The Truth About Israel And Why The Two State Solution Is Dead.

David Ben-Gurion was the primary founder and the first Prime Minister of Israel.

David Ben-Gurion was the primary founder and the first Prime Minister of Israel.

“If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been anti-semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?”

David Ben-Gurion

 This is the truth about Israel. Even its most revered father of the nation recognises that his country’s actions are indefensible.  With the seizure of land, unlawful blockade and seige of Gaza and thousands of war crimes it is only getting worse. There is no room for any further equivocation. The IDF is systematically murdering defenceless civilians and revelling in it while politicians in the Knesset, even Moshe Feiglin, the deputy speaker,  are publishing polemics arguing for genocide of the Palestinian people.  Feiglin calls for “concentration and extermination” of the Gazan people,  terrifying words  that suggest a second holocaust. Source.

Like most British people I am absolutely behind Israel’s ‘right to exist’ but nothing endangers that more than its  government’s conduct. Over and over again, Israel has shown it cannot be trusted. I regret to say that perhaps the two state solution is impossible. The attitude and actions of Israel make it so. Perhaps we need to look at a one state solution – a free Palestine where Jew, Arab, Muslim, Christian and secular people can live together in peace. Israel has sown the seeds of its own destruction and nurtured them diligently with the blood of Palestinian children.  The  world must call a halt.

Assassination Is the Moral Option.

I am for assassination of Netanyahu and key Israeli government and military officers.

sniper4 rifleThis is the option that minimises casualties and puts most risk on professionals who have chosen their role.  Special forces would welcome this task.  They may bear heavy casualties before they succeed but they are volunteers and it is better than the death of civilians, particularly children.

It’s what we should have done with Saddam Hussein and what we should do with Assad.  In any circumstances, if there is justification for action that may result in civilian casualties, there is better justification for assassination.  It’s the moral option.
