The Jerusalem Post quotes the EU Parliament as giving overwhelming support for a two-state solution based on the 1967 lines. I might have supported this idea myself, if I knew from history that before 1967 there was no Arab terror, and that after 1967 Israel never made any efforts to come to a peaceful settlement with the Arab world once it withdrew from territories captured during the Six-Day-War. Unfortunately, this is not the case. To begin with, there has been Arab terror even pre-dating the establishment of the Jewish State. Moreover, the territories in question were captured by Jordan in the 1948 War of Independence, and were never supposed to be part of Jordan. Furthermore, Israel offered to withdraw from the areas of Judea, Samaria, and Gaza in exchange for a peace treaty and a clear declaration of an end to the conflict of the Israel-Arab conflict (as it was called in those days, for there was no mention of any Palestinian People as yet. They came into existence as part of the efforts to delegitimize Israel and the Jewish People living in their homeland.) It is unfortunate that the EU cannot see beyond its outdated stand. It is unfortunate that the EU gives support to an idea that cannot happen. At least not yet. There cannot be any solution to a conflict unless the truth comes out and is write LARGE! There must be recognition of Israel as the homeland of the Jewish People, as it has been since the Patriarch Abraham heeded the call to go forth and leave his father's house to seek the Land that G-d had promised him. This land has flourished under Jewish control. Until the Jews returned, it lay fallow.
