It’s comforting to know that the Palestinians wouldn’t let a little thing like a peace conference interfere with their plans:
Just a day after Israeli and Palestinian leaders at the Annapolis peace conference pledged to negotiate a peace treaty by the end of 2008, Mahmoud Abbas’s Palestinian Authority continues to paint a picture for its people of a world without Israel.
The description of all of the state of Israel as “Palestine” is not coincidental, and is part of a formal, systematic educational approach throughout the Palestinian Authority. This uniform message of a world without Israel is repeated in school books, children’s programs, crossword puzzles, video clips, formal symbols, school and street names, etc. The picture painted for the Palestinian population, both verbally and visually, is of a world without Israel.
The fact that this campaign continues before the ink on the Annapolis agreement is even dry appears to contradict the central promise of the Palestinians at the Annapolis conference: that Israel has a right to exist.
It’s a very old story: the Pals say one thing to their naive English-speaking masters, and another to their Arabic-speaking peons. We’ve seen it too often to be surprised anymore.
Blame it on their lying, cheating, cold dead beating, two timing,
Double dealing, mean, mistreating, loving hearts.
