The Solution to the
Middle East Problem: The Full Dissolution of the "State
A Proposal by Neturei Karta International
The Root of the Problem
The Palestinians want back the land stolen from them by the "State
of Israel" in 1948, but this “State of Israel” will
never return it to them, having “received” it from the United
Nations! The creation of a "State of Israel" at
the expense of the Palestinians living there was a wrong
decision, a historic injustice that is unacceptable today
to increasing numbers of people.
This "State of Israel" must be dissolved quickly
and peacefully. The danger emanating from that region can
no longer be tolerated.
Neturei Karta International is proposing the following schedule:
Step 1: Dissolution: The "State of Israel" will
be dissolved through UN resolution. The UN decision of November
1947, calling for the partitioning of Palestine and the establishment
of the "State of Israel," will be recognized as
a mistake and reversed.
Step 2: Transfer of Power: The Palestinian people will take
full sovereignty over the whole country, including the territory
of today's "State of Israel." The transfer will
take place in the following manner: The UN will take power
in the country after the dissolution of the "State of
Israel," and will enter into negotiations with a provisional
Palestinian government, transferring the territory to them.
After the takeover, a permanent government will be formed
under the declaration of a new Palestinian state.
Step 3: Population policy: If the Palestinian government
agrees, the Jews already living there will be allowed to
remain with the status of immigrants under Palestinian sovereignty
in the country. Upon request, they may obtain full Palestinian
citizenship and equality, if that citizenship and equality
be granted by the Palestinian authorities. The UN and the
nations will prepare laws that would regulate such matters.
The procedure and the execution of the whole plan should
be as equitable, humane and painless as possible. A sufficiently
long time should be provided for the execution of the plan.
Step 4: Living together: The submitters of this proposal
hope to overcome, by the adoption and implementation of this
plan, the pent-up hatred and desire for revenge, which unfortunately
seem to be the only things Jews and Arabs have in common
under the current reality. Â We hope to see all people living
together again in excellent agreement and mutual respect,
as in all the years before the Zionist disaster.
This proposal may seem utopian, but it is the only real
and serious possibility for a peaceful solution to this otherwise
Let us consider five advantages, which will be effective
immediately after the implementation of this plan:
1. The threat to world peace will be substantially defused.
Middle East war, Intifada, Qassam rockets, Gaza War, Lebanon
War, Suez War, Six-Day War and more will be things of the
past. Israel's nuclear threat as well as Iran's "Israel-destruction
threat" will be meaningless. Large parts of the global
anti-terrorism campaign will be unnecessary, since terrorism
is largely caused and motivated by the existence of the "State
2. The oppression of the Palestinian people by the "State
of Israel" will be over. Their livelihood and human
dignity will be restored to them. The prison that is Gaza
will be opened. The Palestinians in the Middle East will
once again be able to breathe freely.
3. Anti-Semitism will decline sharply. Its current main
cause, the impudent and arrogant behavior of the Zionist
state against people and nations, as well as its atrocities
against its "Arab subjects," will come to an end
due to the dissolution of the Zionist state. Threats of rising
anti-Semitism around the world will occur less and less.
4. The astronomical sums which the U.S. and other countries
shell out annually for the support and arming of the "State
of Israel" can be used from now on for the execution
of this scheduled peace process.
5. The U.S. and other countries will be freed from the grips
of the "Zionist lobby." They will again be free
to make their own decisions without the consent and constraints
of this powerful lobby.
A Short Explanation of the True Jewish, Unadulterated
The land of Israel belongs to the Palestinians who have been
living there for centuries. The Jews were sent into exile
by God two thousand years ago, and they must remain in exile
until they are redeemed by God. The Zionist idea of a premature
termination of exile by human power, through politics, robbery
and intrigue, has always been opposed and rejected vehemently
by Torah-true Judaism.
The Holocaust and the Founding of the State
After the great destruction of the Jews in Europe, when the
Jews were uprooted and bleeding, they finally followed
the Zionists into the "promised land." Practically,
after the terrible Holocaust, they had no other choice.
The UN in 1947 "gave" part of Palestine to the
Zionists as a new home for the Jewish people, a laudable
idea. However, it was accomplished at the expense of the
Palestinians living there. The Zionists expelled them from
their homes and settled Israelis in their place. Thus the
UN's decision was a historic injustice.
The Turning Point
The world has begun to see that the Zionist "redemption" has
evaporated. The historic injustice of 1948 must be corrected,
and the Zionistic "Jewish state" must be completely
dissolved. The whole entity known as the "State of Israel" has
not the slightest to do with Judaism. Zionism is not
Judaism, and Judaism is not Zionism. The two concepts stand
in stark contradiction to each other. The Zionists are in
no way entitled to represent the Jewish people! No one has
ever given them this role; they have taken it on by themselves.
The People of Israel
The people of Israel has been, since time immemorial, the
people of God and nothing else. It is not "a people
like all peoples," whose existence is defined by political
power and borders. It received from God on Mount Sinai laws
and goals in life, which it has always followed faithfully.
That is, until about 100 years ago, when the great catastrophe
of the Zionist movement arose with the aim of "let us
be a nation like all nations!" Let us have nothing in
common with God, nothing to do with Sinai, they said. With
strength, together, we will solve our problems ourselves.
Let us have one country, one government, one army, one language,
and everything a nation needs here! And unfortunately, the
Zionist movement was successful.
But it is God who will never accept the "Zionist redemption." He
will force His people to return to the interrupted exile
and wait for the real, divine redemption.
This is perhaps our one last chance to do this on our own,
because if we do not do it ourselves, God Himself will do
it. There is no way around God's plan. Therefore, we must
have the insight to implement this solution by dissolving
Zionism and the "State of Israel."
The world, especially the UN, the U.S. and the EU, has a
duty, for it is they who have the power to carry out the
above proposed solution. The advantages of this plan, identified
above, certainly justify their taking it into consideration.
