Israel’s greatest security assurance

Surely Israel’s greatest security will come from ending the illegal occupation and oppression of the Palestinian people in what is internationally recognised as Palestinian land.

The entire Arab league has twice in recent years offered Israel full normalisation for an end to its occupation that has been in place since 1967. The Palestinian Authority has gone further, it recognises Israel inside 67 borders which is far greater than what Israel was allocated in the UN partition plan of 1947 that led to the creation of Israel.

This offer would also isolate Iran and starve terror groups who use this issue to justify their actions.

No Israeli government has ever recognised a Palestinian state based on internationally recognised borders. Israel achieved peace with Jordan and with Egypt by ending its occupation of Egyptian lands.

The Israeli Government’s current policy of expansion over security is not consistent with peace.
