Arens again echoes a right-wing mantra (no surprise there) when he reminds us of the British Mandate "which gave international recognition to the rights of the Jewish people to Palestine and Jewish settlement on the land. These rights were not limited to the UN partition lines, nor to the 1949 armistice lines. As a matter of fact, they included what is today the Kingdom of Jordan." So now we are to implement dictates that emerged during the days of the British Empire, according to Arens. Let me remind Arens of another British directive: Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli's own assertion that "India is the Jewel of the British Crown". So if Arens and his right-wing supporters will dare to argue that India still belongs to the United Kingdom, then I as a Palestinian will take Arens a bit more seriously. But selective arguments born out of expansionist racist ideologies (as nicely described by him above) are ... just that.
