Celebrating the recent Hamas/Fatah unity agreement in Gaza city

Dear Editor,

Rival Palestinian groups Hamas and Fatah have reached a rapprochement and announced they are forming a government of technocrats ending years of bitter political division. Netanyahu, PM of Israel who has used Palestinian division as an excuse not to make peace is now wanting the world to believe that Palestinian reconciliation is an excuse for the same purpose. 

The two-state solution is no closer today than it was 20 years ago when the Oslo Accords were signed.  The current  round of negotiations due to be completed by April 29th was doomed by Israel’s determination to  continue settlement-colony expansion on Palestinian land and more latterly by its refusal to abide by its agreement to release a fourth round of Palestinian prisoners. The longer Israel avoids a resolution to the conflict, the more time there is for people to understand its root causes. 

The growing international momentum of the non-violent Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS)  campaign to isolate Israel, enables people to understand that the just solution is a single democratic state in Israel/Palestine where human rights for all its citizens are recognised, be they Jewish, Christian or Muslim.

    Not surprising at all, as the NZ news media are hundred percent Zionist dominated. But please note that it is not the editorial staff that is to blame, they are quite willing to publish I believe, but they have to follow instructions and guidelines from ‘above’, i.e. Fairfax and probably further afield.
