Skip to comments.Op-Ed: The state of the two-state solution
Posted on 01/11/2016 3:15:00 PM PST by Eleutheria5
The Two State solution (TSS) is dead but rather than bury it, the US and the EU want to embalm it, in the off chance that it can be brought to life in a decade or two. In the meantime they are doing their utmost to prevent Israel from building Jewish homes east of the armistice lines, including in Jerusalem. They do this in knowing violation of Israelâs rights.
Moshe Arens, a former Israel Ambassador to the US, Israel Defense Minister and Minister of Defense, noted in Haaretz, Israelâs version of the New York Times:
"These critics (of settlement construction) should be required to reread Article 6 of the League of Nations Mandate for Palestine, which states: âthe Administration of Palestine ... shall encourage â¦ close settlement by Jews on the land, including State lands and waste lands not required for public purposes.â The âPalestineâ referred to here is the entire area west of the Jordan River, including Judea and Samaria.
"Those who prefer to believe that this provision has lost relevance since the establishment of the United Nations and the termination of the League of Nations Palestine Mandate should refer to Article 80 of Chapter XII of the UN Charter.

Let the other Arab nations give them their land.
There is already a two state solution since the Muslim state of Jordan occupies 70% of mandatory “Palestine” — the Muslims already have invaded and taken over 57 nations. There’s plenty of Muslim countries for any Muslims currently occupying Israeli land. Stop wasting money arming the Muslim terrorists — and use those funds to move Muslims to Muslim countries. Especially since so many If them refuse to live peacefully with Israel or Christians or any other non- Muslims.
The liberals are still pining for the deal with the Antichrist.
Well, it is most certainly going to come; for it has been so prophesied.
And then, 7 years later, the Return of the Real Messiah.
If you gave Israel to the Palestinians and moved every Jew to Sinai, within 5 years Sinai would be a paradise, Israel a hellhole and the Palis whining that they need to turn Sinai into a two state solution.
Shows where my head is at.
Before I read it, I thought the article was about the political crisis inside the “United” States of America.
Partition California? Frisco and LA get their own homeland?
Re: “Frisco and LA get their own homeland?”
Only after terrorizing the rest of California with 75 years of bad movies and gay pride parades.
They did that because they were yearning to live in dignity, in a homeland of their own where they can shove gerbils up each other’s asses to their heart’s content.
