Fascinating. The PA is a terrorist supporting organization. Tim asks some tough questions. Essentially, the PA cannot get over the fact that there will never be a palestinian state at the 67 borders. Ever. And they’re like a stubborn child refusing to compromise. Israel has offered to only annex the large settlement blocs which practically need to stay under Israeli control. Until the PA refuses to give money to terrorists and their families in some desperate push to force Israelis back to 67 borders, they will stay taking losses

As long as there is aipac, the negotiation is bound to fail. Period. It's like having your neighbour taking your living room, and asking the village headman as arbitration whose on a payroll from you. It is bound to fail and Palestinians still hope they can get it done through negotiations, as this is dragged on, Israel win. They will take Inch inch of the land until Palestine is unheard of. Tim Sebastian needs to see that clearly. The odds and cards on the table is already as little as it is, stacked against Palestinian.

The question he should ask was, why is it hard to get a peace deal etc, what is the demand of Israel that's really hard.

Mr. Erekat .. All the lies you said is not even seen by an ant .. the PA is corrupted and "Fatah" orgnization which you are representing is milking people and controling all the jobs.. anyone trying to say NO will be throwen to the central jail in your glorious city "Jericho" .. Abbas & his followers & his sons are making west bank as its their own farm. enough! the world must stop aiding those dictators .. the world must kick out those mofos.

Erekat is a Dinosaur like his president. They pretend everything is ok and lead a democratic state. They don’t have a plan for people of Palestine. Best plan is to have one country for two nations. Shame on them all!

People fail to understand that if the P.L.O. were to "Liberate Palestine" then the P.L.O. would cease to exist and all of those P.L.O. people would be out of jobs so the P.L.O. keeps fooling people into thinking they're trying to make "real peace" when in fact their job is to "prohibit peace" in order to keep their Organization up and running.

Tim Sebestain is one of the best better than all the rest

Notice he keeps comparing his record to the Arab and Muslim World. That's not exactly a high bar. :-)

How many years as refugees on the dole? BS. Let them assimilate like they should have done after the war and make a living like everyone else.
