“The appearance of the Palestinian national personality comes as an answer to Israel’s claim that Palestine is Jewish.” – King Hussein of Jordan, 1987
“Yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity is there only for tactical reasons. The establishment of a Palestinian state is a new expedient to continue the fight against Zionism and for Arab unity.” – Zuheir Mohsein, 1977
“I think we’ve had an invented Palestinian people who are in fact Arabs, and who were historically part of the Arab community.” – Newt Gingrich, 2011
So what’s the big fuss over the comment from Gingrich? He’s just repeating the same party line of the Arab world themselves. They understand the situation of their Palestinian brothers, but the West refuses to accept it!
