Israeli’s Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert – and likely future Prime Minster – has announced his plans if Kadima wins the March 28 election. The Jewish state must “separate” from the Palestinians, he claims. An independent Palestinian state is impossible, however, if these ideas are implemented:
“We will hold on to the major settlement blocs (in the West Bank). We will keep Jerusalem united.”
Hamas may have a few things to say about that, as they should. If the international community is serious about building a contiguous Palestinian state, Olmert’s comments should be condemned as the expansionist Zionism that they are.
