Israel is the only civilized country, that must deny its juridical system if it wants “peace talks”. A US demand to please the Arabs.
Tourism Minister Uzi Landau (Yisrael Beitenu) told Ynet that “the Israeli consent to release prisoners is a mistake. We must learn from past mistakes and not make any gestures before negotiations begin.”
According to Landau, “there is an Israeli interest to negotiate,” however he clarified: “The release of prisoners troubles me. When you enter negotiations, you need to know what the dialogue is about. We must learn from the Americans, who do not release prisoners and do not release murderers. If anyone expects us to announce we are leaving the government, he shouldn’t wait. We still don’t know what is behind these statements.”
Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said negotiating is an Israeli interest. “We have expressed our willingness to negotiate immediately, anywhere, and without preconditions. We insisted on entering negotiations without preconditions, which included Palestinian demands to declare the 1967 borders, freezing of construction and release of prisoners,” he said.
How would the American public react, if Obama released some convicted Russian gangsters from prison, before being granted “trade talks” with Russian officials in Moscow?
And in particular, if the convicted Russians were brutal murders, sentenced to decades in prison in the USA?
My best guess, is that the Americans would have demanded their president to be removed from office, impeached by the electorate at Capitol Hill.
But Obama has no problem with disgracing the legal system in Israel, the only civilized and just nation in the Middle East. That is blunt hypocrisy and double standards.
1 Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither –
whatever they do prospers.
Naftali Bennet said it so correctly: “I refuse to release murderers, in exchange for the right to sit in the same room as Abu Mazen, alias Mahmoud Abbas”.
Let hope and pray that Benjamin Netanyahu has the boldness to refuse the Obamait’s acceptance of injustice, as the very foundation for “peace talks”.
