Beware the Ides, in the Guardian

Israel acts not just with absolute impunity, but with the support of western powers: that is the message that has been reinforced in Jericho. See my full article in the Guardian's new Comment is Free blog.

I commented on another article in Comment is Free after seeing your link (using which allows you to bypass registration by using others' login details).

Your article was very interesting. We get such a skewed view of the news here in Britain that we have to go and search out 'the other side' for ourselves.

I love the picture of you and your son. On TV here, we only ever get the 'newsworthy' pictures from Gaza (usually of fighting) - and forget that there are ordinary people in extrodinary circumstances there, trying to get on with their normal family life.

What utter nonsense. The PA and Israel had a deal signed in 2002 about these prisoners. The PA decided it wasn't bound to the terms of the deal. So Israel decided it wasn't bound either.
It's time the Palestinian people learned this elementary lesson.

Elementary lesson 1

Do not trust Israel. History proves Israel is not to be trusted, one can hope that can change in the future, but until we see signs of change, do not trust Israel.

End of lesson.

"How is it that a proud, boastful ethnic cleanser like Ze'evi could sit in the Israeli cabinet ... for years and not one of those western officials who today threaten the Palestinians with an end to all aid for electing Hamas uttered not one single word? "

My answer : How is it that a etnic cleanser like Saddam Hussein could be in power for years and not a single palestinian oficial uttered a single word ?

It is tragic that human beings see other peoples sins but seem unable to look at themselves.

In a way human beings behave like children . They point finger the other but they are unable to look at themselves.

Just a few weeks ago.., Hamas visited Moscow and declared the killings and murder of civilians in Chechnya was an internal russian affair.

The palesttinian oficial does attack european oficials for ignoring the misdeeds of a member of the Israeli Government.., a couple of days after a palestinian delegation to moscow ignored the more than 100 000 chechen victims.

(Give me a break )

Hi solitarioh2005,

'My answer : How is it that a etnic cleanser like Saddam Hussein could be in power for years and not a single palestinian oficial uttered a single word ?'

'Arab "Palestinian" leader Mahmoud Abbas apologized on Sunday for the PLO's support of Saddam Hussein following Iraq's 1990 invasion of Kuwait.
Asked by reporters about the Palestinians' support for Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait, Abbas responded: "Yes, we apologize for what we have done."
Abbas' remarks came during the first trip by a top Arab "Palestinian" official to Kuwait since the 1990-91 Gulf War soured Arab "Kuwaiti"-Arab "Palestinian" ties. '

Better late than never.
