This is the biggest of the problems

Oct 03, 2011 Published under Israel, Mideast Negotiations, Palestine

Settlements are a HUGE obstacle to achieving a resolution to the conflict. Daunting. Must be condemned.

But this, below, is the biggest obstacle – Palestinians’ refusal to come to terms with a finality of the conflict and the need to accept co-existence with Israel as a Jewish State (or pluralistic homeland or whatever you want to call it as long as you don’t delude yourself trying to think you will destroy it in stages).  Without that, no change will come, and no peace or prosperity or safe or quiet future for either side will come.

Fatah Central Committee Member Abbas Zaki Calls Netanyahu and Obama "Scumbags" and Says: "The Greater Goal Cannot Be Accomplished in One Go"


Following are excerpts from an interview with Abbas Zaki, member of the Fatah Central Committee, which aired on the Al-Jazeera network on September 23, 2011.

Abbas Zaki: The settlement should be based upon the borders of June 4, 1967. When we say that the settlement should be based upon these borders, President [Abbas] understands, we understand, and everybody knows that the greater goal cannot be accomplished in one go.

If Israel withdraws from Jerusalem, evacuates the 650,000 settlers, and dismantles the wall – what will become of Israel? It will come to an end.


Who is nervous, upset, and angry now? Netanyahu, Lieberman, and Obama… All those scumbags. Why even get into this? We should be happy to see Israel upset.


If we say that we want to wipe Israel out… C’mon, it’s too difficult. It’s not [acceptable] policy to say so. Don’t say these things to the world. Keep it to yourself.
