RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — The Palestinian president returned triumphantly to the West Bank on Sunday, receiving a boisterous welcome from thousands of cheering supporters at a rally celebrating his people’s new acceptance to the United Nations.

An Israeli decision to cut off a cash transfer to the financially troubled Palestinian Authority, following an earlier decision to build thousands of new homes in Jewish settlements, failed to put a damper on the celebrations.

But Palestinian officials acknowledged they were undecided on what to do with their newfound status, and were waiting for upcoming Israeli elections and new ideas from President Barack Obama before deciding how to proceed.

    You are on your own Jordyptian sand nazis. Let Comintern be the sole teat from which you suckle. Maybe they can build you some more greenhouses to destroy.

    Huh, so you mean actions have consequences? I wonder that they expect Oblarney to do for them now?

    Here in the states, the poor economy is Bush’s fault. In the Middle East, the Palestinian conflict is Bibi’s fault.

    I detect a kindred spirit between libshits and terrorists.

    It seems logical to me that Israel would quit paying jizya to Palestine. Israel should not be expected to be a dhimmi nation like America has become. It goes against the commandment – Thou shall have no gods before me (יהוה‎) – because paying tribute to any islamist state is tantamount to acknowledging that islam’s allah (Satan) is the supreme being.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jizya
    Under Islamic law, jizya or jizyah is a per capita tax levied on a section of an Islamic state’s non-Muslim citizens.

    Wow. I bet that will be helpful.

    I think they must have Barry confused with Valerie Jarret.

    Funny how the Palestinians have hundreds of millions of dollars (I don’t have an amount, but I am sure it is in the billions, but I’m shooting low) given to them and they still live in squalor. Until they question why there will not be peace.

    … I know, they will never question why because the people keeping them in poverty have made a perfect boogeyman in Israel.
