Israel wants occupation legitimacy and permanence. Palestinians are entitled to sovereign freedom. They deserve world support.
Their rights matter as much as Jewish ones. International law principles are inviolable. They demand ending decades of occupation, colonization and apartheid.
They require treating Arabs and Jews equally. Resolving decades of conflict depends on doing the right thing. There's no other way.
"Netanyahu's (E1) zoning approval is hardly a 'fatal blow' as some claim," say Post editors.
"The exaggerated rhetoric (pressures) Abbas to make a 'freeze' (conditional) for peace talks."
Expect him to drop it altogether. Doing so will add greater betrayal to his resume. Post editors urge it.
"If Security Council members are really interested in progress toward Palestinian statehood, they will press Abbas to stop using settlements as an excuse for intransigence - and cool their own overheated rhetoric."
Post editors reflect the worst of media scoundrels. They support wrong over right. They ignore inviolable international law. Under the Constitution's Supremacy Clause, it's US law.
