If there is one thing which has made a difference in the rounds of anti-Semitism it is simply this – the Jews now have the IDF (and Torah - depending on your point of view.) This is what stands between now and the next round of purging the world of Jews.
In other news, the US State Department has come out with a report which states…
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's demand that the Palestinians recognize Israel as the state of the Jewish people as a condition for renewing peace talks is unacceptable to the United States, the State Department said during special envoy George Mitchell's visits over the weekend to Ramallah and Cairo. The State Department released statements saying that the United States would continue to promote a two-state solution. (Ha’aretz)
It might just be me, but I really don’t see where the US State Department has a say in setting the conditions or pre-conditions for either the Israelis or Palestinians side, and that very notion, the US has the right to determine what each side will negotiate would more than likely torpedo any sucessful conclusion of negotiations between either party...unless of course, the US believes it can create a mythical ‘peace process’ which will only exist on paper in the US. And good luck with that attitude.
