    The Palestinian bubble bursts again

    The Palestinian bubble bursts again

    Why the Palestinians thought that a diplomatic confrontation with the U.S. was the way to go is inexplicable.  Once again, they overplayed their hand.

    Did they really buy into Obama’s rhetoric from 2009 in Cairo, or earlier this year about the Arab Spring?  In part, a big maybe, but I don’t think that explains it all.

    I think the Palestinians live in a bubble of international yes-men and women, people in international NGOs and organizations who keep telling them that isolating and ostracizing Israel is the way to go.

    And perhaps they read columns by Glenn Greenwald and M.J. Rosenberg and others who complain about the “Israel lobby” and use term like “Israel Firsters” and mistakenly think they represent the American people.

    And they go to conferences where people use the Palestinian cause for other purposes, with very effective lip service.

    At every stage on the international scene, there is a bubble of anti-Israeli venom and propaganda which creates a lack of reality, a lack of willingness to compromise.  To put it bluntly, they start believing their own anti-Israeli BS.

    There is only one thing which will bring peace and a real Palestinian state:  The acceptance of Israel as a Jewish state within militarily defensible borders.

    And that is the one thing the Palestinians as of yet are unwilling to give.

    Expect violence.

    I do not understand the Palis wanting a “State” as in nation. If they were a nation then all those rocket and sniper attacks would be an act of war, not a crime as they are today. Seein’ as how the Palis can only kill unarmed and unprepared civilians committing an act of war upon Israel would be like putting golf shoes on and stepping all over their own dicks.

    Why, oh why do I think of Jackson and Sharpton when I read your post?

    What is the idea supporting Palestinian statehood?

    Well, according to the NYTimes, it looks like Obama has now bombed out in the UN. Obama Rebuffed as Palestinians Pursue U.N. Seat http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/22/world/obama-rebuffed-as-palestinians-pursue-un-seat.html

    Violence is the inevitable and ongoing future for Israel and the territories as long as the world subsidizes the Palestinian refusal to negotiate in good faith. Cut off all the aid money, and see how fast they run to the table.

    Not that they would honor any new agreement more than previous agreements one second beyond they perceive it necessary to do so.
