'Palestinians' seethe: The world is ignoring them because of Islamic State
The 'Palestinians' are seething
because the world is ignoring them in favor of the Islamic State terror organization.
The Palestinian Authority has expressed concern that the international coalition against Islamic State would divert attention from the Palestinian issue.
PA President Mahmoud Abbas chaired a meeting of the Palestinian leadership in Ramallah over the weekend to discuss the US efforts to form a coalition to fight Islamic State terrorists in Iraq and Syria.
Following the meeting, the Palestinian leaders said the “international campaign against terrorism was currently lacking a political dimension that would address the issues of the region.”
They also warned that the campaign did not deal with the “core and central issue, which is the Palestinian cause, so that it would be able to dry up the sources that feed terrorism and extremism.”
The Palestinian leaders called on Arab, regional and international parties to insist on linking their anti-terrorism campaign to a political dimension and not to focus solely on military and security aspects.
I know that much of the 'international community' mouths the platitude that the 'Palestinian problem' is central to anything and everything that goes on in the world. But does anyone actually believe it? Does anyone really think that if there were a 'Palestinian state,' Islamic State would go away?
