Bluff effective. Your move.

Reader comment on item: Jews Living in Palestine?

Submitted by Duane Gainsburg (United States), Feb 6, 2014 at 11:17

Could it be that the Prime Minister's idea of Jews living in "Palestine" was a bluff designed to elicit Abbas' predictable reaction of "no Jews, not even one," thus exposing to the world his blind intransigence . Perhaps akin to Barak offering 90+ percent of the West Bank while knowing that Arafat would refuse. After the expected Knesset and media fireworks subside, what's left is clear: "We have no Partner in Peace," Kerry/Obama notwithstanding. Until the Palestinian leadership starts dealing with reality, neither will we have "Peace in Our Time."

Lesson # 2 - don't play poker with Bibi.
