By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
I am in favor of the renewal of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians. I think that peace is
preferable to war. But I am not hopeful about these talks.
The word is that the talks will begin in Washington, DC on this coming Tuesday.
Here is one of the reasons why I am not hopeful:
Palestine Media Watch has made us aware that on their official Fatah Facebook page Palestinian leadership is teaching the masses about, and celebrating the murders of, sixty seven Israelis and they are honoring the murderer.
The Palestinian Authority is honoring Abdallah Barghoutti, a master bomb maker, who successfully created the bombs that ripped through the Sbarro restaurant in Jerusalem, the Ben Yehudah pedestrian mall in Jerusalem, the Hebrew University cafeteria and his list goes on. Look at the list below, it comes straight from the PA Facebook page.
How on earth do Israel and the United States expect
The following is the
"The brave prisoner, Abdallah Barghouti, who has the longest [prison] sentence in the history of the Palestinian cause"
