Their Leadership (2001)
Now, in Gaza, the Hamas “leadership” terrorizes the local population.
Now, on the “West Bank” Abbas (instead of Arafat) continues the PLO policy of crushing local dissent and promoting incitement against Jews and Israel while abandoning “talks”.

So what do the “Palestinians” really think? What would local Arabs say about their “Palestinian Leaders”, if they were allowed to speak openly? Well, there’s this recent U.S. poll of East Jerusalem Arabs:
U.S. poll: 35% Palestinians in East Jerusalem prefer Israeli citizenship
WASHINGTON – “A surprising 35% of East Jerusalem’s Palestinian residents would prefer to live as Israeli citizens under Israeli rule if the city was permanently divided in a future settlement and only 31% would opt to live in an independent Palestine while 30% chose not to answer.
But as many as 39% said they believe most Palestinians would prefer Israeli citizenship.
These results likely to worry a Palestinian leadership were found in a recent U.S. survey of public opinion in East Jerusalem’s 19 Palestinian neighborhoods.
The survey, which observers consider credible, was conducted by Pechter Middle East Polls for the Council of Foreign Relations jointly with Dr. Nabil Kukali head of the Ramallah-based Palestinian Centre for Public Opinion.
The study further indicated that Palestinian residents of East Jerusalem choosing Israeli citizenship value the freedom of movement their blue Israeli residency cards give them in Israel, the higher income, health and welfare benefits obtained and better job opportunities.
As many as 40% said that if their neighborhood was transferred to Palestine they would relocate their homes to areas of the city under Israeli sovereignty. Only 29% said the reverse, that they would relocate their homes to areas transferred to Palestinian rule.” -more

House of Blues In my not so humble opinion, if NY State had such a law, we probably would not have to put up with Hilarious Clinton. And Bobbie Kennedy might still be alive.
Rahm Emanuel, in the midst of a rough-and-tumble campaign, was just denied a spot on the mayoral ballot. Was the move Chicago politics as usual, or has Emanuel’s Judaism come into play?
Will the real Chicago please stand up? Is it the post-racial, post-ethnic, post-religious mecca of hope—the city from which President Barack Obama is launching his re-election campaign? Or is it the corrupt place that is called Chicagoland, where police brutality, cronyism, and prejudice run rampant? More
