Palestine

Who is in charge of Palestine? SJ Dodgson MJoTA 2015 v9n2 p0319

Who is in charge in Palestine? Hamas? Palestine Liberation Organization? Palestine National Authority? Very hard to unravel. Abbas is 80 and has overstayed his term.

The main authority is the occupying country of Israel. They make the rules and when they get mad, they bomb and bull-doze.

Who is attacking Israel? Not clear, occasionally someone launches a rocket or blows up a bus, appalling acts of violence and the perpetrators could be anyone from Dick Chaney's gang (they have been awarded oil drilling rights in Palestine) or ISIS or Hamas. But we know the civilians of Palestine are always blamed, always bombed and bull-dozed.

What is interesting to me is the increasing influence of citizens of Israel who are Arabs. They have a solid faction in the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, and they give every impression of being sane and sober and non-fundamentalist. Of course. The Arab faction is not religious, the individual members are Muslim and Christian, and Christians include Quakers. Maybe the biological solution is the best: wait until the old and angry die off and the moderate and non-oppressive will increase in influence and solve the tragedy that looks like an occupying force bent on genocide.

I do not see a problem with a country insisting on its citizens behaving themselves, which is Israel. The more I think about it, and the more I see the chaos in the lack of leadership in Palestine, the more I support one nation with all Palestinians being given full Israeli citizenship. Compensation for lands, that is tricky, I do not have a stand on that yet.

The video below, of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu interviewed when he was 28: he has nothing but contempt for Palestine and has not changed his stand on Palestine in 35 years. He went from being young and gorgeous to being old and not gorgeous, and he still uses the same script.
The State of Palestine is an occupied country without free passage from one part to another.

The State of Israel was declared in 1948, when the United Nations recognized the lands of Jews living in Israel, and gave lands of other Palestinians over to the only country in the world founded on a religion.

Why is this a problem in 2015? Because, according to Israel,  Israel has 8.2 million people of whom 75% are Jews and have rights of citizenship.

According to Palestine, the teeny tiny green spots on the map, known collectively as the West Bank, are inhabited by 2.7 million and the Gaza strip by 1.8 million. The West Bank settlements have many roads, passageways that Israel has claimed, with illegal Israeli settlements on land that has been set aside for Palestine. 

Information unattributed came from Wikipedia.
If you are born in Israel and have no other citizenship, you can get Israeli citizenship if you apply for it between your 18th and 25th birthdays. Palestinian Arabs do not have to join the army, as all Jews do. And the main goal of the army is to block Palestinian entry into territories demarcated as Israeli. They would also have to bomb and bull-doze Palestinian homes on Israeli orders.

 
"The Law of Return (1950) grants every Jew the right to come to Israel as an oleh (a Jew immigrating to Israel) and become an Israeli citizen.
"Jew" means a person who was born of a Jewish mother, or has converted to Judaism and is not a member of another religion.

Israeli citizenship becomes effective on the day of arrival in the country or of receipt of an oleh's certificate, whichever is later." From Israeli government website

Palestine in 1945. Jews lived in 6% of the land mass. Palestinians were Christians and Arabs. There was even a settlement of Europeans from the Religious Society of Friends who started Ramallah Friends School, in what is now part of the West Bank, in 1869.
From 1948, Palestinians were kicked out of their homes and herded to Palestine, which shrank to the green areas, with Israel spreading into the rest.
From 1993, Palestinians were jammed into the West Bank, and little green settlements in Gaza, with Jewish settlers occupying what should be Palestine lands.
Map from Wikipedia April 2019: countries in the world that recognize Palestine as an independent nation. I notice the absence of recognition by any nation in which my immediate family has citizenship.
