'Despicable antisemitism' of new Palestine state

Maen Areikat, Palestinian ambassador to UN

So now we know. If the Palestinians' bid next week to win UN approval for a new state of Palestine is successful, there will be no Jews living there, says the PLO's ambassador to the UN in this USA Today report. With no Jews in Jordan, none in Saudi Arabia, and only a handful living in the remaining Arab states, the ethnic cleansing of the Arab world of its Jews will be complete. (With thanks Rona; Frank)

(WASHINGTON ) The Palestine Liberation Organization's ambassador to the United States said Tuesday that any future Palestinian state it seeks with help from the United Nations and the United States should be free of Jews.

"After the experience of the last 44 years of military occupation and all the conflict and friction, I think it would be in the best interest of the two people to be separated," Maen Areikat, the PLO ambassador, said during a meeting with reporters sponsored by The Christian Science Monitor. He was responding to a question about the rights of minorities in a Palestine of the future.

Such a state would be the first to officially prohibit Jews or any other faith since Nazi Germany, which sought a country that was judenrein, or cleansed of Jews, said Elliott Abrams, a former U.S. National Security Council official.

Israel has 1.3 million Muslims who are Israeli citizens. Jews have lived in "Judea and Samaria," the biblical name for the West Bank, for thousands of years. Areikat said the PLO seeks a secular state, but that Palestinians need separation to work on their own national identity.

The Palestinian demand is unacceptable and "a despicable form of anti-Semitism," Abrams said. A small Jewish presence in a future Palestine, up to 1% of the population, would not hurt the Palestinian identity, he said.

"No civilized country would act this way," Abrams said.

Israel has often complained of anti-Semitic views in Palestinian discourse. Palestinian media frequently publishes and broadcasts anti-Semitic sermons by Islamic religious leaders, while the Hamas-run Al-Aqsa TV shows programming for preschoolers that extolls hatred of Jews and suicide bombings, according to a 2009 State Department human rights report.

I would be very surprised to find Jews willingly wanting to live in Jewish hating countries.

so I will never go back there"

If few Jews would want to go live in Iraq, Libya, Algeria, or in Morocco for that matter, who would want to live in a PLO/PA ruled Arab state?

A Jew living under PLO/PA control would be under a constant threat of death, despoliation, or expulsion.

You're right, Eliyahu, that's why by definition there cannot be peace.

With not much effort, you can find languages in which the absence of jews conforms to the definition of "peace."

1941-2011 70 Years to Arab Nazism in "Palestine" nothing has changed!
The real FLAG of Arab-Palestine.

The same Arab-Nazi Judenrein plan... as you hear PLO's admission of a "vision" of a Jew-Free[1] (23rd) Arab State in Palestine...

In November, 1941, the Grand Mufti meets with Adolph Hitler[2]. Hitler declined to shake the Mufti's hand and refused to drink coffee with him[3]. (As Arabs were considered "monkeys" by Hitler/Nazis[4]). But still managed to cooperate against the Jews[5]. The Islamic pan-Arab leader also called for a jihad against the British and their Western allies[6].


Armies of the young: child soldiers in war and terrorism, David M. Rosen, (2005), p. 106

Nationalist rhetoric accompanied major efforts to build fascist-style youth organizations by recruiting young men to serve as the strike force of the nationalist movement. Throughout the 1930s the children of wealthy Palestinians returned home from European universities having witnessed the emergence of fascist paramilitary forces. Palestinian students educated in Germany returned to Palestine determined to found the Arab Nazi Party.

The Husseinis used the Palestinian Arab Party to establish the al-Futuwwa youth corps, which was named after an association of Arab Nazi Scouts. By 1936 the Palestinian Arab Party was sponsoring the developments of storm troops patterned on the German model. These storm troops, all children and youth, were to be outfitted in black trousers and red shirts... The young recruits took the following oath: "Life -- my right; independence -- my aspiration; Arabism -- my country, and there is no room in it for any but Arabs. In this I believe and Allah is my witness." .. The al-Futuwwa youth groups connected Palestinian youth to fascist youth movements elsewhere in the Middle East. While the Mufti was establishing youth groups in Palestine, al-Futuwwa groups were established in Iraq.
