Another Double Standard

The chief negotiator for the Palestinian Arabs, Saeb Erekat, said Wednesday during an interview on the satellite station Al-Arabia: "Israel can define itself however it sees fit; and if it wishes to call itself a Jewish state, so be it, but the Palestinians will never acknowledge Israel's Jewish identity."

PLO Executive Committee member Yasser Abed Rabbo similarly rejected Israel's insistence the Palestinian Arabs recognize Israel's identity, saying "it is only a Zionist party that deals with Israel as a Jewish state, and we did not request to be a member of the international Zionism movement."

In contrast, the Palestinian Arabs repeatedly insist Israel accept not only their identity, but their skewed narrative.

Consistency has never been a characteristic of Israel's enemies.
