Netanyahu Offers His Three Conditions For Peace With Palestinians

It’s been very easy since the beginning: return the hostages, Hamas dismantles. Too bad he can’t add “replace the Iranian government with a non-terrorist government”

Netanyahu Offers 3 Prerequisites for Peace

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this week outlined three prerequisites for peace in the region following months of war with Hamas.

Netanyahu, in an opinion piece published by The Wall Street Journal on Monday, outlined the three: the destruction of Hamas, the demilitarization of Gaza, and the deradicalization of Palestinian society.

“First, Hamas, a key Iranian proxy, must be destroyed. The U.S., U.K., France, Germany, and many other countries support Israel’s intention to demolish the terror group,” Netanyahu wrote.

For all the support of Hamas by Democrat voters here in the US and by Leftists in Europe and other areas, Hamas is a designated terrorist group by the US State Dept, the European Union, and the United Nations (with quite a few voting members forgetting that).

“Second, Gaza must be demilitarized. Israel must ensure that the territory is never again used as a base to attack it,” he added.

According to Netanyahu, this will involve creating “a temporary security zone” on Gaza’s perimeter and a border inspection system to prevent weapons smuggling. He also claimed that expecting the Palestinian Authority to demilitarize Gaza “is a pipe dream.”

In other words, Iran will no longer allowed to send weapons there or the supplies to make weapons, like how Hamas took water pipes and turned them into rockets.

“Third, Gaza will have to be deradicalized,” the prime minster continued. “Schools must teach children to cherish life rather than death, and imams must cease to preach for the murder of Jews. Palestinian civil society needs to be transformed so that its people support fighting terrorism rather than funding it.”

That is the toughest one: how do you turn a people around, a people who are so radicalized that no other Middle East nation wants them? So problematic that none want them? Egypt doesn’t. Nor Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, or others. You don’t see Iran taking them in, do you? Even if you end the UN run schools which radicalize children, how do you keep the adults from radicalizing the kids? How do you stop it in mosques? Where do you even start? I can think of a few ideas, but, then I go, “what about doing X?” and then “well, yes, but, you also need Y and Z.”

    Looks like there will be no end to the war then. Gaza is not going to end Hamas. They are not even capable of thinking that. Even if Israel manages to kill all current members, new members will spring up instantly from the general population. Neither can thee be a de-militarization. Israel already prohibits the importation of weapons into Gaza and Hamas in Gaza has weapons anyway. It’s almost as if prohibiting weapons really doesn’t stop criminals from getting them. Finally, Even if you replace ever UN funded school teacher with Jewish grandmothers, The children’s parents will still continue the campaign at home. Even the thousands of casualties will be replaced by the birth rate in a few months. In a few months, the only evidence of Israel’s efforts will be the destroyed buildings.

    Palestinians lived in land that Israel conquered. It up to them to deal with that not other countries.
    Killing 14000 women and children does not for bode a peaceful future for Israel.

    Kick the UN out. Ban Islam. Cut off food, welfare, and foreign aid. Terrorists forced to go to work do not have time to spend all day hating non-believers and making little terrorists.

  5. MN Steel says:

    Funny, seems to me a different elected leader made almost the exact same conditions to end conflict a year and a half ago.

    “That Israel conquered.” You mean the land that was given to them by the UN?
