Why is the Palestinian Authority trying to promote UN membership for the non-existent “State of Palestine” despite an assured US veto in the UN Security Council? The apparent purpose is to pressure liberal democracies into recognizing Palestinian statehood with the goal of torpedoeing peace.
The PA is quite comfortable with the status quo and its hope is to eventually become yet another Iranian forward base and hence its utter passivity with regard to Jihadism in Samaria. Of course, Israeli intelligence has always known that the PLO never had any genuine interest in a permanent two-state solution and both Ramallah and Jerusalem have long regarded the two-state discourse as a tactical means to very different strategic ends. For the Palestinians is the Palestinian Authority essential to the phased plan which they now hope will be implemented by Iran. For the Israelis was the very purpose of the Oslo Accords to establish semi-permanent Palestinian autonomy in parts of Judea and Samaria. Neither side had any intention to resolve the conflict and permanently establish a Palestinian state next to the Jewish state.
The “Palestinian state” next to Israel was always dead on arrival simply because the Palestinian side never wanted it. However, the PA/PLO wants to establish an illusion of “Palestinian sovereignty” in Judea and Samaria that could serve to sabotage international recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the entire Judea and Samaria once at least 10 million Median Jews have immigrated to Israel.
While Israel for decades has prepared for the establishment of defensible borders by building indigenous strategic communities that would fashion the borders with a future Palestinian state, the Palestinian side has educated for Jihadism, Anti-Semitism and genocide. Each has its strategic vision and they are not mutually compatible.
Will Erdogan lose power to the CHP in the 2023 Turkish elections? Yes, it is very likely. In any case, the Sabbatean-controlled Derin Devlet undoubtedly sees the future of the Sabbatean Bektashis in Israel and is determined to facilitate Median Jewish Aliyah (immigration) to Israel from Turkey one way or another. Furthermore, the Derin Devlet generally has the last word in Turkish politics although it is quite reluctant to intervene. Therefore, we can be assured that Median Jewish mass Aliyah from Turkey is only a matter of time.
The PA has no interest whatsoever in a two-state solution and an end-of-claims final status agreement because their only agenda is to destroy Israel and exterminate the Jews. Israel in the past was interested in keeping open the option of a Palestinian state that would not include strategic indigenous communities of Judea and Samaria yet now that solution is utterly redundant. The only solution is Median Jewish mass Aliyah in the tens of millions with Israel redeeming and enfranchising the entire Judea and Samaria and Jordan subsequently annexing Gaza. That is the only road to peace and it is understandable that the genocidal Ramallah regime wants to do everything possible to prevent that.
