Oh How The Pals. Lie

After the Areikat fiasco, when this senior Pal. official pronounced, yet another time, an apartheid racist policy of not allowing Jews to reside in "Palestine" ("Maen Rashid Areikat, the Palestine Liberation Organization's ambassador to the U.S., was described in a USA Today report early in the day as saying that the future Palestine should be free of Jews. "After the experience of the last 44 years of military occupation and all the conflict and friction, I think it would be in the best interest of the two people to be separated," USA Today quoted Areikat as saying."...Such a state would be the first to officially prohibit Jews or any other faith since Nazi Germany, which sought a country that was judenrein, or cleansed of Jews, said Elliott Abrams, a former U.S. National Security Council official.), Nabil Shaath went on the Galei Tzahal Radio, after realizing what great harm had been done by that statement.

Arutz 7 has it:

In an interview with Army Radio Sunday, Palestinian Authority negotiator Nabil Sha'ath...was asked, what about comments made by PA officials that no Jews would be allowed to live in a PA state? Sha'ath said that he had “checked those comments, and I found that they were inaccurate. No Palestinian official said this. What they said was exactly what [Defense Minister Ehud] Barak said, that at the beginning of our state the two populations should be separated.” [???]

When asked whether he would agree to allowing current Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria to remain in their homes, he said “if they act like all other citizens and buy the land and accept Palestinian citizenship, why not?”


Presented with statements attributed to the Palestinian Authority envoy to the United States last week that a Palestinian state would be without Jews, Shaath said that Maen Areikat "never said 'Jewish free,'" but rather "that at the beginning of our peace, we want to separate."

Asked whether settlers would be allowed to live in a future Palestinian state, he added, "If [settlers] decide to accept Palestinian citizenship and buy the territory that they have and live as individual citizens, then why not?"


Well, let's remember that the

Palestinian Authority prohibits purchase of goods produced in Israeli settlements

and taking that a step further:

In violation of international law, the Palestinian Authority bars any Jews from purchasing property and from residing on and developing any property they own.

Let's make that plain and simple:

Palestinian land laws...prohibit Palestinians from selling Palestinian territory lands to "any man or judicial body [corporation] of Israeli citizenship living in Israel or acting on its behalf." These land laws were originally enacted during the Jordanian occupation of the West Bank (1948–1967), and are deemed by the Palestinian Authority as being necessary to prevent further expansion of Israeli settlements in the Palestinian territories and to "halt the spread of moral, political and security corruption". The law carries a sentence of the death penalty.

Why didn't the Galei Tzahal interviewer know to ask about that?

Pals. lie and prevaricate.


And LBD points out:

Shaath was also repeating the policy set by Abbas in December 2010:

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas announced on Saturday that when a Palestinian state is established, it will have no Israelis in it. “We have frankly said, and always will say: If there is an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital, we won’t agree to the presence of one Israeli in it,” Abbas told reporters in Ramallah.
