The Sound of a Broken Heart

Newly leaked documents reveal that the Palistinean Authority was willing to concede far more than ever imagined.  These concessions included ceding control of East Jerusalem, accepting limits on the right of return to 100 000, and letting Israel annex parts of the West Bank.  Israel said no.  Israel did not make a counter offer.  Israel said no. The supposedly pro peace government under Olmert said no.

For the past four years, I have defended the actions of Israel.  I have not agreed with everything they have done but I believed devoutly from the bottom of my heart that they were the grown ups at the table. Don’t get me wrong, I believed, and still do, that there were those within the Palestinian leadership that wanted peace, but they were too vulnerable to act.   Well, it turns out I was wrong. I was lied to. It hurts, I feel betrayed and angry. The only thing that I can hope for is that the Israeli population feels the same as I do and that maybe just maybe this can force the Israeli government to act in good faith.
