First comprehensive study in Hebrew into Islamic State says Sunni group could wield more influence over Israeli Arabs and Palestinians if it takes land closer to Israel’s borders.11:08 28.11.15 | 1 comments
In reality there are only two options - a two state solution or a one state solution. The two-state solution is probably almost impossible but it could be done if Israel acts quickly. However, everyone knows Israel will not act quickly so let's deal with the true reality. World opinion ended apartheid in South Africa and that was a far stronger country than Israel. World opinion will not allow the occupation to continue; it will not allow the Palestinians to be killed or driven out (apart from which there are six million Palestinians in refugee camps who would come back to take their place), and that means it is either two states with an independent Palestine which has exactly the same rights as an independent Israel or one state with equal rights for all regardless of race or creed... just as the US, Canada, Australia, NZ, South Africa... other recent colonisers have done. The longer Israelis play with these impossible fantasies the more they sow the seeds of their own destruction. Israel has lost its colonial war... justice will be done. The only question is how much a part, if any, Israelis will play in its resolution.
