US style democracy: 'Forcing a diet on palestinians' as to hasten the next elections and pave the way for a 'satisfactory' outcome

One slip of the tongue after another, Dov. Weissglass, foreign minister in Sharon's cabinet and in the present Olmert-Kadima Israeli led government, demonstrates the contempt and the humiliating way by which Israeli officials consider the Palestinians as well as the meddling of the US in the Free Democratic elections they so longed and worked for in the Middle east !

When Sharon launched the idea of the unilateral withdrawal, Weissglass explained to Haaretz thet this move should not anger the settlers because it is intended to put the Peace Process in Formaldehyde (a liquid in which dead tissues are kept for conservation and dissection).
After the Hamas victory, he was one of the first to advocate coercing Hamas electors (3/4 of all the palestinians) by forcing a Diet on the PA and on palestinian people as a whole, so next time they will think twice before voting for their representatives against the wishes of Israel ! Forcing a Diet on palestinians, as the NYT revealed, is intended to provoke elections in the near future and to make palestinians reconsider their choice of representatives according to the expectations of the US, EU and Israel !

''The unsuccessful comments by Dov Weissglas - whose position and source of authority in the present government is difficult to understand - regarding the need to put the Palestinian nation on a diet, but not to starve it, symbolizes more than anything the humiliating way in which Israel relates to the Palestinians, which was one of the factors in Hamas' rise to power. It is unnecessary and degrading to recommend a diet to a hungry and unemployed nation, in addition to which Israel is still responsible for preventing hunger in all parts of the West Bank that it controls as an occupying power. At this stage Hamas is acting more responsibly than the Israeli government. Its representatives speak of a new era, of a transition from terror to politics, of continued opposition to occupation via other means, and of aspirations to a long-term hudna (cease-fire). ''
