Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is a strong believer in peace. He wants Israel to have a piece of this portion of the West Bank and that portion of the West Bank which are inhabited by those who are not of the Jewish faith. He is currently in America to talk with President Obama and that guy who keeps on wandering around the Middle East talking about a different type of peace. HIs name is John Kerry and he wants a peace in which all sides compromise and reach an agreement. Prime Minister Netanyahu spoke before the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and assured one and all that he DOES seek peace. “I am prepared to make a historic peace with our Palestinian leaders. Peace would be good for us and good for the Palestinians and open the possibility of achieving better ties with other countries.” Absolutely correct. So, how can this be achieved:
1. Halt further new settlements on the West Bank.
2. Establish a Water Committee comprised of Palestinians and Israelis to establish how water can be distributed in an equitable fashion.
3. Drop demanding that Palestinians recognize Israel as a “Jewish state.” About 15% of the people are Christian or Muslim. NO other nation in the world makes such demands. Israel has a right to demand that its government be recognized.
4. Agree to a swap of land that would allow about 90% of Israelis currently in the West Bank to remain.
See how easy peace is to attain?
