Palestinians Condemn Romney For Suggesting They Aren’t Interested In Peace


In other words, they’re angry that Romney spoke the inconvenient truth

By The Associated Press and Reuters – ” The Palestinian Authority has denounced remarks by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who told donors that Palestinians ‘have no interest’ in peace with Israel.

According to comments captured on newly released video of his private remarks to wealthy donors, Romney said Palestinians are ‘committed to the destruction and elimination of Israel’ and that the prospects for a two-state solution to Mideast peace were dim. He also suggested that efforts at Mideast peace under his administration would languish.

Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said Romney was wrong to accuse them of not seeking peace.

‘No one stands to gain more from peace with Israel than Palestinians and no one stands to lose more in the absence of peace than Palestinians,’ Erekat told Reuters. ‘Only those who want to maintain the Israeli occupation will claim the Palestinians are not interested in peace.

Nabil Abu Rdeneh, a spokesman for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, said: ‘We are ready for peace that is based on the 1967 borders, a two-state solution and stopping settlement activities. Thus, it is not true that we are not ready for peace, but rather, it is the Israeli side that is not ready for peace.'” Read more.

Flashback: Palestinian Authority and Hamas Both Agree (Again): They Will Never Recognize Israel as a Jewish State – “Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said on Sunday that the PA will not meet Israel’s demand that it recognize Israel as the Jewish State, Kol Yisrael radio reported. According to the report, Abbas explained this statement using the reasoning that once that the PA agrees to this requirement, there would be no value to the million and a half PA Arabs living in Israel, and no refugee would be allowed to come back to Israel, in keeping with the PA demand that Israel allow millions of Arab refugees to return to their old homes in Israeli cities as part of a future agreement.” Read more.

Flashback: Palestinian Authority Religious Official Publicly Calls for Genocide of Jews as a Religious Islamic Goal – “The principal Palestinian Authority’s religious leader, the Mufti Muhammad Hussein, presented last week the killing of Jews by Muslims as a religious Islamic goal. Hussein made the comments at an event celebrating the 47th anniversary of the founding of the Fatah movement, which is headed by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. He cited the Hadith (Islamic tradition attributed to Muhammad) saying that ‘the Hour [of Resurrection] will not come until you fight the Jews. The Jew will hide behind stones or trees. Then the stones or trees will call: ‘Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.’” Read more.

Flashback: Gaza and the West Bank: 31 Opportunities for Statehood Squandered in Favor of Genocide – “There is an eerie déjà vu about an unmistakable and oft-repeated process in the Arab–Israel conflict. The process started in 1937 and has repeated itself with minor variations many times over the subsequent 74 years. The process is as follows: Arabs go to war with Israel, promising Israel’s destruction and the annihilation of its Jews. Israel wins the war and offers peace. Arab leaders reject Israel’s peace offer, renew their promises of destruction and annihilation; and after a while they go to war again, and lose again, and Israel again offers peace. Repeat this process 31 times and you have the history of the Arab-Israel conflict in a nutshell.” Read more.
