Thereâ€™s really a very simple answer to the problem of so-called â€œillegal Jewish settlementsâ€ in Israel._And like the answers to previous conundrums that were presumed unsolvable, it has been staring us in the face for years.
The answer relies upon the same formula used by Winston Churchill and the British government when they first created Transjordan (Jordan) out of the mandated Jewish homeland in the early 1920s, thus turning Transjordan into a Muslim-only territory._ Itâ€™s worked for Jordan all these years, why wouldn't it be just as successful for Israel.
To make a long story short, all of Israel, that is to say all of the land remaining from the League of Nationsâ€™ original mandated Jewish homeland, should be Jewish._ From the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea; from Lebanon to the Sinai Desert; all 11,000 square miles of the land that remained of the intended Jewish homeland should be owned and/or controlled by Jews._ The only exceptions would be international embassies and Christian religious sites._ There should be no Arab settlements or enclaves, no Arab Gaza or Arab Jerusalem or Arab Bethlehem or Arab Hebron, and no Muslim religious sites._ The only exceptions might be for those individual Arabs currently residing within the aforementioned borders that swear allegiance and peaceful existence with and within an everlasting Jewish state._ If they can't or won't pledge themselves accordingly, out they go.
See that, itâ€™s a remarkably simple answer.
