Peace Not Possible with Palestinian Authority, but Conflict Resolution Is Possible After PA is Gone
A word prior to the elections two weeks from today in Israel...
You can't expect a peace where everyone sits under his tree when one party is dedicated to jihad. You have to root out the terrorists and then what is left is people. Just people. And no average person should be subjected to the rule of despots, dictators and or terrorists. It is clear that there is no better government in the Middle East for civil liberties than Israel. Combine that with the idea that a naturalized Palestinian Arab does not have to lose his home, and you have the best possible option for the Palestinian people. The annexation of all the disputed territories. Best possible remaining option, we should say, as the theory of a Two State solution has clearly and utterly failed.
Did the USA and UK ask Iraq post Saddam Hussein to give up land for a new Kurdistan? No. Neither should any nation ask Israel to give up its land for a Palestine. Stop abandoning the Palestinian right to live in a free country, for the free right to form a terrorist state. One is sensible and kind. One is foolhardy and evil.
Now that the Palestinians have begun unilateral moves hoping to establish sovereignty, it's important to change the way we treat the Palestinian Authority. You are either for Israel or for a Palestinian State. You cannot seriously support both any longer, the illegitimacy of that fallacy is clear. Its one or the other. I don't care even if you are a voter in the State of Israel. You are voting against the Zionist project if you are trying to support a Palestinian State West of the Jordan River.
Stop opposing Zionism, stop supporting a Palestinian State. Start supporting an end to the conflict that will allow the IDF to run security for all peoples West of the River Jordan.
There are those who support the annexation of "Area C" in response to PA's UN bid. If you wish to annex the Jewish settlements to increase the security of the people living there, by all means. Better to annex something than nothing at all. Yet if you wish to annex as a reaction to the PA UN move, that path is not necessary, when a fuller mode of conflict resolution is available. Plus, if in the context of an Oslo term such an annexation is done, it still implies that other areas West of the River Jordan are to remain up for sale to the anti Zionist Palestinian Authority. That is unacceptable. As long as Israel holds on to the Oslo Accords, and its terminology, peace will be far away. The Oslo Accords are idolatry, and its terminology the dust of idols.
When the first intifada began, and Israel decided to ignore the abuse of the Oslo Accords, the Oslo Accords were no longer a marriage document, but a bill of enslavement to a millstone of terror, commonly known as the Palestinian Authority. The reactions not just of terrorists, but many of those who wished to be kind to the cruel with the blood of the innocent. Two decades of sacrifices for a peace that the PA itself does not want. All these have removed the moral right of anyone to continue to call the Oslo Accords, a peace agreement.
From the first Intifada, by International Law it can be argued that the Oslo Accords became defunct. Yet government after government after government have told us, we have to strive for a peace that is not peace. Avoid admission of the truth of the desolation caused by the Oslo Accords, lest that lead to true peace.
Do those who supported the Oslo Accords in the 1990's now weep, "I did not give away the bride, Israel, to be abused forever by her husband, the PA. Why does she not flee from his side?"
We have to annul this relationship with the PA, shatter the idol of the Oslo Accords once and for all, and then return to our first national husband, the G-d of Israel.
Let the next government of Israel announce: "Though the Oslo Accords were well intended, they were violated a thousand ways and made illegitimate and unholy. We do not accept the legitimacy of continued support of the Palestinian Authority and we oppose any effort to legalize that failed entity. We will continue to seek to live in peace with our Palestinian neighbors. But if it is to be done, West of the River Jordan, it can only be done beneath the democratic flag of Israel." May it soon be so, by the grace of G-d.
