<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"><span style='font-size: 14pt'>"The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct Palestinian people to oppose Zionism.

For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan."</span>

I think the Palestinians should be allowed to immigrate in mass to the U.S. of A. and settle down south.

If the demokrooks could get them registered to vote ... it would already have happened.

Inconvenient OPINION, perhaps.

Not an especially compelling or authoritative opinion, despite the misleading statement that he was part of the PLO.

Somehow, whereas he says there is no difference between Jordanians and Palestinians, the Hashemite king of Jordan waged a war against them and threw them out of the country with military action.

Indeed, as your link itself mentions:

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">The journalist Robert Fisk was to claim that as-Sa'iqa, under Mohsen, was to employ its energies "almost exclusively against their brother Palestinians",[6] stating that in June 1976 he saw "the PLO in open combat within West Beirut against Saiqa, who had attacked Arafat's forces on orders from Damascus."[7] Mohsen's militia has also been accused of being amongst the main perpetrators of the January 1976 Damour massacre, while some Lebanese Christian sources have suggested Mohsen led the attack on the town. </div></div>

The Middle East politics are baroque, and the Baathist Party (hq'd in Iraq and Syria) were NOT Palestinian loyalists much, but instead, Pan-Arabists, with a different agenda from al-Fatah (the main faction controlling the PLO at the time).

And, as you conveniently ignore, that was years later ... and has nothing to do with the fact that the palestinians are in fact a "CREATED PEOPLE" in that the tiuted "TWO STATE" solution was tried and the palestinians were given a homeland at the same time the Israelis were.

Any clue what happened next?

Of course not ... the regime doesn't permit you to know history that wasn't spoon delivered.

<span style='font-size: 17pt'>Ha ha!</span>

'years later' = 1 year <span style='font-size: 14pt'>prior</span>, you mean?

His statement was in 1977, and the war he waged against the PLO was in 1976.

Yes, of course there was a second state in the UN resolution, although the Security Counsel's binding resolution never got a chance to be passed, only the General Assembly's non-binding resolution-- at which point, the Israelis launched their ethnic cleansing and war-crime efforts, including the couple of dozen massacres led by their future civilian and military leadership.

So here's the question: if there were no Palestinian people, WHO did the UN intend to give that state to? Jordan? Syria?

Wasn't it the Palestinian people, meaning the (yes) ethnic Arab inhabitants of the Palestinian Mandate area under the old League of Nations arrangement?
