Jeffrey Heller and the Palestinians think only Israeli national suicide a worthy concession

In a speech before Congress today, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated his willingness to embrace a Palestinian state.  He offered to accede to that state on land which is part of the Jewish ancestral homeland.  Land recovered in 1967 following a war waged against Israel by Egypt, Syria and Jordan that cost Israel nearly 4,000 casualties.  He implicitly agreed to the forced relocation of perhaps tens of thousands of Israelis from their homes in order to make way for that Palestinian state.

But for the Palestinian Arabs, who boast openly that they have made no concessions to Israel in negotiations over the years, and for Reuters Editor-in-Charge Jeffrey Heller, a permanent acolyte in the Palestinian camp, Netanyahu conceded not a thing:
But Netanyahu offered no concrete concessions and instead set strict limits on what Israel would accept.
As we used to say when we kids, get a job Jeffrey.
