The Difference Between Lieberman and Netanyahu About Decades of Fruitless Negotiations

By Hassan El-Najjar

Editor of Al-Jazeerah & CCUN

September 29, 2010

The Lieberman's UN speech should be considered an important document for editors, researchers, journalists, and readers.

It represents the real position of the Zionist Movement, which has a global domination agenda, and as a result cannot allow the State of Israel to be just another state in the Middle East. Zionists consider it as their frontier garrison now and the headquarters of their global empire in the future.  They cannot accept a sovereign and independent Palestinian state. This will be a corner stone in the decline of the global Zionist empire, which controls NATO countries, and through them controls many regions of the world.

Like Shamir before him, Lieberman is telling the world from the United Nations that the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations are phony and will continue for decades.

Lieberman represents the blunt, rough, and arrogant faction of the Zionist Movement. He intends to humiliate all gentiles, blind servants and foes alike. The Netanyahu-Barak like Zionists have the same agenda but their style is different. They don't like to embarrass the gentiles serving them in NATO countries and the Middle East. Therefore, they talk about peace and get engaged in peace negotiations for decades but for no results.

While Lieberman has shown his iron fest to the world, bare and clear, Netanyahu and Barak have kept their fests covered with velvet by talking about negotiations, the two-state solution, and peace, just talking about these things the gentiles like to hear about.

Zionism and peace are incompatible concepts. Period.

Netanyahu: “Lieberman’s UN Speech Does Not Represent Israel’s Official Stance”

Wednesday September 29, 2010 10:26 by Saed Bannoura - IMEMC & Agencies

Following a controversial speech at the UN General Assembly by the Israeli occupation government foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, in which he said peace could take decades, the Israeli occupation government prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, issued a statement rejecting the speech and stating that it was not coordinated.

Lieberman said that peace is unlikely in the current stage, and the Land for Peace principle should be dropped during final status talks with the Palestinians.

A statement by the office of Netanyahu said that the speech of Lieberman does not represent Israel’s official stance regarding the peace process, and that the speech was not coordinated with Netanyahu, the person who runs the talks on the Israeli side.

The statement added that different segments of any peace deal will only be determined on the negotiations table.

Israeli Defense Minister, Ehud Barak of the Labor Party, also stated that the statements of Lieberman do not represent Israel’s official stance, and added that the Labor party believes in the necessity of negotiations in order to achieve peace.

In his Tuesday UN speech in New York, Lieberman said that the solution should not be land swap but should instead be based on “demography”.

He said that one of the issues that create the conflict is “constant contact between peoples of two nations and two different languages”.

Lieberman also demanded the Palestinians to recognize Israel as a Jewish state, and added that the issue of the refugees and Jerusalem are obstructing the talks.

He stated that, “through its agents”, Iran can foil any peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians and with Lebanon.

His statement led Palestinian delegates attending the meeting to leave, The Palestinian permanent observer at the UN, Riyad Mansour, told Reuters that Lieberman is “totally isolated from reality”.

Israeli PM, Netanyahu, was fast in rejecting the statements of Lieberman and said that he hopes that his upcoming Paris meeting with Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, next month will be positive.

Netanyahu also phoned French President, Nicolas Sarcoxie, and U.S Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton, informing them that he is interested in productive talks with Abbas in order to achieve a peace deal within a year.

U.S Middle East Envoy, George Mitchell, will be holding meetings on Wednesday with Israeli officials and intends to hold a meeting on Thursday with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah.

On his side, Abbas said that negotiations with Israel cannot be held while it resumes its settlement activities in the occupied West Bank and in occupied East Jerusalem.
