A prominent academic long ostracized for not being in leftarded lockstep with groupthink academia said, "These intellectuals, some of whom I know or whose work I know are morally and politically insane."
Just as the Vietnamese didn't win that war on the ground,they won it in the United States with the help of the American Left - the Palis will win the war with the critical help of the Israeli left. But the consequences are infathomable. Hamas has no plans to accept Israel's existence.
Despite whatever wishful thinking the useful idiots might imagine, the Palestinians, be they Fatah or Hamas, have no intention of being a partner to Israel. They are a exactly what they claim to be and history has shows them to be, a lethal threat.
11 prominent authors and intellectuals announced Sunday that they would publicly call upon the government to reach an agreement with the Palestinians and to negotiate with Hamas.
The petition, which will be made public Monday, calls upon Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to make every possible effort to arrive at an agreement with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas at the upcoming middle East peace summit in November.
Israel was never the obstacle, asshats.
The intellectuals will also demand that Hamas be engaged in talks in order to bring about a ceasefire with the organization.
"In the past Israel has negotiated with its worst enemies," the petition reads. "And now, the correct course of action is to negotiate with Hamas in an effort to foment a general cease fire that will prevent further suffering on both sides."
The signatories are A. B. Yehoshua, Amos Oz, David Grossman, Meir Shalev, Eli Amir, Savion Librecht, Yehoshua Sobol, Esti G. Haim, Prof. Alice Shalvi and Dorit Ravinian.
I shall book these names along side Arafat, Nasrallah, Yassin etc. as enemies of life, liberty and free men.
