    Since the beginning of talks between Israel and the Palestinians, including Oslo, the Palestinians have never been required to make any type of significant concession to Israel. I invite you to correct me if I am wrong. I won’t hold my breath. The Palestinians have planned all along to show Israel as the cause of the failure of the talks in order for them to implement a plan for the rest of the world to do the negotiations, if you can call it that, for them. Abbas cannot wait to unleash the full force of their plan to take Israel down the apartheid South Africa road. For years Arafat and now him, have been preparing for the same tactics and action that, so they believe, can be carried out against Israel. There will be trying times for Israel but in the end the Palestinians will fail in their bid to grab concessions from Israel without having to give anything in return. Israel is nothing like apartheid South Africa, no matter what Abbas and his friends in the Russell Tribunal have to say. The truth will find its way to enough good people around the world the thwart this evil and disgusting move by them.
