Netanyahu Pressured By The UN, US, EU To Accept A Palestinian State

Updated: Feb 7


TEL AVIV, ISRAEL - JANUARY 06: Protesters hold signs during a demonstration against the Israeli government and Israeli Prime Minister, BenJamin Netanyahu on January 6, 2024 in Tel Aviv, Israel. The Oct. 7 attacks, which prompted the creation of a unified "war cabinet," had provided a reprieve for Benjamin Netanyahu's tenuous hold on the prime ministership. That reprieve may prove short-lived, as more Israelis demand accountability from the government for the security failures represented by Hamas's invasion and its aftermath.

High-ranking diplomats from the U.N., U.S. and E.U. have recently ramped up the pressure on Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to get on board with the rest of the international community's proposed "two-state solution" to solve the Arab-Israeli conflict and bring lasting peace to the Middle East.


Mr. Netanyahu has long resisted the plan that calls for the creation of a Palestinian nation state bordering Israel. He is not about to cave in now, he insists, not after Hamas committed the terrorist attacks on October 7, 2023 that resulted in Israel declaring war against the Gaza-based, Iran-backed Palestinian militia.


The Christian community's is wholeheartedly paying attention to see what the results will be, not only in the Israel-Hamas war, but with the push for a Muslim-Jewish peace accord in the region.


Israel is at the center of end times prophesies including the "Great Tribulation" and "Daniel's 70 Weeks Prophecy." Whether or not international envoys are aware of those prophesies, or believe in them, is not known as of this writing.


The writing is on the wall for Mr. Netanyahu.


On Monday, there was a meeting held at EU headquarters in Brussels attended by some of the world's top diplomats including Israel's foreign minister and representatives from Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Palestine, plus the Secretary-General of the League of Arab States.


Mr. Borrell insisted that discussions at the meeting about the two-state solution are mandatory.


“We have to discuss even if they [Netanyahu's administration] disagree," he said before elaborating.


"What we want to do is to build a two-state solution, so let’s talk about it… So, from now on, I will not talk about the peace process, but about the two-state solution process. If we are serious about that, we have to study the underlying causes that prevent this solution from being implemented.”


Those causes, by implication, are Mr. Netanyahu who has faced immense pressure and protests from Israelis since he was re-elected to office in 2022.


There is a now a grassroots movement that is growing to the higher ranks, to hold elections for a new Prime Minister this year. There is also a wave of discontent with Netanyahu's alleged failure to, not only protect Israelis from the October Hamas attack, but now to bring home all of the hostages taken during said terrorist spree.


Mr. Borrell, a native Spanish language speaker, also had this to say, “the whole international community is behind it” [the two-state solution]. They [Netanyahu's administration] have to come here, and they will discuss with us, and we will study whatever solution they have in mind. Which are the other solutions they have in mind? To make all the Palestinians leave? To kill them?”.


He criticized Israel's war effort as impeding peace.


“Certainly, the way of trying to destroy Hamas is not the way they are doing, because they are seeding the hate for generations. We have in mind what Hamas is, what Hamas has done, and certainly we reject [it] and we condemn [it]. But peace and stability cannot be built only by military means, and not in this particular way of using military means.”


Mr. Netanyahu has also faced criticism from U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken who both seek the two-state solution.


Israel's Prime Minister has, so far, remained steadfast in his conviction that Israel must continue the war until "complete victory" is attained over the terrorist-designated group Hamas.
