The only realistic solution is a population transfer of the Arab-Palestinians

By YJ Draiman

Israel must be steadfast in protecting its people and their rights.

Many nations and people continue to question Israel’s control of its Ancestral, and internationally guaranteed liberated territory. (See: the Faisal Weitzman agreement of 1919)

It seems too convenient no one is mentioning the historical fact Arab countries had terrorized and expelled about a million Jewish families and their children from their countries.

Moreover, it seems forgotten the Arabs illegally confiscated all Jewish assets, businesses, homes and over 120,000 sq. km of Real estate property. (Hitler would have been proud).


Like the American Indian “Trail Of Tears”, many of the Jews terrorized and forcefully ejected from Arab countries died due to hardship, famine and starvation during their effort to get to Israel. More importantly, it cannot be ignored many of the expelled Jewish families had lived in the Arab countries for over 2,500 years. Longer in fact than the very Arabs who were expelling them. Most of the expelled Jewish people, their children, and families were resettled in Greater Israel and today account for over half the population of Israel.

The Homes and Land the Arab countries confiscated from the Jewish people totaled approximately 120,440 sq. km., or 75,000 sq. miles; which is over 6 times the size of Israel. The value of the confiscated Jewish assets, land and homes today would be worth trillions of dollars.

During the 2,600 plus years the Jewish people and their children lived in Arab countries they suffered Pogroms, Libel claims, beatings, beheadings, false imprisonment and extreme hardship as second class citizens. Jews had their businesses, homes, and houses of worship pillaged and burned. Their wives and daughters were raped, Arabs sold them as slaves, and Jews were forced to either convert to Islam or be murdered. This trend of terrorizing Jews by the Muslims, goes all the way back to the Jews in the Jewish city of Medina (today Saudi Arabia) in 627 CE after the Muslim religion was first created by Muhammed and the city was taken over by the Muslims as their second holiest city.

The Arabs received over 5 million square miles of territory after WWI, which contained a tremendous resource of oil reserves. History proves Israel territory extended all the way up to Iraq, which would make the land and all those oil reserves belonging to the Jewish people. Yet, Arab nations are no longer satisfied with the gift of land and oil to which they never had legal claim. Now, Arab nation are demanding more land and more compensation.

Furthermore, the Arab countries are not satisfied with having once terrorized and chased away the million Jewish families and their children. Now, the Arab countries want to chase the Jews away from their own ancestral and historical land. (You have murdered them and now you expect to inherit their assets).

Israel must respond with extreme force to any and all violent demonstration and terror. Israel’s population is entitled to, and must have peace and tranquility without intimidation by anyone, at any cost.

The Jewish people have suffered enough in the Diaspora for over the past 2,400 years. It is time for the Jewish people to live as free people in their own land without terror and violence.

It is long overdue and about time to consider and realize that the only realistic solution for a peaceful coexistence in Israel is a population transfer of the Arab-Palestinians. It is time to transfer said “Arab-Palestinians” to the territories the Arab nations confiscated from the Jewish people. Also considered to receive said “Arab-Palestinians” should be Jordan which originally was Jewish territory and illegally given 78% of the 120,000 sq. km. Jewish territory to the Arabs as a new state.

It is time, nay, past time to settle this dispute once and for all. Instead of utilizing all the financial aid and resources for conflict and terror, the financial aid and resources must be used for relocation, housing and new industry. In so doing, the “Arab-Palestinians” will realize a boost in their standard of living and be able to finally stabilize their lives, thus benefiting the host countries as well. Many Arab leaders have suggested these solutions for many years.

  1. As I have pointed out in earlier posts when this proposal was raised, Israel does not have the power to implement the transfer “solution.” The Arab states will not accept the expelled Palestinians. They want them right where they are, fighting Israel and maintaining the Arab claim to the land. No other country would agree to accept transferred Arabs either, because the United Nations Security Council and the criminal tribunals established by it have declared population transfers to be “ethnic cleansing” and “genocide.” The Arab states and Iran would also take reprisals, including possible sponsorship of terror attacks, on any country that accepted Palestinian Arabs expelled by Israel.

    That’s what an ultra-orthodox liberal at a seder in NY said to me. When I replied, “So what?” He screamed at me that Jews don’t kill. I replied, “Oh, yeah? Read the Torah, lately?”

  3. @ adamdalgliesh:
    I think it is a reasonable compromise. If they refuse, I think this common sense advice in Deuteronomy 20 is also reasonable.

    “10 When you march up to attack a city, make its people an offer of peace. 11 If they accept and open their gates, all the people in it shall be subject to forced labor and shall work for you. 12 If they refuse to make peace and they engage you in battle, lay siege to that city. 13 When the Lord your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the men in it. 14 As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves. And you may use the plunder the Lord your God gives you from your enemies. 15 This is how you are to treat all the cities that are at a distance from you and do not belong to the nations nearby.

    16 However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes…”

    I am a fervent believer in the democratic right to self-determination. Let the Pals and their friends choose between the two ultimate alternative, i.e., final solutions, I say.

  4. It may be a solution, but it is not realistic, and it certainly is not “co-existence”.

    New Paradigm for long term peace and stability for Israel

    If you want peace it is time to forget being politically correct and proportional in fighting Palestinian terrorism. It is time to be determined to win the conflict decisvely and not just say the conflict will continue forever. It is not acceptable that every few months or years that Palestinians shoot rockets at Israelis, blow up bombs, kidnap children or resort to other forms of violence against Jews in Israel.

    Two states in the Land of Israel west of the River Jordan is a formula for war not peace. The Palestinian (Arabs) have for 100 years not accepted the permanent presence of the Jews.

    Israel has a legal, historical and moral right to the land of Israel west of the Jordan River.

    1. However, except for a small amount of people on the right Israelis do not want to incorporate large amounts of Arabs into Israel. The public does not want a bi-national state.

    2. To be able to buy Arabs properties and facilitate their peaceful emigration (buying them out) the terrorists must be jailed, deported or killed otherwise they will exact revenge on the families of those leaving or those leaving before they actually leave. They have a death sentence for selling properties to Jews.

    Once you accomplish number 2 above an NGO working with the government should start enacting an humane assisted program of Arab emigration starting with East Jerusalem and Arab villages in Area C near Jewish Towns. Learn as you go and what problems come up. This will be fraught with problems imagined and not imagined. Just like a franchiser learns by first working on a few locations before expanding widely.

    Annex Area C. Help the Arabs there emigrate.
    Register the people there. Ask do you want to stay and demonstrate loyalty to the Jewish Democratic State of Israel.
    This will require learning Hebrew; your children will be required to provide civil national service at age 18 to 20.

    You will be required to inform on anyone planning terrorist acts including family members. This will be a condition of residency!
    If after 10 years of residency they wish to apply for citizenship they may. There then will be at least a two year period to investigate if they have successfully fulfilled the requirements of residency prior to bestowing citizenship. If they and their immediate family have met the conditions citizenship can be bestowed upon them.

    Once Israel has successfully integrated Area C it can then work on Areas A and B. Unless you can be sure you know how to successfully help Arabs emigrate overseas and integrate others why would anyone in their right mind make the approximately 1,500,000 Arabs (of Area A/B in Judah & Samaria) Israeli residents yet alone citizens. This is a terrorist’s dream, to be able to freely travel all over Israel with an Israeli ID card.

    Walk before you run and go step by step in this super risky proposition of incorporating a massive amount of Arabs into the State of Israel. If you can be highly confident that you can help large amounts of Arabs emigrate then you could start annexing parts of Area A (a City at at a time). Israel should NOT bring an Arab Trojan Horse into Zion. If you can NOT make sure a large amount of Arabs will emigrate, not do annex these areas and make these people residents

  6. My point is not that this is a bad idea in principle, but simply that it is not doable in the foreseeable future, because neither the Jordanians nor any other country will cooperate with it. And if israel tries to implement it unilaterally, the entire “international community, including the USA, will come down on Israel like a ton of bricks. I believe in being realistic,@ Sebastien Zorn:
