    'UN drafting ceasefire plan that would reinstate PA in Gaza'

    'UN drafting ceasefire plan that would reinstate PA in Gaza'
    Jan 10, 2009

    A day after the United Nations Security Council resolution calling for a ceasefire was dismissed by both Israel and the Hamas rulers of Gaza, a new plan was being hatched to reinstitute the Palestinian Authority on the Gaza-Egypt border, according to a report in a British paper.

    The Times reported on Saturday morning the UN diplomats were drawing up a plan to bring in international monitors to police the border crossing which has been a porous entryway for weapons and other smuggled goods until Israel's Operation Cast Lead was begun 15 days ago.

    According to the new plan, a triangle at the southern end of Gaza, including the Rafah crossing to Egypt and the Kerem Shalom crossing to Israel, would be policed by Turkish and French military monitors to stop arms smuggling into Gaza, while the Strip itself would return to the jurisdiction of the Palestinian Authority.

    I must say, the UN never ceases to amaze me.

    Let’s first hear Abbas unambiguously condemn the Aqsa Brigades and purge them from Fatah. Let’s hear Abbas loudly assert that all suicide bombings and other attacks intentionally targeting civilians are unacceptable. Let’s hear Abbas acknowledge that a peaceful settlement cannot realistically include a right of return.

    How hard can that be for a “moderate”?

    Any such proposal will go over like a lead balloon among those who hold Gazans prisoner. Hamas will never accept it. They won't even accept international troops at the border to enforce the provisions of a cease fire. If that doesn't tell people who really doesn't want peace, I would have to say that there is no hope for them.

    The UN, what a joke.

    We all must realize that the Palestinians can stop the violence any time they want. They can have freedom any time they want.

    Just recognize Israel's right to exist and the rest can be worked out.

    Both Israel and Hamas rejected the ceasefire proposal.

    I accept the ceasefire proposal on behalf of Israel and Hamas.
    They would probably do a better job selling girl-scout cookies in various symbols of "peace". But if they screw with my thin mints.... oh god..I can't even think about it

    Israel rejected it because it does not meet the minimum requirements they stand for and also because Hamas has said that they won't accept it. It doesn't not call for a unilateral cease fire.

    Hamas wants the blockade to end.

    Israel should just end it. It has nothing to do with any negotiations. What Israel is doing is a war crime. There is nothing Hamas has done that gives Israel the right to starve Gazan children.

    What will bring ultimate peace and freedom and prosperity for the Palestinians, Billo?

    Clue: It's nothing the Israelis must do first.
