Erekat's lies and hypocrisy!!!

Reader comment on item: Accept Israel as the Jewish State?

  • Dr Pipes, you write: "Saeb Erekat, head of the PLO Negotiations Department: "The Palestinians will never acknowledge Israel's Jewish identity. … There is no country in the world where religious and national identities are intertwined."

    Erekat's generalization is both curious and revealing. Not only do 56 states and the PLO belong to the Organization of the Islamic Conference, but most of them, including the PLO, make the Shari‘a (Islamic law) their main or only source of legislation. Saudi Arabia even requires that every subject be a Muslim."

    But this is expected from Muslims. Why be surprised by Erekat's comment. These guys are always hypocritic and lie to alll non-Muslims. That is their right given to them by allah.

    Of course, Israel has all the right to call themselves a Jewish state regardless of what Muslims want. That is inconsequential!!

    The peace conference should have been between the two parties of interest, Israelis and Palestinians. The rest of the Muslims countries such as Saudi arabia had no business to poke their nose in the conference. The other Muslims simply meddle in negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians and don't want any peace between them. It is a well established fact or the conflict would been resolved decades ago. It was Rice's folly to invite the whole bunch of Muslim countries in this conference as no useful purpose is served by that.
