Obama capitulates to Israeli colonialism

Just who is the world's Superpower? America?

Bruce Wolman who reports from Mondoweiss tells us:

Haaretz:

[Mitchell's] main message will be the need to apply pressure, especially from the Arab states, on the Palestinian Authority to resume negotiations with Israel. At last week’s meeting of the Quartet, Mitchell told the delegates there was no prospect of Israel agreeing to a complete halt in construction in East Jerusalem, which the Palestinians have been demanding.

We are seeing the complete capitulation of the Obama administration to the Netanyahu government and the Israeli Lobby. Once again American Mideast foreign policy becomes a mere extension of US domestic politics. As in the Clinton years, it is demanded of the Palestinians that they be the ones to adjust to American and Israeli political realities.

As Americans, we should be ashamed of this capitulation to Israel, which is using our funding and military equipment to continue its ethnic cleansing and colonization of lands belonging to the Palestinian people.

Ashamed, Obama!

RE: Obama capitulates to Israeli colonialism

The Arab Peace Initiative has called for a two state solution, along the 1967 International Border(with mutual adjustments), with de-militarized zones and international guarantees, and calls for the normalization of relations with Israel.  The Arabs have long accepted that there will be an anti-democratic Jewish State in Palestine.

RE: Obama capitulates to Israeli colonialism

But the Likud Charter does not permit the creation of a Palestinian state, which by default assumes the Greater Israel can be attained, Israel from the Jordan River to the sea. It is what made Likud the most extreme right wing party in mainstream Israel.

Netanyahu claims now that he is for a Palestinian state to appease Obama, but like Sharmir long before him, he will keep the Palestinians in negotiations for years while further ethnic cleansing and confiscation of Palestinian land continue. We have been here before, at Oslo and Camp David, but without the administration's will to use the nuclear option, to cut off financial and military aid, a Palestinian state will never happen. And take my word for it, the Palestinians will be blamed. Dennis Ross, the creator of the generous offer that never was in 2000, still works for the administration.
