Clinton tidak bicara tentang mayat manisia yang bergelimpangan dibunuhi serdadu
Israel di Gaza...
Clinton juga tidak bicara tentang daerah Palestina yang diduduki Israel setelah
perng tahun 1967...
Juga tidak ada disinggungnya keadilan yang dituntut oleh orang Palestina yang
sekarang jadi pengungsi setelah negara Israel didirikan.....
Sungguh jauh panggang dari api....

Clinton meets Palestinian leaders

Palestinian Authority [AFP]
Leaders of the Palestinian Authority have urged Hillary Clinton, the US
secretary of state, to push Israel to freeze settlement construction in the
West Bank and open the borders of the Gaza Strip.
Clinton met Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, and Salam Fayyad, the
prime minister, on Wednesday in Ramallah, the administrative headquarters of
the West Bank-based Palestinian Authority (PA).
At the start of the talks Clinton reaffirmed Washington's commitment to a
two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
She also praised Fayyad's plan for rebuilding the Gaza Strip, two days after
pledging $900 million in economic and humanitarian aid at a conference in Egypt.
The US has stated that the additional aid will be funnelled through the PA and
not Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip but does not recognise Israel's right to
Nour Odeh, Al Jazeera's correspondent in Ramallah, said: "Palestinians want to
hear her say those magic words: That the American administration under
President Barack Obama would seek to end the Israeli occupation.
Arab-Americans call for closer ties with the US
"According to senior Palestinian aides of the president, what the Palestinian
Authority is looking for is American support to make sure that any Israeli
government ... respects the principle of a two-state solution ... stops all
settlement activity ... and takes steps on the ground that are in line with the
Israeli obligations as per the road map [peace process]," she said.
Odeh said that Condoleezza Rice, the previous US secretary of state, had
visited the region while Israel violated the terms of the road map and failed
to urge Israel end such activity.
The road map for peace between Israel and the Palestinians was initiated by
former US president George W Bush in 2002.
Its primary conditions include ending Palestinian violence, an Israeli
withdrawal from the occupied Palestinian territories and a freeze of Israeli
settlement building in the West Bank.
Jerusalem's municipality issued orders on Tuesday to demolish 55 homes in Ras
Khamees in Shu'fat Camp, in the centre of Palestinian East Jerusalem.
The municipality said that the homes were built without licences, whereas
rights groups have said that the move is a new episode in Israel's campaign of
collective eviction against Palestinians.
At the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh on Monday, Clinton pledged the
additional aid to help rebuild the Gaza Strip after Israel's 22-day offensive
in the territory in December.
About 1,300 Palestinians and 13 Israelis died during war, before unilateral
ceasefires were declared by Israel and Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip.
On Tuesday, Clinton urged Palestinians to "break the cycle of rejection and
resistance" after meeting Israeli leaders in Jerusalem.
After her meetings in Jerusalem, Clinton emphasised the need for rocket fire
from the Gaza Strip into Israel to end, and defended Israel's right to respond
to such attacks.
However, she has also said that a Palestinian state is the "inevitable" and
"inescapable" outcome of any peace effort.
"During the conference, I emphasised President [Barack] Obama's and my
commitment to working to achieve a two-state solution to the conflict between
Israel and the Palestinians and our support for the Palestinian Authority,"
The statement raises the possibility of disagreement with Benyamin Netanyahu,
the Israeli prime-minister designate, who has said in the past that the
Palestinians are not ready for statehood.
Netanyahu is currently attempting to assemble a ruling coalition, likely to be
made up for hard-right and religious parties, after elections last month.
Though Obama has said that an Arab-Israeli peace deal will be a priority during
his presidency, talks between Israeli officials and the Palestinians have
stalled over violence, settlement-building and disputes over other core issues
such as the future of Jerusalem and Palestinian refugees.
The PA suspended the negotiations after Israel launched its offensive on Gaza,
with a stated aim of ending Palestinian rocket fire into the south of the
