Why Israel’s government and people should be totally against the formation of a Palestinian state in the land G-d promised to them for eternity – the Land of Israel:
I. It will not lead to peace, but to the destruction of what would be left of Israel.
II. It will not solve Israel’s democratic problem, and so will not preserve the Jewish character of what will be left of Israel.
- Israel should in no way fear that a demographic dilemma will arise out of keeping all Samaria and Judea, but should vigorously confront any such danger by adopting the following measures: a) Make bringing Jews home from all over the world a governmental top priority; an upgraded Ministry of Immigration fielding the best candidates to clarify abroad the need to make aliyah. b) Stimulate natural population growth by providing financial assistance to large families. Make an overall effort to counsel against the evil of abortion, that the tens of thousands of Jewish children being aborted every year will live – to be adopted if need be by Israeli families who would love to have children of their own.
- End all distinction or differentiation between those desirous of being loyal citizens of theJewish State of Israel: Impose on all the same obligations, and give all the same rights. This includes the obligation to serve in the Israel Defense Forces. Such a move may cause a voluntary exodus of many of the Muslim Arabs now living in Israel with Israeli passports, for a great number would in all likelihood refuse to serve in “the Jewish Army” to defend a state which, in their heart of hearts, they wish to see become a Muslim-controlled Palestinian state. Their departure will free Israel of those who would use their citizenship to undermine the very state they are part of.
- As Ambassador Yoram Ettinger and others – like Paul Morland of Birkbeek College, University of London – have amply documented, there is in the foreseeable future no, I repeat no demographic danger posed to Israel holding on to all of Judea and Samaria.

III. With the upcoming free elections in the so-called West Bank, the majority of the Palestinians may in all likelihood – as they did in Gaza – all choose for a leader closer to Hamas than Fatah, thus destroying any hope of peace or, if already concluded with the old leadership under Abu Mazen, totally jeopardize that achievement.
IV. Israel does not need to continually blame itself for not doing enough to find peace with the Palestinian Authority and people. Both prime ministers Ehud Barak and Ehud Olmert offered Yasser Arafat and …read more
