|Program Link: Tony Blair Steps Down as Quartet Middle East Envoy but No One Cares|
Excerpt from this day’s program:
…And I say the Two-State Solution is as much of a phantom as the phantom Palestinian Nation. It is totally not of this world.
What does a Two-Stater like Dennis Ross have in mind when he speaks this way? I assume he imagines a new, independent Arab state in Judea and Samaria absent any Israeli presence. He imagines a “Palestinian” state on the western slopes of the hills of Samaria and Judea looking down into the coastal plain, into Tel-Aviv and Ben Gurion Airport.
On this slope in Judea on winter mornings when the air is at its clearest in the year, with the sun rising in the east, one can see the chimney of the Reading power station on the beach north of Tel-Aviv all the way south past Holon and Bat Yam, the Ashdod, Ashqelon and the power station at the northern end of the Gaza Strip.
The Two-State Solution, one assumes, envision this territory, at an elevation of over 2000 feet above sea level, handed over to the Arabs, who we know in their majority are devotees of the Muslim Brotherhood, locally known as HAMAS.
And I ask of Dennis Ross and all the Two-Staters, “You gotta be kidding? Which Israeli government is going to agree to drive all the Jews from their homes and turn the real estate over to the Arabs?”
