    In 1977, Zuheir Muhsein gave an interview with the Dutch newspaper "Trouw", in which he said, “The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct Palestinian people to oppose Zionism. “For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.” Yasser Arafat is quoted in his authorized biography as saying, "If there is any such thing as a "Palestinian people", it is I, Yasser Arafat, who created it." These statements, from two people who helped formulate this tactic, bear out the truth of Gingrich's comment--and of course the Palestinian officials are going to object, it exposes their duplicity, and the truth hurts.
