Both the chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat and Israeli defense minister slam the new law that safeguards Jewish land.
That the Chief Palestinian negotiator Erekat oppose the new Knesset Bill might not be so surprising. But in regards to the political majority opinion in Israel, Erekat share the same platform as Israeli Defense Minister.
“The end of the occupation cannot depend on any referendum. ”The vote is in disregard of international law,” chief Palestinian negotiators Saeb Erekat said Tuesday.
Defense Minister Ehud Barak slammed the newly approved bill as well, saying that “it could be used by Israel’s critics against us, claiming the State is binding itself.” The Labor chairman did not participate in Monday’s Knesset vote.
“The reality outside, and inside, is not simple. There is no choice but to separate from the Palestinians. Two states for two people is not a formula or a slogan. It’s not like we are doing the Palestinians a favor.”
Knesset Member Yariv Levin (Likud), who led the referendum bill, responded to Barak’s remarks by saying that “it seems Minister Barak is not just politically blind but also forgetful, as he himself voted in favor of the law at the beginning of the (Knesset’s) term”.
The union between Islam and the left side of politics has during the last years become obvious in Europe.
This alliance is at best colorful, since the political left has hardly anything in common with Islam, but hate for the Jewish people.
The latest Jerusalem and Golan bill exposes that there also within the Israeli society are people who would not mind, giving up more land in a bid to get peace with Islam.
On of them is the highly decorated former Israeli General, Ehud Barak. As a secular Jew he do not see the spiritual implications of making a peace deal with the devil. But it is still regrettable, that Israel have chosen a defense minister who still do not understand what kind of spiritual forces Israel is up against.
