    Reality Check

    This a section of text from a paper produced at a recent Fatah "conference":-

    "The status of Jerusalem as the future capital of a Palestinian state is a red line that no Palestinian leader is permitted to cross" President Mahmoud Abbas' ruling Fatah faction declared in the West Bank on Saturday.

    According to Israel Radio, the Fatah General Conference, which convened in Bethlehem for a three-day gathering, adopted a position paper which also states that the Palestinian national enterprise will not reach fruition until all of Jerusalem, including the outlying villages, come under Palestinian sovereignty.

    Fatah, which rules the West Bank but was ousted from power in Gaza by the Islamist Hamas movement, also ruled out any interim agreements with Israel.

    Fatah will continue to sacrifice victims until Jerusalem will be returned [to the Palestinians], clean of settlements and settlers," the paper states.

    Finally someone tells it as it is !

    Well done Avigdor Lieberman!
    Whilst many of you do not like his politics, you have to respect a man for telling it as it is.  He faces up to the reality that we should all face up to. The Palestinians do NOT want peace with Israel, the Arabs do NOT want peace with Israel and the problem will NOT be solved in our life-time - either the Jews live in Israel or Israel is destroyed and the Arabs live there - fact.


    The last 60 years of history has shown Land For Peace does NOT work - give the Arabs an inch and they want a mile, the Arabs respect one thing only and that is strength.  Whilst Israel remains strong militarily there will be nothing to worry about and the State will survive. The Arab mentality is on a completely different level, you CANNOT negotiate with them, they simply do NOT understand the process - look at the Schalit situation; more procrastination this week, despite Israel's willingness to release hundreds of prisoners. We are still NO further forward this week to his release,  than we were last week or the the week before that.


    Yes, the outlook may be grim but look at Cyprus. The island is divided, but the North and South co-exist and life goes on. Northern Ireland-Southern Ireland, co-existence and life goes on, so the status quo will remain in Israel, as far as I can see...... indefinitely - we ALL, left and right viewpoints will have to learn to accept it.
