RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — A crowd of Palestinians has accosted an American diplomatic delegation visiting the West Bank.

Associated Press reporters saw about 30 protesters blocking the convoy of vehicles, chanting "shame on you" and hurling shoes — a deeply insulting gesture in Arab culture.

Tuesday's incident comes amid tensions in American-Palestinian ties. The U.S. has vowed to block the Palestinians' request for recognition of an independent state at the United Nations. It also hinted it may cut aid if Palestinians proceed with their plans.

Why do Palestinians identify by a European word invented by the British after World War I?

Are Palestinians from Great Britain?:lol:

Palestinians are the most fucked up losers on the planet. No wonder even Arabs spit on them :lol:

Wall Street Journal: "The Arab World's Dirty Secret".
As Israelis and Palestinians prepare to visit Washington next week to begin direct peace talks, it's worth recalling what refugees the Palestinians are—in Arab countries.

Last week, Lebanon's parliament amended a clause in a 1946 law that had been used to bar the 400,000 Palestinians living in the country from taking any but the most menial jobs. "I was born in Lebanon and I have never known Palestine," the AP quoted one 45-year-old Palestinian who works as a cab driver. "We want to live like Lebanese. We are human beings and we need civil rights."

The dirty little secret of the Arab world is that it has consistently treated Palestinians living in its midst with contempt and often violence. In 1970, Jordan expelled thousands of Palestinian militants after Yasser Arafat attempted a coup against King Hussein. In 1991, Kuwait expelled some 400,000 Palestinians working in the country as punishment for Arafat's support for Saddam Hussein in the first Gulf War.

For six decades, Palestinians have been forced by Arab governments to live in often squalid conditions so that they could serve as propaganda tools against Israel, even as millions of refugees elsewhere have been repatriated and absorbed by their host countries. This month's vote still falls short of giving Palestinian Lebanese the rights they deserve, including citizenship. But it's a reminder of the cynicism of so much Arab pro-Palestinian propaganda, and the credulity of those who fall for it.

GAZA, (PIC)-- Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri lauded the pelting of the convoy of the U.S. ambassador in Israel with shoes in a display of rage over the U.S.’s unwavering support for the Israeli occupation of Palestine, as the diplomat visited Ramallah in the occupied West Bank.

“We applaud whoever threw the shoes at the convoy of the American Consul,” Abu Zuhri said in a statement to the Palestinian Information Center, adding the incident reflected “Palestinian rage over America’s hostile policies toward our people as well as the Arab and Muslim peoples.”

Abu Zuhri called for using all peaceful means to express rage at America’s bias to Israel and to show Arab and Islamic rejection of such American policies.

No one had heard of a Palestinian people before the mid-1960s. They did not exist. Israel under the British Mandate until Israel' s Independence in 1948 was called Palestine. All Jews who were born there until i948 had the word « Palestine » stamped on their passports. The current Palestinians are those Arabs who, for a variety of reasons, decided to leave the land during the 1947 War of Independence, when five countries – Jordan, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and Iraq – attacked the 600,000 people in the fledgling state of Israel the day after its birth, hoping to kill it in the crib.

Pulitzer Prize-Winning Writer Charles Krauthammer...
Israel is the very embodiment of Jewish continuity: It is the only nation on earth that inhabits the same land, bears the same name, speaks the same language, and worships the same God that it did 3,000 years ago. You dig the soil and you find pottery from Davidic times, coins from Bar Kokhba, and 2,000-year-old scrolls written in a script remarkably like the one that today advertises ice cream at the corner candy store.
