Why Do 80% of Palestinians Support Murder? (24 December 2014)
"In most parts of the world, it's not easy to find a major issue on which 80% of the population agrees. An election victory in the United States is considered a 'landslide' if the winner receives more than about 60% of the vote. ... But among Palestinian Arabs in Judea-Samarian (the West Bank) and Gaza, it turns out there is one issue on which there is more support than any other: randomly murdering Israeli Jews..."

The Truth Behind the Palestinian Water Libels (24 February 2014)
"A significant public debate has been sparked by the assertion of European parliament President Martin Schulz that the amount of water available to the average Israeli unfairly overwhelms the amount of water available to the average Palestinian. The main issue that should be discussed - and has not been sufficiently analyzed - is: What are the causes of the Palestinian water supply problems?..."

UCLA's Having 'Palestine Awareness Week'. Let's Help Them Out (17 February 2011)

"In an interview posted on the liberal Arab website Aafaq on October 4, 2010, Palestinian reformist Zainab Rashid said that the Arab dictatorial regimes exploit the Palestinian cause in order to divert attention from their own domestic problems and suppress initiatives of democratization and reform. She also opposed the Islamization of the Palestinian cause, saying the Palestinian issue will never be resolved as long as it is construed as a religious struggle destined to continue until Judgment Day. She argued that violence and extremism in the Arab and Islamic world stem from Islam's religious and legal texts, and called upon Arab intellectuals to renounce such texts, and to struggle for one supreme goal: 'the secularization of the state and of society – which is to say, complete separation of religion and state.' Following are excerpts from the interview..."

Who Needs a Palestinian State? (18 May 2009)

Palestinians: 'Peoplehood' based on a Big Lie (31 March 2008)

Palestinian People Do Not Exist (27 July 2003)
"Palestine has never existed...as an autonomous entity. There is no language known as Palestinian. There is no distinct Palestinian culture. There has never been a land known as Palestine governed by Palestinians. Palestinians are Arabs, indistinguishable from Jordanians (another recent invention), Syrians, Lebanese, Iraqis, etc. Keep in mind that the Arabs control 99.9% of the Middle East lands. Israel represents one-tenth of 1% of the landmass. But that's too much for the Arabs. They want it all. And that is ultimately what the fighting in Israel is about today...No matter how many land concessions the Israelis make, it will never be enough..."
"Palestine Is Our Land and the Jews Are Our Dogs" (10 January 2003 / Revised 15 June 2003)
"Until last spring I held what people call a pro-Palestinian position. Like many intellectuals I had adopted Arafat's cause, taking what I believed was a principled stand that blamed Israel for the conflict in the Middle East, and especially for the suffering of the Palestinians. ... In April 2002, I noticed that media coverage of the fighting in Jenin was manifestly one sided (against Israel). I began to look into this and also into the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict..."

"[Is it] 'understandable' that, in 1929, Arab mobs attempted to exterminate the Jews in British Mandate 'Palestine'? ...
