So, Who is the Arab League?
Arutz Sheva ^ | March 28, 2014 | Eli E. Hertz

The Arab League has officially rejected Israel as a Jewish State. This is nothing new.

Now that it rejected Israel as a Jewish state in its recent meeting, It is illuminating to examine the record of the League of Arab States since the founding of the League in 1945, which is hardly a model for peaceful settlement of disputes in the spirit of the United Nations.

In December 1946, it rejected the first proposed Palestine partition plans, reaffirming "that Palestine is a part of the Arab motherland."

In October 1947, prior to the vote on Resolution 181 - the "Partition Plan" - it reasserted the necessity for military preparations along Arab borders to "defending Palestine."

In February 1948, it approved "a plan for political, military, and economic measures to be taken in response to the Palestine crisis."

“When seven million beleagured Arabs are surrounded by three hundred million screaming Jews, then I’ll feel sympathy for the Arabs!”

Yes, and he came out for Zimmerman. AND he is involved with that group - FIRE - which helps students keep Freedom of Speech/ fight speech codes (and penalties for speaking the Truth) on college campuses.

It was a humorous reversal, like the rest of the `saying’.

“500 Years of German Humor”

“Comprehensive List of Arab Nobel Prize Awardees”
