A new Palestinian Authority (PA) was established. Arafat agreed to enforce Israeli authority. Occupation hell continued. It still does. UN upgrade changes nothing.
Peace and nonviolence aren't possible because Israel won't tolerate them. Nor does America.
" It will be interesting to see if the Palestinians now use their new UN status to harass Israelis in venues such as the International Criminal Court. Such tactics are aimed at making everyday life increasingly unbearable for Israelis"."
It's shocking at what ends up in print. Journal editors want Jews alone afforded rights. They want Palestinians to obey their Israeli master.
They want them to accept occupation harshness. They want decades of Israeli terror to continue unimpeded. Anything less is Palestine's "make-believe world," they say.
It's hard believing this stuff gets published. It's hard imagining editors would allow it. It's harder imagining they'd sell their souls for a buck. They do it every day they show up for work. Media scoundrels operate this way.
