The Palestinian Authority continues to speak “two views for two medias.” Fatah foreign relations director Nabil Sha’ath told Lebanese TV that a PA state must include all Arabs with Israeli citizenship as well as millions of foreign “refugees.”

The video and translation of his comments were provided by Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

“The French Initiative reshaped the issue of the ’Jewish State,” a formula that is also unacceptable to us – two states for two peoples,” Sha’ath said. “They can describe Israel as a state for two peoples, but we will be a state for one people.

“The story of two states for two peoples means that there will be a Jewish people over there and a Palestinian people here. We will never accept this….

“We will not sacrifice the 1.5 million Palestinians with Israeli citizenship and we will never agree to a clause preventing the Palestinian refugees from returning to their country.”

  1. Don’t they realize the military of the United States will be right there to back up the Israelis? I don’t think they believe that Jews and Christians from other parts of the world will be on the front lines protecting our Holy Land. They will. So much of this is just blabber. If they put as much energy into improving their lives and caring about other Muslims, they might succeed in building a future for their children.

    “There is no G-d but G-d.” Guess who knew Him first.

  2. Why does Israel take these lowlife raghead mafia types seriously. These creatures belong back in the middle ages. It is almost comedic that these gangsters think they will displace the native people of the Israel ,Samaria Judea who possess the 3rd strongest army in the world and 400 nukes.

    Mr. BHO must learn Arabic and he will then realize that he should get out of the Israel/Palestinian conflict.

    Why? If you can heal the planet and make the oceans recede, surely solving the Israeli/Arab conflict is just a morning’s work.
