      So Says Abbas


      So, it is to be "no Jews allowed".

      Mahmoud Abbas of something called the Palestinain Authority is quoted by local Arab news sources as declaring that no Jews will be permitted to reside in Judea, Samaria and the new Jerusalem neighborhoods once peace is agreed upon.

      I wonder where all the Arabs of Israel will move to?

      That is a logical question, no?

      After all, we wouldn't want to be part of a discriminatory policy.

      Think about that.
