    Even as a Palestinian, I must say one thing: Successive Israelli governments have been incredibly consistent with one message. Jerusalem is "off-limits". Any talk of "settlements" and they slam you with an announcement of hundreds (or thousands) of residential units on occupied territory. On the eve of key importants, BANG yet another announcement. On the eve of another useless letter from the sock muppets at the PA and heck, let's make another announcement. Couple the above with consistent Palestinian disposession, at the hands of a brutally racist Apartheid regime in Israel, and a 5-year old would conclude that peace is not on the agenda of the Israelis and has never been. What IS on the agenda is an ideological vision, built on biblical prophecies, that must be fulfilled at ANY cost. I wish the PA would, for once, come clean and stop kidding the Palestinian people everywhere. It's time for a massive paradigm shift and I dare say the PA itself has become a liability onto its own self and the general interest of Palestine. This Palestinian hopes Abbas will throw the towel back at Israel and let it deal....Announce the region to be an apartheid regime and quit politics Abbas. Quit BS'ing, we're through...

Pollard’s release feels like a consolation prize

The fact that the convicted spy's release is happening at such a low moment in U.S.-Israel ties casts a pall over the news.
