Why a One-State Solution Is Better Than a Two-State Solution in Palestine-Israel

A two-state solution (that is, having two separate nations) in Palestine-Israel would not challenge and threaten the forces of imperialism, but a secularized one-state nation in Palestine-Israel would.  The forces of imperialism include the imperial nations such as the United States, the military-industrial complex, and NATO.    

The United Nations Partition Plan  was adopted on November 29, 1947.  Part I of the plan stipulated that the British Mandate (that lasted from 1922 to 1948) would be terminated as soon as possible.  The Arab Palestinians considered the UN partition plan to be pro-Zionist with 56% of the land allocated to the Jewish state, considering that the Arab Palestinian population was twice the Jewish population at that time.  According to this “not secure” link that I clicked on anyway, “in 1920 the overwhelming majority of the Palestinian population was Arab, mostly Sunni Muslim.”  

The British mandate ended on May 15, 1948.  The day before in the afternoon of May 14, 1948, the Zionist State of Israel was declared in Tel-Aviv. 

After the United Nations adopted its partition plan on November 29, 1947 for Palestine, it caused the 1947-1948 civil war  between Arabs and Jews.  Then after the  British Mandate  ended and the State of Israel was declared, the very next day the surrounding Arab nations declared war on Israel, and that war is referred to as the  1948 Arab-Israeli War.  The Arab-Israeli War resulted in the  Nakba, which was the catastrophe in which 80% of the population (more than 700,000 Palestinians) were expelled or fled from their homes.

Even the fairest two-state partition plan will not eliminate the bitterness and hatred between Arabs and Jews that developed  increasingly when Jewish Zionists started immigrating into the Arab land of Palestine in the 1920s.  When the Jews started immigrating into Palestine, they did not just integrate with the Palestinians.  No, they remained separate with a belief in Zionism.  They believed they were entitled to that land, their ancient homeland, and they eventually developed a plan (Plan Dalet or Plan D) for the systematic removal of Palestinians, also referred to as the ethnic cleansing of Palestine. 

The rivalry between Jews and Arabs has its roots in the ancient biblical account of Isaac and Ishmael. However, Jews, Muslims, and Christians in Palestine had gotten along just fine under the Ottoman Empire, which was dissolved at the end of World War I.  

The imperial forces and nations can tolerate a two-state solution because Zionist Israel would still be allowed to exist. But the imperial forces will absolutely not tolerate having one nation for all Palestinians, Jews, and Christians living in Palestine-Israel because it would cause the end of Zionism.  Zionism is anchored in the belief that Jews as a nationality and religion deserve their ancestral homeland Israel.  Zionist Israel gives the imperial nations a base and an ally to keep the Middle-East under its control.   

With even the best partition plan for Israel and Palestine as two separate nations, Zionism in Israel would still be allowed to exist. So a two-state solution, though not preferable, would be acceptable to the imperialists.  But if all the Jewish, Muslim, and Christian residents of Palestine-Israel have an equal vote in one secularized national government, the religious ideologies of Zionism and Hamas will not be very popular.       

The war profiteers desperately need the regional instability created by the Zionist State of Israel to increase their profits.    As conflicts increase, profits increase.  As conflicts decrease,  profits decrease.  Zionists and war-profiteering imperialists need each other.  

If Zionism is democratically removed from the State of Israel, and Hamas is democratically removed from Gaza, peace and harmony in the Middle East could actually become a reality, but that would be an enormous threat to the military-industrial complex that makes money from the justification of endless wars, that makes money from conflicts that are deliberately created.  In 2009 Ron Paul explained in  this  1-minute video that Israel encouraged and helped start Hamas!    

The imperial forces don’t want peace and harmony in the Middle East.  They purposely and permanently want division and discord in the Middle East and throughout the world.  They use a strategy of divide and conquer. They want to keep controlling the world as they have since ancient times.  Imperialists love to create the collapse of a society or nation because then they can conquer it and impose a new totalitarian order (the opposite of a democratic society) that is easier for the imperialists to control.  The imperial forces are dark and evil forces, if not satanic.  

The integration of Jews, Muslims, and Christians into a secular one-state nation would be a win-win situation for everyone except the war profiteers of the military-industrial complex.   

Having two independent nations (the two-state solution) would help the Palestinians the most because Israel currently has control of the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and Gaza.  But integrating Jews, Muslims, and Christians into a secular one-state nation would be the best solution and the highest achievement. Considering the current tensions and hostilities between Palestinians and Jews, a one-state nation could create a safer homeland for Jews and Christians as well as the Palestinians.  

If all the Jews, Muslims, and Christians in a secularized, one-state national government in Palestine-Israel have equal rights, the religious ideologies of Zionism and Hamas would not be tolerated. Why not equally-empower the 7 largest political parties and give those parties proportionate control of the mainstream media? 

How can we create healing, forgiveness, and reconciliation between Palestinian Arabs and Israeli Jews?  

We must create a secular national government for all Jews, Muslims, and Christians that live in Palestine-Israel.  This would remove and disempower the imperialist base in Zionist Israel, and it would also eliminate the religious ideologies of Zionism and Hamas.                       

The imperial nations deeply invested in the Middle East crisis dearly love the current situation in which Zionist Israel has control of the Palestinian territories. For Muslims, Jews, and Christians living in Palestine-Israel, a two-state solution would be better, but a one-state solution would be best.
