The Obama Administration is trying to quietly kill the move for recognition of a Palestinian state, particularly after the loss of Anthony Weiner’s seat in the House due in part to an angry backlash by Jewish voters over support of Israel. Other countries have said it is time and momentum appeared to be with the Palestinians . . . at least until the Palestine Liberation Organization’s ambassador Maen Areikat to the United States decided to add his views. Areikat described his vision of a beautiful new free and independent state. The key component? No Jews.
When asked if there “there would be no Jews in the West Bank or Gaza,” Areikat explained that “it would be in the best interest of the two people to be separated.” Of course, they are not separated. Israel has 1.3 million Muslims who are Israeli citizens.
