It doesn’t get plainer than this. Senior Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat rejects any recognition of Israel’s Jewish identity. The Jewish national identity of the state of Israel is crucial to the continued existence of the state itself, the refusal to admit as much, reveals much about those who are refusing to acknowledge that legitimate right.
Asked by The Jerusalem Post whether he recognizes that the Jewish nation has historic rights here, Erekat said: “Israel has rights in the Middle East and the majority of Israelis are Jews. And when we recognized Israel, we recognized the composition of the state.” Erekat had told an Arabic satellite TV interviewer earlier this week that the Palestinian Authority “will never acknowledge Israel’s Jewish identity.”
The core issue behind the existence of a Jewish state is to safeguard the future existence of Jews the world over, while achieving the deserved and legitimate right for Jewish self determination, called Zionism. That Jews have been systematically victimized throughout their diaspora, has never been a point deemed worthy of debate, because it’s an undeniable fact.
In the aftermath of the Jewish Holocaust, the aspirations of Jews wanting to live in their ancient homeland became highlighted as never before. It is therefore crucial that Israel’s supposed “former enemies” recognize the Jewish character of the state of Israel, and that they no longer hold any future designs in changing it.
A failure to do so will only serve to underline the Arab’s default position that, Jews will never be accepted as equals within the Arab/Muslim Middle East. Their refusal to recognize Israel’s Jewish identity, can be then rightly interpreted as being a position that is no different from that of the Islamonazis, that are currently waging jihad against Israel and the rest of the world.
The Palestinians have a long way to go before being taken seriously as wanting to officially end their religious conflict against the Jewish state of Israel. More here.
Note: TINSC offers yet again another astute observation:
“Therefore, one can only conclude that the PA is at war with the Jews. This is yet further proof that the driving force behind the Arabs’ War Against Israel is in fact anti-Semitism.
Saeb Erekat is a mainstream media darling. He has mastered the art of double-talk and there is no lie too outrageous that he won’t tell. This is especially true when he knows a major media source will quote him. From a hasbara standpoint, Israel has few greater enemies in the PA. I’m very glad to see Tundra Tabloids exposing his half-truths and lies.”
