The unofficial draft peace agreement cobbled
together by Palestinians and Israeli left-wing
opposition members is "delusional," former prime
minister Ehud Barak said Monday...
"This is a fictive and slightly peculiar
agreement... that clearly harms the interests
of the State of Israel," said Barak.
Ehud Barak reminding me why, with all his numerous shortcomings, he's still the only sane man on the Israeli Left. This "agreement" (scare quotes very necessary) is worse than peculiar, its treasonous, and I do not use that word lightly. Its an attempt to wrest power away from a democratically elected government and the people of Israel who overwhelmingly voted for it. Words cannot express how utterly immoral the actions of these people are. They are attempting nothing less than a coup d'etat against the government of Israel. Only the fact that I know most of the people involved acted out of very misguided good intentions keeps me from using even stronger language. I despise Jewish and Israeli infighting but I'm afraid that this time its warranted. How dare Beilin and his crew usurp the legitimate powers of the Israeli government? How did they come by their extraordinary arrogance? How do they not grasp that this is hugely counterproductive and damaging to Israeli foreign policy? How can they treat the will of their fellow citizens so contemptuously? I hope Barak runs for the Labor leadership again and wins, he's the only hope the Israeli Left has after this ridiculous fiasco.
