"The United States said Saturday it was disturbed by the Palestinian unity government's claim of a right to resist Israel " God forbid. Anyway, perhaps we should define our attitude more closely. Presumably, distant nations such as Turkey and Morocco would have the right to resist Israel. How about Egypt? Iran? Syria, Jordan, and Lebanon presumably wouldn't have this right. Obviously, no Palestinian state should have any right to resist Israel. That would be tantamount to freedom. Just who is permitted to resist Israel? It's a good question.
