The Middle East “Two State Solution” Delusion

Following Obama’s declaration to the Turkish Parliament that he was all in for the two-state-solution, he doubled down in Cairo, Egypt on June 4, 2009 when he said: "For decades, there has been a stalemate: two peoples with legitimate aspirations, each with a painful history that makes compromise elusive. It is easy to point fingers. But if we see this conflict only from one side or the other, then we will be blind to the truth: the only resolution is for the aspirations of both sides to be met through two states, where Israelis and Palestinians each live in peace and security." The Muslim Perspective: The concept of a Palestinian state was created with the birth of Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) at the first Arab League summit in Cairo in 1964. But in reality, the “Palestinian people” do not exist. According to PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein, is a 1977 interview with the Dutch newspaper “Trouw”: “The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct 'Palestinian people' to oppose Zionism.” So, as with most things regarding Islam, their claim and the purported history it is based on are lies. The obvious implication is that the Muslims are not genuinely interested in a two-state-solution,... The real objective of the Muslims in their unceasing hostilities is not to establish a Palestinian state next to Israel; instead it is to wage Quran- and Hadith-mandated jihad against Jews.

If the Palestinians were in any way determined to form a “state”, as opposed to the armed camp they now are, they would take internal steps to create a real, functioning parliament and head of state, and proceed to set up the framework of government infrastructure such as roads, urban planning, and a school system that provided education rather than an indoctrination in anarchy. They would be negotiating with OTHER Arab nations to provide the goods and services they could not generate internally, and be creating the means to earn foreign exchange by internal industry. In short, become much more similar to their Israeli neighbors, and become builders, not destroyers.

If, by some stroke of international diplomacy and successful application of compelling legal means through the UN, all the Jews could be removed from Israel, and the land turned back to the “Palestinians”, the entire region would revert to the desert wasteland it was in 1947 and before. With amazing rapidity.

And the condition of the “Palestinians” would not be improved one iota.

To decree that the “Palestinians” were now a recognized state, is the moral equivalent of handing the car keys and side arms with plenty of ammunition to a rebellious thirteen-year-old juvenile delinquent.
