An illuminating debate between Minister Tzipi Hotovely of Likud and Secretary General of the Labor Party and Deputy Speaker of Knesset Yechiel "Hilik" Bar
This is a very clear and comprehensive description and explanation of the two positions.
Four previous efforts failed because territory is not the issue says Hotovely – Times and attitudes have changed says Bar.
No land give-away says Hotovelly - Two million Arabs cannot be absorbed says Bar.
Economic advantages in Israel for Arabs will keep the peace says Hotovely – Hate and mistrust is too deeply seated to be overcome says Bar
These are just some of the well reasoned differences of opinion that will inform your understanding of the Palestinian Arab - Israeli conflict that dates back not to 1967 or even the establishment of the Jewish State in 1948, but to the British Mandate times.
Now it’s up to you the listeners to make up your mind on what is best for a lasting peace and ask yourselves if in light of previous attempts the Palestinian Arabs would be satisfied with a demilitarized State in Judea and Samaria in which the security of the skies is controlled by Israel and where the high ground in the East overlooking the Jordan valley remains in Israel’s hands – or if Israel’s future is better secured by remaining one State between the Mediterranean Sea and the river Jordan with as Hotovely argues, giving the Palestinian Arab population full citizenship rights.
There are of course other alternatives , among them one Israeli State as per Hotovely‘s view, but with localized Palestinian administrative areas – or just keep the status quo, hoping that the Palestinian Authority will eventually realize the futility of their aspirations to replace the Jewish State.
