Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat appears to be under the influence of some hallucinatory substance. Judging by one of his recent utterances.
"If you could not convince the Israelis to stop settlement activity, will anybody in the Arab and Islamic world believe you can make Israel return to the '67 borders or withdraw from settlements?"
This pursuant the revived plan to build nearly five hundred more homes in Pisgat Zeev, a neighborhood of Jerusalem. Israel has stressed that it is willing to consider curbs on settlement activity in the disputed areas of the West Bank, but has stressed that that does NOT include any part of Jerusalem.
SAEB, LET ME SPEAK TO YOU AS A FRIEND
Now, then, ... Saeb habibi, ya achi (may I call you that?), sweetheart - what makes you think that anybody believes that Israel will return to the 1967 borders?
You lot only had part of Jerusalem for 18 years - and you made a pigsty out of it. Remember what you did to the Western Wall? Remember that you made a public pissoir out of it? Do you remember that Jordan ETHNICALLY CLEANSED the eastern part of Jerusalem, and the Etzion bloc?
And heck, Saebie-poo, your dear friends the Syrians ain't ever gonna see the Golan (هضبة الجولان Al Hadhbat-ul Jawlan) again either. Guess they shouldn't have used it to lob explosives at Al Yahood (اليهود) for so many years, huh?'
['Gush Etzion (Hebrew: גּוּשׁ עֶצְיוֹן, lit. Etzion Bloc) refers to a group of Jewish villages established from the 1920s south of Jerusalem on the northern part of Mount Hebron in the southern West Bank, and destroyed during the 1948 Arab-Israeli War: Kfar Etzion, Massu'ot, Ein Tzurim and Revadim.'
Please note especially the part where it mentions that the Arab Legion, commanded by an Englishman, war criminal John Bagot Glubb (Glubb Pasha), massacred everyone in Kfar Etzion, subsequently destroying everything and uprooting thousands of trees. In 1956, John Bagot Glubb was appointed Knight Commander of the Order of Bath in 1956 for his sterling services, including the ethnic cleansing of Jews from the West Bank of the Jordan river by his British-trained Jordanian forces.]
Saeb, sweetie, dear man, if YOU think that Jerusalem will ever belong to the Arabs again, you're out of your mind. Same goes for the Golan. And double for the Etzion block.
There are also a few other spots on the map of mandate Palestine that y'all might want to give up on. In the fullness of time. When common sense returns.
But in the meantime, do please give up on the illicit substances. It ain't helping your cause to be so stoned. Really. I'm a teenager, I know these things.
