The U.S. State Department does not consider it necessary for Palestinians to recognize Israel as a Jewish State, said spokesperson Jen Psaki, according to an interview in the Palestinian daily newspaper Al-Quds Saturday.So again, they're only encouraging the PLO to keep being callous and hostile to Israel, a very poor example.
"Our position is that Israel is a Jewish state, but it is not necessary for the two sides to agree on this in the final agreement," Psaki told Al-Quds, in a translation from Arabic produced by the Times of Israel on Sunday.
THIS IS WORSE THAN A POOR EXAMPLE; THIS IS TREACHEROUS AND A COMPLETE REVERSAL OF LONG-HELD USA POLICY.
IN 1947, U.N.G.A. RESOLUTION 181 AUTHORIZED THE CREATION OF A JEWISH STATE.
SO THE REQUIRING ABBAS AND OTHER ARAB NATIONS RECOGNIZE ISRAEL AS THE JEWISH STATE IS NOT A NEW DEMAND, NOT A "RIGHT-WING" LIKUD DEMAND, AND NOT AN OUTRAGEOUS DEMAND.
PEOPLE WHO ARGUE IT'S A DEAL BREAKER ARE ANTISEMITIC SCUM.
THE JEWISH STATE OF ISRAEL MUST NOT EVER MAKE ANY DEAL WITH ANY STATE WHICH FAILS TO ACCEPT ISRAEL AS A JEWISH STATE.
MANY STATES ARE OFFICIALLY RELIGIOUS STATES OF ONE DENOMINATION OR ANOTHER.
ISRAEL IS JUST ONE MANY DOZENS.
AND ISRAEL IS THE ONLY JEWISH STATE AND THE ONLY DEMOCRATIC STATE IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND THE ONLY MIDDLE EASTERN STATE IN WHICH IT IS SAFE TO PRACTICE ANY RELIGION.
ISRAEL HAS ARAB/MUSLIM MEMBERS OF THE KNESSET AND THERE'S EVEN AN ARAB MUSLIM JUDGE ON THE ISRAELI SUPREME COURT.
WHEN ARABS CAN SAY THE SAME THING ABOUT THEIR NATIONS - THAT PEOPLE OF ANY RELIGION CAN PRACTICE THERE AND ACHIEVE HIGH GOVERNMENTAL OFFICE, THEN THERE WILL BE A CHANCE AT PEACE.
UNTIL THEN ALL THIS PEACE PROCESS TALK IS TOTAL UNADULTERATED BULLSHIT.
A DANGEROUS DELUSION.
