September nears and the parameters of what the Palestinians will ask for at the United Nations has become more apparent in recent weeks. Apparently they will not only demand that Palestine be established along the 1967 lines, they will also demand that:
1. Israel’s Arabs have a Palestinian identity
2. so-called Palestinian ‘refugees’ have a right to return to Israel (not the new ‘Palestine’)
3. international military forces be positioned in the new ‘Palestine’
4. international countries and bodies get the new Palestinian country off the ground with an outrageous preset sum of money.
And, to anyone who will listen (most recently yesterday), Mahmoud Abbas has been traveling the world saying that the Palestinians will never recognize Israel as a Jewish country and never consent to Jewish communities existing in the new ‘Palestine’.
None of this is really new except for the remarkable idea that Israeli Arabs (who constitute approximately 25% of the population of Israel) will be Palestinians. It also suggests that the places where they live should also be part of ‘Palestine’.
As the September date in the United Nations approaches look for further details of the Palestinian resolution to emerge. Do not be surprised about anything–the Palestinians will ask for the moon–and implicitly, the destruction of Israel.
Most of the world’s countries will support them. Will yours?
