In addition to the simple fact that Hamas was tagged in choices in Gaza and is known to win in the West Bank( and thus there are no choices there), Hamas deeply represents the broader Palestinian spirit that sees Jews, as a people, have no right to establish a free state within any border in the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea.
Writing in the Israeli review Makor Rishon, named” Let’s Break the Illusion Hamas Represents the Soul of All Palestinians,” Einat Wilf added,” Although Hamas may have only many knockouts of thousands of trained fighters, they all act out of the clear knowledge that they’re doing so to’ liberate Palestine.’
She added that the idea of’ liberating Palestine from the swash to the ocean’ is the foundational idea of Palestinian identity and is the broadest common denominator for all Palestinians. In this sense, there’s no difference between Hamas and Fatah or any other body. The difference lies in the means they believe will be most effective for’ liberating Palestine’, but not in the thing itself.
There’s no similar thing as a Hamas collapse’, and indeed if all the munitions and all coverts in Gaza were destroyed hereafter, a new association would be created under a different name, making sure that every bone or euro of’ recuperation’ plutocrat transferred to Gaza was used to rebuild a force whose thing would formerly again be’ the emancipation of Palestine’.
This is why Gaza is now adjoined and absorbed, because its residents don’t see Gaza as a home’, a motherland’ or an area that gives them a chance to establish a prosperous Palestinian state. On the negative, they see Gaza as a springboard from which they can’ recover’ Palestine, and in doing so invest their coffers, their people’s plutocrats, time, and bents.
What to do?
First of all, we must fete that this is the Palestinian spirit that defines Palestinian identity anywhere in the world, and also understand that this has nothing to do with what Israel is doing( no occupation, no agreements, no siege, these effects can be dealt with from the Israeli perspective, but they don’t change the Palestinian spirit).
Thus, only a radical change in the Palestinian spirit can bring about peace. The spirit of nations changes throughout history, but this is a long process that always involves considering the former spirit fully illegitimate and no longer suitable for the times.
The first is the need to move decisively to dry up all sources of political, profitable, and political support for the Palestinian spirit of’ the emancipation of Palestine’, starting with the Arab countries and continuing with the Western-backed United Nations relief agency that allows the Palestinians to save the 1948 war as an open cause in which they will one day, and ending with all the aid handed to the Palestinians without taking them to fete that the Jewish people have an equal right to tone- determination and their state in their motherland. major.
As a general rule, any political, profitable, and political backing handed to the Palestinians should be accompanied by the below clear condition and not be handed without it.
The alternate path is to change the Palestinian spirit, as the author says,’ We must understand that these neighbors of ours pray for our weakness, so that they can tear us piecemeal, and that for a stopgap to die in our doom, we must be armed.
