Also Because of Spins & Disinformation by The New York Times

Reader comment on item: Why Palestinian Delusions Persist

Submitted by Robert (United States), Dec 10, 2017 at 07:47

Dear Daniel Pipes,

President Donald Trump exhibits your appreciated "Truck Driver" perspective
when he often cites what he labels as "FAKE NEWS."
Like a Truck Driver he appreciates "big words," but doesn't use them himself,
unless he gets a writer to write him a good speech
as was the case last week when he declared Jerusalem to be Israel's Capitol.
A bit of intellectual analysis by an above average informed reader
would recognize his intent as covered by the big words "Propaganda" and "Disinformation,"
and another shot word, "Spin."

Below is a discussing piece of pseudo-journalism 9my big word)
by the notorious authority, Max Fisher of The Interpreter,
a column published or republished in the degenerate New York Times
under the pretense of offering an explanation.

In fact, it presents the Myth of the Liberal Establishment
which incorporates such views as those espoused by "Peace Now,"
whose agenda is that Israel must choose between Democracy or Apartheid
because there is no Third Alternative.
But off course there are many alternatives, namely,
Jordan, Egypt, Syria, Iraq, even Saudi Arabia, and possibly Turkey, and above all Eurabia !
As you observe elsewhere, instead of Genocide, the Arabs and Iranians and Turks
are in fact practicing Ethnic Cleansing.
But Israel would do no such thing, except, perhaps, the "Transfer" of Muslim Palestinians voluntarily.
As you know full well, the term "Transfer" was used about the time of the Two World Wars
to mean Forcible Transfer of Populations, as in the case of the Armenians by Turkey.
The so-called Settlements by Israelis do not involve Coercion whatsoever upon the Settlers.

Accordingly, all Palestinians, either Israeli Palestinians,
or resident in the Disputed Territories, or in Displaced Persons Camps
should be granted Citizenship anywhere in places outside of Israel.
Jordan, previously Transjordan, and before that Palestine on the East Side of the Jordan River,
is ideally suited by ethnic relationships and culture
for granting Jordanian citizenship to any Palestinian desiring the same.
