Man, Sharmine Narwani is writing so many informative comments, it is like she is providing us with enough material for this blog all by herself! Check out the latest:
-"I'm right. You're wrong."
-"My side is the righteous one. Your side is not."
-"We get everything we want. You get nothing. There is no room for compromise. If you don't like it, deal with it."
-"There is no partner for peace on the other side."
-"Give me what I want now, before I even think about giving you anything. Otherwise someone might get hurt."
Now, if it were someone on the Israeli side who was talking like this, what would we call them? I imagine the most common labels would be "conservative" and "hardliner." It is interesting, though not surprising, to see Ms. Narwani exposed as what she is: A pro-Palestinian hardliner. Not different in any real way from Avigdor Lieberman, she is even more hardline than Abbas. Which is saying something!
More Palestinian than the Palestinians? In a big way. According to an AWRAD poll, two-thirds of Palestinians said that adjusting "the 1967 border through agreement to equivalent exchange of land" would be at least "tolerable." Even more pointedly, nearly half (47%) would also acquiesce to "moving [Israeli] settlers to large blocs and exchanging land." Not that you would know that from listening to Sharmine Narwani, of course. She is still up on her soapbox demanding ethnic cleansing of Jews from the West Bank. Her way or the highway. I guess she learned it from the best.
