A false sense of entitlement on the part of many Palestinian Arabs to the entire land of Israel is a key source of fuel for the fire of motivating their people to terror. International Law, and thousands of years of anticipated biblical reality run contrary to such beliefs. By reducing that false impression, the foundation for terror can be undercut and true peace have a chance to reign in the land. Even handed attitudes towards the naturally greater rights to the land that Israel possesses confuses the masses and allows a window for manipulation by political leaders who support terror. Therefore the policy path of choice, is to not encourage a discussion of rights to the land at all, since the other side has shown a willingness to not care for the truth, whether written in the bible or signed by them. Rather unilateral steps towards annexation and naturalization combined with negotiation of optimum implementation with non belligerent Palestinian leadership and PR (hasbara) before the international community of the reasons that this is the best path to peace by a joint hasbara committee whose membership includes both Israelis and Palestinians who are highly supportive of the idea.
If so, and if Palestinian leadership is suspect in it's ability to leave behind it's love of terror, then how could this work?
National level political leaders of the PLO have been corrupt and or bloodthirsty. But many communal leaders have worked peacefully with Israel from the start. Therefore a group of mayors from small towns are most likely to be an example of a resource pool for such a committee of politicians committed to true peace more than hope that anyone in the Palestinian pseudo parliament could be counted on.
At the communal level, politicians are concerned primarily with job opportunities and city services, so even a wicked person in such a post is inherently used to doing what's best for people. At the national level, personal character traits and weaknesses can make or break a politician. This is true for any democracy. Only I hope the Palestinians in Judea, Samaria (the West Bank) and Gaza will benefit from a true democracy, not the fledgling terror state in the making that their national leaders are trying to form. Allowing them to join their cousins in Israel as a part of a true democracy would be a better kindness than forcing them to be under the rule of terrorists.
What is true democracy? I am writing to you today from New England on this anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America, I can tell you that the Palestinians are not currently on the path to one. Voting for despots has nothing whatever to do with liberty and justice for all. The ability to elect and peacefully remove if necessary representatives that aid you in delivering good to your family is the foundation of liberty. The Palestinians do not have that. The Oslo accords cannot deliver that to them either. The longer they follow that path, the hand of terrorists is strengthened because they "tried the path to peace and it didn't work." Replacing the false path to peace with one that can actually work, is the only way to do it and the sooner the better.
What is hasbara ad for the current false path to peace, "Palestinians, you get to democratically choose which terrorist organization should rule over you.This is your Hell, enjoy it. Meanwhile we will enjoy the best democracy in the Middle East, please don't be jealous." What is the hasbara ad for a united State of Israel. "This is our taste of Heaven, let us share and enjoy it together." May it soon be so, by the grace of God.
