Mideast "Peace Process" Makes for Surreal Headlines

In the surreal world of Mideast "peace processes," in which the media plays along with the charade that there are actually two sides involved, surreal headlines tend to come with the territory. Here's a recent few that come to mind:

Gaza Strip ceasefire holds despite rocket attacks on Israel

More rockets hit Israel despite day-old Gaza ceasefire

As rocket fire fades, Israel talks of deal for 'real peace'

Erekat: Despite violation, truce can and must hold

Terrorists: Ceasefire means chance to reload

Israel offers state -- Hamas calls it 'conspiracy'

One has to wonder at what point Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's delusional quest for "peace" will run smack dab into reality?

In the meantime, the so-called international community, including the United States, continues to pretend that Palestinian "ceasefires" actually mean something.

At this rate, we can expect another UN-sponsored hudna any day now.

Bizarro World indeed.

Talk about the wrong man at the wrong time. Olmert is a pathetic weenie.

When are the Israelis going to wake up to reality?

hi,

i read your lengthy anti-carter artical, and thought i might share my opinion with you.

after reading your background and heritage, i am wondering why, as a jewish american your allegiance is more with the state of israel, rather then the US.

please allow me to explain.

any talk or mention in the media, whether its in books, tv, or radio thats critical of israeli policies is immediately attacked first as anti-semetic, and then, anti-american by mostly jewish americans and non-jewish neo-cons.

i would like to know why we in the US cannot speak openly about israel, to whome we aid with billions of our taxes, along with their neighbor, egypt, whome we must also provide billions of our taxes so they dont go to war with israel. i mean, what is israel's problem? imho, after arming israel with traditional and nuclear weapons capable to blowing up the whole mideast, we should be able to expect israel to take care of itself without further help from us.

frankly, i believe jewish americans like you undermine our american interests with people with whome we americans dont have a bone to pick.

and to be frank, instead of making a real push to make friends, your beloved israel is far more at risk today from goons like al-qaeda, rather then iran or any state.. as long as you keep trying to drag the US in israeli arab conflict, your beloved israel, again, imho is in increasing danger of feeling 'safe' because uncle sam is behind them.
