Will the PA renounce the two-state solution strategy and opt for equal rights in a unitary bi-national state?



The two-state solution has been the sacred cow of the Arab-Israeli peace process for the past 40 years. The effectively moribund Palestinian Authority  (PA) continues, knowingly or otherwise, to count on the US, to eventually force intransigent Israel to end its 55-year-old military occupation of the Occupied territories.

PA efforts to that effect are drawing ridicule from most Palestinians and apathy from Israel.

But counting on the US in no way implies that the PA has any genuine hopes that the US would manage to extract real concessions from Israel’s parsimonious hands. It only means that the fragile entity has no choice, other than placing all its eggs in the American basket.

Indeed, many observers view the PA current posture as merely regurgitating the same failed old-Oslo era policies which proved to be disastrous for the Palestinian cause.

Meanwhile, the impoverished  PLO-PA Fatah leadership continues to lament the nearly total paralysis  of international legitimacy and rule of international law, which allowed an insolent Israel to gang up on the Palestinians with much of the world, including the Arab-Muslim world,  looking on.

 Indeed. the almost total disregard by Israel of international law in the occupied territories, including the sweeping seizure of Palestinian lands, aggrandizement of Jewish-only colonies, along with the quasi-daily murder and maiming of mostly innocent Palestinians, have made the demoralized PA leadership more frustrated and disillusioned than ever.

A few months ago, a nervous-looking Abbas publicly lashed out at the Chinese Communist Party, using a four-letter word, when senior Fatah figure Abbas Zaki asked the president whether it was appropriate to congratulate the party on its foundation anniversary.

What would Abbas tell Biden?

Most Palestinians don’t pin any hope whatsoever on Biden’s upcoming visit to Ramallah.

“We have no illusions that the visit will achieve a political breakthrough. We will be listening to more pledges and promises,” an unnamed  senior Palestinian official was quoted as saying by the pro-Netanyahu i42 news on 2 July .”This visit is about normalizing ties between Israel and Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia.”

Biden is due to meet with Abbas in mid-July. The main purpose of the mostly symbolic visit to the West Bank is to demonstrate to the Palestinians that the US is not forgetting or ignoring them. This might be true to some extent.

 But the Biden administration is ignoring or at least sidestepping the Palestinian cause, while frantically accelerating efforts to get the Saudis to normalize relations with Israel.

 The US is unlikely though to take pro-active steps to reopen its consulate in East Jerusalem, closed by former Israel-firster, President Trump, despite some loosely-worded promises made by Secretary of State Blinken that it would.

As to the week, ailing and increasingly-abandoned Abbas, he is absolutely in no position to make demands of or issue warnings to a US president who is thoroughly plagued  and preoccupied by the nightmarish and still ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine.

True,  as a solace to comfort Abbas and enable him to keep face and retain his political composure, Biden may give the PA leader some verbal assurances, but nothing more.

The legitimate Palestinian grievances Abbas will communicate to Biden are no news for the US president that would prompt him  to even nudge a notoriously recalcitrant Israel, where a  care-taker government is bracing for yet a new round of elections following the collapse of the Naftali Bennet’s cacophonic coalition two weeks ago.

Interestingly, the elections, Slated to take place four months from now, will be a fierce competition between the likud, the jingoistic nationalist bloc, and the extreme-national-religious right.  Both camps vehemently reject the Oslo process, the erstwhile two-state solution proposal as well as the establishment of any completely-sovereign  Palestinian political entity west of the river Jordan.

Will Netanyahu make a comeback?

Hence, awaiting the elections is really a non-viable option for Abbas and Biden, who may be affronted with the political comeback of Trump’s prodigal son, Benyamin Netanyahu. Last week, Trump reportedly said he would back Netanyahu in the coming Israeli elections.

While Bennet treated Abbas with a combination of non-attention and even not a small modicum of contempt, Netanyahu is known for employing a lot of coaxing, cajoling and red-herring tactics with the aging PA leader, while working diligently, often behind the scenes,  to dismantle the very last vestiges of official  Arab support for the Palestinians.

Netanyahu is also the number-1 ally of Saudi Arabia’s de facto king MBS, who is reportedly impatiently awaiting his old father’s death to open up Saudi Arabia to Israel and bid a final “Good by” to the Palestinians and their “annoying cause.”

Now, as we all know, Biden is trying to do the job for MBS and Netanyahu even before King Salman’s death, a mission he may or may not succeed in accomplishing.

 Biden’s effort to consummate what would be a historical breakthrough in the relations between Saudi Arabia and Israel doesn’t mean at all that Israel would offer any meaningful concessions to the Palestinians in return, or even relax her tight and harsh grip on them. In fact,  the opposite might happen, which wouldn’t even make MBS bat an eyelash, given his disenchantment with and even aversion to the Palestinians.

One-state Solution

A few weeks ago, Abbas warned that if the international community, particularly the US and EU, didn’t move to compel Israel to end its occupation and colonization of the West Bank, he would take “decisive and dangerous” decisions.

Abbas didn’t disclose what these decisions would be.  But some of his aides speculated that the aging and ailing PA leader might freeze at least some Palestinian commitments under the Oslo Accords such as the security coordination regime with Israel. Moreover, Abbas may well decide to revoke PLO recognition of Israel, which was unconditional and not contingent on reciprocal Israeli recognition of a Palestinian state.

But the most important decision Abbas might possibly take is the renouncement by the PLO of the two-state solution strategy in favor of one unitary state from the River Jordan to the Mediterranean,  where Jews and Arabs would live together in peace and equality.

This would mean that the Palestinians would start a fresh struggle for equal rights in a democratic, non-apartheid state.

But a bi-national democratic state, while it would be widely welcomed by the bulk of the international community, would be anathema for Israel and many Zionist Jews.

A few weeks ago, former Middle East envoy Dennis Ross warned that the destruction by Israel of the two-state solution would eventually force the Palestinian leadership to opt for a unitary, democratic state where Palestinians and Israeli Jews live as equal citizens.

The idea of a bi-national Jewish-Arab state west of the River Jordan will not be readily accepted by a sizeable determined segment of Palestinians as well, particularly Hamas and other religious groups. However, it is the only truly viable solution under existing circumstances.  The other alternative is perpetual, open-ended conflict between the Islamic world on the one hand and Israel and its guardian-ally, the US, on the other,  which could eventually evolve into a nuclear Armageddon. With the two-state solution reaching real dead-end, the only alternative would be the continuation and escalation of the conflict. The Palestinian Authority is unlikely to survive the recalcitrance of the upcoming Israeli government, especially if the recently-approved settlement projects are implemented.

To the peoples of the world: Israel is Carrying out a holocaust against Palestinian families



Israel is carrying out a holocaust against Palestinian families.

Yes, Israel is not sending Palestinians to gas chambers. But Israel is bringing Auschwitz and Mauthhausen to Palestinian homes, neighborhood, hospitals and mosques.

The title of this brief article is not a hyperbole or a dramatic overstatement meant to attract attention or gain sympathy. It is rather a reflection of reality.

Indeed, if a holocaust is about annihilating people, especially civilians and Palestinian families, the Israeli army, the Wehrmacht of our time, has been exterminating entire Palestinian families-the father, the mother and all the children.

We are not speaking about one isolated incident or a few incidents where one stray missile hit a home inadvertently or children killed as a result of collateral damage.

We are rather talking about carrying out a real holocaust against Palestinian families, an official policy endorsed and pursued by the government of Israel to wipe out numerous Palestinian households for the purpose of bringing the Palestinians to their knees.

This is Israel’s way of wreaking shock and awe on the defenseless and helpless Palestinians.

So far, more than 25 thousand entire Gaza households have been targeted by Israeli bombing. More than 12 thousands have been killed half of them are children and women.

Just imagine your own family being annihilated by a missile launched from high altitude. This nightmare has effectively become a routine experience in Gaza.

Israel today is emulating the Nazis and other criminal offenders throughout history. Don’t invoke the mantra of anti-Semitism. In the final analysis, when Jews think, behave and act like the Nazis thought, behaved and acted, they (the Jews) become Nazis themselves, pure and simple.

Yes, I do recognize there are many kind-hearted Jews who reject this Nazi-like savagery. None the less, we must call the spade a spade. These atrocities are being enthusiastically supported by the vast majority of Israelis, including ordinary people, intellectuals and rabbis. Israel-2023 does have much in common with Nazi-Germany. Claiming otherwise would be both dishonest and malicious.

Real holocaust

Israel, a notorious professional liar whose agents control western media outlets from Sydney to California, is misleading the international community as to what is really happening in the Gaza Strip.

A regional military superpower thanks to unrestricted American backing and support, Israel is simply waging a war of extermination against a thoroughly persecuted people whose only “crime” is its enduring vigor and longing for freedom from the shackles of Talmudic Jewish Nazism, a Satanic ideology which views all humanity-save Jews-as animals whose lives have absolutely no sanctity.

There is no doubt that the ongoing Israeli rampage of murder and terror is an expression of that genocidal Talmudic mentality. It is a mindset that is even more nefarious than the Nazi ideology.

We Palestinians have been at the receiving end of Jewish criminality and murderousness for several decades. We know it too well and need no one to give us lectures on “Israel’s civility and humanity”

In the final analysis, a country that murders thousands of children and other innocent civilians rather knowingly and deliberately in order to create deterrence is neither civilized nor humane. It is tantamount to fornicating with truth to call Israel humane and civilized.

The truth of the matter is that Israel is a diabolical Judeo-Nazi entity that has much in common with the Third Rich.

Yes, Israel is not sending Palestinians to gas chambers. But Israel is bringing Auschwitz to Palestinian homes, neighborhoods and streets. Israel is carrying out a real holocaust against innocent Palestinian families.

This is not really a war. War is fought between armies. The Palestinians don’t have an army, or navy or air force. The Palestinians simply can not protect their own children from overwhelming barbarianism, played out in full view of the entire world.

Yes, there have been projectiles fired on Jewish colonies from the Gaza Strip, but these projectiles are essentially innocuous from the military view point as evident from the nearly zero casualties incurred by Israelis.

Indeed, when there is one dead on one side and 300 on the other side, including 50 children and babies, in addition thousands of maimed civilians and swathes of pornographic destruction of property, we are not really talking about war, even an asymmetrical war. We are actually talking about a real massacre, a massacre that is reminiscent of the time when the Nazis ganged up on European Jewry 70 years ago.

This very real massacre, holocaust, wouldn’t have been carried out had it not been for the flaccidity and leniency and silence displayed in Israel’s face by the bulk of the international community.

This is not to mention the connivance, collusion and conspiratorial roles played by several criminal states and governments, including the United States, a majority of European governments and especially the whore-like Sissi regime in Cairo which is shamelessly and brazenly siding with Israel against the Palestinian people.

But never mind, another massacre, another blitzkrieg, another conspiracy won’t finish our people off. It is our kismet that we must die in order to survive.

But those in Washington and London and Cairo who are watching rather passively, probably gleefully, as our children are being incinerated and murdered at the hands of the children, grand children and great-grand children of the holocaust, will one day pay the price for their murderous complicity and ignominy.

We will not forgive or forget.

Israel: A criminal state par excellance



Israel: a criminal state par excellance

In its exaggerated self-infatuation and excessive narcissism, Israel, a criminal state par excellence, often claims it is light upon mankind.

Zionist Jews, who falsely claim allegiance to the prophetic traditions of ancient Israel, are actually mostly atheists.

In fact, Zionism has more in common with the most infamous paragons of evil throughout history than with such Hebrew luminaries as the Prophet Moses, Aaron, Jacob, Joseph, David, and Solomon.

Indeed, ever since its misbegotten birth in 1948, a birth fraught with crimes against humanity, Israel’s modus operandi has been an uninterrupted series of atrocities, oppression, persecution, inequity, and racism.

Thus, Israel, A criminal state par excellence, is also a great falsifier of truth, history by claiming a higher moral ground vis-à-vis the Palestinians, its largely-unwept victims who are still crying to the seventh heaven for justice.

Israel is already starving and tormenting 1.6 million Gazans, denying them food, clean water, and other necessities of life. The 17-year draconian siege is apparently meant to punish Gazans for electing Hamas which simply refuses to recognize Israel for religious and moral reasons. The international community  sought to overlook Israel’s  real crimes against humanity inflicted repeatedly  on  some two million helpless Palestinians languishing under a N-a-z-i-like siege imposed and maintained by Israel.

Israel portrays herself as a beacon of light in a sea of dictatorship, tyranny, and oppression,

What Israel, a criminal state par Excellance, refuses to tell the world, however, is the fact that the Jewish state through its ubiquitous tentacles in America, Europe and elsewhere to enable, shield, sustain, and support tyrannical regimes in the region such as the Sissi police state in Egypt, the feudal regimes in Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahrain.

Israel, a notorious professional liar whose agents control western media outlets from Sydney to California, is misleading the international community as to what is really happening in Jerusalem and in the Gaza Strip.

Israel, ruled by supremacist and megalomaniac Jews who think that no country or entity under the sun has a right to criticize Israel’s appalling maltreatment of the Palestinians, believes it has an unending free season on its victims.

Those are the Nazi-minded ideologues who are indoctrinated in Talmudic Jewish supremacy and who believe that the non-Jews lives have no sanctity , those are the Talmudic thugs who believe that the Palestinians must either be expelled or massacred .

As to its victims, Israel seeks always to demonize and dehumanize them so that the world will react indifferently if not callously when Israel murders them, expels them from their homes, steals their land and property as well as demolish their homes, a nearly daily callous practice the state of the Jews carries out in the West Bank.

Israel was born in sin. It will always be a sinful state, no matter what we read in the New York Times and the Washington Post or what we see on CNN and Fox News.

World passively watching as Israel perpetrates open-ended massacre in Gaza



The Israeli army, which can be called the Jewish Wehrmacht given its Nazi-like behavior, continues to pound the Gaza Strip from ground, sea and air. According to sources in Gaza, virtually all targets hit so far are civilians.

As many as 3500 Palestinians, virtually all of them civilians, have been reported killed so far. Thousands others were injured, many sustaining life-threatening wounds.

The scenes of mutilated and maimed children, some of whose bodies are seen protruding through the rubble of their homes, destroyed by missiles fired by American-supplied F-16 fighter jets, seem to verify the view that Israel is targeting Palestinian civilians in Gaza knowingly and deliberately.

Israeli leaders and military officials are openly gloating over the high death toll among Palestinian civilians. They blame Hamas for the orgy of killing. However, virtually all Palestinians don’t buy the Israeli logice.

As we all know, this is not the first time Israel indulges in such war crimes.

Israel has always been a regular perpetrator of war crimes . Indeed, one would exaggerate very little by arguing that Israel itself is a war crime or a crime against humanity.

I am not going to spend time refuting Israeli hasbara lies, blaming Hamas for the latest conflagration. Having been a vigilant observer of Israeli behavior for several decade , I can honestly argue that honesty and Israel can not really be used in the same sentence. Israel and honesty are an eternal oxymoron.

As always, Israel violated the uneasy truce reached through Egyptian mediation in 2002. Israeli leaders, proceeding from the Talmudic ideology which views all non-Jews as lesser human beings or virtual animals, don’t feel bound by agreements or treaties reached with “Goyem.

People in the west, long duped and brainwashed by Zionist propaganda, may raise they eyebrows when reading these words. But we who live with these Judeo-Nazis and have been at the receiving end of their murderousness and evilness know better.

We don’t need and won’t accept lectures about the “humanity and civility” of the N-a-z-i-s of our time.

Hamas and other Palestinian resistance groups in Gaza don’t constitute an existential threat to Israel, which has one of the strongest military machines in the world.

Read Also: Hamas: A convenient red herring for Jewish Nazism

In fact, the claim that Gaza is threatening Israel is infinitely ridiculous. The thoroughly-starved and hermetically blockaded Gazans have a hard time feeding their children, let alone pose any meaningful threat to the N-a-z-i Germany of our time, a pugnacious state that more or less tightly controls the most powerful country under the sun, the United States.

It is sad and lamentable that a country of 320 million has allowed itself to be enslaved by Zionist pressure groups, hell-bent on prostituting America and eviscerating it of any semblance of morality for Israel’s sake.

Palestinians have resist Jewish terror

But the Palestinians can not take their very survival for granted. They can’t rely on the so-called international community to shield them against Jewish N-a-z-i-s-m.

Indeed, if the Palestinians don’t defend themselves, who is going to defend them? Obama? Merkel? Or Puten?

Hence, the valiant Palestinian determination to put up a semblance of resistance to the Jewish Wehrmacht. The Israeli assault on Gaza is not an assault on Hamas; It is rather a nefarious aggression against the entire Palestinian people. It is intended to break our people’s will to resist Israeli Nazism. Pure and simple.

To put the matter in a nutshell, the Palestinians in Gaza are simply defending themselves against an overwhelming evil force that is hell bent on ethnically cleansing them and stealing their motherland. Our fighters don’t fire their home-made missiles on Israel because they want to spill Jewish blood. They do it because this is the only means they possess to deter a cannibalistic enemy that can only feel good if and when it spills Palestinian blood.

Besides, the problem with Israel didn’t begin last week or last year.

Just remember that many of the people being now bombarded and murdered by the Jewish Wehrmacht are actually children, grand children and great grand children of the original Palestinian refugees that Israel massacred or brutally expelled out of their homes when the evil state was created in Palestine in 1948.

Hence, the Palestinians in Gaza can not really be terrorists if only because they were never the initiator of violence and terror. The Palestinians were living peaceably in their towns and villages, mostly leading a simple pastoral life until waves of Khazari Jews, who had no real connection with the ancient Israelites, invaded Palestine with the aid of Western countries, especially the evil empire, the United Kingdome.

Yes, it was Britain that put the venomous Jewish snake in the bed of the Palestinian child. Britain, as Noam Chomsky wisely said, can not claim innocence or argue that it didn’t know the snake was so poisonous.

Gaza Massacre: Surviving by dying

Today, Palestinians are sacrificing their lives for their freedom, dignity and survival. This is what they have always been doing from time immemorial. We are very much children of martyrs who were themselves children of martyrs. We survived despite a harsh history of plots and conspiracies that aimed to eradicate us as a people from the face of earth.

We in Gaza will survive the latest Israeli blitz as well

However, the world community ought to feel ashamed for watching the Nazi Germany of our time gang up on a defenseless people in Gaza whose only crime is that it is not part of “the holy tribe,”

This conspicuously immoral world , which doesn’t respect any modicum of respect, will surely have a precarious future. It will face ultimate demise.
