Take the US out of the “no peace” process.

18 02 2011

“ We had some success, at least for the moment, in not having that (resolution) arise there. And we will continue to employ the tools we have to make sure that continues to not happen” with these words Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg assured Chairwoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, perhaps the most anti-Arab, anti-Muslim and staunchest supporter of Israel and Zionist causes in Congress. Steinberg was referring to the Ramallah leadership efforts to bring the issue of Jewish settlements before the UN Security Council. Read the rest of this entry »

Salam Fayyad “state building” is not an ethnic joke!

15 02 2011

Mahmoud Abbas whose tenure as elected president of the Palestinian Authority expired over two years ago, and who has no legal or constitutional legitimacy accepted and then re-commissioned Salam Fayyad to form a new government. Of course the government of Salam Fayadh never received the legitimacy it needed since it did not receive the approval of the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC), which the PLO and Fatah leadership rendered inoperative after Hamas won and Fatah was badly routed in the election. With the support of Egypt’s Mubarak/Suleiman, Israel, the US and of course Fatah, the PLC came to a halt and for all practical purpose ceased to exist through the concerted efforts of the PLO Executive Committee and Fatah.

Time to bring the Jewish Occupation to an end, now!

13 02 2011

Poor Mahmoud Abbas and his Ramallah entourage, they must be feeling down on their luck. Ramallah leadership lost friends and allies left and right. It lost Ehud Olmert and Tizpi Livni who waged war on Gaza killing thousands and leveling Gaza to the ground and it lost a team that expanded the settlement at an accelerated rate and continued to build the Apartheid Wall. Ramallah also lost close confident and ally in Bin Ali and lost two close allies and confidants in Hosni Mubarak and Omar Suleiman, two men where were key architect to the siege of Gaza standing in the way of Palestinian reconciliations.  Ramallah not only lost close friends and allies it lost most favored destination (rest and recreation) in Sharm El-Sheik. Ramallah must be grieving and accepting condolences. Read the rest of this entry »

Obama’s many broken promises in the Middle East.

9 02 2011

When President Obama ran for office, America and the world looked for and prayed for change, a change that never came at least to the Middle East. It did not come to Iraq, did not come to Afghanistan, and certainly did not come to the Middle East conflict.  President Obama’s speech in Cairo was full of promise and hope, a promise that remained unfulfilled and a hope that vanished quickly.  Obama’s” wishy washy” management of Egypt “people’s revolution” showed the Arab and Muslim world that America is America, the world change but America will not change.
