Clinging to Israel

Reader comment on item: Palestinians Who Cling to Israel

Submitted by Hilal Khashan (United States), Jul 11, 2005 at 05:39

This is absolutely true, at least from personal encounter It is the impression I gathered during a recent visit to Ramallah. Even though some Palestinians I met, and who had been to Israel, complained about "the horrible Israeli cuisine and wondered how could Israeli women get so fat on such foul tasting food," yet they grudgingly acknowledged that they would rather live
under Israeli jurisdiction than endemically corrupt PA administration.
