Obstacles and ramifications of establishing an independent palestinian state
For over 30 years, Palestinians of the West Bank and Gaza Strip have existed in a state of limbo under Israeli military occupation. They have been isolated from neighboring Arab states in which they were once citizens, and have not been granted Israeli citizenship. They have been dominated and alienated. As a result of these socioeconomic and political conditions, Palestinian nationalism has experienced a revival. With the implementation of Interim peace agreements in. the early 1990s, Palestinians of the occupied territories gained national autonomy. This was considered by many to be the first step toward independence.
The premise of this thesis is to demonstrate that not only will a simple declaration of independence not solve the deep-seated injustices of Zionist ideology, but it may in fact incur socio-economic hardships worse than any experienced under Israeli occupation. . I will provide a basis for my assumption that liberation and justice can only be achieved by exposing and reforming a corrupt system, not by simply kneading into a altered but equally ominous arrangement.
