Palestinian "mine" on edge

Palestinian "mine" on edge Palestine, which is already one of the “hot spots” of the planet, can become the “bundle of brushwood” that will lead to the complete destabilization of the Middle East. The Palestinian National Authority (PNA) intends to seek recognition of independence, despite opposition from Israel and the United States.

Jerusalem, which is particularly actively supported in Washington, considers the claims of the PNA President Mahmoud Abbas to be “completely unfounded” and contrary to earlier UN agreements and resolutions.

In turn, the leadership of Palestine argues that the creation of a separate Arab state in Palestinian territory (including that occupied by Israel) is an integral part of international agreements and the time has come to put these plans into action. Palestinian Arabs were especially inspired by recent events in the Middle East and North Africa. In their desire for independence, Palestinian Arabs are supported by dozens of states, according to Abbas, over 150 countries. Palestine’s aspirations for independence are favorably voiced by leaders of such regional powers as Iran and Turkey.

But the main problem is that the United States has the right of veto in the UN Security Council, and Israel has all the capabilities to prevent the formation of a Palestinian state.

Jerusalem indicates a number of reasons why it is too early to talk about the creation of a Palestinian state. Thus, the West Bank and Gaza Strip are two separate territories (enclave), which are divided by the territory of the Jewish state. The Gaza Strip is controlled by supporters of the party and the Hamas movement (“Islamic Movement of Resistance”), this organization is recognized in a number of states as terrorist. The West Bank is controlled by Fatah ("Movement for the National Liberation of Palestine"). Both organizations are in a state of armed conflict between themselves. Each enclave has its own government. There are no authorities that would control the entire territory of Palestine.

Palestine is financially dependent on sponsors. Its annual budget in 3,7 billion dollars almost entirely consists of donations. Palestine is sponsored by Arab states, the USA, Japan and other countries. The United States threatens to suspend funding if Abbas insists, and this is a substantial amount - 400 million dollars. True, the Arab countries have already announced replenishment of damage - Saudi Arabia allocates an additional 200 million dollars, Kuwait - 50 million, etc.

In addition, Jerusalem does not want the emergence of a new neighbor-state hostile to it. The Palestinian Authority does not recognize Israel’s right to exist. Israel insists on the aggressiveness of the Palestinians, their organizations, who regularly bombard the territory of the Jewish state, are committing terrorist acts. The exact borders of the new state are not specified anywhere, so no one can give Israel security guarantees.

In turn, representatives of Arab states (now Turkey supports them) point to the fact that it is the Jewish state that is the main source of tension in the Middle East region. Israel has launched a series of wars against its Arab neighbors. And the injustice of Palestine only "creates additional aggressive aspirations of the Zionists."

As a result, the world community faces a problem that is almost impossible to solve with peace negotiations. If a Palestinian state is created, Israel will be “offended” if the PNA bid is denied, the threat of a new Palestine explosion will increase. A vicious circle that could lead to a new Arab-Israeli war.
