The world needs to stop telling Israel what to do

A day hasn’t passed since the horrors of the Oct. 7 Hamas massacre of some 1,200 innocent Israelis, aided and abetted by hundreds of ordinary Gazans, without some politician or the other calling for an immediate ceasefire followed by a two-state solution to this latest attempt to destroy the Jewish state of Israel.

Israel pushed back stronger than ever on this foolishly naïve and patently suicidal suggestion Sunday when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that his government is proposing a declaration that “outright rejects” any attempts by foreign powers to create a Palestinian state.

“In light of the talk recently heard in the international community about an attempt to unilaterally impose a Palestinian state on Israel, I am bringing today a declarative decision on this issue for the approval of the government. I am sure it will be widely accepted,” Netanyahu told the cabinet in Hebrew.

Cabinet unanimously approved the declaration.

“Israel outright rejects international dictates regarding the permanent settlement with the Palestinians,” it said. “Such an arrangement will be reached only through direct negotiations between the parties, without preconditions. Israel will continue to oppose the unilateral recognition of a Palestinian state. Such a recognition, following the massacre of October 7, will reward the terrorism, a reward like no other, and will prevent any future peace settlement.”

The statement echoes what Netanyahu told U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken last week, namely that direct or even indirect recognition of a Palestinian state “would be a prize for those who planned and orchestrated the Oct. 7 massacre.”
