In an interview with a Lebanese newspaper, the Palestinian Ambassador to Lebanon, Abdullah Abdullah, said Palestinian refugees would not necessarily become citizens of any new Palestinian State. “They are Palestinians, that’s their identity. But … they are not automatically citizens. Even Palestinian refugees who are living in [refugee camps] inside the [then-Palestinian] state are still refugees. They will not be considered citizens.” He added that the new state would “absolutely not” issue Palestinian passports to refugees, lest they be understood to be citizens of Palestine. “When we have a state accepted as a member of the United Nations, this is not the end of the conflict. This is not a solution to the conflict. This is only a new framework that will change the rules of the game.”In other words, we have a direct admission by a high-ranking Palestinian-Arab diplomat that the local Arab leadership absolutely refuses, even if given a state carved out of the Jewish ancestral home, to end the long Arab war against the Jews of the Middle East.
If that is the case, where is our motivation for making the painful sacrifices necessary to ushering in whatever little corrupt, terrorist statelet that the "Palestinians" allegedly want?
If Palestinian-Arab hatred for Jews is so never-ending and so entrenched within their culture and if they have no intention of coming to peace with the Jews, why should we make any concessions at all?
What is the point? Land for peace might make some sense if the Arabs actually want peace, but that is not what they want. Mr. Abdullah is telling us this in a very direct fashion. This means that the Jews should have zero motivation for negotiating an Arab state on Jewish land. It also means that Palestinian-Arab refugees, even those within any future state of "Palestine," will remain refugees without citizenship within their own country.
So, just who benefits from yet another Arab state in the Middle East? The Jews obviously do not benefit by giving away our historical homeland and neither do the Palestinian-Arab refugees, who will not see the benefits of citizenship within such a state.
