Doomed Israel Palestine Peace Process – There is Only One Possible Solution & That Is One State Solution

By Sikander Hayat

There have been many times when Jews and Muslims of Palestine went through this tortuous process of hope and pain but nothing has come out of these series of negotiations.
There is one country between the river Jordan and the Mediterranean, you can call it Israel or Palestine according to your own religious affiliation but the world must stop pretending that somehow you can carve out a state for Muslims in the country of Israel.  The sooner everyone understands this better it will be for the future generations of Israel/Palestine.
Just the logic of creating a territory which is not coherent and crisscrossed by the Jewish settlements is warped. Here are just few of the reasons why two state solution will not work in practice.

  • 1.     Jews will not stop building new settlements
  • 2.     Muslims will never let go the right of return for their refugees just as Jews are returning from all parts of the world to settle in Israel/Palestine
  • 3.     Muslims will not want a state which will not have any security services to protect its borders
  • 4.     Israel will not allow free access between Gaza & West Bank
  • 5.     Hamas will not accept the current regime running Israel/Palestine
  • 6.     No Jewish government will give any concession to Muslims over the issue of Jerusalem

These are just few of the many issues that stop the creation of a Muslim state in Palestine which lead me to believe that two state solution is dead & buried in the holy land. The only viable solution to this issue is a single state comprising of Jews and the Muslims between the Mediterranean and the river Jordan. Palestinian areas have been crisscrossed by so many Jewish settlements that a viable Palestinian state is now impossible. Jerusalem should be the undivided capital of the new state and apartheid regime must end for peace to prevail in the land of David and Solomon.

    The second panel of your map, of course, shows the state the Palestinians could have had in 1948, had they and their Arab brethren accepted the partition. Both sides would have had critical coastal areas. As for arable land, note how much of the land allotted to Israel consisted of Negev desert.

  2. I agree with Shmuel. How can Israel have a state that consists mostly of desert land? The Jewish people are not bedouin tribes, and clearly this would not work. If the Arabs consider Jews as "people of the book", then they should also accept the Jews entitlement to the land as well.

    The peoples of Arizona are not bedouin tribes either, and I wouldn't mind living in Scottsdale btw did you know the Japanese built an airport in the ocean. it sort of makes one think that limitations are only subject to the constraints of perception and a limited thought process.

  4. Dear Shmuel,

    Thanks for your comment.

    1. Dear Sikander Hayat,

  5. Netanyahu has announced that there will be new settlements in West Bank & East Jerusalem. All these new settlements will be on occupied land and will be illegal as per United Nations ruling. Israel does not care with Trump on American throne and Michael Flynn running US security policy, there is no way anyone is going to stop Israel and its right wing government from doing what it wants to do. The writing is truly on the wall. Two state solution is dead and buried under all the settlement activity. There cannot be a meaningful Palestinian state in West Bank and Gaza. With Iraq and Syria completely destroyed, Palestinians have no support in Arab world. One State is here to stay but Israel will either have to throw all Palestinians out of Palestine or give them right to vote. Israel can never allow them to vote but it will try to throw them out.
    This is where the real game begins.
