So, the U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron is on a fresh tour of the Middle East to try and push a five-point plan to quell the latest war between Israel and Hamas. I mean, who wouldn’t want to jump into that mess? It’s like trying to break up a fight between two toddlers throwing sand at each other in the sandbox.
The Two-State Solution
Cameron has been advocating for a two-state solution as the only viable long-term solution to this conflict. But let’s be real here, folks. The chances of that happening are about as likely as pigs sprouting wings and flying off into the sunset.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is not having any of it, though. He’s all like, “I want full Israeli security control over everything west of Jordan.” Sorry buddy, but that sounds pretty contrary to a Palestinian state if you ask me.
The U.K. government has previously said they will “recognize a Palestinian state at a time when it best serves the objective of peace.” Yeah, because nothing says peace like waiting around for an opportune moment before acknowledging someone else’s existence.
Meanwhile, British lawmakers have been pushing for more action from their government but so far have been met with rejection. It’s almost comical how these politicians think they can make any headway in this situation by just asking nicely.
Cameron’s Five-Point Plan
Cameron’s five-point plan includes some real gems such as: pushing for international support package for Gaza; forming new Palestinian government; removing Hamas’ ability to attack Israel; releasing Israeli hostages held by Hamas; and getting rid of “key Hamas leaders” from Gaza.
I mean really Dave? Do you honestly think these guys are going to sit down together over teaSponsored Product and crumpets after all this mess?
So there you have it folks! Another attempt at peace in the Middle East by none other than our very own Mr.Cameron.
Let us know what your thoughts are on this whole fiasco!
Until next time,
