YWCA refers to my wife

Reader comment on item: Pretending There's a Country Called "Palestine"

Submitted by yuval Brandstetter MD (Israel), Jan 5, 2009 at 02:39

"to empower Palestinian women by expanding their options, supporting their economic independence, liberating them from all kinds of oppression and enhancing their participation in the building of a free Palestinian civil society." (January 3, 2009)

that must be my spouse. She has various options, she can enlarge her education, she wishes to be liberated from jihadi opression, and she certainly participates in building a strong civil society.

My wife is a Palestinian. Her dad has a Palestinian passport, so does her mother, so do my parents. those passports were issued by his Brittanic majesty King George the fifth, nominally the King of Palestine under British rule. he was the one and only Palestinian king, and he was not Arab, to the best of my knowledge. All of the above are jewish, because Jews are the onlty Palestinians, whereas Arabs are Arabs, be they from Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Kosovo, Tunisia, and all other territories taken over by Jihad.

So YWCA is correct, its only your assumption that they refer to Arabs in those lofty words that is mistaken. They refer to Jews.
