Yael Patir, Israel director of the left-leaning U.S. Jewish body, sat down with Haaretz to talk about Trump, the gap between U.S. and Israeli Jews, and the growing anger at the Israeli peace camp. Though she concedes boycott efforts by some on the left have a negative effect, she rejects calls to keep peace efforts local.01:12 01.05.16 | 4 comments
He says it would obstrust a two state peace, when it patently does not. This shows he cannot be trusted. He wants talks on borders without disarming terrorists. Thus he himself, has abandoned the peace process. He only sees peace talks as a forum for 67 border publicity. As neither Fatah or Hamas supports a settlement without right of return for refugees (Hamas supports continued terrorism even with 67 borders - this after a period of re-armament), they only serve this purpose - and also to obstruct convergence (which they fear is the way to ending Israel's diplomatic marginalisation).* *There is a paradox, thus who justify marginalising Israel because of the occupation, fear any sign of support for Israel in the (partial) ending of it. However what they really have to fear is the impasse that will come when in it is clear that not even 67 borders will result in peace. Iran is planning for this day and the EU weakness is facilitating this.
