“Jordan and Egypt should take over Palestine” says ex US UN ambassador Bolton – Egypt rejects Israeli-American 3 state solution

WASHINGTON: Former acting US ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton said Monday that settling the Arab-Israeli conflict on the basis of a two-state solution was no longer workable and suggested splitting Palestine between Egypt and Jordan. “Let’s start by recognizing that trying to create a Palestinian Authority from the old PLO [Palestine Liberation Organization] has failed and that any two-state solution based on the PA is stillborn,” Bolton wrote in The Washington Post. “Hamas has killed the idea, and even the Holy Land is good for only one resurrection.”

Hamas won parliamentary elections deemed fair by international observers in 2006 but was boycotted by the West for refusing to give up armed resistance against Israeli occupation.

A two-state solution has been officially adopted as the basis for solving the Middle East conflict by all interested parties, including Israel and the administration of US President George W. Bush, in which Bolton has served. But he now argues that the peace process is “obviously not progressing … probably going backward.”

“Instead, we should look to a ‘three-state’ approach, where Gaza is returned to Egyptian control and the West Bank in some configuration reverts to Jordanian sovereignty,” says the former ambassador, who now works for the American Enterprise Institute, a hard-line pro-Israeli think-tank in Washington.

“Having the two Arab states re-extend their prior political authority is an authentic way to extend the zone of peace and, more important, build on governments that are providing peace and stability in their own countries,” he wrote. – AFP, with The Daily Star

Egypt rejects Israeli-American 3 state solution

A three-state-solution for the Palestinian-Israeli conflict may be edging out the two-state solution promoted in the road map peace plan, which the U.S. and Israel say is no longer viable, according to U.S. and Egyptian officials.

Former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations wrote in a Washington Post article Monday that the conflict would be resolved through a solution that excludes a Palestinian state.

The three-state-solution aims to transfer Gaza to Egypt and the West Bank to Jordan

The so-called three-state-solution proposes transferring control of Gaza to Egypt and the West Bank to Jordan while Israel maintains control over Ramallah and Nablus. The plan proposed by the U.S. is backed by Israel as an alternative to the road maps’ two-state solution.


“Without a larger Egyptian role, Gaza will not, and perhaps cannot, achieve the minimal stability necessary for economic development,” the conservative wrote in the Washington Post as the Israeli military tightened its deadly grip on the territory.

“The logic to this position [of the two-state solution] is long past its expiration date. Instead, we should look to a “three-state” approach, where Gaza is returned to Egyptian control and the West Bank in some configuration reverts to Jordanian sovereignty,” Bolton wrote in the article.

Egyptian analysts saw it coming
” Israel wants to wash its hands of the Palestinian problem it created by tossing Gaza and exporting its problems to Egypt and the West Bank to Jordan. ”
Beshir Abdel Latif, political analyst

Israeli’s undeterred assault on the Gaza Strip is part of the Jewish state’s strategic plan to prevent the emergence of a sovereign Palestinian state by forcing Egypt to assume control of the embattled Hamas-run enclave, according to Beshir Abdel Latif, senior editor of Democratiya magazine and political analyst at the Ahram Center in Egypt.

“The creation of a symbolic “Palestinian state” that does not surpass a few villages or towns and has no real sovereignty over its land, air or resources is the façade Israel wants to create,” he told AlArabiya.net on Tuesday.

Abdel Latif went on to say that the alternative three-state-solution ensures the continuous geographic disunity of Palestinian lands.

“Israel wants to wash its hands of the Palestinian problem it created by tossing Gaza and exporting its problems to Egypt and the West Bank to Jordan,” he said.

Such a plan is not new, however, according to one Egyptian diplomat, who said such a plan has been in place for decades.

“Making Egypt, and particularly the Sinai Peninsula, the alternate home to Gazans is an alternative Israel has been suggesting in recent diplomatic talks,” Dr. Abdulaah Mishaal told AlArabiya.net.

“The alternative enables Israel to shrug off its responsibility of the impoverished enclave,” which Isaac Rabin famously wished the sea would swallow up, he said.

A so-called Palestinian state would then consist of Ramallah, Nablus and other small towns which have no real sovereignty but are effectively controlled by Israel would make up the so called Palestinian state

As if to back up Egypt’s fears, Bolton wrote that the three-state-solution is the only recourse if peace in the region is the goal.

“Having the two Arab states re-extend their prior political authority is an authentic way to extend the zone of peace and, more important, build on governments that are providing peace and stability in their own countries,” he wrote.

Egypt’s official response
” Egypt will not fall into this Israeli trap. Egypt rejects this plan. ”
Hosni Mubarak, Egyptian President

In a national address, Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak, blamed by many for failing to completely open the Rafah border crossing into Gaza, indicated that Egypt’s decision to keep the border closed is a strategic move to fend off Israel’s attempt to toss Gaza to Egypt.

“Egypt will not fall into this Israeli trap. Egypt rejects this plan,” Mubarak said at the start of the Jewish state’s 10-day-old offensive on the Mediterranean coastal strip of 1.5 million Palestinians.

Taking on Gaza would also mean selling out the cause of Palestinian state, said Egyptian General Gamal Mazlum, head of Center for Arms Forces Studies.

“It is hard to grasp perhaps for the average citizen who only looks at Gaza massacre from a humanitarian angle. But what is behind Israel’s constant raiding and blockading of Gaza? We don’t need to guess as John Bolton already said it,” he told AlArabiya.net.

Mazlum added that Egyptian forces were well aware of Israel’s long-term aims and would not allow Israel “to transform the ongoing Israeli-Arab conflict into an Arab-Arab conflict between stateless Palestinians and Egyptian citizens and Jordanian citizens.”

This is the master plan!
That Bolton is a zionist is well-known.
Every day is a proof of that Israel never wants a Palestine!

Never trust USA and ISRAEL!

  1. there will really only be a one state solution. either palestine, as it has been for centuries, or the new “israel”. when a people colonialize a new land, something has to give. either the colonialists eventually leave (GB in india, france in vietnam, etc) or the colonialists displace and kill enough of the natives that theres no resistance (as the whites did to the native americans). israel is a colonial state made of transplants from the past 100 years.

    • Hmm… there is something in what you say. History can tell us about the future. We all know for fact that the ideology/doctrine behind the israeli “creating fact” scheme in the West Bank has this as purpose, to appropriate it.

      So do you then believe that the one state solution would be like USA? The white kill all the natives and then “import” other ethnicity? With other words, there would be no palestinans left if Israel is to roam freely accordingly to that scheme… Only in some reservoirs. Maybe with a casino to serve their masters…
