PLO's Saeb Erekat says talks have ground to a halt due to Israel's rejection of Palestinian requests to resume full security duties in Area A.15:16 03.05.16 | 0 comments
Many Israelis pay homage to a two state solution in words alone. They then feel comfortable in extremist security measures to protect themselves against Palestinians that react to confiscated homes and land. Hypocrisy is the doctrine of many Israelis. If there was sincerety in the Israeli people, they would not stand by the Netanyahu-Lieberman-Ultra Orthodox coalition. They would be promoting ways in which Israel can disengage from the occupation. They would be reacting to the abuses of the settlers and the IDF. They would be considering how to strengthen the Palestinian economy so that Palestine can become a viable, governable, prosperous nation-state. Instead I hear words coming from a few but no actions that demonstrate a sincere commitment to a just peace. Most Israelis have become content with the status quo and the ability to periodically rant about the Palestinian threat.
