Ingen lär väl ha missat att Osama bin Laden är död. Men något som vissa kanske missat är att han nu hyllas av Hamas, Fatahs nya fredspartner. Från Fox News:
The leader of the Palestinian militant Hamas government in Gaza has condemned the United States for killing Al Qaeda chief Usama bin Laden.
Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh says the operation is “the continuation of the American oppression and shedding of blood of Muslims and Arabs.”
Kanske kan detta få några att öppna ögonen för vad Hamas står för. Genom att göra gemensam sak med Hamas har Fatah omöjliggjort fred.
Benny Morris kommenterar:
Palestinian strategy is rather simple […]: Because of the demographic threat (an Arab majority in a Jewish state) and because of international pressure for self-determination for the Palestinians and an end to Israel’s military occupation, Israelis will eventually accept, however reluctantly, a Palestinian state encompassing the Palestinian-majority territories of the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem.
Israel will eventually unilaterally withdraw (as it has already done from the Gaza Strip). So why offer or give the Israelis recognition and peace in exchange?
Rather, once this mini-state is achieved, unfettered by any international obligations like a peace treaty—and having promised nothing in exchange for their statehood—the Palestinians will be free to continue their struggle against Israel, its complete demise being their ultimate target.
