Once again, Miss ‘Affirmative action’ descends on the ME, with nothing more than this: “I’m not coming with a proposal. I’m not coming with a plan,” Rice told reporters on her way to Israel, according to a State Department transcript of her remarks.
U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Israel’s Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni
Why go at all if you can’t grasp it in the first place? How did Rice manage to stay on when Bolton & Rumsfeld were sacked? I cringed when I saw it live on CNN yesterday, an embarrassed Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni who seemed backed into a corner, forced to repeat the platitudes of the past:
The ‘Roadmap’- the ‘Rights of the Palestinians’- a ‘Viable Palestinian State’ and all the bulls*#t from way back when.
Absolutely disgusting. Condoleezza Rice pandering to a Holocaust-denying thug like Mahmoud Abbasâ€”and Abbas has the sheer gall to throw it right back at us: Abbas: No ‘temporary’ Palestinian state.
RAMALLAH, West Bank – Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas told Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Sunday that he opposes the establishment of a provisional Palestinian state within temporary borders.
Palestinian officials in recent weeks have grown increasingly wary of the idea, which was also proposed by Israel’s foreign minister, fearing they will be stuck indefinitely with a truncated state.
“We reaffirmed to Secretary Rice our rejection of any temporary or transitional solutions, including a state with temporary borders, because we don’t see in it as a realistic option,” he told a joint news conference with Rice.
At every juncture, over the course of many years, the Palestinians have shown the world that they simply don’t care about having a state. They care about destroying Israel. After Arafat died, the Palestinians had a historic opportunity to change course and move toward statehoodâ€”and instead they elected an openly genocidal terrorist gang.
They don’t deserve a state and they don’t want a state.
