REALITY CHECK

Intelligent people figured this out a long time ago so I have four words for those deluded people who ignorantly prattle on about so-called “two-state solutions” in the Middle East.  Wake the hell up:

Palestinian refugees will not become citizens of a new Palestinian state, according to Palestine’s ambassador to Lebanon.

From behind a desk topped by a miniature model of Palestine’s hoped-for blue United Nations chair, Ambassador Abdullah Abdullah spoke to The Daily Star Wednesday about Palestine’s upcoming bid for U.N. statehood.

The ambassador unequivocally says that Palestinian refugees would not become citizens of the sought for U.N.-recognized Palestinian state, an issue that has been much discussed. “They are Palestinians, that’s their identity,” he says. “But … they are not automatically citizens.”

This would not only apply to refugees in countries such as Lebanon, Egypt, Syria and Jordan or the other 132 countries where Abdullah says Palestinians reside. Abdullah said that “even Palestinian refugees who are living in [refugee camps] inside the [Palestinian] state, they are still refugees. They will not be considered citizens.”

Abdullah said that the new Palestinian state would “absolutely not” be issuing Palestinian passports to refugees.

Money quote.

The right of return that Abdullah says is to be negotiated would not only apply to those Palestinians whose origins are within the 1967 borders of the state, he adds. “The state is the 1967 borders, but the refugees are not only from the 1967 borders. The refugees are from all over 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.”

There is no “two-state solution” in the eyes of the Palestinian leadership. As they have been saying since the 1920s, they will tolerate Jews in the Holy Land only so long as they are a submissive small minority. They don’t mind making permanent victims of millions of their own in order to drive out the Jews. Neither Jews nor “refugee” Palestinians are people to them. They are pawns.

They don’t mind making permanent victims of millions of their own in order to drive out the Jews.

And most likely the refugees will refuse to see what is being done to them and play their role.

These people are psychos.

Is there any way we could get Seroquel into their water supply?

The Palestinian refugees have just been convenient propaganda tools, that’s all. What is so surprising about that sort of duplicity?

The stupid liberal/progressives in this country will just lap all this up and swallow it whole, smiling fatuously all the while.

The Palestinian logo at the UN this week suggests exactly that, LaVallette. One state of Palestine, no Israel.

Love One Another is just not in the Moslem lexicon.

The Moslem behavioral norm or standard is Bomb One Another.

There’s only every been one final solution to the Palestine problem.

The question is whether the Army imposes it with troops on the ground, or the air force with Dolphins & Jericho.

The strategic option will be far quicker, save many Israeli lives, and would include solutions to Iran and Iraq into the bargain. But the US will probably force Israel in to doing it the hard way.
