Iggy, Let's Cut the Crap. Israel Will Never Tolerate a Palestinian State

Never, as in not ever, Iggy and its time you came clean on Israel.  So long as Israel exists it will never tolerate a Palestinian state.

Why not?  Because Israel cannot get by without controlling the aquifer that lies beneath the West Bank.

Listen to former and current Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  This is what he told the Likud Party and it just doesn't get any clearer than this:

"A Palestinian state would control the aquifer, which gives us 30 percent of our water. Yes to a Palestinian state means no to a Jewish state, and yes to a Jewish state means no to a Palestinian State."
So let's cut the bullshit about Israel wanting to live peacefully beside the Palestinians.  That is a rancid fantasy.  There's a reason why the Israeli army of occupation in the West Bank bulldozes Palestinian orchards and refuses Palestinians permission to drill wells in their own land.  That water is Israel's even if it does belong to the Palestinians.  If the Palestinian shoe was on your foot Iggy, how would you react?

Are you saying Israel doesn't have the right to exist?

Netanyahu and Hamas both need to go. And replaced by governments more open to compromise.

Challenging, I know, but both a Palestinian and a Israeli state need to co-exist somehow.

I just don't know why it has to be an either/or thing. We should be supporting both.

Of course Israel has a right to exist but it cannot deprive the Palestinians of their own state. You say you don't know "why it has to be an either/or thing." What in Netanyahu's remarks did you not understand?

Israel is not going to leave the Palestinian lands until it is forced out. After forty years is that much not obvious?

It is abundantly clear that Israel will never accept a Palestinian state. It can only be imposed. However, there doesn’t seem to be any western nation to pressure Israel. Both Harper and Iggy trip over each other to extol the virtues of Israel and U.S. is not much different.

There actually are quite a few Jewish outside of Israel and in Israel that would like to see them get along, side by side. The trouble is very hard right ruling Israel now.

When did Netanyahu say this?
