    Palestinians accuse Israel of destroying prospects for two-state solution with new settlements - The Washington Post

    UNITED NATIONS — The Palestinians accused Israel on Monday of systematically destroying prospects for a two-state solution to their decades-long conflict with its continuing campaign of settlement building.

    Palestinian U.N. observer Riyad Mansour sent a protest letter to the U.N. secretary-general, Security Council and General Assembly two days before the Quartet of Mideast mediators — the U.S., U.N., European Union and Russia — meets in Washington to discuss the long-stalled peace process.

    Mansour said Israel’s “illegal and destructive plans” to build new settlements underscore “the dubious nature” of its claims of readiness to negotiate a peace deal.

    Israeli-Palestinian talks remain frozen over Palestinian demands that Israel stop building on lands they claim, and agree to negotiate borders based on lines Israel held before capturing the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem in 1967.

    Israel rejects those conditions and has defied international pressure to freeze settlement construction. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu insists that negotiations resume without what he has portrayed as preconditions.

    “The main obstacle to peace is not settlements,” Karean Peretz, spokeswoman for Israel’s U.N. Mission, said Monday. “It is the so-called ‘claim of return’ and the Palestinians leadership’s refusal to return to the negotiating table. We need direct negotiations, not more provocations at the U.N.”

    The Palestinians have long demanded that Palestinian refugees and their descendants, who now number in the millions, be allowed to return to Israel. The Israeli government insists that the country must be recognized as the Jewish homeland, which would require the Palestinians to accept that most refugees will be denied the “right of return” to what is now Israel.

    The Quartet has called for a resumption of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations with the goal of a peace agreement by the end of 2012. But in late February, U.N. political chief B. Lynn Pascoe told the Security Council that exploratory low-level talks in Amman, Jordan between the Israelis and Palestinians had stalled and prospects for resuming direct negotiations “remain dim.”

    Nonetheless, the Quartet on March 12 again urged the Israelis and Palestinians to return to negotiations and reach an agreement no later than the end of the year.

    The Quartet’s top representatives — U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov — are scheduled to discuss the latest Mideast situation at Blair House in Washington on Wednesday morning on the sidelines of a meeting of foreign ministers of the eight major industrialized nations.

    In his letter, Mansour said Israel “continues its systematic destruction of the two-state solution with its continuing illegal settlement campaign” which he said is “being deliberately waged in an attempt to seize more Palestinian land and entrench its control over the Palestinian territory.”

    Mansour appealed to the international community and especially to the Security Council “to condemn Israel’s illegal settlement activities” and take urgent measures to pressure Israel to immediately halt new construction.

    we should take this lesson from Israel for our kashmir issue.

    we should get some pundits' settlement in kashmir ( we should have done long time back).

    it a pity now and our strategic blunder that we are now unable to hoist our "tri colour" there.

    I'm sorry why are you on this forum if you are an Israeli? This forum is for Indians, and those related to India.

    Don't come on any Indian forum and spew your pro-Zionist nonsense, and wonder why someone questions why you are here at all.

    As far as I'm concerned you've already led me to believe your just here to spread deliberate confusion and hate amongst people.

    I have every right to tell you to piss off. You aren't Indian, you have no connection to India, and you are spewing propaganda on a thread that was meant to stay completely objective amongst Indians only.

    I don't give a flying ---- about what you think about arabs or Muslims because guess what... YOU AREN'T INDIAN!

    I honestly could care less.... we have a lot of guests in our homeland, that doesn't make them Indian either.

    If you're going to post on an Indian forum do so in a respectful manner, which means don't hijack someone's thread by saying completely infuriating nonsense.

    Palestinians DO NOT even recognise the RIGHT of Israel to EXIST as a Sovereign country

    Typical Islamic Mentality First conquer somebody's Land and then it becomes Islamic Land

    Just as it happened in Kashmir

    Our fault is that we have dickless, spineless 'old' people at the top. We do not have young energetic blood who make decisions. Ours is not a meritocracy and as long as reservation etc etc remain we will never progress.
    Next.
    The logic used by Israelis in laying claim to the land is that 'Canaan' was promised by yahowah for the israelis according to the torah. And they derive legality from the fact that when the British just decided to carve out a nation out of Palestinian lands for Israelis and populated it with several millions of israelis from who lived in various parts of the world. Note that before this yahodas (Jews), Muslims and Nasranis (Christians) lived in relative peace in these lands.
    Unfortunately for Palestinians the 'powers' of the world were behind Israel. And Israel is very aggressive in it's tactics, which is also the reason for it's successes. So the future of Palestinian people is really effed up and thanks to the British a problem has been created where non existed.

    I would recommend everyone to see the following documentary. It's an excellent award winning documentary
    OCCUPATION 101



    It's 1.5 hrs long. Save it from Youtube and watch when you have the time

    Then your article is misplaced too. Is Palestine in India?

    And btw, it is an Indian forum that encourages international participation.

    And PL is a defense professional, please show some respect.(Its a defense forum afterall)
