“In a true peace it is impossible that a purely Jewish state of Palestine can endure…. In a true peace, Israel will, in our lifetimes, become one more Arab country, with a Jewish minority.”

US Assistant Secretary of State for Middle East Affairs Jeffrey Feltman said on Friday that the US wants the ‘peace talks’ to include Syria and Lebanon.
U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Near East Affairs Jeffery Feltman stated Friday that the United States wants peace in the region to include Lebanon and Syria, but added that there are great problems and challenges thwarting this aim.
Addressing the launch of direct Palestinian-Israeli negotiations, he told Al-Arabiya that the success of the negotiations is not guaranteed, but the U.S. will try all it can to ensure their success.
He stressed that it is in the U.S.’ interest to achieve peace, noting that both the Palestinians and Israelis agreed to reach a comprehensive peace agreement within a year.
“The nature and cause of the explosions are not yet clear,” he added. (UNIFIL is real effective, isn’t it? Heh.)
One of the ‘great problems and challenges’ is Hezbullah’s explosive response to Feltman’s statement.
Several explosions caused a large fire at a building in the southern town of Shehabiyeh on Friday amid reports that the blasts went off at a Hizbullah weapons depot.
“Three explosions went off in a house in Shehabiyeh” near the southern coastal city of Tyre, an army spokesman told Agence France Presse.
