but no peace with Israel. Why? Because at that time Gaza was a part of Egypt, and the so-called West bank was under military control of the kingdom of Jordan.

Why did Egypt not give Gaza to the «Palestinians?» Why did Jordan refuse to give the so-called West bank to the PLO?

If Gaza is returned to Egypt, and Judea and Samaria is «given back» to Jordan, than the «Palestinian problem» will be solved?

At least the Arab World will no longer be able to blame the misery of the claimed to be Palestinians on the Jewish state.

Going back to the time before 1967, the pain and agony of the Arab Palestinians will surely be brought back to their Muslim brothers, who created the mess in the region by trying to destroy Israel in 1948 and 1967. But there will still be no peace. Because there can be no peace in an Islamic heart, before the whole of Israel is destroyed. So the spirit of Allah can be satisfied.

Lets read what Tilman Tarach, a lawyer in Germany has to say about this matter:

Jordan’s territory is more than four times Israel’s, and its population density is only one sixth of Israel’s. The majority of the Palestinian refugees who fled during the wars of 1948 and 1967 live in Jordan, and about 60 percent of all Jordanians call themselves Palestinians.

Until 1967, the West Bank was occupied by Jordan: it was actually formally annexed, and the Palestinian Arabs living there were considered Jordanians (and, even today, they often hold a Jordanian passport). But, tellingly, none of them called for an intifada against Jordan to create a Palestinian state in the West Bank, and none of the Palestinian Arabs ever fought against the Egyptians in Gaza, who had occupied the Gaza Strip since 1948. The fighting has always and exclusively been directed against Israel’s existence.

When the PLO was founded in 1964, it did not call for the liberation of the territories occupied by Jordan and Egypt, but for the destruction of Israel; nobody within the PLO talked about a Palestinian state at that time, not even Ahmed Shukeiri, until 1967 chairman of the PLO.

1965: PLO boasted of killing 35 Jews

In Article 24 of its 1964 Charter, the PLO still explicitly renounced any sovereignty claims to the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The strategy did not change until after 1967, when these territories were no longer occupied by Jordan or Egypt but by Israel. As early as in 1965, the PLO boasted of having killed 35 Jews, and the number increased as the years went on.

This shows the dishonesty of the lamentation, repeated like a mantra, that the assaults on Jews are only a reaction to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, which took place only in the course of the Six Day War.

As is well known, that very same year Israel offered to negotiate the return of all the occupied territories in exchange for genuine peace, but at the Khartoum Conference the Arab states answered with the famous triple «no»: «no» to peace with Israel, «no» to recognition of Israel, «no» to negotiations with Israel. Tunisian president Habib Bourguiba was the only Arab leader who, as early as 1965, supported an agreement with Israel.

The Khartoum Conference restated the old position of the notorious mufti of Jerusalem: Not an inch of sacred Muslim soil would be allowed to make up a sovereign Jewish state. In this context, it should be recalled that Jimmy Carter was the first to propose a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip; not until then did the PLO seize this suggestion.

In reality, the only viable option, which not even the Palestinians can raise reasonable objections against, is the following: The West Bank (or large parts of it) is united with Jordan, and Gaza with Egypt. (When, in February 2008, the Palestinians overran the Egyptian border fortifications into Sinai, their rallying cry, addressed to the Egyptians, was: “We are one people.”)

According to surveys, 30 per cent of Palestinians living in the West Bank are in favor of such a solution. But it meets with resistance from the Hashemite dynasty of Jordan, which fears for the loss of the throne; it therefore renounced any territorial claims to the West Bank back in 1988. As reported by the Jordanian newspaper Al-Ghad, King Abdullah considered a confederation between Jordan and the West Bank a «conspiracy against his kingdom and against the Palestinians».

All the well-known Palestinian groups demonize such a plan: The creation of a second Palestinian state next to Jordan has always been just a pretense for them to conceal their anti-Israel policies, and the recognition of Jordan enlarged by the West Bank as the state of the Palestinians would deprive them of this pretense.

Their real objective has always been the destruction of Israel and, with their phony anger at the «Zionist arrogance», they would still pursue this goal even if the Jews of Israel retreated all the way to Masada or Tel Aviv.
