I know there's been loads and LOADS of news about Israeli policy on here in the past few weeks. And that you all may be sick of it. But they just
keep bringing the stories.
When the British decided to use the Balfour Declaration as the basis of their mandate in Palestine they assumed they could control the situation. That
they could create a nice friendly buffer Jewish state as part of the British Empire to protect its links between N Africa and India.
However they could not control the Zionists. Becasue at heart they are extremists. Their whole ideologoy is based upon extremism. Chaim Weizmann the
head of the Zionist Executive during this time and a supposed moderate stated ' I want to make Palestine as Jewish as France is French and England is
English'. They never had any intention of sharing the land with the Arabs.
It is almost exaclty the same today. The U.S cannot control Israel just becasue it is the bigger and nominally more powerful nation. Israel does not
pursue these settlements to annoy or antagonise the American's, it is just a policy of Zionists that has been in practice near on 90 years.
The Obama and future administrations have to understand that their is no reasoning with the Israelis on settlement expansion in E Jerusalem and the W
Bank. It is their policy to eventually force all Palestinians out of the area. As Weizmann coined it, it is the 'Gradualist' approach.
The U.S are literally going to have to force a solution on Israel through U.N pressure and the real threat of withdrawl of military and more
importantly diplomatic aid.
How can Obama possibly paper over the cracks? I know, he'll find a way.
