It should be clear to everyone on the face of the planet by now that the Zionists of Israel have absolutely no intention whatsoever of ever allowing a Palestinian state to exist.
For years, successive Israeli governments and their allies have patronisingly talked about ‘negotiations’ and ‘accords’ and ‘road maps to statehood’; none of them have been worth the paper they’ve been written on. Instead of having a sovereign Palestinian state, all the Zionists have given the Palestinians is death and misery as they steal their lands literally from under them. When talks fail because the Palestinians demand the return of their lands and the right of return of the Palestinian people, the Zionists blame the Palestinians for not having a sovereign state by arguing that the Palestinians had the opportunity but refused to take it.
At the very same instant that the Zionists talk of peace and a Palestinian state, they are taking over Palestinian land and building Israeli-only ‘settlements’ on them. Many of these ‘settlements’ are actually substantial modern townships interconnected by highways that only Israelis are allowed to use. Most of these ‘settlements’ are protected by armed ‘settlers’ who, in turn, are protected by the IDF. Meter by meter the Palestinian people are being pushed from their lands in one of the slowest and most insidious invasions in history; one that began over sixty years ago.
The continued occupation of the West Bank by Israel is in contravention of UN resolution 242 which called for the complete withdrawal of Israel from the West Bank after the 1967 war. The occupation of Jerusalem in 1967 and de facto annexation to Israel in 1980 was declared null and void by the UN in resolution 478, yet today the Israelis are evicting Palestinians from their Jerusalem homes, homes that they have lived in for years, and allowing Zionists to take over those homes. Instead of withdrawing, the Zionists have inundated the West Bank with an ever-increasing number of ‘settlers’. Not only do they steal land to build their ‘settlements’ on but they intimidate neighbouring Palestinians by shooting at them, beating them, and by destroying their farmlands and olive groves.
Despite the flagrant flouting of United Nations resolutions by the Israelis, the US and the West continue to directly support Israel as they insidiously continue their invasion and occupation of the West Bank. There will be no ‘freezes’ on settlement building, or even a slow-down of settlement construction as demanded by Obama as a prelude to even more ‘talks’, there will be no talks, and, if there are, you just know they won’t amount to anything.
And what of the Gaza? What does the future hold for the Palestinian people imprisoned in that hell hole? What’s the Zionist endgame for the Gaza Strip? Isolated both geographically and politically from the West Bank, there seems to be no future at all; yet the situation there cannot go on forever. Their future is entirely in the hands of the Israelis. The Zionists cannot insidiously take over the Gaza as they have the West Bank. They have already tried that but it proved too costly for the Zionists to maintain. They withdrew, but they knew that one day they would return. Squeezing the Gazan people with sanctions and deprivations, the Israelis have embarked on a deliberate program of provocation and intimidation designed specifically to induce the Palestinians holed up in the Gaza to rebel and resist Israeli aggression against them to a point where the Israelis can use the situation as an excuse to ultimately invade the Strip and begin deporting the Palestinian people there to either the Sinai or Jordan.
At the moment the Zionists are content to slowly takeover the West Bank and ignore entirely the calls of the West and the Palestinians to stop building. Already the West have given up calling for a complete withdrawal of Israelis from the West Bank and now the Zionists will simply play for time and accuse the Palestinians of making outrageous demands that can’t possibly be met thus enabling the Israelis to continue accusing the Palestinians of rejecting statehood by making these ‘unreasonable’ demands.
With the West Bank now secure in Israeli hands, all the Israelis need to do is wait for the appropriate time to have the war they want with Iran to provide the cover for them to eventually take over the Gaza Strip and occupy south Lebanon up to the Litani River.
There will never be a separate Palestinian state; the Zionists won’t allow it and they know the Palestinians will always refuse to accept a state created under the impossible conditions that the Israelis offer. The only solution now is the One State bi-national solution – a solution that the United Nations must insist on and support; something that should have been done years ago and is the only conclusion that there can ever be for an impasse that has gone on for far too long and caused the deaths directly and indirectly of millions over the years.
The invasion of the West Bank must cease. The world community must insist on a resolution to the conflict now and the only resolution there can possibly be is the One State bi-national solution on terms dictated by the people of the world that will ensure equality for both Jews and Arabs.
