Is Israel-Palestine conflict resolution possible?

By Dr. Abdul Ruff

With a view to isolating Hamas from Fatah and world at large and kill as many Palestinians as possible, the CIA-Mossad gangs have successfully converted the Israeli-Palestinian conflict into the Israel-Hamas war. As the root causes of the animosity between the two parties have not been addressed and unless the broader Israeli-Palestinian conflict must be resolved, future flare ups are likely to reoccur.

Having imposed in Mideast by dictatorial USA-UK terror twins, Israel, like US led NATO, doesn’t want to end terror war on Palestinians and other Arabs. However, this does not mean that conflict resolution is beyond reach even though many actors have grown frustrated and fatigued by the stalemate. This state of affairs is untenable.

The release of Israeli spy soldier Gilad Shalit by Hamas led Palestine government last year underscored that cooperation between the seemingly bitter enemies was possible. World though Israel would now feel safe and trust the Hamas Palestinians and forge cooperation, but, alas, that is not to be because Israel somehow wanted that spy to show to Jewish illegal settler voters that Israeli regime is too concerned about life of Jews.

Fact of the matter is that Israel doesn’t seek any peace or friendship with Palestinians whose lands it has stolen. The escalation of attacks between the GOI and Palestinians, especially Hamas has occurred many times. The most significant was in 2008-2009 when Israel carried out airstrikes and a ground incursion into Gaza known as Operation Cast Lead. The exchange of Zionist aerial bombardments and reply rocket fire from Palestine-Hamas that claimed the lives of over a hundred people, inflicted numerous casualties and caused massive damage to infrastructure, finally came to a halt on 22 November 2012.

The devastation and loss of lives as well as the lessons from these and other encounters should have served to deter or at least compel decision-makers on both sides to refrain from pursuing the path of violence. But Israel wants this terror status quo to continue so as to extract political capital from the conflict for domestic poll reasons and to gain more military aid from USA and Europe. Besides, the war is used by Israel to showcase its latest terror goods for third word customers.

As such, Israel does not seek a resolution of the broader Israeli-Palestinian conflict and simply wants to provoke and “maintain” the conflict at a manageable level. If Kadima PM Olmert had attacked Gaza strip on the poll eve for making poll fortunes, Netanyahu government’s bid for re-election is a major factor that has driven the GOI to confront Hamas at this time. In attacking Palestinian government and groups in Gaza, Netanyahu in fact miscalculated that his credibility among the electorate would rise, boosting his bid for re-election. Netanyahu may actually suffer political losses rather than make political gains from the confrontation. It is for this reason that Netanyahu has been actively trying unsuccessfully, to sell the ceasefire as a victory against Hamas.

Unlike the terror wars launched by NATO terror syndicate have been non-stop and protracted almost endlessly, the Israeli war with Hamas Palestinians are planned for short period and not to be protracted; it must be decisive, in that the capabilities of Hamas, its armed wing and other militant groups must be completely neutralised, and no all Palestinians must be killed. True, many Mossad-CIA buts might say Israeli forces would be able to focus on Iran and Hezbollah by incapacitating Hamas. But Israeli strategy is not to end Palestinians on earth in one go or quickly enough, because it needs them as a threat stuff essentially for ensuring more aid from west. Moreover, Israel would then face extinction which worries the Jews.

Israeli air strikes have hardened the positions of many Israelis and Palestinians on making peace with Israeli terrorist regime. Hamas can now use of Iranian-made Fajr-5 rockets that can target Tel Aviv and Jerusalem but they refused to employ them.

Until the unity government takes charge, the Hamas government still needs to work towards permanently ending Israel’s blockade of Gaza, ensuring that all border crossings are open, improving the economic and social situation in the enclave and realising Palestinian nationalist aspirations for an independent state.

The Hamas government should show restrain and responsibility, unlike Israeli terrorist gangs. The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) should be strengthened and reformed to protect the lives of Palestinians and not to get provoked by Israeli wicked machinations. Palestinian fatalities and casualties from the airstrikes meant that Hamas could not refrain from entering the fray lest its credibility be adversely affected; hence, it too, began firing rockets at Israel. In addition, following Israel’s assassination of the commander of Hamas’ military wing, Ahmed Jabari, the movement’s ability to restrain its armed wing as well as the other Palestinian factions became difficult.

Now that Palestine has won observer state status at the UN, Palestinian factions must quickly forge a credible alliance and forge a unity government to safeguard the gained status after a long battle with Zionist criminals.

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has become an international problem because it fuels the ideology of global state terrorism (GST) and global anti-Islam infrastructure (GAI) that have affected many countries around the world. Hence, it is time for the international community to play a more active and perhaps a more assertive role to resolve this conflict.

  1. I agree with some of your points here and disagree with others. For example, the international community created the modern states as they exist today and used Arabs and Jews for their own purposes (as colonial powers have done around the world), promising us both what they really had little if any intention of delivering. I think perhaps the same thing is true today. I ask for less international intervention (each nation has its own interest and agenda that may not coincide with ours) and more trust-building measures on both sides. We have both made mistakes and it's time to acknowledge them - both of us. Calling us criminals is not going to achieve anything except deepening mistrust.
    I am happy for the upgraded Palestinian status at the UN and I pray for the declaration of a Palestinian State.

  2. I have an extensive blog on the topic and I'm involved
