What a 'Palestinian negotiator's Facebook page says about the chances for peace

The picture above is the Facebook page of Dr. Mohammed Shtayyeh, one of the two 'negotiators' representing 'Moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen. My Arabic is non-existent but Raheem Kassam explains why the page above should worry those who want peace.
While Dr. Shtayyeh has been paying lip service to Kerry’s peace talks initiative publicly, his Facebook background image reveals his aspirations for a Palestinian state that incorporates the entirety of Israel, the West Bank and Gaza. The word ‘Filastin’ (Palestine) can be seen emblazoned across the entirety of Israel, the West Bank and Gaza, above.
Such backhanded tactics are well known within Palestinian circles, and the recognition of the State of Israel is a rarity in the region. It is also a well known tactic within anti-Israel pressure groups around the world including the Palestine Solidarity Campaign which operates in Britain. Its logo displays a ‘one-state solution’, leaving the region devoid of a Jewish State, instead replacing it with yet another Muslim-majority country: ‘Palestine’.
'Two-state solution'? Where is the Jewish state going to be? Uganda?
