Mr. Barghouti revealed—probably inadvertently—the core of the conflict when he repeated the Arabs’ intransigent refusal to accept the existence of Israel as a Jewish state. In other words, the pre-condition for Palestinian “peace” negotiations is that Israel agrees to annihilate itself: no Jewish state of any size, with any boundaries. Period.
Regardless of the pieties Mr. Barghouti mouthed about “human rights” and “respect”, the truth is that the Palestinian project has nothing to do with the creation of a Palestinian state, which they were offered and have rejected on many occasions. Its goal, repeated this morning by a self-styled spokesman for peace and justice, is the elimination of the Jewish state.
