The Dangers Of Geneva 

Charles Krauthammer slams the Geneva "Accord" to be signed by Israeli and Palestinian politicians (via LGF). He illustrates the political unpopularity of the major Israeli proponent of the pact, Yossi Beilin, and the dangerous concessions that this document would provide to the Palestinians if it was ever taken seriously.

However, it appears that the State Department is giving this sellout of Israel some positive encouragement. The US Embassy in Bern will be sending an observer to the signing, and Colin Powell himself has written to commend Beilin and Yasser Abed Rabbo, Beilin's Palestinian counterpart. He even plans to meet with them in the future.

That the people of Israel have rejected the treacherous strategies of Beilin and the Oslo process is encouraging. That the US State Department still stands by these paths to Israel's destruction is not.
