Why Israel is not a partner for any kind of peace? – By Ziad Khalil Abu Zayyad

(Before It's News)

The Israeli Palestinian conflict is not about religion but it is definitely religious. This may sound weird but when the conflict is observed from different angles than the ones that we are used to, we would find out many reasons that we did not think about while trying to understand why no one till now succeeded in solving this conflict that seems to be a title for the historical conflict over the holy land.

Israel whether at the time of signing the Oslo accords or at this moment did and will not have any real intentions to fully withdraw from the 1967 occupied lands for the sake of reaching a peace agreement with its enemy
which remains unfortunately as the Palestinian people before talking about political movements or leaders. The reasons why Israel would never withdraw or sign an agreement that ends its presence in the Palestinian occupied lands vary but the main concrete ones are:

  • Economy: Israel is now using the Palestinian lands for the sake of financial benefit through the settlements industry. Not only this, but building settlements for Israelis to live in became a winning card in the hand of the Israeli leader while the people are more and more attracted to the good deal they get and not having to pay taxes while living in settlements that are costing Israel an expensive price when talking about its security and the way the world look at it as an occupier that is breaking the International law.
  • Security: Israel is obsessed about security and this was proven through history; only a few years ago, Israel was still occupying Egyptian lands and Lebanese lands only because of its misleading belief that controlling more lands would protect it from any possible confrontation with an enemy that is in the region. While thinking that this strategy is a winning one, the Israeli security continues to be under minded almost daily in the occupied lands where the Palestinian people is trying to live in freedom.
  • Religion: it is clear and no one can deny that the majority of the Israeli people voted for two political parties that are known for their fanatic belief, which says that GOD personally gave this land to his chosen people and no one else is allowed to rule it: The Jewish Home and Likud.

All of the above can be summarized in one word: COLONIALISM. Israel remains as the only state that is practicing colonialism according to the teachings of the old school and tries to advance it to the modern one by trying to maintain a Palestinian authority regardless of who leads it in order to control the Palestinian lands indirectly. This plan did not succeed since the Palestinians succeeded in obtaining a recognition of their state and not authority from the majority of the world in the General Assembly. Such a recognition with the surprising lasting of the Palestinians in the face of the occupation made the Israeli strategies fall apart while trying to show that everything is still under control.

The Palestinian strategy succeed in facing the Israeli colonial gains from occupation and made it more expensive ethically and economically for the Israeli leadership and people:

  • The International and Local boycott of Israel is affecting it in almost every part of the Israeli life; products, economy, boycott, education, industry, socially and much more.
  • The Palestinian peaceful popular resistance is obliging the Israeli army to spend more millions than it budgets while trying to face young kids that they world look at through every mobile or camera that is documenting occupation daily.

Would Israel wake up to understand that the strategy of directing the conflict for the sake of some benefits is only costing more than it brings when talking about gains and losses in the long term?
