Israel seeks to postpone publication of Quartet report

Post by sassy on Thu Jun 23, 2016 8:55 am

The diplomatic report, intended to go public in the coming days, will place the blame for the moribund peace process on Israel. It is expected to be endorsed by the UN Security Council.

Israel has launched diplomatic efforts aimed at halting the publication of a report by the Quartet (an international diplomatic body comprised of the United Nations, the European Union, the United States, and Russia. Its purpose is to oversee the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and attempt to end the conflict), which is expected to blame Israel for the current impasse in the peace process with the Palestinians. 
 

The report is set to be published on Thursday or Friday, but diplomats in Israel estimate that it will only be published after Prime Minister Netanyahu meets with US Secretary of State John Kerry. The two are set to meet in Rome early next week.

 

Israeli officials say that the report is not expected to contain any major surprises but is likely to place full blame at Israel's door step for the stalled peace process. The report will also reportedly condemn Israel's construction in the settlements, settler violence, home demolitions, and other steps seen as jeopardizing the prospects of a two-state solution.

Palestinians are expected to be censured for the effect their actions have had in increasing incitement and violence.

 

Reports received by Israel say that back channel attempts have been made to make the report part of the UN Security Council's agenda. The government in Jerusalem is worried that the report may pave a path toward promoting the French peace initiative (which Israel opposes), and perhaps even its endorsement by the UN.

 

Senior Israeli ministers say that the US is playing a double game, and that it enjoys watching Israel squirm, intending on intervening at a more convenient time – specifically, after the November presidential elections are over.

 

The Quartet's report was written following a meeting of its foreign affairs representatives in Munich in early 2016 with the goal of analyzing the reasons for the diplomatic stagnation between Israel and the Palestinians. It aso set out to form a plan for renewing negotiations.

 

PM Netanyahu spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin, urging him to intervene and "soften" the report, as well as to postpone its publication. Netanyahu will also meet European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon (who will be arriving in Israel for a goodbye visit, as he is expected to leave office at the end of 2016) next week and discuss the Quartet's report with them.

Isn't that about the third time you have posted that.

Never mind the IDF have just admitted to shooting a bunch of Palestinian teenagers in a car 'by mistake', killing a 15 yrs old and badly injuring 4 others.

As for Karsch, I think Benny Morris destroyed him a long time ago

Howard Sachar sees Karsh as the "preeminent scholar-spokesman of the Revisionist (politically-rightist) Movement in Zionism."[6]
Author David Rodman opined that "Karsh stitches together a seemingly irrefutable case for the validity of the traditionalist narrative, possibly bringing to an end once and for all the New Historian phenomenon as a sustainable historiographical project."[7]
New Historians leader Benny Morris called Karsh's Fabricating Israeli History "a mélange of distortions, half-truths, and plain lies that vividly demonstrates his profound ignorance of both the source material (...) and the history of the Zionist-Arab conflict," titling his article "Undeserving of a Reply".[8] Morris adds that Karsh belabors minor points while ignoring the main pieces of evidence.[9]
Political scientist Ian Lustick commented that Karsh's writing in Fabricating Israeli History was malevolent, and his analysis erratic and sloppy.[10][11]
Yezid Sayigh, professor of Middle East studies, wrote that "[Karsh] is simply not what he makes himself out to be, a trained historian (nor political/social scientist)."[12] Karsh accused Sayigh of a "misleading misrepresentation of my scholarly background" and retorted that Sayigh's remarks were "not a scholarly debate on facts and theses but a character assassination couched in high pseudo-academic rhetoric".[12]

Considering I have studied history and you have zero knowledge and you are again diverting from the facts
I will simply just laugh at your pitiful reply
As always you simply havbe no answer and even your boy wonder Irn, just tries to character assassinate me like you do.
Facts are facts, if the Palastinianjs had accepted the partition plan, there would be peace today, they refuse to except israel and you pander to this by constantly trying to dehumnize israel.

Here you will love this article, right up your street.

Water, water everywhere but not a drop of truth by B'Tselem




Yesterday, B'Tselem tweeted:

Twitter wrote:B'Tselem בצלם بتسيلم @btselem
While Palestinians suffer from severe water shortage, settlement swimming pools are full http://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.726132 … pic.twitter.com/W8KRq9hylW.

The link goes to a Haaretz article by Amira Hass where Palestinians complain that settlements get all the water and none go to their communities in Judea and Samaria.

The Haaretz article didn't mention swimming pools once.

One person pointed out to  B'Tselem public relations director Roy Yellin that Palestinian swimming pools happen to be full:





Twitter wrote:.@btselem It seems that Waterland in Jericho is opened for business. 30 Shekels for a full day pass. @elderofziyon pic.twitter.com/3oXpmWqaw4

Indeed it is open, along with numerous other Palestinian water parks and swimming pools.

Yellin simply could not understand how this is relevant right after he retweeted about settlement swimming pools:

What possible point could there to point out that Palestinian swimming pools are full be right after he complains that Jews have swimming pools? It is a real mystery, I tell ya.

It just so happens that Yisrael Medad told me yesterday that Israel's water carrier Mekorot turned off the water altogether in his community at Shiloh.

That's right, Jewish settlements with no water in the hot summer months.

B'Tselem is not interested in truth. But this is how it raises all that European funds so it can give salaries to people like Yellin.

Truth becomes a burden when you need to pay for your own swimming pool.

http://elderofziyon.blogspot.com/2016/06/water-water-everywhere-but-not-drop-of.html


Yet again missing the point.

Palestinians have one or two PUBLIC swimming pools, they are not allowed the water for private ones


The settlements have HUNDREDS of PRIVATE swimming pools and are allowed all the water they want.

Meantime:

Israel Plans to Destroy Only Water Source of Shepherds in West Bank Village


Move comes despite Israeli authorities telling international agencies that there would be no demolitions during the month of Ramadan.


Israel intends to destroy a water-holding tank that serves 20 families of Palestinian shepherds and their flocks in the northern Jordan Valley.

This, despite the fact that Israel’s coordinator of government activities in the territories (to which the Civil Administration is subordinate) promised representatives of international agencies that there would be no demolitions during the month of Ramadan, except for structures built during this time, Haaretz has learned.

The simple structure collects water coming out of a natural spring. A rubber hose attached to it runs for a few dozen meters to a plastic trough. The Civil Administration claims the structure was built illegally.

The shepherds, who live in a community called Umm al-Jimal, own 700 sheep and goats, as well as 300 cows and some horses. Last year, a flood destroyed another holding tank that served the families, also blocking the spring’s exit. The families are concerned that destroying the current holding tank will once more block the spring, which is their only close water source.

A final injunction to stop work and demolish the holding tank was given in April 2012, but was never implemented. Last Tuesday, an inspector called Avi posted a notice concerning filing reservations regarding the demolition injunction “for a 10-meter-square pool of water.”

Residents were given three days to present their reservations at the Civil Administration. At press time, they didn’t know if an attorney for the Palestinian Authority had managed to file on time, or whether Civil Administration officials will arrive in coming days to demolish the tank.

Haaretz was unable to contact the attorney on Saturday and couldn’t contact the Civil Administration because of Shabbat.
