Representatives of the Middle East Quartet will visit the region next week to meet with Israeli and Palestinian leaders and push forward with a renewed effort to revive the stalled peace process.
Envoys from the United States, the European Union, the United Nations and Russia will hold direct talks with officials in Jerusalem and Ramallah and explore “concrete actions” that are “consistent with prior agreements” in order to facilitate a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the group said. …
Members noted in the statement “that the intensifying threat of terrorism, sectarian extremism and radicalization in the Middle East reinforces the need to pursue a negotiated two-state solution,” and expressed “deep concern” about “recent violence and escalating tensions surrounding the holy sites in Jerusalem.”
Subject: Your note to the Mideast Quartet
Bibi, I cleaned up the English a bit for you.
Thank you for inviting yourselves to meddle in our affairs once again your concern, but next week doesn’t work for us. We are presently at war with the so-called Palestinians busy with urgent matters of national security and I will be unavailable to discuss how you want us to surrender the two-state solution.
We think that the accelerating chaos in the Middle East is just another reason that negotiating with the terrorists who are inciting the murder of Jews in our streets Palestinian Authority would be beyond stupid unproductive at this time.
We are aware that all of you aspire to see the Jewish state disappear a peaceful Mideast, and are doing your best to bring that about. I especially detest am grateful to President Obama, who has shown himself to be one of the greatest enemies of the Jewish people in history a friend and ally.
I will be pleased to let you know as soon as we have crushed the PLO and Hamas once and for all the current unrest subsides, and we can hang their murderous leaders from the gallows as they richly deserve sit down for serious talks.
Nothing is more vicious heartwarming than the way the whole world gets together at times like these to screw Israel work for peace.
Thanks for nothing caring.
Glad you have kept your sense of humor. We need that more than ever nowadays.
I am reminded of an old Gary Larson cartoon (“The Far Side”).
A man is standing in his living room, having just discovered that his living room window is shattered. Someone had apparently thrown a rock through it. He then finds the rock on his living room floor with a note attached. The note reads: “Rocks thrown through your window? Call Al’s Glass Repair!”
The PM’s aides need to recreate this cartoon (any royalties that would have to be paid to Mr. Larson would be money well spent). Then, it should be passed out to all of the members of the Quartet when the arrive.
And then they should be escorted out of the country. Immediately.
Alas, that is not what is going to happen.
So, what do you think is going to happen?
Now if he really had the baetseem to write that……well, than we’d know that aliens had abducted him and replaced him with a real leader.
Almost as if the whole thing were orchestrated!
I understand the incredible restraint Netanyahu operates under so as to not goad Obama into even worse (could it be worse?) behavior, and maybe there is an element of timing here when a lame duck president really can do no more harm–then at that moment the leaders of Israel will spring into action and start building and really putting down this terrorism and extend their rule over all of Judea and Samaria…
Your recent essays about the duties of sovereignty has to be foremost in the mind: Not exercising it will get more people killed than not exercising it.
… than exercising it!!!
I found your wonderful blog about 10 days ago and kept reading backwards – there are many, truly excellent essays on here. I have re-read Sovereign or satellite which is the gold standard! I strongly agree that it is the proper time for Israel to act on offense and what you proposed, covers all the bases. I’ve learned a lot from reading here. I did not even know that the US-operated X-band radar station on Mt. Keren even existed – so thanks for that. This memo to Bibi has had me smiling for hours now.
