Kerry Names Oslo-Defender Indyk to Direct Peace Talks

Every US “peace process” mediator has failed. Martin Indyk is next in line. He has said Israel must cede the Temple Mount and the PA must give up the “right of return.” If he succeeds, expect war.

One black mark against Indyk from the Palestinian Authority side is that he is Jewish.

Indyk wrote in his book, “The fact that I had begun my Washington career eleven years earlier working at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC, often referred to as ‘the Israel lobby’)  only reinforced the image in much of the Arab world and among pro-Arab Americans that Clinton’s policy had been taken over by a Jewish cabal.

“Behind that stereotyping lay the reality that our Jewish identities generated a deep desire in all of us to make peace since we all believed that Israel’s security depended  on ending the conflict with its Arab neighbors and that American interests would be well served by doing so.”

Indyk forgot to mention that he is a director of the left-wing New Israel Fund, which does everything it can to dilute the Jewish identity in Israel  and promotes getting Jews out of Judea and Samaria.

The trap for Indyk , and Kerry, and for Israeli negotiator Tzipi Livni, and for everyone else involved in the “process’ is that their personal need to succeed makes it a foregone conclusion that Israel is going to have to concede on everything except the forced immigration of foreign Arabs. He wrote in his book that he feels a “personal responsibility” for the failures of the peace process.

In order to reach their goal, U.S. mediators look at the facts with blinders and pre-conceived notions, such as defending Oslo.

The Zionist Organization of American noted last week, after it was clear that Indyk would take over the direct talks, that in 2007, he told a Congressional sub-committee that Abbas “has met all of the requirements, including removing, once he became president, ending the incitement of Israel in the Palestinian media and beginning the process of dealing with the demonization of Israel in Palestinian curricula. “

The ZOA added, “Unfortunately, Indyk’s claims were — and remain to this day —  at variance with the reality of continuing demonization of Israel in the PA media, mosques, schools and youth camps. Only the month before making these false, laudatory statements about Abbas, Abbas told a Fatah rally that, ‘We have a legitimate right to direct our guns against Israeli occupation … Our rifles, all our rifles, are directed against The Occupation.’ “Moreover, since making those remarks, Abbas has publicly lauded Jew-killing terrorists like the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine’s George Habash and Hamas’ Shekih Ahmed Yassin; personally sheltered wanted terrorists in his Ramallah presidential compound, including Khaled Shawish, wanted by Israel for the murder of 19 Israelis; and personally congratulated the ghoulish terrorist Samir Kuntar upon his release by Israel, for which Abbas’ Fatah also  organized celebrations.”

    Is there any common sense left in the world? Maybe left wasn't a good word at this time?

    Let's all pray to Hashem to save us from the plots of our enemies just as He saved us from Bilaam the rasha and many other Israel and Jew haters.

  3. iNDYK in yiddish is a TURKEY an appropriate description of Martin. A good friend of the Palestinians and self doubter of the Jews.

  4. I was doing some thinking the other day about this whole Palestinian – Israel situation and I think I came up with a simple but effective plan. When the Prime Minister or whoever from Israel shows up for "peace talks," they should have a legal, binding, document prepared, handing over Israel to the Palestinians. What is great about this idea is everyone will be happy with it. The Obama administration gets to advance his pro Arab agenda. The Palestinians will finally have a place to call their own, and Netanyahu, Peres, and others will have the opportunity to bask in the glory of public opinion, that's what is most important to them. Then we can finally stop having these endless "peace talks." Also, there will be no need to discuss a two state solution because there will be only one state left. As a bonus, I would not stop at releasing one hundred and four Palestinian terrorists, why not go for broke and release them all. The Israeli government can provide them with weapons and strategy to kill as many Israelis as they can before the Palestinians take over. If Israel is so intent on killing themselves, my plan will do the job. Now that I am thinking about it, why wait, they could start releasing every terrorist now. It will take time for the Israeli government to properly equip them with the weapons, strategy, and financial backing. This way the terrorists can get started. There is no need to travel all the way to Washington, they could do it right where they are and set up a deadline for the Palestinians to take over. I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner.

    Kerry needs a Bible . Then he would know he has got it completely wrong . Pathetic man . To think he can stop the plans of the LORD . Shalom Brother

  6. 5 million arabs being flooded into Israel is a revelation to me, which shows I was not following the peace talks closely enough at the time – as stated Israel would no longer be in existence. I understand L. Kauderer's comment only too well, Israel stop selling yourself down the river. Disagree, freeze these pointless talks, in my opinion Israel's is better off going to war, knocking 60,000 rockets targeted on Southern Israel, as a gesture to the people of Israel, every terrorist no matter how long imprisoned be executed, since this is the law – death penalty for treason against Israel and her people. All these acts of terrorism were carried out on Israeli soil therefore Israeli law should have prevailed and to hell with the so called palestinians. They are aping the ancient right of the Judaic peoples to return to their homeland. AL AQSA is NOT respected by arabs it is just another excuse for putting up the middle finger to Israel. Obama is not President of Israel or PM. Obama and the US are simply protecting their OIL imports the fg arabs know it and are using the west to destroy Israel. War is the only solution to this crisis with arabs, OIL and the US.

  7. I hope BN is shrewder than his opponents, there has to be a loop hole, pray he finds it. I'm here in Europe fuming at not only the drip Ashton in Egypt who absolutely do not want the MB running the show. Iran and Saudi are equally controlling the US it is damn OIL again. Take out the oil fields as Saddam did back in the '90's, his first target Kuwait, and of course the US came running how could she keep her electorate quiet if they couldn't run their gaz guzzling cars, there'd be a civil war in the States.

    Without a Jewish Temple on Moriah there can be no deal. Ezekiel records the blueprint of that Temple and it will be next to the Dome of the rock…

  9. Franc Baneli says:

    G-D judges us for trying to divide His land and people. There are alot of Notzrim here in the US sickened by our meddling over the last 30 years. We pray for your peace and safety. G-D will show his strength through his Son at the 11th hour.
