With polls ahead of Thursday’s mayoral election putting George Galloway on no more than 1%, we could be witnessing the welcome political demise of a malignant racist.19:43 02.05.16 | 0 comments
The Arabs speak in one voice. This debate feeds into the Arab narrative, that Jews are a foreign and illegal element and must be removed. May I remind the distinguished intellectuals that Jews have had a continuous presence in Palestine for 3000 years, that 2 million Arabs live in Israel, that 83% of historic Palestine was deed to Jordan and excluded Jews, but somehow you find it offensive that Jews may want to live in the 17% not given to Jordan. May I remind you that Jews were expelled from East Jerusalem, Hebron and the entire West Bank in 1948. But most importantly, may I remind you that most Israeli's accept a 2 state solution but most Palestinians do not--including the so-called moderate Abbas and that is the real problem. You should focus your energy on getting the Arabs to accept Israel as a state of the Jews and then, and only then, do the actual borders matter. Until then, each side is free to strengthen their position.
