'Questioning the fairness of the courts is to question the justice of the Kingdom and its judicial system based on Islamic law,' claims Justice Ministry.19:30 26.11.15 | 0 comments
I have to disagree. Reconciliation has to start with the biggest obstacles for each side. For Israelis, that issue is security and for Palestinians that issue is borders. While PA security improvements are proceeding in the West Bank, the PA writ does not run in Gaza. It seems neither the Israeli government, nor the PA government, nor the US government has any realistic plan for extending the PA writ to Gaza. To solve this dilemma, all parties to the negotiations will have to take off the ideological blinders and start thinking outside of the self-created box. Actually defining the borders of the future Palestine will solve many problems. Once it is clear where the borders will be, it will be clear that Jews who live or build inside what will be Palestine will be ultimately subject to Palestinian law and living in Palestine, not Israel, when all is said and done. Choices on building or not building will no longer affect the process.
