Betrayed.

Via Times of Israel:

The Palestinians criticized Thursday the US Democratic Party’s decision a day earlierto return language to their party platform that affirmed Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Nabil Abu Rdeneh, an aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, said the Democrat’s decision might just be “election propaganda.” He said a failure to recognize the Palestinian claim to East Jerusalem will “destroy the peace process” and lead to “endless war.”

On Wednesday, the Democratic Party reinstated language into its platform affirming Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, after it came under fire for removing it.

According to campaign officials for President Barack Obama, the re-addition of the statement was a result of intervention by the US president.

The language is at odds with US policy calling for the status of Jerusalem to be resolved through negotiations.

Palestinians Blast Democrats For Affirming Jerusalem As Capital of Israel…

But the 'Rats at the convention voted it down by voice vote three times. Chairman Villaraigosa just ignored the vote the last time and declared it passed, following his teleprompter's orders.

This from a mob of people whose founding unchanged founding document calls for the destruction of the nation of Israel along with the murder of all Jews.

Ha! Never mind, Palistinians, Obama will “evolve” on that topic just as he “evolved” on homosexual marriage.

Thanks NYer.

No it didn't.That, my friends, is exactly what the "restored" platform sez -- that Jerusalem isn't the capital because final status negotiations haven't happened yet. What a bunch of festering morons are in the media.

Correct! They only magically appeared after 1948 when Israel was formed.

The reality is the so-called "palestinians" are nothing more than the arab dreg's that were kicked out of Egypt and then Jordan. These were the same "palestinians" that tried killing the King of Jordan who at the time was a friend to the United States.

"palestinians" my ass.
