Netanyahu-Wing Zionists Join Hamas in Rejecting Two State Solution

- A Radical Dispatch

Netanyahu’s government has started to openly reject the idea of a two state solution for the Middle East crisis. A necessary implication of this stance is the outright rejection of a Palestinian state.

Israel’s ambassador to London Tzipi Hotovely confirmed her Likud government’s policy for Sky News UK.

Do they (Palestinians) have a state though?

Tzipi Hotovely: The answer is absolutely no, and I’ll tell you why..Israel knows today and the world should know now, the reason the Oslo accords failed is because the Palestinians never wanted to have a state next to Israel. They wanted to have a state from the river to the sea.

So the two state solution is dead?

Tzipi Hotovely: Why are you obsessed with a formulae that never worked, that created these radical people in the other side, why are you obsessed with that?

Ambassador Hotovely’s insistence that there has never been a partner for peace on the Palestinian side is rather strange, and her concern around the slogan ‘from the river to the sea’ rather disingenuous.

This is because her own rejection of the two-state solution is on the record in the Israeli Knesset from a decade ago, as is her own use of the very phrase ‘from the river to the sea’ to describe what she wants for Israel.

The Middle East Eye reports 15th December 2023:

The Israeli ambassador, however, has long held views denying the possibility of a Palestinian state and even wrote a policy paper on the steps Israel should take to prevent one.

Na'amod, a UK-based Jewish organisation that opposes the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land, has translated Tzipi Hotovely’s essay ‘The five-stage plan for the Greater Land of Israel’, written in 2013 when she was a member of the Knesset, the Israeli parliament.

In the essay, Hotovely writes, ‘The long years of propaganda for the vision of 'two states for two peoples' have obstructed the most basic desire harboured by a majority of Israeli citizens - not to give up territory that was conquered through blood…’

..In 2010, Hotovely, then the youngest Likud Knesset member, argued that a ‘bi-national danger’ is preferable to a Palestinian state.

‘In the bi-national process we have a degree of control, but the moment you abandon the area to the Palestinian entity, what control do you have over what will happen there?’ she said.

I want it to be clear that I do not recognise the national rights of Palestinians in the Land of Israel. I recognise their human rights and their individual rights, and also their individual political rights - but between the sea and Jordan there is room for one state, a Jewish state.“

As Radical Media stated, and contrary to being a terrorist’s chant for genocide, ‘from the river to the sea’ also happens to be the Likud party’s original 1977 party policy position.

Radical Media reports 22 November 2023:

Ambassador Hotovely’s rejection of a two state solution - hence rejecting Palestinian statehood - was then repeated by Israel’s former ambassador to London and current senior advisor to Netanyahu, Mark Regev.

Should the Palestinians if they have a state, should they be able to sign, let’s say a military agreement, military treaty with Iran? Should they be able to have an army and air force? Should they have all those military powers that could theoretically threaten the state of Israel? And the answer, in our view, is clearly no.

Mark Regev’s logic here is that the Palestinians cannot be trusted with a state because they cannot be trusted with the use of violence, over which the state owns a monopoly.

As Radical Media reported, such logic appears rather convoluted when considering that for years Israel has clearly had a policy of propping up the terrorist group Hamas for the specific purpose of thwarting a Palestinian state.

In other words, the violence that Israel now bemoans was facilitated by Israel in order to bring about the desired aim of pointing to that violence as the very reason why Palestinian statehood must be denied.

For years, the various governments led by Benjamin Netanyahu took an approach that divided power between the Gaza Strip and the West Bank — bringing Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to his knees while making moves that propped up the Hamas terror group.

The idea was to prevent Abbas — or anyone else in the Palestinian Authority’s West Bank government — from advancing toward the establishment of a Palestinian state

..Most of the time, Israeli policy was to treat the Palestinian Authority as a burden and Hamas as an asset. Far-right MK Bezalel Smotrich, now the finance minister in the hardline government and leader of the Religious Zionism party, said so himself in 2015..

..According to various reports, Netanyahu made a similar point at a Likud faction meeting in early 2019, when he was quoted as saying that those who oppose a Palestinian state should support the transfer of funds to Gaza, because maintaining the separation between the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and Hamas in Gaza would prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state.”

This is something that Netanyahu himself is no longer even denying.

Before this ongoing October 7th crisis, peace activists who had been calling for a one state solution would be regularly reprimanded by the insistence that this proposal would mean the end of Israel as a ‘Jewish state’. The common rebuttal was that the idea of one state that governs both Jews and Arabs would soon end up with Jews being a minority in their own ‘homeland’ due to demographic issues. It is for this very purpose that Netanyahu’s Likud passed the basic nationality law, that sought to preserve the Jewish character of the Israeli state.

The Guardian reports 10th March 2019:

Benjamin Netanyahu has said Israel is ‘not a state of all its citizens', in a reference to the country’s Arab population. In comments on Instagram, the prime minister went on to say all citizens, including Arabs, had equal rights, but he referred to a deeply controversial law passed last year declaring Israel the nation state of the Jewish people. ‘Israel is not a state of all its citizens’, he wrote in response to criticism from an Israeli actor, Rotem Sela. ‘According to the basic nationality law we passed, Israel is the nation state of the Jewish people – and only it.”

Considering the above, there appear to be only two directions remaining for Netanyahu’s now openly admitted aim of maintaining Israel as the sole military occupier for the entire region, including the West Bank and Gaza.

By pursuing the notion of one Israeli state for the entire region, Israel would either slowly lose its Jewish character entirely due to Palestinian population growth, or become an apartheid state in order to maintain its Jewish character. Likud are facing a stark choice between these two options. Neither are long term solutions for the state of Israel. Both pose existential risk.

It is in this context that Netanyahu’s stated aim of ‘thinning’ out the Palestinian population begins to really hit home.

Radical Media reports 13th December 2023, from the Intercept:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has tasked his top adviser, Ron Dermer, the minister of strategic affairs, with designing plans to “thin” the Palestinian population in the Gaza Strip “to a minimum,” according to a bombshell new report in an Israeli newspaper founded by the late Republican billionaire Sheldon Adelson.” 

Here is the original Hebrew report that the above Intercept article is based on:

To bomb a civilian area with the stated aim of wanting to “thin” out its population is nothing short of ethnic cleansing. It is a war crime. There are no two ways about it, those who defend Netanyahu’s shameful war on Gaza are advocating for war crimes.

Beyond that, “Thinning” a population is not possible unless a media facilitated dehumanisation of the targeted populace occurs first. It is here that Geert Wilders incredibly dangerous recent speech about ‘defeating Islam in Europe’ must land. Wilders is seeking to provoke Netanyahu’s desired false-flag attack in Europe, so that a civilisational war between Islam and the West may be pursued. This is how Netanyahu plans to bolster Western support for his one state solution. In order to achieve this, he must provoke war.

Radical Media has been warning of an impending false flag attack - facilitated by Netanyahu - in Europe.

Perhaps this very dilemma of turning Israel into an apartheid state in order to maintain its Jewish character under Netanyahu’s desired one state solution, is what US Secretary of Defence Lloyd Austin meant when he said, as reported here via Radical Media, that Israel is ”headed towards a tactical victory but strategic defeat”.

Of course, letting the civil war genie out of its bottle in Europe does not guarantee the desired result. Once unleashed, chaos cannot be so easily contained.

Perhaps this is why US Colonel (retd.) Douglas Macgregor has taken to issuing such dire warnings on his social media feeds.

US Colonel (retd.) Macgregor:

The United States has become a society in free fall. We don't even know who we are. We don't have an identity. We stand by and watch as the federal government and its armed supporters and the civil populace deface monuments and tear down monuments, destroy our heritage, our culture, our history. Europeans watch this and they say, well, it looks like the Americans are finished. And at the same time, if you look at someone like Olaf Schultz, who now wants to declare emergency conditions in Germany on the grounds that Germany has to be ready to fight Russia, which is of course laughable. In reality, he's trying to prepare his regime to suppress opposition to it inside Germany. That is appalling, but that's where he's headed. I wouldn't be surprised if Mr. Macron doesn't end up in the same position. All of these governments in the West are going to be swept away. They're finished. They're done. Their populations have had it with them. They are going to be replaced, but they're not going to be replaced by the people or people like the individuals that are currently governing Western Europe or this country.

Considering the stakes above, if peace is not urgently pursued then a more global civil war within and between nations is clearly on the table.

Such an outcome would mean total bedlam. It is obvious why this outcome must be resisted.

In this light, George Galloway’s recent response to Piers Morgan’s question about Hamas terrorism is important.

October 7th terrorism. You wanna talk to me Piers about terrorism? The people running Israel today invented modern terrorism. They tried to murder Winston Churchill when he was fighting Adolf Hitler. They tried to bomb the Foreign Office when we were at war with Adolf Hitler. They murdered a British minister Lord Moyne. They murdered the United Nations envoy Count Bernadotte. They murdered British soldiers, service people, policemen, civil servants. They invented terrorism. There’s a reason, you know, why the late Her Majesty the Queen never, ever, ever visited Israel. Although she want everywhere else in the world. She would never visit Israel. Why? Because British citizens, servicemen, policemen, civil servants, British government institutions were murdered and destroyed by terrorists from exactly the same political organisation founded by Jabotinsky, calling themselves Revisionists, fashioning themselves upon Mussolini’s fascism. These people are running Israel today. That’s why the Queen never went there. She refused to go there.”

Neither side owns any moral high ground, and Israel faces some very difficult decisions in the very near future.

Netanyahu may be staring down the world in order to force his one state solution, but Israel is fast losing the strategic long game. Only a dose of humility can bring those engaged in zero-sum game cosmic wars to the negotiating table. Netanyahu may have to learn this the hard way.
