Would the ATFP please ikhras

The American Task Force On Palestine issued a press release welcoming the resumption of the peace process charade.  In addition to congratulating Obama on getting the negotiations “back on track”, the  ATFP absurdly equates Palestinian suffering with Israeli suffering, and calls for Palestinains to take “concrete steps” to “instill mutual confidence”. We are not told which sort of measures taken by an occupied and brutalized population would be concrete enough to instil confidence in their occupier and colonizer.

The ATFP also believes that a US regime that sustains the Zionsit colonial regime and is complict in all of Israels crimes “has a crucial role to play in facilitating negotiations that will result in a successful outcome.”  And according to the ATFP a “succesful outcome is an “independent Palestinian state to live side-by-side in peace with a secure Israel — within internationally recognized borders and with normal relations across the Middle East.” In other words, a few bantustans that the Israelis will generously allow the Palestinians to refer to as a state and the Arab world’s normalization with Zionism.
