Mark goes off on Abbas on the radio, says ‘genocide’ charge means no peace

“Genocide is a word that’s being thrown around a lot by Palestinians,” says Mideast political analyst Mark Lavie in a live broadcast on KQV Radio in Pittsburgh, and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s use of it at the UN shows there’s no point in resuming Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. And of course Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu can be expected to hit back hard.

You know my conclusion–a solution must be imposed from outside.

Turns out I’m not the only one talking of an imposed solution. I admit that my old friend Eitan Haber (who can forget his announcing the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin outside the hospital that horrible night) isn’t happy about it. I can’t say I am, either–it would have been so much better if the Palestinians had accepted one of Israel’s two detailed and viable state offers in 2000 and 2008.
