    Oh how very clever our Bob is telling Bibi that a two-state solution is required and that negotiations must resume urgently. It seems that Bob perceives that Abbas’ refusal to negotiate is Israel’s fault. It must be that Israeli settlement building is keeping Abbas away. Why, it is inconceivable that the Pals should negotiate without first having the subject of talks agreed to their satisfaction. Bob clearly has made himself deaf to Israeli debate that the two state solution is dead. When it comes to state founding, clearly Bob is not the builder.

    I am so pleased that Bob speaks up for Paly kids who get arrested for violence and anti-Israel activities. Pity that he cannot bring himself to express concern for the PA incitement and the jihadi and national recruiters who violate the rights of the child. But they are Pals who may not be criticised.

      Indeed, one wonders what precisely is Bob Carr attempting to do and convey to the outside world, because conveying ANYTHING in relation to the necessary policies Israel must adopt in THEIR conflict is nothing short of diplomatic arrogance. More to the point is the reality that in the past few years, since Aust. Labor has been in power, Australia’s attitude toward Israel has been one of great REDUCTION in its support of the Jewish state on the international scene and INCREASE of support for the palestinians. NOTHING to be proud of, let alone lecturing Israel.

      The height of hutzpa !!!

    Bob The Hero !!!

    Love the bloke. Want to know why !!!???

    Right there in the heart of the Jewish state, with the Israeli Prime Minister, our Bob is telling them Israelis :

    – how to run their country
    – what problems they are faced with
    – what is best for the palestinians and that them Jews are wronging AGAIN the palestinians

    I really, really hope that Bibi is listening hard to Brave Bob.

    Hang on aminute ! Reading Bibi’s lips what do we see:

    Bibi – Thanks Moishe for telling us how to gefil-da-fish !
    Bob – Well, I am, actually, a bit of a Prophet , thanks, ta, and just watch me stuff-up the fish later on today when I meet Abbas !
