The politicians talk about a “2-state” solution for Israel.
The media frames Israel as evil unless it adopts a “2-state” solution.
Trouble is, a “2-state” solution for the Israeli-Palestinian problem just won’t work.
Israel cannot morally allow a Palestinian state within its borders that:
- Preaches hating Jews.
- Preaches death to Jews.
- And pays terrorists and killers millions of dollars that could go to bettering the lives of Palestinians.
In 2017, of the $693 million that the Palestinian Authority receives as foreign aid, $345 million – roughly half — was paid out as stipends to convicted terrorists and their families. That includes suicide bombers and anyone who attacks Israelis.
The agencies that disburse the funds employ over 500 bureaucrats.
The terrorist group Hamas operates a separate Martyrs Fund.
These payments are sacred in Palestinian politics.
Netanyahu calls the payments “an incentive for murder.”
Currently, the U.S. is considering passing the Taylor Force Act, which would stop hundreds of millions of dollars in aid payments to the PA until stipends to the families of terrorists is ended.
It has passed the Senate Foreign Relations committee with bipartisan support, and is expected to be adopted by the full Senate.
Even if it wanted to stop rewarding terrorism, the PA claims if it did, Hamas would step in to make payments and gain power in the West Bank.
However, PA President Mahmoud Abbas has said, “I don’t intend to cease payment for families of prisoner martyrs, even if it costs me my seat. I will continue to pay them until my last day.”
Either way, you can see why a 2-state solution is just a dream, no matter how many of the world’s countries clamor for it.
Do you believe the Palestinian Authority desires peace with Israel?
I will believe it when the PA begins teaching children love and peace, and not hate, killing and martyrdom.
