When Kosher Pigs Fly

Apparently, Abu Mazen has lost his mind. Not that I'm surprised, mind you.

Exclusive from DEBKAfile’s Palestinian and Middle East sources: Abbas sends draft resolution to Algiers Arab summit opening Monday demanding Israel withdraw to 1949 Armistice Lines and accept armistice regime.

DEBKAfile: Palestinian leader wants Israel to cede all pre-1967 land – plus E. Jerusalem, Latrun, Sea of Galilee shore, southern Arava to Palestinian state - and then accept armistice instead of peace.

I love how he feels he's in a position to make such ridiculous demands. Then again, maybe he does have a reason to think he can.

Sharon’s difficulty in rejecting this proposal out of hand is that Abbas is using Bush’s statement after his April 14, 2004 summit with Sharon as reference: US president then cited 1949 armistice lines for Israeli withdrawal and Sharon did not query citation.

This whole disengagement with the hope that peace will follow is looking more suicidal by the day. I realize that there have to be negotiations -- that Israelis can't live without hope that one day there will be peace. Yet with every subsequent news article released, we are learning more and more about the duplicity of the Palestinians. They don't want peace with Israel. They view it as a hudna until their weapon reserves are back up to speed for war. They want their fellow terrorists all released from jail (considering how they're supposed to show they can control their population, you'd think they'd like them to stay where they are). They want to move the terror masterminds from Damascus to Gaza once the area becomes Juderein (free of Jews). My own government frightens me with talk of the Palestinians needing a contiguous state. Why? To defend themselves from Israelis? Who do we think is more of the aggressor here? Who needs a contiguous state more? Israel! What in the world has Arafat 2.0 done to hold up his end of the Roadmap? I cannot begin to understand why, when nothing has been done to disarm the terrorists, that control of towns has been handed over, that terrorists have been released from prison and unrealistic demands from the PA are made daily, that anyone is even bothering with his mockery of a peace process?

Can the Palestinians make it any more obvious that they don't want a state next to Israel but rather in place of Israel? This whole thing infuriates me beyond reason -- and I don't even live in Israel! How people like Caroline Glick and Naomi Ragen (whose most recent article shows her depression over the situation) can even get up in the morning is an amazing testament to the durability of the Israeli spirit.

Did he also demand that Israel stop sending orders, via invisible laser beam, for him to kill the moon people before they begin to attack the magic palace under the sea?

Seriously, if this turns out to be true—and I have my doubts—then Arafat 2 needs some comprehensive mental health assistance. I don't know if even the EU could swallow folderol like this.

Haha patrick. Exactly.

It does boggle the mind that he would think this could fly. Perhaps he's trying to take a position so outrageous so that when negotiations start, it will whittle back to what he really wants?

If this is true, I don't know what to say. I am furious just thinking it may be true. In fact, I will be sending off an e-mail in a little bit to the President expressing that.

I too have some doubts. I have even less doubts that Sharon would accept it no matter what Bush said about the 1949 lines.

"Perhaps he's trying to take a position so outrageous so that when negotiations start, it will whittle back to what he really wants?"

If true, I would say that is a good bet.
