    Palestinian official: Israel's new unity cabinet must freeze all settlement activity


    From Haaretz News by DPA

    "Israel's incoming unity government must halt all settlement activity on occupied land, if it wants peace negotiations, a Palestinian official said Tuesday.

    "This is the right time for the Israeli government to reach peace with the Palestinian people by immediately accepting the requirements of the peace process," said Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' spokesman, Nabil Abu Rudeineh.

    "This demands an immediate halt to settlement activities in all the Palestinian territories," he said in a statement on the official Palestinian Wafa news agency.

    Earlier on Tuesday, Netanyahu and Mofaz reached a surprise agreement to form a national unity government, a decision which came as the Knesset was preparing to disperse for early elections, which were expected to be scheduled for September 4.

    Speaking at a joint press conference with Mofaz on Tuesday, Netanyahu said the unity government was formed to tackle the" toughest questions facing Israel."

    "And here were are together, Shaul and I and the rest of the coalition, saying we're pulling together for four main issues: to pass a fair and equal replacement of the Tal Law; to pass a responsible budget; to change the system of governance; and, lastly, to try and promote a responsible peace process."

    Not biologically possible, if you ask me.





    I'm afraid your right !!!

    Pressure from other High Israeli Officials though, has been mounting lately to put forth more serious efforts toward peace. Its more likely that Abbas will have to carry out his threat to return to the UN, where by far the majority have seen through Nutty Yayhoo's tactics to avoid making peace with the Palestinians for the sake of stealing more land for settlements.

    But as LIL'AIPAC will tell us, Its the Palestinians who are insisting on the settlement theft stopping that won't 'compromise' and don't 'want peace', Yesiree that's how its done, blame the one's your stealing from because after all, if their land wasn't there for the taking the Israeli's wouldn't be stealing it, RIGHT ? Now sort that twisted logic out ?

    Kadima claims to support a Palestinian state...but it's hard not to be skeptical that they actually want to work toward that goal.

    Kadima is after all a split from Likud, formed by Ariel Sharon. Ehud Olmert, Tzipi Livni and Shaul Mofaz (current leader of Kadima) are all former Likud members. The Gaza War in 2008-2009, as well as the war against Lebanon in 2006, happened under a Kadima government.

    Oh Damn !!! This doesn't sound good then, I didn't know about this. With this fact you bring up, its looking more and more like Abbas will in the end be forced to go before the UN General Assembly for at least parital membership and recognition as a state. There he will find plenty who've had their eyes opened to Israeli leadership intransigence on the Peace Process.
