Today, Israel is facing various ‘intifadas’ or popular revolts of different kinds, led by Israelis, which is a novelty, because until now they have been organized by Palestinians to express the frustration they feel, having lost their land.
The first ‘intifada’ is that which is carried out by Israeli democrats against the government claiming supreme power to control it, in which Netanyahu himself is said to be involved, to whom serious accusations of corruption weigh. Those who are protesting, in my opinion quite rightly, understand that the popular roots of the state are called into question, but the matter goes further and affects its security, because members of the armed forces, especially the elected officers and pilots of the Air Force, are considering whether to obey executive orders without judicial power whether or not It is a serious matter and this has been warned by senior military leaders and officials.
According to the ‘Intifada’, it is a tradition fought by the Palestinians against the possessions of their lands since the very creation of the State of Israel, which was aggravated by the Six-Day War in 1967. The effort means that today the Palestinians are further than ever from the solution of “two states living together” about which mandate of the former British Palestine. We rightly criticize our decolonization of Western Guinea or the Equatorial Sahara, but we admit that it pales in comparison to the disasters left by the British in the Middle East, India / Pakistan or South Africa. The Abraham Accords, Washington’s concept of a carrot for some Arab countries to establish diplomatic relations with Israel, grew out of Palestine. This is how Morocco got the US to recognize its control over Western Sahara. But the real price was paid by the Palestinians, who were left at the feet of the horses, because they had the right to intervene, which was the de facto regulation of relations between Israel and the Arabs. This new frustration increases the firing of rockets from the Gaza Strip and prompts frequent terrorist attacks on Israeli citizens.
The third ‘intifada’ is Israel’s, like the first, and it is carried out by the colonists against the Palestinians, in whose land they settled. The current government rescinded the settlement of settlements in the West Bank with the resulting Palestinian protests, and as a result eleven Palestinians died in Nablo a few days ago by the Israeli army. In revenge, two settlers were killed and then their accomplices unleashed a spree of violence in Hawara, destroying dozens of houses and vehicles. He was killed by a Palestinian who had recently returned from a humanitarian mission to help earthquake victims in Turkey. In the same week, another military operation in Jenin resulted in the death of six Palestinians. Add and continue.
Israel has the problem of deciding whether it wants to be a democratic state (whose equal rights must incorporate the Palestinians), or preserve its Jewish identity (which requires that they are now kept in bantustans reminiscent of apartheid in South Africa). ). Or one or the other. The solution to this problem is two states and that fact prevents the multiplication of provinces.
To make matters worse, Israel is targeting the Islamic Republic of Iran to destroy what it calls “the Zionist entity.” After Trump made the huge mistake of unilaterally announcing the nuclear deal, Tehran is now increasing its Uranium to 83%, close to 90% needed to make a bomb. If Iran was a year from crossing the nuclear threshold then, today is only a week away and another existential problem for Israel has been added to the restoration of diplomatic relations between Tehran and Riyadh… thanks to China’s good offices. .
