The Two State Solution, Israelís Swan Song
Coach is Right ^ | 8/3/14 | Kevin O'Neil

Following is a letter from Coach is Right contributor Kevin O’Neil to his Member of Parliament in London

25th July 2014.

Dear Mr. Gyimah,

Thank you for your letter of the 17th July 2014.

I am pleased to read that ‘Britain will stand with Israel as it seeks to bring to justice those responsible’ for the murdering of the three Israeli boys, and that you found the act ‘appalling and inexcusable’.

However, within the body of your letter you state that you support ‘a two-state solution’ with a divided Jerusalem. Are you aware that you are supporting the establishing of a situation which will ensure that such ‘appalling’ incidents will be a regular occurrence? Please understand that the naively named ‘two-state solution’ is a recipe for certain disaster and the continuance of this problem into the distant future.

The Israelis have repeatedly made it clear that they are longing to live in peace. They are not the obstacle to peace. By contrast, the Palestinians have stated equally clearly that they will work for the destruction of Israel as a Jewish State, they have never retreated from this position and it continues to be a central tenet of the Palestinian Authority. How do you live in ‘security and prosperity’ alongside a people devoted to your destruction? This is the true obstacle and the Gordian’s Knot which prevents peace in the region.

Gaza is the perfect example of what your policies would produce if put into effect. Firstly, Israel is pressured to withdraw from an area and, as a direct and rapid result of the withdrawal that area becomes a launch site for terrorism. Make no mistake, the exact same pattern would occur if Israel were to withdraw from the so-called West Bank and from the...

All religions have fanatical cults but only Islam is a cult of fanatics. Except Islam, all religions today can exist side by side with conflict compatible with ordered society. Odd how progressives can’t get their heads around this simple observation.

One State? Borders? Citizenship?

If the Palestinians want peace all they need do is stop trying to kill people in the name of their “Religion of Peace.”

This misery has gone on for a long time and it looks like it is going to continue to go on for a long time. Two peoples claim the same land and not many of either group want to live together. I guess there will be some sort of resolution when both sides have access to nuclear weapons and blow the place up.

What can we do to solve the problem? Not much. One thing we can do is to offer a place to live here in America to any Jews who don't want to continue living in the middle of that situation. I know that many Israelis will not accept such an offer, but we should try to help the ones who might be tired of all this.

As long as Israel is surrounded by muslim countries, full of muslim fanatics who’s only purpose is to destroy anything that isn’t islam, they will never know peace.

-— All religions have fanatical cults but only Islam is a cult of fanatics. Except Islam, all religions today can exist side by side with conflict compatible with ordered society -—

True.

It seems to me that the Founders overlooked this reality, perhaps never anticipating a significant Mohammedan population in our country.

Still, Mohammedanism could still be suppressed as seditious, as it mandates anti-constitutional Sharia law.

Here's the two state solution: give the Palestinians a spot of paradise in the desert of the Sinai Peninsula. The country of “New Palestine” would be a gated community the size of Gaza and the West Bank. It will have a double security fence, perimeter road for roving patrols, day/night surveillance cameras, and heavily mined to keep the Palestinian swine inside. The Egyptian Army will provide perimeter security to keep the psychos within the confines of New Palestine.

even if you make them Israeli’s and make them Israeli citizens they will still seek Sharia law and the death of the jews.
