  • ISRAELI ELECTIONS: WHAT NEXT FOR ISRAEL-PALESTINE?
    Gideon Levy touring Canada
    With its local partners, CJPME is delighted to host Israeli author and journalist Gideon Levy for an eight-city tour, March 22 - 29, 2015. Levy — a journalist with Haaretz since 1982 — will talk about the Palestine-Israel conflict in light of the March 17 Israeli elections in his talk entitled: "Israeli Elections: What next for Israel-Palestine?" Levy is a strong critic of Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians and a strong supporter of the boycott of Israel. Levy has also questioned the viability of the “two-state solution.” Each lecture will be followed by a Q&A period. This series of events is co-sponsored with several organizations across the country; please see the individual events for co-sponsoring organizations.

The 1946 map is 100 percent accurate and 100 percent misleading. True, 6 percent of the land was Jewish-owned and the rest was non-Jewish-owned but that does not mean Palestinian-owned. Only 3 percent was owned by local Arabs. 91 percent was owned by absentee Ottoman landlords. Private ownership, of course, has nothing to do with sovereign title.

The whole of the area plus an additional area about 4 times larger was transferred from the Ottoman Empire to the League of Nations after WWI as a trust area under the Palestine Mandate. It was intended as the Jewish homeland although the League retained the right to withhold the Jewish people’s right of settlement in the TransJordanian province of Palestine-now the Kingdom of Jordan-if they decided that local conditions made such action desirable. That left everything west of the Jordan River as the site of the Jewish state.

In other words, an Arab state was never contemplated by international treaty west of the Jordan River. “Palestinians” aren’t even referenced in UNSCR 242, the basis of regional diplomacy since 1967.

Arab Palestinians have no right to territory and all the other maps represent only opportunities that they threw away. In 1993, at Oslo, Israel voluntarily and foolishly offered another chance for Palestinians to gain territory through negotiations. To Hamas, negotiating means shooting rockets at Israel. They are very unclear on the concept.
