Kerry‘s ‘Peace Process’ Ghost to Haunt Washington on Tuesday

Kerry can come out smelling sweet and let Israel and the PA blow up next week’s return of the ghost of direct talks Then he could end the travesty. But he wants to stink up the place with a decayed corpse of the peace process.

The ghost of direct talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority is scheduled to pay a visit in Washington on Tuesday under a cloak of secrecy, which is bound to be violated by both sides.

False claims and trial balloons have become a trademark of the jockeying by Israeli and PA leaders as well as the State Dept. since direct talks broke off nearly three years ago.

Palestinian Authority negotiator Saeb Erekat, two days after categorically saying he would not attend the talks without commitments by Israel, reportedly will meet on Tuesday with his Israel counterparts, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s emissary Yitzchak Molcho and Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, who also won the boogey prize as Peace Process Minister by a different name.

Never allowing himself a chance to grab a headline, Regional Cooperation Minister Silvan Shalom told reporters Thursday, “There is a good chance that negotiations with the Palestinians will resume next week in Washington on Tuesday, provided there are no last-minute complications.”

During a visit to Jericho where he and  Palestinian Authority minister signed a declaration to back a long-delayed industrial park, Shalom claimed Israel has not given in to the condition laid down by chairman Mahmoud Abbas that Israel freeze construction on land claimed by the PA.

The Al-Ahram Egyptian weekly reported this week that its sources said the  time frame of the talks will be 6-9 months. There will be no conditions, but Jordan will join the task when it comes to discussing the status of Jerusalem and final borders.

The Palestinian Authority claims it has not conceded anything and is waiting to see what will be discussed at the meeting planned for Tuesday.

In a counter-claim, Jewish Home Minister Naftali insists that construction is continuing as usual in Judea and Samaria and in parts of Jerusalem that were occupied by Jordan before  the Six-Day War in 1967.

Unofficially, building for Jews has come to a standstill outside major Jewish population centers.

The first item on the agenda next week, if the talks are held, is the release of 82 terrorists, most of them convicted for murdering or being involved in planning attacks that murdered Jews.

The Cabinet likely will be asked to agree to release the terrorists towards the end of the Muslim holy month  of Ramadan, which the Palestinian Authority and rest of the of Arab world has celebrated with unending anti-Semitic movies, television programs and sermons. There has not been one major release of terrorists that has not been followed with their returning to their favorite hobby of killing Jews. But every Israeli government always has been more concerned with winning a good word for a ghetto mentality than for keeping the country secure.

Both Israel and the Palestinian Authority have said that if any final agreement is ever signed, it must be approved by a public referendum, which both the PA and Israel probably pray will never happen.

    Is no one bored with the situation?, Kerry "guarantees" the peace process, he doesn't now that the US "guarantees" since 1948, than why Jordan with the help of the UK invaded the West Bank and the US "guantees" did nothing, it is a farce and is bored, allways the same situation, the best Kerry stay home and don't disturb and make a mess again.

  2. This is God’s land and God allow’s no one to give it away. Iran continues unwavering on it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons and Assad the dictator of Syria is still in power. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Assad of Syria has allegedly used chemical weapons against his own people and has targeted Tel-Aviv with his missiles. If this situation does not drastically change soon for the better, I believe the war in Isaiah Chapter 17 will likely take place. Damascus Syria would be destroyed. The worlds economy would likely collapse as a result and could usher in a one world government movement. I wrote a small 6 page book that outlines what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.

    Why the world and the show media are screaming to Israel about the occupied PA territories (Jerusalem and the West Bank), the reality has the world and the show media has to scream to Jordan in behalf the UK whic they occupied Jerusalem and the West Bank throwing the jews and the US as "Garantor", they should negotiate, that is Jondan, the UK and US as "Garantor" and make the big desision that the Palestinian has to go out from East Jerusalem and the West Bank, so will finally will come the peace in this region, it is a utopy, no that is reality, Israel has nothing to do with this desision only Jorda, the UK and the US.

  4. Jerusalem belongs to Israel, her line of ancient Kings. The so called Palestinians only got there through the wars of the Crusades less than 900 years ago. Abbas is blackmailing viz a viz 82 killers, EU hasn't a clue and Kerry is blowing his own trumpet. Frankly I'm bored with this french farce of Peace talks…. a waste of time. Livni is an idealist and cannot take the long view and as for occupation a load of BS. The Occupiers are made up of both legal and illegal Muslim arabs, who have no rights to Jerusalem, wonder if someone will be smart enough to have a go at Mecca, the Holy meteor from outer space. Freeze talks they will achieve nothing at all.

  5. So, if they sign a peace treaty, how long will that last?
    Remember that Arafat signed a peace treaty (was awarded the Nobel peace prize,) then strted the Intifada which resulted in hundreds of deaths.

    Any "peace treaty" signed by the Arabs is not even worth the dry ink on the paper.

    They will never honour any peace treataies.
    How many more peace treaties will be signed with no meaning at all?
    Time for the world to wake up and support Israel. Israel is the country which was attacked from day one by the "peace loving" Arabs.
    In all these years, Israel has had to fight for it's existance.
    If the Arabs want peace, then "show that you want peace, and stop your teaching children to hate, stop your hate TV programmes.
    Stop the imamas from preaching hatred."
