We do not want to rule over the Arab Palestinians. But we will never go back to the indefensible borders of 1967.
This is policy viewpoint and a promise of Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya’alon.
«The policy of the Netanyahu government is that we don’t want to rule over them [the Palestinians]. But not ruling over them does not mean we have to withdraw to the 1967 borders, which are indefensible borders; or that we have to divide Jerusalem in order to bring Hamas snipers into Jerusalem».
Strategic Affairs Minister Ya’alon told the Jerusalem Post that the state of Israel do not need to remove any settlements.
«If we are talking about coexistence and peace, why the [Palestinian] insistence that the territory they receive be ethnically cleansed of Jews. Why do those areas have to be Judenrein?»
Ya’alon said that if Israel and the Palestinians were truly headed down the path of peace and coexistence, «Jews living in Judea and Samaria under Israeli sovereignty and citizenship» should be possible.
He stressed that «no settlement» should be removed, and that the country’s previous withdrawals – from Lebanon and from Gaza – strengthened Hizbullah and Hamas, respectively. «That is opposed to our strategic interest and to the strategic interests of the West».
He added that the U.S. administration had misdiagnosed the root of the conflict as territorial, when in reality it was about the failure of the Palestinians to recognize the right of the Jews to be here.
«Those who want to continue the Oslo process, who want us to continue to give and give and give, without a Palestinian willingness to recognize our right to a national home, are cooperating with the phased plan for Israel’s destruction», Ya’alon said.

The districts of Judea and Samaria is Jewish land. It is gifted to the Jewish People by God of the Bible. There is no need to return this land to Islamic occupation.
The Arab Palestinians has nothing to offer the state of Israel. They refuse to recognize the state of Israel, they refuse to renounce violence, and they promote a Islamic statehood based on racism and apartheid against the Jewish people.
The so called two-sate-solution is simply a fiction. Because inside the Arab Palestinian camp there are so many fractions and Islamic Jihad organizations that do not agree on anything.
The truth is that if the state of Israel had withdrawn its military forces from the so-called West bank, another Arab Palestinian civil war would have erupted. The best safeguard for a peaceful and prosperous future for this Arab people, seems to be continuing living under Zionist rule and protection. Just like Israel Arabs within the state of Israel.
If the Arab Palestinians can not accept this, the Kingdom of Jordan must open its borders and give them a right to return to the true Palestinian Kingdom established side-by-side the Jewish state. There is more than enough space within Jordan.
