The namby-pamby, kowtowing to Bambi Prime Minister of Israel said:
"There was general agreement, including on the part of the Palestinians, that the peace process has to be resumed as soon as possible with no preconditions."
Hey dummy...remember that speech you gave at Bar Ilan where you gave five preconditions to a PA terror state? Let me refresh your memory:
- Israel has defensible borders (meaning no Auchwitz Lines of 1967).
- Jerusalem remains the undivided capital of Israel (nothing for the Arabs).
- The Falacstinians get to have the refugees.
- The PA state is unarmed.
- The Arabs must unequivocally accept Israel as a Jewish nation; the eternal homeland of the Jewish people.
Now apparently some members of the Israeli media are applauding because no preconditions means no need for a settlement freeze. What a triumph for Bibi!
Wrong. We're talking about the Neighborhood Bully, the rules don't apply to him.
Abu in a Suit told the press:
"In today's meetings we confirmed our positions and commitment to the road map and its implementation. We also demanded that the Israeli side fulfill its commitments on settlements, including on natural growth.
"As for resuming talks, this depends on a definition of the negotiating process that means basing them on recognizing the need to withdraw to the 1967 borders and ending the occupation, as was discussed with the previous Israeli government when we defined the occupied territories as the West Bank, Gaza and Jerusalem.
"This was reiterated in the talks with President Obama and in the trilateral talks. We believe the American administration will review the positions of the two sides in the coming weeks to make it possible for us to renew peace talks based on our stated position."
So the PA commitment to the Highway To Hell Map is continuing to advocate the destruction of Israel? I mean, that is what Fatah agreed to in Beit Lechem this summer.
So, what can we take away from this stage of the fiasco? The Arabs have come out with their preconditions, while Bibi gave all his away. Now, Bibi could now say that Abbas has violated the spirit of the meeting by coming out with a pile of preconditions to the no preconditions talks. And Marack, if he wasn't an Israel bashing Jew hater, could say that this kind of talk from Abbas is counterproductive, and the White House could start pressuring the Arabs. But...say it with me...monkeys will fly out of my butt first.
No, the door is now open for the White House to back Abbas' position. And apparently the settlement freeze talks are still on. So, once again, the rules only apply to Israel.
But don't take my word for it. Yoram Ettinger agrees with me completely. Concessions and playing nice are very very bad for Israel.
Bibi should have kicked them both in the nuts. Especially in light of the fact that Marack took Iran's drive for the bomb off the agenda at his Little Lord Fraudleroy session leading of the UNSC...a move made two weeks ago. The conventional wisdom has been that Bibi is caving in the hopes of getting the White House green light (which Israel does not need) to bomb Iran's nuclear program back to the Stone Age.
Bibi should have kicked them both in the nuts.
