A DesertPeace Editorial

As far as Ehud Olmert is concerned, the Annapolis ‘farce’ gave him and his government the go ahead to expand existing settlements on Palestinian soil. The ‘promises’ to halt these operations fell on deaf ears as did all the other promises regarding roadblocks and the dismantling of illegal West Bank outposts.

As far as Abbas is concerned, his ‘job’ is on the line unless he outwardly appears to oppose these expansionist policies.

Hence a new meeting in Jerusalem between the two misleaders of the region, the first since Annapolis.
One Israeli official is quoted as saying, “We attach great importance to our dialogue with the Palestinian leadership and we understand that the process is challenging,” Olmert spokesman Mark Regev said ahead of the meeting at the prime minister’s residence. “Israel is committed to doing everything we can to make this process work.”

Sounds good, right? WRONG!!!! One slight problem being the term ‘Palestinian leadership’….. Abbas??? Correct me if I’m wrong, but it was Hamas that was elected to be the leadership of Palestine. It was Abbas that walked away from the coalition government set up in the Palestinian Authority. It was Abbas that literally sold his soul to the Elders of zion for his ‘place in the sun’. It is Abbas that represents those very same zionists sitting in Jerusalem while the Palestinian people continue to suffer under their occupation….

Now he wants to discuss settlements again? Could it have anything to do with Bush’s planned visit next month? Could it be that Olmert and Abbas want it to appear as if peace is REALLY on the agenda? Bush just might be an easy target to fool, given his understanding of the situation (zilch), but there are millions of other people in the region that see and know the truth…

President Bush, trying to nurture fragile peace talks between Israeli and Palestinians, will make his first trip to Israel and the West Bank next month as part of a nine-day swing through the Middle East.

In Jerusalem, Bush will meet with President Shimon Peres and Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, and in the West Bank he will meet with President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Salam Fayyad. The president will then travel to Kuwait, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt.

Bush says conditions in Israel and the Palestinian territories now are ripe for a more aggressive U.S. role: Abbas and Olmert agreed in Annapolis to renew peace talks, there is a unifying fight against extremism fed by the Palestinian conflict, and the world understands the urgency of acting now.

The above (in italics) is taken from THIS report…

So it appears that the non elected President of the United States has decided that the non elected President of Palestine is the true representative of the Palestinian people…. talk about ‘conspiracy theories’…..

The amazing thing is that the American people don’t seem to recognise this international farce and don’t realise what their President is doing, not only to them, but to the entire world. Must we wait for an election for this to stop? One more year means thousands more dead…. the world must not allow this to continue. Impeachment is no longer an option, it is the only solution.

Israeli attrocities since Annapolis… (just this week alone) can be read about HERE, HERE, and HERE.
