PLO Debacle

The revelation in more than 1600 documents that the PLO was conceding, well, everything to the Israeli’s in order to gain control of a “state” is the end of the PLO as it has been known – or perhaps it will vanish like the Cheshire cat without the smile.

It should have been clear to everyone by now that Israeli had no intention of granting concessions to the two state processes, but would continue illegally seizing land for housing and crushing the rights of Palestinians. It had even privately obtained the PLO acquiescence to the new “state” without an army, navy or other military. In other words – no sovereignty. A sham. A continuation in perpetuity of Israeli apartheid.

Here’s a thought for the religiously fanatical in Hamas and Iran – recognize Israeli. Hoist them on their own petard. Recognition would remove the excuse that the US relies on to support Israel - to its own detriment -and would focus attention exclusively over Israeli policy of preventing statehood for Palestinians – the largest group of stateless people in the world. Use your brains and change the parameters of the game. Take the high ground.
