Paris conference – 1967 borders and 2-state solution

The Paris conference on peace in the Mid-East attracted representatives from 70 countries and organisations. They re-affirmed the principles of enforcing the pre-’67 borders and pursuing a 2-state solution. Either the delegates were an anachronism – or these in reality are the only basis for peace. The UK began its isolationist position here, sending no representatives.

For Arab citizens, the tent city protests are a bourgeois conflict over colonial spoils

Arab protests at being de-housed are dismissed as subverting the Jewish character of the state says Seraj Assi, while the Israeli housing protesters strain to prevent their cause being widened to include any factor which questions the character of their state. 2nd post here from blogger Fatma Emam who is saddened by the hostile Arab reaction to the Israeli protesters

‘Palestinian official’: we’ll drop demand for settlement freeze if talks resume

An AP Exclusive quotes a Palestinian official as saying they (the PA presumably) are offering to drop demands for a freeze on Israeli settlements if peace talks can begin on the basis of the 1967 borders as Obama proposed

“Netanyahu, are you crazy? We don’t want another war”.

On the eve of Naksa-day, 10-20,000 Israeli activists from many groups marched in Tel Aviv, for Palestinian statehood, for states based on the 1967 borders, against settlements, against war.

Texts twisted to ‘prove’ 1967 borders never existed
