'59-state solution' workable in Middle East
One News Now (Link) - Chad Groening (May 20, 2009)
Major activists who support the Israel are organizing a grassroots effort to oppose attempts by the Obama administration to carve a Palestinian state out of Israel's covenant land.
Organizers say the purpose of the grassroots effort is to educate the world to the fact that the land of Israel has been connected to the Jewish people for more than three millennia, and no other people have a right to its land. In a news release, Jewish activists against a "two-state solution" also said that the Arabs are among those who invaded the land and have no legal rights to establish a sovereign nation within the borders of the land.
Rob Muchnick is the U.S. spokesman for Manhigut Yehudit, or The Jewish Leadership Movement, which is one of the groups taking part in the effort. He says there is already a 59-state solution.
"There's [sic] already 58 Muslim states and only one Jewish State. I think that's enough," he shares. "I think the two-state solution -- cutting up the one Jewish state into two pieces, making it militarily indefensible, and giving away our biblical heritage, our biblical heartland where 95 percent of our holy sites are -- is not the way to make peace."
Muchnick says the coalition of Jewish activists is calling on the Jewish people to oppose ceding any part of biblical Israel to any foreign nation.
