Mitchell: Israel-Palestinian peace deal within a year
Jerusalem Post ^ | Sep 1, 2010 | HILARY LEILA KRIEGER

US Mideast envoy George Mitchell on Tuesday night stressed the US belief in the possibility of the sides reaching an agreement within a year, in a briefing for reporters held before the West Bank attack which left four Israelis dead.

He also began to sketch out the American perspective of how talks would proceed, embracing Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s suggestion that he meet personally with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas every two weeks.

That's great. Problem is -- given the Islamic doctrine of Taqiyya -- the Palestinians have never abided one agreement they have signed. Ever.

What is the value of an agreement with those who are duty-bound to lie in pursuit of their Cause?

What’s Mitchell smoking? How do you get an agreement when one of the major players (Hamas) isn’t at the table?

That can only happen when the anti-christ comes aboard. I haven't seen him yet. Perhaps it will rear it's ugly head w/in the year....we shall see.

I've started viewing these agreements and talks as Taqiyya practice sessions.

Mitchell: Peace within a year...

Chamberlain: Peace in our time

I love these artificial time lines than can't be met - especially with Palestinians who don't want peace at all but drag out the talks until military victory (killing all Jews) is achieved.

You've got to wonder why Statesmen like Mitchell repeat the same basic assumptions time after time...as if their job depended on it.

Bottom line: There can be no artificially time squeeze, Western style on parties that are not ready or willing to bridge the gaps. The Israelis want security first, the Palis want Israel to surrender, first.

Is there any doubt exactly why the Obama administration
supports the financier of the Munich Olympic Atrocities?

Peace could be a fact in a little over a year after Israel defeats the terrorists that have fired over 10,000 rockets into their land. Iran will need its ears clipped and Muslims will have to back off the terrorism.

“The day there’s a “deal” will the day all hell breaks loose.”

You’re not kidding there! If I have my Biblical prophecy right, the battle of Ezek 38 has to happen first.

LOL You could start something there! Not that I disagree mind you. But we will see. The battle of Ezek 38, seven months to pick up bodies, peace treaty?

If Israel agrees to abandon all of it’s infrastructure, and move to another part of the world, there will be peace within a year.

So it is in theory possible that Mitchell could be right...

LMAO

I hear ya.....you just gave me another thing to worry about. POS barry certainly wasn’t born in America. I believe , from what I have read and studied thus far, the anti-christ will arise from Europe.

Who the heck knows where barry was born.

Obama is more of Arab descent then African. His Arab roots lead back to the middle east.

If not from Europe, then he is not the anti-christ. He may be a “follower” or “minion”.

Waiting to see what comes out of Europe.

I remember in college, Mitchell was giving a speech, I was in an Irish Literature class, and our professor made us attend, his speech was about himself and what a great peacemaker he was. I ended up leaving in the middle of it, the look on his self absorbed face was priceless not to mention the adoring idiots that were in attendance, you would have thought I had physically slapped him as Mitchell and the audience watched me leave with jaws agape, It felt so good, I still think my grade was affected by this act.

What’s he talking about? There’s a deal right now! It’s called “The Oslo Accords”, and “The Roadmap”, also my personal favorite, UN Resolution 242.
