"There is no difference between a settlement in the West Bank and a so-called neighborhood in east Jerusalem," said Hatem Abdel Qader, who until recently served as PA minister for Jerusalem affairs. "In both cases we are talking about territories that were occupied in the 1967 war."
In both cases we are talking about territories that were controlled by Jordan, and not a non-existent Palestine, because the Arabs rejected the formation of the state. But these ninnies are going to keep up the bullshit, aren't they? You rejected a state and Israel. Your Arab pals lost the war. You abdicated your rights and now you're fucked. Sucks doesn't it? But now comes Marack, hero of the genocidal PA, hero of the Jihadis. As long as the response to their bitching is going to be the summoning of Israel's ambassador why shouldn't the PA start making claims on everything else? A PA official remarked, "Why not try? It might work."
Again, the time has come to disengage the United States on the settlement negotiations. Israel has made its terms known. The United States can either choose to accept that or not, but if they don't then it's no PA state for Marack to put on his resume. Any further talk with George Mitchell, Hillary Clinton, or Marack on this subject will only increase the PA appetite for more demands. Stop wasting your time!
The Jerusalem game, thanks to Marack, and Israel not stopping this course last month, is afoot. PA Prime Minister Salaam Fayad has made himself Minister of Jerusalem Affairs and has pledged to invest millions in Jerusalem. It is his feeling that Israel is attempting to alter the facts on the ground by creating Jewish majorities in Arab neighborhoods. Never mind that the Sheikh Jarrah project is open to purchase by anyone, be they Jewish or not. And wasn't Fayad recently in Aspen telling everyone how Jews would be allowed to live in the new PA state? So what's the big deal? Oh wait...you were just blowing it out your ass. My bad.
Here are the facts on the ground Salaam. Israel has annexed Jerusalem and reclaimed it as her capital. The government has said it will not be divided and will remain Israel's capital. Your chance for a state, with Jerusalem, has been offered three times, and rejected by you three times (four if you count the Jordanian occupation when no one gave one shit about creating your precious state). The time for deal making is over. You blew it. You chose hate and genocide. You reap what you sew.
