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
What sort of double-talk is this? First of all, they HAVE been involved - it's called the Arab Peace Initiative, Bibi, and you and yours have completely ignored it! Second, what does their involvement honestly have to do with anything? And third, how in the hell will their involvement provide "political backing" to Israel? Bibi is just blowing nonsensical smoke in a bid to delay, prolong, and prevent progress. And "sufficient gestures in return"??? It's that old recurring 'allusion without substance' that invariably dissipates into thin air as soon as its made...lol. You are oh so very wrong, Bibi - the Palestinians must be ENCOURAGED to take unilateral action...because it's become obvious as hell that it's the only way they'll be able to attain a viable state and pin Israel down to honest negotiations if its borders. Which IS, of course, the reason it worries you so much whenever its mentioned as an alternative.
