What Palestinian?

Reader comment on item: In Mideast, Bet on a Strong Horse

Submitted by yuval Brandstetter MD (Israel), Feb 16, 2010 at 13:26

" the Palestinian father shouted "Die! Die quickly! Die quickly! ." Please no smearing of Palestinians. This guy who stabs his daughter is an Arab, Muslim, and consequently a mysogynist. The only true Palestinians are Jewish, who gladly supported the British Mandate in Palestine as long as it honored its only stated function, to remakes Palestine the Jewish National Home, and fought the same British when perfidy became their policy. Words matter. When you append Palestinian to mysogynist violence you append my dad to such violence, and wife's dad to such misbehavior, neither of whom deserves such calumny. Stick to Arabs, Jews, Brits, French. Remember, there was never an independent country or State or people named Palestine. Therefore there are no Palestinians, only Arabs. As for those so-called refugees, apply UNHCR standards and poof, there are no refugees, only invaders marauding in the Land of Israel.
