Shaath: We'll never accept two states for two peoples

I mentioned this video in an earlier post. Here's the interview with 'moderate' 'Palestinian' Nabil Shaath.

Let's go to the videotape (Hat Tip: Stefan W).

There we go--ah, their Judenrein reichlet for one people (and one people only), take it to the bank. Israel, well, that's one state for two people short run, and not really two peoples, since insisting international law and Israeli domestic law accommodate Israeli Arabs as Palestinians, as a second national constituent who are an extension of the one Palestinian state for one Palestinian people next door--not to mention right of return--essentially annuls, cancels, invalidates, erases the Zionist state "narrative" ab initio.

Look, it's obvious that Obama's outreach and appeasement have garned for him Arab contempt. And Shaath's suit-wearing contempt to start with (nice tailor--that ain't off the rack). And if Obama doubles down on stupid and fails to veto a UNSC resolution recognizing however-so-many states for the phantasm primeval of Palestine, may Israel's leaders at least learn something from his--and their own-past failures.

Though as bereft Barak joins Barack for Lord knows what reason trying to breathe life into the dead diplomatic parrot that is Oslo, that may not be on the cards either in Israel's elite Euroland.

Sure, it would be inconvenient to park Merkeva tanks in downtown Ramallah and reassess this whole Palestinian identity thing. Maybe highly impractical. But Palestinian statehood is a jack-in-the-box highly dangerous to open.
