Anan Calls For Israel To Withdraw From West Bank
JHC on a popsicle stick! Where the **** is Bolton? Why isn't he stomping all over K Anan for this latest outrageous statement that Israel must withdraw from the West Bank of the Jordan. Anan - "What happens in the West Bank is very much on our mind," "For us, the quartet (US, UN, Russia and the EU), it is Gaza first and then the next stage will be the West Bank. Not Gaza first and Gaza last," he said. The reason this is bollocks is that the first phase of the plan has not been realized. There are two major pieces missing: End to Palestinian violence; Palestinian political reform. Kicking Israel out of Gaza was easy. Israel has done its bit.
Then, and get this, the quartet thanked the Palestinian Authority for "responsible behavior" in containing violence during the withdrawal. And the final outrage of the day besides the picture to the left, the road map to peace calls for a freeze on Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria, and the dismantlement of more than 100 unauthorized settlement outposts there. European diplomats and others are eager to push Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to move quickly in the "West Bank" At least W did not echo any of this, yet and I hope to Christ he doesn't!
What's wrong with the picture above?
Do you remember Resolution 1441? Try reading it! Do you remember the US Congress declaring war on Saddam? Read the damn articles of war they all signed on to. Get your facts correct, please.
Thanks. Have a great day.
