in response to reader comment: Staggering Idiocy

What's CHILLING is that someone of Huckabee's ignorance is even in the running for the GOP.

I wonder, what would be the reaction from the "right" in this country if a candidate had the courage to actually state the Palestinian cause has long ago worn out their right to a Palestinian state?

That Palestinians fire Kassam rockets daily into Israel? Go on to cite all the failed "deals" that were repeatedly broken by the PLO? Articulate what is being taught to Palestinian children, what's in their textbooks? That Palestinian leadership doesn't recognize Israel's right to exist? That mullahs in Palestinian mosques preach total annihilation of the state of Israel?

Plain and simple, Palestinians are a terrorist group. They have proved this, time and time again, against Israel, even against Jordan (where they got their ass kicked, which is why they haven't tried it since).

If a Republican candidate was to say, Palestinians don't deserve a state - what would be so wrong with that?
