Why do we send these asshat Pali terrorists millions (dozens if not hundreds of millions?) of dollars each year?

But everyone is OK with that in The Obama/Clinton administration.

Palestinian terrorists need a homeland, but not them damn Jews.

I don’t understand what this means. To recognize a foreign state another either establishes an embassy and sends an ambassador and receives their ambassador or not. Is Abbas saying he wouldn’t do that or is this just a political con for the consumption of his own people?

With the exception of Jews in Israel, the US Dept of State thinks that "ethnic cleansing" and genocide are bad things in general.

Read your history. These bastards want genocide and have not changed their tune in about 100 years. Arabs are far worse than the Nazis. The League of Nations tried to negotiate peace and then the Bloody English issued The Balfour Declaration (1917) but broke their word. After WW II the Brits broke their agreements repeatedly in regard to Israel.

Israel was created by a very tight vote of the United Nations amid lying, back stabbing international politics, blatant intimidation and perfidious posturing by many countries including the United States, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece and England.

Israel has been at war basically since 1948. The Arabs lie about everything. Their Muslim faith requires them to lie, cheat, steal and break agreements. So be it.

Was that a statement or rhetorical ?

Ok then how about we just rename it? Maybe something along the line of the Anti-Islam State.

Jews don’t recognize Jesus.
Protestants don’t recognize the Pope.
Muslims don’t recognize each other at the gay bar.

Hardly surprising, since Abbas is Arafat's "disciple." Like Arafat, he's belligerent when he speaks in Arabic to his Pali "flock," but puts up a facade of sophistication when he speaks to the West in English. And just like Arafat, he means what he says in Arabic, not what he says in English.

Yet Hillary Clinton and George Mitchell will meet again with him to talk "peace" next week.

Of course it was rhetorical and satirical.

The Obama morons actually seem to think that Hamas and Hezbollah need a homeland, but not Israel.

Same old muslim bait and switch, I truly feel sorry for the decent muslim folks who have not yet seen their religion is based on lies, they grew up believing in it, their communities are steeped in it, but a hard choice must be made by all of earth, traditions or truth, we all face that reality daily..The religion of Islam as a whole does not promote anything but slavery to a false god..very sad..
