Middle East peace in a year: If that happens I will happily eat my 1, 000 stories saying it will never happen!
Middle East peace 'in a year'
A return to United Nations resolution 181, 1947? Netanyahu spoke of how the security challenges facing Israel have “changed” over the last decade. He referred specifically to “the rise of Iran and its proxies,” a clear reference to Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah in Lebanon, and to “the rise of missile warfare.” What about Syria? Abbas can't speak for them. Assad, in Paris: Israel doesn't want peace with Syria
What about who is now on the list of intractable issues that have stymied decades of Mideast negotiations, Iran backed, and will not be left out of negations as their slaughter of innocent civilians just before the meeting in Washington illustrated. Peace? I don't know about that! 'Mideast peace process poses a strategic threat to Iran'
Hamas will never agree to be ignored and isolated, and Hamas is firmly in control of the Gaza Strip, one of the two territories that are supposed to be part of a future Palestinian state. What about that little detail? Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu might be partners in peace but Iran and Hamas are partners in Israel's destruction and Iran's version of new middle east order not ours, Israel's and Abbas's. Ahmadinejad says middle east peace talks will fail and Israel on the verge of collapse
There can be no peace that leaves the 1.5 million people of Gaza out and Hamas controls them with Iran's backing. Israel and the international community shun Hamas as a terrorist group and would have to make a tough decision to engage with the militants who refuse to recognize Israel's right to exist saying their resistance is continuous. Despite saying we will never talk to terrorists we have in the past but not this time.
You know from numerous discussions here that Iran is involved in every Middle Eastern country not just Yemen, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia where they have corrupted elections for Shiite interests in Iraq, backing rebels in Yemen, and instigating attacks on Saudi oil fields. Bush freed Iran to instigate far and wide and are even training Taliban on their border. Any new actions will only serve to worsen their instigation and cause them to cause chaos everywhere they can and further Bush's total Middle East breakdown Period. Iran will never settle for peace with Israel only for peace in the middle east with a non existent Israel.
