Skip to comments.U.S.: No Need for PA to Recognize Israel
Posted on 03/08/2014 7:09:08 PM PST by sheikdetailfeather
The United States believes there is no need for the Palestinian Authority (PA) to recognize Israel as a Jewish state as part of a peace agreement, State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Saturday.
Psaki, who spoke to the PA-based Arabic-language Al-Quds newspaper, said, The American position is clear, Israel is a Jewish state. However, we do not see a need that both sides recognize this position as part of the final agreement.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has been adamant on the PA recognizing Israel as a Jewish state, explaining that the Arabs refusal to recognize Israel stands at the heart of the conflict.

If they refuse to recognize Israel, then how can they enter into a treaty with Israel?
Exactly. One-state solution “from the river to the sea” and all.
Appalling...........I feel so sorry for our allies. Obama is selling them all out. Our word and bond are toast with the Bamster at the helm.
It’s a set up....clear as day....
When talks fail and that is a certainty...Israel will be blamed for being to strident with their terms.
Seriously I don’t understand why Bibi does not throw Kerry out the negotiations for bad faith and ask another western power to mediate....
This Administration’s policy is: The enemy of my friend is my friend.
Worry about the American people, screwed by
the HATED, EXEMPT, treasonous Congress which
has upheld lawlessness from the DO”J” to what
once was, the CIA, now the MB/alQaeda’s American HQ
to the IRSS.
Muslims, commies and nazis run our country
hold on Israel... we’re trying to fix this
“Seriously I dont understand why Bibi does not throw Kerry out the negotiations for bad faith and ask another western power to mediate....”
Because all of the other western powers hate Israel too.
-——Because all of the other western powers hate Israel too.-——
More like their nations are being overrun with Muzzie filth....
They will take too much flak.... Being an objective mediator....
What a bunch of f’ing idiots we have in Washington.
I am heartbroken for my beloved country. But I have hope that we can resurrect this once great country again. Our allies are smaller and weaker. Who will resurrect them? They believed in us........Clinton and Obama both pledged to protect the Ukraine from a Russian invasion if the
Ukraine would disarm. That worked out well for them, yes? Obama dismantled the missile defense system promised to Poland, et al. We are no longer respected or trusted but we have a new generation coming up that trusted Obama and are awakening to the fact that he is a liar and a fraud. I have hope they will change the course this country is following.
Shockingly stupid. We have reached a new low until tomorrow.
I totally agree with you. My main concerns are: can the American people hold out until someone qualified for the office of President is elected, and can Israel hold out until this steaming pile of buffoon is out of office.
If the Commie in Chief doesn’t destroy us first, God will make our lives miserable
Ukraine gave up their only bargaining chip for a “gentleman’s agreement” with Bill Clinton?
HA HA HA HA HA
Hey Mr. Kerry, it’s ONLY the root of the conflict...let’s skip it!
Clinton, Yeltsin and John Major signed the agreement. And Obama reaffirmed it in 2009. Yeppers.
Put people in power who neither believe nor have any knowledge of the Bible, perhaps even contempt, and this is what you get. Like watching a child stick a table knife into an electric socket, over, and over again.
No need for islamoNazi terrorists to recognize the people they plan to murder,( with Washington’s help setting them up for the slaughter ) Well, at least nobody can say any longer that “ peace “ was ever in Obama-Kerry’s plan. What a horrible embarrassment for the USA !!
Who are the Palestinians? Every Arab country avoids the Palestinians. Palestinians inhabit a little craphole piece of land which they have done nothing to improve. Israelis received the same type of land and it now is lush and produces like crazy. Israelis have a list of patents stretching a mile long; Palestinians? Still waiting.
Which group is more deserving of life, hope and support?
“Appalling...........I feel so sorry for our allies. Obama is selling them all out. Our word and bond are toast with the Bamster at the helm.”
It takes a long time to build trust, but it can be lost very quickly...the worldwide damage is going to take 5x as long to undo.
Well, it will be good for arms sales worldwide, anyway. See? Obama “created” some jobs after all.
“Who are the Palestinians? Every Arab country avoids the Palestinians. Palestinians inhabit a little craphole piece of land which they have done nothing to improve.

There aren’t very many Palestinians who actually live in “Palestine”. I read somewhere that the wealthier Arab countries have wondered where all the money that has been given to them has gone. By their calculations, all of the Palestinians should be living large by now. And that’s just the ARAB money.
God is good, and always true to His word. Have faith. Obama can’t destroy what God has writ.
Reading the article is always helpful.
Our rulers don’t think the PA needs to recognize Israel because our administration thinks or hopes that Israel will be unrecognizable pretty soon anyway.
Because Bibi knows that no other nation is so foolish as to negotiate a “peace” with a party (the PLA) whose aim is to kill or drive out all members of the other party (Israel).
Moreover, while the PLA has almost no power in the first place, Hamas and Hezbollah (funded and supported by Iran) have all the power and military - they are not at the table, as both are committed to the absolute destruction of Israel and will broker no peace whatsoever. Everyone knows this, even the US which uses the ‘peace process’ to take over the news cycle and away from other matters. Right now this ‘news story’ is fighting to draw as much attention in the cycle as possible away from the Ukraine.
The real root of the conflict is that there are those in this world who do not accept Islam. Israel is just the current prime target - things in Europe are going well for Islam and the US is beginning to shape up.
I hear Kerry is also telling Israel to have its military abide by our Border Patrol ROE - don’t shoot at anything/keep your gun holstered/gain a tactical advantage by running away....
The Saudis, the Qatarians, the Dubians (the ARAB money) know very well where the money goes, since they fund the money directly for those goals and expect some to be siphoned off - as that is the custom and allowed for in the funding.
The other Palestinians, aka historically ‘southern Syrians’, live in Jordan, Syria and Lebanon.
We are still waiting for the Arabs to steal some other invention and claim it as their own, as they did with the zero, algebra, and so on. We are also still waiting for them to translate anything other than Islamic works and “Mein Kampf”.
We are still waiting for Arab countries to allow the Palestinians to live in their countries, rather than keeping them in “refuge camps” to be used to further the Islamic agenda.
The statement is nonsensical.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
The Obama Doctrine! Surrender then negotiate.
“There arent very many Palestinians who actually live in Palestine. I read somewhere that the wealthier Arab countries have wondered where all the money that has been given to them has gone. By their calculations, all of the Palestinians should be living large by now. And thats just the ARAB money.”
That sounds remarkably like “the poor” in the U.S. Let’s see, since 1967...how many trillions divided by how many million “poor?” Oh, let’s not leave out the Dimocratz who administer all this money; how much money has stuck to their hands?
Revolt is coming in America folks.
In truth, Palistine is really Jordan.
Please see post number 38. Thank-you.
Why? I just stated where they live - of course Jordan is part of “Palestine” area.
