PA Issues Ultimatum to Israel: Talk - or Else
Arutz Sheva ^ | 11/12/12 | Tzvi ben Gedalyahu

Posted on 12/10/2012 11:55:54 PM PST by Eleutheria5

The Palestinian Authority, feeling it is fully armed diplomatically after it won informal UN recognition, now says Israel has six months to talk – or else.

Flying the “peace process” slogan despite Fatah’s unity with the Hamas terrorist organization, Palestinian Authority negotiator Saeb Erekat told PA radio the “peace process” is a golden principle but then incorrectly stated that “according to all previously signed agreements and international law, [it] is the withdrawal of Israel to the June 4, 1967 borderline, including Jerusalem.”

Mainstream media have accepted his claims as fact, but in truth, the Oslo Accords “peace process” specifically calls on Israel and the Palestinian Authority to negotiate final borders. It also commits the Palestinian Authority to halt terror and incitement, conditions that have not been upheld and which have been effectively canceled by Abbas’ unity with Hamas, which vows to destroy Israel.

Erekat said a second principle is resuming what he called negotiations based on an offer of former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, who proposed that the PA take over almost all of Judea and Samaria and parts of Jerusalem. The PA rejected the offer, but Erekat said that the negotiations “should not start from scratch like Netanyahu wants them to be.”

Thirdly, he is setting “a six-month time-table for the negotiations to reach an agreement over all final status issues. Settlement activity should be halted during this period of time and Palestinian prisoners should be released in accordance with previously signed agreements and not as preconditions."

Erekat did not say what would happen if the deadline passes, but the Palestinian Authority is feeling its oats following its support in the United Nations and is banking on international pressure to force Israel's hand. Only two handfuls of countries, most prominently the United States, opposed the UN resolution.

on second thought, Israel should deliver that message to the damned murderous terrorists WITHOUT trying to say it “diplomatically”

I was thinking last night that even if Israel decided to move lock, stock and barrel to the Moon these “Palestinians” would move next door to them and be demanding “something” from them. It appears to me that they as a group live for one thing only and that is to utterly destroy Israel.

Thanks Eleutheria5.
Erekat told PA radio the "peace process" is a golden principle but then incorrectly stated that "according to all previously signed agreements and international law, [it] is the withdrawal of Israel to the June 4, 1967 borderline, including Jerusalem." Mainstream media have accepted his claims as fact, but in truth, the Oslo Accords "peace process" specifically calls on Israel and the Palestinian Authority to negotiate final borders.
And the jihadist terrorists have systematically refused to negotiate. Now that the PA claims nation status, it's time for Israel to declare war (which would be defensive in nature), purport to recognize the PA's claims to be in charge over Gaza, and clean out the entire Arab infestation.

Or else, we will lob dozens of missiles harmlessly into your countryside, while suffering humiliating losses, then afterward fire rifles into the air while mindlessly ululating, declaring victory and praising our godless god.

All talk, no action. Besides, Israel is the one holding the cards.

What's the PA “or else” mean? The Palis will resume rocket attacks on Israel or they will start using chemical weapons smuggled in from ex-Libyan stockpiles by the CIA through Egypt? What?

Here is an excerpt from a story on Debka yesterday. It sounds as though they have adopted O’Bummer’s rules of engagement.

Toll on IDF morale, boost for Palestinians

1. Its toll on IDF morale, which was negatively influenced by the government’s action in calling up and holding 50,000 reservists outside the Gaza Strip for a week, ready and willing to pursue a ground offensive to round off the air operation at great sacrifice, and then sending them home without firing a shot. Their low spirits soon affected other reserve units serving on the West Bank and the Lebanese and Syrian frontiers.

2. Its encouragement to West Bank Palestinians, who were quick to catch on to the new rules of engagement: After witnessing Israel soldiers standing helpless in the face of Palestinians trying to smash through the Gaza border, they staged five incidents since last week to test the ground: Although armed, Israeli soldiers faced with stone-throwing Palestinian mobs on the West Bank screaming insults, did not open fire. Instead they ran for their lives. One of those incidents at Qaddum near Nablus was filmed and broadcast.
The soldiers could only complain that, on the one hand, the rules about opening fire were unclear, while on the other, they were exposed to violent Palestinians buoyed up by Netanyahu’s Gaza policy.

Silence.......

It sends a strong message, without being an overt threat.

The UN set this up with full knowledge of the consequences.

This world does not need the UN.

I think all you have to do is point the bottoms of your shoes at your adversary.

Gentlemen, prepare to show your enemies the bottoms of your shoes.

Makes sense to me.

Israel should tell ‘em to “show us your ‘or else’ and we’ll show you ours.”

That’s interesting. Yes, that’s what they do most of the time, too. It seems inadequate (the arabs keep attacking and killing people) but maybe you’re right. Thanks

The moon would soon be flourishing, with atmosphere and water
The PLO would move next door. To justify their slaughter
They’d claim this was their homeland, and that we’re occupiers
While down below, the earth would glow with bright atomic fires.
And when the end of the UN prevents their interference
And MSM could not condemn due to its disappearance
Then, all alone, they’d bitch and moan. Shown pictures of their Mecca,
They’d see the rock destroyed, annoyed, they’d...

What rhymes with Mecca? Two feet missing. Someone help me here.
