There is a strong tendency among Palestinian supporters to equate the two-state solution with the goal of the US-led so-called “peace process”. This is a fundamental error with important strategic consequences in terms of achieving an end to Israel’s occupation regime.
The world’s governments continue to endorse the ‘two-state solution’ while civil society observers realize that Israel is adamant in its refusal to allow an independent Palestinian state to feels no pressure from the US to change course.
Zionists’ protestations over Virgin Airlines’ offering of a couscous-style salad “inspired by the flavours of Palestine” is a manifestation of their desire to wipe from memory how the “Jewish state” of Israel was built atop emptied and destroyed Palestinian villages.
Contrary to the popular Zionist myth upon which the entire so-called “peace process” was premised, UN Security Council Resolution 242 requires Israel to fully and immediately withdraw its armed forces from occupied Palestine.
Without the enforcement of international law, Israel will not willingly change its position, and the Palestinian leadership will find itself in direct confrontation with the Palestinian people if it fails to transition toward that end.
