Speaking of another round of fruitless discussions, Ynet News is reporting Palestinian claims that the new revised peace plan includes East Jerusalem.
US President Barack Obama's new peace plan for the Middle East continues to unravel, ahead of it official presentation in Cairo, on June 4. Official Palestinian Authority sources told Ynet Wednesday that following Jordan's King Abdullah's visit to Washington, as well as other visits to the US capital, they were given the impression that any new American peace plan would call for establishing a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.
And never fret over the fate of ancient Jewish Quarter of East Jerusalem as Obama apparently has a plan for that too.
The revised plan is also said to call for east Jerusalem to be made the new state's capital – with the Palestinian Authority's flag waving over it official institutions and the UN banner waving over the Old City and places sacred to Judaism, Islam and Christianity.
Yeah, like really, the UN will protect Jews and sites sacred to Judaism. Speaking of the UN and Israel, apparently the UN probe of alleged war crimes will go ahead without Israeli cooperation. Why the UN bothers wasting time ‘investigating’ when we all know how the report will end – in the condemnation of Israel just like a million and one other UN reports.
Palestinian farmers claim to have been attacked by Jewish settlers, meanwhile Israeli vehicles outside of Nablus and Hebron were stoned yesterday.
But the good news is that Russia has decided to halt sales of fighter jets to the Syrians.
