While the results have not been made official, it looks like Bibi will form the next (coalition) Government and the world will see if he really meant, "No Palestinian State." What he said exactly was:
There will be no Palestinian state. Former Vice President Joe Biden told me at the time that given all the conditions I have - regarding maintaining security in our hands, maintaining the settlements and not dividing Jerusalem - there can be no Palestinian state. I said to him, “That is correct”. These are my positions. These are the three principles that I will not give up on. I told Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt the same.He also said:
They will run their own lives. We have no interest in running Nablus. There will be no Palestinian state,” he said, “not like the one people are talking about. It won’t happen
So, Palestinians will get something, just not what they are expecting and that something will not include giving up security, Jerusalem or dismantling settlements. Pretty clear. Also pretty clear that Palestinians (and their supporters worldwide) will blow a major gasket.
Election talk or reality? Only time will tell. And of course, there is Trump's deal of the century which may or may not conflict with Bibi's position.
The usual suspects are blubbering about how Palestinians don't have voting rights. What a load. They have voting rights whenever THEIR elected officials hold an election. How long has Abbas been in now? The usual suspects never blubber about THAT. Are they brain dead or what?ReplyDelete
“In Jordan, out of more than three million Palestinians, almost 2.2 million are registered as refugees, although the vast majority have full Jordanian citizenship.ReplyDelete
In Lebanon, nearly all Palestinians (approximately 500,000) are considered refugees and denied citizenship, and the same is true in Syria with almost 530,000 registered as refugees.
In all three, the vast majority of Palestinian refugees were in fact born in those countries."

“…until 1964, when Yassir Arafat created the PLO [Palestinian Liberation Organization], “Palestinian” was used as a reference to Jews.
The 1938 flag of Palestine was a gold Magen David [Jewish star] superimposed upon equal-sized blue and white panels.
Palestine was also the place Arabs began to boycott in 1945.”
The Nation-State Law is Not the Problem

"US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday refused to reaffirm American support for a Palestinian state after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged to extend Israeli sovereignty over West Bank settlements.
Testifying before a Senate subcommittee just as Israel wrapped up tight elections, Pompeo declined to respond when Democrats asked him to back a two-state solution.
“Ultimately, the Israelis and Palestinians will decide how to resolve this,” Pompeo replied."
