Liberals were outraged when Mitt Romney said that the Palestinians aren’t interested in peace. Thanks to this article, we now know that Mitt had it right:

Palestinian Authority head, Mahmoud Abbas, proposed cancelling the Oslo Accords with Israel at a weekend meeting of the PA leadership, a senior member of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) told AFP on Tuesday.

PLO Executive Committee member Wassel Abu Yusef said Abbas raised the idea of “cancelling the Oslo agreement as well as the associated economic and security arrangements,” at the meeting on Saturday and Sunday.

Abu Yusef said that “members of the Palestinian leadership had mixed opinions on the issue, and it was decided to postpone any decision until their next meeting,” due to be held after Abbas’s return from the UN General Assembly later this month. “It was the first time the Palestinian leadership put the issue of the Oslo agreement on the table since it was signed in 1993,” Abu Yusef added.

Cancelling the Oslo Accords means Hamas/Fatah/the PA is free to resume their terrorist attacks. The Accords were political cover for their terrorist attacks. Nobody really thought that they’d lost their love of pushing the Jewish state into the Mediterranean.

Liberals touted the agreements as proof of the PLO’s seriousness about peace. We have an agreement, they said at the time.

Conservatives laughed at the notion that that leopard had changed its spots.

The most telling thing about the media’s going ballistic over Mitt Romney’s statement is that they think it’s wrong to state what’s painfully obvious. If the media thinks it’s wrong to state what’s painfully obvious, what other principles do they are important?

I know this administration won’t agree with this but it’s time to call terrorists terrorists. Mahmoud Abbas is the leader of a government of terrorists.

Rather than sticking the nation’s head in the sand and pretending like the Middle East isn’t one lit match away from erupting in violence, perhaps it’s time for the US to push aside this administration’s fantasies that Iran can be held in check by sanctions.

Perhaps, it’s time that the US government took a harder line stance with the Muslim Brotherhood.

President Obama’s belief that we should coddle state sponsors of terrorism while turning our backs on our greatest allies is repulsive.

    Outrage is over the 47% remark at the fundraiser hosted by the nude-party guy, Marc Leder.

    This diversionary attempt is not going to work. Veterans grateful fot the VA are not going to like that moocher wanting a handout characterization, nor people who receive Social Security payments, as Ayn Rand did.

    Concentrate on Senate and House and State races at this point.

    Not that vluture and voucher helps much there, but Willard’s mistepped several times too many to be taken seriously any longer, and Ryan is scary.

    Your New Hampshire guy in Oberstar’s seat may be sucked under the bus.

    Dream on, Eric. Getting things right, which is what Mitt’s been, will hurt President Obama.

    Frankly, I’d think you’d be disgusted with the thought of the corrupt media totally ignoring President Obama’s failed economic & foreign policies while hyping Mitt’s dramatically overblown mistakes.

    I guess you really don’t care about eliminating corruption as long as it helps incompetent Democrats. That’s disgusting, Eric. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    Also, AIPAC is weakened by the neocon war history in Iraq. Being a neocon infested thing, not entirely but to an undeniably great degree, means that AIPAC cannot as much as in the past deliver US Jewish votes; and add to that, Ryan is scary. Forced discourse on areas where vulture-voucher are weak, such as foreign policy, is not going to bode well for your folks in Main Street contests. Andy and his tout-guy Hegseth have the right idea, form a PAC and build gravitas for Hegseth’s aim of challenging Franken next cycle. To to that by trying to push a few state GOP folks over the hump. Of course, I hope they fail, but at least they are not chasing pipe dreams and instead grounding their effort in actual opportunity.

  • eric z says:

    Gary, you bandy the word “corruption” around far too loosely. Don’t get your way is not “corruption.” Corruption is the wealthy not paying a fair share to maintain the nation that allowed their prosperity. You refuse to face that simple fact. You are blowing smoke.

  • Gary Gross says:

    Corruption is when the media ignores important stories that the American people have a right to know about.

    As for the rich not paying their fair share, please put a numerical value on that so I know that it isn’t forever shifting. As for raising taxes, I don’t want anyone paying more taxes when the GAO’s reports show $100,000,000,000 a year being wasted on duplicative programs, when the HHS IG reports that $75,000,000,000 a year is getting paid to scam artists.

    If the Democrats eliminated that waste & still couldn’t balance the budget, then & only then would I support a tax increase on anyone.

    Eric:

    Just curious with all of the distractions you’re trying to throw out here why don’t you answer these two simple questions.

    One, do you think the PLO accept Isreal being allowed to exist. Romney has let his position be known. If you want to crtizie Romney, Gary, or me we’re entitled to it.

    Two, what kind of foreign policy do you want? The one where Obama waves the white flag and let Americans die even though common sense and warnings said precaution was needed or one where you get tough on enemies of American interests like the PLO?
