In the first week of this month, Netanyahu called to bring an end to his government, three years before it officially ends. Early elections became a normal practice for Prime Minister Netanyahu in his three terms to keep hijacking peace in The Holy Land.
Latest opinion poll showed that however, two thirds of Israelis don’t want Netanyahu, yet according to the same poll it is expected that he is most likely to be the next prime minister.
This explains how the Israeli society suffers leadership crises. It is all because of the brain wash to which this Israeli society has been exposed to by the right wing propaganda to thwart the peace process which began in 1993. this propaganda costs former prime minister, Rabin his life in 1995 at the hands of a Jewish extremist.
Israel, since Oslo waged two wars against Lebanon two wars against the West Bank and 4 wars against Gaza. The code word for these wars was alleged Security, while in fact all these wars were elections motivated to benefiting from the Israelis obsession with security. Shimon Peres regardless of how visionary he is , had never won any elections. While, Sharon however, was sacked from his ministerial post due to his war crimes in 1982, yet he later was elected to become the most popular prime minister in Israel because he excels at war times more than at peace.
In 1988, the Palestinians have made an unprecedented concession when recognized the right of Israel to exist on 78% of their historic land. All Arab and Muslim countries endorsed an initiative in 2002 calling to normalize relationship with Israel in return for the land Israel took by force in 1967.
In response to all these good gestures, Israel, decided to continue with its military occupation of the state of Palestine, (West bank including East Jerusalem and the Gaza strip).
Israel as well as the whole world knows that this occupation is contrary to the UN Charter. This Israeli defiance of the International legitimacy coupled with the Israeli creation of new facts to Judaize Jerusalem, the third holiest place for all Muslims and to ethnically cleanse its indigenous Palestinian residents are becoming a recipe for hatred, anger and radicalism (AL Qaeda and ISIS) in the region and beyond.
John Kerry, the US secretary, who said that a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians would help the campaign to defeat the jihadists of ISIS, has acknowledged this fact. In 2010 former president Clinton has also acknowledged it.
In November 2012, the UN .Organization, Voted favourably for the upgrade of Palestine to a non-member state. This vote is no doubt a victory to the UN and its charter but more important for the children of the Holy Land; Jews, Christians and Muslims.
Judicially, Israel should be the first state to recognize the state of Palestine because Israel´s acceptance as member state of the UN in 1949 was conditioned by the creation of the state of Palestine
Israel is the only country, which has no internationally recognized border or Capital. Israel, accordingly, becomes normal country only when the state of Palestine is realized. Full recognition of the state of Palestine is an obligation for all those who endorse the two states solution.
President Obama in his last visit to Israel told Netanyahu that Israel´s security is only attainable by peace.
In this context, it is expected that the EU, the true guardian of human values, to take brave and responsible gestures such as done by Sweden.
The full recognition of the state of Palestine is the only effectual tool to forcing Israel to end its illegal 47 years of military occupation, to realize the two states solution.
Because twenty years of vain negotiations and the lack of action by the International community, all encouraged Israel to conduct it war crimes with impunity as if it is an above the international law country.
