Mahmoud Abbas promises apartheid Palestine state
Attention apartheid shoppers: Have we got a potential bargain country for you! Mahmoud Abbas, the expired term head of the mythical country of Palestine, has promised
"We have frankly said, and always will say: If there is an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital, we won't agree to the presence of one Israeli in it," Abbas told reporters in Ramallah.
Abbas is in bad company, joining other apartheid states in the region in segregating some religious or ethnic groups. Jordan, which does not allow Jews to live in the country, also refuses to grant citizenship to some of its so called Palestinian citizens even though they have the same religious and cultural background. Lebanon confines people it calls Palestinians to certain areas, denies them citizenship, prohibits them from numerous professions and education. Saudi Arabia does not allow Christians to enter the country with Christian bibles or other religious symbols; if found they are immediately confiscated. Houses of worship other than mosques are not allowed. Very few Jews are allowed to enter the country. Syria's Jews fled the country; none live there now.
Will the UN and its upcoming Durban anti racism racist conference, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and all the other so called human rights anti racism organizations condemn--or even mildly rebuke--Abbas for his latest blatantly hated filled, pro apartheid pronouncement? Based on previous (non) action the answer is no; based on previous action they will praise him for his peaceful statements and intent while condemning Israel.
