Netanyahu "I will continue to work tirelessly for peace. It’s time that you (Abbas) join this effort."

President Abbas,
Since over the past several years, you refused to meet me and sit down and negotiate peace, I hope you’ll hear this message.

First, your advisor, Sultan Abu al Einein recently called to slit the throat of every Israeli.

Three days later, a Palestinian terrorist turned these words into action when he slit the throat of a 13-year-old beautiful girl, Hallel Yaffa Ariel, as she slept.

She was a little, innocent girl.
She didn't deserve this.

I ask that you fire this advisor because advocating genocide is not consistent with peace.

Second, your party recently praised a terrorist on Facebook who murdered 24 civilians, innocent Israelis in cold blood.

I ask that you to pick up the phone and instruct your party's social media manager to stop praising mass murderers.
Impressionable children read these posts.

They should be taught harmony, not hate.
Such words seriously harm the chances of peace.

Third, next week the Palestinian Authority will dedicate a monument to Abu Sukar. Abu Sukar murdered 15 people by detonating a refrigerator filled with explosives on a busy Jerusalem street.

Rather than dedicate a statue to a mass-murderer, I ask that you consider honoring a champion of co-existence.

This will help educate future generations to love peace over war, compassion over violence.
It will also help convince Israelis that they have a true partner for peace.

Fourth, the PLO currently pays a monthly salary to anyone who murders Jews.

This money provides direct incentive to commit terror.
I ask that you stop paying murderers and instead use this money to fund co-existence education, teach tolerance not terror.

Fifth, every Israeli and Palestinian child deserves a life of hope, of tranquility and opportunity.

I will continue to work tirelessly for peace.
It’s time that you join this effort.

Now that's a perfect message and it sums up the difference between Israel's leaders and the palestinian leaders

Abbas wrote his PHD thesis claiming that the holocaust never happened. When someone is that far gone in the head, how do you negotiate with him?

Also the Hamas leaders are living in big walled estate houses in Qatar. They take in hundreds of millions each year of money that is supposed to go to the people of Gaza. By now, most if not all of the leaders of Hamas, are billionaires. Peace would cost them a fortune, literally.

Abbas supports ethnic cleansing of jews and is a parasite secretly earning millions to build himself a palace and a lifestyle that no other Palestinians can even dream about. Hamas needs the conflict to continue so they can stay in luxury in their mansions in Qatar.

People talk about Netanyahu being right wing. Compared to the leaders of PLO and Hamas, Netanyahu is a free love, dope smoking, hippy.

There are the problems that no one wants to know about in the west in case they have to accept not everything is the fault of jews in the Israeli-Palestine conflict.

For the record if people in the west actually gave a damn about palestinians, which they clearly don't, they would have been screaming about ISIS killing at least 10,000 and probably more palestinians, in the camps in Syria. No jews were involved so the loudest voices in the west were silent, as they don't care about the palestinians in reality.

Whatever corruption goes on in the PLO and Hamas, as I am sure it does, it is not an excuse for Israeli crimes.

OK, I will bite. What about Palestinian crimes? They tend to be at minimum an order of magnitude beyond anything in Israel to a few orders of magnitude worse than in Israel depending on what we are talking about such as land rights, womens rights, disabled rights, lgbt rights, etc.

Some quick questions.

Do you consider the constant killing of LGBT people in Palestinian areas to be acceptable?

Do you oppose Palestinian LGBT people getting asylum in Israel, namely Tel Aviv?

Do you oppose the legal ban on jews owning land in PLO and Hamas controlled areas, or even Jordan for that matter?

Do you support stoning to death or throwing down wells of women who are deemed fallen, as in Palestine?

Do you support or oppose the teaching of children that all jews have to be killed in PLO and Hamas areas?

Well?

Yes of course I condemn those crimes. Why would I not? I condemn all Palestinian crimes, human rights abuses and terrorism.

Then why are you constantly singling out Israel?

The biggest killer of Palestinians recently has been ISIS, over 10,000 and rising. Once the mass graves are properly investigated, that number will rise substantially. Why are there not demonstrations against ISIS and calls to wipe ISIS of the face of the Earth, like there are calls to wipe Israel of the map?

Ever think about that?

B'Tselem Investigation: Soldier killed Iyad Hamed in Silwad though he posed no danger to anyone | B'Tselem

On 26 August 2016, at about 12:00 Noon, soldiers shot and killed Iyad Zakaria Muhammad Hamed, 37, married with two children, close to a military observation tower overlooking Route 60. In the first of several versions reported by the media, the military initially claimed that Hamed had fire shots at the tower. This was later replaced by the claim that he threw a Molotov cocktail. Eventually, the military alleged that Hamed had run toward them while they were on patrol near the tower, and that they performed the suspect apprehension procedure, which included firing into the air.

Because I don't see anyone on here making excuses for ISIS. Nearly everyone supports wiping out ISIS.

With respect to Israel people actually try to defends Israel's crimes. Hence why they are the subject of intense debate.

OK, explain to me the reason you do not oppose Hamas sending over 10,000 rockets in to Israel?

Why do you consider that acceptable?

"I will continue to work tirelessly for peace."
By peace it will be the force of tanks, air strikes and guns.
By peace it will be the seizure of your lands.
By peace it will be the shooting of your people and your children.
By peace it will be the starvation of your families by sanction.

War is peace.
Freedom is slavery.
Ignorance is strength.
The "peace" of the victor, when the vanquished peoples no longer present a threat of retribution or resistance.

When there was a vote on bombing ISIS in the EU parliament, European United Left–Nordic Green Left (SF and Ming) voted against it.

PBP opposes attacking ISIS.

I think most pro-Palestinian posters condemn it. I certainly condemn it.

Palestinian rockets have killed about 30 Israeli civilians in the past 15 years. That is awful and it should be condemned. But the Israelis have used these attacks to justify totally disproportionate attacks on the Palestinians, killing thousands of civilians, while at the same time taking more of their land and making a Palestinian state unviable.

Also it is important to note that Israel is illegally occupying Palestinian territory and is actively stealing their land and has been doing so since 1967. It is important to consider this context when discussing the rocket attacks.

If you don't fight you don't win.

Would their be a Jewish state today without all this?
I am aware the State of Israel owes its existence to terrorist organizations like Lehi and Irgun. I am also aware of the hypocrisy of the Israeli shills when they condemn Hamas terrorism but refuse to acknowledge this fact.

Still I don't support terrorism as a rule. That is the deliberate targeting of civilians. Not all Hamas activity is terrorist, but the portion that is I condemn.

When there was a vote on bombing ISIS in the EU parliament, European United Left–Nordic Green Left (SF and Ming) voted against it.

PBP opposes attacking ISIS.
We also opposed many of the interventions by the US and others that have made a mess of the region.
