Cheney Tells Palestine and Israel, "Love Hurts"

Cheney Tells Palestine and Israel, "Love Hurts"

Yesterday, US Vice President Dick Cheney attempted to resurrect Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. Cheney met Mahmoud Abbas, the President of the Palestinian Authority, as well as Israeli leaders Sunday, and maintained that an independent Palestine is long overdue.

Of course, achieving that vision won't be easy. Cheney warned that a peace deal will mean "painful concessions" by both sides. Abbas was quick to demand Israeli concessions. He asked Cheney to call on Israel to stop building settlements and stop firing on Palestinian militants.

The Bush Administration is working hard to help Israel and Palestine reach an agreement before Bush leaves office. Bush traveled to the region in January, and will return in May. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice is making monthly visits. Do you think President Bush can bring the two sides together, adding a tangible and commendable accomplishment in the Middle East to his legacy?

Mina x 3 - I completely agree with you. It's really, really sad. And the worst part is that most people in our country have no idea that this is happening and that we're basically funding Israel's reign of, well, terror, basically. Our media constantly portrays Israel as being picked on by Palestine, and really, it's beyond ridiculous.

As long as we refer to Palestinian Christians, Muslims, and Jews as a people with no history and keep funding Israel's $3 billion/year "gift" from the U.S. to their military, we will never be able to help peace in the region - the United States has consistently been more of a hindrance than a help because of our economic involvement in Israel. We consistently block the United Nation's attempts to point out the gross human rights violations on the part of the Israeli military (not that the UN has been much more of a help, mind you), and refuse to acknowledge Palestinians as living under open apartheid, which Nelson Mandela, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, South African civil rights groups, and Israeli civil rights groups have been proclaiming since 1970. It's a real shame that the United States is funding one of the worse human rights violations and the last colonial region in the world - and it's severely affecting the increase in terrorism, as well as making us look like money-grubbing imperialists to the rest of the world.

With Cheney's long history of reconciling various warring factions and listening intently to the woes of others, I believe he'll turn this whole thing around in just a few hours. Or just invade Palestine, whichever's easiest.

I doubt we'll see long-term peace in general, let alone by the time Bush leaves office....

I couldn't believe it's his first visit. I am glad to see him out and about - I thought he ran away.
