At a site called, no less, Truthful, he had on March 9, 2006 an article entitled
Colonization of Palestine Precludes Peace which represents his observation of the Palestinian elections in January.
Israel's occupation of Palestine has obstructed a comprehensive peace agreement in the Holy Land...Down through the years, I have seen despair and frustration evolve into optimism and progress and, even now, we need not give up hope for permanent peace for Israelis and freedom and justice for Palestinians if three basic premises are honored:
1. Israel's right to exist - and to live in peace - must be recognized and accepted by Palestinians and all other neighbors;
2. The killing of innocent people by suicide bombs or other acts of violence cannot be condoned; and
3. Palestinians must live in peace and dignity, and permanent Israeli settlements on their land are a major obstacle to this goal.
So facile, so simplistic, so wrong.
