The Palestinian Authority does not Want to End the Conflict

The official “negotiation position” of the Palestinian Authority is that of endless demands leading to the dismantlement of the Jewish state without being interested in offering anything in return. Not only does the Palestinian Authority refuse to negotiate with Israel but it is officially commiitted to its Anti-Zionist ideology of ending the Jewish state. The Palestinian movement is opposed to an end-of-claims final status agreement (“the conspiracy to liquidate the Palestinian issue”) since this would end the Palestinian demand for flooding Israel with millions of Anti-Zionists whose common vision is a Jewish Nakba of evicting 7 million Jews from their homes and at best deporting them to other countries and at worst exterminating them.

The Palestinian movement is committed to endless conflict until it reaches its goal of displacing 7 million Jews from their homes. Israeli strategists understand this perfectly well and are particularly well aware that the best Israeli strategy is to continue to build in restorative indigenous communities of Judea and Samaria until the Jewish population in Israel has grown sufficiently to allow for Israel to redeem and enfranchise the entire Judea and Samaria. Why does Israel continue to build in Judea and Samaria? To demographically cement its control of course over those areas and prevent any return to the Auschwitz lines that existed prior to the 1967 Six Day war.

The status quo sometimes leads to outbursts of violence but is basically possible to live with until the demographic situation allows for Israel to apply sovereignty over the entire Judea and Samaria. The status quo in Judea and Samaria has existed since the 1990s and allows for relatively comfortable coexistence until demographic developments in Israel allow for Israel to incorporate the entire Judea and Samaria into sovereign Israel.

Anyone interested in this issue should read what the Palestinian leadership tells its own population and the message is unmistakably Anti-Zionist with the goal of supplanting the Jewish state with a Palestinian one-state solution without any Jewish presence.

However, neither a one-state solution nor a two-state is feasible and will never be realized. The only viable path in the short term to peace is Median Jewish mass Aliyah (immigration) to Israel in the many millions, something that will enable Israel to redeem and enfranchise the entire Judea and Samaria and subsequently for Jordan to annex Gaza. The only thing the international community can do to promote the cause of peace is to put in place strong policies that will facilitate Median Jewish mass Aliyah from Middle Eastern countries. The Haredi (Ultra-Orthodox) population explosion (there is expected to be 5 million Haredim in Israel in just three decades time) would eventually enable Israel to apply sovereignty over the entire Judea and Samaria. However, there is no reason to wait decades for a solution when the problem can be resolved already in the short term through Median Jewish mass Aliyah in the many millions.

The Palestinian Authority is completely irrelevant although convenient for Israel since its frees Israel from the burden of military administration of 2 million Palestinians in Judea and Samaria. The problem of course is that at present Middle Eastern countries (including the Erdogan regime in Ankara) are determined to prevent Median Jewish mass Aliyah to Israel. There are however solutions to this problem and governments eager to resolve the Palestinian issue should urgently work to remove all regional barriers to Median Jewish immigration to Israel.
