I put the following on Syriacomment: What the palestinians must do urgently: build a new PLO, as elected as possible, to represent both Islamist and secular Palestinians in the lands stolen in 48, the lands stolen in 67, and outside. The PA should be abolished; and the Oslo/Road Map farce officially abandoned. Then Palestinians have to decide what their aims and strategies will be.

Personally, I’ve gone off the two state solution even as an interim step. If there are to be two states, 50% of Palestine seems like the minimum to be sought. But I really do wonder if we can ever live with these people, these invaders, who think that one of them is worth 300 of us.

I hope Syria’s peace talks will not resume. Israel aims for Syrian surrender, and to dictate Syria’s foreign policy and alliances. This is completely unacceptable. All the Syrians I talk to find it unacceptable.

And the Arabs: it’s easy for me to talk big from my workstation in the UK, but it’s a fact that nothing is going to improve for the Palestinians until the more disgusting client regimes are shaken. If there were a regime like Syria’s in Egypt (surely not much to ask) Hamas would have support, as Hizbullah did. What has Mubarak’s gangster-capitalism client state done for anyone, in terms of economy, public health and education, culture, rights, or anything else?
