The Palestinians Agree to recognize Israel as a Jewise State in exchange for pre-1967 borders with foreign troops providing “security guarantees” for both states.
Not! . . . . . Yet!!
By focusing on recognition of the SOI as a Jewish state as the “key” core issue of negotiations, much more fundamental security needs get lost in the mix. Thus, the SOI is setting itself up to get blindsided by a unilateral declaration of a State combined with a deceitfully vague and ambiguous “acceptance” of the SOI as a Jewish State.
What is the SOI going to say then?
Bottom line, a Jewish nation based on cultural, ethnic, and racial Jewishness is “form over substance.” I love the Jewish people, but lets be honest – any claim of right to the land is based in the Torah; if the Torah is disregarded as the foundation point for Jewish self-government in Israel (at least an express reference to it in official policy and statements), there’s nothing real to stand on – except the UN/Nations’ good (or bad) will.
It is what it is. Really, its time for each person to ask HaShem for guidance how to navigate and survive the birth pangs of Moshiach. And, always, to pray that Moshiach ben Yosef does not die.
