Israel has a divine right to settlements, they suggest. On January 1, their editorial headlined "Overheated rhetoric on Israeli settlements," saying:
The reaction to recent settlement construction plans is "counterproductive" and overheated. It "reinforces two mistaken but widely held notions: that the settlements are the principle obstacle to (peace), and that further construction will make a Palestinian state impossible."
On November 15, 1988, Palestine achieved statehood. Most UN Member States recognize it.
Israel spurns peace. Netanyahu calls negotiating it "a waste of time." Decades of good faith Palestinian initiatives were spurned.
Conflict resolution is impossible without a reliable partner. Palestinians never had one. They don't now. Post editors understand. Instead of explaining, they conceal what what readers need to know.
They compound bad commentary with lies. Settlement policy changed after Oslo, they claim.
"Mr. Netanyahu's government, like several before it, has limited building almost entirely to areas that both sides expect Israel to annex through territorial swaps in an eventual settlement."
