Netanyahu wants no-state solution for Palestine: Hamid Golpira

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and some other Israelis want neither one-state solution nor two-state solution for Palestine rather they want a no-state solution, political analyst Hamid Golpira says.

Golpira made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on International Quds Day, which is the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan.

“Two-state solution, if it could happen in a proper way, even could be an acceptable thing for the people who want a one-state solution in the future. They could see it… one step towards a one-state solution,” Golpira said.

He added that what “some of the Israelis, especially people like Mr. Netanyahu, are presenting… neither it is the one-state solution nor is the two-state solution it is more of the no state solution; meaning, they want no state for Palestine or no viable state.”

“If they want to say this piece is separated and that piece is separated; certain sovereignty does not exist; this country cannot have an army, East Jerusalem (al-Quds) does not belong there. You could say that this proposal is a no-state solution, which is totally not acceptable in every way. So, the no-state solution is not acceptable,” he went on to say.

Golpira stated that things are not looking so great right at the moment, but “eventually it will be that East Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine.”

“And maybe soon all of the Jerusalem will be one capital of the one united Palestine in a one state-solution, which is what some people are working for to have a one-state solution through referendum of all the people, including the diaspora of Palestinians if they are allowed to return — then the Palestinians are much in the majority. Maybe that cannot happen really soon but it could happen fairly soon — it could happen one day. There will be justice for Palestine in the future if not in the near future, but in the future it will happen,” he noted.

Golpira also said that there should be an international campaign “to show that Israel is an apartheid regime just like South Africa was an apartheid regime. And there should be a worldwide campaign with boycotts, divestment sanctions against the apartheid regime of Israel just as there was a campaign against apartheid South Africa.”

Millions of Muslims across the world held demonstrations on Friday to express solidarity with the Palestinian people and condemn the crimes committed by the Israeli regime.

In 1979, the late Imam Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, designated the last Friday of the lunar month of Ramadan as International Quds Day and advised Muslims across the world to commemorate the day by holding demonstrations and marches to express solidarity with the people of Palestine and their liberation struggle.
