Israel Wants Neither Palestinian State Nor

Opposition leaders in Israel have been accusing the recalcitrant
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu of effectively exposing Israel to an
existential danger. They are alluding to the apparent liquidation by Israel
of any remaining chances for the establishment of a viable Palestinian
Israel has erected hundreds of Jewish settlements in the West
Bank and East Jerusalem which pundits, both Arab and Jewish, contend are
rendering the realization of a viable Palestinian state impossible.
The Israeli Jewish opposition is by no means altruistic about opposing
Netanyahu’s Lebensraum policies.
They are only worried about Israel
becoming a bi-national state due to “a disproportionate” Palestinian
demographic growth. In the final analysis, Zionism is meaningless if Israel
has a non-Jewish majority. This is the ultimate nightmare facing Zionism.
Netanyahu knows well what his critics have in mind.
opposition is never really worried about the usurpation of Palestinian
rights. This is the very last thing that would worry Zionists.
Zionists are actually worried that the Palestinian demographic growth within
mandatory Palestine (Israel, West Bank, Gaza Strip) will eventually make the
region (between the River Jordan and the Mediterranean) “Predominantly
Palestinian” with a decisive or marked Arab-Majority, which would revert the
situation to what it was before the creation of Israel when Jews were a
small minority of the overall population.
Indeed, the latest
demographic calculations seem to justify these worries. According to Israeli
demographers, there are already more Arabs than Jews living within the

demographic data by manipulating tactics and denying reality.
can Israel hide reality from herself-and the world forever?
Netanyahu is thoroughly aware of the problem, or more correctly the
existential nightmare haunting Zionism, especially in the intermediate and
But he refuses to come to terms with the fact that
with every day passing, Israel-Palestine becomes more Arab and less Jewish
in terms of the population. Instead, he adopts “denial” as ultimate policy
But denial will take Israel nowhere; yes it might
enable the Zionist state to effect some immediate policy tactics. But in the
long term, denial could be very costly, self-defeating and even fatal for
the Zionist enterprise.
In recent months, Netanyahu received
encouragement from Bashar Al-Assad’s successful policy of murdering, maiming
and expelling millions of refugees (mostly Sunni Arabs) in the hope of
creating a new demographic formula in the erstwhile predominantly Sunni
Hence, the rationale being entertained by Netanyahu is
“If Assad could do it with virtual impunity by the international community,
why can’t Israel?”
Needless to say, this is the thrust of
Netanyahu’s thinking. This is also the gist of Israel’s ultimate strategy
toward the Palestinians.
Netanyahu may be an evil man, a murderous
thug and professional liar who wouldn’t hesitate to embark on the
unthinkable to reach his goals, however unethical and diabolical these goals
might be. But Netanyahu is not stupid. Hence his genocidal designs must
never be taken lightly or underestimated.
The Israel PM calculates,
probably correctly, that neither the US nor Europe or any other world
powers would be in a position to prevent Israel from doing the unthinkable
to the helpless Palestinians if the latter became a real and immediate
threat to the Jewish identity of Israel and its fascist infrastructure.
In fact, this is the main reason behind Netanyahu’s incessant demands that
Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish state.
invoke the big lie that Israel is also a democratic state.
But a big
lie is a big lie as Israel can never be democratic and Talmudic at the same
time as there is an eternal contradiction between halacha and democracy.
More to the point, Israel calculates that since the use of military
force by the West against Israel is unthinkable, given Israel’s awesome
military power, including the Jewish state’s nuclear arsenal, as well as the
leverage Jewish circles have on Western governments, especially in US,
Britain, Germany and France.
Hence, Israel would ensure that a final
solution of the Palestinian problem would be executed with as a few lasting
destructive effects on the Jewish state as possible.
Israel would embark on a vigorous propaganda campaign to control or minimize
subsequent damage following a possible genocidal onslaught on the
In this context, Israel would probably voice
willingness to allow certain categories of the expellees to return home,
such as people above the age of 50 or 60, or paying compensation and showing
gestures of “good- will” in order to cover up the genocidal act and make
more palatable in the eyes of the world.
There’s no doubt that the
US and Europe would take no concrete action to prevent Israel from carrying
out the genocidal act especially in light of their acquiescence to the
ongoing holocaust in Syria which has so far killed and maimed millions.
In light, it is imperative that Palestinians adopt a salvation strategy
based on consolidating their steadfastness vis-à-vis Israel whereby
Palestinian national assets are bolstered as much as possible and national
liabilities are eradicated as much as possible.
