The Palestine Papers prove beyond a doubt that every party in the room has blood on their hands. The needless bloodshed needs to stop now! Many are clasping their hands proclaiming that the ‘Peace Process’ is dead… bullshit! The current cast of ‘bad faith’ actors needs to be replaced! Israel is a Sovereign nation and responsible for their’s, but, the US and the PA/Fatah actors should exit stage left. The UN needs to step in and replace every IOF soldier in the OPT, along the Gaza Wall, and, in Gazan waters with a Blue Helmet…!
The UN needs to force Israel to withdraw the IOF fully within the ’67 borders. Allow the UN to run the ‘blockade’. Have the UN mediate the Settler/Palestinian disputes, seriously, that would provide much needed breathing space for real Peace to occur…!
Now, let’s look at the current tempest in the Middle East Teapot…
First, with the release of the Palestine Papers, Abu Mazen has been exposed for what he is…
Saeb Erekat fears for his life… rather understandable considering…!
Of which, he also adamantly denies…
PLO chief negotiator Saeb Erekat says leaked documents show how passionately Palestinians want peace
Basically, from the time that the ‘free’ and ‘just’ elections (Carter claimed it was the cleanest elections he’s seen) that swept Hamas into power in both Gaza and the West Bank in 2006, Fatah and the PA had to wing it… Namely by taking up MI-6′s recommendations…
• Internment and replacement of imams among measures
• Document proposed ‘direct lines’ to Israeli intelligence
• New files reveal Israel requested assassination of militant
Leaked documents underline hostility of PLO towards Hamas – but show Palestinian leadership willing to negotiate in long run
Now, interestingly, with the subsequent demise of Ben Ali in Tunisia, which Obama apparently endorses, and the recent flight of Gamal Mubarak…
Gamal Mubarak, the son and putative successor of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, fled to London on Wednesday morning.
The plane with Gamal Mubarak, his wife and daughter on board left for London Tuesday from an airport in western Cairo, the website Akhbar al-Arab said.
The report came as violent unrest broke out in Cairo and other Egyptian cities and hundreds of thousands of people reportedly took to the streets in a Tunisia-inspired day of revolt.
The protesters want Egyptian government to end its 30-year state of emergency and pass a law preventing a president from serving more than two terms, and want the Interior Minister Habib al-Adly to resign.
It would appear that Foggy Bottom is still clueless…
…U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also said that the United States believed that the government of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, in power for three decades, was stable and looking for ways to meet the Egyptian people’s aspirations.
“We support the fundamental right of expression and assembly for all people and we urge that all parties exercise restraint and refrain from violence,” Clinton told reporters in response to a question at a news conference.
“Our assessment is that the Egyptian government is stable and is looking for ways to respond to the legitimate needs and interests of the Egyptian people,” she added.
That House of Cards is collapsing…
Police have clashed with anti-government protesters in two major Egyptian cities following Tuesday’s unprecedented protests.
Police broke up a demonstration in central Cairo, beating protesters with batons.
Demonstrators also gathered in the eastern city of Suez. Meanwhile security officials said at least 500 people had been arrested in a crackdown against the protests
Hmmm… Pass the popcorn…
