Sayonara Saeb

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak wasn't the only one to resign this weekend. So did 'Palestinian' chief negotiator bottle washer Saeb Erekat (Hat Tip: Ya Libnan).
Saeb Erakat has submitted his resignation as the chief Palestinian negotiator, according to Mohammed Shtayeh, Palestinian negotiator and a Fatah Central Committee member.

Erakat had previously said that he would resign his post if an investigation into the leak of Palestinian negotiating documents aired by the Al-Jazeera television network proved that the source of papers came from his office.

The so-called Palestine Papers suggested that Palestinian negotiators offered to give up large swaths of East Jerusalem to Israel during talks dating back to 2008 and that they had been willing to offer much larger concessions in private than they were publicly acknowledging.
Saeb apparently figured out what former peace processor Aaron David Miller figured out a few months ago: Peace is not coming.

There won't be peace negotiations with the Palestinians in our lifetime. Extremism is resurgent in the Middle East.

Now is not the time for Israel to agree to itself encircled by a Hamastan on all sides.

What could go wrong indeed
