Annapolis was yet another huge victory for International Jewry, as witness this bizarre paragraph in Bush’s speech, setting out the obligations on Israel (my emphasis in red):
“The Israelis must do their part. They must show the world that they are ready to begin – to bring an end to the occupation that began in 1967 through a negotiated settlement. This settlement will establish Palestine as a Palestinian homeland, just as Israel is a homeland for the Jewish people. Israel must demonstrate its support for the creation of a prosperous and successful Palestinian state by removing unauthorized outposts, ending settlement expansion, and finding other ways for the Palestinian Authority to exercise its responsibilities without compromising Israel's security.”
We’re right back to the original Zionist goal of the bantustanized Palestinian ‘state’, a political entity in name only that can be whittled down as the Israelis please. The joint statement is based on the ‘road map’, which has been a process of establishing impossible preconditions to any agreement, preconditions which all lie on the Palestinians. The only substantive change is that the Americans have unilaterally assumed control of judging whether the preconditions have been met, a judgment which originally belonged to the full quartet. The standard Zionist plan of continuing to negotiate to buy more time to weaken the Palestinians is still in full force and effect. They can drag it out until Bush is a completely lame duck, claim some attack is an ‘existential threat’ making a final agreement impossible, and wait for the safer days of President Rudary.
Besides the Palestinians and the Arab States (who have suffered grievous loss of reputation by being tricked, again, by the Zionists into selling out the Palestinians through preoccupation with worrying about the phony issue of Iran), the big loser is the United States itself, an Empire with no power. Watch for the countries of the world to continue to treat American demands with disdain.
