The One State Solution Is Unworkable

My letter published in the Indypendent - 10 March 2010

One state will never work.

Firstly it denies Jews the national homeland in Palestine promised to them by the League of Nations and the United Nations.

Secondly Jews and Arabs lived together in Palestine for 70 years until 1948 - years that were marked by bitterness, confrontation, constant assaults and killing of the Jews on many occasions such as 1920,1929 and 1936 as they then were the minority population with little to defend themselves. They might now be the majority but the level of civil disobedience shown by the current Arab population in Israel does not inspire any confidence that the two peoples can co-exist on a friendly and peaceful basis.

The only solution is the separation of the Jewish and Arab populations in the West Bank. This can best be achieved by Jordan and Israel dividing sovereignty of the West Bank between their respective States. The West Bank Arabs will become Jordanian citizens again as they were between 1950-1988, the Jews will remain as Israeli citizens and no one need leave his current home.

If only Israel had done it God's way at the beginning instead of making the US your idol(false god)
Your plan will also fail because you leave Him out and surrender more land to His enemies that is not yours to surrender.

When are you Jews going to get back to Tanach ?

27I will send My terror before you and will throw into confusion all the people to whom you shall come, and I will make all your foes turn from you [in flight].
28And I will send hornets before you which shall drive out the Hivite, Canaanite, and Hittite from before you.
29I will not drive them out from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate [for lack of attention] and the wild beasts multiply against you.
30Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased and are numerous enough to take possession of the land.
31I will set your borders from the Red Sea to the Sea of the Philistines, and from the wilderness to the river [Euphrates]; for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hand and you shall drive them out before you.
32You shall make no covenant with them or with their gods.
33They shall not dwell in your land, lest they make you sin against Me; for if you serve their gods, it will surely be a snare to you.
Exodus 23
