Is Israel bluffing again? Defense minister Ehud Barack wants to unilaterally withdraw from West Bank…

Israel Defense minister Ehud Barack warned a couple of days ago that Israel is contemplating a “unilateral (military?) withdrawal from the West Bank to temporary borders if negotiation with Mahmoud Abbas fails or is not resumed…”

Israel has a string of “unilateral decisions” in its short history. For example:

1. Ehud Barack, then Israel PM, withdrew unilaterally from South Lebanon in 2000, after 22 years of occupation. The withdrawal was done without any negotiation or any pre-conditions after Israel suffered hundreds of casualties in the relentless attacks of the Hezbollah fighters…

2. Ariel Sharon withdrew unilaterally from Gaza in 2005 after the cost of maintaining four small Jewish colonies there became a heavy burden on Israel budget, in a region populated by 1.5 million Palestinians lead by radical Islamists Hamas…

3. Israel “unilaterally”, or that’s the US version, bombed the Iraqi nuclear plant in 1980…

4. Israel “unilaterally”, or that’s the US version, bombed Syria nuclear plant in 2007…

5. Israel “unilaterally” conducted the preemptive war in 1967

6. Israel “unilaterally” invaded Lebanon in 1982 and entered the capital Beirut.

7. Israel “unilaterally” decided to kick out the Palestinian military factions from Lebanon in 1982

8. Israel “unilaterally” decided to commit the genocide in the Palestinian refugee camps of Sabra and Chatila in Lebanon in 1982…

9. Israel “unilaterally” drew its borders to be at the Jordan River and wants to keep settlements right to the river so that the Palestinians will have no direct borders with the State of Jordan…

10. Israel “unilaterally” decided that the Golan Heights in Syria are parts of Israel and is willing to pressure Syria to agree, lest civil war will ravage Syria…

11. Israel “unilaterally” decided that the UN partition of Palestine is none of her concern, and occupied the 47% of the remaining land bestowed by the UN in 1947 to the Palestinians who constituted 60% of the total population…

Ehud Barack claimed that the current Israeli coalition or “unity government” is backed by 94 deputies in the Knesset and can decide whatever pleases her “interests” and drastic plans, such as completely annexing  Zone C in the West Bank…

Ehud Barack is returning the challenge of Mahmoud Abbas, the illegal President of the Palestinian Authority, who threatened to resign and let Israel shoulder the entire burden as an occupying force in the West Bank…

Ehud Barack is saying: “If there is no Palestinian Authority, Israel will withdraw and let hells burn the Palestinians…” Obviously, Israel has no intention of withdrawing or having any peace treaty with the Palestinians…

Antoine Shalhat, (Palestinian/Israeli citizen residing in Akka and correspondent to the daily Al Nahar, reported that Shimon Shafer wrote in Israel daily Yadeot Ahranot that Netanyahu PM said in a “secret close meeting with the Israeli top security and military officers, and economic leaders…” that the Palestinian problem is fifth in priority in the current government agenda. The priorities are:

1. Iran nuclear threat

2. Hezbollah missile threat

3. Ciber war

4. The increased accumulation of weapon systems in the region…

The current mood in Israel is: “Resolving the Palestinian issue will not solve Israel many and news problems to confront…” It is Israel strategy since its creation to fabricate external false difficulties in order to distract Israeli deep-rooted convictions that Israel legitimacy is at best pretty precarious. 

And what could be the “temporary borders” for withdrawal? Behind the Wall of Shame? Will Israel withdraw from East Jerusalem?
