Nieuwste enquete: Palestijnen willen geen vrede en tweestatenoplossing

 

Stel, Israel geeft de gehele Westbank op en ook heel Oost Jeruzalem en zelfs de Klaagmuur en de Tempelberg, allemaal voor de Palestijnen. Zouden zij dan accepteren dat de miljoenen nakomelingen van de vluchtelingen niet naar Israel maar naar de nieuwe Palestijnse staat zullen terugkeren, en daarnaast financiele compensatie krijgen? Het antwoord van zo’n 90% van de Palestijnen daarop is ‘nee’. Dan maar geen vrede, dan maar geen eigen staat, dan maar geen onafhankelijkheid. Alles of niets. En met ‘alles’ bedoel ik letterlijk alles, want met dit zogenaamde ‘recht op terugkeer’ is er geen plaats meer voor Joodse zelfbeschikking. En dus is het steeds niets. Opvallend genoeg meent meer dan de helft dat vrede wanneer hun kinderen groot zijn mogelijk of zelfs waarschijnlijk is. Men verwacht wellicht dat de VN en internationale gemeenschap hun voorwaarden aan Israel gaan opleggen. Helaas werd niet gevraagd hoe die vrede er concreet uit zal zien.

the dissolution of the Palestinian Authority and administering the 
resistance through the Palestinian factions, b) unilateral declaration of a 
Palestinian state and escalation of the resistance, c) keeping the status of
