Narwani: "Palestinians Don't Need To Do Diddly"

Huffington Post blogger demonstrates her usual even handed approach to the peace process with the following comment:

Oh really? That isn't what President Obama thinks, lady. Or the United Nations. Or the European Union. The truth is that there is quite a bit the Palestinians need to be doing, such as recognizing Israel as a Jewish state, guaranteeing security, and so forth.

I notice further that Ms. Narwani, who is supposed to be a reasonable journalist, resorts back to the usual Palsbara drone of "Israel is the Occupier, Palestinians are the Occupied." In fact the whole post sounds like a copy/paste job. Maybe she got it from the Hamas leaders she interviews.

Finally, Narwani exposes her ignorance about international law and UN resolutions regarding this conflict. Israel has never been required to withdraw unilaterally, or even do anything without getting something in return. If she would like to provide the chapter and verse, consider that a challenge. I do think it is interesting that she thinks only people who commit 'atrocities' against Palestinians need punishment, and not Israelis, and that only Palestinians deserve compensation for their loss of property. I guess not all refugees are created equal.

  1. I don't know how they allow a blatant antisemite like Sharmoota plague the Huffington post. It makes me sick to my stomach to read her interpenetration of what is or isn't antisemitic.

  2. If you believe Narwani, then why are the Palestinians talking to Israel? Of course the vast majority of Palestinian Arabs believe no talks are necessary; just a resolve for more jihad.

    That is why the peace talks are doomed to fail.

Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
