Hassan Abdel Rahman, the Palestinian representative in Washington, said he had not heard about Jackson's overture, but added Jackson certainly "has plenty of phone numbers" of Palestinians in the region.

I'm not a bit surprised.

No thanks. We'd end up paying reparations to suicide bombers families and Israeli businesses would be hoodwinked into hiring PLO employees in executive positions.

Is Shakedown worth reading? I've got a pile of books to get through but I've been considering reading that one.

I wonder what Jesse thinks of the thousands of black Jews that Israel rescued from Africa and who are being killed alongside other Jews?

I thought the headline Rev. Jackson Offers to Mediate Israeli-Palestinian Conflict was the lead-in to a joke.

Jackson is a joke, isn't he?

This race-baiting hustler should never ever be permitted to think he can conduct foreign policy or its equivalent for the United States of America.

For once in this con artist's life, he should start addressing the pathologies of his own ethnic group, starting with such cultural indicators as illegitimate birth rates and crime rates, though we all know he doesn't practice what he preaches in either area.
