Skip to comments.NBC Relays 'Palestinian Deam' of State to Be 'Free,' Ignores Calls for Removing Jews from Palestine

Andrea Mitchell on Friday and Martin Fletcher filed reports on the NBC Nightly News filling in viewers on the Palestinian Authority upcoming plan to go to the United Nations and seek recognition of statehood or at least U.N. membership as the U.N. convenes this week. Both reports ignored last week's prediction by the Palestinian Authority's envoy to the U.N. that Jews would be removed from a Palestinian state.
While Mitchell conveyed Palestinian complaints that " they've had negotiations before, decades of them, and they have nothing to show for it," and Fletcher similarly relayed that "Their leaders say they have no alternative but to try something new - the 20 years of peace talks have gotten them nowhere," neither report informed viewers that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has been the major obstacle in the resumption of negotiations as he has refused to engage in talks unless the Israeli government halts constructions within the borders of already existing Jewish settlements.
Although Fletcher's report did at least include a clip of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu calling for talks with the Palestinian Authority, the NBC corresondent still seemed to suggest both sides were resisting talks as he recounted that "American negotiators are still trying very hard to get Israel and the Palestinians back to the negotiating table."
And, in spite of the authoritarian nature of the Fatah-run West Bank and the Hamas-run Gaza Strip, Fletcher began his report by relaying the spin that a Palestinian state would be a place for Palestinians to be free:
MARTIN FLETCHER: Palestinians call this their moment of truth. Bethlehem today kicked off a week of West Bank rallies in support of their bid to join the United Nations as a full member state, the Palestinian dream. Flag makers are working around the clock. Fawad Anid

The MSM suppressing news they don’t want us to know about?
Say it isn’t true.
“I shall bless those who bless (Israel) and curse those who curse (Israel).”
God bless Israel and all who protect and defend her.
Liberals love Apartheid states when it’s their kind doing the jailing. Jonah Goldberg is absolutely right. Liberalism = Fascism.
bump for later
I have asked my neighbor repeatedly to give the 5 acre parcel behind his house. I only have 1 acre behind mine. It’s just not fair.
Perhaps the U.N. will recognize that his 5 acres are, in fact, mine? /s
They should feel free to move to any Muzzie nation. It is their duty to welcome them and embrace the multiculturalism of their brothers.
They’ll get them to stop saying they will “remove” Jews from their state. They’ll just drive them out as they manage to do very well. And if a few stubborn ones “accidentally” die, well, that’s too bad.
Israel has bent over backwards, given up much land, suffered intollerable losses, are the recipient of thousands of missile strkes on civilians, without responding in kind, all for promises of peace that to this day never came. And to these people, it’s Israel’s fault.
In Psalm 83, the author prophecies about an event with all the players that just happen to be involved today conspiring to destroy Israel. Is this that event? We’ll know soon enough.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Jordan is Palestine. The Palestinians should actually go there instead of taking land from the small country of Israel. Oh, wait, they got kicked out of Jordan after trying to kill the King. They are nothing but trouble makers and no other Muslim country wants them.
