When the socialist Zionists got the U.N. to recognize the existence of the nation-state of Israel in 1948, they had “democracy” in mind for this restored homeland of the Jewish people. Yes, the surrounding Arab nations (did not include Palestine, because it was never a “nation,” rather a Roman and, then, British colony after the Kingdom of Israel was overthrown for the last time) did indeed try to immediately remove the existence of the State of Israel from the world map in three attempted and failed wars (ended in 1973). But, even after this, the Jewish Zionists who founded Israel did not want to keep the Palestinian lands they occupied as a result of these anti-Semitic wars (wars that came on heels of the WWII European genocide). They wanted a Two-State Solution peace. The terrorists organizations that arose in Palestine to destabilize Israel obviously did not, but they don’t speak for all Palestinian Arabs.
As well, the rise of the extreme-religious Zionist movement in Israel (the heart of the present day Likud Party), with their One-State minded solution – that equates specifically to an apartheid state that possess all the lands of Palestine as it was “in Bible times” – obviously do not want peace and resolution. Since the U.N. has already done this once already, what is so hard for the U.N. itself to clearly and forcibly establish recognized boundaries of both the Israeli nation-State and a Palestinian nation-State? Until the border boundaries have been clearly established and are being clearly enforced (by the world powers), there is no resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict! Establish the national borders, encourage the rise of democracy in both nation-States and – then – negotiate for peace between the two. This is the only way it’s going to work.
Sadly, what has been happening in Israel, with the financial help of extreme-religious Jewish and Christian American organizations, is now taking root politically in the United States of America. John Kerry is right: We must choose between a Jewish nation-State or Jewish democracy, we cannot be both. Just like we are now faced in the United States with whether we are to continue being an American democracy or allow ourselves to become the Israeli equivalent of a Christian nation in this world – that is ever at odds with Islam, Communism, and anyone else who would dare to challenge by their very existence as people the authority and “rightness” of Christian revisionist history and dominance in this world. Wake up, U.S. citizens, the religious-minded of our nation and other nations are leading us, once again, to another World War. It does not need to happen, it would disastrous for all if it did – but they believe in the apocalyptic fantasies found in a set of books written by humans, and are intent on making happen by humans hands the realization of the self-righteous foolish fantasies.
Kerry lays out parameters for peace: ‘No alternative for the two-state solution’
The outgoing secretary of state calls for Jewish state alongside Arab state in 1967 borders, with some land swaps, and Jerusalem as the international capital of both nations; in farewell speech on the topic, Kerry also slams settlement construction and defends administration’s decision not to veto anti-settlements resolution.
One, “create a secure and recognized border between Israel and a contiguous Palestine along the 1967 lines, with “mutually agreed, equivalent (land) swaps.”… A Jewish state and an Arab state, with full and equal rights for all citizens.”
Two, “provide a just and fair solution to the Palestinian refugees issues, including compensation, which is consistent with the idea of two states for two peoples.”
Three, “reach an agreed resolution for Jerusalem as the international, recognized capital of the two states. “The solution will have to meet the needs not only of the parties, but of all three monotheistic religions,” Kerry said.”
Four, “a peace accord between the two sides must bring to a full end to the occupation while ensuring that Israel can defend itself effectively and Palestine could protect its people.”
Five, “the sides msut end the conflict and all outstanding claims, enabling all normal relations.”
And … Six, the religious Zionist right of Israel needs to stop crying and whining about how they’re being persecuted – just like the Christians in the United States need to stop whining and complaining about the same. You cannot be the persecuted and under oppression when you are the dominant power that been doing the oppressing all these years! Religion is the source of all evil, evil made at the hands of human Sapiens on this planet. The founders of Israel and of the United States both wanted one thing: Peace by way of sovereign democratic liberty and justice for all our people!
