“Abbas has responded by saying he might give up power and compel Israel to take on the Palestinians’ affairs”

empty bluff, since he just tried to have palestine declared a sovereign nation. But it does recognize the truth that w/o Israel, the PA/PLO/Fatah are nothing.

I celebrate the re-recognition of Palestine. 1947 until now was too long.

Why doesn’t he ask Suha Arafat for some money? Palestinian leadership is notorious for absconding with hundreds of millions. Add all of the “aid” these people get, and they should all be driving Porsches in beach-front villas on the med. Shooting rockets at their neighbors is more important I see.

What are you talking about? There never was a Palestine. Britain controlled that land before Israel, and before them the Ottomans.

Palestinians have money for guns and rockets, but not enough for humanitarian purposes? With all the money they spend on rockets, bombs, and guns, I would think they could feed and take care of all their people.

If they did not constantly attack Israel, the borders would be open and their would be trade and jobs. I can understand why Israel would close their borders to keep out the suicide attacks.

I once thought Israel should treat the Palestinians better, but that was before the attacks on Americans, hijackings of airlines and cruise ships. These are things we will never forget or forgive the Palestinians for. These people behave like a cancer on the region.

What complete horseshit from “MikeBarnett” blathering some of the absurd antis real lies
used by antiSemitic morons (“oh no, I’m really just against Israel”) like him.
Simple truth of matter is that Israel was attacked (yet again) on Yom Kippur of course by the combined armies of multiple Arab countries. much to everyone’s surprise, the resourceful and brave IDF although badly outnumbered, was able to recover from this treacherous attack and wind up defeating Egypt, Jordan, and Syrian armies combined.
The unexpected benefit to Israel (& the Judeo-Christian world) was that they were able to regain control of lands Judea & Samaria, historically & legally theirs. This means that people of ALL faiths (nut just Moslems) have access toJerusalem’s holy sites and that some Israelis were at last able to return to their ancestral homelands.
