The Roadmap To Murderville
The Roadmap To Murderville: We’re getting ready for the latest round of futile peace talks between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Abu Mazen is claiming that terrorism isn’t the way to go, Ariel Sharon is issuing work permits and letting Palestinians out of prison, and the State Department is abuzz with excitement. It all sounds exhilarating…until you realize that it’s all destined to end in tears like every other attempt to make peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians.
The reason I see little reason to get excited about the peace process is because I see little being done to address even the most fundamental issues that need to be dealt with. There are at least three things that need to happen before the Israelis and the Palestinians even start to seriously discuss creating a Palestinian State. (Cont)
