    Palestinian Official: No End of Conflict After Palestinian State

    http://blog.camera.org/archives/2011/09/post_76.html

    There was a time when Palestinian leaders sought to conceal their goal of overrunning the Jewish state in misleading commentary for Western audiences that implied a willingness to accept coexistence with a sovereign Israel. Now, evidently, times have changed and blunt statements are deemed safe to make. A remarkable interview in Lebanon's Daily Star (September 15, 2011) illustrates the shift. According to Abdullah Abdullah, Palestinian ambassador to Lebanon, Palestinians would not all become automatic citizens of any future Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza. The story reports:
    This would not only apply to refugees in countries such as Lebanon, Egypt, Syria and Jordan or the other 132 countries where Abdullah says Palestinians reside. Abdullah said that even Palestinian refugees who are living in [refugee camps] inside the [Palestinian] state, they are still refugees. They will not be considered citizens. Abdullah said that the new Palestinian state would "absolutely not" be issuing Palestinian passports to refugees.
    Abdullah's willingness to leave Palestinians stateless in camps even in territory under Palestinian authority is spelled out further for anyone who's missed the point:
    The right of return that Abdullah says is to be negotiated would not only apply to those Palestinians whose origins are within the 1967 borders of the state, he adds. The state is the 1967 borders, but the refugees are not only from the 1967 borders. The refugees are from all over Palestine. When we have a state accepted as a member of the United Nations, this is not the end of the conflict. This is not a solution to the conflict. This is only a new framework that will change the rules of the game.
    Is that clear? "When we have a state accepted as a member of the United Nations, this is not the end of the conflict" just a change in the rules of the game. Sound like the PLO's 1974 "phased plan" for the destruction of Israel?
    Something, indeed, is changing when an "ambassador" can give an interview such as this and there's not a ripple in the Western media.

    Senior official Tawfik Tirawi has also said that Fatah hasn't abandoned the armed struggle option against Israel.
    From what I have observed, the palestinians have never negotiated in good faith. All they do is demand more.

    The goal is the same goal. The only thing that changes are the means, and nothing along the way that has the word "peace" on it is binding.

    Here it is copied from Al Fatah Seven Points (1969)

    "In any event, the acceptance of the resolution of November 22 1967, or any pseudo-political solution, by whatsoever party, is in no way binding upon the Palestinian people., which is determined to pursue mercilessly its struggle against foreign occupation and Zionist colonisation."

    That pretty much sums up the Palestinians - they have no credibility, only hatred for Israel. Their sole aspiration is the murdering of Jews and the destruction of The State of Israel. Meanwhile back in Blunder-Land, the West, they listen and see only that which causes them to keep their heads buried deeper in the sand or worse. The West will do anything to take the heat off themselves, by tossing it back into Israel's face.
