Palestinians say full settlement freeze is precondition to new peace talks

A senior Palestinian peace negotiator says the terms of a proposed Israeli deal to restart the peace process, leaked to the press this week, are unacceptable. But he did not rule out a meeting at the United Nations next month between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

The proposed Israeli deal to temporarily freeze settlement expansion in the West Bank, with exceptions made for all of East Jerusalem and what Israel calls the "natural growth" of existing settlements, was reported by the Guardian, a British newspaper, on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu knows that his proposal is a non-starter for Palestinian negotiators, which is precisely why he put this proposal on the table.

At the end of the day, Netanyahu will spit in Obama's face and tell him it's raining, the peace process will sputter and die again, the US will continue to sign the checks for the massive military aid, and somehow get conned into, yet again, "neutralizing" another one of Israel's "existential threats", Iran, just as we did with Iraq.

Remember the war and occupation of Iraq? Remember how it was started on a pack of lies, none of which ultimately held up under any logical scrutiny whatsoever?

And notice which country still has the body bags coming back from Iraq.

Notice which country has the gravely physically and mentally wounded coming back from Iraq.

Notice which country is rapidly going broke because of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Notice that this country is not Israel.
