Yet people still delude themselves into believing that supporting the Palestinian jihad against Israel is to support justice and human right. Islamic Tolerance Alert from the oppressed “Palestinians”: “Abbas vows: No room for Israelis in Palestinian state,” by Khaled Abu Toameh in the Jerusalem Post, December 25 (thanks to Tanguy Veys):
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas announced on Saturday that when a Palestinian state is established, it will have no Israelis in it.
“We have frankly said, and always will say: If there is an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital, we won’t agree to the presence of one Israeli in it,” Abbas told reporters in Ramallah.
He was commenting on unconfirmed reports suggesting that the PA leadership might agree to the presence of the IDF in the West Bank after the establishment of a Palestinian state.
“We are ready to have peace on the basis of international legitimacy and the road map, which we have accepted, as well as the Arab Peace Initiative,” Abbas said. “But when a Palestinian state is established, it would have no Israeli presence in it.”
The PA president criticized Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and accused him of placing obstacles on the road to peace.
“He who prefers settlements over peace is responsible for the obstacles to peace,” he added.
“If he really was interested in peace, he would have at least preferred peace to settlements.”…
Abbas hailed Bolivia, Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil and Ecuador, which have recognized a Palestinian state with the 1967 borders. He said that the Palestinians were now hoping that other countries, especially the EU, Russia, Canada, the US and Japan, would follow suit and declare their recognition of a Palestinian state.
“The whole world is now with us,” Abbas said. “These countries have recognized us because they love peace and want to support peace.”
Yes, the world has indeed gone mad.
