Via Times of Israel:
The Palestinians criticized Thursday the US Democratic Partys 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 Democrats 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.
There are no Palestinians.
Not to worry Nabil Abu Rdeneh, it’s all a joke.
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.
Oh just tell them to wait. It could all change right back again at any time.
"Just tell the muslims you'll have more flexibiity after your reelection."
Ahhhh, those nasty Palestinians that do not exist have no one now.
As far as I can tell they are the only ones who give a Rats behind....
Ha! Never mind, Palistinians, Obama will “evolve” on that topic just as he “evolved” on homosexual marriage.
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.No it didn't.
[on Thursday] press secretary Patrick Ventrell: "the status of Jerusalem is an issue that should be resolved in final status negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians. So that's longstanding Administration policy and continues to be so... What it means is that the status of Jerusalem must be resolved in final status negotiations."
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.
