US President Barack Obama’s speech to the United Nations on Tuesday, in which he declared that Israel cannot continue to exist as a secure, democratic state without “the realization of a Palestinian state,” is the result of Israeli leaders’ own speeches.
Until former PM Yitzchak Rabin and PMinister Netanyahu, all Israeli leaders repeatedly stated the historic truth: there is no ‘Palestinian’ nation, no ‘Palestinian’ history and no ‘Palestinian’ national aspirations.
There is an Arab nation that aspires to destroy Israel, and the ‘Palestinian’ invention is the main way to do that. World leaders always understood that fact. However, Israeli leaders’ change in heart eventually led Western views to change, as well.
Once Israel recognized ‘the Palestinian nation and its rights,’ it began a worldwide process of loss of legitimacy for the existence of a Jewish state.Either Israel is our land, or theirs. When we recognized another nation’s rights to our land – we lost our own rights.
Moshe Feiglin: Obama is wrong in saying that the creation of an Arab state in Judea and Samaria will guarantee Israel’s security. A Palestinian state is not a guarantee of Israel’s security; it is a recipe for Israel’s destruction.
