Meaningful Talks on Palestine…

The international community has unfinished business to take care of before meaningful talks can take place. And it stands to reason that the correct sequence of events should be:

1. Israel ends the occupation and siege.

2. Israel withdraws behind its pre-1967 borders in compliance with UN resolutions and international law.

3. Talks begin with no gun to the Palestinians’ head.

4. Palestinians are properly represented by their elected leadership, even if that’s Hamas.

If  Americans have a problem with these basics they should keep away from the process and let the UN handle it.

Actually, the UN should have insisted on handling it in the first place. Why doesn’t it get a grip on its responsibilities?
