Op-ED: Israel, the Apartheid State of 21st Century

*By: Joanna Zaliki

The so-called democratic government of Israel has two systems of education and two different curricula in its present day Apartheid system of Education.

One set of schools is for the Israeli Jewish children and the other for the Israeli Arabs. The Israeli Arab population is actually the Indigenous population of Israel, but they are treated as outsiders and they are taught that they came from another region and should not even be on this land.

The funding for the so called Arab Schools is at least 50% LESS than that for the Jewish Schools, but that is not all!

The Curriculum and Identity Report, (May 2011) researched by a group of academics and published by the Arab Cultural Association, examined the contents of textbooks approved by the Ministry of Education as well as the Curricula for various Subjects in Arab schools, and found an unbelievable number of mistakes, distortions, and lies with regard to the Arabic language and the history of the area.

Israel is violating a number of Human Rights with regard to the Arab children living in Israel:

These violations are under two categories. In the first case Israel is contravening rights according to The United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Article 33, because the Arabs are the indigenous population of Israel. In the second case Israel is contravening rights according to The Declaration of the Rights of Persons Belonging to National or Ethnic, Religious and Linguistic Minorities, Article 27, because the Arabs are a minority in Israel, making up 20% of the total Israeli population.

In the Israeli Apartheid System of Education, Arab Palestinian children, who are citizens of the State of Israel are being denied their right to learn their mother tongue correctly, to know and identify with their Arab culture, history and heritage.

The first violation concerns the children’s right to learn their mother tongue the Arabic language. Thirty-one textbooks for use in Grades three to eight, which were all approved by the Ministry of Education for use in Arab schools, were found to contain more than 16000 mistakes. This means that Arab children are taught their language inadequately. Is this a way to sabotage the Arabic language and therefore the identity of Arab children?

The second violation of rights concerns access to the Arab culture, including music, dance, art, literature, cooking, handcrafts and customs. The State of Israel has NO CURRICULUM for most of the above subjects in Arab schools. However, in Jewish schools Jewish cultural activities flourish! While Jewish schools have Music Rooms full of musical instruments and other relevant equipment, the majority of Arab schools do not even have an electronic keyboard.

There is a curriculum for Arabic Literature, but the material is fraught with errors of all lingual types, including syntax, morphology, semantics, spelling and phonetics. Furthermore the range of Arab writers included in this Curriculum is extremely limited with no modern writers at all. Thus, Arab children are deprived of their right to be familiar with and to learn and appreciate modern Arab literature.

There are also subtle ways in which Arab culture is negated and disparaged, making Arab children feel inferior and marginalized. Examples of these are found in the Hebrew Curriculum for Arab schools in which there is the implication that Arab parents are irresponsible and uncaring, aggressive and materialistic. Furthermore, in the Civics Curriculum for Arab schools, Arab children are overtly instructed that their first allegiance is to the State of Israel, as Israeli citizens. They are also encouraged to have regional and religious associations, but they are never encouraged to acknowledge and be proud of their Arab identity. In these ways, the State of Israel is denying its Arab citizens accurate and positive role models of their culture and ethnicity, while blatantly violating the Arab children’s right to their cultural identity as Arabs.

The third violation of rights concerns Arab children’s right to know their history. The history textbooks for Grades five, six, seven and eight that are used in Arab schools completely ignore the existence of the Arab Palestinian population which lived in this land prior to 1948. Instead, these textbooks are a databank for the Jewish history and emphasize the biblical right of the Jews to the land. This distorted presentation of the history of their country clearly denies the indigenous Arab children their right to know that the Arabs have lived on this land for thousands of years. It denies them the knowledge that the Arabs were the majority in this country until the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. Therefore, Arab children are deprived of accurate details regarding their history, their connection to the land and the continuity of the Arab Palestinian narrative.

The fourth violation of rights concerns Arab children’s right to know and have a connection with their heritage. Heritage includes the stories, myths and legends of a group, as well as the law, traditions, philosophy, land and property, practices and ways of life which are transmitted from the past. In the Geography Curriculum most traces of the past are erased because the Arab children are only taught the Hebrew names of all villages, towns, rivers, mountains and regions, ignoring the original Arabic names. In addition, any connection to the history of the country is severed in the Hebrew Curriculum when Arab children are taught that they are the descendents of Abraham and Hagar and therefore outsiders, originating from another country.

In conclusion, one wonders at the atrocious behavior of the State of Israel in relation to the education of its Arab citizens! Is it a plan to dehumanize the Arab population? Is it a deliberate strategy to construct an Israeli awareness amongst the Arab population as a means of controlling and manipulating them, while at the same time marginalizing them?

    Hm… It’s very sad the author bases her opinion through opinions of others and not self. While most of the article is plain wrong, I wouldn’t waste the time to comment on all of it. But I will make one remark. As long as the financing goes, it is indeed true that the financing is lower for the Israeli Palestinian sector rather than the Jewish sector. However, the facts concealed by the author is that:
    1. Jewish residents usually live in areas where livelyhood is much more expensive than in Arab neighborhoods. For example, as in Arab areas – even of Jerusalem, one of the more expensive cities – the food prices are at least half of cost of same food items in Jewish areas. Same goes for rent, school costs, textbook costs, etc, etc.
    2. Many Israeli Palestinian areas have enormous issues in regards to local management which. For example, many Israeli Palestinian towns pay very low – if any – taxes to the government, and the corruption thrives in those areas. Many Israeli Palestinian municipalities spend next to nothing in terms of education for own population, leave alone paying anything to the state.

    As far as freedom for education goes, wasn’t it Israeli Education Minister Yuli Tamir who pushed just mere years ago for the Arab populations to be taught about the Naqba? Some Apartheid that is.

    It is sad to see the author following Internet memes, instead of doing serious research prior to publishing unsubstantiated accusations. I guess in the Internet age, your keyboard allows you to spew garbare, no matter how wrong.

    The author is so grossly wrong about all of her points, that I’m surprised YaLibnan, which is a newspaper that I thought practiced pretty objective journalism, would print such garbage.

    The proof:

    A 2007 poll among Israeli Arabs about a possible Land (not population) transfer than would see the future border moved so that Israeli Arab villages would be on the Palestinians side of the border in any future Palestinian state:

    *Have you heard of the proposal to annex towns and villages in the Triangle to the Palestinian Authority in exchange for the annexation of the settlements to Israel? (Arab Center for Applied Social Research, November 2007)

    Yes 47.4%
    No 45.1%

    *Would you agree or disagree with such a proposal? (Arab Center for Applied Social Research, November 2007)

    Definitely disagree 72%
    Definitely agree 8%
    Moderately agree 10%
    Do not know 10%

    If it’s so bad here, you’d think they’d be dying to be part of Palestine. I guess they’d miss their world class free education, health care, welfare, and defense provided by the evil apartheid state of Israel, while at the same time, bleeding our budget dry to support their huge families.

    Israel isn’t racist. Druze Arabs are well integrated Zionists. And Arabic is an official language alongside Hebrew. Israel isn’t anti-religion. Muslim Circassians and Bedouins and Maronite Christians are well integrated Zionists. There are Arab judges, generals, members of Parliament, athletes, academics, etc.

    And the author’s claim that “The Israeli Arab population is actually the Indigenous population of Israel”, implying that the Jews aren’t, is part of the same anti-Zionist drivel that has been proven wrong by genetics time and time again. (example, the y-chromosome haplgroups of Jews from Poland are far closer to those of Lebanese people than they are to indigenous Polish Slavs).

    European Jews: (256 individuals) :………………… Lebanese (54 individuals)
    Haplogroup J : 47.3%………………………………….Haplogroup J1 and J2: 51.9%
    Haplogroup E1b: 17%…………………………………Haplogroup E1b : 20.4%
    Haplogroup R1: 26%…………………………………..Haplogroup R1 : 9.3%

    Meanwhile, a different study shows that “the frequency of Haplogroup R1a ranges from 63.39% in the Sorbs, through 56.4% in Poland, 54% in Ukraine, 52% in Russia”. And that’s just R1a. The remainder is vastly made of Haplogroup I, which is virtually absent in Jews and Lebanese. On the other hand, the Middle Eastern haplogroups J and E, which comprise the majority of both Jewish and Lebanese peoples, are virtually absent in in Slavic populations….

    Further proof of the Middle Eastern origins of European Jews and the little contribution of European DNA into our genome. I’m not making any of this stuff up. Plenty of studies have been done. You could check them all out yourselves.

    Actually the author is right. Israel is an apartheid state. Muslim and Christian Arabs don’t have to go to the army while the rest of us (Jews, Bedouins, Maronites, Druze, Circassians, Russians) do. Shameful how Israel treats one of its peoples differently than the other.

        @leobetapar … Economic conditions inflicted on the Germans after WW1 were the reason Hitler came to power … Nazism was created in his warped brain, and a few others who think Jews cause all their money problems. 3000 years of little dictators bashing those who, like the Lebanese, were peaceful and successful trading societies has put your mind where it is today. Isn’t it about time to learn something from them?

I’m sorry for venting my frustration with the author on the paper itself and would like to thank you not just for your objective journalism and for allowing talkbalk, but also for allowing such a forum where average Israelis and Lebanese, who would otherwise never have any contact with each other, could discuss issues that affect both our countries.

      As far as I know, Druze, Circassians and Maronites do not HAVE TO serve in the army. Only those who wish serve in the army. For the Druze and the Beduin population, this decision is often taken by the community leaders.
      As for saying that the Maronites are well integrated Zionists, this is a gross generalization. It seems you have met only Maronites from the SLA (who are no Zionists either!).

            Zionisme is a word invente at least on it’s actual meaning by Herzl in 1880.It have been condamned as heretical by any Ashkenaze school and totaly ignore as atheisme by the sepharade
            1000 years ago the Johanites (worshipper of mary magdalen the whore) created the ashkenazes as khazars selling silent withe men all over Europe until 17 century (hundred of letter to the popes by at least eveques witness that) you haven’t read the 1/100 of what i have man

          • leobetapar

            you say that i am ignorant and nazisme is not a reaction of zionisme .I think ya libnan got pity for you and not forward it to me but i got at it by anothere means.So man open your eyes When Herzl created the first party zioniste in a small road in vienna there was no nazisme in those time but two years after the first party nazi born in the same little vienna’s road with the same revendication “vital space” and other same shaytanneries Man Zionisme amnd nazism are the same coins with two different face but the same meanning.Adolph Hitler great great son of Rabbi S.Hitler of the Guemarra (descant of Hillel by the elder branch) had with is father check and with Herzl when Adolph was only nine.I live in England we can go to court whenever youo want i will be please to explain everything going back to what the jews do in easten Europe during the second millenium ,The only one who know nothing is the one who have never be allow to look where he want freely like you i mean

    • 2160John

      They still do not know if Moses and Abraham were J1 or J2. There is ongoing debate. Real jews are supposedly identified by the Cohenim gene which is widely absent in Israeli society.

      Second, why the huge focus on genetics to justify your stay in historic Palestine??
      More Palestinians are descendants from the Hebrew immigrants to Palestine than Israeli Jews.

      Third, the religous doctrine that claims God promised Israel to the Jews is simply not true. The original Hebrews were a tribe from Sumeria mostly coming from the city of Ur and they migrated and mixed with the original Caananites which inhabited and founded the City of Jeurasalem.
      Those who do good deeds in life to serve humanity deserve the city. People don’t deserve a supposedly holy city just because they’re from a certain religion, color of skin or race. It’s like buying a house in Florida and 2,000 years later having it burnt down and taken away from you because the supposed descendants of  the Seminole Native Americans used to live there 2,000 years ago.

    If it’s so bad here, you’d think they’d be dying to be part of Palestine. I guess they’d miss their world class free education, health care, welfare, and defense provided by the evil apartheid state of Israel, while at the same time, bleeding our budget dry to support their huge families.

    Israel isn’t racist. Druze Arabs are well integrated Zionists. And Arabic is an official language alongside Hebrew. Israel isn’t anti-religion. Muslim Circassians and Bedouins and Maronite Christians are well integrated Zionists. There are Arab judges, generals, members of Parliament, athletes, academics, etc.

    And the author’s claim that “The Israeli Arab population is actually the Indigenous population of Israel”, implying that the Jews aren’t, is part of the same anti-Zionist drivel that has been proven wrong by genetics time and time again. (example, the y-chromosome haplgroups of Jews from Poland are far closer to those of Lebanese people than they are to indigenous Polish Slavs).

    European Jews: (256 individuals) :………………… Lebanese (54 individuals)
    Haplogroup J : 47.3%………………………………….Haplogroup J1 and J2: 51.9%
    Haplogroup E1b: 17%…………………………………Haplogroup E1b : 20.4%
    Haplogroup R1: 26%…………………………………..Haplogroup R1 : 9.3%

    Meanwhile, a different study shows that “the frequency of Haplogroup R1a ranges from 63.39% in the Sorbs, through 56.4% in Poland, 54% in Ukraine, 52% in Russia”. And that’s just R1a. The remainder is vastly made of Haplogroup I, which is virtually absent in Jews and Lebanese. On the other hand, the Middle Eastern haplogroups J and E, which comprise the majority of both Jewish and Lebanese peoples, are virtually absent in in Slavic populations….

    Further proof of the Middle Eastern origins of European Jews and the little contribution of European DNA into our genome. I’m not making any of this stuff up. Plenty of studies have been done. You could check them all out yourselves.

    Actually the author is right. Israel is an apartheid state. Muslim and Christian Arabs don’t have to go to the army while the rest of us (Jews, Bedouins, Maronites, Druze, Circassians, Russians) do. Shameful how Israel treats one of its peoples differently than the other.

    The author is so grossly wrong about all of her points, that I’m surprised YaLibnan, which is a newspaper that I thought practiced pretty objective journalism, would print such garbage.

        @leobetapar … Economic conditions inflicted on the Germans after WW1 were the reason Hitler came to power … Nazism was created in his warped brain, and a few others who think Jews cause all their money problems. 3000 years of little dictators bashing those who, like the Lebanese, were peaceful and successful trading societies has put your mind where it is today. Isn’t it about time to learn something from them?

      As far as I know, Druze, Circassians and Maronites do not HAVE TO serve in the army. Only those who wish serve in the army. For the Druze and the Beduin population, this decision is often taken by the community leaders.
      As for saying that the Maronites are well integrated Zionists, this is a gross generalization. It seems you have met only Maronites from the SLA (who are no Zionists either!).

      They still do not know if Moses and Abraham were J1 or J2. There is ongoing debate. Real jews are supposedly identified by the Cohenim gene which is widely absent in Israeli society.

      Second, why the huge focus on genetics to justify your stay in historic Palestine??
      More Palestinians are descendants from the Hebrew immigrants to Palestine than Israeli Jews.

      Third, the religous doctrine that claims God promised Israel to the Jews is simply not true. The original Hebrews were a tribe from Sumeria mostly coming from the city of Ur and they migrated and mixed with the original Caananites which inhabited and founded the City of Jeurasalem.
      Those who do good deeds in life to serve humanity deserve the city. People don’t deserve a supposedly holy city just because they’re from a certain religion, color of skin or race. It’s like buying a house in Florida and 2,000 years later having it burnt down and taken away from you because the supposed descendants of  the Seminole Native Americans used to live there 2,000 years ago.

    The only two education systems in Israel divide between Israeli citizens and the Arab residents of Jerusalem.  Jerusalem Palestinians have collectively refused citizenship in the past, and as a consequence have special residency and other special status. They can choose between Israeli and Jordanian education tracks. Unfortunately, due to Palestinian Jerusalemites’ tendency to elect a Jordanian track of education versus the Israeli one, they do not receive Hebrew education and even have to go through immersion classes when they reach university.  Arabs elsewhere in the country though receive tremendous Hebrew education and have access to Israeli society.  This is something that has put Arabs on a strong footing as a minority relative to certain other countries, and Palestinians in Jerusalem ought to learn from that example. But this is not a racial divide, nor is it external; it is self-imposed division from the rest of the education system.

    Israel has the right to assert its priority for allegiance versus Arab nationalism.  It is self-destructive to instruct a group within the country to act like a fifth column.  The author of this post is accusing Israel of trying to absorb its minority rather than isolate it.  I am lost as to how to call that apartheid.

    Arab apartheid / Muslim apartheid are the largest ‘apartheid systems’, that exist today.[1]

    Virtually all non-Arabs and/or non-Muslims are second class citizens.[2]

    Among minorities that feel the wrath of the bigoted Arab-Muslim world are:

    * Berbers (native N. Africans, before Arab invasion).

    * Copts (indigenous Egyptians suffer from both: Arab racism and Islamic bigotry).

    * Kurds. Examples include: [Saddam’s] Iraq and Syria.

    * Blacks, in Arab lands or in Arab ruled Africa like the genocide in the Sudan and slavery in both Sudan and in Mauritania.

    * Asians, particularly in the Gulf Arab states. [Sex slaves or “plain” slaves).

    * Maronites-Christians [Native Lebanese] suffer from both Arab ethnic racism and religious bigotry, like the massacres in the 1970s by local Muslims and by Palestinian/Syrian forces.

    * Assyrians, are/have been persecuted both racially and religiously. Still very much marginalized in Iraq, for example.

    * Iran is not an Arab country but racism is huge against Kurds, Jews, Turkmens, etc. So is anti-non-Muslim bigotry against Christians, Bahai, Zoroastrians and other in the Islamic republic.

    * Turkey is also a Muslim non-Arab country and Kurds, Greeks, Armenians and other ethnicities have been through much suffering, genocide. Still there’s great wide racism against non-Turkish ethnic groups. Turkey’s policy in Cyprus has also been recognized as a real Apartheid by many. All non-Muslims are automatically branded as “foreigners” at the “moderate” Islamic supremacy of Turkey.

    * All non-Msulims in ‘Islamic Apartheid state’ of S. Arabia.

    * Asians [slaves!] in the Gulf Arab states.

    * Al-Akhdam in Yemen.

    * Gypsies in Jordan.

    Islamic-Arab “Palestine” apartheid:

    * Ahmadiyya Muslims are harshly persecuted in (Pakistan and in) the “Palestinian” Apartheid authority and/or by Hamas.

    * Descendents of slaves of the Bedouins are still stigmatized by racist “Palestinians”.

    * Christians are discriminated, persercuted against [especially since Y. Arafat’s Islamization of Bethlehem], by Palestine authority and Hamas regime.

    From anti-Jewish Apartheid:

    – The Arab racist apartheid against the Jews attempted genocide ever since the 1920s, (Like Mufti of “Palestine” at his incited massacres, and Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood who called simply ‘to kill Jews’).
    – Chased out a Million Jews in the late 1940.
    – Has boycotted and demonized [every logical defensive action is branded “racist”] the Jewish democratic-free-equal-to-all state only because it’s the “other”. It is neither Muslim nor purely Arab.
    – The Arab racist world continues to play with Arab-Palestinians (grandchildren of Arab immigrants[3]) like ping-pong against Israel.[4]

    AND THE BEACON OF APARTHEID HAS THE AUDACITY TO CHARGE MULTI-RACIAL ISRAEL’S BEAUTIFUL DEMOCRACY [THAT OFTEN GIVES PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT FOR ITS ARABS OVER JEWS[5]|[6]|[7]|[8]|[9]|[10]] WITH THIS TERMINOLOGY?

    THE ARAB DECEPTIVE PROPAGANDA MACHINE THAT ACTS AS IF ARAB-ISLAMIC GENOCIDAL CAMPAIGN IS NOT OBVIOUS TO DETERMINE ISRAEL’S EXTRA SECURITY MEASURES [INCLUDING AN ANTI-TERROR / ANTI-MASSACRES WALL].

    As if we don’t know the ‘Arab oil lobby’s power’ over the UN and other major international organizations and some African officials to go along with the Arab propaganda.

    Despite some non-Arabs who jump on this wagon out of: ignorance, of confusion complex, or of sheer bigotry, never forget, that this entire “apartheid, racism” label was invented by Arab racists ganging up in the UN since 1975.

    Even promoter of the apartheid-slur J. Carter admitted on CNN: “I recognize that Israel is a wonderful democracy with freedom of speech and equality of treatment under the law between Arab Israelis and Jewish Israelis.”[11]

    Radnom fact: Israel is a secular system, its laws are based on the Ottoman and British-Mandate rulings that proceeded the reestablishing of the State in its historic place.

    Incidentally, the lying Pallywood machine also created a fake “memorandum” (written by an Arab propaganist) claiming that N. Mandela ever uttered this crappy analogy.[12]

    Arab Nazism – the origin of the ‘apartheid slur’
    This thesis of falsely comparing Israel to S. Africa’s system was invented by Ahmed Shukeiri in 1961,[13] that’s right, years before the “occupation” excuse ‘appeared’ on the scene. (And of course decades before the security fence against Arab massacres was erected). Not by accident was that very same Mr. Shukairy the aide to the Arab-Islamic Nazi: the Mufti, A. Hitler’s ally, involved assisting in extermination at the period of WWII.[14] He also identified himeself with Nazis (based in Argentina) in front of the United Nations in 1962.[15]

    Last but not least:

    Isn’t it true that the anti-Jewish “apartheid” slur (Treat the ‘A’ word like the ‘N’ word, jpost)[16] campaign is: A) to demonize Jews and B) to hide the real apartheid practice by the Arab-Islamic world?[17]

    A tiny ironic question, What would the bigoted: Arab-Islamic-Palestine-Apartheid regime do with the dreadful “queers-for-palestine”?

      hey man
      you will got it
      the jews whose forbidden in Egypt for sepultures because they were worse than nazi with their slaves so the african tell them tehy will desacralised their earth and can’t be burried there even for Joseph (the poor the ethnies so bad they forgot them when they go)

      the jews destruct the roman peace it’s a senator LEVY who create the law who punished of death any one who use anything else than lead to cook to eat an to hotter his wine
      the jews were growing withe people like poultry in ukraine (the kazars) and exporting them to the rest of the world till the 17th .Thousands of complaint about that exist (cf history of eastern europe)
      the worst people of the 20 th century who killed legion of Romanichels and innocent people where jews or originated from jews I mean Hitler great son of a rabbi of the Guemarra Eichmann Mengele and so on and so on
      and the more important when you said jewish state is that even the only one GOD denies them ,the god of the monotheisme have put them in exile so this state is an heretique state in fact it’s the state of satan and everyone know that the state of saytan has to be on the zenith of it’s power before the fall came and i can assure you that it’s zenith is behind.

    Arab apartheid / Muslim apartheid are the largest ‘apartheid systems’, that exist today.[1]

    Virtually all non-Arabs and/or non-Muslims are second class citizens.[2]

    Among minorities that feel the wrath of the bigoted Arab-Muslim world are:

    * Berbers (native N. Africans, before Arab invasion).

    * Copts (indigenous Egyptians suffer from both: Arab racism and Islamic bigotry).

    * Kurds. Examples include: [Saddam’s] Iraq and Syria.

    * Blacks, in Arab lands or in Arab ruled Africa like the genocide in the Sudan and slavery in both Sudan and in Mauritania.

    * Asians, particularly in the Gulf Arab states. [Sex slaves or “plain” slaves).

    * Maronites-Christians [Native Lebanese] suffer from both Arab ethnic racism and religious bigotry, like the massacres in the 1970s by local Muslims and by Palestinian/Syrian forces.

    * Assyrians, are/have been persecuted both racially and religiously. Still very much marginalized in Iraq, for example.

    * Iran is not an Arab country but racism is huge against Kurds, Jews, Turkmens, etc. So is anti-non-Muslim bigotry against Christians, Bahai, Zoroastrians and other in the Islamic republic.

    * Turkey is also a Muslim non-Arab country and Kurds, Greeks, Armenians and other ethnicities have been through much suffering, genocide. Still there’s great wide racism against non-Turkish ethnic groups. Turkey’s policy in Cyprus has also been recognized as a real Apartheid by many. All non-Muslims are automatically branded as “foreigners” at the “moderate” Islamic supremacy of Turkey.

    * All non-Msulims in ‘Islamic Apartheid state’ of S. Arabia.

    * Asians [slaves!] in the Gulf Arab states.

    * Al-Akhdam in Yemen.

    * Gypsies in Jordan.

    Does this writer even know what an apartheid is???? This is not journalism but a poorly researched attack on Israel. South Africa did indeed create new countries within her territory but South Africa disenfranchized all non-whites and made them citizens of these countries even though they didn’t live within them. In Israel proper, non-Jews have the right to vote, to move freely, to use all services and form their own parties, even parties that officially try to destroy the country’s character. With regards to the West Bank, it wasn’t a formal part of the country that Israel disenfranchised. It was a territory of undetermined permanent status that Israel couldn’t decide what to do with due to the problems in every possible decision. It is in reality more like a colony, 58% of which is under Israeli military rule and 42% of which is under various levels of autonomy. It is universally agreed that this isn’t and shouldn’t be the permanent solution and Israel has been trying to negotiate a solution.
