Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki said Monday that an international peace conference is the only way to bring about a peace agreement between Israelis and Palestinians.

Malki, the top Palestinian diplomat, was reiterating Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ call for an international conference early next year to launch a  “genuine peace process” during his virtual address to the U.N. Security Council in September. “Anything else is volatile, and it is futile,” he said.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Kelly Craft said the Trump administration has “no objection” to meeting international partners but voiced doubts that it would be successful.

“We have no objection to meeting with international partners to discuss the issue,” Craft asserted. “But I have to ask: How is this different than every other meeting convened on this issue over the past 60 years?”

Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Gilad Erdan was not as agreeable as Craft, saying that Israel is opposed to a conference as Abbas has “rejected every peace offer made by the State of Israel,” and more recently has rallied against Israel’s normalization deals with the UAE, Bahrain and Sudan.

  1. I suggest that the tables should be turned. Israel should pledge to eliminate the entire Palestinian population, to be accomplished by any means Israel chooses. The options include military, snipers, poisoning the water, infiltrating their neighborhoods with wild animals, and any other creative means that can be contrived. In exchange for withholding any of these campaigns, the Palis should enslave themselves to Israel, send them all of their produce, and anything else Israel’s heart desires.

    Sound silly? OK. Well that’s a fraction of what the Palis are demanding of Israel. Palestine does not exist. There is a tribe of unwanted Arabs who adopted the label Palestinians, who are desirous of whatever Israel has. These uncivilized animals want our land, our blood, and anything we own and earned. And they are willing to commit any atrocity to achieve that. They learned a trick that works on any liberal mind – claim victimhood. And do so in the face of obvious fact that they are perpetrators of any unspeakable form of violence. Oh, that’s dishonest. Correct. But Islam considers dishonesty a virtue, not immoral. It requires the evil mind of a Democrat – Liberal to buy into the utter folly and distorted thinking to even be willing to support these chayos.

    If I see animals in the street, I haven’t a care in the world. But if they bother or threaten me, I reserve the right to act as I see fit to preserve my safety. Shall I sit at a table with chayos who have never abandoned their death wish for me? Should I expect these illiterate animals to engage in discussions about peace? Should I sit with terrorists and speak about concessions? NO. They should not be given the dignity that might fit for a human to be at a table for discussion. Extinction would be the best recommendation for them. In exchange for abandoning that goal, they should stay home, and behave civilized.
