'There’s a unique place of pique for the Israelis in certain places in the administration' hovering over negotiations, expert tells New York Times.08:55 29.04.16 | 0 comments
Rubinstein lives in denial. He claims some of the Palestinians want to destroy Israel? I say it?s at least half, based on the last elections. Even if only a quarter do not want peace it would not matter because they would violently oppose it. We see how they solve political disputes amongst themselves, what would they do to Israel if they disagree about some minor point? As for his false idea that there is no difference between a peace agreement and a ceasefire: no one in their right mind would have signed a ceasefire agreement with Egypt, giving them the Sinai. It was peace that was delivered, with full diplomatic relations. A peace that was not broken even during the two Lebanon wars and the Intifada. His claim that it was only a ceasefire agreement is a serious blow to the peace movement. Hamas is not a partner and their chokehold on power percludes a peace process.
