Vice President Joe Biden says the Palestinians deserve a state. He has traveled to the Mideast to press the Israelis to surrender more territory more quickly to what has been termed the Palestinian Authority. The Obama administration is giving $900 million of our money to the Mahmoud Abbas regime on the West Bank of the Jordan River, supposedly for "humanitarian" causes.
This administration went out of its way to avoid being seen as "meddling" with Iran, but it shows no such restraint with Israel. Meanwhile, the Palestinians go on naming schools for suicide bombers and coaching their children to emulate these bombers. But somehow they are viewed as "partners" in the mythical peace process.
The Obama administration's position is that Israelis should withdraw from the West Bank and leave the entire regions of Judea and Samaria to the Palestinians -- all in the interest of a comprehensive Mideast peace settlement. What happened when Israel did evacuate from Gaza? Hamas promptly took over.
Have President Obama, Vice President Biden or Secretary Clinton ever stopped to ask why is it in the interest of the U.S. to foster a Judenrein on the West Bank? That terrible word -- which comes to us from the time of the Holocaust -- means a region cleared of Jews. We need to understand that Jews have lived in this region since biblical times. If Jews have no right to live in Judea and Samaria, why do they have a right to live in Tel Aviv, which was founded only in the early 20th century?

Are we to believe the two are compatible and both as noble as the other?
Thank God we do not have schools named Lee Harvey Oswald, here...Sirhan, Sirhan Elementary. John Wilkes Booth Junior College. If anyone is to be eliminated, it should be the so-called Palestinians...the world would sleep better.
Is it true that Israel is the only Middle Eastern country where Palestinians get to vote?
I shake my head and wonder why we attempt to placate, if not outright champion the intollerant.
A slight understatement.....They "promptly and with extreme violence took over"..............
However we do have many such places named for Robert E. Lee, Nathan Bedford Forrest, Stonewall Jackson, et al...........
It just sounds like doublespeak... happens to people who never have a cogent thought about anything.
Where the hell is Stonewall Jackson College?
As Menachem Begin once said, "One man's hero is another man's terrorist."
