Abu in a Suitabbas has refused to meet in direct talks with Israel because the Jewish nation, though it stupidly froze Jewish construction in Judea and Samaria (Arabs can of course build all they want...especially if the building is illegal), continues with construction in Jerusalem, Israel's capital. The little Abu that couldn't is still pitching a hissy about this, but now has the political cover to continue the sham of "peace talks" with American drones.
Arutz-7 reports that the shuttle diplomacy between the Arabs and Jews will continue until
Israel meets the Arab demands in their entirety, at which point Abbas will be allowed to agree to direct talks with Israel.
That's right. Only Israel must meet anyone's demands. The call for the ending of incitement against Jews in the press and Arab schools, which Marack Pajama threw around as the bone to curry favor with American Jewish leaders, is nowhere to be found. And, shockingly, there is also no demand on the Arabs to halt terror activity which, since the Netanyahu government stupidly opened roadblocks and removed checkpoints, has increased dramatically. Fire bombings, sniper fire, stabbings, drive-by shootings, and murders have been on the increase, some committed with American weapons, but there is no call for that to end under this Arab League initiative. It's tailor made for Blowbama the Jew hater. This US backed initiative puts the burden on Israel to compromise itself and its sovereignty over what has been the capital of the Jewish nation for 3000 years (still thinking the US government is heap big friend of Israel?).
And naturally Syria and Hamas rejected the decision completely.
And what is the Israeli Prime Minister's reaction? The meat head hopes negotiations can now move forward. Whatever. The only thing moving over this is my bowel.
Just to give you an idea as to how futile this is, and what the Arab League is really up to, Amr Moussa, Secretary General of the Arab League said they consented to this move
"despite the lack of conviction in the seriousness of the Israeli side… to facilitate the U.S. role.''
That's rich coming from an organization that fails to recognize the right of the Jewish nation to exist. This would all be hilarious if it wasn't so utterly pathetic. This is all about continuing to put the weak secular government under pressure to capitulate to national suicide, and nothing more.
This shuttle diplomacy charade was approved for a four month period. What a coincidence. That's just around the time the so-called "construction freeze" is supposed end. So I would imagine that as this four month period ends the Arab/US call to continue the freeze would be heard loud and clear. Perhaps Bibi will say something profound like the parties are on the verge of a breakthrough...if we just freeze a little longer...or even kick some Jews out of their homes.
Hmm...I wonder if anything will come from the Likud Central Committee debate on March 18th?
