“On September 1, 2010, at noon, in front of the White House, Human Rights activists staged a “peace charade” skit. Its purpose was, according to their press release, to serve as a theatre parody of the “farce masquerading as [Mideast] peace talks,” currently being conducted by the U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, Palestine’s Mahmoud Abbas and Israel’s “Bibi” Netanyahu. Medea Benjamin, co-founder of CODEPINK, was the leader of the demonstration.”
No comments necessary. Here’s Netanyahu’s last words before leaving Israel for the Washington “peace” talks. This paragraph from an Al Jazeera article about Bibi Netanyahu’s perspective on the Washington peace negotiations with the Palestinians confirms their futility.
….the words of Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, today ring louder and clearer in the ears of Palestinians. “You don’t need to worry. Nobody needs to teach me what it is to love Eretz Israel,” he told Likud party members before leaving for Washington. His use of the term ‘Eretz Israel’ – meaning the land between the Mediterranean and the River Jordan – implies that he has no intention of giving up control of the West Bank and East Jerusalem and, consequently, will not allow the establishment of a sovereign Palestinian state.
In retrospect, the negotiations seem nothing more than a cover for Obama’s impotence, and the fact that he is little more at this point than Netanyahu’s poodle.
While Israel continues it colonization of Palestinian territory over the next year, get ready for another Camp David hoax.
