URGENCY is the Watchword

I am always amazed when one particular word or another catches fire and is used by multiple parties. That is the case with the popularity of the current watchword... "Urgency."
Though much of America is distracted by the what is happening with Obamacare and the Liberal attempt to explain away 'grass roots Amercia,' events continue to compound in regards to Israel and the Palestinians.
One of the things the Israelis distrust the most is extended periods of "LULL." Weeks and months on end when no rockets are fired, no invasions are impending, and things seem to be peacfull. That usually spells trouble. The trouble being spelled out now comes in the form of the words O-B-A-M-A, M-E-R-K-L-E, and the EUROPEAN UNION. The push is on to force Israel into a two-state solution for the Palestian issue, and the term being bandied now is the word URGENT. (That is Greek for Yesterday!)
This comes from today's Jerusalem Post.... and pay specific attention to the last paragraph.
Germany: Urgent progress is needed on settlements

As Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu prepares for his trip next week to England and Germany, an official in Berlin said Friday that urgent action is needed on the issue of settlements, Reuters reported.

"We and our partners the Americans have made very clear that we see the settlements issue as one of the biggest impediments to a two-state solution," German Foreign Ministry spokesman Andreas Peschke said. "There must be urgent progress on the settlements to make progress on
Middle East peace."

Peschke added that while there were signs that Israel was "thinking seriously" about its policies, "we don't have any definitive movement on the settlements question yet."

In a brief statement issued later Friday afternoon, Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor rejected the comments, saying "these are disconnected statements, without any diplomatic context. These statements are not part of any diplomatic negotiations, they are unrelated to reality and distort it."

In July German Chancellor Angela Merkel called on Israel to end settlement construction, saying such activity jeopardized efforts toward a two-state solution.
"I think it is now important to get commitments from all sides and that includes the issue of settlement building," Merkel said in a speech to the Bundestag. "I am convinced that there must be a stop to this. Otherwise we will not come to the two-state solution that is urgently needed."During that same month, Ruprecht Polenz, the head of the German parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee and an ally of Merkel, said that Israel risked committing gradual suicide as a democratic state if it does not stop building beyond the green line.
I find it fascinating that those pushing Israel to the peace table cannot see that giving up land for peace to people bent on destroying their very existence is the actual suicide. A spirit of DUMB has not only struck America, it has struck the entire planet. Blindness, dullness of hearing the truth, and inability to act with wisdom, and just plain stupidity have captured the human race.
