Letter to Editor on 'Hamas Accepts State Within 1967 Borders'

April 04, 2008.

In reference to recent news reports of 'Hamas Accepts State Within 1967 Borders: Meshaal', the grotesque reality on the ground bellies the incongruence of such statements at this time. The only acceptable solution to Israel is 'Eretz Yisrael'. The only viable, fair, and realistic solution is a democratic single-state in Israel-Palestine for all its inhabitants. The only options left the Palestinians (as they perceive it), short of being entirely eliminated from their own ancestral lands, is to ask for whatever little they think they can get, looking as they are into the wrong end of the gun turrets. They will actually get nothing by playing the game Israel sets them up to play in order to continually gain time for more faits accomplis - intellectually, politically, militarily, economically, and strategically outclassed and outgunned that the Palestinians are, living daily under such oppression that the heavens too must lament at its abhorrent creation! To appreciate the sophisticated deceptions and red herrings at play by the Israelis and their exponents to gain incremental faits accomplis in the Land of Canaan which then become 'irreversible' to undo due to its 'impracticality', which in turn is due to the new ongoing reality of Israeli constructions, Jewish settlements, and Palestinian displacements that happen on Palestinian lands, please see this essay 'The endless trail of red herrings' at humanbeingsfirst.org. Under that dismantling of red herrings, these lame assertions by Hamas itself are a red herring. Unless the Palestinians unite in making the only viable demand that can have any political currency today, they are entirely doomed on their own lands.

Ending Apartheid in the Land of Canaan and making an equitable peace in a secular single-state is the only option left these Palestinian 'wretched of the earth'. Let politicians, military tacticians, and other various and sundry hegemons, those occupying them, and those in service of them, and those unable to perceive that they are entirely outclassed intellectually and politically, no longer fool the beleaguered peoples. This is the Zionists' worst fears – the legitimate Palestinian struggle to end the Israeli genocidal conquest and to survive as a free peoples on their own ancestral homelands being astutely recast as a global anti-Apartheid movement against Israel.

Make only one demand – one Israel-Palestine for all its indigenous inhabitants – by ending Apartheid in Israel and creating one common shared secular state. That land is “no ordinary piece of geography”, and two independent states are simply not viable in that tight piece of real estate where almost the entire water of one is under the feet of the other, and all ingress and egress points of one are in the control of the other. Keep making these asinine demands, and loose it all – for that has been the history of Palestine and that remains the Israeli game-plan. Make the only workable demand that can attract the political sympathy of the world as it did for South Africa – end to Apartheid – and the Palestinians may well see the redressing of the injustices done them within their own lifetimes!



Thank you.
