The real chickensh*t

The real chickensh*t is not Binyamin Netanyahu according to Arab scholar Bassam Tawil. It's the Arab leaders and their enablers in the West (Hat Tip: Bad Blue).
Judging by their actions, most Arab leaders have no desire to see the Palestinian issue resolved. They seem to prefer preserving the status quo. They blame Israel for refusing to make concessions to the Palestinians and hope that this refusal will weaken Israel, even though Israel is their strategic defense against Iran.
Most Arab leaders do not want to create what is bound soon to become yet another terrorist Islamist state, dedicated to the Muslim Brotherhood's ideology and to toppling their regimes.
The Arab leaders already have to contend with ISIS, Al-Qaeda and the Al-Nusra Front in Syria, Iraq, Libya and Yemen, which are enough for them, to say nothing of Africa from Nigeria to Somalia and everything in between.
But if Israel can be blamed for another of world's ills, with Kerry's blessing, why waste the opportunity?
In response to the colossal threat of radical Islam, the whimpering voice of the West can barely be heard. The U.S. administration targeted Israel for condemnation. A "senior official," most likely the current White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, called Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a "chickenshit," for being afraid to make peace with the Palestinians.
According to the "Arab street," including the Palestinian street, it is the Americans and Europeans who are cowards, afraid to take significant steps against Iran, and terrified of the Islamic ghettoes in their cities, which have been exporting terrorists to fight for the Islamic State, and providing housing to the seasoned fighters who return.
The Sunni states under Shi'ite threat cannot even reach an agreement among themselves about what is to be done; and the Palestinians, in their folly, have chosen the worst possible moment to ignite violence in Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa mosque. The Palestinians seem not to understand that the Arab regimes that might support them are currently busy fighting for their own survival, and have no desire to fall prey to Palestinian provocations about what they realize all too well are fictional threats to Jerusalem.
Given the current situation, Turkey's regional political actions are dangerous, underhanded and hypocritical. To achieve their ends, Turkey's leaders seem to have no qualms about sacrificing their minorities, such as Christians and the Kurds (most of whom are Sunni). Turkey's leaders were the first to cry "humanitarian crisis" when Israel imposed a closure on the Gaza Strip to prevent Iran from sending Hamas arms. Turkey sent the Mavi Marmara flotilla to protect the Gazans, who were never in any danger in the first place. Turkey's leaders then weakened Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who, at least at that time, showed himself willing to reach a peace agreement with the Israelis. But when Syria's Kurds are being killed in Kobani on a daily basis, the Turks are silent, perhaps secretly comfortable seeing a group that wants a state of its own apart from Turkey, being attacked.
Thus, when John Kerry claimed that it was the unresolved Palestinian issue that caused a ripple effect that created ISIS, he simply inspired the Palestinians to use Al-Aqsa mosque as a religious trigger for future bloodshed. The idea is not new; it was used in 1929 by the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and led to anti-Jewish riots and the massacre of the Jews in Hebron. It was used again by PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat in 2000, to incite the Palestinians to the second intifada, which killed untold numbers of Jews and Arabs. Today, Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas's Khaled Mashaal are doing the same thing to incite a jihad that this time will truly be religious and not based on real estate.
The more Kerry accuses Israel of having had a hand in creating ISIS, the more the Palestinians will use Al-Aqsa mosque to stir the fire burning under the bubbling cauldron of the Middle East.
Somehow, John Kerry has managed to link to Israel the Shi'ite-Sunni civil wars, radical Islam's Muslim Brotherhood-inspired global plot and the creation of ISIS. Then he linked the failure of the Palestinian issue to have been resolved to Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The unpopular and inconvenient truth is: if there is to be peace, Hamas has to be disarmed, the Palestinian Authority and the Gaza Strip have to be demilitarized, Mahmoud Abbas has to recognize the State of Israel as the homeland of the Jews, and Netanyahu has to recognize the Palestinians state. Israel will then compensate the Palestinians with land in return for the land on which the three large blocks of settlements stand, as has already been agreed.
It is not Israel but the Palestinians who are trying to avoid negotiating a final agreement. They see themselves, with the backing of the UN and Secretary Kerry -- and in a final breakdown of any trust in future international agreements -- as able to achieve their desired result without having to make any concessions.
Read it all. Ironically, JPost reports today that the European Union has appointed a new foreign policy chief. Guess what her goal is....
The EU’s new foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini told the European media on Monday that she would like to see a Palestinian state by the time her five-year term is up.

“The important thing for me,” Mogherini said, “is not whether other states, European or not, recognize Palestine. What would make me happy, is if a Palestinian state existed at the end of my term.”

She issued her statement to the French daily newspaper Le Monde in advance of her visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories on Friday and Saturday.
One thing that's sure to make the 'Palestinians' want to 'negotiate' is more European chickensh*t....

Federica Mogherini is an Israel-hating pro-Arab, "former" COMMUNIST, always pro-PLO, and see her picture here with Arafat
