Why there will never be a just peace in Palestine

Likud's 1999 election platform.
The Government of Israel flatly rejects the establishment of a Palestinian Arab state west of the Jordan river.

Note that the lie Israel uses to justify its refusal to recognise Hamas is that Hamas will not recognise the Israeli state. Note also the lie that Zionists tell over and over, that the Palestinians have stood in the way of peace because of their rejectionism. Hasbara is a powerful tool: few in the West would be aware that Likud not only has no intention ever to comply with its obligations on settlements, but stands for election on the basis that it won't.

When I was reading this, I kept hoping it was a parody, or an antisemitic invention. But no. This is what they stood for. I couldn't find anything on the web to suggest they have changed their platform. Indeed, Knesset member Uzi Landau says:

I am against the establishment of a Palestinian state and everything must be done to prevent it.


Meanwhile, in the States, a critic of American policy on Israel, Chas Freeman, was chased out of his new post as a spy chief. Why? Because he would oversee intelligence on the Middle East, and Israel is desperate for the States to agree that Iran could build nukes. Which it can't, of course, but Israel doesn't care. It is itching to bomb Iran and if it has to invent an excuse to do it, it will.

Why would Israel want to bomb Iran? All sorts of reasons, of which a vanishingly small one is fear of Iran.

How naive you have been. Israel is a racist apartheid nation in search of a final solution.

I know what Israel is. You'll note, if you read closely, that Likud shows dissent from the views of the "left". There is a plurality of opinion in Israel, although it's true that a lot of positions we find unacceptable are very broadly shared. Mind you, they are broadly shared outside Israel too.
