Israel criticizes Palestinians’ invitation to Security Council to visit occupied territories


–ed note–sounds perfectly reasonable to any reasonable person. Why would Israel object to such a thing if there was  nothing to hide? In fact, IF Israel truly were the ‘enlightened’ democracy she claims to be, SHE would be the one offering the invite to the UNSEC.

The fact however that Proser is doing the typically-Jewish thing of trying to change the subject shows that indeed Israel DOES have something to hide and is terrified of what is going to be found when/if such an event takes place.

UNITED NATIONS — The Palestinians have invited the U.N. Security Council to visit the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem, a move Israel says is an attempt to try to divert attention from getting back to direct negotiations to settle the decades-old conflict.Riyad Mansour, the Palestinian U.N. observer, told reporters after a council meeting on the Mideast on Tuesday that he sent a letter inviting the 15 council members “to see with their own eyes the reality of the Palestinian people in the occupied territory” including Israel’s “illegal” settlement building.

 Israel’s United Nations Ambassador Ron Prosor, who followed Mansour to the microphone, expressed surprise at the invitation saying “this is an attempt to try and divert attention, and again try and internationalize the conflict, and not really try and stick to what is important on both sides — and that is direct negotiations.”

Mansour and Prosor spoke after U.N. political chief B. Lynn Pascoe told the council that exploratory low-level talks in Amman, Jordan between the Israelis and Palestinians had stalled and prospects for resuming direct negotiations “remain dim.”“The situation on the ground in both Gaza and the West Bank remains dangerous and ultimately unsustainable,” he said.

Pascoe urged Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to overcome the political impasse using an outline proposed by the U.S., U.N., European Union and Russia — the so-called Quartet — to try to reach a negotiated solution by the end of the year.

Mansour and Prosor each blamed the other side for the failure of the Amman talks, which ended in late January.

Mansour said that in five meetings in Jordan the Israelis introduced ideas that are in “complete contradiction with the global consensus” that negotiations must begin on the basis of pre-1967 war borders, with agreed land swaps, and that Israel’s security would be guaranteed by third parties but not a single Israeli soldier would be left on Palestinian land.

“The Israeli side is refusing to negotiate on the basis of the global consensus,” he said, expressing hope that the Security Council will try “to stop the situation from possibly exploding.”

Prosor said that before inviting the Security Council to the region, the Palestinians should send president Abbas to visit Gaza, which is controlled by his Islamic militant political rivals Hamas, who refuse to recognize Israel’s existence. He said Abbas hasn’t visited Gaza since 2007.

Prosor accused Abbas of flying from Jordan to Qatar where instead of responding to a serious Israeli package of proposals he signed a unity deal with Hamas and gave “a horrible speech trying to deny the connection between the Jewish people and the state of Israel.”

The Palestinians invited the Security Council to visit the Palestinian territories a year ago while a resolution was being debated that would have condemned “illegal” Israeli settlements and demanded an immediate halt to all settlement building.

The U.S., Israel’s closest ally, objected to the draft and proposed a weaker presidential statement which the Palestinians rejected. The United States then vetoed the resolution in February 2011 and blocked a council visit to the Palestinian territories.

The Security Council held closed-door discussions Tuesday afternoon on possible trips later this year and diplomats said the Palestinian invitation was certain to be raised. Portugal’s U.N. Ambassador Jose Filipe Moraes Cabral said afterwards that no decisions were made.

    Scum-bags, organ stealers, sellers of blood diamonds, dope dealers, thieves, liars, murderers, hypocrites, propagandists, war mongers, racists, xenophobics, elitists, supremacists, blackmailers……

    I know I’m missing some adjectives that describe the Zionists, how ’bout some help….

    We have the nerve, the chutzpah, to criticise China and Russia for vetoing a recent resolution against Syria, when we’ve done it for Israel dozens of times. That’s really something, huh?
    What hypocrisy.

    That’s a great pic, by the way, as are the cartoons, which I copy and send out to everyone, including the NYT and other newspapers. That Jew-boy punk-ass, second from the right; I’d like to break his jaw. I’m gettin’ old and over the hill, but I’d bet I’d whip all their asses at once. If I saw something like that here, there would be a brawl, I promise you that. Cowards.

    Referring to the photo: That Jewish gene pool sure creates some ugly thugs. What a lovely way to spend a beautiful day in Palestine; find a woman that is by herself, circle her, mock her and show those big horse teeth & your demonic laughter that signifies hate not happiness & good cheer.
    The only thing close to this behavior in the US that I’ve seen are groups of school kids, say 12-13 will occasionally gang up on some unlucky child — but everyone rushes to make it end, while the photo doesn’t seem to attract any attention. Leads one to conclude that the harassment by Jews is routine?

    Yes, the world needs to visit OPT, the people of the world will put an end to the insane zionist project.
