Brief Notes: Obama Validates Palestinian Racism Against Jews


{Cross-Posted at Pro-Israel Bay Bloggers}

Why is Barack Obama validating Palestinian racism? That has to be one of the fundamental questions going forward. Every time that Barack Obama (or for that matter representatives of the EU or run-of-the-mill western “progressives”) complain about Jews building housing for themselves in what Jordan dubbed “the west bank” they are validating Palestinian racism against us.

Mahmoud Abbas claims that he cannot accept a Palestinian state in peace next to the Jewish one so long as Jews continue to build housing for themselves in Judea.


If Israel can have Christian and Muslim citizens, why cannot the Palestinian Authority accept the idea that any future state of Palestine will also have Jewish citizens? The reason, of course, is because the Palestinian Authority has no intention whatsoever in ending the Jihad against the Jews of the Middle East and they do not want a state for themselves in peace next to Israel.

If that is what the Palestinians wanted they could have had that long ago.

And that, today, is my brief note.



  1. If you are following the current talks in Jordan it is pretty obvious who is doing the stalling.

    "For example, I am told by a Western diplomat working for the Quartet
    that when the Israeli delegation arrived for a meeting last weekend in
    Amman, the Jordanian capital, to present their latest security
    proposals, Mr Erekat simply refused to enter the room."


    Johnathan Tobin blames Obama:
    "By stating that a Middle East peace deal should be negotiated on the
    basis of the 1967 lines, Obama strengthened the Palestinians’ belief
    that their demands for a complete Israeli retreat and the eviction of
    every Jew living in the West Bank and parts of Jerusalem had America’s
    tacit backing. Though Obama quickly followed up with a reassurance that
    he backed the idea of territorial swaps that would allow Israel to try
    to keep some settlements, the Palestinians viewed that as
    inconsequential, as the president had buttressed their position that a
    return to the status quo of June 4, 1967 was an imperative."

    I sure hope that one state has plenty of (0+ / 0-)
    Gharqad trees.

    Done with politics for the night? Have a nice glass of wine with Palate Press: The online wine magazine.

  3. I always thought that David had class and considerable humor.


  4. He can be a hoot! There were a lot of funny guys at dKos at one time. Our pal Paul from San Francisco comes to mind.

  5. Talks?

    Were there talks happening in Jordan?

    Let me guess, the Palestinians are disagreeing to continue because there are Jews in "the west bank," right at this very moment, hammering nails into wood.

    And Barack Obama and the European governments all agree that such hammering is illegal and an impediment to a peaceful resolution.


    Y'know, Doodad, I sometimes wonder just who the occupied is, anyway.
