Why Is Everyone Angry With Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu? If only it was because he killed 500 children last summer.
Netanyahu's last-ditch lurch to the right -- vowing that the Palestinian state would never be recognized on his watch -- may have helped him clinch victory but sets up an awkward diplomatic scenario, analysts said.
"A major part of the peace process with the Palestinians has been to maintain the pretense, the make-believe idea, that it will eventually lead to a two-state solution," said Daniel Levy, director of the Middle East and North Africa Programme at the European Council on Foreign Relations. Of course, the truth has always been in plain sight:
"the most spectacular event in the contemporary history of Palestine, in a way more spectacular than the creation of the [Palestinian] Arab population. . . .
The opportunities opened up by the present reality for a lasting and radical solution of the most vexing problem of the Jewish state [referring to the Palestinian Arabs inhabiting area allotted to the "Jewish state" by the 1947 UN Partition plan], are so far-reaching, as to take one's breath away. The reversion of the status quo ante is unthinkable." (1949, The First Israelis, p. 29) And why should they...no one can make them do it.

  1. Funny stuff, Genie.

    I've been thinking about you blog; Uprooted Palestinians, was taken down by Google and made 'private' due to 'violations', so, the same thing might happen to your bog... a move to WordPress might be in order.
    I find WordPress to be a cool place to be.
    Uprooted Palestinians, moved their blog [which he already had at WordPress but was not using it much] fully to WordPress. Nahida is there to as is Iqbal.
    Just a thought... maybe get a URL and move your stuff there and post on both sites. WordPress has a lot more action.

    Salam Alaikum

  2. Salam miss Gypsy! Remember how we use to escalate our conversations on your blog? We agreed that one can't say "Israel" without the f word whether in front of it or after.

    1. Yes, I sure do remember; we had so much fun. Miss you lots.

      I opened up comments again on my two blogs at WordPress; it surprised me to no end how on earth I ended up with 22 followers short of three thousand between my two blogs:

      http://palestinerose.wordpress.com

      http://aplacecalledlove.wordpress.com

      That is why I suggested you take your blog to WordPress, so many people follow it's surprising; with every post I get a few more followers. There is a method to it, though. I was asked to contribute at: http://deliberation.info
      and I did, however, there was a chick there who was overbearing who also contributes posts and comments so I left. I did learn a lot about WordPress there -- the fellow is a cyber expert specializing in WordPrees. He makes templates, knows SEO, etc.

      Hey, 'Doc Jazz', Tariq, asked me to join SpyBook, I did join again but found it too boring. Maybe if you are still there I will join and we can chat there while being spied upon! Let me know and I will reactivate my account there.
