Professor Eldad: 'There is a Third Way'
Former MK and director of Professors for a Strong Israel (PFSI) spoke with Arutz Sheva on Sunday to explain his vision for an alternative to a "Two State Solution" which would see a Palestinian Arab State established in Judea and Samaria.
Professor Eldad was speaking at a PSFI-organized conference entitled "Two States for Two Peoples, on Two Sides of the Jordan River."
The aim of the conference, he said, was to show the Israeli public and decision-makers that there is a "third way" in the choice between a "bi-national state" and a Palestinian State in Judea and Samaria.
Echoing the words of Jordanian-Palestinian Mudar Zahran at the same conference, Eldad claimed that the establishment of a Palestinian state east of the River Jordan was inevitable once the "Arab Spring" reached Jordan.
Eldad also predicted that negotiations between Israel and the PA would not succeed in bringing a final peace deal. Instead, he warned that PM Netanyahu would "at best" implement a unilateral plan to uproot half of the Jews of Judea and Samaria, along the lines of Israel's disastrous 2005 withdrawal from Gaza. Such a plan would not bring peace, but more bloodshed, he warned.
