III. A Progressive Israeli Argument for the Two-State Solution
By Geoffrey Cook, TMO
San Francisco–Home at last! Home at last with a thick new notebook.
During the past week (6th-12th), the initial reports were that the casualties of the Palestinian demonstrators at the Syrian border by the Jewish Strata on the Golan Heights has increased to twenty-seven — mowed down with live bullets from the other side of the barbed wire with several seriously wounded, furthermore, by the by the IDF (the Israeli Defense Force) at the express orders to employ the ultimate violence against the non-violent demonstrators from the Prime Minister (P.M.) Netanyahu. In North Africa the rebels are hedging more closely to Tripoli, the Libyan nationâ€™s traditional capital… Although Gaddafi has been accused of rape as a weapon war by his soldiers, the â€œColonelâ€ has stated,â€ Iâ€™ll stay in Tripoli whether I live or die!â€™ While two Imperial powers, Britain and France, are preparing a resolution in United Nations (U.N.) condemning Damascus for their brutality in their civil war. Incidentally, Libya and Syria have been two of the most obnoxious to the West, and â€œtaking outâ€ President Assad would be a great relief to the Israeli Prime Minister, for they one of the few nationsâ€™ in the expanse (since they are neighbors) who could provide a MAD (Mutual Assured Destruction) to Tel Aviv overbearing nuclear arsenal in the Negev .
As your composer has stated earlier, he believes the success or failure of the Arab â€œSpringâ€ will depend upon the reaction of the Israeli government. If they act diplomatically, there can be a tremendous blossoming of Arab-style democracies; if they respond in a belligerent manner there will be an appalling conflict, and, with nuclear weapons involved, it can be as great a disaster as Hiroshima, and with the closeness of Israel to its neighbors it can only destroy the nuclear State to unimaginable consequences.
This is the third installment with the Israeli General, their Ministry of Justice bureaucrat and Jeremy Ben-Ami of J-Street in the United States who was in Washington at the time of the call:
The two Israeli citizens pointed out that Palestine is unstable at the moment. (Unfortunately, that is true, but it is true that it is overwhelmingly caused by the Zionist expansion upon Arab land!) The General believes that the Hamas-Fatah reconciliation is not a threat, for under his analysis, he deems Hamas to be weak, (but under your authorâ€™s assay Hamas is a substantial opponent to the Israeli hegemony over the region, for, although Tel Aviv and Cairo had been doing their best to execute the sway of the Palestinian mini-strip on the sea, your researcher is of the opinion that Gaza quintessentially defeated the Hebrew-speaking Army in their Cast Iron operation against the Palestinian mini-State by exposed to the world Jerusalemâ€™s vicious violence to an ultimately defenseless populace; thus, turning the prevailing global popular â€œgoodâ€ opinion away from the Zionistâ€™s position towards their opponents for the land, the indigenous Palestinians.)
One of Israeli incentives for joining in on the dialogue with Ramallah in the company of the Quartet (the United States, the U.N., the European Union (E.U.) and the Russian Federation) as interlopers is, although there are many differences of opinion regarding Hamas, Tel Aviv wishes to isolate and prevent them from capturing the total â€œOccupiedâ€ Territoriesâ€™ in the next elections which they have a very good chance of accomplishing with the depopulation of the Christians and the Islamization of Palestine herself. Even so, there are talks amongst the original inhabitants of the Holy Land (for most of the Palestinians there are the direct descendants of the ancient residents of their geographic district, whereas the majority of the Jews had been Europeanized with a mixture of the Jewish diaspora who had fled Spain to the region mainly within the border districts of modern Poland and Russia wherein they had intermixed with the Yalta converted (Jews) of the Ninth Century (I most not this historically scenario is highly disapproved by Jewish scholars in Jerusalem as is the Night Ride of the Prophet (s); and, thus, Israel can be perceived as a Settler Colonial State and must be amalgamated into the Middle East) to be accepted. Further The Quartet must integrate Hamas into the elections (if it is not done, it would be hard to describe these forthcoming `polls to be free and fair. What is so interesting about the advancement of the Palestiniansâ€™ cause is that, finally, they are on the worldâ€™s â€œradar, and that it coincidesâ€ with the Arab â€œSpring,â€ and it has many elements. (It must be kept in mind, that, Palestine is central to the Arabâ€™s ideology, and, although it is on the fringes of West Asia, it is well near the â€œcenterâ€ of the Arab-speaking humanity which extends from the full of North Africa into the Arabian West and Saudi Arabia itself, the homeland of Islam, and the UAE (United Arab Emirates) in the Persian (or Arab, as it is, also called,) Gulf on the East.
Tara Hassan, of the Israeli Ministry of Justice is, also, a leader for â€œtrueâ€ Justice within her homeland. She urged that the Palestinian Prime Minister (P.M.) Mahmoud Abbas, be granted concessions, reiterating the Israeli bugaboo, to avoid Hamas administrating the West Bank. (It is interesting to note the great fear of almost all Israelis â€“ either on the Right or Left â€“ is their irrational fear of Islamism, and seems to be a driving force to lean their Commonweal to the Left which is a hopeful sign for an agreement to the conundrum and the especially for the long-term future of the Palestinians themselves. Although she describes herself as a Zionist, for her, a Zionist does not have to be on the political Jewish-wing. â€œOnly a two-State Solution will save Israel,â€ too. Hassan, further, states that â€œâ€¦We should take every opportunity [to convince] the people of Israel!â€ Sharoni interjects that we should present to the Israeli publicâ€ the necessity of the twoâ€”State Solution! As often as possibility, for the people (here) have an unfounded fear of the Arab â€œSpring,â€ (and that is driving internal policy there, too).
Why are we spending so much time looking at non-Muslim Israel — because it is the dominant dominion within the Middle East â€“ due to the policy of America arming its pariah client to the hilt? (The citizens of the U.S.A. have a grave duty to extricate their own nation from this enigma to which they themselves have created, and to become a force for peace among these environs.)
Whatever is happening within the halls of Tel Aviv will have a dramatic effect within the Arabic al-Islam!
