The headlines this week reeked of déjà vu, reminiscent of previous confrontations and intifadas, as conditions on the ground in Gaza are becoming more and more similar to those that preceded the 2014 war.19:05 05.02.16 | 4 comments
The Palestinians did not wage war against Israel before 1967. That's how I explain that. Can you explain why you invent such things? Israel declared statehood on 14 May 1948. On 15 May, the next day, the Jordanian army occupied the West Bank and Jerusalem. Then Egypt took Gaza. The two Arab states allowed no Palestinian attacks on Israel. Are you lying? or you just don't know better? In 1993 the PLO recognized the State of Israel. It also declared it recognized UN resolutions 242 and 338. It declared that the PLO commits to the ME peace process and to peaceful resolution of conflict thru negotiations. It said the PLO renounces terrorism and other acts of violence and will assume responsibility to prevent violations and discipline violators. How can I convince Israelis of anything if they are no better read than you?
