OBSTACLE TO PEACE

The US Role in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

by Jeremy R. Hammond

Forget what you think you know about the Israel-Palestine conflict.

Part 3. How Israel in 1948 committed Ethnic Cleansing of Palestinians, about 400,000 within days in first stage

And another 700,000 a few years later.

Points of Agreement after the Debate

Mantra: “Accept existence of the State of Israel if you want peace”. Of what kind of Israel are you talking?

Rania Masri on FB:

I keep hearing this mantra: accept the existence of the State of Israel if you want peace. What does that actually mean?

To accept the State of Israel as a Jewish State? To accept the borders, and which borders?  (Israel has no Constitution and never presented to the UN its borders)

To say that we won’t throw the Jewish Israelis into the sea?

People need to speak with greater clarity.

If the reference is to the acceptance of Israel as a Jewish State, then No.

No, because any state that gives greater rights to members of one group (in this case, a religion) over another cannot be democratic.

No, because any state that deems a group of people living within its borders (Palestinian citizens of Israel) and a people living under occupation (Palestinians) as a “demographic threat” cannot be peaceful. So, No.

Just as people rejected the existence of Apartheid South Africa and rejected the “state of the South” in the US as slave-holders, No to the existence of the State of Israel as a Jewish State.

If the reference is to acceptance of the borders – and which borders are those? – then, that implies both the existence of a sovereign, contiguous Palestinian State and the return of the Palestinian Refugees to their villages, as of the UN resolution of 193. If so, then yes.

As to throwing the Jewish Israelis into the sea — is that what is meant by rejecting the State of Israel? – then, of course not, I don’t call for that.

However, it is exactly what so many members of the Israeli Knesset, Israeli press, and a growing number of the Israeli public are asking for: ethnic cleansing of Palestinians
