These leaked documents demonstrate what many people of conscience have known for a long time now; The Israelis do not want peace. Every time there has been a breakthrough or a threat that a deal could be made, the Israelis balk, a la Taba or the Arab League Proposals or Hamas's statement that it would recognize Israel. Israel wants it cake and eat it too, and of course their PR machine blames the Palestinians every step of the way.

The argument made by Gillibrand et al that such a resolution at the UN would undermine peace talks is absurd. The Israelis continue to build illegally and embarrass the US since our policy has made it clear that settlement construction violates past Israeli deals and international law. The language of the resolution matches stated US demands and what this resolution does is expose the intransigence from the US ; the stall tactics are over and if the US vetoes this measure then the US needs to excuse itself from ALL future negotiations.

This article illustrates yet again a double-standard in US foreign policy. If another state did this to the US it would be called cyber-terrorism. When the US, and Israel, does it the rationalization that the US is doing a good deed is used.

To see these little children propagandized by their Israeli parents and teachers with such poison based on lies is truly disgusting. You wonder where the hate comes from that drives the Israeli policies of today. Clearly from the last generation or two of this continuous indoctrination. A child's mind is easy to corrupt and if this is a representative sampling of what actually goes on then it is not hard to comprehend Israeli attitudes.

So when Israel was just criticized for demolishing a Palestinian hotel and commencing construction of new units in East Jerusalem for Jewish-only residents, its defense was that the hotel was bought with private funds and the development of the new units also paid for with private funds. Now a Palestinian man is trying to buy stake in a company to largely do the same thing, and what is the Israeli response? An act of treason? The door swings both ways racist Israelis!

Israel's Rules of Engagement? Shoot an unarmed Palestinian who just went through an Israeli checkpoint because he is carrying a water bottle. Why did they not just check out the bottle since he passed through a checkpoint? Add another dead Palestinian to the list of Israeli murders. How ironic this guy is going to work on a farm in the illegal settlements, land stolen by and occupied with Israelis.
