PLO Flag to Fly in Washington D.C.
Israel National News ^ | 07/23/10 | INN Staff

Posted on 07/23/2010 10:34:31 AM PDT by Ooh-Ah

The United States State Department has announced to the Palestinian Authority/Palestinian Liberation Organization Mission representative in the United States that its status will be upgraded from a 'bureau' to that of a "general delegation' and that this change will allow the office in which the representation is situated to fly the PLO, now also the Palestine Authority, flag at its entrance.

The upgrading, besides allowing the flag to be flown, also grants certan privileges to the delegation staff, such as diplomatic immunity, although it is not equal to embassy status.

The PLO's chief representative in the United States, Maen Areikat, said that this step makes the PLO's status in the United States equivalent to its status in Canada and many western European countries.

Imagine the possibilities of a terrorist organization that enjoys diplomatic immunity, e.g. the PLO. Imagine what you could smuggle into this country in diplomatic bags, which means stuff that could blow up, or stuff that could make you sick, or other kinds of interesting stuff.

So when car bombs start going off in American cities we'll have no one to arrest and prosecute.

78% of (liberal) American Jews voted for this along with 50+% of CINO catholics, racists like Shirley Sherrod and other idiots.

Keep watching TV sheep - it helps to support the regime including Fox/Saudia News.

Oh now you’re just trying to make me pull my hair out. I could have lived my whole life without knowing about this vile and truly despicable move. What am I going to do, laugh or cry?

If this administration were a movie, I’d have walked out in the first five minutes. It seems like I’m stuck in the theater, though. I guess I’ll just have to pray the projector malfunctions. ;)

What do you think CodePink could accomplish given diplomatic immunity? Just how far could this immunity extend? Maybe Bill and Bernadette could actually get away with more bombings? I have seen insanity before but this is beyond the imagination.

...

Diplomatic sources in Jerusalem claimed that the step was taken to strengthen Abu Maazen and try to get him to agree to direct talks with Israel. However, they expressed dissapointment that the White House did not make ceasing the PA’s anti Israel incitement a condition for the status upgrade.
...

Good heavens!

Obama is ANTI ISRAEL, so why would Obama make it a condition for anything?

I am now 100% convinced that Al Queda, Hezbollah and Hamas was a creation of the Communists to destroy Western Civilization and the Judeo/Christian religion.

Assuming this is true and they can do it, what happens when the only two ideologies left on the planet is Communism and Islam?

It means we can catch them in the act of setting a car bomb at the Capitol and can only declare them Persona Non Grata and make them leave the country. And then they can come back in that Diplomatic Pouch.

My concern is not so much "setting" the bomb, but detonating it. And not so much at the Capitol, but on Main Street [Your Town] USA.

Yep indeed it has invaded...and with outstretched arms from this administration...

When a country turns it’s back to God...it will always be invaded one way or another by “evil doers” History testifies to this and now the USA is no longer immune.

I have no doubt our country is being judged by God as we see this infiltration happening at every border....
