Why Palestinian Arabs Will Never Accept a State

 

There are an almost countless number of reasons for why but perhaps just the top few is all which will be required to set the record straight and perhaps show people the reality which they have thus far failed to seek out. We are not trying to claim that people are blind, willfully or otherwise, simply that people are busy individuals and will often take the most immediate explanation set before them, especially if it is one echoed endlessly by those supporting one side with funds to soak media with their version, one we call out as lies. We promise that we are not going to go into the history of who came first or who conquered whom and all the other usual Zionistic arguments, we will use modern real life reasons. These are reasons which can be recognized by studying the history of negotiations and statements by Palestinian Arab leaders. What it breaks down to in the end is that the Palestinian Arab leadership has a singular reason for their being, and it has nothing to do with an Arab state, it has to do with the destruction of the Jewish State. That is why they spent over 1.2 billion shekels promoting terrorism in 2017.

 

We could begin with the heart of the matter, but what fun would that be. So instead, we will begin with Hamas. The Hamas Charter is written as are all Islamic documents for claim of lands, from the perspective that the history of the area begins with their conquest and before that the lands were inhabited by beings who are inconsequential. Islamic history is written from a perspective where all history expanded with Islamic conquest and those who existed before have no relevance. There was no Persian Empire, no Egyptian Empire, no Byzantine Empire, no Roman Empire, no Indian Civilization, no Berber Lands, nothing came before Islam. That is extremely convenient if your plan is to inevitably conquer the entire world, convert every person in it to your newly formed faith, execute all who show the slightest sign of resistance or insincerity, impress strict oppressive rules making all other forms of religion or governance illegal under penalty of death and, with any hope and good fortune, in some distant future allow for expansion of knowledge beyond the limitations of the only permitted knowledge being that which is within the Quran. Strict Islamic rule as Hamas would impose would not permit science beyond the development of weaponry to be used for further conquest. With history starting with the Islamic conquest of the Holy Lands, there can be no other civilization or peoples who came before them and thus only they have the rightful ownership of the Holy Lands. That means that before the year of 634 on the Gregorian Calendar, which corresponds to the year 13 on the Hijri Islamic Calendar, there were no inhabitants in the lands of the Holy Lands. This is very interesting as the Islamic faith claim the Jesus was a Muslim, Moses was a Muslim, Avraham was a Muslim, Noah was a Muslim as well as Adam and Eve being Muslims, yet the Holy Lands did not exist before the year 634. If you demand a clarification on this discrepancy, the answer you get is that though there were some more advanced and developed individuals such as the above all of which recognized the Quran as the literal word of Allah and that Allah was the One responsible for all creation and the rest of humanity were of little consequence as they either were idolaters or they followed some corrupted form of the Quran. The Torah of Judaism and both the Old Testament and New Testament recognized as such by Christians are all corrupted and fraudulent versions of the Quran and the Quran was required because all others had lost their way and varied of the straight and defined path defined by the Quran. Thus, despite Moses having led the Israelites (Jews) to the Promised Lands, there was no history of consequence before the arrival of the Islamic invaders. Below is a map of the paths taken by the Islamic forces when conquering the Holy Lands.

This is why the Palestinian Arabs claim that the Jews never had a nation where Israel stands today, that there was never any Temple of Solomon or Second Temple. But there are other statements in the Quran which throw this idea into more of a conflicted view and that the Jews are to inherit the Holy Lands. One such reference of the promise or grant of the Land to the Israelites found in the Qur’ān is, “We said then unto the Israelites: ‘Dwell in the Land.’” (wa-qulnā min ba‘dihī li-Banī Isrā’īla ’skunu ’l-arḍ) This promise comes towards the end of Chapter Seventeen. Much more research into the Quranic verses which denote the Jews prophesy to live in the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea can be read here. There is one difficulty with these promises made in the Quran; they were all parts of the Mecca Quran and not the Medina Quran. The importance can be read about in a brief description of the differences and reasons for there apparently being two separate and quite contradictory set of writings and why for outsiders it is difficult to understand which parts of the Quran are still applicable and which have been abrogated, replaced. Because the references to the Jewish homeland coming from the Mecca version of the Quran, many Muslims believe that the only writings which matter are the Medina verses of the Quran believing that the entirety of the Mecca Quran were abrogated, not just those which were contradictory.

 

The Quran states in verse 2:106, “Whatever verse we abrogate or cause it to be forgotten, we bring a better verse than it or like it,” and in verse 16:101 the Quran states, “And if we exchange one verse in a place of another verse, and Allah knows what he sent down.” Abrogations were written into the understanding and commentaries on the Quran by Ibn Kathir. The abrogation has become a tool used by Muslims to reject anything they find inconvenient from the Quran, especially if the verse in question can be relegated to have been part of the initial writings of the Mecca Quran. Hamas and much of the Arab and Muslim worlds have decided that in order to speed the coming of their messiah, the Mahdi, they know tradition is they must fight the Jews and eradicate them first. This is another reason they fight against Israel existing as the largest concentration of Jews residing in a nation are in Israel as Israel has surpassed the United States in number of Jews. They also know that should Israel be defeated, the remainder of the Jews will largely cease to exist within a few generations. As far as destroying Israel, the Muslims believe all they need do is destroy Zionism as once Zionism dies, then the Jews in Israel will be forced to simply have a western democracy with all the weaknesses. Once Israel is made into simply a democracy, then the Palestinian Arabs can simply demand to be allowed to join melting everyone into a one state solution. Then, by using a simple demand for their relatives to join them in family unification, they can become the majority. Once the Arab Muslims have a majority, or possibly before, then, they can vote Israel into becoming an Islamic state and then force the Jews to convert, leave or die. That would be the end of the Jewish State. This is why the Palestinian Arabs were upset about President Trump recognizing Jerusalem as the Israeli Capital.

 

These are the reasons beyond simply that the Muslims also believe that any lands once conquered by Islam must never be permitted to fall from Islamic rule. The other reasons above are just additional justifications for why the Jews have no claim to the land of Israel. This is what is behind every claim the Palestinian Arabs make, be they Hamas, Islamic Jihad or the Palestinian Authority (PA) which is nothing more than the PLO disguised as a peace partner. There is no design for the making of a Palestinian Arab state, just plans for the destruction of Israel. The PA never modified their charter which they had promised President Clinton and was verified presumably by letters and a witnessed vote where the witness did not speak Arabic and thus was unaware that the vote was to appoint a committee to consider whether or not to amend the charter, a committee which was never formed. The end is the charter remains unchanged from its 1964 writing when Jordan held the Shomron and Egypt held Gaza and the “Palestine” they were to liberate was all of Israel inside the Green Line. Their idea back in 1964 was to conquer all of Israel and turn it over to Jordan. When the Arabs held the areas they today claim to desire their state, there was no clamoring for a new state called Palestine. The demand for a state began in 1967 around the middle of the second week of June when Israel liberated the lands occupied by Jordan after Jordan entered the Six Day War on the second day of the war believing the Egyptian and Syrian claims of victories and closing on Tel Aviv and Jordan wanted in on the destruction of Israel. They found out that the Egyptians and Syrians were not exactly winning and neither did Jordan.

 

Yes, Israel was occupying the lands they held west of the Jordan River and that land always was to be part of Israel. None of that matters to the Palestinians; they are the bludgeon which the Muslim world uses to end the Jewish State. Hamas desires a little more and the cleansing of the Jews from the planet once they have destroyed Israel. This is another reason that Israel must continue to exist as without Israel the Jews would face a threat as anti-Semitism grows as it has in Europe and without Israel the Jews would again have nowhere for them to run. That is but one reason for the continued existence of Israel but there are far more pertinent reasons of which the strongest of all is the promise by Hashem to return the Jewish People to their lands in the Middle East and even the date of 1948 was predicted by the Prophets way back over two-thousand years ago. The reality became evident even to President William Jefferson Clinton during the Camp David negotiations and everything that followed and he was willing to tell the media so when he related how Arafat simply would reject every offer and never offer a counter proposal and simply demanded that Israel offer more. When Israel, Ehud Barak, came back with an offer even Clinton could hardly believe was being offered, all Arafat did was refuse, return to Ramallah and a few months later release the Second Intifada. That has been the one constant from Yasser Arafat to Mahmoud Abbas and will continue on to whoever follows Abbas. It will not matter who is the next version of Arafat the one constant will remain, they will say “no” to every offer of a state. The reality is there are only two solutions to the Arab Israeli conflict, either the Arabs destroy Israel or Israel declares sovereignty of all of the Shomron and send any Palestinian with a connection to terrorism from these lands, allow the remainder of Arabs to choose between remaining as resident aliens with no political rights or accept a buy out with a relocation bonus and promise to never return to the lands of Israel.

 

As far as permitting the Palestinian Arabs to become Israeli citizens, if such should ever become something considered viable, the means and qualifiers will need to be determined at that point in time. As for the immediate future, as long as the world desires the destruction of Israel and back anything the Arabs demand, then there will not be a solution. When the Israelis finally do reach the point where they no longer are willing to continue a fruitless pursuit of a settlement which can never be accomplished, then Israel will be required to make a final decision. Either Israel will declare her borders and leave an Arab region beyond without reaching any actual agreement or to annex all the lands which are truly Israeli under International Law and then decide how to treat the Arabs they decide may remain. This will only come to fruition once Israel decides that her own existence and future is far more important than relations with naysayers whose deep-seated desire is to watch the destruction of Israel. We have an idea what will bring this day closer, that day will come once Israel realizes that her existence is more important than being accepted by Europeans or anybody else for that matter. When Israel is ready to consider itself over the rest of the world, then, perhaps, she will finally do exactly what is required to secure her safety, and that includes the entirety of the Shomron allowing the Jordan Valley and Jordan River to be her defendable eastern border. Holding these highlands also permits for long-range radar pickup of incoming aircraft from everywhere east of Israel, as without the Shomron highlands, then eastward radar would be limited not providing sufficient warning of incoming aircraft. That is the last reasoning, military necessities dictating the realities of what can be accepted. The Arab Palestinians are playing for Israel’s destruction, why should Israel play for anything less. Compromise had failed, that is the final reality which need be faced. The other truth is that the far left will never realize the truth and will always claim that by giving and giving peace will come, and they are right, but the peace of the end of Israel should never be an acceptable outcome.

January and the Countdown to the Next War on Israel

Come the New Year and we will find a full frontal assault on Israeli political leadership pushing them to accept the latest and greatest United States plan to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian Peace Process. Thus far the discussions with the Israelis have mostly been centered around explaining the great benefits, form a Palestinian state and still pay attention to providing for Israel’s security to the IDF top brass and exchanging ideas trying to reach some mutual middle ground. All of the actions so far have been exercises performed simply to mollify the Israeli leadership softening them up for the coming offensive. The United States has reserved fifty rooms at a luxury hotel in Jerusalem plus three floors of a conference hotel just to house computers, maps, and other displays and visuals on which to display all the great and wonderful features of the latest and greatest final solution to the Israel problem concerning the risks that a Palestinian state might cause. It is my hope that these computer simulations and other technical equipment planned to be implemented to sell this version of the Saudi Plan to Israel will function as well as the initial rollout of the program for Obamacare. These rooms have been initially reserved for three weeks but it is doubtful their reservations could not be extended into the future probably to the very last day of the Obama Presidency if that is what it takes to force this plan on the Israelis.

 

There have been some leaks and what has become known is telling and very frightening. The biggest issue for the Israelis is their being able to monitor the Jordan Valley thus controlling what can be transported into the Palestinian state keeping them from importing heavy weapons, rockets, explosives and terrorists and their tools of the trade. The difference between the Israelis and the plan that Secretary of State Kerry is selling concerning the Jordan Valley is basic, Israel insists on being able to permanently station troops to monitor this border or at least until the Palestinians cease to pose a threat. The Kerry plan places Israelis initially on the border then after two to three years the Israeli contingent will be decreased and dual partnering with Israeli and third party, probably United States forces, will take over monitoring. This will continue with the Israeli forces being replaced by third party forces until the force is purely third party with no Israeli presence. The theory is that these troops will slowly, as conditions permit, turn the border over to Palestinian forces allowing the formation of the Palestinian state to be fully realized. The initial reaction from Palestinian spokespersons has basically warned that they would attack any non-Islamic forces placed on their holy lands whether they be Israelis or any third party. They guaranteed that no foreign forces would be tolerated after the agreement has been reached. Somehow the plan to implement the American plan only addresses forcing Israel to accept the terms of the agreement and very little attentions has been shown about convincing the Palestinians to accept the plan. This may become a problem at some point.

 

One might ask why there is no provisions to convince the Palestinians to accept the plan. There is a solidly good reason this is the case. Secretary Kerry learned from his earlier trip where he first met with Prime Minister Netanyahu and agreed to present some of the Israeli positions to Chairman Abbas to get the Palestinian reaction. After meeting with Netanyahu and the Israelis Secretary Kerry agreed to meet reporters and hold a short press conference. During the press conference Secretary Kerry claimed that good progress had been accomplished in his meetings with the Israelis and he expressed his assurances that after his meeting with Abbas that most of the difficulties would be behind them and an agreement might be within reach. Secretary Kerry then took the short drive to Ramallah and met with Chairman Abbas who immediately went off on Secretary Kerry rejecting every single aspect of the plan and then denounced the entire plan before the press after Secretary Kerry had returned to Israel. This left both Secretary Kerry and President Obama facing a problem, how could this be turned to make it appear that Israel had been the side causing the negotiations to fall short when Secretary Kerry had already stated that the Israelis had met him at least part way and it was evident after Chairman Abbas gave his interview to the media that it was he representing the Palestinians that had totally rejected everything. Not to fear as the Kerry-Obama team will not make this mistake again. They will now faithfully toe the Palestinian line and attempt to push every single element of the Palestinians down the Israelis throats. The mistake that will still be waiting for Secretary Kerry and company is that even should he manage to get the Israelis to agree to everything except the full right of return for the over five million refugees and descendants from the 1948 war to destroy the nascent state of Israel launched by multiple Arab nation’s armies, the Palestinians will still refuse to accept the deal as it will not fulfill their requirements, even if Israel agreed to allow a partial right of return of say two million refugees and descendants.

 

That leads to what would a plan have to include in order to have the Palestinians accept it. The first item is that whatever else the peace plan might contain, if it did not erase the Jewish nature of the state of Israel it would be unacceptable. This has been made evident and the Palestinians have become so confident that the world will back them to any degree that they have even began to state these truths in English as well as in Arabic. Over the past few months the negotiators, other high officials of the Palestinian Authority, officers from Fatah and others have come out and stated bluntly that there is nothing which will persuade them to accept Israel as the home for the Jews. They have stated that they will accept allowing the Jews to accept Dhimmi status and to live at the convenience of the Palestinian Muslims. They have even stated that they would guarantee not to allow any harm to befall the Jews as long as the Jews knew their place and did not offend them in any way. There was no explanation as to exactly what the Jews would need to do in order not to provoke the Palestinians’ wrath. The minimal conditions which the Palestinian leadership has defined will not allow for any settlement of the conflict ever, let alone in the near future. This may be the saving grace for Israel and her peoples as it is very possible that Prime Minister Netanyahu and much of the Israeli leadership, both political and from the military, will sellout and agree to conditions which would spell a deadly threat to the ability of Israel to continue to operate as a nation free of direct threats. Israeli leadership appears ready to allow the Palestinian state to exist right up to large sections of the Green Line, the 1948 Armistice Lines, which would allow for line of sight attacks with rockets and other weapons even to the heart of Tel Aviv. It is ironic that the saving grace for the nation of Israel is that the Palestinians are dead set on destroying the Jewishness of Israel through the negotiations, something that even the Obama-Kerry team would not try to sell to Israel. Then again, they just might but they could not expect to succeed. There has been one series of very troubling statements made a short while back where more than one Palestinian leadership where they intimated that Secretary of State Kerry had given Chairman Abbas and other leaders a signed letter guaranteeing that Secretary Kerry would force the Israelis to accept and agree to every last item on their pre-conditions list and necessary guarantees which they have listed knowing that they are impossible demands. That is the one guarantee, the Palestinians will always have one more demand no matter how many demands Israel may be willing to grant. Why is it so frightening having to rely on the greed and obstinacies of the Palestinians to save the Israeli people from their spineless government leadership? Irony is that had the Palestinians rational expectations and leadership they could have had their state almost any time over the past fifty years and would probably be living with a level of affluence unknown by the neighboring Arab states.
