BETTER LATE…

PA Envoy: Jews God’s Children, Forget the 2-States…

Of course, given the organizers and the source, this was all said in bitter, bitter irony.
Palestinian Ambassador to the U.K. Manuel Hassassian

That’s because, according to Hague, the situation requires the United States to take the lead because of its unique ability to influence the Israelis. “If we don’t make progress in the coming year,” Hague said, “people will be increasingly convinced that a two-state solution is impossible.”

Imagine that.

Of course, Hassassain claimed that Israel was the reason for the failure of peace to be reached,–rather than blaming the boldfaced intransigence of the Palestinian Authority towards peace negotiations, the outright violation of the Oslo accords by applying unilaterally for statehood at the UN, or—my personal favorite—the continued terrorist activities of Hamas and Fatah.

Finally, recalling the 2002 and 2007 Arab Peace Initiative, and said that had Israel accepted that open hand of peace, “the flag of Israel would have been hoisted in Mecca, in Iran, in Tehran! If they had accepted. But Israel does not want peace. Israel nurtures on conflict, and the Zionist Ideology is to have the entire West Bank, the entire Palestine.”

Just to remind you, Arab Peace Initiative, initiated by the Saudis, offered normalizing relations between the entire Arab world and Israel, in exchange for a complete withdrawal from the occupied territories, including East Jerusalem, and a return of any Palestinian refugees “wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbors.”

In other words, if only Israel agreed to stop being Israel, it could enjoy the love and acceptance known only by, say, the survivors of Auschwitz…

Let’s all wait and see what President Obama has to say about all this.

  1. This b.s. about Israel has been offered peace from Saudi Arabia is making it's way in all newspaper opinion pages with the reference about refugees deleted.

  2. Yori Yanover says:

    Wikipedia has the refugees in, but it's concealed by references to UN 149 which has a lot of verbiage about good will and "should they want to come" to their old property.

    Altogether, I have never heard of another case where children of refugees are also considered refugees even if they never lived in the place — other than, of course, the Jews…

  3. the two state solutionis not slipping away at all. What never existed can't.
    slip away. There is only a one state solution. The one mandated by the League.
    of nations in 1922. All of "Palestine" east of the river jordan to the arabs.
    and all land west to be a homeland for the Jews. The U.N. incorporated
    this mandate when it formed but now choose to ignore their own decrees.

  4. Charlie Hall says:

    The problem is that no country in the Eastern Hemisphere offers automatic birthright citizenship other than Pakistan. You can be tenth generation born in Syria yet not be Syrian. (Israel has the same law.)

  5. The inclusion of Jesus in invocations is quite common as it was in the invocation for president Obama. When I was a young Rabbi, I would complain. I have come to the conclusion that this is a CHRISTIAN COUNTRY and those offering the prayers which include Christ or Jesus , just do not care what the rest of us think.. I have bowed out of the local interfaith Holocaust service, because it was a custom to include Hatikvah at the end, but now some Christian groups object as they support the Palestinians and the Muslim Imams would either sit or leave during the Hatikvah. Perhaps interfaith Holocaust programs no longer make sense, at least to me. I do not need the stress of seeing disrespect being afforded to Israel and nor do I wish to compromise by leaving Hatikvah out. This is a personal choice and I DO NOT ADVOCATE ANYONE NOT PARTICIPATING IN ANY INTERFAITH HOLOCAUST SERVICE. I INTRODUCED INTERFAITH HOLOCAUST SERVICES IN 1974 AND WAS ONE OF THE FIRST IF NOT THE FIRST TO DO SO. This was a difficult decision for me based on personal principle. The interfaith Holocaust memorials started as well intentioned way for the Jewish people and other groups to pause and reflect on man's capacity to perpetuate unbelievable cruelty against his fellow and to commiserate as a group and others, with the Jews and hopefully prevent this nightmare from reoccurring. Over the years it was understandably modified to include other victims of genocidal mass killings, though these mass killings were not really analogous, as the Nazis were obsessed at not just killing Jews as a competing group, but Hitler desired to eliminate our creed and it's pervasive influence on humanity, particularly Christian doxy. As a result of Muslim participation and twisted liberalism, this is morphing into a twisted canard where Israel is being blamed for perpetuating ethnic killings against the Palestinians as the Jews were slaughtered by the Nazis. One can understand the Islamo-Nazis belief system with a quote from the Talmud. We do not see things as they are. We see them as we are. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG, CHILD OF Holocaust survivors and a refugee born in a D.P. camp

  6. I AM CALLING FOR A NATIONAL BOYCOTT BY JEWS OF ANY INTERFAITH HOLOCAUST PROGRAM WHERE HATIKAVAH IS INTENTIONALLY EXLUDED DUE TO MUSLIM PRESSURE OR CLERGY WHO SUPPORT THE PALESTINIAN CAUSE. PLEASE GET THE WORD OUT. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG
