Sari Nusseibeh has done it again. In an article titled “Why Israel Can’t be a ‘Jewish State,'” published on the Jewish New Year of all dates, the supposedly moderate president of al-Quds University goes to great lengths to explain why Jews, unlike any other nation on earth, are undeserving of statehood.
“[T]he idea of a ‘Jewish State’ is logically and morally problematic because of its legal, religious, historical and social implications,” he wrote. “The implications of this term therefore need to be spelled out, and we are sure that once they are, most people – and most Israeli citizens, we trust – will not accept these implications.”
Not that this should have come as a surprise. For decades, Nusseibeh has tirelessly advanced the “one-state solution” – a euphemistic formula that proposes the replacement of Israel by a country, theoretically comprising the whole of historic Palestine, in which Jews will be reduced to the status of a permanent minority.

http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/ Christie has endorsed Romney and Perry has turned out not to be as far to the right as people wanted to believe. Cain leads until the next slip. Palin will be courted by the front-runners and she will likely step forward to campaign for one of them. The big money is still on Romney […]
WHAT A WORLD…THIS LITTLE WORM MUST HAVE SOMETHING THAT MAKES THE LADIES COO…HE ONCE WOOED CAMPBELL BROWN THE CNN “JOURNALIST” WHO MARRIED DAN SENOR A REALLY FINE MAN AND NAMED ADVISER TO MITT ROMNEY. YESTERDAY ON THE FOX “FIVE” DANA PERRINO GUSHED ABOUT HOW SHE MET HIM AND HE IS CHARMING AND OPEN AND HOSPITABLE….AND HERE HE IS IN HIS OWN WORDS PRAISING HAMAS….REMEMBER THE OLD SAW…LIVE BY THE SWORD AND DIE BY THE SWORD…..
But al-Jubeir’s denunciations of terrorism were tempered by his refusal to publicly condemn the organization Hamas. For instance, when a reporter, referring to a suicide bombing that had occurred in Jerusalem a few days earlier, asked al-Jubeir whether he was “prepared to condemn Hamas” for carrying out such an “act of terrorism,” al-Jubeir replied:
“We condemn terrorism in all its forms and shapes. Any time you kill innocent people, it’s condemnable, whether it’s perpetrated by one side or the other. Our objective is to move beyond this violence and towards a situation where people can lead normal lives…. [However] I think that the prime minister of Israel has to think very seriously about his policies.”
In al-Jubeir’s view, Israel’s recent assassination attempt of a Hamas leader had essentially put Hamas in a position where it had no choice but to respond with violence.
While denying that the Saudi government funded Hamas directly, al-Jubeir acknowledged that some Saudi money might occasionally have found its way indirectly to the coffers of Hamas’ “political wing.” Moreover, al-Jubeir defended the Saudi practice of providing aid to the families of dead Palestinian suicide bombers, explaining that those families should not be punished for the misdeeds of their relatives.

http://politicalmavens.com/ Homeless people are routinely swept off the streets for disobeying city laws against loitering. If they borrowed some signs from the squatters of Zucotti Park and claimed to be protesting some inequality, they might earn the same leniency from our mayor to live on the street for an indefinite period of time. Just hold […]
