So to understand the Palestinian situation and how we solve it, we need to discuss topics that people often choose to avoid or ignore because they seem to reflect a negative nonpeaceful narrative. But to achieve peace, we need to have an unfiltered picture of the Palestinian situation.
We have already discovered that the Palestinians, with the pressure of UNRWA, are kept refugees for multiple generations under an uncompromising Dictatorship. Now, not only are they being kept down, but they are not permitted to complain about it unless they point fingers at Israel.
If they do complain, they can be ostracized by the community if not jailed or even killed. And this starts from a young age when they get heavily brainwashed in UNRWA schools to hate Jews and destroy Israel.
If a Palestinian individual truly wakes up and sees who is really causing their suffering, there is no one to talk to. So there is no way to influence people in another direction. It is a vicious cycle from a young age, where you grow up with the same message, and any other ideas are not welcomed. So all people are being fed for the rest of their lives with a story that the Palestinians are an ancient indigenous population and that Jews are outside colonialists that took over the country that belonged to them. If you check the history in the fundamental section, you will see that it’s totally false. Yet, they keep pumping each other with hate and fear that comes from these stories. This is not the Palestinian’s fault; it is a system they have been put into and enforced by outside factors. Now when it comes to the Palestinian leadership, they are definitely not guilt-free, but they are also stuck. If tomorrow Mahmud Abbas the leader of the Palestinian leadership, decides to make peace with Israel, he risks opposition from his own population that was trained by his government to hate Israel. This could lead to him being pushed out if not killed. He also has to answer to the people above him, which we will discuss in the next article. To add to the trouble, he is also being challenged by Hamas, which can completely undermine his authority if he chooses to take on an unpopular stance. In fact, Hamas emerged because of the Fatah-Israel peace talks that were sustained for a while by Abbas.
Hamas leadership also does not have much choice to go in a specific direction because they are also being funded and given weapons by third parties that they need to answer to.
At the end of the day, both Abbas’ Fatah and Hamas are motivated by power and money, which does not motivate them to move fast in a peaceful direction.
The Palestinians are stuck in a vicious circle, and the only way to fix it is to remove all the outside obstacles.
The biggest negative influencers are Qatar and Iran, which offer tons of money and weapons to Hamas. When it comes to the Fatah/Palestinian Authority, There are funded by UNRWA, which is ultimately funded by western tax money towards the PA. Of course, they take a big portion and bank it in their own pocket, while another portion goes to the pay-for-slay fund. What is pay for slay, you ask? A 300 million-dollar-a-year program that awards families of suicide bombers and, of course, encourages more terrorism.
At this moment, Mahmoud Abbas, the leader of the Palestinian Authority, is worth about 100 million dollars, which is not bad. Still, it’s nothing compared to the leader of Hamas, Khaled Mashaal, which is worth about 2.6 billion dollars conservatively. To be clear, these are not business people, they are corrupt leaders that funneled UN money to their bank accounts that are funded by Western tax money.
So with that, let’s go to the next article to discuss the other big offenders.
