Yesterday Caroline Glick posted this article on her website: Dumping irrationality as a national strategy. I like Glick because she is no fan of the so-called land for peace Two-State Policy that robs Israel and Jews of their national heritage. I haven’t read Glick’s book entitled “The Israeli Solution: A One-State Plan for Peace in the Middle East”. From those I have read that talk about Glick’s “Manifesto” advocating a One-State Solution for Israel and the Arabs that call themselves Palestinian, they imply the Glick advocates outright annexation of Judea-Samaria and Gaza and then give the Arabs full citizenship. I am not so sure I am on board with that path, but I would love reading her book to see if her thoughts do have an actual solution. At any rate the Obama-Kerry solution of forcing Israel to give up land and release murdering Islamic terrorists from prison is definitely an unacceptable path for Israel’s existence and to perpetuate Jewish heritage.

 

If President Barack Hussein Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have their way this land for peace garbage will also take away the eternal holy city of the Jews in Jerusalem and the Temple Mount. History and the Bible are a good enough argument that the lands Islamic terrorists desire to usurp to create a Jew-hating nation are very important geographical locations to all of Judaism. In Glick’s article she is particularly scathing because to appease the Obama Administration Israel has been forced to release Jew-killing prison convicts back into the society governed autonomously by the Palestine Authority (PA) which is headed by Mahmoud Abbas who is also the Chairman of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) which was inherited (or usurped) after Yasser Arafat died (Russian autopsy revelations). 

 

Glick’s article from yesterday is also very critical of the Centrist (though Left leaning in my opinion – Justice Minister) Tzipi Livni. Livni is determined to aid the Arabs in establishing a Palestinian State. She has recently developed a Two-State Solution plan that may be tempting for the Israeli Right to accept. Her solution is a population transfer that is basically a land-swap between Jewish Settlements and Arab populations that are in the minority in Judea-Samaria. For greater clarity this means moving Jews that are surrounded by Arabs into Judea-Samaria areas that are preeminently Jewish. And moving Arabs out of the preeminently Jewish areas of Judea-Samaria into areas that are already an Arab majority. Livni’s plan is astonishingly similar to Foreign Minister Avignor Lieberman’s plan which was roundly criticized as being a plan from an extreme Right Wing Israeli. I will be interested how Livni’s plan is received since she has a reputation of pro-Palestinian and more centrist than Right Wing. Incidentally neither Lieberman nor Livni would describe their plans as a population transfer as much as a workable Two-State Solution.

 

Frankly I believe the Arabs that call themselves Palestinian view of a plan for sovereignty will neither a Two-State or One-State Plan, rather their plan is more akin to a Palestinian State Plan that eradicates Jews and Israel altogether. You can go to Palestinian Media Watch to read and see the Jew-hatred and the vitriol against the lives and existence of Israel and Jews in particular sponsored with PA, Hamas and Hezbollah funds.

Livni Team Thinking Outside the Box: Swap Israeli Arabs for Settlers

By Yori Yanover

A senior Israeli source close to the peace negotiations has told Maariv that Israel has proposed to the U.S. a population exchange with the Palestinian state that will not require a physical transfer.

 

The idea is to turn over the “Arab triangle,” where about 300 thousand Israeli Arabs live today in the eastern Sharon Valley (near Netanya), in return for the “block settlements” in Judea and Samaria, which include Gush Etzion, the Shchem area, Maale Adumim near Jerusalem and possibly the Hebron area. Such a swap would also most likely include the Jordan Valley.

 

The proposed swap would not include the “outposts,” which are more scattered and whose legal status is in dispute.

 

From the tone of the official speaking to Maariv, it appears that the idea could catch fire at this point in time, because it is far more likely to be embraced by a majority of Israeli Jews. It’s greatest claim to fame is the fact that it “only” removes 100 to 150 thousand settlers from their homes, a number which many Israelis could live with. This number has been bandied around by Science Minister Yaakov Perry in recent days, as the unavoidable “painful sacrifice” the Jewish state must endure for the sake of peace.

 

Kerry might be tempted to entertain this idea in public, even if he does not end up actually endorsing it, because it would appeal to the right wing in Israel as well as in the U.S. Fewer people get hurt, Israel is rid of part of a significant ethnic minority that can threaten the Jewish character of the state (Remember the ticking demographic bomb? It ain’t ticking so much, as Arab birthrate has been declining, but it still sounds good).

 

Last time this idea was contemplated, by current Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, it evoked a very negative, even angry response from the left, and from the Arab Israelis, who accused Lieberman of racism. Hard to tell why physically uprooting Jews is not racism, but merely redrawing the border to the west of an area rather than its east is racist.

 

Of course, the main reason the Triangle Arabs hated this proposal, and no doubt will despise it again, is because they’re nobody’s fools: why move from a Western democracy to a third world PLO (and later Hamas) dictatorship?

 

Also, the 100 to 150 thousand settlers and their loved ones will not be enamoured with the expulsion part. And, of course, the Palestinian negotiators will hate it because, to be fair, it kind of favors Israel, legitimizing upwards of half a million Jewish settlers, while at the same time helping it unload an ancient security problem—the Arab Triangle.

 

In my humble opinion, while I remain certain of the hopelessness of the Kerry effort, beginning to end, I must admit that this is just the kind of out of the box thinking that would boost the near-defunct 2-state solution.

 

Did you hug a released Palestinian terrorist today?
