But while singing the praises of Israeli security coordination with the Palestinian Authority, Yoram Cohen tells the cabinet that Israeli operations are still responsible for thwarting the majority of attacks.18:03 04.05.16 | 0 comments
If the Arabs had won in 1948, with the Jews pushed into the sea -- the ones who hadn't been murdered in the defeat that is -- where would the sacred capitol and land of the "Palestinian nation" have been? Hashemite Jordan seized Jerusalem and the West Bank. Egypt seized Gaza and would have held the areas of the Negev it had seized. Syria would have held the Galilee. The "Palestinian nation" never protested Jordan's annexation of East Jerusalem or the West Bank and even accepted Jordanian citizenship. As late as 1988, the PLO Charter recognized Jordanian sovereignty over the areas Palestinians today insist are absolutely sacred for their nation. So could it be that without the creation of Israel, there' be no "Palestinian nation"? And could it also be that the real foundation of the "Palestinian nation" simply is: "We don't care who rules here, as long as it's an Arab regime and as long as the Jews are out."?
