Safe Mode: On
Palestinians should now declare their independence

Benjamin Netanyahu has responded to the US request with a big concrete slap

By Johann Hari

March 12, 2010 -- Could the Israeli government make it any more obvious they have no intention of sharing the Over-Promised Land with its other inhabitants?

This week the Obama administration - who give Israel $3bn a year, more than they dole out to any other nation on earth - made a meek and craven request for Israelis to simply have a pause in seizing even more land, and to sit down with the Palestinians. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded with a big concrete slap: the announcement of 1,600 more homes to be built on occupied Palestinian land from which Arabs will be forcibly kept out. He has made it plain he will not loosen his grip by an inch, announcing: "Even if [Palestinian President] Abu Mazen comes along and says he's ready to sign a peace deal on the spot, we will restore

    • Odd logic. British laws in the Palantine forbid Jews to own firearms. Yet the same British gave unlimited supply of firearms to arabs in the guise of "law enforcement".

    intersting comment about the local palestine arabs made by the royal commisson on palestine..

    The Palestine Royal Report highlights additional differences between the Mandates:

  • Time is on the Arab side in this conflict.
