Jewish Demography will Resolve the Palestinian Issue

Many governments around the world are understandably sincerely eager to resolve the protracted Palestinian issue, yet creating a Palestinian state is not within the realm of the possible due to the contradictory demand of the Palestinian side that Israel be demographically flooded with millions of Anti-Zionists, something which if actually realized would turn any two-state solution into a transitional fiction. Let us face the uncomfortable truth, there will never be a Palestinian state because of the contradictory demands of the Palestinian side which amount to effective opposition to the two-state solution. The Kushner peace map proves conclusively that the strategically located indigenous restorative communities of Judea and Samaria are no obstacles to partition, that is in fact beyond dispute. This is true irrespective of what views one holds on those communities.

Let us therefore look for solutions elsewhere. Israeli annexation of Median Jewish (Alawite and Druze) regions of Syria and Lebanon and Median Jewish mass Aliyah (immigration) to Israel will enable Israel to redeem and enfranchise the entire Judea and Samaria and Jordan will subsequently no doubt be more than happy to annex Gaza. The reorganization of the northern Levant, including the establishment of an Aramean Christian state (Aram), Israeli annexation of Median Jewish regions of Syria and Lebanon and the annexation by an AANES-led Syria of the remainder of Lebanon would certainly help resolve the Palestinian issue. Palestinian descendants of ex-refugees in the northern Levant would be given citizenship where they live whether in Aram, Israel or Syria, all within the new borders. 

Governments that are indeed eager to resolve the Palestinian issue should thus focus on facilitating Median Jewish mass Aliyah to Israel with particular focus on pressing the governments of Turkey and Iraq not to place obstacles in the way of Median Jewish Aliyah. The only way to free Iran’s 2-3 million Median Jews is to impose a no-fly zone that would trigger armed rebellions with US air support in Iran’s ethnic periphery. That could only happen after Israel destroys the Iranian nuclear weapons program in late 2022 or early 2023. Such armed rebellions with US air support would lead to the establishment of a series of regional autonomies similar to the KRG in Iraq and would in turn facilitate Median Jewish mass Aliyah to Israel. 

It is time to abandon old stale ideas whose pursuit have proven utterly fruitless since 1937. Israel’s annexation of Median Jewish regions of Syria and Lebanon and Median Jewish mass Aliyah to Israel are the solution and becoming full citizens of Israel is no doubt in the very best interest of the Palestinians of Judea and Samaria. Similarly, becoming part of Jordan with full Jordanian citizenship is definitely in the interest of the people of Gaza. As part of the promotion of peace, the international community should fully fund an underground road and railroad connection between the East Bank and Gaza under Israel’s Negev desert.

It is time to shift international diplomatic paradigm on the Palestinian issue. The old track only perpetuated suffering, rhetoric and non-solution and certainly didn’t deliver.
