A place where no Jews can live

In a speech yesterday commemorating the 42nd anniversary of the founding of his Fatah party, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas called on Palestinian factions to put an end to weeks of infighting and instead "raise rifles against the Israeli occupation."

"Shooting at your brother is forbidden. Raising rifles against the occupation is our legitimate right, but raising guns against each other is forbidden. We should put our internal fighting aside and raise our rifles only against the Israeli occupation," said Abbas in a speech in Ramallah attended by WND.

The worst of this, folks, is that Abbas' call to arms was not reported by most major media outlets featuring articles on the Palestinian predator's speech.

Fatah was founded in 1964 with Arafat; unless causality has no meaning, the Muslim resistance to Israel was born with no reference to 1967 but, rather, with Israel's birth in 1948 and, indeed, with the return of Jews in the land in the 19th century, keeping in mind that Jews had never left the land entirely in their 5000+ year old history.

The fact remains that Israel has every reason not to trust Hamas, Fatah, Hezbollah, nor Abbas; all have vowed the destruction of Israel in their charter documents and when speaking in Arabic although sometimes denying it in English.

There is no law on earth that requires the Jewish people to accept the revision of their history nor their own demise merely because Muslims say we should.

It is outrageous in the extreme that the world would accept a scheme that would permit Arabs to have an ethnically cleansed geographical region where no Jews can live.
