We’ve had an invented Palestinian people who are in fact Arabs and are historically part of the Arab community and they had a chance to go many places. And for a variety of political reasons we have sustained this war against Israel since the 1940s.Of course, the United States has long stood in theory for a people's right to self-determination (as long as they aren't commies) including the Palestinians both Republican and Democratic Presidents. But who cares there are votes to get. And there are many in the GOP more than willing to go along with the moronic talking point de jour.
I jumped up out of my chair and cheered for Newt when he said what he said about Palestine. -- Rudy GiulianiI hope Bernie Kerik didn't hurt himself when he was knocked off Rudy's lap during visitation.
