Are you aware of any government that is opposed to dividing the land of Israel and creating a sovereign Palestinian state? I am not aware of any.
But, if it is true that the Oslo Accords, signed back in the '90s by Israel and the Palestinians, forbade unilateral moves by either side, then any move on the part of either Palestinian or Israeli leaders that would break that major diplomatic agreement would threaten future peace talks.
Is this not the underlying reason why Canada, the U.S., Germany, Czech Republic, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau and Panama opposed the unilateral move and resolution by the Palestinian leadership to be recognized as a state at the UN (without direct negotiation with the State of Israel)? Does not the UN Security Council have to vote in the affirmative before any sovereign state is recognized?
Palestinian people have suffered much, and many of us would like to encourage and advocate justice, mercy and compassion by the Israeli government toward them, while also advocating the Palestinian government exercise justice, mercy and compassion towards its own people.
I would encourage readers (especially those given to attacking our elected prime minister and cabinet ministers, such as John Baird) to read the balanced views of Joel C. Rosenberg, who advocates that the path to peace is direct negotiations between Jerusalem and Ramallah, in keeping with the best advice: "turn from evil and do good, seek peace and pursue it."
