    Sorry, can't find another mention of in an English website...feel free to post if you want.

    Since the P.A. has already violated it on numerous occasions (and Israel as well re: settlements but that's always a dispute), it's not that much of a surprise. I believe Arafat already declared them invalid a few times, and the Oslo Accords were supposed to be temporary...we're about 10 years overdue for a peace plan now.

    If Hamas & PA want to go unilateral, so can Israel, I suppose. It doesn't look like the PA cared about the Oslo accords, anyway. And Israel kept expanding settlements.

    BUT the Oslo Accords outline the PA's authority over the West Bank, their economic/tax authority, their security forces, and a few other things. It's a shaky roadmap to peace, but it's the most-cited one.

    Thoughts? Israel has said this before and so has the PA, but now we have a statehood bid here.

    At the Taba Summit in 2001, the PA rejected Israel's annexation of settlement blocks (aka 'mutual agreement on swapped territory') so I assume the PA will now feel free to call Gilo, east J'lem, and Ariel their own.

    Oslo Accords has been violated by the Israel many times and Palestine should not be swayed by any attempt to intimidate the Palestinians from going to the U.N and asking for recognition. Fascist Israel doesn't want peace with Palestine and they are afraid to give Palestine any recognition.

    Israel is a pluralistic society that enjoys a parliamentary system. Hamas is more fascist than Israel. Political Theory 101 is down the hall and to your right.

    It's German, but it's about rise in settlements since Oslo.
    Red line is number of persons in settlements, Blue bar is yearly new constructions.

    The deadline for the expansion of Palestinian autonomy to the West Bank passes without an agreement.

    They can claim anything they want. Doesn't mean they will get it.

    Good! Let Israel annex the West Bank and evacuate the Arabs from there and turn the entire area to Israel like it was before the Romans conquered it.

    Palestine, too, is a pluralistic society with a parliamentary system except it does not have all those discriminatory laws.

    Could you give more details on that Hamas, fascist thing?
