(Jerusalem Online) -- One of the false mantras of the so-called Palestinian leadership and their BDS supporters is that they are being ethnically cleansed by the brutal Zionist occupiers. This despite the fact that the Arab population is increasing by leaps and bounds and thanks to Israel their health and medical care has improved greatly.
So where is the ethnic cleansing? It is against Jews by the Palestinian leadership supported by the BDS activists and now with the help of the United Nations.
On a visit to Cairo in July of 2013, Mahmoud Abbas said that “no Jew, civilian or otherwise, would be permitted to live in the future Palestinian state.” He repeated it several times to his own people before someone whispered in his ear that this was being construed as anti-Semitic and not helpful to their cause, so he switched the word “Jew” to “Israeli.” But it was too late. He had already set the marker. This Holocaust denier had said what he meant. It is further proof that the main obstacle to a two-state solution is not the settlements, as UNSC 2334 would have us believe, but the absolute refusal of Abbas to acknowledge the presence of the Jewish State of Israel. This is too abhorrent a reality for Mahmoud Abbas and certainly also Hamas on the other side of the Palestinian political divide.
