UPDATE: Rice wins [more] concessions from Israel !!

Posted by avideditor on March 30, 2008

more bad news. I can’t believe Israel is giving in to Rice or that she is representing the American people. Rice is a jihadi stooge and must be stopped.

UPDATE: Rice wins [more] concessions from Israel !!: “

Just last month,

In an interview with the Jordanian daily al-Dustur, Abbas said that he was opposed to an armed struggle against Israel – for the time being.

‘At this present juncture, I am opposed to armed struggle because we cannot succeed in it, but maybe in the future things will be different,’ he said.


Associated Press:

Israel and the Palestinians agreed Sunday to a series of ‘concrete steps’ aimed at paving the way for a final peace agreement later this year, beginning with Israel’s pledge to remove some West Bank roadblocks.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, visiting the region for the second time this month in hopes of energize faltering talks, said the moves ‘constitute a very good start to improving’ a Palestinian economy crippled by the Israeli restrictions.

Under the plan that Rice announced, Israel will remove about 50 roadblocks, upgrade checkpoints to speed up the movement of Palestinians through the West Bank and give Palestinians more security responsibility in the town of Jenin with an eye toward looking at ‘other areas in turn.’

The Israelis also pledged to increase the number of travel and work permits it gives Palestinians and to support economic projects in Palestinian towns.

In return, the Palestinians promised to improve policing of Jenin ‘to provide law and order, and work to prevent terror,’ according to a State Department statement released shortly before Rice spoke….

‘We’ve been told that this is going to start and, hopefully even be completed in a relatively short period of time,’ Rice told reporters. ‘I am expecting it to happen very, very soon.’

‘We will be monitoring and verifying,’ she added.

The agreement includes:

  • removing 50 travel barriers in and around Jenin, Tulkarem, Qalqiliya and Ramallah.
  • dismantling of one permanent roadblock.
  • deploying 700 Jordanian-trained Palestinian police in Jenin and allowing them to take delivery of armored vehicles.
  • raising the number of Palestinian businessmen allowed into Israel to 1,500 from 1,000.
  • increasing the number of work permits for Palestinian laborers by 5,000 from its current number of 18,500.
  • building new housing for Palestinians in 25 villages.
  • connecting Palestinian villages to the Israeli power grid.
  • Israeli support for large-scale economic development programs and encouragement of foreign investment.

Palestinian ‘businessmen’ ? Who woulda thunk it?

… graffiti says ‘Palestine’ …

Just one question. Why is it that housing for Arabs is part and parcel of the ‘peace process,’ but housing for Jews is an ‘obstacle to peace’ ??

I guess everyone is assuming that Jews have no future in a post-peace-process world.

Gd forbid.

  1. Just one question. Why is it that housing for Arabs is part and parcel of the ‘peace process,’ but housing for Jews is an ‘obstacle to peace’ ??

    No, just that Israelis have no future as colonists in a post-peace-process Palestine. The Israeli colonies in the (illegally-occupied) West Bank are illegal under international law and are wreaking economic destruction on the Palestinian people. Israelis are welcome to live freely on their side of the Green Line. They could even live side-by-side with Palestinians in West Bank towns. But a post-peace-process world that allows settlements to continue will not remain stable for long.

    The UN is a jihadi puppet organization. The US Israel and any sane country should not listen to the UN. The west bank is Israeli land. The arabs got Jordan. There is no such think as a Palestinian it is a made up group of people. They called them selves Southern syrians. They should go to Jordan. Israel is for jews. I don’t mind xtains or muslims living there if they respect the jewish right to the land and do not kill innocent people. But for the most part the muslims just want to push the jews to the sea. So I think Israel should move them all to gaza or let them leave to go to jordan the state that was created for them.
