Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says Palestinians deserve to live better than they do and be "free of the humiliation of occupation" in a state of their own.
"I promise you my personal commitment to that goal," Rice said at a dinner marking the third anniversary of the American Task Force on Palestine.
"There could be no greater legacy for America," Rice told the group, which describes itself as nonpartisan and supportive of a Palestinian state living side by side with Israel.
"The Palestinian people deserve a better life ... free of the humiliation of occupation," she said

File under: Why do Jews vote for Democrats when Republicans (Particularly Republicans named Bush) are Israel's best friend ever.
I guess all those PLO hijackings and suicide bombings finally got around to paying dividends in both political parties.
Get real. Israel should either declare annexation of the territory or work toward separation and an independent state for the territory it doesn't want to annex.
There's nothing anti-Israel in the statement at all.
The only solution to the Palestinian squatter problem is the "T-word."
Bush Doctrine, R.I.P.
And now that the pali's don't have the Israli's to shoot at, they're shooting at each other. That's a good thing!
You cannot feed spite and we-are-a-victim-of-others social ethos and expect peace -- what you get is bitter chaos and strive.
typo - "Chaos and Strife"
Does this Terror apologist look familiar? He is always on TV..
He is Hussein Ibish, a Senior Fellow at the American Task Force on Palestine.
Just every day people loving Arabs.
The comment his father made, led directly to attacks on Jews in the US. Rice's remark will embolden every Jew hater from here to Indonesia. It is now a much more dangerous world because of her for all Jews.
Hasn't this been the policy of both the U.S. and Israel?
"The Palestinian people deserve a better life ... free of the humiliation of occupation," she said"
Rice is right.
They would already have this, were it not for the greed and perfidy of their leaders and allies.
Tha Palestinians deserve a lot of things. A State isn't one of them.
***"Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says Palestinians deserve to live better than they do and be 'free of the humiliation of occupation" in a state of their own.'"***
I would like to ask Dr, Rice just what the p[alestinians have done to deserve to be free of humiliation and to live better.
Was it the kidnappings? The missiles across the border at innocent civilians. The blown up busses?,Maybe it was the attacks on Christians. Maybe it was the looting in gaza. Just wondering what it was that makes them deserve a better life.
I think Dr. Rice just stepped in the dog dirt.
"If we were to abandon that country before the Iraqis can defend their young democracy, the terrorists would take control of Iraq and establish a new safe haven from which to launch new attacks on America."
Change Iraqis to "Palestinians". Change America to Israel.
Didn't they vote for Hamas. Don't they support terror. Haven't they already proved that they would do just that, attack Israel at every opportunity?
He added: "We can't tolerate a new terrorist state in the heart of the Middle East"
Hell, I gave up on the Bush Administration quite some time ago. And I never, for the life of me, understood why people here once wanted Rice to run for president in '08.
They are "free of the humiliation of occupation" in Gaza.
