The Two State Solution is Dead.
This statement is continually used by the anti-Netanyahu establishment attempting to foist the death of Peace on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the blame is unwarranted.
The political and diplomatic geniuses who say this are correct, the Peace Process is dead, but that is stating the obvious. Where they are wrong is in placing the blame on Netanyahu and the timing.
The Two State Solution was killed fifteen years ago, and Benjamin Netanyahu was not sitting in the Prime Minister’s chair.
I know, I was in East Jerusalem at the time, I saw first-hand the hand holding the dagger the dagger that killed peace.
Who was holding the assassin’s dagger, who struck down hope and peace? Yasser Arafat.
If you don’t believe me, maybe you will believe American President Bill Clinton. He lays out a crushing vision of the murder of peace by Arafat in his memoir My Life.
Clinton, makes it very clear that Israeli Prime Minster Ehud Barak accepted the peace parameters and Yasser Arafat, wavered and finally rejected them.
Arafat eventually came back to Clinton and wanted to sign the same agreement he had rejected. The problem for Arafat and the Palestinian People was that he came back well after he had started a war against the civilians of Israel.
Arafat came back after he learned that Israel was not the Spider Web Hasan Nasrallah had promised and that Israel was ready to fight for its existence, yet again.
By then Arafat had crushed any hope of peace. The citizens of Israel and their government had given too much and the treachery of Arafat was by then apparent.
Many in the Israeli media and the Israeli Left behave as if this crucial part of history never happened. This is unforgivable.
The re-invention of history by the foreign media is part of the delegitimization of the Jewish Nation state. Those who know better should not be taking part in this diplomatic crime.
Sadly for the Palestinian people, their leaders have never been interested in their well being, nor have they ever been truly committed to the “Two State Solution.” Instead they have always been more interested in rhetoric and re-inventing history. This was true when they rejected peace in defiance of international law in 1948, 1967, 2000 and 2008.
Today there is a new form of the old, anti-Semitic rhetoric used by the Palestinians. The new manifestation of the diplomatic terrorism being used against Israel lies in the BDS movement. Their goal is to re-write history. As a result, it’s incumbent on Israeli leaders, as well as conscientious American Jews, to fight the BDS Brownshirts on college campuses and wherever else this evil movement exists.
Revisionist history — the cloak of anti-Semitism must be crushed now as it was when Arafat walked out on a two-state solution.
