State says nobody has a right to sell the drafts on the open market for a profit, as this infringes on the state's right to keep an asset 'of deep symbolic significance' that belongs to the state and the public.01:40 27.11.15 | 0 comments
Over the years and decades America has extended a number of "carrots" to Israel. The routine is that Israel takes the carrot as a permanent thing and gives nothing in return. There are so many it is hard to keep track. One little known example is that for decades America has paid for all the fuel used by the IDF. Anyway, Israel takes the carrots, expects them to continue for life, and gives nothing in return. Now Obama comes along, tries to get tough with Israel and shrinks back from confrontation. He comes up with the brilliant idea of offering more carrots. Obviously Obama is not the man we thought he was. It will take a better man to confront real peace in the mideast. Meanwhile we will bear witness to more peace fakery. Now that the mask is off, Israel barely attempts to maintain the facade of a peace process. Example? Conduction "peace talks" while refusing to freeze settlement expansion.
