Peace does not Need a Two-State Solution

If those who erroneously call themselves Palestinians want peace, they do not need a two-state solution to have peace. They could choose peace over Iranian backed terrorists at any time.

All they have to do is live in peace to have peace. Without the willingness to live in peace, nothing can force people to choose peace. A personal desire must be there.

Launching missiles into Israel, and other terrorist actions are not signs of having peaceful desire. There is nothing peaceful about terrorists who want to destroy Israel.

Wanting to kill people at random because of their nationality is not a sign of peace. It is a sign of violent hatred. Hatred and peace cannot coexist, since the brain allows for one or the other.

Here is a solution not discussed by anyone that does not require another two-state solution that failed the last time.

Rather than taking land from Israel, which the nation cannot give up and still be defensible against terrorist rockets, work towards becoming Israelis. Israeli Arabs, Christians and Muslims alike, are protected under Israeli law, and are thriving in all aspects, including judges and governmental officials.

Nothing is denied Israeli Arabs. Christians and Arabs largely live in peace with Jewish people.

Start by forcing out the Iranian backed terrorists. Turn them in to the IDF or send them packing to Iran. That shows a clear desire for peace with Israel.

Israel has gone to the negotiating table numerous times and offered everything, including another second state. They have been refused every time by those who only want every Israeli dead. If the only ones at the negotiating table who want peace are Israelis, it does not matter what the Israelis offer. It will never be enough as long as Israel continues to exist.

That is the element that must be removed. Those with hatred for Israel will never settle for peace of any kind. Removing them sends a clear signal peace is desired.

By removing the terrorists, it will show those who call themselves Palestinians that they do want peace. That is what has been lacking.

Once there is actual readiness for peace, which is removal of terrorists who preach hatred, petition the Israeli government for citizenship. If equal protection under the law is all that is desired, then Israel already offers that to all her citizens.

What would a second two-state solution offer that Israel does not? If the objective is peace and equality under the law, Israeli citizenship is the natural solution that is not even discussed by those who believe peace can be forced.

Peace does not need a two-state solution. It needs a one-state solution under the proven government of Israel. All it requires is for those who call themselves Palestinians to live in peace.
