I read in the headlines Sarkozy tells Olmert: Israel’s security isn’t up for discussion
Sarkozy told Olmert that France wanted Israel to be creative and make ‘some gestures’ in negotiations with the Palestinians. Sarkozy’s spokesman would not detail what gestures France hopes for from Israel.
Sarkozy ‘indicated that as long as the security of the state of Israel is assured, then one has to show creativity and try to make some gestures,’ Martinon said.
For me that’s not good enough. Any gestures we make put our security at risk. Besides what ever happenned to “secure borders”. Everything else is on the agenda but that.
Besides, Israel has made enough gestures. Where are the Palestinian gestures? Where are the demands for Palestinian gestures?
