Mitt Romney called Jerusalem the capital of Israel, angering the Palestinians and receiving cheers from Israelis. The Palestinians said Romney was undermining peace prospects. What peace prospects?
There are no peace prospets when your enemy wants you removed from existence. The Palestinians said Romney was ignoring their own claims to the city and most world opinion. Good for him ignoring their false claims to Jerusalem. As to world opinion, only the Muslim world and looney people who have bought the lies believe the Palestinians.
The Palestinians said:
"We condemn his statements. Those who speak about the two-state solution should know that there can be no Palestinian state without East Jerusalem," chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat told Reuters on Monday.
"What this man is doing here is just promoting extremism, violence and hatred, and this is absolutely unacceptable," he said. "His statements are just rewarding the occupation and aggression." (Yahoo News)
Whew! That's rich. That's fantasy.
Barack Hussein Obama's administration will not take a stand, they will not say that Jerusalem belongs to Israel.
