Defying U.S., Abbas Orders “State of Palestine” Terminology
Cybercast News Service ^ | January 7, 2013 | Patrick Goodenough

Five weeks after the Obama administration asserted that a United Nations vote on upgrading the Palestinian entity’s status “does not establish that Palestine is a state,” Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday ordered that all references to the Palestinian Authority be changed to the “State of Palestine.”

From passports to postage stamps, diplomatic mission titles to official stationery, the name of a state that does not legally exist will replace that of the self-rule administration established under the Oslo Accords, brokered by the Clinton administration in the early 1990s.

Abbas issued the decree instructing the change several days after saying during an event in Ramallah that the U.N. vote constituted the “birth certificate” of the state. …

I SWEAR:

A week ago, in Marseilles, a left-wing American business partner actually turned red when I referred to the president as "barack hussein obama." (no caps on purpose.)

"It is wildly disrespectful, ans a sign of your racist right-wing proclivities, that you choose to call our President by that name."

Funny how it still turns “racist” and “right-wing” to call the POTUS by his own name, when a rabid left-winger hears it. I’d hate to hear this person’s views on “Palestine” or the “state” thereof.

Shockingly the person in question, someone very dear to me, is, tragically, a Jew, am I.

Is he a Jew, or is he a decendant of the Edomites that were driven into Israel by the Roman’s? When Israel was later dispersed, the Edomites were also dispersed, and called themselves Jews.

To this day the Edomite blood shows...

Ask your putatively "jewish" business partner the middle name of the guy above, and also ask him why the guy above is taking off his shoes?

If he replies, "to show respect", ask your putatively "jewish" business partner if he shows as much respect to Judaism, by acknowledging the sovereignty of Israel over the entire land of Israel, as referred to thousand of times in the Torah as well as in our traditional 3x/day daily prayers for the last few thousand years...

There are plenty of pictures of Obama in a yarmulke I could post here, but do you see, just from the purely logical point of view, that your comparison is erroneous -- that following one group's religious practices when you're in their places of worship isn't the same as committing yourself to major policy changes?

Though I was referring to the original posters “jewish” friend I could have made the argument for Barack Hussein Obama as well.

His quickly and smoothly removing his shoes off in a mosque is not

“...following one group’s religious practices when you’re in their places of worship”..

it’s a religious practice he is familiar with from his years as a “former” muslim and goes hand in hand with his many other actions showing his deference to islam over Christianity or Judaism, which REFLECT HIS POLICIES and views regarding the region, NOT THOSE OF MOST AMERICANS.

Barack Hussein Obama’s first international call from the WH was to Abbas.

Barack Hussein Obama’s first international TV interview was with Al Arabiya

Barack Hussein Obama spoke in Cairo where HE PERSONALLY INSISTED that muslim brotherhood be seated (pre-deposing Mubarack) in the front row, where he repeated the PLO lie that Israel’s history in the region began in 1948

as for

“...isn’t the same as committing yourself to major policy changes?”

Barack Hussein Obama demands Israel cease building homes on JEWISH LAND, and demands that Jerusalem and Israel be cut in half to create a new jihadi state.

A MAJORITY OF AMERICANS do not support this “process.”

He has continually lessened his comments / actions in support of Christmas and Thanksgiving while wildly promoting his attendance at Ramabombadan (sic) dinners...

HE DESERVES TO BE CALLED BY HIS FULL NAME, DEMONSTRATING HIS CONNECTION TO ISLAM.

Anyone who fights using his middle name is naive, or a supporter of islam who wants to hide Barack Hussein Obama’s connection to it.

Abbas is no fool, he knows there's no downside for defying BHO and Hillary. Maybe our policy has changed, and he's defying no one.

If there’s no downside to defying them, what’s Bibi’s problem?
