George Jonas: Palestinians want peace. Just not with Israel

by George Jonas, August 13, 2011 originally posted at fullcomment.nationalpost.com

The Palestinian Authority proposes to become the 194th member of the United Nations by a unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state in September. Those who complain that such a declaration undermines the peace process with Israel don’t understand that that’s the declaration’s purpose.
 
If “Palestine 194” were designed to coexist with the Jewish state, it wouldn’t have to be declared unilaterally. Since it’s designed to replace it, it has no other choice. If the Palestinian state comes about as a result of negotiations, it legitimizes the Jewish state.
 
It isn’t that Palestinians don’t want peace. They want peace, all right; it’s only that they don’t want peace with Israel.
