Quote of the Day (qotd)

A double qotd today, both regarding the Palestinian "threat" of unilaterally declaring statehood.

The Palestinians should respond positively to the peace offer that the government under my leadership offered to them. They will not receive an offer better than that one - the balls is in their court.

--- Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert at the Saban Conference today

who knew that Olmert's offers were still on the table? Netyanyahu has said numerous times that nothing offered by Olmert's government would obligate his government...

The situation is much better than the way it is being described. The visit of the PM was very good. There is an attempt to create an atmosphere of despondency, in order to force a political process. Just like what happened in 2005 with the disengagement - and we see where that got us. The Palestinians do not need to threaten us with unilateral steps. We can also take unilateral steps, such as annexing Judea and Samaria. The Prime Minister does not negate negotiations, but he has principles.

--- Minister Yisrael Katz (Likud)

  1. Olmert seems pretty shady, I wouldn't take anything he says for granted. Like you said, why would his govt actions have any bearing on Bibi's?
