Palestinian Statehood in Perspective May 30, 2009

Posted by Daniel Downs in federal government, foreign policy, Iran, Israel, Middle East, news, Palestinian state, politics, Syria, United Nations, United States.

Our federal government supports a Palestinian State for several reasons: One reason is the imperial necessity of creating and maintaining a Middle East block of unfettered free trade. Conflicts between Arab states as well as between Arab states and Israel prevent it. A second reason is the goal of Arabs themselves. The unvanquished goal of Muslims in the Middle East is a unified Arab league of nations. One of the Quranic directives is the establishment of a unified Middle East under one successor of the prophet. The Zionist state, Israel, is a roadblock to their plans. The current presidents of Iran and Syria continually attest to this fact. Of course, the elimination or subjugation of Israel would also result in a successful and more prosperous economic block for both the Arabs and the West. A third goal is the glorification of United Nations world socialism. The unending hype over the poor Palestinians and the injustices perpetrated by Israel’s occupation is reminiscent of India’s experience of Muslim socialism as described by Dr. Chowdary.

As in India, socialism or secular is a cloak for satisfying Muslim’s unending minority complaints in order to get in to stay in political office. The price for this special interest favoritism is end truth, virtue, equality, and democracy. This is true of the Palestinian cause as well. Palestinian refugees serve the same purpose as socialist or secular does in India. The difference is that the Palestinians never have had a true secular and democratic history as has India.

My opinion should not be taken seriously without some proof. To this end, the following are excerpts from reputed sources to demonstrate that the goal of Muslim Arabs is the end of an independent Israeli state, that the Palestinians already have a state, and that the Palestinians in Israel and Gaza cannot rule themselves.

End of the Independent State of Israel

After a recent meeting in Damascus, Syrian President Assad and Iranian President Ahmadinejad made the following joint-statement:

“…the continued support of the Palestinian resistance and of the Iraqi government until the withdrawal of the [Israeli and American] occupiers is one of Iran and Syria’s top priorities.” (ISNA, May 6, 2009)

Where are the Jews to withdraw? To the pre-1948 borders? To the sea? To the governance of the Arabs?

Actually, according to an in Wikipedia, Ahmadinejad prefers annihilation. As quoted in the Jerusalem Post, President Assad holds similar sentiments. (August 18, 2006) This was and still is the goal of the Arab League of Nations, meaning all Arab-Muslim nations in the Middle East.

An explanation for these genocidal expressions is not merely because of Israel military conflicts with Palestinians or Hezbollah. Can Israel be seriously condemned for bombing Palestinians or Lebanese sites from which armed missiles were launched against Israel towns and civilian homes? Arab-Muslims like Ahmadinejad and Assad do. I suspect the real reason, however, is the Zionist existence in what was a once Arab occupied land.

According to Dr. Chowdary, this is the same historical goal of the Muslims in India. That is, total domination of India as it supposedly once was.

To eliminate all doubt about the goal to destroy the Jews and their nation, consider the following statement of Abbas Zaki, the PLO’s ambassador to Lebanon.

“With the two-state solution, in my opinion, Israel will collapse, because if they get out of Jerusalem, what will become of all the talk about the Promised Land and the Chosen People? What will become of all the sacrifices they made – just to be told to leave? They consider Jerusalem to have a spiritual status. The Jews consider Judea and Samaria to be their historic dream. If the Jews leave those places, the Zionist idea will begin to collapse. It will regress of its own accord. Then we will move forward.”

And what does he mean by move forward?

“Let me tell you, when the ideology of Israel collapses, and we take, at least, Jerusalem, the Israeli ideology will collapse in its entirety, and we will begin to progress with our own ideology, Allah willing, and drive them out of all of Palestine.” (MEMRI, May 14, 2009)

Remember, the original objective of Hitler was only to drive the Jews out of Germany and into Palestine. The Palestinian Umma was able to convince League of Nation officials, British officials, fellow fascist Mussolini, and others to block Hitler’s forced-migration efforts.

The Palestinian Nation-State

In a recent interview, statements about Palestinians and Jordanians made by Lebanese scholar Farid Salman lead one to the conclusion that citizens of Jordan are all Palestinians. This being the case Jordan is the Palestinians’ nation-state.

The following are excerpts from his interview:

“Jordan is an invention. Transjordan, which was an emirate, and later became the Hashemite Kingdom, is part of Palestine. Britain created it in order to crown one of the sons of Hussein, from the Arabian Peninsula, over part of Greater Syria – over Palestine.” (MEMRI, May 26, 2009)

What Salman means is that the entire region was originally one Arab kingdom or state. To Salman and all Muslims, the current land divisions in the Middle East are not legitimate but one Muslim nation is.

He went on to say,

“I don’t know whether to laugh or cry when I hear a Jordanian say that he is a Jordanian, and that there are Palestinian refugee camps in Jordan. He has forgotten that he is a Palestinian.” (MEMRI, May 26, 2009)

If all Jordanians are Palestinians, then all Palestinians, whether in Jordan, Gaza, or the West Bank, already have a Palestinian state.

Arabs on the Possibilities of Another Palestinian State

Egypt’s first lady Jehan al-Sadat told a reporter that it was Arab leaders who refused to follow her husband in establishing peace with Israel. Based on the recent conflict in Gaza, many Arabs now realize that Anwar al-Sadat saved Egypt from a similar disaster. The disaster she speaks of is both the division of the Palestinian people as well as the many deaths. Israel’s retaliation has results in many unnecessary deaths. (MEMRI, May 21, 2009)

What the First Lady, Ahmadinejad, and most Arab-Muslim fail to mention is how Jihadists intentionally put innocent civilians (non-combatants) in harms way. The militants claim to follow the Quran in doing so. They make all Palestinians martyrs for the cause and the Western media-generated opinion. Hezbollah practices the same thing.

A 30-year-old woman working in one of the Palestinian Authority ministries said,

“We are telling the world that we don’t deserve a state because we are murdering each other and destroying our universities, colleges, mosques and hospitals.” (Jerusalem Post, February 4, 2007)

She was referring to the Fatah-Hamas conflict and division of Palestinian people that began in 2007.

In perspective, our federal government should acknowledge the fact that a Palestinian state already exists. Our supposed-representatives should also acknowledge the stated goals of the Arab, Muslim, and Palestinian officials is the elimination of the Israel from the Middle East. As such, they should either cease efforts to support the determined destruction of the independent state of the Israel or open avow that the goals of empire than the future of Israeli Jews. In practice, however, it seems the latter has been the position of our government officials all along.
