Israel Actively Pushing Palestinians to Leave Gaza Strip

Palestine Chronicle | August 20, 2019

Israel is actively pushing Palestinians to leave the Gaza Strip, asking a number of European and Middle Eastern countries to absorb them and offering to arrange their flights if they agree to emigrate.

The policy was disclosed by a senior official accompanying Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on a diplomatic visit to Ukraine this week.

The unnamed official told reporters yesterday that Israel is in contact with third countries to see if they would be willing to absorb Palestinians from the besieged enclave, adding that:

“Israel is even willing to arrange transportation for them, at least to one of the airports in the Negev and arrange for them to travel out of the country”.

Israel’s National Security Council has been spearheading the initiative, with Netanyahu’s blessing, for about a year, the Times of Israel reported, citing the official.

The Israeli daily added that the program has also been discussed several times in Israel’s security cabinet.

The official conceded that, thus far, Israel has been unable to find any country willing to cooperate with its initiative, despite speaking to a number of Middle Eastern and European states.

He also claimed that thousands of Gazans are leaving of their own volition, pointing to 35,000 Palestinians who left the Strip in 2018. “That’s a pretty high number,” the official stated, even claiming that those who remain “are being held hostage in Gaza”.

The official, however, failed to mention Israel’s now 12-year-old siege of the Strip – which has devastated its infrastructure, economy, health sector and Palestinians’ livelihoods – or its three assaults on Gaza in the past decade. The UN has predicted that the Strip will be “unliveable” by 2020, calling the fate of Gaza’s some 1.9 million Palestinians into question.

Commentators have slammed the revelation, with Joint List Knesset Member (MK) Yousef Jabareen writing on Twitter: “The country that should welcome Palestinians from Gaza is Israel which, along with its obligation to remove the blockade on Gaza, should respect UN resolutions regarding Palestinian refugees as a part of a just and peaceful solution to the conflict.”

  1. Why am I not surprised? Gaza has some of the best land in Palestine. The Zios covet it, but naturally they don’t want it inhabited by a lot of grunting subhuman goyim. Hence the blockade, but the blockade is keeping them in, and besides, they seem to be taking a long time to starve to death. Shooting them for sport isn’t reducing their numbers on anything like the required scale. Can’t just nuke the place, that would leave the soil contaminated, and the fallout might be injurious to Jews elsewhere in occupied Palestine. So the Zios, ever inventive, have thought of this scheme. Don’t hold your breath.

  2. .The 2 state or 1 state solution finally culminates in the 0 state solution, Time for the UN to reconsider the 1948 decision. Who can believe that the US/Israel negotiating position was always a lie?.
    I am wondering if a worldwide IQ test would find the person who ever believed the position was ever 2 or 1.
