No Relief for Palestine in New Year


Israel terrorizes Palestine.

by Stephen Lendman

Gaza remains isolated under siege. No relief in sight looms. Occupation harshness is policy. Peace is a four-letter word. 

Dominant Israeli hardliners scorn it. So does Washington. Violence and instability advance their agenda. Conflict will continue in 2013. So will Palestinian suffering.

Settlement construction continues unabated. Netanyahu wants it accelerated. He wants all valued parts of Judea and Samaria under Israeli control. Jerusalem is Israel's exclusive capital, he insists.

His notion of Palestinian self-determination is none at all. Rhetorically he claims otherwise. On January 1, Israel National News headlined "Netanyahu Stands behind 'Palestinian State' Vision." 

Palestine, of course, achieved statehood in November 1988. Netanyahu has his own vision. It's conditional on "a public, binding and unequivocal Palestinian recognition of Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people."
