No Palestine

Reader comment on item: The Three-Way Option: Arab States, Israel, Palestinians

Submitted by Melvin A. Fechter (United States), Jan 29, 2017 at 02:44

What you say, Daniel, is little less than that anyone at any time upon any whim may create and declare the existence of a "new people." Once again, there is no such thing as a "Palestinian People"; you cannot arbitrarily declare their existence. There is not now, never has been, and never will be a "Palestinian People" or a "Sovereign State of Palestine."

Daniel Pipes replies:

I have not declared their existence. I have acknowledged reality.
