Three points of dissent, including whether Israel will be able to control the broadcast and where the cameras will be situated, could lead to new tensions over flashpoint site.04:55 07.02.16 | 0 comments
I suppose you're one of those who believe against all the evidence that Obama is a Muslim "Manchurian candidate". Or who insist that the Islamic cultural center proposed for a site two blocks away from the World Trade Center by a moderate Sufi (whose co-religionists are victims of Islamic extremists, and who, even as I write, is on a goodwill trip to Muslim countries, sponsored by the State Department, to promote American ideals) is a triumphalist mosque at ground zero erected by al Qaeda sympathizers for the purpose of poking Americans in the eye. I'm sure anyone who advocates a contiguous viable Palestinian state on the West Bank and shared sovereignty of Jerusalem, particularly the holy places, wants to destroy Israel or deny Jewish access to the Western wall. Actually you needn't worry that any of your dire predictions will come true. Netanyahu has no intent of making any meaningful concessions to the Palestinians, so your precious Israel can continue indefinitely as an international pariah, subjected to increasing worldwide boycott, sanctions and disinvestment and increasing attacks from a hopeless Palestinian population.
