Is a peaceful resolution of the Israel-Palestine conflict REALLY possible?

I’ll begin my answer by saying that for some weeks I have been suppressing in my mind the conclusion that Palestine is a lost cause and that there is no point in me continuing to devote a great deal of time (as I have done for three decades) to writing books and articles which expose Zionism’s version of history – the version upon which the first and still existing draft of Western history is constructed – for the propaganda nonsense it mainly is. In other words I was close to concluding that I should close my Palestine file.

And while I was debating with myself about whether or not to do so I could see only one most likely end-game scenario, in two parts.

In part one, when Israel’s leaders conclude that they cannot break the will of the occupied and oppressed Palestinians and cause them to surrender on Zionism’s terms or, better still, pack up and leave to make a new life elsewhere, there will be a final Zionist ethnic cleansing of Palestine.

In part two, when the rising, global tide of anti-Israelism is transformed into anti-Semitism, there will be another great turning against Jews everywhere. This would be good news for Zionism’s leaders because it would enable them to say something like the following. “The world has always hated Jews and will always hate Jews, and that’s why Israel was created – to be a refuge of last resort for Jews everywhere. It is also why we will do whatever is necessary to keep this refuge secure. World, if you don’t understand that – go to hell.”

My response to Zionism’s assertion the world will always hate Jews is this. Yes, it’s true that on and off down the centuries Jews were persecuted; but there’s a very, very strong case for saying that after the Nazi holocaust, and because of it, the giant of anti-Semitism would have gone back to sleep and almost certainly died in its sleep if the major powers had not allowed Zionism to have its ethnic cleansing way.

There were two main reasons why I was entertaining the conclusion that Palestine is a lost cause.

One is the hypocrisy of Western leaders and their governments in talking about their commitment to a two-state solution while being complicit by default in Israel’s on-going colonization (ethnic cleansing slowly and by stealth) of 1967-occupied territory.

The fact that 134 countries have recognized the state of Palestine (what is it and where is it?) doesn’t change anything on the ground. One lady who believes it will is Sweden’s Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom. After her country’s decision to recognise the state of Palestine she said that recognition would “put each party on a LEVEL PLAYING FIELDĀ and help to move the peace process forward.”

Is she not aware that Israel’s leaders and the Zionist lobby in America control Congress and that the Palestinians have no influence there? Is she also not aware that nuclear-armed Israel is one of the most powerful countries in the world and that apart from Hamas’s not very effective rockets the only weapons available to the occupied and oppressed Palestinians are stones? (Israel has just brought in a law to make Palestinian stone throwing punishable by up to 20 years in prison!)

In that light how anybody can believe that recognizing Palestine puts it on a level playing field with Israel is far beyond my comprehension.
