Population Transfer Is The Answer - The Gaza Strip And The Decisions Of The Potsdam Conference Of 1945
If ISIS Continues To Exist In Gaza It Will Show Itself In Europe And Beyond
The Gaza Strip and the decisions of the Potsdam Conference of 1945.
By Yakov Faitelson
The Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia and Russia have created a precedent for addressing the threat that threatened the peaceful life and safety of their citizens.
At the Potsdam Conference, the Allied leaders agreed on the terms of occupation, new German borders, and the deportation of ethnic Germans from the territories of Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary to Allied territory in Germany. These agreements were drawn up between July 17 and August 2, 1945.
Paragraph 12 of the agreement, which refers to the deportation of Germans, states:
The Western allies also saw the threat of a potential German 'fifth column', especially in Poland after the agreed-to compensation with former German territory. In general, the Western allies hoped to secure a more lasting peace by eliminating the German minorities, which they thought could be done in a humane manner. The proposals from the Polish and Czech governments-in- exile to expel ethnic Germans after the war received support from Winston Churchill and Anthony Eden.
As Winston Churchill expounded in the House of Commons in 1944, "Expulsion is the method which, insofar as we have been able to see, will be the most satisfactory and lasting. There will be no mixture of populations to cause endless trouble... A clean sweep will be made. I am not alarmed by the prospect of disentanglement of populations, not even of these large transferences, which are more possible in modern conditions than they have ever been before."
About 7 million Germans were deported from Poland, and about 3.5 million Germans from Czechoslovakia. 303 thousand Germans were deported from Hungary.
In 1939, there were 2.49 million Germans living in East Prussia. Its territory was divided by Russia, Poland and Lithuania. After the war, only about 2,000 Germans remained in the Lithuanian part around the port city of Klaipeda.
"The Three Governments, having considered the question in all its aspects,
recognize that the transfer to Germany of German populations, or elements
thereof, remaining in Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary, will have to be
undertaken. They agreed that any transfers that take place should be effected
in an orderly and humane manner.
About 500 thousand Germans left the territory of Yugoslavia. Before the war, about 786,000 Germans lived in Romania; in 2002 there were only about 60,000.
At the end of World War II, the Dutch government decided to deport 25,000 Germans living in the Netherlands.
It is necessary to remind all members of the UN and especially the leaders of the United States and Europe how these countries solved the problem of the Nazi minority on their territory and thereby guaranteed security and a peaceful life for all future generations of their citizens.
And what was right, legal and permissible for these countries is permissible, legal and right to do to solve the threat to Israel from the small ISIS - the Islamic and Nazi quasi-state in the Gaza Strip. After all, if ISIS continues to exist in Gaza, it will show itself in Europe and beyond.
As noted in many public opinion polls conducted over the years, most residents of the Gaza Strip have often expressed their desire to emigrate from the small and dense strip, which lacks all the natural resources necessary to provide adequate living conditions for its steadily growing population.
For this purpose, the United Nations High Commission for Refugees exists, which implements programs for the resettlement of refugees around the world. A special international fund should be established with the help of which it will be possible to finance the resettlement of Arab refugees from the Gaza Strip in countries that will be ready to receive them. This is the natural, logical and only solution to the humanitarian problem which is getting worse as a result of the murderous and inhuman actions of Hamas.
