Tamarod Gaza: Israel-PLO Talks Better than Hamas-PLO

Which means that Israel has conceded a great deal during the process.

The Tamarod Gaza movement, meant to topple Hamas, now has 45,000 Facebook fans and has been getting more media coverage lately.

A message they released today is refreshing in its honesty.

The PLO has negotiated with the Zionist enemy at some length (twenty years) and the negotiations did not reach the desired goal, but it has made ​​some achievements in the political field and there are those who see it and there are those who do not want to see … a piece of land called Gaza and more the West Bank [are under Palestinian control] and [many countries and the UN] recognize the State of Palestine on paper, etc….

Here, a question arises: over seven years now of the obnoxious division between Fatah and Hamas, they have been negotiating to end the division and they did not achieve anything tangible! How many years they need to negotiate to end the division???

While Tamarod is as anti-Israel as anyone, this is the first time I have seen any Arab, let alone a Palestinian, admit that the Oslo process has helped the PLO achieve enormous gains both politically and in concrete terms. Even the Western media portrays the “peace process” as something that has been at a deadlock forever with Israel often being the party blamed for no progress – but here, in Arabic, at least one group acknowledges (in a backhanded manner) that the PLO has gained a great deal through the process.

Which means that Israel has conceded a great deal during the process.

The PLO? They have given up nothing tangible. Their major party Fatah still says, today, that they have not abandoned “armed struggle” and terror – and it is still part of their platform.

It is interesting that it takes an Arab group to point out what so few Westerners are willing to admit as they continue to blame Israel for everything.

    We Just Don’t Get It, do we? … Its not a territorial dispute. (For Them) … Its a Mission From “God”.

  2. Tim Upham says:

    The Tamarod Gaza Movement seeks to overthrow Hamas. It shows that the people of Gaza are getting fed up with Hamas, and their paranoid and xenophobic policies. A recent Palestinian poll shows Hamas as having only 20% of the support of the Palestinian people. The Tamarod Gaza Movement should be supported.

  3. Tim Upham says:

    Elder of Ziyon coverage of the Tamarod Gaza Movement is vastly different than that of "The Times of Israel." But with Elder of Ziyon does not everybody hate the Jews? Our identity should be built on victimhood.
