Palestinian State - Undermining American Interests

http://www.frontpagemag.com/readArticle.aspx?ARTID=36065, August 26, 2009

The idea that a Palestinian state can lead to enduring peace in the Middle East has become a diplomatic obsession for American policy makers. Bringing such a state into being has become the equivalent of finding the Holy Grail. In fact, however, a Palestinian state would not only fail to bring peace and stability to the region, but would make it an even more dangerous place than it already is. And ironically, given its adamant backing for a government that would have been led by Yasser Arafat and now would be headed by Abu Mazen, U.S. support for the creation of “Palestine,” which would immediately ally itself with and become a client of rivals and enemies of America such as Iran, would harm American, Israeli, and even Arab interests.

The Self-Destruct Iran-Palestinian Linkage

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3713083,00.html, May 08, 2009

In May 1948, Secretary of State George Marshall bullied Prime Minister David Ben Gurion against declaration of independence. Thus, he professed a supposed linkage between the establishment of the Jewish State and the denial of Arab oil supply to the US, on the eve of a potential world war between the US and the USSR. It was Ben Gurion's defiance of pressure, which helped clear-thinking Americans to refute the baseless linkage.

In May 2009, the US Administration intends to roll Israel back to the 1949 Lines, including the repartitioning of Jerusalem. In order to pressure Israel, the Administration contends an ostensible linkage between the stop-Iran-campaign and the Palestinian issue. Just like its 1949 predecessor, the 2009 linkage aims at misrepresenting Israel as a peace obstructionist, which harms US national security.

The Proposed Palestinian State: A Deal-Maker or a Deal-Breaker?

Jerusalem Cloakroom #223, April 10, 2009

1.  The Palestinian issue was a deal-breaker during Israel-Egypt peace negotiation.  In defiance of Carter and Brzezinski – the "Palestine Firsters" – and in spite of Palestinian terrorist threats, Begin and Sadat introduced a Palestinian-bypass, thus concluding a peace accord. Their determination to overcome White House and Foggy Bottom preoccupation with the Palestinian issue as, supposedly, the root core of the Arab-Israeli conflict and Mideast violence, produced a peace treaty.  It has lowered the prospect of an Arab-Israeli war, has decreased regional tension and has advanced US interests. 

The Palestinian Pandora's Box

The mild reaction by Arab countries to the Hamas-driven Palestinian predicament in Gaza refutes the assumption that the Palestinian issue is a top Arab priority and that it constitutes the core cause of Arab hostility toward the West, USA and Israel.  In fact, the Arab reaction has reflected overall Arab attitude toward the Palestinian issue since 1948, through the 1982 Israel-PLO war in Lebanon and the First and Second Intifadah, irrespective of the identity of the Palestinian leadership: Haj Amin al-Husseini, Shukeiri, Hammuda, Arafat, Abu Mazen or Haniyeh.

Palestinian Refugees – The Global Context

Jerusalem Cloakroom #217, August 15, 2008

1.  Over 100 million refugees have been created by wars since the end of WW2.


2.  79 million refugees were created during 1933-1945.


3.  15 Million Hindus, Sikhs (8.5MN) and Muslims (6.5MN) were displaced, in 1947, in order to reshape British India into India and Pakistan.

Palestinian Tractor-Terrorism: Mainstream Not Renegade

Jerusalem Cloakroom #215, July 04, 2008

1.  Hate-Education-Driven-Terrorism. The July 2, 2008 Palestinian Tractor-Terrorism constituted a precise Palestinian human-missile, guided by Palestinian hate-education, instituted in 1994 by Abu-Mazen, then Arafat’s first deputy, and proliferated via Abu Mazen’s current educational-religious-media infrastructures. K-12, and older, Palestinians are exposed systematically to school textbooks, sermons, editorials and news editions – controlled by Abu Mazen – which idolize homicide bombers, calling for the destruction of the “illegitimate, infidel” Jewish State. Hate-education (and not statements made to Western leaders and media) is the most authentic reflection of one’s ideology, vision and strategy. Hate-education constitutes the manufacturing line of terrorists.  Hate-education distinguishes between peaceful and violent societies. Hate-education is facilitated by foreign aid provided to Abu Mazen by the US, W. Europe and the UN.

Palestinian Refugees – The Truth (whose responsibility?)

Straight From The Jerusalem Cloakroom #214, June 13, 2008

While the surrounding Arab countries – assisted by Palestinian Arabs - invaded the newly established Jewish State:

 

1.  The British Mandate urged Arabs and Jews (November 30, 1947- May 14, 1948, before the outbreak of the war) to evacuate small mixed towns, where they constituted a minority.  Arabs complied, while Jews defied. Consequently, Alan Cunningham, the British High Commissioner, stated: “Arabs are leaving the country with their families in considerable numbers, and there is an exodus from the mixed towns to the rural Arab centers…The panic of the Arab middle class persists and there is a steady exodus of those who can afford to leave the country (December 1947, five months before the 1948/9 War)”. 

Soft & Reluctant Support for Palestinian state among Israel’s Jews

Straight From The Jerusalem Cloakroom #213, April 22, 2008

1.  Support – among Israeli Jews – for the proposed Palestinian state (“Two States Solution”) is soft and reluctant, according to a March 31-April 1 poll conducted by the Tel Aviv University Center For Peace Research.

Palestinian Christians Swept Under the Annapolis Carpet!

STRAIGHT FROM THE JERUSALEM CLOAKROOM #210, December 28, 2007

1. “Bethlehem will become a town of churches devoid of Christians, if you transfer the area to the Palestinian Authority,” predicted the late Mayor of Bethlehem, Elias Freij, pleading – in 1993 – not to transfer the area to PLO control. The heads of Bethlehem and Beit Jallah monasteries begged the US and Israel – in 1993 – to refrain from transferring the area to the Palestinian Authority.  Their request was denied, in order to advance the Oslo Process…

The Palestinian Issue – The Crux of the Arab-Israeli Conflict?

Straight From The Jerusalem Cloakroom #205, August 10, 2007

US policy-makers have contended that the establishment of a Palestinian State would resolve the Palestinian issue, which is – supposedly – the crux of the Arab-Israeli conflict.  Really?
