Two states, two sets of refugees
The Jerusalem Post ^ | 10/30/2013 | LYN JULIUS

Posted on 10/31/2013 5:23:52 PM PDT by Former Fetus

As the current negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians lurch forward, the burning question is: will Israel’s withdrawal from the West Bank put an end to Palestinian claims? According to an Israel TV scoop, the Palestinians in the current peace talks seem not to have budged an inch on their “right of return.”

Even if Israel is negotiated back to the 1967 lines, will the Palestinians renounce their “right of return”? This issue cannot be brushed aside as rhetoric: it is intimately bound with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s insistence that the Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish state.

>>SNIP<<

The single largest group of refugees created by the Arab-Israeli conflict was not Palestinian.

Almost a million Jews were forced out, not just from east Jerusalem and the West Bank, but Arab lands.

Their pre-Islamic communities were destroyed and their property seized without compensation.

Although over 200,000 Jews were resettled in the West, two sets of refugees exchanged places between Israel and the Arab world. Half the Jewish population are in Israel not because of the Nazis, but the Arabs.

>>SNIP<<

It is not enough for Netanyahu to insist on “two states for two peoples.”

The Israeli negotiators must display equal robustness on the question of refugees, and insist that an irrevocable exchange took place. Netanyahu’s strategy must be: two states, and two sets of refugees.

That's why the "two state" solution will not work. Annex Judea and Samaria now!

Not even for one second.

A little ‘peace and safety’ / ‘peace and security’ coming up the not-too-distant future, I should think.

A lot of them are pushing for it.

Not before someone attacks Israel and is soundly blown off the map.

Yes, I am leaning towards it happening in roughly that order.

The arabs will never give up until they have reclaimed all of Israel.

And then they start working on southern europe.

There will never be peace as long as the majority are muslims. Not with Jews, not with Christians, not with each other, not with anyone.

Israel will never “live in peace” as it were unless she had decisively defeated an enemy to the point that those in the world realized that she has the power and the will to destroy her enemies. That’s why the anti Christ will sign the peace treaty. Because he knows the power that Israel has and begins to fear her.
