Last week this hit the news, did not make a lot of noise, and then backfired as people said it was misinterpreted and not surprisingly went back to its original form. Confused? of course. Last week the PLO (the guys who ran the Palestinian government) declared that the future Palestinian state will not want to have Jews as citizens, this was not an inflammatory remark but rather a common sense kind of thing to the ambassador, since he said “both religions” are immersed in a battle for the last hundred years maybe it makes perfect sense to just separate the two and start by kicking out any Jews from the Palestinian state.
One little embarrassing fact is that this is racism, from the same people who accuse Israel of being an Apartheid state (which is untrue, all Israeli citizens have full and equal rights). To be kicked out of a country because of your religion is not something the U.S. (who’s Palestinian ambassador thought it would be so intelligent to make a remark about the Jews) or Europe’s countries like to hear.
To be kind to the Palestinians we should mention that fanatical Jews that live in the West bank and elsewhere in Israel would probably say the same thing about Israel and its Muslims, however these are only a couple of thousands of people in Israel, compared to the vast majority of the Palestinian people, who continuously move back in time towards Islamization.
