Skip to comments.US Warns PA Statehood Bid Would Jeopardize Peace Process

The Palestinian Authority's bid for statehood at the United Nations next month would jeopardize the peace process with Israel, U.S. ambassador Susan Rice said Monday during a Security Council debate on the Middle East.
The United States was able to stop the PAs bid for statehood last year by threatening a veto at the Security Council. This time, however, they are seeking recognition as a non-member state, similar to the Vatican, which only needs approval by the General Assembly and is not subject to veto.
Unilateral actions, including initiatives to grant Palestinians non-member state observer status at the United Nations, would only jeopardize the peace process and complicate efforts to return the parties to direct negotiations, Rice said. Any efforts to use international fora to prejudge final status issues that can only be resolved directly by the parties will neither improve the daily lives of Palestinians nor foster the trust essential to make progress towards a two-state solution.
Rice did not miss an opportunity to denounce Israel for continued settlement activity and demand that the Jewish state take a more active role in combating anti-Palestinian violence and extremist hate crimes.

"I'm sorry, sir. I--"
"Madame. I am a woman. Or have you forgotten? Do I need to remind you again?"
"S-s-Madame, that will not be necessary."
"I beg to differ. So you found my ass? Good. Now let's get going on your next assignment."
"Sob. Yes, si-Madame."
"Take 'em off, agent Mulder."
"Excuse me while I slip into my meter maid costume, and I heard that, Mulder."
I’m tempted to say a pox on just about everybody’s house in this affair, except Israel’s.
In Israel, a pox on Bibi. A pox on Ehud. A pox on Mofaz. A pox on Avigdor. A pox on...
I mean, why should Susan Rice be warning the PA, such as it is, not to make a fool of itself requesting whatever it pleases before the UN if that’s what it wishes. Of course she’s just trying to insulate Obama from the inevitable heat. What peace process. All I can see is a shuck and jive while embassies burn process.
The planned murder of the Ambassador by Rice, Clinton and
Obama fits into this.
This was all planned to help Obama’s re-election
since the facts are all against it.
English is too imprecise. “Piece” and “peace” sound exactly alike, leading to considerable confusion. The piece process is in full swing. The peace process was never even contemplated, except to the extend that the PLO has made peace with Saudi Arabia. They have their fiefdom, so don’t need to extort quite as much money from the oil sheikhdoms, and the hell with the Jews AND the “Palestinians,” who are both getting screwed.
peace is in pieces
