The point of no return
Half a million Jews beyond Green Line make West Bank’s evacuation impossible
Half a million people. Half a million Jewish Israelis are living beyond
the Green Line, the Israel-Jordan border prior to1967. A total of
200,000 reside in areas defined by Israel as part of the greater
Jerusalem and annexed. Another 300,000 live in the rest of Judea and
Samaria (or the West Bank.)
The evacuation of 8,000 Jewish settlers from the Gaza Strip and their
absorption in Israel cost taxpayers NIS 10 billion. Those interested in
turning back time and evacuating Israelis from the areas beyond the 1967
borders would have to invest NIS 600 billion for that end. An unreal figure.
Without the Palestinians grasping the process, and without most of
Israeli citizens giving it some thought, the areas beyond the 1967
borders have become the main absorption area for new Israeli citizens:
New immigrants from the former Soviet Union, young Jerusalemites,
haredim facing economic distress, etc. The “territories” served as
Israel’s territorial backbone, and played this role with great success.
Half a million Jews beyond the Green Line constitute the point of no
return. The talk about a “construction freeze” or “construction
suspicion” at certain settlements are a joke and an insurance policy for
the leaders – in Israel, in Palestine, and in the world – who know deep
in their hearts that the decision had been made.
What we have here is two peoples that cannot be divided: A mixture of
Jews and Palestinians that cannot be separated. It’s too late.
