Arafatization of Abbas two

As I predicted, Sharon has ordered all Israeli government officials to cut ties with the Palestinian Authority until Mahmoud Abbas takes steps to curb terrorism. This is based on exceedingly vague ties alleged to extend from the Palestinian Authority to those responsible for Thursday's terrorist attack. The arafatization of Abbas has begun. The only surprise is that Sharon didn't even wait a week to ensure that he has no 'negotiating partner'. Here is Genesis 15:18 from the Jewish Bible:

"In that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying: 'Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates;'"

and 1 Kings 5:1 (the 'River' is the Euphrates):

"And Solomon ruled over all the kingdoms from the River unto the land of the Philistines, and unto the border of Egypt; they brought presents, and served Solomon all the days of his life."

The reason for the settlements in the West Bank - what they call Judea and Samaria - is obviously not to stop terrorism, as it only encourages a reaction from the Palestinians. It is to begin the process of claiming the land promised to Abram and once ruled by Solomon. The 'logic' that requires the theft of the West Bank from the Palestinian people inescapably also requires the extension of Greater Israel from Egypt to the Euphrates. Everything, and I mean everything, that the current government of Israel does is directed towards the Project of creating Greater Israel, beginning with seizing Judea and Samaria. If Abbas is a 'negotiating partner' the Project is ruined, as the State of Palestine will stop everything in its tracks. Therefore, it is necessary to find an excuse not to negotiate with him. The World can watch the Project continue until it causes a world war, world-wide economic catastrophe, and millions of deaths, or it can put a stop to it now by forcing Israel to start to act in good faith towards a negotiated settlement.
