Posted on 10/13/2010 9:31:38 AM PDT by mojito
The Palestinian Authority has concluded that the peace process based on a two-state solution has failed, a senior Fatah official said on Tuesday.
His statement came as PA officials repeated their rejection of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahus proposal to extend the settlement construction moratorium if the Palestinian leadership recognized Israel as a Jewish state.
But the US urgently sought to keep talks going, and called on the Palestinians to present their own counter-proposal to keep things on track.
Mahmoud Aloul, a member of the Fatah Central Committee, said that Israels racist policies were meant to undermine the peace process.
The Palestinian Authority made every effort to avoid reaching this conclusion, but Israeli racist policies led to the failure of the peace process, he added.
Aloul accused the US administration of failing to exert pressure on Israel to alter its policies and halt settlement construction.
The Americans left us no choice but to stop the peace negotiations, he said. The Palestinian leadership has briefed the Arab leaders on the difficult situation, and we have asked them to start taking real measures on the ground.
PLO negotiators Saeb Erekat and Nabil Shaath also reiterated their refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish state.

“Yasser Abed Rabbo, a senior PLO official and advisor to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, has come under attack for expressing his willingness to recognize Israel as a Jewish state.
Abed Rabbo was quoted as saying on Wednesday that the Palestinians would be willing to recognize Israel in any way that it desires if the US Administration and Israeli government recognized the 1967 lines as the borders of a future Palestinian state.
The top PLO official was responding to US State Department Spokesman Phillip Crowleys announcement that the Palestinians should respond to the Israeli demand of recognizing Israel as a Jewish state in return for the extension of a moratorium on settlement construction.
Abed Rabbos remarks were interpreted by many Palestinians as recognition of Israel as a Jewish state a position that contradicts the official PA policy. A number of Palestinians factions, including the ruling Fatah faction in the West Bank, strongly condemned Abed Rabbo and called for his firing.”
The next Obama foreign policy success will by the first.
Don’t they know that Obama Won?
I can’t imagine the patience Israelis have dealing with these people.
Onto the next EPIC FAIL!
Deja Vu ... all over again.
Bibi played 'em, and played Obama. That's why he gets to be boss. Make your enemy an offer he can't . . . accept. If the offer is right, the refusal reveals the enemy's stark evil in one stroke, in front of not only his co-conspirators, but before his self-deluding collaborators, such as the EU and the Obamanauts.
How's that again, Muzzie? You're saying you want to be a Muzzie state, but Israel's not allowed to be a Jewish state? Not very, er, inclusive. And you get how many billions in aid from the West, in addition to the West's oil money, laundered by the Saudis?
Dear, maybe there's another charity we could give to this year.
They couldn't care less.
As history illustrates repeatedly, this attempt at "peacemaking' will increase the risk of violence. Nice work, Bamster, ya chump.

One can hope.....but I doubt this snake is dead yet. Hussein will find a way to keep the dream of Israel with Auschwitz borders alive.
