Willful Deafness about the Real Meaning of Two States
Peggy Shapiro - Jun 15, 2009

The Palestinians, Saudis and Egyptians propose two states. The U.N., E.U.,
U.S. demand two states. Most Israeli governments have agreed to the concept
of two states. Other than Israel, none of the proponents of a "two-state"
solution ever planned for one of the states to be the Jewish State of

Just the thought of such a state is an insult to those who live in
all-Muslim countries. On Sunday, when Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin
Netanyahu offered a Palestinian State if there is recognition of a Israel as
the national homeland for Jewish people, a senior Palestinian negotiator
responded, "Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu can wait a thousand
years without finding a single Palestinian prepared to accept his
offer." The offer of living side-by-side in peace and tolerance is too
offensive to discuss even for the "moderate" Arab Egyptian President Hosni
Mubarak said the demand that Palestinians recognize Israel as the state of
the Jewish people "schuttles [sic] the chances for peace."

So what are these two states supposed to look like? The Arab spokesmen are
crystal clear on their intentions. One Judea/Samaria, a.k.a. the West Bank,
will be 100% Palestinian immediately. Not a single Jew will be allowed to
live there. It will be armed and ready to fire at close range into
Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa. If history is a guide, within a short time,
Hamas will challenge and beat the P.A., gain control and begin firing.

The other state, now Israel, will not only have to defend itself from
terrorist and rocket attacks on all borders, it will need to open its doors
to millions of Arabs, who have fabricated a “right” to return to Israel
rather than a “right” of return to a Palestinian State. Israel will then
face destruction from within. The new arrivals won`t need to take up arms;
they will just need to outnumber the Jews to take over. We all know that in
an Arab/Muslim majority nation, there will be no tolerance for Jews. (When
the Old City of Jerusalem was in Jordanian control, Jews were denied access
to the holiest of sites. The first buildings destroyed when the Palestinians
assumed control of Gaza were the synagogues. The examples of Muslim
intolerance for Judaism and other religions are endless.) This new state
will be a dangerous place for Jews, who will face the choice of flight
or merciless subjugation and possible death.

So what does the White House have to say about the two-state solution the
Arabs have in mind? The President certainly doesn’t publicly chastise the
Palestinian and other Arabs who reject a Jewish state as he did Israel’s
Prime Minister for rejecting another terrorist state on Israel’s border.
There is no White House pressure on Palestinians as there was on Israel’s
government. The President praises the proposal for two states as an
`important step` forward even though Palestinians and their Arab brothers
have for over 60 years flatly rejected countless proposals for two-states if
one of those states happens to be Jewish. The president `believes this
solution can and must ensure both Israel`s security and the fulfillment of
the Palestinians` legitimate aspirations for a viable state.`

It cannot do both. Fulfilling the Palestinian aspirations of a state means
the destruction of the Jewish state. Does the President not hear what the
Arabs are saying? Is he as willfully deaf to their demands for Israel’s
demise as he was to his pastor’s sermons negating Israel’s right to exist?
