1 1 The Engagement The problem in the Holy land, its roots and solution Who are the Palestinians? Who are the Palestinians? How many Palestinians live west of the Jordan? How many Palestinians live west of the Jordan? Who are the refugees? Who are the refugees? Compromises and disengagements complicate the situation – a change in direction is needed Compromises and disengagements complicate the situation – a change in direction is needed "You cannot solve a problem with the same consciousness that created it” – Albert Einstein "You cannot solve a problem with the same consciousness that created it” – Albert Einstein The origin and numbers of the Palestinians negates separation and the two states solution The origin and numbers of the Palestinians negates separation and the two states solution "Yes” to engagement and to one state solution "Yes” to engagement and to one state solution

4 4 Is there a way out of the present fix? Yes! But one must first understand the roots of the problem!

5 5 A series of genetic research indicate a very close relationship between Palestinians and Jews!!! The following recognized and discussed Palestinians’ Israelite roots: German researchers (1860) Israel Belkind (1894) Lev Borochov (1905) David Ben-Gurion (1917, 1956) Yitzhak Ben-Zvi ( ) The Roots of the Problem

6 6 Conclusions of primary Leaders of Zionism Conclusions of primary Leaders of Zionism Belkind: The Arabs of Eretz-Israelare blood brothers of the Jews Belkind: The Arabs of Eretz-Israel are blood brothers of the Jews Borochov: The Arab peasantry (Fellahin) of Eretz- Israel are offspring of the remnants of Hebrew farmers in antiquity. Borochov: The Arab peasantry (Fellahin) of Eretz- Israel are offspring of the remnants of Hebrew farmers in antiquity. Ben-Gurion: The majority of the peasantry and their offspring in Eretz-Israel … undoubtedly have a lot of Jewish blood in their veins, [from] those simple Jewish farming folk who chose due to hard times chose to deny their religion to prevent being uprooted from their soil.

12 12 Historio-Geographic Research Differentiations between two parts of the Holy Land: mountainous regions & lowlands The Holy Land as a ‘land bridge’ – major crossroad Exposed to frequent penetration from beyond the borders Most penetration concentrated in the coastal region Population exchange in the coastal region

13 13 The Geographic-Demographic Dimension Differentiation between two types of movement of peoples: Differentiation between two types of movement of peoples: The movement of colonizing peoples vs. imperialistic peoples Settlement movements – popular settlement – colonization Settlement movements – popular settlement – colonization Imperialist movements – regime change, not population changes Imperialist movements – regime change, not population changes

14 14 The Israelite Settlement in the mountain Country (~1200 BCE) Only the Canaanites, the Philistines and the Israelites were colonizing peoples. Only the Israelites settled in the mountainous regions. Canaanites and Philistines settled only in the lowlands. All other peoples: Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Crusaders, Turks and British – were movements of imperialistic peoples.

15 15 Settlement in Eretz-Israel on the Eve of Zionist Settlement (1860 CE) In the Muslim Period (from the 7th to the 19th Century) primarily the lowlands were depopulated. The population that survived was primarily in the mountain regions. As a result: The first Zionists encountered a country that was largely a wasteland in the lowlands compared to populated areas in the mountainous regions. The conclusion: Most of the longtime population (75%) is in the mountainous regions and is of Israelite descent.

16 16 Settlement in the Holy Land in Modern Times Movement of people in the 19th & 20th centuries was primarily in the lowlands. Parallel to Zionist settlement, there was influx of foreigners from Arab countries. The violent confrontation between the sides was primarily in the lowlands. The inhabitants of the mountain regions were for the most part ‘outside the arena’. Result: Most foreigners fled from the lowlands & created the refugee problem. The Palestinian population that remained in the Holy Land was for the most part Descendents of the People of Israel (65%-85%) mainly dwellers of the mountainous regions.

28 28 Physicist David Bohm: Physicist David Bohm: “ The notion that all these fragments are separately existent is evidently an illusion, and this illusion cannot do other than lead to endless conflict and confusion. Indeed, the attempt to live according to the notion that the fragments are really separate is, in essence, what has led to the growing series of extremely urgent crises that is confronting us today. ”
