What right has a UN official, a civil servant, if you will, to announce what’s the best outcome for the two sides? A bit presumptuous, don’t you think?
So far, we’ve asked the Arab citizens of Israel if they wished to become proud citizens of the future Palestinian State, and they gave such a shriek, you could hear them in both Jerusalem and Ramallah. How does Jan Eliasson know that the Arabs of the PA want a state? Did he ask them?
“The Secretary-General and I urge all in the international community to work together to translate the solidarity and desire for peace expressed on this occasion into positive action for security and for justice,” Eliasson said. OK, I support that – but why does it have to be strictly through a Palestinian state? And why should it involve the destruction of the lives of tens, if not hundreds of thousands of Jewish civilians?
I warned you this stuff was difficult.
If I were Mrs. Levy, I’d take my newly gotten permit to the nearest construction guy and get something going. Because should eternal peace come before she gets that roof in place, she, like the rest of us, will be left out in the rain.Yori Yanover
