Fatah, like Hamas, would like Israel to somehow disappear, but (being “moderate”) they are prepared to wait a bit longer to see it happen. The EU is still no friend of Israel, but in its recent vote it gave Fatah and Abbas a well-deserved snub
Oslo marked a quick and extreme conversion from old beliefs to a new faith in miraculously turning enemies into friends by giving land away. But Israel is never thanked for it, indeed it is hated more, in the MidEast and the West. Surely there's a lesson?
Much of Britain's media and political class reverted to shabby, old form after the latest Palestinian terror attack. It was similar in Europe and America. But Israelis are being killed just because they are Jews. It is staggering that the post-Holocaust West doesn't get it
Voting for a Palestinian state at a time when Islamic State-level terrorists like Hamas are in the ascendancy risks making Westminster less the mother of parliaments, and more the mother of utter (pro-terror) stupidity. UPDATE: They did it!
