The Times of Israel: “This coming Friday, foreign ministers from some of the world’s most powerful countries, including the United States, Russia and Germany, as well as a handful of Arab states, will gather in Paris to discuss ways to reanimate the Israeli-Palestinian peace.
The two parties at the heart of the conflict will not send official representatives to this week’s conference, a precursor to a second gathering later this year that Israelis and Palestinians are urged to attend.”
Opinion: The Paris peace conference, like all the others before it, is dead on arrival.
The interesting part is that the representatives from the most powerful countries know that it cannot work, but simply cannot pass up another chance to blame Israel, and specifically Netanyahu.
The sheer absurdity of the Arab demands would be funny if they weren’t so tragic:
- A Jew-free Judea and East Jerusalem which will require 800,000 Jews to leave their homes
- A Jew-free corridor connecting Judea and Gaza which literally cuts Israel in half making it indefensible
- The right of return of 5-13 million Palestinian refugees for whom no Arab/Persian nation will allow citizenship
- A demand that Israel return to the 1967 borders and returning the Golan to Syria
Now, here’s the most incredible part: Those demands are precisely what the world’s most powerful countries want and precisely what the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is against (Genesis 12:3, Joel 3:1-2, Isaiah 11:11, Amos 9:23).
