The warrant for the third intifada is being prepared

Remember this little boy who was killed by Israeli soldiers, except that he wasn't ?? Get ready for Act II, and the manufacturing of outrage.

More will come, and the compulsive consumers of rage and hatred will gobble it up like candy. They need their hourly fix in order to be able to justify the deliberate, premeditated  targeting of Israeli kids for annihilation.

According to the the NYT's Jerusalem correspondent, who started her mission learning about the I/P conflict from her friend, EI's Ali AbuNimah (need more be said about her understanding or knowledge?): 

"Nabil A. Shaath, the Palestinian commissioner for international relations, said in an interview that the West Bank leadership was “doing our best to keep calm” and that “violent confrontation absolutely is not our plan.”
“I don’t know how much people can be contained,” Mr. Shaath said of the Jaradat case. “I don’t think anybody is planning an intifada. The question is how much accidents, incidents like this might lead to an anger that can explode.

According to this source, more than 800,000 Palestinian prisoners have been held in Israeli jails since 1967. You may ponder the likelihood of this one seemingly low-level prisoner dying of torture just now, when clearly the Palestinian leadership is trying to whip up a frenzy of hatred and violence. Remember Pallywood and the case of  Al-Durrah, and what damage that theatre had inflicted on both Israelis and Palestinians.

Remember Arafat's  repeated insistence that he had absolutely no interest in fomenting violence but that "the people" spontaneously combusted after Camp David II? Well, years later the full truth came to light, and from an unimpeachable source:
Yasser Arafat’s widow, Suha, admitted that the late Palestinian leader planned the second intifada, in an interview with Dubai TV earlier this month, according to a translation by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
“Immediately after the failure of the Camp David [negotiations], I met him in Paris upon his return.... Camp David had failed, and he said to me, ‘You should remain in Paris.’ I asked him why, and he said, ‘Because I am going to start an intifada. They want me to betray the Palestinian cause. They want me to give up on our principles, and I will not do so,"
Any genuine peace loving activist out there ought to realize by now that all it needs for Palestinian plight to end is a will to peace, which will translate into a very simple principle: All we Palestinians want is to be Palestinians. We will no longer kill, seek to kill, educate to kill or want to kill any Israeli Jew. Once that paradigm shift takes place, every obstacle that causes Palestinian suffering will fall away like a dry scab from a healed wound.

Surely this is not such an impossible thing to do?
