PR Stunt or Stonewalling Peace
By Micah Halpern

Sunday July 12, 2009

I'm Predicting:

It is no surprise that the Israeli Prime Minister's invite to meet PA President Mahmoud Abbas was declared a PR stunt by Palestinian advisers.
While it is true that Netanyahu is an unlikely candidate to pursue peace, history has shown that only the Israeli right has the mandate and political power to achieve peace.

Maybe Netanyahu is playing a PR game of his own.
But why should that disturb Palestinian leadership?
Netanyahu has already declared his support for two states.

It disturbs Palestinians because for the first time in a long time, they have been outmaneuvered.
Now the Palestinians are actually lobbying Arab world leadership not to accept the US request to begin normalizing relations with Israel.
Palestinian leadership wants more concession from Israel and more pressure brought on Israel without giving up anything on their side.

If Palestinians were really interested in peace they would be reacting differently.
We will see more of this bobbing and weaving from the PA.
