Recently did an anonymous Palestinian official claim that the Palestinian Authority and the US government see eye to eye on the question of restorative indigenous communities and ostensibly agree that the indigenous restoration project in Judea and Samaria is designed to thwart a two-state solution. Nothing could be further from the truth. The indigenous restoration project in Judea and Samaria is specifically designed to thwart a particular outcome, namely Israeli retreat to the pre-1967 Auschwitz lines or variations thereof.
However, the indigenous restoration project was prepared with three eventual outcomes in mind and in each case would Israel have defensible borders which is not the case with the Auschwitz lines or variations thereof. The first outcome is Israeli redemption and enfranchisement of the entire Judea and Samaria. The second outcome is Israeli annexation of Jewish areas of Judea and Samaria with Jordan annexing most Arab areas in Judea, Samaria and in Israel itself. The third outcome is a Palestinian state in Arab areas of Judea, Samaria and Israel without having a border with Jordan.
The restored indigenous communities of Judea and Samaria were all carefully placed to geographically preserve all three options. To understand this requires deep comprehension of Israeli planning in Judea and Samaria but the Kushner peace map (which the Israeli government of course knew would not be realized since the Palestinian Authority does not want to end the conflict other than by ending Israel) offers a glimpse into this planning, despite the Kushner peace plan having been drawn up by Americans. It is important to understand that the second and third outcomes are just that and are not preferred scenarios and neither of them is desirable for military reasons, yet Israeli planners deliberately left both reserve options open. Israel’s default option has always been to apply sovereignty over the entire Judea and Samaria when Israel’s Jewish demography allows so and in the meantime to continue to enable the indigenous restoration project in Judea and Samaria so as to prevent a return to the Auschwitz lines.
So much false information about the indigenous restoration project has been disseminated by both the international community and by the radical left in Israel. A contributing reason is that the Israeli authorities never made an effort to explain the strategic thinking behind the indigenous restoration project and those amateur NGO researchers who claim to be “authorities” on the project do not at all understand the strategic thinking behind it. Israel always assumed that Israeli incorporation of the entire Judea and Samaria would either have to wait many decades pending the results of the Haredi demographic revolution or would happen earlier through mass Aliyah (Jewish immigration) to Israel from Europe and the Western Hemisphere. However, then enters the historical rediscovery of core Median Jewry (Alawites, Alevis, Alians, Bektashis, Druze, Khaksaris, Shabaks, Yarsanis and Yezidis) and with that the very real potential for mass Aliyah of tens of millions of Median Jews from the Middle East and beyond in tripling or quadrupling Israel’s population.
The international community needs to reconsider its dogmatic adherence to the notion that Israeli return to the Auschwitz lines would bring perpetual peace. A Palestinian state could only be created by Israeli unilateral withdrawal since the Palestinian side is unanimously opposed to an end-of-claims final status agreement (it insists on flooding Israel with millions of Anti-Zionists) and such a state in Judea and Samaria would quickly become a Second Gaza and Israel would have no choice but to reoccupy the the entire Judea and Samaria in order to protect Jerusalem and other Israeli cities from the Jihadist rocket and missile threat and the strategic threat from mass importation of foreign military forces from Anti-Zionist counties such as Algeria, Bangladesh, Iran, Malaysia and Pakistan. A two-state solution is entirely not realistic and is completely based on wishful thinking without foundation in strategic realities.
Median Jewish mass Aliyah will resolve the conflict by demographically allowing Israel to redeem and enfranchise the entire Judea and Samaria with Jordan subsequently annexing Gaza. This is in practice the only peace option available and it will happen.
