The Peace Process Is the Process of Blaming Israel

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


John-Kerry1-415x280Big lies don’t always start out big. They don’t even always start out as lies. They only grow big in the cover-up when the truth has to be beaten off with a stick made out of even bigger lies.

A brief read of the daily newspapers, a quick flick through the cable news networks and an ear cocked to the drive-time news minute might give you the idea that Israel is isolated and besieged. Israel is indeed a small country. It’s always been isolated in a Muslim region that is willing to kill even fellow Arab Christians and fellow Arab Shiites over differences of religion.

But contrary to the Peace Lobby sloganeering, Israel isn’t morally bankrupt, the intellectual premises of Zionism aren’t shattered and it’s not a failed state on the verge of destruction.

It’s the Peace Lobby that is frantically struggling to keep its big lie together. Its attacks on Israel are not a show of strength, but a desperate cover-up. From the high chambers where John Kerry suggests Israel is going to be an Apartheid state to the low chambers of failed boycotts against academics and soda companies, the purveyors of the big lie are coming apart at the seams.

The big peace lie started out small. Both sides would shake hands and make peace. And white doves would fly from Jerusalem to Ramallah. To some it wasn’t even a lie; just blind idealism and wishful thinking. It was only when the lie was tried and failed that it truly became a lie and then there were no more idealists, only desperate liars covering up one lie with another.

The entire peace process rested on the lie that the PLO wanted to make peace. Israel had successfully reached peace agreements, including territorial compromises, with its enemies. Its credibility was never in question. The PLO’s credibility was the big question mark and when its willingness to make peace was put to the test and it failed, again and again, the big lie began.

Israel can’t do anything right in the peace process and the PLO can’t do anything wrong. When Abbas blatantly violated his agreements by going to the UN, Secretary of State John Kerry took a seat in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and blamed Israel.

Then Abbas made a unity deal with Hamas, which is committed to destroying Israel, and Kerry told the Trilateral Commission that Israel was on the path to becoming an Apartheid state.

Kerry may be notorious for his terrorist sympathies, but he was following the grand tradition of his predecessors and of the entire Peace Lobby by blaming the peace partner with the most credibility instead of the one with the least credibility because the credibility of the peace process depends on its weakest link. And that is the Palestinian Authority’s Abbas and his PLO terrorists.

If you were trying to negotiate the sale of a home from a seller acting in good faith to a buyer acting in bad faith, you would blame the seller because once you admit that the buyer is acting in bad faith, the credibility of the sale vanishes into thin air. The smart thing for the seller to do is to walk away, but unfortunately Israeli leaders are convinced that they can prove their good faith by eagerly showing up to negotiate.

What they don’t understand is that blaming Israel is a structural part of the peace process.

If the Peace Lobby admits that the PLO is not credible, that Abbas is a manipulative crook, that his henchmen are waiting for his death to begin offing each other, not to continue the great struggle for the nationhood of a nation that never existed, but for the chance to dip their golden buckets in the river of foreign aid that flows from Brussels, Washington and Tokyo, the peace process would collapse.

The only way to keep the peace process going is to blame Israel. The Jewish State can never prove its good faith and the PLO can never demonstrate its bad faith.

The worse the PLO behaves, the harsher the Peace Lobby attacks on Israel become.

If Abbas goes to the UN, Kerry bashes Israel in the Senate. If Abbas goes to Hamas, Kerry calls Israel an Apartheid State. In the Peace Lobby’s version of The Untouchables, if Abbas brings a knife, Kerry shoots Israel in the head.

It makes no moral sense, but it’s an entirely pragmatic response if you’re covering up a big lie by escalating its size and scope. Kerry isn’t a peace negotiator; he’s Peacegate’s cover-up man.

The tragedy of the Peace Lobby is that by tying peace to the PLO, they made peace impossible. When the PLO realized that it couldn’t lose and Israel couldn’t win, it escalated its demands. The more the Peace Lobby covered up for the PLO, the more the PLO acted in ways that made the cover-ups necessary and peace impossible.

The big peace liars escalated the problem they were lying about with their lies. The more they lied to protect the peace process, the more the peace process drew out of reach. Their own lies about the PLO in support of the peace process killed peace.

Now all that’s left is the dirty business of the cover-up. And the cover-up of the biggest Western diplomatic failure of the last two decades may still destroy Israel.

Too many governments and public figures have invested too much in the big lie. Like so many other big lies, the big peace lie has become too big to fail.

If politicians from around the world and across the political spectrum were to admit that they trusted a terrorist group to reform only to see the whole thing blow up in their faces, they would look like idiots. Like John Kerry and Miley Cyrus, they can’t stop. The whole thing has gone on for too long and the longer it goes on, the worse admitting the truth would make them look.

And so the big lie keeps gaining momentum. Its dimensions are swiftly becoming universal as the Peace Lobby claims that all the terrorism in the world and all the instability in the Middle East will be put to rest once the peace process is completed. Before too long, the peace process will offer the cure to cancer, lost socks and global warming. Like every bubble, the only way to prevent it from bursting is by blowing it up even bigger.

And when it does burst, it will take a lot more with it.

Israel can never prove its willingness to make peace to a Peace Lobby whose reputations would be destroyed by that proof. The Peace Lobby allowed the PLO to take the peace process hostage and once that happened any hope for peace became hopeless.

The big peace lie killed the peace it was lying about. And now all that’s left is protecting the lie, no longer for the sake of peace, but for the sake of the liars.

    Ashton backs Hamas-Fatah deal, but says new Palestinian government must recognize Israel

    A question for Catherine Ashton:
    http://www.madisdead.blogspot.co.il/2014/04/off-topic-simple-question-for-catherine.html

    Since Article 13 of the Hamas Charter reads:

    “There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad”

    while article Article 7 of the Hamas Charter reads:

    Ashton backs Hamas-Fatah deal, but says new Palestinian government must recognize Israel

    “The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him”.

    and since Article 7 is taken from Hadith Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 177and quotes the Prophet Muhammad:

    “Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”

    does Catherine Ashton believe that Hamas will abolish its Charter and renege on Muhammad’s words in the Charter?

  • BagLady

    Viz-a-viz nothing at all, thought I’d share this gem of a conspiracy theory I received from a mate in the UN:

    “One theory of many:

    While the USA is withdrawing from Afghanistan one of their command and
    control system (used for controlling the pilotless drones) was
    hijacked by the Taliban while the American transport convoy was moving
    down from one of the hill top bases. The Taliban ambushed the convoy
    and killed 2 American Seal personnel, seized the equipment/weapons,
    including the command and control system which weighed about 20 tons
    and packed into 6 crates. This happened in Feb 2014.

    What the Taliban want is money. They offered to sell the system
    to the Russians &r the Chinese. The Russians are too busy in Ukraine
    but the Chinese are hungry for the system’s technology. Just imagine
    if the Chinese master the technology behind the command and control
    system, all American drones will become useless. So the Chinese sent
    8 top defense scientists to check the system and agreed to pay
    millions for it.

    Sometime in early Mar 2014, the 8 scientists and the 6 crates
    made their way to Malaysia, thinking that it was the best covert way
    to avoid detection. The cargo was then kept in the Embassy under
    diplomatic protection. Meanwhile the Americans engaged the
    assistance of Israeli intelligence, and together they were determined
    to intercept and recapture the cargo.

    The Chinese decided that it will be safest to transport it via
    civilian aircraft so as to avoid suspicion. After all the direct
    flight from KL to Beijing takes only 4 and half hours, and the
    American will not hijack or harm a civilian aircraft.. So MH370 is
    the perfect carrier.

    There are 5 American and Israeli agents onboard who are
    familiar with Boeing operation. The 2 “Iranians” with stolen passports
    could be among them.

    When MH370 is about to leave Malaysian air space and was
    reporting to Vietnamese air control, one American AWAC jammed their
    signal, disabled the pilot control system and switched over to remote
    control mode. That was when the plane suddenly lost altitude
    momentarily.

    How AWAC can do this ? Remember the 911 incident ? After the
    911 incident, all Boeing aircraft (and possibly all Airbus) were
    installed with a remote control system to counter terrorist hijacking.
    Since then all Boeings could be remote controlled by ground control
    tower. The same remote control system used to control the pilotless
    spy aircraft and drones.

    The 5 American/Israeli agents soon took over the plane,
    switched off the transponder a nd other communication systems, changed
    course and flew westwards. They dare not fly east to Philippines or
    Guam because the whole South China Sea air space is covered by Chinese
    surveillance radar and satellite.

    The Malaysian, Thai and Indian military radars actually
    detected the unidentified aircraft but did not react professionally.

    The plane flew over North Sumatra, Anambas, South India and
    then landed at Maldives (some villagers saw the aircraft landing),
    refuelled and continued its flight to Garcia Dei go, the American Air
    Base in the middle of Indian Ocean. The cargo and the black box were
    removed. The passengers were silenced via natural means, lack of
    oxygen. They believe only dead person will not talk. The MH370 with
    dead passengers took off again via remote control and crashed into the
    South Indian Ocean, causing the world to believe that the plane
    eventually ran out of fuel and crashed, and hence blame the defiant
    captain and copilot.

    The Americans have put up a good show. First diverting all the
    attention and search effort into the South China Sea while the plane
    made its way to the Indian Ocean. Then they came out with conflicting
    statements and evidence to confuse the world. Austral ia is complicit.

    The amount of effort put up by China, in terms of the number of
    search aircraft, ships and satellites, searching first the South China
    Sea, then the Malacca Straits and the Indian Ocean is unprecedented.
    This showed that China is very concerned, not so much because of the
    many Chinese civilian passengers, but mainly the high value cargo and
    its 8 top defense scientists.

    Don’t believe the story? I don’t expect you to but let’s wait
    and see how the episode unveils itself. Or perhaps it will never be
    known until the next Snowden emerges.”

  • JVictor

    Any reasonable human being with half a brain would logically conclude that Israel is not to blame for the moving target called the Peace Process. Since logical reason is hard to find when discussing this issue with the Kerry’s of the world, there’s only one explanation: The hatred of Jews and Israel is inspired by Satan.

    • StanleyT

      Exactly, It takes an enormous ability to ignore logic in order to be anti-Zionist (read anti-Semitic). Reason simply won’t allow it, which is why the Kerrys are all so darn unreasonable.

    • Softly Bob

      It is indeed.

  • wildjew

    No question, the “Peace Lobby” finds a comfortable home on the left, in today’s Democratic party but where is the anti-Peace Lobby? Counter-jihad activist Pamela Geller writes, “Both sides of the aisle are calling for this antisemite’s resignation.” Indeed but how much distance is there between this “Peace Lobby” advocate / Secretary of State and former Secretary of State James Baker, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, all “Peace Lobby” activists and advocates for their respective presidents? Senator Ted Cruz took to the Senate floor and rightly called for Kerry to resign. Will Senator Cruz take on the lying Peace Lobby in the Republican party, my party?

    • Daniel Greenfield

      He might, but few will.

      • wildjew

        A CUFI (Christians United For Israel) officer assured me some years back during the Bush years, the plank calling for the establishment of a Palestinian state in Israel will be in our national party platform for years to come. So why bother protesting? (Not his words; mine.) Thus it has become a formal position of the Republican party (like the Democrats) with little to no dissent. I cannot help remembering the outrage (properly so) by religious conservatives over President Bush tapping his pro-choice left-leaning friend Harriet Miers for U.S. Supreme Court justice; so much so Bush was forced to retreat. I expect the same would happen were there a platform fight at a convention over abortion or gay marriage. But when it came to selling out Israel, virtual silence.

            The question I have is a rhetorical why? Texas delegate to the 2004, 2008 Republican national platform writing committee, Cathie Adams, fought against the two state solution. She fought valiantly alone. Adams put me in touch with the David Barton, Texas delegate to the 2012 national platform writing committee. Why did Romney send his surrogate Senator Jim Talent to Tampa (August 2012) to fight conservatives for the Palestinian cause against Israel? What is going on behind the scenes that we don’t know?

        Unless they were killed by the Nazis, in which case it was their own fault, until after the war was over and we in the west were SHOCKED over things we had been told about for years before and during the war, and had chosen not to believe because it made us uncomfortable. Then it was the fault of the Nazis, who were an aberration in history who sprang from nowhere and went back to nowhere, nevermind their religious, political and cultural roots in Europe and the many willing to carry on their work. And of course shame on those Jews who went to their deaths like sheep instead of fighting back the way the evil Israelis do now.

  • Bamaguje

    “The entire peace process rested on the lie that the PLO wanted to make peace” – Dan Greenfield.

    The entire ‘peace process’ is based on willful denial and deliberate mis-characterization of the Arab-Israeli conflict as a territorial dispute, rather than simply Muslim intolerance of the only non-Muslim nation in the Middle east, which Muslims consider Dar-ul Islam (Muslim territory).

    Palestinians already have their state (Jordan) as per the 1922 partition of British mandated Palestine which gave them lion share (77%). They could have had another state in 1947, but Arabs rejected any arrangement with a Jewish state in the area… because the conflict is really about Islamic Jew hatred.

    And because the politically correct see-no-Jihad Muslim-appeasing dhimmis like Kerry refuse to acknowledge the root cause of the conflict (Islamic antisemitism), they keep on chasing shadows of illusory peace.

    Israel has done everything to bring peace, however her enemies will not be satisfied, until she is destroyed…which will never happen. Kerry should resign, he shows an incredible lack of knowledge of history, peace agreements that were broken by the Plo, why past wars were fought, and the outcomes. Forcing a Palestinian State, and dividing Jerusalem will bring Armageddon, dividing God’s Holy city, The Capital of Israel is going to be a curse to anyone who tries to do so! This is the same administration that allows Iran to continue to enrich uranium and build a nuclear arsenal..

    The Big Lie meme came into being because of Hitler’s propaganda in Mein Kampf, a subject that has been much misunderstood. Hitler never bragged about lying to the masses: it was his “Jewish” competition that lied to them to convert them to communism/finance capital.

  • Pepe Turcon

    Actually we (including Israelis and Arabs) are indeed very glad this pantomime called peace plan is over. Realpolitik should prevail and it’s to be peace in the field or war in the field. The Israelis are prepared for both. Me personally….I would like to see Israel Nuke Iran and make sure the whole world know, whoever fools around with Israel will be nuked. Then you will see real peace at work.

    • Randy Townsend

      Force is the only tactic the Arabs understand and respect. Israel will do just fine.

  • Wolfthatknowsall

    Spot on analysis, Daniel.

    Kerry’s off-camera statements show where his “mind” is at, on the “peace process” that never existed. Given a choice between a one state solution where Palestinians are “second-class citizens”, subject to “Apartheid” … I’ve already heard people on the internet talking of “apart-hate” …, and a one state solution where the Jewish states ceases to exist, he chooses the latter. Since he knows that neither are possible, he’s advocates the two-state solution, with Israel giving up half of Jerusalem and the West Bank, and having no security.

    And so, the big lie must be touted as the “truth”, and pursued no matter the consequences …

    The main problem with the Peace Lobby is that it contains too many Jews. Without the numerous influential Jews in the Peace Lobby it would not exist.

  • Walter Sieruk

    It’s not so much the question “Was Muhammad a prophet?” It’s better stated “Was Muhammad a prophet sent by God or was Muhammad a false prophet sent by Satan to lead many people astray?” After all Jesus did warn “Beware of false prophet which comes to you in sheep’s clothing but are inwardly ravening wolves.” Matthew 7:15. The Bible further warns that “many false prophets are gone forth into the world.” First John 4:1. To give the acid test if a prophet, teacher, or religion is teaching truth of falsehoods is if the prophet, teacher or religion has teaching and doctrines that are in according to God’s Word, the Bible. That if a person or religion has teachings and doctrines that are in contradiction to God’s Word then that prophet, teacher or religion is false. As Isaiah 8:20. explains “To the law of the testimony : If they speak not according to the word , it is because there is no light in them.” [KJV] Islam denies that Jesus is the Son of God. This is in contrast to the Bible which teaches that Jesus is indeed the Son of God, John 3:16, 17, and 36. First John 2:22, 23. Likewise. Islam denies that Jesus is God the Son. In contrast to Islam the Bible teaches that Jesus is God the God. As seen in Hebrews 1:6-8 with emphasis on verse 8. Furthermore, Islam denies that Jesus is God. This is in strong contradiction to the Bible which teaches that Jesus is God. As shown, for example, in John 1:1-3. Romans 9:5. Colossians 1:15-17. First John 5:20. Second Peter 1; 1. Titus 2:13. Moreover, by comparing the Old Testament with the New Testament will further show that Jesus is God, As in by comparing Isaiah 45:22,23. With Philippians 2:5-11. Will show Jesus is God. Also by comparing Psalm 89:8,9. With Matthew 8:23-27 will further confirm Jesus to be God. Even by comparing the New Testament book together will confirm Jesus to be God. As in John 5:22 with Romans 14:12 will show Jesus to be God. The list can go on but this should be enough. The imams and mullahs will try to “explain” this all away by claiming that Christians had corrupted the Bible through time. This claim greatly underestimates the power of God to preserve His Word in time and keep it intact and away from the corruption of men. In conclusion, Muhammad was a false prophet and Islam is a false religion, Proverbs 14:12. John 14:6.

    “Big lies don’t always start out big. They don’t even always start out as lies.”

    Big lies seem to have a progressive quality. Sometimes the biggest lies start out as honest efforts, such as trying to bring peace, but like the civil rights movement, women’s movement, gay rights movement, environmental movement, etc., they get hijacked by those who see every collective human effort as a fulcrum from which they can leverage power. The biggest lie is that the “Peace Lobby” has morphed into the Genocidal War Lobby, with both the Left and the Muslims contributing the lobbyists.

    Kerry’s use of the word “apartheid” in describing one of Israel’s two inexorable destinies was a great seal on the tomb of Israeli/Palestinian peace. It was also a momentum accelerator for Kerry’s ordained alternate destiny for Israel — destruction of the jewish state.

    Kerry’s choice of words and Obama’s anti-Israel bias have given further license to those who have stated that they don’t want peace, but war. Now the Palestinians, the Iranians, Al Queda, et al. will harp on the apartheid theme ad nauseam, using it for moral justification, and making any pretense of a peace deal even more preposterous than it already was (if that is even possible).

    If there was a Nobel War Prize, Kerry would win it hands down. Since “peace” is ultimately a euphemism for war in the lexicon of the Left and Islam, Kerry will probably get his Nobel stamped validation of perfidy.

            This is the barrel you keep scraping the bottom of, if you get a drift.

            So, apart from scraping the barrel for a long, long time, what is wrong with you? I find nothing wrong with this picture.

      What a treasure trove of articles at your Jew-hating troll site. I now know how to tell whether my congressman is a traitor who has sold himself to Israel, learned how the New World Order was pleged to Jews in the 1940s, and how Jews are stealing America’s resources.
      Nice to know what kind of people are supporting Rand Paul.

    Traitor John Kerry and Comrade Obama both know that the “Palestinians” are not going to accept and make peace with Israel,ever. This whole matter(charade) is just their way of engineering a disconnect between the US and Israel. That will deprive Israel of US support,intel data,and rearming the next time the muslims begin another war of extermination with Israel. this is all to isolate Israel entirely,to remove their last consistent ally,the US.

    There will never be peace between Israel and any Islamic Arab Nation . As they Islamic Arabs believe that they are superior to Christians and Jews and believe that they have the right to kill them or lie to them when they can’t or are not strong enough to kill them. When Arabs do not have Christians or Jews to Kill then they kill one another. Sunis kill Shia and Shia kill Sunis. Both will kill salifists or alowites and the previous 2 will kill any of the others. Anyone who believes the Madhi lives in a well in Qom has to have stayed out in the sun to long and cooked their brains. Libs who believe that treaties between Arab Islamists and Jewish or Christian Nations are even crazier than the Arab Islamists are.

    Over the years, Israel has learned the US is a fair-weather friend. Obama has given the Jews that have supported us the back of his hand while dropping to his knees for Arabs that hate us. There’s an old saying: “If the Arabs would lay down their guns, there would be peace in the Middle East. If Israel laid down their guns, there would be no more Israel.” Israel knows full well how to deal with the Arabs and, over the past 6 years, they’ve learned how to deal with Obama. “Inept” is too light a word to describe what sits in our White House these days.

    “…the big peace lie has become too big to fail.” This line alone would make this one of the most interesting and useful articles ever written on the subject of “the peace process” [sic].

  • Jeff Ludwig

    I keep going back to the Book of Jeremiah (Hebrew Scriptures). Jeremiah is best known for his saying, “Peace, peace when there is no peace.” He was referring to the phony peace that Zedekiah and Jehoiakim were trying to create by striking an alliance with the Egyptians to defend themselves against the Babylonians. They were going to bring (sic) peace. But Jeremiah brought the unpleasant and prophetic news to the power elite (the king and the priests) that their peace was a lie. It was not a peace brokered by Almighty God. He was/is the chief player.
    For his trouble, Jeremiah was tortured, mocked, and threatened. He finally had to eat humble pie, and said to his tormentor, something to the effect “well…if you say so….,” referring to the accusation that his prophecy was false and that Almighty God did not reveal to him that Judeans would be in exile for 70 years, but only, at most for two years.
    Once released by his captors, the Lord God Almighty told Jeremiah to return to his tormentor and tell his tormentor that he would be dead within a year, and to shove it in his face that Judah will be captured by the Babylonians, but that a remnant would return after 70 years. Now, fast forward 2600 years to Mr. Greenfield’s article. The peace process so-called has been and is a lie, and for those who have ears to hear and eyes to see, the truth shall set you free. Thank you Mr. Greenfield.

    I want to see a key part of this strife – the muslim claim to the Temple Mount – which is solely based on the fable of Mohammed’s ‘night journey’ on the back of the flying winged horse (Al Burak) taken to the International Court of Justice and decided upon.

    • Gee

      Considering that Al-Aqsa Mosque was not built until long after Mohammed’s death. There was no mosques at all in Jerusalem at that time. There is no reason to even consider the matter.
      San Remo Treaty, Mandate for Palestine and the UN Charter are clear – all land west of the Jordan River belong to the Jews

        “Considering that Al-Aqsa Mosque was not built until long after Mohammed’s death. There was no mosques at all in Jerusalem at that time. There is no reason to even consider the matter.”

        “Al Aqsa is an Islamic mosque located in Jerusalem, Its literal meaning”الأقصى” is the farthest mosque (The farthest mosque from Makkah”

        In other words, the mosque referred to in the dream was simply the furthest mosque and they named that Jerusalem mosque after the fact in order to attract tourism from hajis.

    “And now all that’s left is protecting the lie…” How true , and this applies to everything else they lie about, too.
    You can just as accurately say “The big Social Justice lie killed the justice it was lying about”. Or, “the big Hope and Change lie killed the hope and change it was lying about”. Their entire existence is based on lies that are destroying us.

    As Efraim Karsh explains here why should the PLO want peace when stalling, lies and phony gestures will bring the leaders fame and fortune?

    Arafat created the mold and it was clear from his actions that ‘peace’ was the last thing on his mind.

    Ever since the PLO has followed precisely the same pattern and the powerful nodding dogs of world opinion have not only allowed the charade but actually promoted it via demonisation of Israel and worse, injecting massive funding into the bottomless keptocratic treasuries of these people.

    Here’s what he says…..

    Enriching themselves via self-inflicted plight: Understanding the Palestinian Arab strategy

    Posted: 28 Apr 2014 11:01 PM PDT

    The eminent historian Professor Efraim Karsh, in a paper published yesterday, asks a question that, if it were answered honestly, would go far in explaining the obsessive attachment of the Palestinian Arabs to violence and terror.

    Not only that, but also why their leadership is so stable, so unchanging, so undemocratic, so able to preside for generations over close-to-zero tangible progress for their people, and so willing to do so.

    Some brief extracts from “Running Away from Statehood, Again”:

    The “historic” agreement of last week between the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) and Hamas, to form a united government casts a serious doubt not only on the Palestinian leadership’s commitment to a two-state solution, but also on its interest in the attaining of statehood at all.

    Not that this should have come as a surprise to anyone. For nearly a century, Palestinian leaders never have missed an opportunity to impede the development of Palestinian civil society and the attainment of Palestinian statehood.

    Why should the Palestinians engage in the daunting tasks of nation-building and state creation if they can have their hapless constituents run around in circles for nearly a century while they bask in international sympathy and enrich themselves from the proceeds of their self-inflicted plight?’

      I say give it to those ragheads in spades, let them have their jihad and finally Israel can do away with them once and for all time.

    Is it possible that kerry is a more repugnant, loathsome, ignorant and thoroughly impossible to like imbecile than his leader, obama? Is that possible?
