4 Bibi quotes

4 Bibi quotes from 2001, speaking to illegal settlers, while he thinks the cameras are off:
  1. On the proper way to deal with the Palestinians: "beat them up, not once but repeatedly, beat them up so it hurts so badly, until it's unbearable".
  2. Discussing whether the Americans would block a large-scale attack on the Palestinians: "I know what America is. America is a thing you can move very easily, move it in the right direction. They won’t get in their way.”
  3. “They asked me before the election if I’d honor [the Oslo accords]. I said I would, but … I’m going to interpret the accords in such a way that would allow me to put an end to this galloping forward to the ’67 borders. How did we do it? Nobody said what defined military zones were. Defined military zones are security zones; as far as I’m concerned, the entire Jordan Valley is a defined military zone. Go argue.”
  4. Describing how he forced former U.S. Secretary of State Warren Christopher to agree to allow Israel to unilaterally determine which parts of the West Bank were military zones (note that the Jews have since, under Netanyahu, reclaimed Hebron): "They didn't want to give me that letter so I didn't give them the Hebron agreement [the agreement giving Hebron back to the Palestinians]. I cut the cabinet meeting short and said, 'I'm not signing.' Only when the letter came, during that meeting, to me and to Arafat, did I ratify the Hebron agreement. Why is this important? Because from that moment on, I de facto put an end to the Oslo accords."
Pretty much sums up why there is no peace agreement. Bibi is America's Partner For Peace!
