It’s the Consensus Stupid!

There is much international hope pinned to a future successor to Mahmoud Abbas making peace with Israel. However, to personalize this issue, to think that the problem of Palestinian rejectionism is limited to first Yasser Arafat and then Mahmoud Abbas is myopic at best. Palestinian society is thoroughly rejectionist. The Palestinian consensus states that a return the 1949 ceasefire lines must be combined with the implementation of the Palestinian demand for so-called “return” of millions of Palestinians who never lived in Israel in thus dooming the Jewish nation state, something which of course is precisely the intention of those uncompromising Anti-Zionists. The Palestinian consensus states that not only must the Jewish population of Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem be expelled en masse but so must the Jewish population of West Jerusalem and internationally recognized Israel as well. This consensus has for decades been deliberately created and nurtured by the Palestinian leadership to prevent a two-state solution which they obviously do not want despite pretending so when speaking in English. The Palestinian leadership has been offered two-state peace many times since 1937 and has always rejected it out of hand. To claim to want a two-state solution while simultaneously insisting Israel be flooded with millions of Anti-Zionist Anti-Semites would not seem serious to put things mildly, but it is actually very serious, in fact this is the very essence of genocidal Anti-Zionism, the destruction of the Jewish nation state and the annihilation of its Jewish population since there is nowhere to expel the Jews.
