Retract International Recognition of Palestinian Statehood

A joint IDF-SDF campaign to liberate Syria and Lebanon following a massive Hezbollah missile assault on the city of Tel Aviv will enable Israel to annex the Median Jewish (Alawite and Druze) regions of Syria and Lebanon. This will add 4 million Median Jews to Israel’s demographics and with immigration of 1 million Yezidi and Yarsani Median Jews from Iraq will Israel’s Jewish population rise by a total of five million. With that, we have not even mentioned Median Jewish immigration from Turkey, Iran and beyond the Middle East in the tens of millions. This will certainly demographically allow Israel to annex the entire Judea and Samaria. 

Palestinians of Judea and Samaria have a much brighter future as part of the State of Israel, one of the world’s most economically developed countries than in the despotic, poor, underdeveloped and kleptocratic statelet that is the Palestinian Authority that simply has no future. As enfranchised Israeli citizens will Palestinians of East Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria have full civil rights, there will be no occupation, no checkpoints and Palestinians of Judea and Samaria will be integrated into Israeli open society. Palestinians of Judea and Samaria will enjoy the benefits of full access to the Israeli labor market and there will no doubt be tremendous economic growth in the area. As Israeli citizens will Palestinians of Judea and Samaria have full voting rights to the Knesset as well as for municipal elections. 

There is no question that the government of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan will be most happy to annex Gaza once Israel has applied Israeli sovereignty to the entire Judea and Samaria. Gaza will become Jordan’s new beachfront and Gaza will be connected to the East Bank through an underground road and railroad connection under Israel’s Negev desert.

The international community would be particularly well-advised to prepare for retraction of the international recognition of Palestinian statehood. The widespread recognition was a mistake to begin with as the the prevailing view in the international community was that a Palestinian state was a virtual inevitababilty. Yet decades after the so-called “Palestinian state” was proclaimed in Algiers in 1988 is there no Palestinian state in sight and there is no future whatsoever for Palestinian statehood. However, the Palestinians of Judea and Samaria have a very bright future indeed as Israeli citizens and the international community should certainly recognize that.
