Nothing like encouraging the enemy to start another mass terrorist uprising.
1,100 Israelis were killed in the Second Intifada from September 2000 to December 2005.
Victims of the December 1, 2001 Zion Square terrorist bombing. The only people who benefitted from this barbarism were the relatives of the two bombers who received President Saddam Hussein grants.
The Obama State Department says another intifada may be necessary to force Israel into peace negotiations.
Members of Kerry’s State Department team blast Prime Minister Netanyahu and warns Israel of another intifada if a peace plan is not reached with the Fatah-Hamas alliance.
The Times of Israel reported, via Doug Ross:
American officials directly involved in the failed Israeli-Palestinian peace process over the last nine months gave a leading Israeli columnist a withering assessment of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s handling of the negotiations, indicated that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has completely given up on the prospect of a negotiated solution, and warned Israel that the Palestinians will achieve statehood come what may — either via international organizations or through violence…
…One bitter American official told Barnea, “I guess we need another intifada to create the circumstances that would allow progress…”
A third intifada, the Americans made clear, “would be a tragedy. The Jewish people are supposed to be smart; it is true that they’re also considered a stubborn nation. You’re supposed to know how to read the map: In the 21st century, the world will not keep tolerating the Israeli occupation. The occupation threatens Israel’s status in the world and threatens Israel as a Jewish state.”
This comes a week after John Kerry suggested Israel could become an apartheid state.
