The Arab Israeli conflict has been an issue for over 100 years. After the terrible events of the Holocaust, many people believed that Jews deserved a safe homeland. Because of the Jewish background that says that God told Abraham to leave his homeland, and the land of Israel was promised by God to the descendants of Abraham. By 1947, Palestine was full of Jews that were trying to escape persecution. Zionist Jews however liked the idea of having a Jewish homeland the most. The local Palestinian population of Muslim Arabs felt that the constant immigration was threatening their way of life. Disharmonies between the Arabic and Jewish populations had been constant.
Famous diplomats and government officials have been trying to distribute the land of Israel in a way that would please both sides with no success. I however have come up with a solution that I feel will satisfy both parties. The UN tried to divide Israel in effort to make peace between the two conflicted nations but the Palestinians rejected. After so many “no’s” by the Arabs, I began to think that
no matter how the UN divided Israel, the Arabs would never accept it. I asked myself, “Will the Palestinians accept any partition plan?” I felt that the Palestinians were sending the UN on a wild goose chase. I then thought of the other possible solutions. The only other way that I saw of creating a peaceful environment for both groups was relocating the Jews and restoring the Palestinians their original homeland.
Many people would argue that Israel was and is the Jewish homeland and their holy land, but I say that if it was so holy to them, then why were not they living there before the Holocaust. If it was so holy to them, then they would have been living there before all of this conflict erupted. They resorted to the bible after things got rough and only then. So I believe that it would be unethical to make the fact that Palestine is the Jewish homeland the reason why you would agree with the Jews and allow them to remain in Palestine.
I believe that the reason that the Arabs did not want the Jews in Palestine was because there was not enough room and the Jews were very aggressive and rude toward the Arabs. I thought that if I found a country that was spacious enough, and that had people that would accept the Jews, then I might have found a solution to this conflict.
Not many countries could qualify for the place that the Jews new homeland would be, but there was one country that I thought was pretty close to the perfect place for the Jews. That country is known as Australia. There are many reasons why I feel that Australia qualify for the homeland for the Jews. Some of the physical reasons are that Australia is the third least densely populated country in the world. The population density of Australia is 2.8 people per square mile so there is more than enough room for the Jews. The climate varies from temperate in south and east to tropical in north. Palestine is very dry and has many deserts so Australia has a much nicer climate. Australia's abundant and diverse natural resources attract high levels of foreign investment and include large
supplies of coal, iron ore, copper, gold, natural gas, uranium, and renewable energy sources.
Some social reasons are that today, between 115,000 and 120,000 Jews live in Australia out of a total population of over 20 million. There are 81 synagogues and 18 day schools in Australia, and many Jewish newspapers and periodicals. More than 50% of Jewish students are enrolled in Jewish schools, which is the highest rate anywhere in the world with the exception of Israel. Australia obtains close relations with the State of Israel, and was one of the strongest supporters of partition. There are cultural and economic ties between the two countries, and Australia has remained some-what neutral in UN discussions. Because of these reasons, the Australians will more than likely accept the Jews unlike the Palestinians.
In order to make the transition as comfortable as possible, I have decided it would be a good idea to help them transition over a three year time period rather then all of them traveling at once. The current population of Jews in Palestine is 5,978,600 so there will be approximately 2 million people traveling each year. In order to allow for an easier transition, I propose that the UN and the Palestinian government will provide the following assistance for Jews immigrating to Australia from Israel:
– Give incentives to Australian businesses that give job training and placement to Jewish immigrants
– Full payment of transportation from Israel to Australia for Jewish immigrants.
I’m sure the Jews don’t enjoy the attacks from the Palestinians and they have also witnessed the rejections that the Palestinians made to the UN’s attempts of peace. I don’t see why any Jew or any person would disagree with my plan.
