Who Wants a One-State Solution? Ignoring the national aspirations of Palestinians and Israelis won’t solve their conflict. (excellent, gift link: “Neither Israelis nor Palestinians are going anywhere, and neither will give up their national identity… Israel can and must be pushed to end the occupation of the Palestinian territories and stop the obstruction of Palestinian sovereignty. But neither it nor Palestine can be pushed to commit ethno-national suicide.”)

    The Palestinians do NOT have national aspirations. If they did, they would have made a new state, or at least talked about it, when Jordan occupied the West Bank for 19 years from 1948 – 1967. In fact, the PLO put out a position in their Charter that they had NO aspirations for their own state. They were happily Jordanian citizens with the passports to prove it during this time span.

    Their only aspiration, their mission is to destroy Israel. How many times must they say it out loud before it is believed. We have the statements of the directors of the PLO, the PA, Arafat himself saying so.

    Not only is the two-state “solution” dead, one must wonder whether it is even ethical to propose it, given that the Palestinians profess their intention of the destruction of Israel and have official government policy of using terrorism to achieve it.

    Besides, there already IS a Palestinian state in Palestine – it is called Jordan. It has the moral obligation to take back its own citizens.
