U.S. Officials: Resolution Endangers “Prospects of a Durable Peace”
By Ted Belman
The only way it can do so is to make the Palestinians even less flexible. But since the Palestinians have never exhibited flexibility or a willingness to compromise, the resolution will simply reinforce their past behavior.
Can anyone explain how the resolution “endangers prospects for peace”. Has PM Netanyahu ever indicated that he will accept “67 lines with swaps” or the division of Jerusalem. Did anyone ever expect that Netanyahu would cave on these red lines. Mind you he did say recently the UN resolutions can’t get Israel to compromise on security. I hate when he says things like that instead of saying that no UN resolution will get Israel to cross those red lines.
So what prospects for peace were there before the resolution which have been endangered. The only prospect lay in getting Israel to cross her red lines. I don’t see how the Resolution will steel Israel’s refusal to cross the red lines.
