Yesterday, President Bush told the Pally president that he would push Israel for a Palestinian state and called Mahmoud Abbas a "man of peace".
Well, I have a couple of things to point out.
1. The Pally's won't even recognize the country that's been set up since 1948 and that has successfully defended it's borders from attack numerous times called Israel. And we're supposed to let these geographical geniuses have their own country?
2. Seems that the Palestinian leaders either didn't compare notes before their speeches, or they are speaking out of both sides of their mouths to the media during his visit to the US. In one interview Ismail Haniyeh, the Pally PM says that they wouldn't recognize Israel, but in front of the UN, Pally president Abbas said that they WOULD recognize Israel.
This just goes to show everyone how moronic these people are, and how stupid the people who still support them are. Send one guy to address the Hamas and tell them what they want to hear, send another guy in front of the world media and the UN and tell them what THEY want to hear. Oh, and keep that money flowing. That'd be the money that stopped flowing to the Palestinian Authority when Hamas took over. Or at least slowed considerably.
I myself think that subliminally the Palestinians already recognize Israel. They're sitting in a cafe, having coffee after they've planned a bombing. They hear an unfamiliar sound and at the last second recognize "Hey, isn't that an Israeli helicopter?"
At that point, that's one of the last things to go through their mind. That and explosives, shrapnel, and other debris from the missile launched at them.
