The Palestinians Do Not Want Equal Rights

Original Article

On Sunday, CNN's Jake Tapper suggested that Palestinian leaders "validate" hatred toward Israel while discussing the tone of American leaders following the mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, which, according to authorities, a suspected white supremacist perpetrated. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.), a Palestinian-American, took offense to Tapper's comment. "Comparing Palestinian human rights advocates to terrorist white nationalists is fundamentally a lie," she tweeted the next day. "Palestinians want equality, human dignity & to stop the imprisonment of children.

I have a disagreement with this article, the distinction between the the PA and the "palestinians". In the examples given, the palestinian people seem to want to seek peace, at least recognize the need to get along with Israel. I am sure that the people hear a drum beat of hatred of Israel and it is effective, to a point. However, many of these people are not blind to the realities of the situation. The PA uses hatred of Israel as a tool. The leaders are getting rich with this "product" and THAT is the main reason they persist. They are the well paid managers of "Hate Israel, Inc.". Saying this, it doesn't make the problem any better. Separating the leadership from the people may be impossible. But we need to be careful about saying all the palestinians are fully engaged in the plan for the destruction of Israel.

"Some" Palestinians want peace, and a whole lot of them were dancing in the streets on 9/11.

One only needs to read the Quran to understand what the Palestinian leaders want. Islam is the problem.

The PLO doesn't want "peace" with Israel. They want to annihilate it. There were many opportunities in the past, deals brokered by Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, where the palestinians could have had their own land, but then they couldn't further justify future efforts to kill Israeli's. The PLO treats palestinians like the DNC treats minorities in the US-they say they want to help them but they never do.

I don't care what the palestinians or their leadership want. Until they ALL learn to behave in a civilized manner they deserve to remain homeless and unwanted anywhere. If they had any ambition, talent or worth they would have carved out a piece of the many square miles of desert around the Mediterranean and built their own country. Tlaib is a vicious, vulgar liar and has no business speaking for palestinians or jews from her high perch in the US House of Representatives. She was elected to represent her district, period. Yes, it's the primary fault of the false religion that compels them to hate and kill.

Washington Monument to reopen next

The Washington Monument will reopen to the public next month for the first time in more than three years, the U.S. National Park Service announced Friday. Public tours of 555-foot-tall landmark will resume Sept. 19, the NPS said in a statement. The world’s tallest building at the time of its completion in 1889, the Washington Monument was indefinitely shuttered in August 2016 due to issues with its elevator system. Millions of dollars have since been invested in modernizing the monument’s elevator system and constructing a new security screening facility for visitors. The monument had been previously slated to reopen this spring, but the NPS said in April that construction

The Trump administration announced long-awaited “public charge” immigration regulations this week, and the furor immediately kicked up to derangement level. Reason’s Shikha Dalmia called the policy a “complete abuse of the original understanding” of the law. In the Washington Post, opinion writer Paul Waldman said the policy sends a message: “We hate you and we don’t want you here, and if you come we will treat you with all the cruelty we can muster.” CNN’s legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin went so far as to call the proposed regulation “un-American.” There is very little nuance left in political discourse. Every administration policy is said to be the key

A movement by an enclave in the communist bloc to grant its people the greater freedoms enjoyed in the West — that’s the drama playing out in Hong Kong today. Yet as youthful protestors wave American flags and sing our national anthem, American support for their cause is being tepidly expressed, at best. As Communist China’s strongman, Xi Jinping, deploys his troops at the border of the former British Crown Colony, clearly threatening armed intervention, the best President Trump has offered is to urge him to “quickly and humanely solve the Hong Kong problem.” To what “problem” is the president referring? What prior example of the regime’s humanity is he summoning?

Perhaps when you think of the founding of the United States, you think of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Federalist Papers. Now, the New York Times wants to "reframe" your understanding of the nation's founding. In the Times' view (which it hopes to make the view of millions of Americans), the country was actually founded in 1619, when the first Africans were brought to North America, to Virginia, to be sold as slaves. This year marks the 400th anniversary of that event, and the Times has created something called the 1619 Project. This is what the paper hopes the project will accomplish:

As sailors and Marines are sailing in more contested waters, the blue-green team is getting creative about how to defend amphibious assault ships from enemy small boats and drones. Members of the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit were photographed sailing through the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf this week with a Light Armored Vehicle on the flight deck. The armored vehicle can be seen in the background of photos released by the Marine Corps on Wednesday, showing AH-1Z Viper attack helicopters flying off the amphibious assault ship Boxer. The LAV was first spotted by Phil Ewing, national security editor at NPR.

Back in June, California Gov. Gavin Newsom made an incredible claim about homeless people in his state. Asked why the homeless population hadn’t declined when he was Mayor of San Francisco, Newsom said, “The vast majority (of San Francisco’s homeless people) also come in from — and we know this — from Texas. Just (an) interesting fact.”Newsom’s claim was discounted by the LA Times last month but Politifact decided to investigate independently. This week the least reliable fact-checker in the business agreed that Newsom’s statement was absurd, giving it a “Pants on Fire” rating.

They include detailed plans to pay then-high school stars such as Zion Williamson and Romeo Langford, line-item accounting of alleged payments to the people around eventual No. 1 pick Deandre Ayton, and an acknowledgement by a top Nike executive that “the perception and resulting reality is that we dictate where players go to school.” Controversial lawyer Michael Avenatti produced the exhibits on Friday that supported his allegations filed earlier this week that Nike has engaged in widespread corruption and under-the-table payments to high school players

On Wednesday, senators released the transcript of an interview with an investigator for the Intelligence Community Inspector General that included new revelations about Hillary Clinton’s illegal, off-the-books email system. The Daily Caller headlines: “Clinton IT Aide Who Defied Subpoena Says He Created A Cryptic Gmail Account And Sent It Nearly All Of Hillary’s Emails.” I won’t attempt an exhaustive summary; for the details, which remain obscure, follow the link.

President Trump’s approval rating has edged up, driven by long-term confidence in his economy and boosted by the lackluster performances of the two dozen Democrats trying to beat him in the 2020 election, according to the latest Zogby Analytics poll.

BEIT UR AL-FAUQA, West Bank - Sitting under an olive tree in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, Muftia Tlaib scoffs at the attention she has recently received from the president of the United States. "May God ruin him," she says. Tlaib is the grandmother of U.S. congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, at the center of an affair that has drawn Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu together against U.S. Democrats. On Thursday, bowing to pressure from Trump, Israel barred a visit by Rashida Tlaib and fellow Democrat Ilhan Omar that it had initially said it would allow. The next day, Israel said

Taija Russell, 29, was arrested Tuesday in connection with a fire that destroyed a home earlier this month, said Woodbury police.

Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a name that's highly recognizable to the general public. (snip) Less than two weeks after Chakrabarti ditched the bartender-turned-socialist to bask in his lavish Silicon Valley lifestyle, she's in shambles. A once-eloquent speaker has entirely lost the ability to explain her flagship proposal, so she's going all-in on the climate aspect of the Green New Deal. Without Chakrabarti’s brains, Cortez is embarrassingly doubling down on the sham of a bill that has now been debunked by Chakrabarti himself. Recently, Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter to claim that coal miners are allegedly now on board with her proposed Green New Deal.

For one thing, he was wearing slippers. Expensive, embroidered, monogrammed slippers. But slippers all the same. For another, he was accompanied by two exceptionally attractive women. As the man half shuffled, half walked down the avenue, the women walked slightly behind him, as if they were attendants or staff.
