The ABC reports on more double-talk from the Middle East: Netanyahu sets conditions for Palestinian state

“If we receive this guarantee regarding demilitarisation, and if the Palestinians recognise Israel as the state of the Jewish people, then we will be ready in a future peace agreement to reach a solution where a demilitarised Palestinian state exists alongside the Jewish state,” Mr Netanyahu said.

But he has failed to make any concessions on the US President’s demands to freeze all expansion of Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank.

Yes, once again, before talks can take place the Palestinians must give up everything, and bow to the wishes of the newest theocracy in the Middle East. The new Israeli government wants the Palestinians to agree to apartheid for themselves and all of the non-Jewish citizens of Israel, while they promise nothing but a possible, future series of talks that may lead to something… or not.

More Israeli agitprop for the consumption of their US supporters, who will now claim that Israel has made a serious move towards peace. When Israel starts stating what it will do for peace, it might be worth listening, but real peace would be end of the Likud and they know it.
