JERICHO (Ma'an) -- A senior Palestinian official said Thursday that Israel was responsible for destroying the peace process and the two-state solution.

After holding a series of meetings with foreign ministers and ambassadors, Chief PLO Negotiator Saeb Erekat said that unless the international community started holding Israel responsible for its actions, any chance for a two-state solution would be lost.

Erekat condemned ongoing Israeli settlement activity, which he said was a message from Israel to US Secretary of State John Kerry to stop making efforts toward peace.

He also denounced Israel's recent airstrikes against the Gaza Strip, and warned the Israeli government of the repercussions of any military escalation. He said the strikes were also based on an Israeli policy to foil peace efforts.

Earlier Thursday, Erekat met with Australian Shadow Minister of Foreign Affairs Tanya Plibersek, UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Robert Serry, New Zealand's ambassador in Turkey and Palestine Taha MacPherson, and a German delegation.

On Wednesday, Peace Now announced that Israel was planning 256 housing units in two settlements across the West Bank.

Also Wednesday, an Israeli airstrike killed two Palestinians in the northern Gaza Strip, including one accused by Israel of ordering rocket attacks.

Israel may be "destroying chances for 2-state solution", on the PLO's terms, but no more so than the PLO is "destroying chances for 2-state solution", on Israel's terms, and SINCE Neither will ever accept the other's terms,
** THE ONE-STATE & ONE-AUTHORITY SOLUTION IS PERMANENT,
regardless of how unpleasant it may be for the two parties or world.

It takes two to tango. Palestinians are equally responsible by not negotiating in good faith for decades.

This is mine mentality must stop, and this is our's must flurish! Two states in the "Holy Land" is a affront to our Father in heaven who LOVES us all equally!
We "ALL" for short of the GLORY of "GOD" because we refuse to "LOVE ONE ANOTHR AS OURSELVES" by "GODS GRACE" not our intelligence, or our power, or our self proclaimed rightousnes do we deserve anything! It is by his "Grace" that we go forward with hope and comfort. "BLESSED ARE THE PEACE MAKERS! Efforts should be made to unify together!
