As Palestinian-State Fest Continues, So Do the Atrocities

There was a flurry of pro-Palestinian-state international activity this week. It basically happened in dizzying succession in the space of one day—Wednesday.

This was also a week in which two Islamic terrorist incidents, one in Australia and one in Pakistan, got some airplay. Seemingly the fact that the leading Palestinian movement is currently Hamas, an Islamic terrorist organization, should put a damper on pro-Palestinian-state activity. But it doesn’t—in the least.

So, on Wednesday, the European Parliament voted in favor of Palestinian statehood, the European Union’s second-highest court voted to remove Hamas from a terrorism blacklist, the Geneva Convention voted that no Israeli Jews should live in the West Bank and East Jerusalem (where it believes the Palestinian state should be), and Jordan, representing the Palestinians, submitted a draft resolution to the UN Security Council for a total Israeli withdrawal and a Palestinian state by the end of 2017.

In each of these cases there were mitigating factors.
