Racist Palestinian Leader Rejects Jewish State (again)

The Palestinian leader also criticized demands made by the International Quartet of his Authority, urging the international community to back off.

11;50 AM Saeb Erekat lies and fibs and fabricates all the time.

And now, even a US diplomat has to point that out:
US Consulate Denies Statements Attributed to its Consul General
August 27, 2011 (WAFA) – The United States consulate in Jerusalem Saturday denied statements attributed to its consul general, Daniel Rubinstein.

Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat has quoted Rubinstein as telling him following their meeting in Jericho on Friday that the US Administration believes the Palestinian bid to ask for United Nations recognition and membership in September is futile and useless and that the US will veto the resolution and may even cut aid to the Palestinian Authority if it proceeds with its plans.

Deputy spokesperson of the U.S. consulate in Jerusalem, Arlissa Reynolds, said in a statement that “while we cannot get into private diplomatic

No injuries or damage.

To all our friends and readers in the USA -- stay safe! (and dry)

Shame on you for 'exposing' the culture of lies. Who are we to criticize another people's culture? Every people should be able to nurture their own culture, and not for us to judge them by our 'western' values. The culture of lies is a foundation part of the Palestinian nation. We have to learn to respect this.

Then everyone believes it.
