The Two State Solution is a Victory for the Proxy War against Israel

When Hitler wanted to carve up Czechoslovakia he began by demanding the Sudetenland, inhabited by the Volksdeutsche, ethnic Germans living in Czechoslovakia. The world thought this was entirely reasonable and Czechoslovakia was forced to give in. Of course Hitler did not simply want the Sudetenland, anymore than he simply wanted the Rhineland. He was after a much vaster program of conquest.

By coining the term "Volksdeutsche" Hitler created an artificial identity for large numbers of Czechs, Poles and citizens of other Eastern European nations. He used that identity to create regional fifth columns that engaged in terrorism and then used them as justification to invade and seize other nations. Only by the time his ambitions reached Poland did Western Europe wake up to realize what their appeasement toward Nazi Germany had wrought.

By the time it was all over nearly 80 million were dead, a continent lay in ruins, Eastern Europe was in the hands of the Communists and Western Europe's Great Powers would never come into their own again.

"Palestine" like Volksdeutsche is an artificial identity created in order to maintain a fifth column and use them to conduct a proxy war against Israel, by the same Arab Muslim powers who had tried and fail to defeat Israel on the battlefield.

The tactic of course long predates and postdates Hitler. Alexander the Great made use of it in his conquests. The Russians used it only last year when they wanted to invade Georgia. But in the post-WW2 era it has most effectively been employed against Israel.

The absurdity of taking a Greco-Roman name for the region and trying to turn it into two things it never was, a nation and an ethnic identity, would have been inconceivable without heavy backing from both the Soviet Union and Western liberals. But by painting the genocidal urge of both Arab Marxists and Islamists as a drive to liberate "Palestine", the proxy war by Arab terrorists backed by Egypt, Jordan and Syria, and more recently by Iran, was successfully repackaged by an oppressed people to liberate a land that never existed.

As "Volksdeutsche" gave Hitler the right to carve up and eventually annex Czechoslovakia, "Palestine" has given the Muslim world and assorted leftists the right to carve up and destroy Israel under the pretext of aiding the "Palestinian People."

In 1937, Awni Abd al-Hadi told the Peel Commission stating, "Palestine is a term the Zionists invented.... Our country for centuries was part of Syria,"

As late as 1980 the Jordanian Prime Minister stated, "The Palestinians and Jordanians do not belong to different nationalities. They hold the same Jordanian passports, are Arabs and have the same Jordanian culture."

In 1977, Zuheir Mohsen, head of the second largest militia within the PLO and once considered a potential successor to Arafat, stated the premise of the proxy war quite frankly;

The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct "Palestinian people" to oppose Zionism.

For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.

Arafat himself expressed the same basic idea in his infamous U.N. speech in 1988, saying, "The State of Palestine is an Arab State; its people are an integral Part of the Arab nation."

Hamas' Foreign Minister Mahmoud Zahour repeated it in an Economist interview in 2008;

He certainly would not now “accept the reality” of Israel, as some of his senior colleagues have hinted. It may, instead, become “an eternal issue”, he says, looking ahead to a distant future when, “like your European Union”, the Arab nation will form one state across its historic lands, joining up with other Muslim nations such as Turkey. “We [Palestinians] were never an independent state in history,” he notes. “We were part of an Arab state and an Islamic state.”

That "Great Arab State" or "Great Islamic State", or Caliphate, has always been the endgame. Palestine is to the Caliphate, what the Sudetenland was to Hitler's Thousand Year Reich.

Israel is a stubborn little non-Arab non-Muslim state that stands in the way of the great dream of the Caliphate, a vast Muslim empire stretching across the Middle East into Turkey, Asia and even the heartland of Europe itself.

The fury directed at Israel from the Muslim world is in direction proportion to Israel's obstruction of this messianic vision of an Islamic Arab ruled Ummah stretching across the entire globe and fulfilling the vision of Mohammed.

It was never about "Palestinian rights", because not only is there no Palestinian people, but the refugee camps were themselves created by the Arab world as a first stage for the proxy war.

They began by alternately luring and badgering Arabs out of Israel during the War of Independence, for example;

"Of the 62,000 Arabs who formerly lived in Haifa not more than 5,000 or 6,000 remained. Various factors influenced their decision to seek safety in flight. There is but little doubt that the most potent of the factors were the announcements made over the air by the Higher Arab Executive, urging the Arabs to quit....It was clearly intimated that those Arabs who remained in Haifa and accepted Jewish protection would be regarded as renegades."

The Economist, October 2, 1948

And naturally as renegades they would have been treated the same as the Jews, or perhaps even worse, during what was then seen as the "inevitable conquest" of Israel by the neighboring Arab states. At the very least that would mean the loss of property and land. At most it would mean outright massacre.

Once out they became refugees, kept in camps, and maintained as displaced persons, to serve as fodder for both terrorist recruitment and world outrage against Israel. As succinctly stated by UNRWA Director Ralph Galloway in 1958, "The Arab states do not want to solve the refugee problem. They want to keep it as an open sore, as a weapon against Israel. Arab leaders do not give a damn whether Arab refugees live or die."

After two lost wars, the "open sore" was transformed into a new Palestinian nation that had never existed but was being suppressed by Israel. Palestinian Terrorism became global, as part of a proxy war conducted by Arab states against Israel, itself part of a proxy war being conducted by the USSR against the West. With the fall of the USSR, the proxy war has shed its Arab Marxist colors in favor of Arab Islamist ones, replacing Fatah, once backed by Arab Socialist regimes in Egypt, Syria and Iraq, in favor of Hamas, backed by Islamist regimes in Iran and Saudi Arabia.

The Two State solution is the Sudetenland solution, carving up Israel and creating a sovereign and legally independent terrorist regime at war with Israel... inside Israel. With weapons flowing from around the Middle East and Pakistan through open borders, the real job of destroying Israel will finally begin.

Supporting the Two State solution means quite simply supporting the endgame of the proxy war against Israel. The solution has nothing to do with Palestinian rights or stabilizing the Middle East. There is no "tough love" in it, as Obama insists, or love of any kind. It is simply the final phase in the destruction of Israel, which itself is only one phase in the creation of a global Islamic empire.

Advocating the Two State solution means advocating genocide and ethnic cleansing. It means destroying the Middle East's only democracy to make way for a monstrosity that would be the worst of the Taliban writ large across the region and the globe. It means stoning, amputation and a thousand uncounted brutalities. And most of all it brings WWIII or a global clash of civilizations that much closer.

There are two kinds of people who support the Two State Solution. Those who know what they support and those who do not.

There was an excellent article titled "Palestinian Irredentism: The Lesson of History" by Steven Plaut showing the astonishing parallels between the situation of pre-War Czechoslovakia & Israel's current situation.
Israel has a large & hostile Arab population with Israeli citizenship - 1,5 million or about 20% of Israel's population. In the event that an independant Palestinian state is created, what will be their reaction? They will want open borders, they will want "family reunification" meaning unrestricted immigration of Arabs into Israel, they will demand the right to marry & bring their spouses to Israel.
You can bet that they will also aid terrorists to infiltrate into Israel, they will pass information to terrorist networks, & many will engage in ''homegrown'' terrorist operations.

Within a year or two of getting the West Bank the missiles and rockets will start firing but this time much closer to Israeli cities and towns. Muslims can make all the promises in the world but any West Bank regime will not and cannot control the Jihadists with their rockets

Every treaty with Muslims will be broken by them. Muhammad advocated this. Lets face facts. Muslims are addicted to Jihad so after any pause or "peace treaty" the Jihad is started up again

A brilliant analysis. Thanks.

What is the difference between the Arabs and Nazi Germany in this situation? The Arabs lack discipline, they are lazy, even though the world tries their hardest to help them. I have yet to see an article of yours I don't fully agree with.

Brilliant writing and news gathering. I hope you submit this for publication.


"The fury directed at Israel from the Muslim world is in direction proportion to Israel's obstruction of this messianic vision of an Islamic Arab ruled Ummah stretching across the entire globe and fulfilling the vision of Mohammed."

Yes, and Barack Obama is perfectly poised as the evil leader of this Muslim messianic movement waiting in the shadows.

"There are two kinds of people who support the Two State Solution. Those who know what they support and those who do not."

My gut instinct tells me that those who know what they support and those who don't both know exactly what they support. It's just that the later is less public and vocal about it.

This might be off the wall but...though I don't think people are destined to be either good or evil I do believe that some people as Jung suggested have different archetypes and are more prone to behave in certain ways.

Some are supportive of Jews, other destructive, others silent in the face of persecution. There have always been Oscar Shindlers and Corrie Ten Booms throughout history just as there have been Adolf Hitlers, SS, and silent accomlices.

It's happened so often and predictablty through history that it does make me wonder if Jung was right about archetypes and perhaps there are anti-Semitic archetypes as well.

The "Shoah Dream Project" web site is interesting. It documents various dreams people have had about the Shoah.

Some have recurring dreams about being victims. Others about being righteous genitles saving Jews and others about being Nazis.

It just makes me wonder...

The Arabs have done their best to imitate Nazi Germany, but without the technological infrastructure.

Thank you for this interesting & enlightening explanation of the muslim world wanting to unite and Israel standing in their way. Just like GWB thought he was "ordained by God" to bring peace (and democracy) to the middle east, perhaps Obama thinks he is "ordained by Allah" to reunite the muslim world and in so doing bring about the destruction of Israel. I say Thank Goodness for Israel. Long may she live!!!

Sultan Knish said...

With his Muslim background, Obama may well have been impregnated with the populist idea in the Muslim world, that the conflicts in the Muslim world can only end if there is a unified Muslim state.

He may even see that as an idealistic goal that would bring real peace.

You have clearly illustrated the utter fallacy of 'liberating palestine' and the entire 'palestinian cause', to which so much of the world subscribes.

I think you are being very generous in suggesting that Obama might possibly believe his policies re Israel etc could bring peace. I think the truth is somewhat darker. Anyone who could actually stand there in Cairo and state publicly that Islam promotes 'racial tolerance' is more than a fool. That wasn't merely diplomacy - it was *fiction*.

I would also suggest that a major problem is Israel's lack of PR. Israel is always on the defensive against Arab propaganda. Arab and Muslim revisionism is WORKING.

It's far more dangerous, I would submit, than Holocaust Denial.

If anyone's interested, I've argued this further in an article here:

This is not a recent problem. Israel's PR has been a major problem since at least 2002 and this DOES have repercussions.

Sultan Knish,

I thought Azmi Bishara the former Arab Knesset member who uttered in 1972: " The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity" and NOT Zuheir Mohsen...

Azmi Bishara is now living in Cairo and had renounced his Israeli cititenship because he was going to be indicted for helping secure arms to Hizbollah in summer 2006 (the second lebanese war).

Here is the clip of him on YOUTUBE.

Sultan Knish said...


yes Bishara said something similar and I have cited the video you mention in another post. This however refers to Zuheir Mohsen

Sultan Knish said...


When I say Obama thinks it will bring peace, I don't mean between Muslim and Jew. He thinks it may bring peace with the Muslim world, or at least the Arab world, though non-Arab Muslims, or non-pure Arab Muslims like Obama have to be pretty conflicted about the issue considering how Arab Muslims tend to treat them like dirt.

Israel's lack of PR has been a major problem for a long time, but that's essentially because Israel has never properly adapted to or recovered from the liberal rejection of it

"He may even see that as an idealistic goal that would bring real peace."

wow Knish, you're a super-grade analyst! So piercing, so detached.

Ever since I read your peace on Obama's plan to bring Israel down, I return to your site more and more.

You consistently put out some superb analysis! The only question I still have not found an answer to, what should we do to save ourselves?

I mean, for me the answer is the nuclear missiles strike at the Iranian nuke sites TODAY. But I'm in doubt our "leaders" will dare do that, with all the subcutaneous remote-controlled devices and such. :-)

(I'm pretty sure that's what Sharon got on his "kidney treatment", and heavens know what kind of treatment Netanyahu got for his "eye sore").

Sultan Knish said...

What we need to do is have some pride, stand up for ourselves and make sure those are the governing principles

when a nation does that, it can stand up for itself

when it can't, well we can see the consequences of that today
