After The #PalestinePapers, Abbas Is Done

The solution to the “Palestinian” curse on Israel

From http://daledamos.blogspot.com/2011/01/arlene-kushner-after-palestinepapers.html

The implications of Palileaks, the Palestine Papers, goes far beyond the veracity of the documents or what it indicates about the Palestinian or Israeli side in the Mideast peace talks. The real question is what future does Abbas and the PA have.

This excerpt of Arlene Kushner’s From Israel is from the January 25, 2011 edition: “Give Me a Break”:

Khaled Abu Toameh, writing about this in the JPost today, does not specifically say that the leaks are fabricated. But he does refer to a “show trial,” which carries certain implications. This, in part, is what he wrote:

“After assuming the role of prosecutor and judge, Al- Jazeera, the Arab world’s most influential TV network, has ruled that the leaders of the Palestinian Authority have betrayed their people and must therefore step down from the stage.

“In other words, PA President Mahmoud Abbas and his men have been convicted of high treason – which, in the Arab and Islamic world, is a crime punishable by death.

“Al-Jazeera is now waiting for the executioner (the Palestinians, in this case) to carry out the death sentence.

“…The TV station has already decided that the defendants are guilty of the…charges against them. The station’s unequivocal message to Palestinians is that Abbas and his men are traitors who need to be removed from the scene, and the sooner the better.

“It’s hard to see how, in light of this damning verdict, the PA will be able to salvage what’s left of its credibility. Al- Jazeera has succeeded in instilling in the minds of many Palestinians and Arabs the belief that the leaders of the PA are a bunch of corrupt traitors who serve Israeli and American interests.

“The damage to the PA’s image and reputation is colossal and irreparable..”

Posted by avideditor on January 24, 2011

The Jihadis really shoot them selves in the foot this time. It is a good thing to have them fight with themselves. They are losing the illusion of there lies

From http://elderofziyon.blogspot.com/2011/01/palestinian-arabs-really-mad-at-al.html

The fallout from Palileaks continues….

Besides Yasser Abed Rabbo’s attack on the Emir of Qatar this morning for supposedly being behind the “Palestine Papers,” we have…

A mob – no doubt “spontaneous” – attacked the Al Jazeera offices in the West Bank. They broke in and vandalized the office.

The “Palestine Papers” Hoax and how the Stoy Is A Fabrication That Teaches Us The Truth

Posted by avideditor on January 24, 2011

What the “Palestine Papers” hoax teaches us
From SCOOP: Explaining How The “Palestine Papers” Story Is A Fabrication That Teaches Us The Truth

The “Palestine Papers” hoax is (or, more accurately, should be) turning into the most teachable moment about the Israel-Palestinian conflict in modern history. At least, everyone has reversed what happened: The compromise position was offered by Israel; the Palestinians rejected peace. Are we going to see this story corrected?

The “Palestine Papers” have been “obtained” by al-Jazira, the Guardian, and perhaps others, in imitation of Wikileaks.

They purport to show, in the media version, that the PA made Israel a big offer of peace and Israel rejected it. Naturally, this is being accepted by these and other newspapers as true without verification or considering how these claims stack up against other information. Also claimed is that the PA was ready to accept Israel as a Jewish state and give up the demand that Palestinian refugees can live in Israel, again things it has totally opposed.

Hello? Is anyone out there actually following Israel-Palestinian issues?Here’s how the Los Angeles Times summed it up: “Al Jazeera said the documents also revealed that Palestinians were willing to divide the Old City, limit the return of Palestinian refugees to 100,000 people and recognize Israel as a Jewish state.”

Wait!!! This sounds familiar. It is the ISRAELI NOT THE PALESTINIAN position. In other words, either deliberately or in the translation they REVERSED the story! It should read:
