The End of the :Peace Process" Era
ISRAPUNDIT ^ | Nov 15/11 | Ted Belman

The PA announced today that it is abandoning swaps and negotiations. That means it has formally abandon Oslo and the Roadmap both of which require negotiations. We are back to Res 242.
    Khalid also admitted the PA has no interest in reaching a bilateral agreement with Israel - that is, peace - and plans to continue on its current unilateral track.

By Ted Belman

The Palestinian/Israeli conflict has entered a new era. Since the UNSC passed Res 242, it had been focused on the “peace process,” which included the Madrid Conference, the Oslo Accords, The Roadmap, Annapolis and finally Obama’s heavy handed attempts to impose a solution.

One of the reasons that Obama couldn’t get the PA to negotiate after three years of trying is that it was laying the ground work to go another path, a path that would circumvent the peace process and rely on the intervention of the UN. The PA realized that it had gotten all it could through negotiations, which is virtually nothing, and that to continue on that path meant that at the end of the line it would have to sign an end-of-conflict-agreement with Israel. This, it was unwilling to do. So instead, the PA has decided to get what it wanted from the international community and the UN. It has spent the last three years lobbying the member states of the UN to support its bid for recognition as a state whose borders aligned with the ’49 Armistice Lines. Its goal was to reach this stage without having to concede anything to Israel, much less sign an end-of-conflict-agreement. From this stage it would go on to fight for the lines in the Partition Plan recommended by the UNGA in Res 181.

The "peace process" has been a myth ever since the assassination of Anwar Sadat. High time rational people admit this obvious fact.

No news here. The only way to deal with the “rabid dog” mentality of islam is ignore it until it tries to bite you, then shoot it, and then go back to ignoring it. And get all the rabid dogs out, put up a fence to keep them out, and keep them on their side of the fence.

There is no point in talking to them because they are insane, insanely manipulative and they continually lie.

They may never stop playing their games and killing, but with the above method one can minimize both the danger and the annoyance.
