Is There Any Hope for Peace in the Mideast?

Service :
TEHRAN, May 28 (ICANA) - Since the official establishment of Israel in 1948, there were always legal disputes regarding the Palestinian territories and this continued up until 1967, when Israel occupied parts of Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, and Palestine in the Six-Day War.

Is There Any Hope for Peace in the Mideast?

In 1973, part of the Sinai Peninsula was liberated by the Egyptians, but other occupied territories still remain under the control of Israel and this has brought the Middle East to a serious impasse. On the one hand, Israel claims the lands as its own territory, but on the other, UN Security Council resolutions 242 and 338 say Israel must withdraw from the occupied territories.

Over the past forty years, many hoped for the intervention of powerful governments, such as the United States, Russia, and Britain, as trustees of the UN Charter. But the U.S. has done nothing, and it has also played the role of Israel’s lawyer. This is because of the huge influence of the Zionist lobby called the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, which has always supported Israel by providing every kind of political and financial incentive to U.S. officials. Thus, for at least 40 years, U.S. presidents have been taken hostage by AIPAC, and no one dared to stand against Israel and its extreme policies.

This excessive and broad support resulted in a new problem for the U.S., which was the conflict between Muslims and the West, and Israel was the main suspect in this regard. This has been the fundamental cause of all conflicts in the Middle East for the past 40 years.

All of this sparked a new series of extremist movements aligned against Israel and the U.S., and Al-Qaeda was in fact a product of this long process. After 9/11, the U.S. administration began to look for the motives behind the devastating attacks and many experts pointed to the unilateral U.S. policies in support of Israel. However, ignoring this main root cause, George W. Bush started the international campaign against terrorism and Osama bin Laden.

But Barack Obama came to office with a different outlook. He knew better than anyone that the only way to eradicate extremism and terrorism is to establish a just peace between Palestinians and Israelis.

Meanwhile, many other governments in the region have used the case of Palestine as a justification for oppressing their own people. If the U.S. wants to support the popular uprisings currently underway in the Middle East, it must take steps to resolve the Palestine issue.

Obama is the only president who came to office without any help from the Israeli lobby. Therefore, he has the courage and bravery to stand up to Israel.

If the Arab leaders of the Middle East intend to criticize Obama, they will be doing a great favor for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his extremist government. But if they support him, it will be a clear warning to Israel that it has no other way forward.

No one knows whether returning to the 1967 borders, as proposed by the U.S. president, can resolve the conflict or not. This may take several years or even a decade, but finally a U.S. president came to the same conclusion as the people of the Middle East and other parts of the world. (MNA)
