The Palestinian Authority was born on 1994 as a result of the Oslo agreement between Israel and the PLO under Yasser Arafat. The intention was that the PA would assume control of West Bank and Gaza and start preparing for the creation of the state of Palestine, until Isaac Rabin was assassinated by an Israeli rightist.
Since its formation the PA was involved in corruption, and the daily lives of the average Palestinians only became worse, many people dropped their private owned jobs to work for the PA, and those involved in the security forces of the PA which are estimated to be around 300 thousand. And as we can see that Israel can simply stop the flow of tax money that they collect on the PA’s behalf, and this means that no salaries are to be paid in that month.
The PA has worked tirelessly on making Ramallah the center for their achievements and to be the political capital of Palestine, and you can see the new buildings, the amazing streets, that’s why Ramallah became a bubble to impress its visitors that it’s flourishing under the PA administration. One has to go to the other cities and towns in the West Bank to see what life is really like.
The West Bank has all the requirements for a revolution, unemployment is very high, poverty was reported to be close to 79%, and a dictatorship was already established in the West Bank and Gaza before any state could be achieved. The Fateh-Hamas governments have established horror regimes based on torture, prisons, security services, and getting involved in the private life of people, a bunch of elitists control everything with no regard to the people’s demands or regards. A theocracy in Gaza, and a typical Arabic dictatorship in the West Bank with stupid laws showing up every now and then. The people must take the initiative of bringing the PA to an end, and restore freedom to themselves.
The West Bank proved to be a puppet for the Israeli occupation doing their job, arresting and interrogating people on behalf of Israel, their will to drop the right of return which is the base of the Palestinian cause, and the readiness to give up Jerusalem. And at the same time Gaza proved that it’s just another Iran but over looking the Mediterranean, arresting activists on no legal base and against every law, the extreme precautions they take, and the involvement in the people’s private issues such as forcing hijab, and forbidding women to smoke shisha in public.
The Israeli occupation must get back to doing what it has to do, and what the situation was like before the PA’s creation, in which the occupation had to provide health care, education, and even jobs for those living under it’s authority. Because the PA is just making it easier and comfortable for the Israelis with their existence, and then with the natural evolution of things we’ll end up enforcing the one state solution, because no other solution makes sense other than that.
