Israel's Foreign Ministry ordered to 'reassess' EU involvement with Palestinians after decision to label West Bank goods; 'decision is almost completely devoid of any real significance,' official says.23:15 29.11.15 | 10 comments
Except that armed attack (not resistance) has gotten the Arabs where they are now. Five armies attacked Israel in 1948 and Israel wound up with more territory than they accepted in the original partition. Three armies decided to take Israel on in 1967 and Israel wound up with Sinai, the Golan and the West Bank. Egypt finally decided that maybe negotiations were a good idea and got the Sinai back (unfortunately, they didn't want Gaza). Maybe the Arabs in the West Bank should consider that history and enter seriously into negotiations. And sitting around pouting like a two-year-old insisting that the rules be changed to suit you, as Abbas is doing (since he didn't do anything during the original ten-month freeze, he wants it extended - and then? - another?), won't accomplish anything, either.
