No State for Palestine… Not in 2008...Not Ever!

No State for Palestine… ever!

First, lets understand this is all a ruse at Annapolis. I am being generous to suggest it is a formality the Bush Administration feels it must go through as the administrations before it have done. (As I said... I'm being generous!) The simple truth is, there should be no Palestinian state and there is no reason, today, to think there will be anytime in 2008.

Did you know that the area and the people, erroneously called Palestinians, were offered a state of their own back in the 1930’s? Bet you didn’t know that.

It seems we have to go over the history of the rejected Palestinian state over and over... and I can only surmise the Public School System, and the university and college systems, in the US simply don’t teach it!

Look, the plain truth is… the people, calling themselves Palestinians, have been offered a state of their own a number of times since the 1936 Arab revolt. They have flatly turned it down every time! Yes! The first offer made by the Peel Commission in the 1930s offered them a vast piece of real estate much larger that that offered to the Jews and … they turned it down!

UN Resolution 181 passed soon after the Second World War gave Israel 55% of the so-called Palestine and the Palestinians 45%. The Jews accepted and in doing so recognized that Palestine would become a state next door to them. They accepted that. But the Arabs rejected it, flat out, and started another war against the Jews, which... they promptly lost.

It has been 60 years now and the whining and moaning is still coming from the “woe is me” crowd who called themselves Palestinians.

The problems between Israel and the Palestinians are not because Israel has settled on some disputed land. No! The cause of all the trouble in that “center of the earth” strip of land is due entirely to the Arabs refusal to accept the existence of a Jewish state called Israel, or called anything else, for that matter. That is the crux of the problem.

“Right of Return” is far more dangerous to The State of Israel than an all out attack by their Arab neighbors. You’re going to hear more and more about the Palestinian's demand for a Right of Return. So what is the Right of Return? “The idea of the right of return is to demand that Israel allow the decendants of the 750,000 Palestinians who were displaced in 1948 and their families (which now stands at almost 4 million) back into Israel and give them full compensation for their troubles. Even if only half of these Palestinians returned, it would alter Israel's identity as a Jewish state and effectively create a second Palestinian state. One assumption made under the right of return is that the all the Arabs which lived in Israel proper were forcibly expelled from their homes in 1947 and 48. This is a myth. While historians know for a fact that a small number of the 750,000 displaced Arabs were forcibly expelled by Zionist militias (a famous example being Deir Yassin), honest and impartial historians also know that a large number of this 750,000 strong population left on their own, either to avoid an upcoming war between the Zionists and the Arabs, or to join the Arabs in the fighting against the newly established state.” (From: )

Now, understand… the Annapolis Peace Conference is doomed to failure. In my opinion it should never have been held, in the first place. The Palestinians will obfuscate, and delay, and continue to carry on their war to wipe Israel from the face of the map. They will use any means to do it. The Annapolis Peace Conference is simply another tool in their arsenal to use against Israel.

As a conservative, I believe in “peace through victory”. To take that a step further, I believe we ought to unleash Israel and let them do whatever they find necessary to eradicate the Palestinian problem on their borders. Afterwards, the conferences like the one in Annapolis will no longer be useful as a propaganda tool of the Arabs.

But, as we view the Annapolis Peace Conference today, we can see that the Bush Administration, and the US State Department, have been “snuckered” again!

If the world truly wants peace in the Middle East, especially that portion we erroneously call Palestine, then get out of the way and allow Israel to take care of business.

As I have stated in the past:
If all the folks that want Israel wiped off the map, laid down their arms, peace would be achieved within 48 hrs.

If the Israeli's laid down their arms, every Jew in Israel would be dead in 48 hours.

The problem is not a history lesson, the problem is Islam. IF and that's a HUGE IF, the Palestinian issue were resolved, there would be another issue to unite the Arab world in anger.

As long as there are Muslims sitting on oil, and as long as the free world needs that oil, there will be violence, and strife in that part of the world.
