A New Year and a New Solution

L’chaim! To your Health and Happiness!


It seems the time has arrived to stop pushing a defunct, dysfunctional, dated solution to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Arabs who live in Judea, Samaria, and the eastern part of Jerusalem – Arabs who once were citizens of Jordan, only to be disenfranchised by King Hussein in 1983, so as to become a political football to be used against Israel. 

Everyone who can read a map can see that Israel is but a sliver of land, and no more than 15 km (9.3 miles) wide at its center.  No one who cares should expect it can survive as a country, let alone as a Jewish state, if it surrenders the center of the country to an enemy within – an enemy that will follow the popular Arab template and create another hostile, antisemitic, misogynistic, and homophobic country ruled by Islamist dictators.  

It is time for a new look at an old problem.  There are indeed other possible approaches.  Here is one such approach from Moshe Phillips, the National Director of Herut USAI think you’ll find it interesting.  A new solution.
