I took part in a conference call with Natan Sharansky – I’ll load it but the audio is poor :(
I did ask him the following:
Pamela: You were at AIPAC and I saw that most of the panels that dealt with the Palestinian issue are still talking two state solution as if its de facto. Don’t you think that’s putting the cart before the horse. And don’t you think American Jewish leadership should take a more proactive role in denouncing this plan?
Sharansky: I don’t think American Jewish leadership has to take a more active role in denouncing this plan. I think everybody in the American Jewish leadership should open their eyes and BTW the overwhelming majority of Israelis [inaudible] don’t think that peace can be achieved — that at this moment there is no Palestinian leader who really believes in the two state solution And the more we participate it this process the more the Palestinians operate against this option.
We are seeing a very interesting cooperation between the enemies of Israel who want to destroy Israel, and that’s why they don’t believe in a two state solution. They believe there will be one state where Israel, simply as a Jewish state, will disappear. And at the same time, multiculturalists, professors, so called liberals, speak more and more against a Jewish state and want one state for the citizens. But that means in fact – the same – disappearance of Israel as a Jewish state…… so the thing is, it’s not because of us stopping it, but because of the logic, the reality that the two state solution has become irrelevant and I don’t think we have to take the initiative in fighting against this theory not but it’s not because we are not ready for this , it is because there are so many hopes of fundamentalists, on one hand, and multiculturists on the other hand, that the Jewish state of Israel will disappear.
I disagree with Sharansky here. We must be more vocal about it. It is being pursuing vigorously — I guess "reality and logic" are not in Condi and co’s vocabulary. Their "thinking" is hardwired for delusion not logic.

I can’t believe the "Israel Lobby" sat still for this – from Condoleezza Rice:
"… the ideology of violent extremism is not something that a majority in the Middle East will actually support."
Doesn’t she read the New York Times? March 19, page A-10:
UPDATE: Over at Front page: "In at least twenty critical matters of Middle East foreign policy, the US State Department has acted independently of US Congressional approval in its implementation of Middle East policy."
1. The US State Department has ignored all data brought to its attention from Israeli intelligence which provides documents, records minutes, and recordings which demonstrate Abu Mazen’s direct involvement with the PLO murder campaign which has ensued over the past three years, which has resulted in more than 18,000 terror attacks and more than 800 Israeli citizens who have been murdered by Arab terrorists in cold blood.
2. The US State Department has demanded that Israel free hundreds of Arabs who have been involved in acts of premeditated murder, meaning that Israel would have to free Arab terrorists who qualify as not having "blood on their hands" because while they tried to hurt people with bullets, bombs and rocks, they missed.
3. The US State Department has demanded that Israel free members of Arab terror organizations who are ideologically committed to murdering Jews.
4. The US State Department has refused to demand that the PLO withdraw its sentence of death for any Jew who lives in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, Katif or the Golan.
