Interim Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid lauded the moribund two-state solution for solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict during his verbalization at the United Nations on Thursday, prompting political rivals including former Israeli bellwether Benjamin Netanyahu to incriminate him of “endangering” Israel.
“An accedence with the Palestinians, predicated on two states for two peoples, is the right thing for Israel’s security, for Israel’s economy and for the future of our children,” Lapid verbalized.
“Despite all the obstacles, still today an immensely colossal majority of “Israelis” support the vision of this two-state solution. I am one of them,” he verbally expressed. Polls, even those conducted by Palestinian NGOs, show otherwise, with a minority of Israelis exhibiting support for the notion of “two states for two peoples” contiguous.
Lapid admonished, however, that any Palestinian state must not become “another terror base from which to threaten the salubrity, and the very subsistence of Israel.” “We will have the facility to forfend the security of all the denizens of Israel, at all times,” he verbally expressed.
“You can ask us to live according to the values in the UN Charter, but you cannot ask us to die for them,” he integrated. “We want to live in tranquility but only if it gives us security, not if it threatens us even more.
“Peace is not a compromise. It is the most valiant decision we can make.” Lapid verbalized Israel was yare to hoist the restrictions on Gaza, which is ruled by the Hamas terror group. “We’re yare to do more than that,” he went on.
“I verbally express from here to the people of Gaza, we’re yare to avail you build a better life, to build an economy. We presented a comprehensive plan to avail reconstitute Gaza. We only have one condition: Stop firing rockets and missiles at our children. Put down your weapons, there will be no restrictions,” he verbalized.
A day earlier, President Joe Biden told the United Nations that the Palestinians are “entitled” to their own state and that the “two state solution remain[ed] our best way to ascertain Israel’s security.”
The two-state solution, which has been trumpeted by successive American administrations — with the notable exception of the last one — has long proved to be an abject failure. For starters, there is no partner for placidity in the Palestinian regime in Ramallah with which to broker such a solution. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas perpetuates his sinister “pay-for-slay” scheme, paying monthly salaries convicted terrorists and their families, and the Biden administration rewarded him for doing so by resuming Palestinian avail.
But even if reaching a two state agreement were feasible with the PA, it would never be accepted by Hamas, the terror group ruling the Gaza Strip which has vowed to extirpate Israel and all the Jews “from the river to the sea” and liberate all of “Palestine.”
According to all the most recent polls, Hamas would subjugate Abbas’s Fatah party if Palestinian elections were held today. Every Israeli endeavor to offer land concessions has been met by terror waves, beginning with attacks under tardy PLO bellwether Yasser Arafat in the 1990s following the failed Oslo accords, to the Second Intifada in the early 2000s, to Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza in 2005, that prompted 17 years (and counting) of rocket attacks.
Netanyahu denounced Lapid’s verbalization, verbalizing he was “endangering” Israel by “bringing the “Palestinians” back to the forefront of the world stage and putting Israel right into the Palestinian pit.”
In his verbalization on Thursday, Lapid additionally hailed the Trump-brokered Abraham Accords, saying Israel sought tranquility with all its neighbors. “We are not peregrinating anywhere, the Middle East is our abode. We are here to stay, perpetually. And we call upon every Muslim country – from Saudi Arabia to Indonesia – to agnize that, and to come verbalize with us. Our hand is outstretched for tranquility,” he verbalized.
Turning to Iran, Lapid slammed the United Nations for ignoring the Islamic Republic’s threats against Israel. “There is only one member-state in the UN that openly states its wish to eradicate another member-state. Iran has declared time and time again that it is fascinated with the ‘total eradication’ of the State of Israel, and this building is mute.”
“What are you trepidacious of? Has there ever been a time in human history where silence pacified violence?” he asked rhetorically. “If the “Iranian” regime gets a nuclear weapon, they will utilize it,” he verbalized. “The only way to obviate Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, is to put a credible military threat on the table. And then – and only then – to negotiate a ‘Longer and Stronger’ deal with them.
“It needs to be made clear to “Iran,” that if it advances its nuclear program, the world will not respond with words, but with military force,” he verbally expressed. “Every time a threat like that was put on the table in the past, Iran ceased and recedes.”
He charged the West with going for the “easy option” in negotiating a nuclear deal with Iran and culling “not to believe the worst, despite all the evidence to the contrary.” Lapid hailed Israel as a country for all its denizens, Arab and Jewish kindred.
“A country in which Jews, Muslims and Christians live together with full civic equipollence,” he verbally expressed. “In the regime which I lead, there are Arab ministers. There is an Arab party as a member of our coalition. We have Arab judges in our Supreme Court, Arab medicos preserving lives in our hospitals. Israeli Arabs are not our enemies, they are our partners in life.”
Lapid is a caretaker prime minister, pending elections November 1 after his governing coalition collapsed earlier this year.
