Why the International Objections do not Hold Water

What are the counterarguments to Israel redeeming and enfranchising the entire Judea and Samaria after Israel has received a critical mass of Median Jewish immigrants and for Jordan to subsequently annex Gaza?

“It will not resolve the question of descendants of ex-refugees.”

Yes it will not, but that is irresoluble since no Arab interlocutor will anyway agree to rescinding the demand for flooding Israel with millions of Anti-Zionists.  

“The international community has agreed that the only solution is a two-state solution.”

Yes, but that consensus is a non-starter since the Palestinian side opposes an end-of-claims final status agreement as that would rescind the demand for flooding Israel with millions of Anti-Zionists. Israel must seek genuine peace because it is in Israel’s existential interest and entirely irrespective of the opinions of others.

“But the Palestinians want a state for themselves.”

Yes, many peoples want nation states of their own. The fact is that Palestinians constitute a majority of citizens in Jordan and so they already have a state, they cannot expect to have a second state. Irrespective are they not willing to end the conflict so an end-of-claims final status agreement is a non-starter. Gaza will become part of Jordan and make Palestinians an even greater majority of the citizens of Jordan.

“Israel annexing the West Bank will endanger Israel as a Jewish state because Palestinians have more children than Jews.”

Palestinians in Judea and Samaria and Israeli Jews both have about 3 children per woman. The Palestinian fertility rate has been falling since the 1950s when Palestinians had 9 children per woman and is continuing to fall consistent with Muslim demographic trends in the Middle East.

“The Palestinians will not agree to it.”

This solution is in their best interest. Palestinian leaders are not looking out for the best interests of Palestinians because they are obsessed with destroying Israel and exterminating the Jews.

“There will be regional instability.”

There might initially be some disturbances but that is not a strategic threat to regional stability. Palestinians will experience improvements in every way and no one will benefit more from peace than the Palestinians.

“The unresolved refugee question will destabilize the region and haunt the world.”

Not more than the Sudeten Germans destabilize Europe.

“Many states have long since recognized a Palestinian state.”

Yes, but that is their mistake and it is in the interest of peace for them to retract their recognition and instead recognize Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria and Jordanian sovereignty over Gaza. Many nations have long since retracted their former international recognition of West Sahara.

“Israel agreed to create an independent Palestinian state.”

The Oslo accords did not stipulate the creation of a Palestinian state and Israel is not bound by unsigned proposals that the Palestinian side rejected. 

“International law requires the creation of a Palestinian state.”

No international convention requires creating any non-existing state.

“The Muslim world will not accept it so there will not be normalization with Israel.” 

Many Muslim nations are already interested in normalization with Israel and further Muslim nations will certainly normalize relations with Israel once peace is established. There will be no more conflict and eventually will all Muslim nations normalize relations with Israel.
