Onthebalcony, DrMorocco;

Israel is afraid of this because it will eventually open the door to immense legal prosecution against Israel in world bodies like the UN.

So far the only things that have protected Israel from being the most sanctioned country in history are:

1) The united states veto power.

2) The Palestinians non-state status.

Israel is 100% disingeuous about peace and a 2 state solution, and always has been.

Its every action proves that it is fully committed to forcing every single Palestinian to leave and seek a better life, by making their lives hell in every imaginable way.

That way there is no one left to negotiate with… and they will crap on forever until the Palestinians give up, full stop.

Funny that the only thing Israel and the US can come up with is the threat to withhold money – not an argument that the Palestinians aren’t entitled to the same recognition Israel demands for itself. Civilized people do not deny the rights of others they claim for themselves. Israel can howl, “Terrorists!” until the cows come home, but what do you call a people who boots others out of their own country and homes and moves in without so much as a by your leave? Israel is meeting itself, and it will continue to do so until it treats the Palestinians the same way it wants to be treated by the rest of the world. It’s called “The Golden Rule.”
