The new generation of dispossessed Palestinians is presented with very limited options that would allow for their awaited return, or even offer a manageable compromise. While this generation of (“active”) Palestinians (age group19-50) is still romanticizing with the fantasies and daydreams of complete liberation and the return to a land they only heard and read about, the Zionists respond with the imposition of concrete facts (literally). Maybe these daydreams were legitimate and reasonable in the previous era of the struggle, but under the current necessity for re-evaluation, the options for realizing the dream needs to be re-examined:
An all out War. An open “army against army” fight for the right of existence: may the real god chosen people win. Under the current situation, the balance of power is definitely not in favor of the Palestinians, and they will not come out victorious under this format, even if they were backed up with 3,000-5,000 angels. This (preferred) solution will have to wait, and maybe the current generation’s duty is to help set the stage for it.
A Guerilla War. An option made popular again after the Hizbollah victory, ignoring the fact that Palestinians were the pioneers of this tactic. Unfortunately, the previous experiences of 1970, 1982, and the Second Intifada have proved that this kind of fighting is usually sabotaged by elements indiscipline and factions rivalries. Also, it proved that even when it is at the peak of its success, it is ineffective in achieving on-the-ground gains or acquiring land. Under the current indifference of the international community, the Zionists will not hesitate in using excessive force that will overpower an unorganized or an under-armed such tactics.
Qualitative Operations. Whether it involves martyr-bombings, planes hijackings, targeted assassinations or any other modern or 70’s-style special operations, the time for such things has expired. What used to be borderline acceptable and was able to generate some attention and sympathy to the cause, is now considered straight out (Terrorism). The main and big-picture objectives of such operations cannot be realized nowadays.
An all out Peace. Whether the majority of Palestinians are with or against such a solution is irrelevant, since the Zionists are not willing to consider it in the first place. The Zionists hold all the cards, all the land and all the power. With the increasing unconcern of the international community and its lack of courage and initiative, the Zionists have no reason to offer any compromises. In addition, under the current power disparity, any solution that will try to be passed as peace will not meet the Palestinians aspirations, and will guarantee that the above subject group will remain in Diaspora.
The Solution: A complete maintenance and reform of the current overall situation that will generate a capable and qualified system, that is ready for war or peace options.
For this generation of Palestinians in
So let’s say you have a (self-declared) prince who is insignificant in, say area (A). He strikes a deal with country (B) to trade-in his father for his own farm. He hires fighting slaves from (C) to force the unwelcoming residents of the appointed (E) into submission and slavery. He then works with some (Z)’s to split and to expand his farm across (W) and enslave some more people. A very natural and expected scenario, within the lines of the imperialist plots and their need for local agents to manage the colonies at the lowest expenses. The laughable part is the ability of the petty dynasty, over 50 years of exploitation, wealth accumulation and shady regional roles, to rally the slaves (from all roots and origins) against each other, and convince them that the slave master is the only legitimate moderator and protector of their social cohesion! Recycled tired clichés serves a reverse role as a constant reminder that enforces a split in the efforts of the slaves, that will automatically dismantle any call of objection and or an attempt of change.
The true national unity is more obvious through what all Jordanians have in common:
-Living under continuously and rapidly deteriorating situation on every level. Basic living commodities of food and shelter (let alone health and education) are reaching critical scarcity levels for the majority.
-Witnessing the garage sale of the country in bulk and retail, from complete cities to basic assets, everything must go (to secret bank accounts).
(On the bright side the Head of the "Parliament", promised an anti-corruption law, or a sock in the mouth for every citizen, whichever his background deems more important).
-Anticipating and looking forward for a day to leave the plantation permanently, on the first possible chance, while investing in and doing whatever it takes to “achieve” so.
-Dealing with the situation
-Dealing with the situationwith apathy and complete satisfaction with minimal, instantaneous, and individual gains.
