OLMERT'S PLAN OF "ONE STATE" for all its peoplesby Emanuel A. Winston, a Middle East Analyst & Commentator
The following may make sense to those who studied Israel's evolvement since 1948. I could go back further but, this is to be an article and not a 600 page book.
Every indication demonstrates that Israel's Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, his entourage and the corps of the Left started out with the idea of a "Two-State Solution" by evacuating Judea, Samaria and those parts of Jerusalem occupied and desecrated by Jordan for 19 years from 1948 to 1967. Jordan annexed Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem - illegally - a move recognized by only Great Britain and Muslim Pakistan.
The ill-gotten concept of a "Two-State Solution" gained form in the early 1980s when Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres started to confer (illegally) in the early 1980s with the father of today's "Jihadist" Terrorism, Yassir Arafat, to drive the Jews out of the territories Israel liberated in the 1967 Six Days' War. Arafat, Rabin and Peres wanted the Jews to turn over all housing, farms, infrastructure, water, electric grids, roads, etc. to the incoming Arab Muslim Palestinians who were to be ejected from Jordan, Syria, Iran and Lebanon into vacated territory. That same plan remained under Oslo and is now extended under the "Road Map" for Judea, Samaria and those parts of Jerusalem illegally occupied by Jordan, only recognized by Great Britain and Muslim Pakistan.
This was in the belief that the Arab Muslims could be pacified with assets built by the Jews and taken from the Jews, including their ancient G-d given Land. This was an unproven idea merely thought up by Peres, Yossi Beilin and various Leftist academics which was sold to Yitzhak Rabin. This was mostly pre-Olso but it morphed into the full Oslo Accords, negotiated in secret and signed September 13, 1993 on the White House lawn.
They believed they could appease Muslim Arab Palestinians and take revenge on observant Jewish settlers whom they considered their ideological adversaries. In fact, the Leftists of the elite who controlled the government, the Media and the Courts were driven more by a visceral hatred of fellow observant Jews than the Arab Muslims who pledged to destroy them all.
That hatred blossomed from the time of David Ben Gurion who planned to control all government functions to insure that observant Jews would never come to political power. The political anger peaked in the Altalena attack where Ben Gurion gave the order to Yitzhak Rabin to sink the ship carrying Holocaust survivors and arms for the newly born country of Israel - and Menachem Begin, who Ben Gurion considered was his chief rival for political power.
Rabin gave his men the order to shoot the Jews swimming from the sinking boat to shore. The attitude of the Left never changed, although it adopted more civilized forms of attack and control. Tragically, twenty Hebrew fighters were killed by their Jewish brethren and the arms lost.
Israel, at first, was to be one nation and homeland for the Jews and they fought many wars against attacking Arab and Muslim nations to keep her secure and sovereign. But, actually, Israel was always a politically divided nation from the beginning. There were the observant Jews who saw the Land as a gift from G-d who had redeemed His Promises to return the Jews to their Land which He had promised to Moshe, Avraham, Isaac and Jacob - for the Jews in perpetuity.
Other (mostly secular) Jews - particularly those of the Labor Left Party - believed that de-Judaizing the Jewish nation of Israel would make Israel more acceptable to the other nations and the Arab Muslims. The theory being that Jews, therefore, would no longer be pursued and persecuted simply because they were Jews. From that time to this - nothing changed and Jews believed the Land was sustained and thrived only under Jews as it always had.
The Ben Gurion Doctrine of pacification which grew under his followers failed but the Left simply refused to recognize the reality of their failure. So, they continued to appease whenever possible. That policy morphed into a phase where the idea of a "divided State" was beginning to be spoken about by the Bush Administration and, regrettably, accepted by the Leftist elite.
The ruling elitists of the Left decided that the Land settled by observant Jews was to be traded for that elusive "peace" they longed for - to be accepted and liked by the "others". The Land that was won in successive wars at great cost in lives and treasure which the Arab Muslims initiated with the proclaimed and stated intent of slaughtering all the Jews in Israel while occupying all the Land in Israel. The Muslims swore to "dance in the blood of the Jews" which was meant in its most literal sense.
The Left and non-observant Jews insisted that the Muslim Arabs could be appeased by gifts of Land or later as they adopted the catchy phrase: "Land for Peace". As it turned out, abandoning the Land did not bring peace but rather elevated the expectation that the Jews could be beaten because they were showing the weakness of a people ready to be conquered.
So the thoughts of a two-State solution as now pushed by the Bush Administration and the Europeans under the "Road Map" slogan began to morph into yet another phase: "The Single State". This, of course, was not shared with the Israeli people - either Left or Right. Such plans were to have only a limited audience. Here we find the power elites of Olmert, Foreign Minister Tzippi Livni, Defense Minister Ehud Barak, President Shimon Peres and the founding families of Israel's three powerful newspapers, Ma'ariv, Yediot Ahronot and Ha'aretz. Add to that the Supreme Court - selected and driven by Leftist doctrine.
The "Two-State" Solution clearly held different meanings for the Arab Muslims led by Yassir Arafat, his subsequent heirs (Abbas) and the Jews who created Oslo and the Gaza evacuation who thought they would get "Peace for Land".
The Arab Muslims never believed in "Two-States", living side-by-side but, IF the Americans and Europeans bought the sham, so much the better.
After the example of surrendering and evacuating the 10,000 Jewish men, women from the bountiful Gush Katif in Gaza, the concept of a "two-State Solution" was growing less viable. If Gaza, Judea and Samaria were to fall into the Hands of Fatah and Hamas among all the other Terrorists then the abandoned territories would become a firing base able to reach all of Israel...the west coastal lands with 70% of Israel's population and industrial base, the Ben Gurion International Airport and to the East - the Eternal Holy Jewish Capital of Jerusalem since King David established it and King Solomon constructed the Holy Temple.
Now we enter a phase supported silently by Olmert and the Bush regime ...the "One-State" co-mingling Muslims and Jews. It was thought that, IF the ruling elite could de-Judaize the Jewish nation by making it a mix of Arab Muslims and non-Jewish Jews into one nation, then in theory the Muslim Arabs would have no reason to launch missiles. The idea of a "one-State solution" sounded good to the Left and American Arabists but, as always, ignored the Muslim Arabs goal to cleanse the Land of all non-Muslims - especially Christians and Jews. A small example of this is Bethlehem and areas where Christian Arabs once lived but is now almost empty of Christians. The Muslims took over and simply drove them out. But, you haven't seen that story on television or in the newspapers, have you?
Imagine, if you will, the 3 to 5 million Muslim Arab Palestinians descendants flooding into Israel from Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Iran and Iraq, etc. The original number who left Israel during the 1948 War for Independence was 650,000 out of 800,000 (leaving 140,000 Arabs) who lived west of the Jordan River. Now they count them up to five million. 850,000 Jews were driven out of all the Muslim Arab nations where they had lived for 2 centuries - as "Dhimmis" (low, second class citizens) as they were under Muslim rule and Sharia Law.
The Leftists felt that, as non-Jews the Arab Muslims will live in peace as neighbor to neighbor and no longer despise the Jews. That as a single nation together, all will be well and peaceful. The naive and delusional Left wishes to believe that Koranic doctrine will not prevail and the Jews will be able to live as free men and women in a mixed society governed by Arabs and Jews. That the Jews and Christians will not become "Dhimmis". But, now they will be equal to Muslims under the Sharia Law.
I have little doubt that the Arabs will keep the productive Jews around because of their technical skills. Those not eliminated will become like docile cattle or well-fed slaves.
If one goes back in history, whenever the warriors of Islam conquered a nation, they fed on the accomplishments of a superior society and used them until they were used out. Then, all reverted to the backward society, ruled by Mullahs and Imams.
Would you care to guess at the time line that Jerusalem would be made "Judenrein" under the Islamists?
How long before the Temple Mount of King Solomon would become a Mosque - as was done to the Burial Cave of the Machpelah where our forefathers and mothers are buried: Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Leah, Jacob and Rebecca?
How long before all the Jews now living free in Israel are driven out from their G-d given Land of their patriarchs or simply murdered in the joyous Genocide promised to their crazed Islamo-fascists, radical Muslims, "militant" Terrorists, Islamic leaders whose proclaimed goal is a Global Caliphate where everyone is ruled by Sharia Islam?
This is the legacy that Olmert and his Leftists intend to leave their fellow Jews. This is what the Bush family, assisted by Condoleezza Rice and James Baker III wish to see in their lifetimes as the appeasement of the Arab Muslims - for the sake of free flowing, oil at usurious prices.
If you confronted Ehud Olmert and his Leftist collaborators with the question: "How could you betray your Jewish "neshama" (soul), they would rush to have that soul surgically removed by an shaman (witch-doctor) who could claim they knew exactly where such a soul resides."
The idea of "one-State" devoid of her Jews is well underway, while the pretense of a "two-State Solution" for all her people is dangled in front of the Israeli people. Even a "Two-State Solution" would be merely a staged formula where the Jewish half would disappear, leaving one Muslim-dominated State.
For inexplicable reasons Jews must nurture a suicidal gene of avoidance - except for some who truly understand the rich heritage their Judaism gives them and their families. A large number of Christians do not shut their eyes to the gathering of the nations against the Jewish State. They do not blind themselves to the fallibility of a President who claims to a born-again status, only to see him having fallen back into the pit from which he emerged - IF he ever did.
Always in the shadows is James Baker III, the evil advisor to President Bush. Baker hates the Jewish State as if he is a modern day Inquisitor. Baker advised former President George Herbert Walker Bush; he advises George W. Bush; he advises the current Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Baker is believed to be the original author of the infamous "Road Map" and now he is the Middle East advisor to the Presidential candidate John McCain.
So, what happens to nations that stick their finger in the Eye of G-d.
America's financial systems are in a state of free fall as the dollar crashes. Friday night a tornado ripped through the city of Atlanta. England and Spain, no special friends of Israel, experienced 80 MPH winds. There is more coming beyond wind and tornadoes quite soon. That will be payment for making the Jewish State another nation for Muslims to terrorize, wrap their women in full-length sheets, and shoot any people who disagree with their methods. That is a price no sane people will wish to pay.
As Olmert betrays Israel, Hezb'Allah, Hamas, Syria, Iran gets ready to assault the Jewish State with a saturation missile attack. (Yes, the Jewish State of Israel must suffer greatly because they allowed a hideous Jew-hating government to assault its own people and did nothing to stop them.)
One last reminder: During a battle between the Hebrews and the Canaanites, the Holy Ark of the Covenant was taken by the Philistines. Soon the Philistines began to die from a mysterious plague. The Philistines begged the Hebrews to take back the Ark. When it was back in the hands of the Hebrews, the plague stopped.
All of Israel is exactly like the Holy Ark of the Covenant. When parts of the Land are stolen or given away, a plague descends upon us - or our enemies.
Sharon, Olmert and Bush surrendered Gaza and it turned into a plague for the Muslim Arabs and those Jews who gave it away.
