What Is The Worth of Signed Agreements?

Not even the paper they are written on.

Here is the agreement:

Israeli-Palestinian Interim Agreement on the West Bank and the Gaza Strip

Annex I:
Protocol Concerning Redeployment and Security Arrangements
2. Area A
a. The Council will, upon completion of the redeployment of Israeli military forces it each district, as set out in Appendix 1 to this Annex, assume the powers and responsibilities for internal security and public order in Area A in that district.

b. Jewish Holy Sites

(1) The following provisions will apply with respect to the security arrangements in Jewish holy sites in Area A which are listed in Appendix 4 to this Annex:

(a) While the protection of these sites, as well as of persons visiting them, will be under the responsibility of the Palestinian Police, a JMU shall function in the vicinity of, and on the access routes to, each such site, as directed by the relevant DCO.

(b) The functions of each such JMU shall be as follows:

(i) to ensure free, unimpeded and secure access to the relevant Jewish holy site; and

(ii) to ensure the peaceful use of such site, to prevent any potential instances of disorder and to respond to any incident.

(c) Given the Jewish religious nature of such sites, Israeli plainclothes guards may be present inside such sites.

(2) The present situation and the existing religious practices shall be preserved.

Appendix 4
Jewish Holy Sites
Pursuant to Article V of this Annex the Jewish Holy Sites are as follows:

1. Joseph's Tomb (Nablus)

Here is the "worth":-

Israeli killed, five wounded in shooting near Nablus

30-year-old killed, five injured as cars were attacked en route to Joseph's Tomb in the West Bank; driver of attacked car sped to nearest army base.

One person, 30, was killed and five others were severely injured in a shooting attack in the West Bank on Sunday.  The group of Breslev hassids was shot at in their car as they were entering the city of Nablus en route to Joseph's Tomb. The driver drove to the nearest army base where they were tended to. One passenger, who sustained wounds to his upper body, could not be revived and died Sunday morning. A 20-year-old and a 17-year-old were taken to Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson in Petah Tikva with moderate injuries, and three more were treated on the army base for minor wounds.

Oh, and who did the shooting?

Palestinian Authority Police Kill Israeli near Joseph's Tomb

Palestinian Authority police Sunday morning shot and killed one Israeli and wounded three others when they tried to pray at Joseph's Tomb (Kever Yosef) around 6 a.m. Sunday (11 p.m. Saturday night EDT). Names are not yet released...The IDF hurriedly issued a statement that the trip to Kever Yosef was not coordinated with Israeli security forces....The Breslov group was known to Palestinian Authority authorities as people who frequently prayed at Kever Yosef without any other intentions, according to Gershon Mesika, chairman of the Shomron (Samaria) Regional Council. He called the shooting attack a “massacre at close range.

National Union Knesset Member Dr. Michael Ben-Ari indirectly blamed the American government for having “trained and armed the enemy army that is called the ‘Palestinian Authority police’ and is directly responsible for the murder at Kever Yosef.”  He called on the Israeli government to restore the Od Yosef Chai Yeshiva to Kever Yosef and to confiscate weapons from the Palestinian Authority

And this

The Palestinian Authority was investigating the incident and has detained several of its security officers for questioning.

Were those US-trained armed militants that did the shooting?


The murdered Jew is Ben-Yosef, the son of Noam Livnat, nephew of Minister of Culture & Sport Limor Livnat and grandson of my good friends Shulamit and Uzi-Azriel Livnat.  And grandson of Professor Arnold Blumberg, author of "Zion Before Zionism".

and he was the father of four.

Let's not forget the US warning of two years ago.  And this assessment.

Oslo also stipulated that the settlement in Hebron would be cleared of settlers. You can't pick and choose Oslo. Not if you want to come across as reasonable. But as a fruitcake, go ahead.

The fruitcake, Anonymous, is you and anyone else who believes in the worth of peace treaties with Muslims.
