LAND FOR PEACE?

Posted by JewishRefugee



In 1929, Israel has agreed to the Peel Partition Plan which is about 15% of present day Israel but its Arab counterparts completely disregarded this idea. In 1967, Israel has captured vast amount of land in the defensive war which almost tripled its pre-war size (1947 U.N. Partition Plan). The Arab nations understood that the military conquests against Israel are futile after 1973 the Yom Kippur War. So the Arab nations have changed its strategy which evolved into the “land for peace” diplomatic process or diplomatic annihilation of Israel. In 1977 Israel signed a peace treaty while Egypt has only signed some piece of paper. In return for peace Israel has surrendered the Sinai Peninsula. In 1994, Israel and Jordan signed a peace treaty in which Israel gave Jordan around 300 square kilometer of land and water rights. But the final blow to the State of Israel was the signing of the Oslo Accords in 1993 at which Israel basically recognized Palestinian Authority self government. Oslo Accords paved the way to the present day Gaza and Judea and Samaria (so called West Bank).
The only problem with these agreements is that the only side that actually respects it is Israel. Arafat was talking peace in English and calling for the destruction of Israel in Arabic, Egyptian armies only motto to train is to fight its only enemy Israel. So as we can see Israel has shrunk significantly but this is not the end it may be pushed into the 1940’s lines which are also called the Auschwitz indefensible lines. Perhaps Jewish people will have to build men-made island of the cost of the Mediterranean? By the way did giving land brought peace to Israel? Or is problem is in the Independence of that land in the middle of the Arabic mainland? You can click on each map to see a higher resolution.

Look at the present day Israel how smaller can it get?

The way it is looking today I get the strong feeling that Israeli politicians are going to give more land away. If you look at the Gaza strip it is clear what kind of neighborhood their is going to be.
