What peace process?

We're told that Israel is serious about peace. We're informed that Palestinians must stop "terrorism" before serious negotiations can occur. We're deluged with propaganda in our media that reassures us that there is a new hope for peace since the death of PLO leader Yasser Arafat. If you believe all this, you're living in fairyland.

How to explain this in yesterday's Haaretz?

"We can't expect to receive explicit American agreement to build freely in the settlements," Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said at Sunday's cabinet meeting. The large blocs of settlement in the West Bank "will remain in Israel's hands and will fall within the (separation) fence, and we made this position clear to the Americans. This is our position, even if they express reservations," he said.

The American Foreign Affairs Department is to Israel what the Australian DFAT is to Schapelle Corby - slow to react and near useless when it finally does.

Since Arafat's death, it's become fairly sickening to see our media follow US/Israeli government spin.

Oh, I'm glad to be back.
