No room for Jews in new Palestinian state

Not that they'll succeed in getting the UN to grant them statehood. The US has the veto and will use it if it comes to that.

But Ann Bayefsky, writing in the Weekly Standard, points out a curious omission in the Palestinian logo:


Absent from the logo is any hint that Palestine consists of anything other than Arab territory. No nod is given even to the U.N.'s 1948 decision to divide the region into Jewish and Arab sectors. As for the shape of Israel by the time it was forced into waging the defensive Six Day war in 1967: irrelevant. The logo illustrates that the Palestinian bid before the U.N. for support of a unilateral declaration of statehood is disingenuous and dangerous.

There is not too much left to the imagination here: Israel is "wiped off the map."

How can you negotiate with a party that refuses to recognize you even exist?
