The state of Israel for over fifty years was willing to negotiate with Arab nations in order to end its conflict with other countries in the Middle East. There were Israel leaders who became frustrated at their inability to find Palestinians interested in achieving peace. Fast forward to 2010 and now it is Israel which refuses to engage in open discussions with Palestinian leaders. Fatah leaders are pleased with reports the European Union is prepared within two years to proclaim the existence of an independent Palestinian nation. Nabil Sha’ath of Fatah’s Central Committee praised France for adopting a new attitude which focuses on peace in the Middle East and will not allow Prime Minister Nettanyahu to continue his procrastination.
French Foreign Minister, Bernard Kouchner noted his nation was currently training Palestinian police “OIt follows that one can envision the proclamation soon of a Palestinian state and the immediate recognition by the international community.”
Is anyone in Israel listening?
