I cant see but Palestinian bantustans in the West Bank (sorry Historic Yesrael), and this is at the meantime before the zionists double the number of their settlers again.
In 1993, after 26 year of occupying the West Bank, the number of the settlers was only 120, 000 in scattered settlements. As the whole world was talking of peace the Zionists were faking a “peace” process of Oslo while hectically busy in doubling the number of settlers in only 7 years to be 250, 000 settlers in 1999 as Sharon stated it very clear :“Everybody has to move, run and grab as many hilltops as they can to enlarge the settlements because everything we take now will stay ours… Everything we don’t grab will go to them.” Ariel Sharon, Israeli Foreign Minister, addressing a meeting of militants from the extreme right-wing Tsomet Party, Agence France Presse, November 15, 1998.
Now, in 2009, the number is doubled again to more than 500,000 settlers in over 300 settlements systematically built and connected with Hiways system to prevent any possibility of establishing any kind of a Palestinian state but segregated bantustons. “Another settler, another dunam, another sheep” this is how the zionist project works to take the whole cake of Palestine at the time they are (managing the ongoing crisis) faking a kind of “peace process” to deceive the gullible!!
12 years ago, in 1997, I told my Iraqi jewish friend that I don’t believe that the Oslo Accord would lead to anything (of peace), and I explained to her by drawing that, at that time, the West Bank was divided into 5 parts (at least): Hebron area, then comes Gush Itzion settlements block that cuts Hebron off from Bethlehem as a separate pantoston, then the great Jerusalem that cuts the whole West Bank from the middle, then comes the Pantoston of Ramallah segregated by tens of surrounding settlements, then to the north there is Gush Ariel settlements block which also cuts off the West bank again into two parts starting from Qalqilia west up to Jericho.
The Northern part of the West bank is the biggest, which is composed of Nablus city (the biggest in the West Bank), Tulkarm city, and Jenin City. This area is also cut off with scattered small settlements but not that effective to prevent uniting these three cities, however, the three cities of the north are completely cut off each others by a “coherent” set of tens of permanent checkpoints and a number of overlooking strategic settlements.
That was in 1997 were the number of the settlers was less than 200,000… but now (as there are more than 500,000 settlers, and a system of over 300 settlements that controls the West Bank totally and coherently) the situation is so complicated that I cant see any hope for any kind of (”Palestinian State”) but tens of concentration camps!!
Jenin-stan (the capital of “terrorism”) is being modernized and this is not a success for one person of Dayton nor the United States Security Coordinators Team USSC which includes the Britishs, the Canadians and the Turks . It’s been three years being prepared to in coordination with the zionists (who were suspicious at first), the Jordanians, the PNA… and of course all (except the zionists) are lead by Mr. Dayton.
Jenin is the only area, along with parts of Nablus and Tulkarm, that might witness a kind of a Palestinian autonomy, that now it is cut off the world by the segregation wall from north and west, the Jordan Valley from the East and the fixed zionist checkpoints from the south. In this area, there are a few settlements like Maboa-Dothan, Rehan and other tiny ones and all are at the peripheries of the Jenin district…
The businessmen have their connection to the authorities (and they have their sixth sense following profit) and in a way, they know that the future Palestinian “State” (pantoston, autonomy, or whatever) will be in Jenin area… Is Mr. Dayton preparing that? As I know, “Historic yesrael” which is Samaria and Judea starting from Nablus Area (Yetzhar settlemet) up to Araad in the south, is already taken by the settlers and it would be next to impossible to establish but Palestinian bantustans there!!
It’s been almost a year now and the business is heading to Jenin… all kind of investment is being prepared to (actually done) there… businessmen from Hebron, Ramallah, Nablus, Jericho are roaming the area for buying real-estate, land-properties and other infrastructure for their business…. and even there are businessmen who buy only real-estate en masse or land-properties in all the area of Jenin!!
Other significant event is: consecutive and condensed visits done by the Jordanian intelligence agents (in coordination with the zionists of course) and meeting the prominent “families” in home visits (to revive the “the Jordanian option”? or to revive the feudal division of families? ) I dont know… but there are lots of things being done in Jenin area for something in “their minds” (لغاية في نفس يعقوب) and we are preparing to have our Democratic Republic State of JeninStan…. and for sure, the businessmen (including the corrupted PA “ministers”) are the first to know and to take “part of, if not all” the cake along with their zionist peers!!
And still talking of the “two states” solution, and freezing the settlements? The settlers are already taking all of the West Bank, except our “Great” JeninStan!!!
For me, the “one-state” solution is the only possible and human solution as we are already ten years beyond that two-state solution!!
Awaiting, probably, for the next intifada… there can never be “rule of law” under occupation, and who believes that he can control an occupied people is deluded and deluding… The PA and their CIA masters are just fooling themselves and buying time !!
