Dr Carlebach nailed it:
“They are all emotion, unbalanced, instantaneous, senseless. It is always the lunatic that speaks from their throat.Â You can talk ‘business’ with everyone, and even with the devil. But not with Allah… ”
A Pal- ‘Authority deputy minister’ has accused Israel of having worse prison conditions than “the Auschwitzes of the Nazis.” Ziad Abu Ein belittled the Holocaust by using the term “the Auschwitzes” three times in 2 sentences during his PA TV interview. You gotta read it to believe it,
Even a Sowdi camel would choke on this cud.
We need to stop feeding these morons, they are amongst the fattest in the world. Â See here: Â check this. 8 and 3
U.S. Number One Enemy!
Remember, Fatah is supposed to be the moderate group with which the U.S. can negotiate. “‘US is #1 Palestinian enemy as it backs Israeli oppression,'” by Khaled Abu Toameh for theÂ Jerusalem Post, October 9 (thanks toÂ The Religion of Peace):
The US is the number one enemy of the PalestiniansÂ because it supports Israeli “oppression” against the Palestinians, Tawfik Tirawi, a senior member of the Fatah Central Committee, said on Sunday.Tirawi, former commander of the Palestinian Authority’s General Intelligence Force in the West Bank, also said thatÂ Fatah has not abandoned the armed struggle option against Israel.
“Fatah hasn’t thrown the rifle aside,” Tirawi told thousands of university students during a rally in Hebron.
Tirawi’s anti-US remarks came only days afterÂ a Palestinian protester tossed a shoe at US diplomats who arrived in Ramallah to attend a cultural event.
The Palestinians were protesting against US President Barack Obama’s refusal to back the PA’s statehood bid at the UN and US threats to cut off financial aid to the PA.
Tirawi also criticized the PA leadership for refusing to allow Palestine TV to use the term “Israeli enemy” in its broadcasts.
“Those who prevent the use of the term ‘Israeli enemy’ are acting in violation of national awareness and the principles of people under occupation,” he argued. “They must go away.”…
Â They don’t want any state at all. All they want is to destroy Israel:
“… under the accepted principles of international law going back to the Montevideo Convention of 1933, there are four prerequisites for statehood: a permanent population; defined territory; effective government; and a capacity to enter into relations with other states.”
The contradictions on the Palestinian Authority’s treatment of its “permanent population” are particularly glaring, and revealing of its intentions. The PA wants UN recognition to leapfrog them over those issues, imposing a resolution on theÂ PA’s terms. More onÂ this story. “Foreign Ministry issues legal arguments against PA UN bid,” from theÂ Jerusalem Post, October 11:
With Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas circling the globe drumming up support from UN Security Council countries for his statehood bid, the Foreign Ministry circulated a document to its representatives abroad this week, spelling out legal arguments against the move.
The document, written by the Foreign Ministry’s legal department at the behest of Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, is to serve as a basis for Israel’s envoys in their continued efforts to poke holes into the Palestinians’ argument that they are ready for statehood.
Abbas is currently in Colombia, and on his way to Portugal, to lobby those countries to support his bid in the Security Council.
“The Palestinian request for membership in the United Nations, which was submitted to the Secretary-General on September 23, 2011, implies that a Palestinian state already, somehow, exists,” read the document, obtained by The Jerusalem Post.
“The request asked to build upon this supposedly existing status to request membership in the United Nations. However, based on both traditional and contemporary legal and tangible tests, it is clear that while one day the Palestinian state could come into existence, today the Palestinian entity has not achieved the status of statehood.”
The five-page paper states that under the accepted principles of international law going back to the Montevideo Convention of 1933, there are four prerequisites for statehood: a permanent population; defined territory; effective government; and a capacity to enter into relations with other states.
Regarding its permanent population, the paper stated that the Palestinians have “been ambiguous about which group of people would constitute the permanent population of their state.”
“The Palestinians seem to be seeking to establish a new state, and at the same time preserve the status of Palestinians living in the diaspora as so-called ‘refugees,’” the document continued.
“As part of this effort, they have presented contradictory positions, wanting to continue to represent all Palestinians on refugee-related claims, but,Â at the same time, stating that they do not intend to grant citizenship to members of the Palestinian diaspora.”
According to the document,Â this is an “internal contradiction” that necessarily leads to ambiguity on the population issue since a state can only represent the claims of its own citizens.
The document cited a report in Lebanon’s Daily Star newspaper in which Abdullah Abdullah, the Palestinian ambassador to Lebanon, said the future Palestinian state would not be issuing Palestinian passports to refugees â€“ even refugees living in the West Bank and Gaza.
As to the prerequisite of effective government, the document said it would be difficult to argue that the Palestinians presently meet the most basic test of effective governmental control of the territories they are claiming within their state.
“Hamas continues to exercise full control of the Gaza Strip,” the document read. “Despite the signing by Fatah and Hamas of a so-called ‘Reconciliation Agreement’ in May 2011, nothing has changed in practice.
Palestinian Authority leadership, which submitted the UN request for membership, is completely excluded from responsibility in Gaza and retains no control in Gaza.”
One glaring example of this lack of effective control is that Abbas himself has been unable to visit Gaza since Hamas seized control there in 2007…..
