Israel’s new foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, announced VERY clearly that he refuses¬† any kind of “concessions” to Palestinians and said,”¬† Those who want peace should prepare for war and be strong.” And his new prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has always strongly opposed the idea of a sovereign Palestinian state. His most generous offer for the Palestinians is a promise of a better economic situation under the Israeli occupation and after a while he may think of giving them “self-governing”. Clearly this new radical government is a government of war and refuses to admit the legitimacy of any Palestinian state and NO ONE in the Western world is even threatening them of isolation unless they change their radical views like they have always demanded from the Palestinians.

On the contrary, shortly after this radical government took office in Israel, the U.S. State Department announced,” The United States is committed to working with the Israeli government to work for peace and stability in the region and will remain unalterably committed to Israel’s security.” What kind of hypocrisy is this? Why the double standards? Why are the Palestinians asked to admit the legitimacy of their enemies’ state when their enemies refuse to acknowledge any solution based on establishing a Palestinian state?
