We’ve been Jonesed, Van that Is.

We’ve all heard of Van Jones, the former “Green Jobs Czar”. I, for one, have heard a lot about him but never bothered to look into his background, until now. He’s an interesting fellow.

During the Rodney King trial in 1992 Jones was a Yale Law School student (of course, what else would he be) doing an internship for the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights (LCCR) in San Fransisco, which viewed the United States as an irredeemably racist nation.

Jones states, “I met all these young radical people of color – I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of.’ I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary. I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th. By August, I was a communist.”

He wrote an essay at the time which included, “After the [Rodney King] verdict, the pro-establishment folks were horrified as the rioting drove home a single truth: if “They” can get enough people out into the streets, “They” can do whatever they want to do.”
“Thus San Francisco’s Dukakis-backing, tofu-eating, Greenpeace-loving, sandal-wearing citizenry breathed a sigh of relief when the mayor snuffed out everyone’s rights and declared martial law.”
He sure did love you white liberals, eh. Interesting thought in the context of today’s “people in the streets”. My how things never change.

In 1993, Jones relocated to San Francisco, where he helped establish Bay Area Police Watch, a hotline and lawyer-referral service that began as a project of LCCR.

In 1996 he founded the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, which, claimed that the American criminal-justice system is infested with racism.

By the late 1990s, Jones was a committed Marxist-Leninist-Maoist who viewed police officers as the arch-enemies of black people, and who loathed capitalism for allegedly exploiting non white minorities worldwide. He became a leading member of Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), a now-defunct Bay Area Marxist-Maoist collective that was staffed by members of various local nonprofits, a number of whom had ties to the Ella Baker Center.

In the early 2000s, Jones and STORM were active in anti-Iraq War demonstrations organized by International ANSWER, a front group for the Marxist-Leninist Workers World Party. STORM also had ties to the South African Communist Party and it revered Amilcar Cabral, the late Marxist revolutionary leader (of Guinea-Bissau and the Cape Verde Islands) who lauded Lenin as “the greatest champion of the national liberation of the peoples.” (In 2006 Van Jones would name his own son “Cabral” — in Amilcar Cabral’s honor.)

During his time with STORM, Jones collaborated with many communist groups including, the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism (CCDS), a Communist Party USA splinter group, in the early 1990s. Elizabeth “Betita” Martinez continues to sit on the CCDS advisory board alongside other communists such as Angela Davis & Timuel Black (who served on Barack Obama’s 2004 Senate campaign committee). Martinez is also a board member of the Movement for a Democratic Society, the parent organization of Progressives for Obama.

In 2005 Jones and the Ella Baker Center produced the “Social Equity Track” for the United Nations’ World Environment Day celebration, a project that eventually would evolve into the Baker Center’s Green-Collar Jobs Campaign — “a job-training and employment pipeline providing ‘green pathways out of poverty’ for low-income adults in Oakland.” I’m sure that worked out great. I know, when I think green, I think Oakland.

Soon after attending the Clinton Global Initiative in September 2007, Jones launched “Green For All,” a non-governmental organization “dedicated to building an inclusive green economy strong enough to lift people out of poverty … advocating for local, state and federal commitment to job creation, job training, and entrepreneurial opportunities in the emerging green economy – especially for people from disadvantaged communities.”

In 2008 Jones published his first book, The Green Collar Economy, which focused on environmental and economic issues. The book received favorable reviews from such notables as Al Gore, Nancy Pelosi, Laurie David, Winona LaDuke, environmentalist Paul Hawken, and NAACP President/CEO Ben Jealous. There’s a shocker, huh.
In March of 2009, Obama appointed Jones his Green Jobs Czar.

In a July 2009 interview with Newsweek magazine, Jones, said he could not explain exactly what a “green job” is:
“Well, we still don’t have a unified definition, and that’s not unusual in a democracy. It takes a while for all the states and the federal government to come to some agreement. But the Department of Labor is working on it very diligently. Fundamentally, it’s getting there, but we haven’t crossed the finish line yet.”
I’ll define it. A green job is a government-subsidized job. That’s it.

So, there we have it; the history of a radical communist, racist. But at least he’s green.

What would Keynes do? (Who cares)

Yesterday I read an article by Thomas Geoghegan on “The Nation.com” website. Yes it is indeed a far left rag, but sometimes it pays to see what they over yonder are thinking. They, once again, didn’t disappoint. I got about halfway, ok; I completed the first paragraph, when I thought maybe I should refute this.

The article he penned, or typed, was about the progressives’ economic hero John Maynard Keynes, the trade deficit & exports vs. imports. He asks himself, “What would Keynes do?”, regarding the economic malaise the country finds itself in.

Geoghegan writes, “For Keynes, the problem would be not just getting people into stores, or even getting employers to hire but getting our plutocracy (the rule or control of society by the wealthy) to invest. It’s not just our jobless rate but also our huge trade deficit that would appall him. He’d be aghast to see the United States bogged down in so much debt compared to the rest of the world.” I’m sure he would be aghast. I’m aghast by the debt we’ve accumulated also. Our private sector plutocracy, as he calls it, would love nothing more than to invest in this country. Unfortunately, like American Airlines (a sinking ship), the U.S. is not the greatest investment right now.

He continues, “Especially in a recession, he hated to see a country with a trade debt, or trade deficit, which arises when a country’s imports exceed exports. Indeed, when the trade deficit is as jaw dropping as the US trade deficit is now; it is harder to use Keynesian deficit spending to push employment back up.” Show me a single instance in history where Keynesian deficit spending has ever worked & hasn’t exasperated the problem. Of course imports exceed exports. Remember, we don’t make anything in this country anymore.

“The merchandise trade deficit of the United States is scary: $680.9 billion as of July 9…. It’s as if I’m pressing on the sucking chest wound in the world economy”, Geoghegan explains. That is a quite large number. Almost as much a the failed Keynesian style porkulus package with the Shovel Ready jobs that weren’t so shovel ready.

He states, “Actually, the trade deficit might be worse if there was full employment, our supposed goal, since we would have the money to buy even more hardware from abroad as we bite into more sandwiches at Jimmy John’s.” Never had a sandwich at Jimmy Johns, but now I know full employment is apparently a bad thing.

“Underneath that, there is a still bigger deficit, with US corporations outsourcing so many jobs. Here is a headline from the Wall Street Journal on April 19: BIG US FIRMS SHIFT HIRING ABROAD. During the 2000s, the Journal reports, while US multinationals have fired 2.9 million workers here, they have hired 2.4 million abroad. By the 1930s Keynes had notoriously turned against free trade and was giving lectures on the need for “national self-sufficiency. The one big (and smart) idea of absolute monarchy was to push exports over imports”, Geoghegan exclaims. That’s a lot of workers. It is very interesting that he never goes on to explain just why that might be.

An Absolute Monarch


“Keynes would not believe how Obama, the Tea Party, the Democrats, the Republicans—our leaders—pay so little attention to our whopping trade deficit, as if it had nothing at all to do with our slump.” Well, he got 3 out of 4 right.

He continues with, “But until we bring down the trade deficit and fix our balance of payments, there is no way out of debt.” (Balance of Payments: A summary of the international transactions of a country over a period of time including commodity and service transactions, capital transactions, and gold movements). I agree with that. “ It’s simple arithmetic”, he writes. “Somebody in this country is going to have to go into debt to make the balance-of-payments balance. Who’s going to do it? It’s the government or us. One day Uncle Obama or his successor will say, “I’m done going into debt to make the balance ‘balance.’ It’s your turn to go into debt to make the balance ‘balance.’”

Ok, I’ve had enough. These socialists will never get it. All that we’ve seen in this article is the typical lefty clap-trap. Somebody has to go into debt? Really? That’s the only answer?
There wasn’t a single word regarding cutting spending or the size of our bloated government. Not one word! How is going into debt going to balance anything, ever? No explanation of why jobs are leaving this country. Here’s the explanation. We are one, if not the most regulatorily burdened countries on earth. We have the highest corporate tax rate in the world. Gee, I wonder why companies are packing up? Why would anyone want to start a company without knowing what they have to comply with next year or even next week? Of course we have to import everything. Nanny government won’t allow us to make anything (Gibson Guitars, etc).

We did learn that an Absolute Monarchy can be a good thing. That’s something.

This is just another shining example that Keynes was an idiot & so is this author. I need an aspirin.

Caliphate, Schmalimate

Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT), Arabic for “Party of Liberation,” is an international organization that seeks to establish a global Islamic caliphate. Established in Jerusalem in 1953, HT claims to be a political organization “whose ideology is Islam.” A closer look at the group’s ideology and international activity reveals that HT not only promotes Islam as a way of life, but is also fundamentally opposed to capitalism and democracy and is explicitly hostile toward Israel and Jews.

The American branch of HT convened its 2011 Khilafah Conference, titled, “Revolution in the Muslim World: From Tyranny to Triumph,” on June 26, 2011, in the Chicago suburb of Oak Brook, Illinois. It is increasing its efforts to spread its message and recruit members in the U.S.

Look, they have free babysitting!

Speakers at the conference focused on HT’s larger agenda of establishing a global Islamic caliphate, which entails ousting existing governments.

One session at the conference, titled “Breaking the Shackles,” gave voice to the organization’s idea that capitalist and nationalist systems of the West are “enemies to Islam,” and the only solution is for a unified Islamic state to replace such systems with “the rule of Allah,” Sharia, and the Sunnah. The speaker at this session, identified as Brother Abu Saib, offered the February 2011 ousting of the Mubarak regime in Egypt as evidence of the Islamic nation awakening and starting on a path toward establishing a Caliphate.

Are you hearing this Bill Kristol and all other know it alls who were swooning of the democratic uprising that is the “Arab Spring”?

The last two sessions, “Shaking the Thrones” and “Life Under the Khilafah,” examined the state of suffering the Unmah (Arabic for community or nation) and Islam have fallen into since the abolition of the Ottoman Caliphate, and how everyday life will be governed once Islamic law is implemented worldwide with the rise of a new Caliphate. One of the speakers, identified as Abu Atallah, emphasized that the rise of the Caliphate would mean that borders become obsolete, nationalist ideology would be abandoned and Muslims would control the military.

The meeting ended with organizers stressing the importance of pushing forward for a unified Islamic state, and that the “Qur’an is a message for all mankind and a solution to all of man’s problems.” This was detailed in a pamphlet, “Khilafah State Structure: Introduction to the Constitution,” that was handed out during the conference.

A few of the more fun articles of the Constitution are as follows:
(I could see James Madison authoring these, or maybe Abdul Madison)

Article 1 states that ‘aqeedah (Islamic creed) will be the sole basis of the State’s foundation. The government’s structure in its entirety can only exist if it is from the Islamic ‘aqeeda.

Article 7 describes that the State will be charged with implementing “divine law”, therefore those “guilty of apostasy (desertion from one’s religion) from Islam are to be executed according to the rule of apostasy.”

In the “Army” section, Article 56 states, “Jihad is a compulsory duty for all Muslims. Military training is therefore compulsory. Thus, every male Muslim, fifteen years and over, is obliged to undergo military training in readiness for jihad. This sounds just like our Constitution.

Articles 108-118 describe the social system of the Caliphate would strictly enforce gender segregation between the two sexes, and while women will have the same rights and obligations as men, a woman’s primary role “is that of a mother and wife,” and she may not hold any positions of power within the structure of governance.

With regards to Israel and the Caliphate’s policy toward the Jewish state, Section 4 states that there can be no peace, and that “a state of war must be taken as the basis for all dispositions with them. They must be dealt with as if a rear war existed between us – whether an armistice exists or not.”

At the 2009 Conference, Abdul-Adil also urged the audience to never “stop calling for Islam as a complete way of life…unless and until Islam becomes victorious or we die in the attempt.” During a question and answer session following his presentation, Abdul-Adil was asked if sharia, or Islamic law, would trump the U.S. Constitution. “Yes, it would be gone,” Abdul-Adil replied.

Frankly, I don’t know what all the fuss is about. They obviously just want peace & to live side by side with their Christian & Jewish brethren.

Alice in Solyndraland

By this time most everyone knows about the Solar Company Solyndra & the hundreds of millions of our dollars that were flushed down the toilet.

Let’s take a leap down the rabbit hole. But first a pop quiz.

Who said this?

“The true engine of economic growth will always be companies like Solyndra . . . The future is here. We’re poised to transform the ways we power our homes and our cars and our businesses. And we’re poised to lead our competitors in the development of new technologies and products and businesses. And we are poised to generate countless new jobs, good-paying middle-class jobs, right here in the United States of America.”

You guessed it. It was King Barack in May of 2010. Too bad that wasn’t the Daily Double.

Oops. I forgot Alice is still falling. Let’s see what she has uncovered.

The Washington Post wrote, “Solyndra company executives ramped up their Washington lobbying efforts, hiring a former Senate aide to work with the White House and the Energy Department. . . .
[P]ublic records show that since 2008, Solyndra has spent more than $1 million on lobbying inside the Beltway.
Lobbying expenditures of $160,000 a year in 2008 and 2009 accelerated as Solyndra’s financial and political troubles mounted. By 2010, such spending had grown to $550,000. So far this year, Solyndra has reported spending $220,000, but that number will grow as more reports filter in.”

Senate Aide, eh. Who might that be? His name is Steve McBee. McBee, a former top staffer for Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., and powerful House Appropriations Committee member Rep. Norm Dicks, D-Wash., reportedly wrote key provisions in the stimulus bill to open the spigot of green corporate welfare.

Want a couple more lobbyists? How about former John Kerry aide Andy Quinn and Gregg Rothschild, a former chief of staff for top Democrat Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland.

Finally we have the White Rabbit, George Kaiser. Kaiser, Solyndra’s chief investor, was a top 2008 fundraiser for Obama and met with White House officials in 2009 as the loan was in the approval process. He was also a bundler for Obama’s 2008 campaign, gathering over $50,000 in campaign contributions. Kaiser, together with Solyndra executives and board members, donated $87,050 to Obama’s campaign.

By sheer coincidence, A $10,000 donation to the Urban Health Initiative at the University of Chicago Medical Center appears on the Kaiser group’s 2009 tax forms. Who created The Urban Initiative? Oh gee, Michelle Obama. Weird, huh.

The Washington Post also reported in 2008 that Valerie Jarrett was the medical center’s chairwoman, and David Axelrod provided community support-building services.

Like Alice, my head is now spinning. I can’t go any deeper.

Crime & Punishment, NOT!

Raj Rajaratnam

Insider trading is a crime & should be. Those who do it should be caught & suffer the consequences. It’s not fair to the rest of us individual investors or “Home Gamers”, as Cramer would call us. There have been many a high-profile insider trading case in the news. Rajaratnam (pictured here), poor Martha Stewart, Levine, Siegel, Boesky and Milken.

More recently, (pictured below) James Fleishman of Primary Global Research, Zvi Goffer, a former hedge fund trader at the Galleon Group, and Craig Drimal, a former hedge fund trader and cohort of Mr. Goffer, all indicted for insider trading.

What do all these scumbags have in common? Well, they’re all scumbags of course. What else? Yes, you got it. None of them are members of Congress or the Senate. Unfortunately for them, they are also not Congressional or Senatorial staffers. If they had been, they’d still be scumbags, but they would not be ex-cons, current cons, or soon to be cons.

You see, members of Congress and their staffers are exempt from insider trading laws. How convenient. Just another example of “Do as I say, not as I do”.

Congressional members have many opportunities to obtain nonpublic information that could affect a stock’s price. They may, for example be aware of impending tax legislation that will pass and which will affect a company’s stock positively or negatively. Similarly, they may be aware of imminent approval of a new drug or the award of a new government contract.

A 2004 Georgia State University study revealed that Senators received annual investment returns 25% higher than that of average households. No doubt they are just better investors.

An analysis of financial-disclosure forms for 2008 and 2009 compiled by the website LegiStorm shows that several hundred congressional aides bought or sold stocks. At least 72 traded the stocks of companies their bosses write laws for.

This is not a Democrat or Republican problem. There are crooks on both sides.

One example in 2009: Senate Banking Committee member Mike Crapo, a Republican from Idaho, was involved in discussing “stress tests” on banks such as Bank of America. His aide Karen Brown traded the company’s stock on several occasions in the weeks before May 7, 2009. When BofA surged thanks to a press release on its stress-test result, Ms. Brown made a nifty profit.

In May a study of some 16,000 stock transactions carried out by House members was published in the journal Business and Politics. This detailed analysis showed that the investment portfolios of House members beat the market by about six points a year. (Democrats did especially well, outperforming by some nine points a year, while Republicans topped the average investor by only two percent annually.) Senators apparently do even better: “their portfolios show some of the highest excess returns ever recorded over a long period of time, significantly outperforming even hedge fund managers,” noted the journal, citing a previously published study.

Every so often a group of lawmakers typically numbering in the single digits proposes that Congress be subjected to the same insider-trading laws as you or me. The proposals are always ignored. Not once has any such bill ever made it to the floor of either house.

Yes We Cain!

Herman Cain stunned everyone over the weekend handily winning the Florida Straw Poll. What does this mean? I wish it meant we have a new front-runner, but of course, it does not. The major media & the pundits on both sides won’t allow it. Maybe they’re just all racists? Why not, it works for some, but not for an Uncle Tom like Cain. That’s the left’s view, I’m sure.

The winner of the Iowa Straw Poll (Bachmann) was the same candidate that came in dead last this weekend. Does that tell us anything? Probably not.

Could these polls be telling us that, just maybe, we’re getting tired of having our candidates picked for us & having to hold our collective noses at the ballot box? I sure hope so.

It could be that the tide is changing if these real common sense conservatives keep coming through like this. If it starts to shape up like that, we will have a Battle Royal on our hands. Forget about the left. The get-along, smarter than us riff-raff, talking heads of the republican establishment will stop at nothing to buoy support for a middle of the road candidate. He can, of course, be a fiscal hawk but he must stay away from the real sticky issues. Issues like Global Warming, Illegal Immigration, Abortion, homosexual marriage, etc. They’ll tell us it is just about the economy. That’s all people really care about, don’t ya know.

Well I like Herman Cain. He hasn’t been jaded by politics. He speaks plain english, so we know where he stands. He’s not perfect & doesn’t try to be (Mitt). He’s a real business man. He is charismatic & funny. He doesn’t take any crap. He appears not to have a thousand handlers wrongly advising him. Check out his campaign site & see for yourself. http://www.hermancain.com/h

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus says the GOP has a great field of presidential candidates but that there’s still time for someone else to get in, hint, hint. That sounds like a non-conservative hoping someone (Chris Christie) will ride in & save us from ourselves. Christie is tough & doesn’t take any crap from the left, but he’s not a conservative.

Conservative columnist Bobby Eberle writes, “So… was a vote for Cain a vote for “none of the above”? Yes, it was, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Ok… before you freak out, keep reading. If “none of the above” can win a poll, it means that people like Perry and Romney need to do a better job on the issues. It also means that “none of the above” represents a sizable bloc of voters who want someone who represents them. But most importantly, “none of the above” gives people an opportunity to hear more about a no-nonsense, conservative. “None of the above” now has a name, and his name is Herman Cain.”

Maybe I just misunderstood Mr. Eberle, but why couldn’t those votes have gone to Herman Cain as Herman Cain? The others don’t need to do a better job on the issues. We understand their stances just fine sir & I believe a lot of us reject them.

Is Herman Cain my man? I don’t know yet but he looks good so far & no one looks any better. And by the way, he could wipe the floor with brother Barack. That I know.

Why don’t the Bill Kristols, Karl Roves, David Brooks, Fred Barnes, George Wills et al, let us real conservatives decide for ourselves. We are the Tea Party movement & don’t need a leader, nor want one. We desire a candidate, not to lead us, but that most closely reflects all of our views & values, not just the fiscal. He doesn’t need to be perfect. Ronald Reagan wasn’t.

Give a Little, Take a Little

Gov. Rick Scott


I received an email recently entitled, “Hooray for Florida”. I like Florida so I read it. It was about a law Governor Rick Scott signed regarding welfare reform. That sounded great so I read on. The email says that welfare recipients must have a drug test to receive benefits. Well, this just keeps getting better. Hooray indeed. Let’s just say I’m a skeptic. I decided to look further into the story. Much to my surprise, NOT, it’s not what it appears. With politicians, it never is. Here’s the real story.

Various articles explain basically the same thing such as, “The controversial new law has sparked national debate and is already the subject of a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union.” What a shocker, eh? “The group deems the tests unconstitutional for violating the random search and seizure clause. Supporters, including Gov. Rick Scott, say the tests prevent taxpayer money from funding drug habits, but critics say the law unfairly stereotypes the poor.” Howard Simon, Executive Director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida, said in a statement, “The wasteful program created by this law subjects Floridians who are impacted by the economic downturn, as well as their families, to a humiliating search of their urine and body fluids without cause or even suspicion of drug abuse.”

So far, this is pretty decent. The ACLU is upset. That’s a plus. Let’s take a crack at the ACLU & other libs’ claims. First off, the tests aren’t random. Everyone who wants welfare gets tested. It’s also completely optional. If you don’t wish to be tested, don’t apply for welfare. Second, no, it stereotypes the poor quite fairly. As Ben Franklin said, “I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it.” As for the ACLU statement, really, humiliating search of bodily fluids? That’s the best they can do? I think they take the fluids out first.

The articles go on to explain, “Those who test positive for drugs are ineligible for one year (or six months if they pass a drug course) for the temporary cash assistance. If they fail a second time, they are ineligible for three years. Ok, wait. Temporary cash assistance? I knew this was too good to be true. This isn’t welfare as a whole. This is just a small slice of the overall welfare program. It gets better, or worse, depending on your point of view. “A third-party designated by the family can then sign up for the funds so the money is still passed onto the children. But that person also must be drug tested and fill out lengthy paperwork, which can delay a family from getting money for 30-60 days,” So, it’s a crock. It sounds good, but as usual, isn’t. It’s like an alcoholic with a designated driver. He’s still an alcoholic. Designated by the family? You mean the family whose members just failed the drug test? Who makes sure the money gets to the children?

A good point was unexpectedly made. “Is there any interest in finding if money by these applicants is being diverted to alcohol abuse, which can be far more destructive and certainly expensive, in terms of money being diverted from their dependents?” asked Rep. Steve Perman, D-Boca Raton. Wow! I agree with a democrat.

I realize this law can be looked at as a step forward or in the right direction, but if they’re going to do this, they have to know the left & the press, no matter what, will hammer them. Knowing that, they must go for everything. Not just a little slice.

Maybe it’s me. Maybe I can’t be satisfied but I am just sick & tired of half measures & loopholes. Today, more than ever, we need to take some dynamite to the granite sentinels of liberalism, not just chips off the edges. A good start is no longer good enough. Time is no longer on our side.

Will the Real Palestinians Please Stand Up?

Ambassador Abdullah Abdullah

So I’m reading an article in the Daily Star of Lebanon. What, did you let your subscription lapse again? It was an update on the Palestinian statehood saga. The article was centered around the Palestine Ambassador to Lebanon, Abdullah Abdullah, describing how their now famous refugees will not be citizens of the proposed state of Palestine.

What a great name; Abdullah Abdullah. I wonder if Madonna’s last name is Madonna & she just dropped it.

Anyway, my first reaction was disbelief. After all this pushing & posturing to achieve the dream state, they wouldn’t allow their own people to become citizens?

The article explains; The ambassador unequivocally says that Palestinian refugees would not become citizens of the sought for U.N.-recognized Palestinian state, an issue that has been much discussed. “They are Palestinians, that’s their identity,” he says. “But … they are not automatically citizens.” This would not only apply to refugees in countries such as Lebanon, Egypt, Syria and Jordan or the other 132 countries where Abdullah says Palestinians reside. Abdullah said that “even Palestinian refugees who are living in [refugee camps] inside the [Palestinian] state, they are still refugees. They will not be considered citizens.” Abdullah said that the new Palestinian state would “absolutely not” be issuing Palestinian passports to refugees.

My second thought was, how is this not front page news worldwide? What the heck is going on here? This nonsense has been going on for decades. How many have died in this conflict? Now no one finds this newsworthy?

Citizens in Waiting

So I read on. The light bulb went on when I read; “Neither this definitional status nor U.N. statehood”, Abdullah says, “would affect the eventual return of refugees to Palestine. How the issue of the right of return will be solved I don’t know, it’s too early [to say], but it is a sacred right that has to be dealt with and solved [with] the acceptance of all.” He says statehood “will never affect the right of return for Palestinian refugees.”

There it is. It’s like connect the dots. Maybe Palestinian citizenship would hinder the Right of Return. Abdullah knows or at least suspects if the refugees become Palestinian citizens, they give up their right of return to Israel.

What I and others who have followed this have always known, this is the end game for the radicals running this whole thing. It has been going on since 1948. The Moslems had a chance to save their Palestinian brethren back then but chose to try to wipe out Israel instead. The supposed movements leaders probably find refugees, rather than citizens, a more useful tool in realizing its ultimate goal of destroying Israel, as they can then demand “refugees” be resettled in Israel (as opposed to their own prospective territories), thereby creating a disproportionate and destructive demographic for the Jewish state.

They may have finally figured out they can’t defeat Israel militarily, so they’ll flood the country with refugees & bring it down economically.
