Click to view the Purim message by Rabbi Benny Elon - Do not imagine you'll be safe in the King's Palace
The Unity Coalition for Israel has strategically aligned with Rabbi Binyamin Elon and The Israeli Initiative, which he founded. We urge our readers and activists to study this viable alternative to the widely accepted Saudi-US "Two-State Solution" (see image left). This 2-state "solution" is not an option for Israel. It will divide the country and leave it militarily indefensible and ultimately lead to the demise of the state.
UCI is advocating this workable alternative. It's called The Israeli Initiative - and it protects the Palestinian Arab refugees, thereby enhancing the security of Israel. It puts the burden of responsibility squarely on the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), mandated to effectively rehabilitate all other refugees worldwide. They have been very successful thus far.
By contrast, UNRWA, United Nations Relief and Works Agency, is an agency that was created solely for the purpose of maintaining the Palestinian Arab refugees resulting from the 1948 war. The agency is forbidden to resettle them. They are committed instead to maintaining their "refugee" status.
Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq created the Palestinian Arab refugee problem when they invaded Israel in 1948. The Jewish refugees expelled from Arab countries far outnumbered the Arabs who fled Israel. Israel readily absorbed the Jewish refugees while the Arab refugees were rejected by the Arab world.
The Unity Coalition for Israel calls upon these nations to participate in the resettlement of the Palestinian Arab refugees. We sympathize with today's Palestinian's and call these five nations to account with the expectation that after 60 years, they will finally assume responsibility for the well-being of their Arab brethren confined to refugee camps. Today, the Arab nations contribute a mere 2% of the UNRWA expenses while the United States contributes 25%.
Unity Coalition for Israel has the pulse of Americans who, through the Congress in 2007, expressed their heart for Israel and all the refugees created in 1948. US Senate Resolution 85 and US House Resolution 185 passed unanimously in 2007. They conveyed the sense of the Congress. The concurrent resolutions demand equal treatment for all Arab, Jewish and Christian refugees displaced by the Arab invasion of the new state of Israel in 1948. In contrast, UNRWA exists solely to perpetuate the Arab Palestinian refugee status and defies this equal treatment principle. Our present government must be mindful of the clear United States precedent.
UNRWA is asking for $567 million dollars a year to perpetuate the Palestinian refugee problem. $137 million dollars is to be extracted from US taxpayers. UNRWA, with its 28,000 employees maintains a cycle of poverty and incitement to hate. The UN must relinquish control, dissolve UNRWA and transfer the resettlement of refugees to the UNHCR agency. 60 years of holding the Palestinian Arabs hostage to the political agenda of the Arab League is reprehensible.
The root of the problem is the Palestinian leadership's refusal to acknowledge the very existence of the state of Israel. Holocaust denial and threats of nuclear genocide must be loudly condemned by world leaders.
In spite of constant terrorism and world condemnation for defending themselves - Israel has produced a compassionate response: The Israeli Initiative. It is a viable answer to the Palestinian - Israeli conflict. This plan offers solid hope for advancing the Middle East into the 21st century.
Please study The Israeli Initiative... and watch for our Urgent Action Alerts and direction in this regard.
Principles of the Israeli Initiative
1. Rehabilitation of the refugees and dismantling of the camps
Israel, the US, and the international community will formulate a multi-year program for full and rapid rehabilitation of the Palestinian refugees, while absorbing them as citizens in various countries. During the rehabilitation process, UNRWA, an organization that perpetuates the status of the refugees, will be dismantled, and all residents of refugee camps will be offered permanent places of residence, citizenship, and a generous rehabilitation grant. The refugee camps will also be dismantled following this process.
2. Strategic cooperation with the Kingdom of Jordan
Israel, the US, and the international community will recognize the Kingdom of Jordan as the sole legitimate representative of the Palestinians, and Jordan will again grant citizenship status to the residents of Judea and Samaria. The Palestinian Authority in Judea, Samaria and Gaza will no longer be recognized as a representative body, and all weapons will be collected from armed organizations.
Israel, the US, and the international community will invest in the long-term development of the Kingdom of Jordan to restore and strengthen its economy.
Israel and Jordan, together with Egypt, Turkey, and the US, will create a strategic organization to halt the Islamic axis based in Teheran, and to promote overall peace between Israel and the Arab countries.
3. Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria
In coordination with Jordan, Israel will extend its sovereignty over Judea and Samaria. Arab residents of these areas will become citizens of Jordan (Palestine). Their status, their relationship to the two countries, and the nature of the administration in the populated areas will be formulated and set forth in an agreement between the governments of Israel and Jordan.
