It's (long past) time to admit it: We don't have a peace partner

Evelyn Gordon says what the State of Israel ought to be saying every single day: We don't have a peace partner.
How can you blame fringe groups like Jewish Voice for Peace for doing exactly what Israel’s so-called “peace partner”–a man feted in capitals the world over, including Washington–does every single day?
The Palestinian Authority and its president, Mahmoud Abbas, are world leaders in sponsoring anti-Israel activity and promoting boycott, divestment, and sanctions campaigns. Just this week, for instance, Abbas toured European capitals to urge the EU to step up sanctions against Israel, while the PA took the bizarre step of asking the French government to strip French nationals living in Israeli settlements of their citizenship. A few weeks ago, Palestinian legislators asked the Inter-Parliamentary Union to approve a motion urging national parliaments to boycott Israel. Last month, the PA sent letters to 50 countries urging them to impose commercial boycotts on Israel. And all this anti-Israel activity is taking place while Israeli-Palestinian talks are ostensibly at their height, with negotiators meeting several times a week.
Read the whole thing.

One person who should be forced to copy Gordon's words 500 or more times is Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who had this to say on Sunday morning.
"We have to honor government decisions even if it is difficult and unpleasant, we can't constantly change our stance," Netanyahu told the ministers.
Netanyahu was referring to Israel's promise to release 104 terrorist murderers while the 'negotiations' with the 'Palestinians' go on. Hey Netanyahu, what were you promised in exchange for that promise? Are the 'Palestinians' keeping their promise to stop terrorism? Clearly not. And that's why you shouldn't keep yours.
