Chris Christie and the"Occupied Territories" Incident

Reader comment on item: Chris Christie and the "Occupied Territories" Incident

Well now, I do love the "Pravda" reference! that is right on. Christie is so typical of most politicians. How many actually know real Middle East history? Not many. Michael Freund just quoted you on your "The Year the Arabs Discovered Palestine" 1989 Middle East Rreview article re Arab 1920 pogrom against the Jews of Palestine. Since the Arabs had no Palestinian identity until that date, and really did not even consider themselves truly attached to the land until around 1967, with thousands of years of Jewish history erased, the slacker media confirmed their new-found identity as "real" and convinced the ignorant politicians of the great new lie. At least we know where Christie gets his education! Ignorance in a president is not bliss, and we have had more than enough of that already!
