Is Israel planning a unilateral withdrawal in the West Bank?

Saturday, June 7, 2014 | Tag Cloud

(Jerusalem Post / Worthy News)-- Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu left Knesset members in shock this past Monday by suggesting that Israel would have to "separate" from the Palestinians, according to a report which appears in Friday editions of the nationalist-religious newspaper Makor Rishon.

According to the report, which was written by the newspaper's political commentator, Ze'ev Kam, Netanyahu told lawmakers serving on the prestigious Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee that for Israel to maintain its Jewish character, it would have to reach "a separation from the Palestinians."

"I don't want one state from the Jordan [River] to the [Mediterranean] Sea," the premier is quoted as saying. "Even if the demographic balance doesn't change to our detriment and there is a Jewish majority, it is still obvious that we need to have a Jewish majority that is overwhelming and for that state to be democratic."

"And that is why we need to come to a separation," Netanyahu said.

  1. 19For as through the disobedience of one man many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the One many shall be made righteous.

    20And the Torah came in beside, so that the trespass would increase. But where sin increased, favour increased still more,

    21so that as sin did reign in death, even so favour might reign through righteousness to everlasting life through יהושע Messiah our Master.yesh.2 Corinthians 13:11-14
    11For the rest, brothers, rejoice. Be made perfect,a be encouraged, be of one mind, live in peace. And the Elohim of love and peace shall be with you.
    12Greet one another with a set-apart kiss.
    13All the set-apart ones greet you.
    14The favour of the Master יהושע Messiah, and the love of Elohim, and the fellowship of the Set-apart Spirit be with all of you. Amĕn

  2. Balfour Declaration was incorporated into International Law at San Remo

    San Remo Conference and its resulting Resolution cannot be overstated.

    For the first time in history, Palestine became a legal entity in 1920, notwithstanding the wishful thinking of the Arabs who now call themselves "Palestinians." The Jewish people became the national beneficiary (self-determination) of the trust awarded to the British under the Mandate, a "sacred trust of civilization" according to Article 22 of the Covenant of the League. Sovereignty in Palestine (de jure) was vested in the Jewish people but was kept in abeyance for the duration of the Mandate. The acquired legal title in Palestine by the Jewish people cannot be revoked by the League or its successor, the United Nations. These rights are implicitly protected by Article 80 of the UN Charter and Article 70(1-b) of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties. They have also been reaffirmed in the Levy Report, which is still pending adoption since July 2012 (*).

    San Remo also marks the end of the longest colonization period in history. After 1,850 years of Jewish exile from Palestine since the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE – and a concurrent succession of foreign occupiers including Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Crusaders, Mamluks and, finally, the Ottoman Turks – the Jewish nation was reconstituted in San Remo (not "created") on the basis of its historical connection, and the Jewish State was proclaimed 28 years later, in May 1948.
