The circus which accompanies the establishing of a new Israeli government finally formed after any elections cycle, planned or unexpected, comes this time in force beyond imagination. Usually there is coordination resulting in a single team arriving all carrying briefcases brimming with demands for new sacrifices Israel will be expected to make simply to allow these experts to meet with Mahmoud Abbas and his minions and receive another list of demands that Israel submit in order to attain a humbled attitude considered suitable for a meeting an Arab Palestinian delegations whose diplomacy is more insults and degradations than hospitable intercourse which usually accompanies normative mediations. This time the demands will be presented in surround sound as teams from the United States, the anticipatory fomenters, the United Nations, the European Union who come salivating for Israel’s destruction, and an outside agitator granting audience and treaties recognizing Mahmoud Abbas as the maker and seeker of peace granting him every comfort and recognition of his nightmarish nation without setting borders permitting Abbas to define as he desires. All these messengers bleat tired and tortured phrases which have been repeated for over twenty years to a point where they no longer have any real meaning. The most basic of these entreaties is the demand that Israel make some great offer which might ingratiate Israelis in the eyes of the leaders of the Arab Palestinians who already have proven their desire for peace as they have repeatedly asked for any and all these parties to intervene and plead their case in order that they might finally be granted the peace they so desperately desire. The problem is nobody has ever bothered to research and inquire of the Arab Palestinians exactly what their concept of an acceptable peace would require and what the Israelis might be required to sacrifice and perform in order for this peace to finally be attainable. Perhaps that might someday be the first step for these angels for peace who will be descending upon Israel to once again bless Israeli sacrifices even to the point of suicidal dispensations as a first step towards appeasement of the Arab unarticulated demands for peace.

 

As Israel has already offered the Arabs as much as 95% of Judea and Samaria, detached from their Jewish history by Jordan renaming the area to West Bank, all of Gaza, which is already in Arab hands since the disengagement in 2005, and all of East Jerusalem back in 2000 and again in 2002, both times with exchange of properties and lands to equate the final 5% of land and both times the Arab leadership simply walked out of the negotiations without even making a counter offer, demands for adjustment or any commentary, just refusing in the most impolite and insulting manner possible, silent dismissal as if such an offer were an insult. Perhaps the United States, United Nations, and European Union could, as long as the whole representation of the Western World and beyond are represented, take a different initial step and instead of starting with Israel take a stroll to Ramallah and simply inquire as to exactly what the Arab Palestinian leaders would demand of Israel in order to establish a fair and mutually acceptable and equally beneficial entertaining equal sacrifices and accommodations and once the great leaders who claim they are only in the Middle East to facilitate peace can finally establish the desired demands for a final settlement from Abbas and company and then perhaps there can be some fair and egalitarian resolution with both sides finally reaching a meeting of their minds. Somehow we here at Beyond the Cusp suspect that such a meeting would be revealing as the Arab leadership would either refuse to speak in specifics and decline to even approach a map, let alone speak of borders or perhaps they might surprise the world and actually state their actual demand, all of Israel with the Jews removed by any means necessary including another holocaust. Should the delegations from the United Nations, European Union and United States actually manage to gain a potentially acceptable offer from Mahmoud Abbas and the rest of the leadership which might be in any way presentable to the Israelis, then finally the crux of the real problem might finally be brought into the light. The reason that all the demands are always placed on Israel and never on the Arabs is because of a basic truth, the Israelis have proven their desire for peace while the Arabs have only proven their desire to destroy Israel by any means possible. History has shown this truth to the point that it is beyond the ability of any fair and honest observer to avoid, but these presumed messengers for peace are anything but fair or honest, they are coconspirators in the Arab conspiracy to destroy Israel and, if possible, the entirety of the Jewish People. The one thing which has become obvious is that should Israel fail and its population destroyed, then the potential future of the Jewish faith would be relegated to a near oblivion with small cores of religious Jews holding on to what would otherwise be a dead faith.

 

This was an integral and clearly stated goal by the Arab League and in the Khartoum Resolution of September 1, 1967 where the three no’s became the resolute avenue in the pursuit of the destruction of the Jewish State. The actual resolution which can be read here set forth what became known as the three no’s which stated that the Arab states would observe no formal peace treaty and no direct negotiations and no recognition of Israel. This agreement was broken only once when President Anwar Sadat of Egypt negotiated and reached a peace accord with Israel’s President Menachem Begin in what was the Camp David Accords ending the state of war between Egypt and Israel as of September 17, 1978. For breaking the three no’s Anwar Sadat paid with his life as he was assassinated on October 6, 1981, just over three years after reaching a peace with Israel when during the annual victory celebration he was shot along with a vast number of people in the formal reviewing stands including eleven others killed outright or suffered fatal wounds, including the Cuban ambassador to Egypt, an Omani general, and a Coptic Orthodox bishop and twenty-eight were wounded, including Vice President Hosni Mubarak, Irish Defense Minister James Tully, and four US military liaison officers. These three no’s have been observed via a specific series of accommodations and variations allowing for skirting the letter while accommodating the spirit of the Khartoum Resolution. The compliance to the three no’s of the Khartoum Resolution and the rest of its stipulations is behind the complete refusal of the Arabs to reach a peace despite the Israelis having at least twice meeting or exceeding the demands relayed by Yasser Arafat to President William Jefferson Clinton during the negotiations in Paris where Israeli President Ehud Barak which upon being told that the Israeli President had agreed to meet the conditions for peace even to splitting Jerusalem right along the Green Line boundary from before the 1967 Six Day War where Israel had liberated Jerusalem along with Judea and Samaria from Jordanian occupation he simply walked out refusing to even make a responding additional demand straight to his awaiting car which he had arranged to make ready just in the case that the Israelis might actually make the sacrifices he had thought beyond acceptable. Arafat showed no surprise likely because he realized that President Clinton might actually convince Israeli President Barak that this was the best chance for peace and the Israelis would make the necessary sacrifice for peace and so he knew he would need to beat a hasty prearranged retreat so as not to be caught in a compromised position and have to actually sign an agreement. It was the awaiting vehicle with the motor running and the driver at the wheel allowing Yasser Arafat to make his get-away before Secretary of State Madeline Albright could catch up with him and corner him demanding an explanation. Arafat was on his jet back to Jordan within an hour avoiding any potential interception by President Clinton and never did Arafat ever make an explanation to the American President. So, let these angels of peace alight on their gentle wings and draw from Mahmoud Abbas a specific description of what he would demand in order to make peace. When he refuses to make the same potentially problematic misstep made by Yasser Arafat and actually deceive these merchants of peace and give a response which he is assured in his mind the Israelis would never make such sacrifice for peace because he learned from the Arafat embarrassment of turning down the exact stipulations laid out for peace because the Israeli desire for peace actually made them stretch to their breaking-point in order to have peace, so Abbas will never present what he demands for peace because to do so would reveal that the Arabs do not want peace, they desire Israel’s extermination and nothing less.

Egypt Desires Renegotiation of Camp David Accords

Egyptian President Morsi and various other leaders of both the Egyptian government and the Muslim Brotherhood want to be allowed to renegotiate the terms of the Camp David Accords which describe the terms of the peace which has existed between Egypt and Israel since their signing. The Egyptians claim that the accords are unfair to Egypt as they have limits over the number and kind of military units they are allowed to place within the Sinai Peninsula. The area is divided into three areas with the closest to Israel allowing only border policing and no armor, artillery or other heavy arms. The other zones are degrees less restrictive as they define areas further from the border with Israel. The Egyptians are quick to point out that Israel has only the most minimal of restrictions which apply only to areas bordering Egypt. Egypt is planning on insisting they be allowed full sovereignty and use over every inch of their lands including the Sinai Peninsula. This sounds fair if you only consider the limitations on the deployment of forces. But what is the whole picture and what kind of picture does it paint?

 

What is being ignored by the Egyptian demands is the small matter that the Camp David Accords were made because Israel was willing to return the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula in exchange for a lasting peace with the limitations on Egypt deploying troops along their mutual border as a sign of good intentions and also to prevent the Egyptians massing troops for an invasion again as was the case in both 1967 and 1973 before the Six Day War and the Yom Kippur War. So, the question that begs to be answered is if Egypt wishes to do away with their side of the agreements from the Camp David Accords, are they also planning on allowing Israel to renege on their part in the deal and reoccupy the Sinai Peninsula? Somehow I doubt that Egypt wishes to return to the exact situation which existed at the outset of the negotiations of the Camp David Accords. Apparently the new Egyptian leadership has forgotten that the Camp David Accords were negotiated with Egypt not exactly holding the position of strength as they had lost two wars with Israel and because of their losing these wars they initiated, Israel had taken control over the entire Sinai Peninsula and was on the eastern edge of the Suez Canal.

 

What is obvious by this maneuver by Egypt is they are intending to present the situation as that they were generous and gave concessions to Israel about troop staging in the Sinai Peninsula simply out of the goodness of their hearts and to give evidence of their peaceful intentions and magnanimous generosity. They would like the renegotiations to begin with them already possessing the entire Sinai Peninsula and adjust everything after the Israeli return of this rather significant piece of land. The Egyptians are painting a picture where Israel sacrificed nothing and Egypt gave away the farm. The truth is Israel could have kept the Sinai Peninsula and was under no measure forced to negotiate with Egypt. Israel, as the attacked nation, was allowed by International Law to retain all of the lands she had gained from the wars imposed upon her by her Arab neighbors. This would include the Golan Heights, the Gaza Strip, all of Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem (West Bank and East Jerusalem) and the Sinai Peninsula. Instead, Israel offered to return the Sinai Peninsula and Gaza Strip to Egypt for a peace treaty with some provisions that would guarantee Israeli safety from future Egyptian aggressions. The Israelis offered Jordan the West Bank in exchange for a peace treaty but Jordan made peace and released their claims to the West Bank only to, years later, renege and claim they had instead promised them to Yasser Arafat to form a Palestinian State. So, Israel made a very significant sacrifice for peace with Egypt, they returned the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula to Egyptian control. This little remembered fact punches an enormous hole in the Israel has never given back any land cry which is constantly rolled out vis-à-vis the Palestinians. Check a map and you will notice that the Sinai Peninsula is a rather hefty chunk of land and is many times again larger than the West Bank.

 

So, the question the Egyptians had best be ready to answer is are they willing to return to the situation exactly as it was before the Camp David Accords were negotiated and return all of the Sinai Peninsula to Israeli control and start the negotiations all over again? My bet is they wish to have their obligations erased while leaving everything surrendered by the Israelis in place. This would be typical Arab style negotiations. They seem to believe that all negotiations should take the form of what is theirs is theirs and what is yours is theirs. They seem to demand to eat their cake and still have an entire cake left for the next helping. Egypt is demanding to renegotiate their contribution for peace while keeping everything the Israeli contributed for peace. One must wonder if later they will want to renegotiate the peace again demanding Israel surrender the Negev for continued peace. Maybe Israel should agree to negate the Camp David accords and just keep the Sinai Peninsula and half of the control over the Suez Canal. Do you think Egypt would like that arrangement and really restart the entire negotiations we refer to as the Camp David Accords?
