The ‘Two-State Solution’ to Destroy Israel
By Khaled Abu Toameh

Originally Published by the Gatestone Institute.

While the Biden administration continues to talk about its commitment to the “two-state solution,” a majority of the Palestinians are saying that they support the Islamist Hamas terror group and want to see more terrorist attacks against Jews.

The Biden administration is living under the illusion that the “two-state solution,” which would see the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian state alongside Israel, is the only way to achieve peace, security and stability in the Middle East.

The vast majority of the Palestinians, however, make it abundantly clear that they do not believe in the “two-state solution” and would rather see Hamas, the Iranian-backed terror group whose charter calls for the elimination of Israel, replace the Palestinian Authority headed by Mahmoud Abbas.

On June 30, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke with Abbas to discuss President Joe Biden’s upcoming trip to the Middle East.

“Secretary Blinken stressed the US commitment to improving the quality of life of the Palestinian people in tangible ways and the Administration’s support for a negotiated two-state solution,” said State Department Spokesperson Ned Price.

On the eve of Biden’s visit to Israel, the West Bank and Saudi Arabia, a public opinion poll conducted by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research indicated a significant drop in support among the Palestinians for the “two-state solution” and a rise in support for a return to an armed intifada (uprising) and terrorist attacks inside Israel.

According to the results of the poll, opposition to the concept of the “two-state solution” stands at 69%. Another 75% of respondents also expressed opposition to the idea of a one-state solution, where Israelis and Palestinians would live together and enjoy equal rights.

The poll found that 55% of the Palestinians support a return to armed confrontations and an intifada, an increase from 51% who supported a return to violence three months ago.

In addition, a majority of 59% said that they supported terrorist attacks carried out inside Israel by Palestinians during the past few months.

The vast majority of the Palestinians (69%) are also opposed to an unconditional resumption of Palestinian-Israeli peace negotiations. Another 65% are opposed to dialogue with the Biden administration.

The poll found that a majority of the Palestinians do not have confidence in Abbas, with whom the Biden administration is dealing with.

If new presidential elections were held today, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh would receive 55% of the votes, while Abbas would get only 33%, the poll showed.

Seventy-three percent of the Palestinians expressed dissatisfaction with the performance of Abbas, while another 77% said that they want him to resign.

Most Palestinians said that Hamas is the most deserving to represent and lead the Palestinian people.

Hamas’s rising popularity among the Palestinians means that the Palestinian state the Biden administration is seeking to establish next to Israel would soon be ruled by an Islamist group whose covenant states that “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as Islam obliterated others before it.”

As a majority of the Palestinians want to replace Abbas with a Hamas leader, it means that the proposed Palestinian state will be committed to the covenant of the terror group, which does not believe in Israel’s right to exist.

In case the Biden administration and the rest of the international community are not aware of Hamas’s agenda, they need to take a look at what the terror group’s covenant says.

Article 11 of the covenant states:

“The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Muslim generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part of it, should not be squandered; it, or any part of it, should not be given up. Neither a single Arab country nor all Arab countries, neither any king of president, nor all the kings and presidents, neither any organization nor all of them, be they Palestinian or Arab, possess the right to do that.”

The covenant (article seven) reminds Muslims of the famous hadith (saying) attributed to the prophet Mohammed:

“The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews, when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.”

The Palestinian state that the Biden administration is pushing for will undoubtedly be used by Hamas and its patrons in Iran as a launching pad to obliterate Israel.

Hamas leaders have never been anything but clear and consistent about their intention to eliminate Israel and kill Jews.

During a recent visit to Lebanon, Haniyeh, the Palestinians’ preferred candidate for president, stated that there is “no future” for Israel on “the land of Palestine.”

Haniyeh announced that Hamas was preparing for a “strategic battle” with Israel. “The Zionist entity is facing a dark future because of the Islamic resistance,” he said, praising Palestinians who carry out terrorist attacks against Israel.

Haniyeh said that in the event of a new military confrontation with Israel, Hamas will destroy the “Zionist entity” in a matter of minutes. “The Zionist entity will be struck with 150 rockets in less than five minutes,” he threatened.

During his visit to Lebanon, the Hamas leader participated in a meeting of the so-called National Islamic Conference together with leaders of the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terror militia. The conference was also attended by representatives from several Arab countries, including Egypt, Libya, Kuwait, Syria, Morocco, Jordan, Yemen, Lebanon, and Algeria.

The conference expressed full support for Hamas and terrorism against Israel and lashed out at Arab countries that established normalization with Israel.

“The conference notes the achievements and heroisms made by the Palestinian resistance in the against the Zionist enemy,” read a statement issued by the participants at the end of the meeting. “The conference supports all forms of resistance in the face of the Zionist enemy.”

The conference condemned some Arab countries’ efforts “to normalize with the Zionist enemy and open their countries to its army, economy, settlers and politicians.” It further denounced the efforts of Arab countries “to enter into military alliances with the Zionist enemy,” and called for canceling the Oslo Accords signed in 1993 between Israel and the PLO. The conference said that it “affirms the right of the Palestinian people to their historical land from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea.”

This statement is a huge boost to Hamas because the conference actually endorsed the terror group’s effort to destroy Israel and replace it with an Iranian-backed Islamist state run by Haniyeh and the mullahs in Tehran.

Hamas and its supporters do not believe in Biden’s “two-state solution” or any peace process with Israel. The only solution they want is one that would see Israel and the Jews vanish from this world. Sadly, a majority of the Palestinians (as evidenced by the latest poll) share the ideology of Hamas and want to see even more Jews killed.

The Biden administration needs to understand that, under the current circumstances, advancing the idea of a “two-state solution” is tantamount to advocating bloodshed and violence in the Middle East.

The administration also needs to understand that Abbas, the Palestinian leader it is endeavoring to engage and relying on to make peace, utterly lacks the backing of a majority of his people for any peace plan with Israel.

This obsession with a “two-state solution” seems to be reaching a fever pitch. Does anyone have any thoughts on how the “two-state solution” plays into prophecy?

When will those knuckleheads ever realize and do their history homework that there is no such thing as a "Palestinian" - they magically appeared after the 1967 war - the newest race of people on the planet - there is no such a thing as a Palestinian people, or a Palestinian culture, or a Palestinian language, or even a Palestinian history.
There has never been any Palestinian state, neither any Palestinian archaeological find nor coinage. The present-day "Palestinians" are an Arab people, with Arab culture, Arabic language and Arab history.
The use of the term "Palestinian" for an Arab ethnic group is a modern political creation which has no basis in fact - and had never had any international or academic credibility before 1967.
The Canaanite’s are historically acknowledged as the first inhabitants of the Land of Israel, before the Hebrews settled there. Indeed, the correct geographic name of the Land of Israel is Canaan, not "Palestine" which was a Roman invention

The people who call themselves the Palestinians are actually the Philistines. They have no rights to any part of Israel. God gave the land to Abraham who was Jewish.

Historically that is not accurate either - It is from the term "Philistines" that the name "Palestinians" has been taken. Actually, the ancient Philistines and modern Palestinians have something in common: both are invaders from somewhere else. That is precisely the meaning of their name, which is not an ethnic denomination but an adjective applied to them: Peleshet, from the verb "pelesh", "dividers", "penetrators" or "invaders". The Philistines were a confederation of non-Semitic peoples coming mostly from Crete, the Aegean Islands and Asia Minor, also known as "Sea Peoples". The original homeland of the group that ruled the Philistine federation, namely the "Pelesati", was the island of Crete

Those dwelling in Canaan were defeated by King David and reduced to insignificance, the best warriors among them were chosen as King David's bodyguard. The remaining Philistines still dwelling in Gaza were subdued by Sargon II of Assyria around 1194 BC and after that time, they disappeared definitively from history.
The Philistines are extinct and claims to alleged links with them are utterly false as they are historically impossible to establish. In any case, claiming a Philistine heritage is idle because it cannot legitimate any land in which they were foreign occupants and not native dwellers. Philistines were not/are not Arabs, and the only feature in common between both peoples is that in Israel they should be regarded as invaders, Philistines from the sea and Arabs from the land.

The Roman emperor Hadrian in 132 A.D., was utterly upset with the Jewish Nation and wanted to erase the name of Israel and Judah from the face of the Earth, so that there would be no memory of the country that belonged to that people. He decided to replace the denomination of that Roman province and resorted to ancient history in order to find a name that might appear appropriate, and found that an extinct people that was unknown in Roman times, called "Philistines", was once dwelling in that area and were enemies of the Israelite's. Therefore, according to Latin spelling, he invented the new name: "Palæstina", a name that would be also hateful for the Jews as it reminded them their old foes. He did so with the explicit purpose of effacing any trace of Jewish history.

Ancient Romans, as well as modern Palestinians, have fulfilled the Hebrew Scriptures Prophecy that declares: "They lay crafty plans against Your People... they say: ‘come, let us wipe them out as a nation; let the name of Israel be remembered no more'." - (Psalm 83:3-4). They failed, as Israel is still alive and well. Any honest person would recognize that there is no mention of the name Palestina in history before the Romans renamed the province of Judea, that such name does not occur in any ancient document, is not written in the Bible, neither in the Hebrew Scriptures nor in the New Testament, not even in Assyrian, Persian, Macedonian, Ptolemaic, Seleucian or other Greek sources, and that not any "Palestinian" people has ever been mentioned, not even by the Romans that invented the term. If "Palestinians" allegedly are the historic inhabitants of the Holy Land, why did they not fight for independence from Roman occupation as Jews did? How is it possible that not a single Palestinian leader heading for a revolt against the Roman invaders is mentioned in any historic record? Why there is not any Palestinian rebel group mentioned, as for example the Jewish Zealots? Why every historic document mentions the Jews as the native inhabitants, and the Greeks, Romans and others as foreigners dwelling in Judea, but not any Palestinian people, neither as native nor as foreigner? What is more, there is no reference to any Palestinian people in the Qur'an (Koran), although Muslims claim that their prophet was once in Jerusalem (an event that is not mentioned in the Koran either).

What other Arabs declared after the Six-Day War in 1967:
"There are no differences between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. We are all part of one nation. It is only for political reasons that we carefully underline our Palestinian identity... yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity serves only tactical purposes. The founding of a Palestinian state is a new tool in the continuing battle against Israel".
- Zuhair Muhsin, military commander of the PLO and member of the PLO Executive Council -

"You do not represent Palestine as much as we do. Never forget this one point: There is no such thing as a Palestinian people, there is no Palestinian entity, and there is only Syria. You are an integral part of the Syrian people; Palestine is an integral part of Syria. Therefore it is we, the Syrian authorities, who are the true representatives of the Palestinian people".

- Syrian dictator Hafez Assad to the PLO leader Yassir Arafat – (Yassir Arafat was an Egyptian not a Palestinian)

Humble apologies for the long reply - but history takes some time to type out - most of this came from my Master of Science Thesis from some 25 years ago

Palestinian is a derivative of "Philistine." Yes, they are knuckleheads.
