Lives and lies for Peace: High time for Israel to demand consequences of West
Jewish World Review ^ | 4/25/2014 | Caroline B. Glick

It's hard not to admire Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's brazenness.

Two weeks ago, Abbas signed on to fifteen international agreements that among other things require the PA to respect human rights and punish war criminals. And this week, he signed a unity deal with two genocidal terror groups all of whose leaders are war criminals.

Every leader of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the two parties who signed the deal with the PLO are war criminals. Under the Geneva Conventions, which Abbas signed onto just a couple of weeks ago, he is required to put them on trial, for their war crimes.

Abbas was only able to sign the Geneva Conventions on the one hand, and the unity deal with terrorist war criminals on the other because he is utterly convinced that neither the US nor the European Union will hold him accountable for his actions. He is completely certain that neither the Americans nor the Europeans are serious about their professed commitments to upholding international law.

>>SNIP<<

Two days before the unity deal, a reporter from Al-Monitor asked Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar if Hamas has given up terrorism.

Zahar responded, "Anyone who claims so must be drunk. How has Hamas abandoned the resistance [that is, terrorist] effort? What are the manifestations of it doing so? Where have we prevented the launching of rockets?"

>>SNIP<<

So now Abbas is telling them that the deal is actually good for peace since it brings Hamas-controlled Gaza into the PLO and so reunifies the PA, which has been operating as two separate entities for seven years. And they may go along with it. They've been perfectly willing to embrace utter nonsense countless times over the years.

Only the Israeli government and Congress can stop them. And they must stop them.

This morning I read in The Jerusalem Post that Netanyahu had agreed to talk borders and settlement freeze just before Fatah and Hamas announced their deal. So, all things considered, the deal might have saved Israel from untold problems.

Agreed.
The palis never miss an opprotunity to miss an opportunity.
