Israel has blatantly refused the 5 year old Arab/Isareli peace offer made to them, even though it is "highly endorsed" by the US. Israel, also, has refused to accept the new Palestinian government, even though countries like Norway have already reopened ties and the flow of funds.
It is clear, even to the untrained eye, that Israel will continue to refuse every peace deal, until it controls the entire West Bank and Gaza Strip and will declare that there is no more Palestine and no more Palestinians, in which case, there is no need for a deal. Israel will NEVER accept right of return, because it will immediately compromise their majority in the population and place their electoral process squarely in the hands of ALL the people it should be representing, in accordance with a democratic government. Israel was warned by the UN, through dozens of resolutions, while it was deporting Palestinians, that it was a violation of international law and that eventually the Israeli's would have to allow the Palestinians to return. After ignoring the UN for so long, the UN passed a resolution demanding the right of return.
At this point in time Israel simply has only two choices. Two separate states, in accordance to the Arab peace plan, in which Israel abides by the 80 or so UN resolutions that it has ignored. or A one state solution where, quoting Nelson Mandela, "One man, One vote." (of course, women too). If they continue to refuse one man, one vote, then they are showing the world that they are not a democracy but an Apartheid theocracy. In which case, the citizens of the United States will clearly get a true picture of the country they are supporting. Absolutely no difference between Apartheid South Africa and Apartheid Israel. Just like Apartheid South Africa, they need to be isolated and sanctioned until they abide by international law.
Israel has only these two choices, either recognize Palestine under the internationally backed 1967 green line and allow the right of return, or lose Israel at the ballot box.
Now you see why it is so important for Israel to commit genocide on the Palestinian peoples and justify it. Check out these quotes from the mouths of Israel's leaders, some you might recognize.
"When we have settled the land, all the Arabs will be able to do about it will be to scurry around like drugged cockroaches in a bottle." Raphael Eitan, Chief of Staff of the Israeli Defence Forces, New York Times, 14 April 1983.
"How can we return the occupied territories? There is nobody to return them to. "Golda Meir, March 8, 1969.
"There was no such thing as Palestinians, they never existed." Golda Maier Israeli Prime Minister June 15, 1969.
"Between ourselves it must be clear that there is no room for both peoples together in this country. We shall not achieve our goal if the Arabs are in this small country. There is no other way than to transfer the Arabs from here to neighboring countries – all of them. Not one village, not one tribe should be left." Joseph Weitz, head of the Jewish Agency's Colonization Department in 1940. From "A Solution to the Refugee Problem" Joseph Weitz, Davar, September 29, 1967, cited in Uri Davis and Norton Mevinsky, eds., Documents from Israel, 1967-1973, p.21.
"…if people become accustomed to the large figure and we are actually obliged to accept the return of the refugees, we may find it difficult, when faced with hordes of claimants, to convince the world that not all of these formerly lived in Israeli territory. It would, in any event, seem desirable to minimize the numbers…than otherwise." Israeli official Arthur Lourie Ben Gurion also warned in 1948
"We must do everything to insure they (the Palestinians) never do return." Assuring his fellow Zionists that Palestinians will never come back to their homes, "The old will die and the young will forget."
Also Ben Gurion stated "The present map of Palestine was drawn by the British mandate. The Jewish people have another map which our youth and adults should strive to fulfill — From the Nile to the Euphrates."
Aba Eban (the Israeli Foreign Minister) stated arrogantly: " If the General Assembly were to vote by 121 votes to 1 in favor of "Israel" returning to the armistice lines– (pre June 1967 borders) Israel would refuse to comply with the decision." New York Times June 19, 1967.
Allon repeated his question, 'What is to be done with the Palestinian population; Ben-Gurion waved his hand in a gesture which said 'Drive them out!'?
"We have to kill all the Palestinians unless they are resigned to live here as slaves." Chairman Heilbrun of the Committee for the Re-election of General Shlomo Lahat, the mayor of Tel Aviv, October 1983.
"Israel should have exploited the repression of the demonstrations in China, when world attention focused on that country, to carry out mass expulsions among the Arabs of the territories." Benyamin Netanyahu, then Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister, former Prime Minister of Israel, tells students at Bar Ilan University, From the Israeli journal Hotam, November 24, 1989.
"The past leaders of our movement left us a clear message to keep Eretz Israel from the Sea to the River Jordan for future generations, for the mass aliya (=Jewish immigration), and for the Jewish people, all of whom will be gathered into this country." Former Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir.
Yitzhak Shamir, his dirty little terrorist soul, was absolutely correct in saying that the past leaders have left a clear message, from Eretz Israel to the Jordan River, and anyone who believes that Israel will ever settle for less are decieving themselves. In fact, most Israelis believe in the quote from David Ben-Gurion is more accurate. "The Jewish people have another map which our youth and adults should strive to fulfill — From the Nile to the Euphrates." Israel has had and continues to have desires for far more land than the country of Palestine. Of course, the United States, in their global ignorance, is providing the instability in the region to not only aid Israel in its quest to steal more land, but to create a diversion from the real problem, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
