Peaceful State Watch

Bush says the balls in the Palestinians court:

The Palestinians have the onus of moving forward on the road map, US President George Bush said on Tuesday. In a conversation with reporters in Idaho, where Bush is vacationing, the President made it clear that the Palestinians must take the next step towards peace, by reforming their government and their security forces.

“Of course we want to get back to the road map, but I understand that in order for this process to go forward there must be confidence, confidence that the Palestinian people would have with their own government to perform, confidence with the Israelis, that they’ll see a peaceful state emerging,” Bush said.

Charles Johnson at Little Green Footballs, notes, however, that the government of Palestine has already declared that they will not disarm Hamas or Islamic Jihad.

Not only that, but they have also decided to name the former Israeli settlements in Gaza after Yasser Arafat and Sheikh Yassin.

Yasser Arafat was, of course, the founder of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, which later became the Palestinian Authority, the government of the Peaceful State of Palestine. Arafat made it his life's work to kill Jews. He did it in Muich at the Olympics in 1972. He did it on hijacked airliners, where his terrorists separated Jews from Christians, and then proceeded to kill the Jews. He did it from his de facto military base in Lebanon in the 1980's. And he did it when he was allowed back into Israel in the 1990's.

The official Charter of Yasser Arafat's Palestinian Liberation Organization calls for the destruction of Israel. To this day, this charter appears on the Palestinian Authorities official United Nations web site. Click on this link for proof.

Sheikh Yassin was the founder and "spiritual leader" of Hamas. There have been few more blatant in stating their intention to kill the Jews, than was Yassin. For instance, Yassin's Hamas Charter openly called for death to the Jews. Click this link for proof.

The Palestinian Authority and Hamas are the two governing parties of the Peaceful State of Palestine.
