Mahmoud Abbas has repeatedly demonstrated his commitment to the two-state solution, and his adherence to nonviolence.Yes, do tell us all about it. Any chance Liel would care to explain this recent case where Fatah, Abbas' movement, threatened to turn Tel Aviv into a fireball? Even Abbas' recent threat of a "political war" is an eyebrow raiser. There's also his recent threat to end security cooperation with Israel. Obviously, Liel's turned his back on these cases deliberately. At the end, he says:
Tomorrow, the British Parliament will vote on a bill that proposes the recognition of a Palestinian state. Such recognition will not harm Israeli interests. On the contrary, only the establishment of a sovereign Palestinian state will ensure the continued existence of the sovereign state of Israel along the green line, and will save us from our ongoing deterioration down the slippery slope of apartheid.I'm sure he's saying this deliberately too, and knows quite well it's not true. It's already harmed Israeli interests by providing a safe zone for terrorists, and will continue to do so, plus give them the chance to set up more rocket smuggling. Anyone who thinks it's not possible is as delusional as Liel is. Say, and why do I get the feeling he sees nothing with say, the Koran's verses condoning child-marriage?
