Guterres calls for two-state solution for Israel, Palestine

Parmenio Sano | 12 Giugno, 2017, 22:30

The moment was captured in a now-famous photograph showing Yifat and two other soldiers as they glanced up at the limestone wall that is one of the holiest sites in Judaism and had been off limits to Jews for almost 20 years.

The military conflict began when Israel on June 5 launched a sudden pre-emptive airstrike that destroyed nearly all of the Egyptian air force on the ground. If anything, their resolve has grown stronger and new generations more desperate in the absence of any prospects of peace and wellbeing. The war returned us to our land at whose heart is unified Jerusalem but above all, the Six Day War taught us a permanent lesson that is the headstone: "Israel will defend itself by own in the face of every enemy, and against a cluster of enemies".

"It's a very serious and painful problem, for me personally", said Yifat, 74, on a recent visit to the Western Wall. Find us on Facebook too!

The number of those who favour the two-state solution has, however, declined since 2014-2016 when support was 59-60 per cent.

After fifty years, the disastrous Pyrrhic repercussions of this military victory are intensifying as the occupation of the West Bank solidifies both on the ground and in the minds of many Israelis, Palestinians, and their leaders.

"We insist that the Palestinians finally recognise Israel as the national home of the Jewish people", Netanyahu said.

Palestinians refer to the occasion as "the Naksa", or "the Setback", as a result of Israel's expansion of its military occupation and the humiliating defeat of the Arab nations who had intervened.

According to the report, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians have been imprisoned by Israel since 1967.

The Golan and east Jerusalem were subsequently annexed but the moves were never recognised by the worldwide community. Under worldwide law, the settlements are considered illegal, although Israel disputes this. Its supporters, including leaders from Cambridge-based Palestine Advocacy Project, said their resolution was not a radical departure from the positions of past US administrations. Another stated they were part of the demo to protest the occupation and "call all the world to recognise now the independent Palestinian state".


"Their intent is to make life so miserable for Palestinians so that they either succumb and submit to Israeli rule or that they leave".

Israeli authorities did not respond to requests for comment on the plans, which Peace Now said showed that "a two state solution is not on (Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's) agenda".

Danny Yatom, a former head of Mossad, Israel's spy service, says Palestinians will soon outnumber Jews in Israel.

"On 14 May 1948, the State of Israel was born".

Second, and perhaps equally important, is that if the Arab states do not agree to normalize relations with Israel, as is likely, Israel can then place the blame for the failure of renewed peace talks with the Palestinians on the Arabs.

On Tuesday, the High Planning Committee of the Civil Administration advanced plans for the first new settlement since 1993, to accommodate settlers evicted earlier this year from Amona, a settler outpost deemed illegal by Israel's courts.

Israel seized the Golan from Syria in the 1967 Mideast War and annexed it in 1981, a move never recognized by the global community.

Such deceit could not have gone unnoticed, yet the world has turned its attention to other problems, ignoring the festering wound in Palestine and one of its outcome, the scariest of all: extremist terrorist movements often claiming to manifest their sick fantasies in the name of Palestine and religion.

However, what did remain of this desired state after two decades of long-term war and renewed negotiations? Today, "everyone knows the word Palestinian".
