Israel should also say No to Palestine until they tear up their Charter for War

IMO, 99% of the peace process with the post 1948-Palestinians is a waste of time. By "post-1948," it means that before 1948, all the Jews in that area were considered Palestinians. Until they accept Israel's right to exist, every effort to appease or deal with them is a waste of time.

By waste of time, that also refers to the ongoing breach of promise made by Arafat in 1989, when he said to the world that the 1964 charter of the Palestine Liberation Organization, which challenges Israel's right to exist, is null and void: "As for the charter, I believe there's an expression in French c'est caduque (it's null and void)," said Arafat.

Arafat made the statement publicly to French President Francois Mitterrand, who pressed him to clear up contradictions between the charter and the PLO's decision six months ago to recognize Israel's right to exist. Yet that Palestinian National Charter, which is a clear declaration of war against Israel's existence, is still active.

Until they tear it up, no civilized country should deal with them. In none of the minor or major wars in history, has any such public declaration of ongoing war been published. It should be any civilized country's first priority. Especially Europe, since Europe's so-called support for Palestinian rights is a sham. Until they first demand that the Charter some European ghost-wrote for them is declared void and Arafat's acceptance of Israel be enacted as law, Europe's opinion should be discounted. And considering how little they said or did as over 100,000 Muslim Bosnians were slaughtered in their own neighborhood not that long ago, Europe's phony pity for Palestinian rights should also be treated as fake. And note how little or nothing they worry about the million Muslims kept in barb-wired reeducation camps in China.

And anyone who reads it, would realize that it could not back then have been written by any Arab, as it's clearly a European-style legalistic document, even implying that Arabs would "vote." Creating this European document for the post-1948 Palestinians was Europe's way of remote-controlling via proxy the continual subjugation of Jews after they escaped Europe, and making sure that region remains in turmoil.

It would appear that until some honestly intelligent Palestinian is willing to publicly carry out Arafat's promise to the world that he made in France, there is no Palestinian that can be dealt with or trusted.
