"Logic" versus "Two State Solution"

There's an interesting headline on the Israel page of Reuters:

Israel says not convinced by 'logic' of French peace initiative
Israel said it was struggling to "understand the logic" of a French peace initiative favored by the Palestinians after Israeli foreign ministry officials met with a French envoy in Jerusalem on Monday.
France is lobbying for an international peace conference before May that would outline incentives and give guarantees for Israelis and Palestinians to resume face-to-face talks before August and try to end a decades-long conflict... (Reuters)


Now, I'd take that a bit further than Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has taken it. I don't see any logic in Bibi's pro-Palestinian sic state policy. No matter how you slice it, no matter what minimal conditions you may demand before the "approval" of such astate, I don't see any logic in it.

I think it's important to go back a lot further than November 29, 1947, when the United Nations approved the establishment of the State of Israel to get to the root of the "conflict," sic. A little history may help.

  • There have always been Jews living in the Land of Israel, even during the "exile."
  • There have always been attacks on Jews by Arabs and others, such as the Crusaders, over the millennia since the end of the Jewish Kingdoms. 
  • With the rise of various European nationalisms, the idea of a Jewish nationalism aka Zionism began, and Jews who returned to the Land of Israel were attacked.
  • When the League of Nations entrusted Great Britain with the Palestinian Mandate to establish a Jewish State, GB sabotaged it by limiting Jewish immigration and supporting the Arabs who attacked Jews.
  • After the fledgling United Nations approved the establishment of a Jewish State, Britain continued its sabotage of it and its support of the Arabs. 
  • Miraculously, the State of Israel defeated the combined Arab forces in its War of Independence, 1948. 


Have you noticed that all of this, yes, all these attacks on Jews happened well before the 1967 Six Days War? The so-called  "conflict" has nothing to do with Israel's liberation of Judea, Samaria, Gaza, Golan and the Jordan Valley. Placating Arab terrorists with land and the trappings of a state won't stop them from attacking Jews. There's no logic in expecting thousands of years of Arab terror against Jews to end by inventing a "State of Palestine." That is especially when those ruling today's PA- Palestinian Authority have made it very clear that their aim is to wipe out Israel, replace it. Peace with Israel is not on their menu.
