“This is the first war in history which has ended with the victors [Israel] suing for peace and the vanquished [Arabs] calling for unconditional surrender.”
Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban following the 1967 Six-Day War
ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (Ma’an) — Palestinians will have the final word if negotiations with Israel fail, President Mahmoud Abbas said Sunday.
Speaking at the first Sir Bani Yas Forum on Peace and Global Security in Abu Dhabi, Abbas said Palestinians had complied with a number of international resolutions, while Israel had not complied with any. “We met our obligations, but you [Israel] did not, and so we will be discharged from obligations.” Ya think?

GAZA CITY (BNO NEWS) — German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle (a homosexual who -somehow- Â realized that its not cool to take his boyfriend along to Mohammedan countries) during his visit to the Gaza Strip on Monday criticized the Israeli-Egyptian blockade of the region, calling it unacceptable.

If I sat in the pews of a synagogue for over two decades and the rabbi spewed forth anti-black venom repeatedly, one might just surmise that I had no problem with those sermons. Reverend Jeremiah Wright was (and is still) like family to Obama, and together with Wright’s other good friend, the Nation of Islam’s Louis Farakhan, were rabid Jew-baiting mentors to the current leader of our nation. It was not for nothing that Obama was called the messiah by Farakhan. (Barenaked has the whole thing)
The Jihad of Dumb:
Jerusalem area Arabs once again have stoned two Israeli Magen David ambulances trying to help neighbors. This time, the medical rescue vehicles were trying to save an Arab boy who fell five floors from his home in El Azaria, a village between the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of French Hill and nearby Maaleh Adumim.

A good analysis of the sort of abuse that Palestinians subject their children to, for a cheap media propaganda stunt.
The president talked at length about the different stages of negotiations during the tenure of former US President George W Bush and current President Barack Obama. He recalled that there was agreement with Bush to deploy NATO forces on the borders of the Palestinian state.
Abbas told the forum that Palestinians had reached an agreement with Israel on borders and security when former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was in office.
However, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected all agreements reached with Olmert and “created obstacles when he insisted on staying in the Palestinian territories and demanded recognition of Israel as a Jewish state,” Abbas said.
Abbas reiterated his refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish state. “There are one and a half million Arabs in Israel, and if we agree on Israel as Jewish state, that will be enough reason to expel them.”
Commenting on Netanyahu’s refusal to stop settlement activities despite demands from the international community, the president said “We will not be deceived by a moratorium, or half a moratorium, or a quarter of a moratorium. If they want to resume negotiations, settlement construction must stop completely, then we will discuss borders and security.
“If Israel refuses to freeze settlements, we will ask the US to propose a solution and submit it to both sides. If we fail, we will go to the UN Security Council seeking international recognition of a Palestinian state. Obama already said there would be a Palestinian state in a year and it will be a member state of the UN. We have six or seven options which we will take consecutively.”
Direct talks, relaunched in Washington on 2 September, reached an impasse within weeks when Netanyahu refused to extend restrictions on settlement construction on land which would be a Palestinian state in a peace agreement.
