Greenfield: Obama’s Chief of Staff Attended Conference with Call for Destruction of Israel

Obama’s Chief of Staff attended the anti-Israel J Street conference and called for an end to 50 years of Israeli occupation. That was a moderate position considering what some attended at the conference of the anti-Israel group were calling for.

Here at a panel featuring Peter Beinart, who recently called for freezing the assets of members of the Israeli government, Marcia Freedman, a Berkeley leftist called for the destruction of Israel. (from Elder of Ziyon)

Marcia Freedman’s argument is circuitous and buried in touchy-feel language, but its conclusion is unmistakeable. “We can begin to imagine a homeland for the Jewish people in which we are a minority, because we are a protected minority (Dhimmi)”…

Their “protected status” does not seem to be working in Yemen. How well has this worked for Middle East Christians? Are these people completely out of their minds?

    Weird. It’s as though there exists this cult which regards total submission as the highest plane of morality.

  • David Murrell

    Yes, but there has to be high-profile critics of Obama, willing to take him to task. Republicans stay silent; so does the conservative media. The Obama administration is being openly anti-Semitic.

    The intention of Fakestinians to create one single Arab state ruled by Amman’s monarchy has been well-known for a long time.

    After the Israeli War of Independence, Jordan (then known as TRANS-Jordan) annexed those parts of the western bank of the Dead Sea that Israel had not captured. They dubbed this region “THE WEST BANK”, although the territory of Israel itself also constitutes PART of the west bank of the Jordan River. (During the periods of British and Ottoman rule, the areas had been known by their historical names, Judea and Samaria.)

    The Arab official line before a “two state solution” became stated policy of Israel and the West, was that the people in Trans-Jordan cum Jordan were indivisible from those Arabs inside Israel proper, Judea and Samaria. In fact there are statements by leading Arabs buttressing the notion that indeed: Jordan is Palestine and Palestine is Jordan.

    Jordan justified this annexation by arguing that “Jordan is Palestine”. By this they meant that Jordan was (in their own view) the only legitimate state in all of Palestine, and since Palestine is a single, indivisible entity, Jordan was entitled to rulership over both the eastern and western banks (which included Israel, of course).

    A Jordanian State stamp dating from 1964, bearing the likeness of King Hussein and pictures Mandated Palestine as an undivided territory.

    “Palestine and Jordan are one…” said King Abdullah in 1948.

    “The truth is that Jordan is Palestine and Palestine is Jordan,” said King Hussein of Jordan, in 1981.

    “Palestine is Jordan and Jordan is Palestine; there is only one land, with one history and one and the same fate,” Prince Hassan in the Jordanian National Assembly was quoted as saying on February 2, 1970.

    Abdul Hamid Sharif, Prime Minister of Jordan declared, in 1980, “The Palestinians and Jordanians do not belong to different nationalities. They hold the same Jordanian passports, are Arabs and have the same Jordanian culture.”

    What are we to conclude from this other than the historical perspective at the time, that being, they (the Arabs) saw themselves as being part of Palestine/Palestinian. Around 70% of the Jordanian population today, still see themselves as Palestinians. Even Yasser Arafat and his PLO thugs looked to Jordan as being a part of their homeland.

    Finally, the Fakestinian flag is the Jordanese flag minus one star.
