Top Palestinian Erekat tells Haley to "shut up"

Senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat on Saturday accused the Trump administration of trying depose the Palestinian leadership in a "coup" and told the "impudent" US envoy to the United Nations Nikki Haley she should "shut up" with her criticism of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

In actual news, the Israelis have legalized another settlement after a Palestinian murdered a settler.

Mansplaining ...

Though not a fan of it, I am going to guess, Laura approves of Trumps coarseness.

America has dictated the level of discourse, and this is what we get. smh.

I thought Jarrid was establishing an eternal peace down there. This is a funny kind of peace. Looks a lot more like increased aggression.

You don't understand. Jared HAS established eternal peace and, for a suitable fee, you can have some at Mar-A-Lago.

If you think that the PA has ever felt that the US was truly on its side then you haven't been paying attention. This particular tenor of discourse hasn't changed since May 14, 1948.

Really? Seems to me the Muslims get pissed and start killing people when they don't get their way. Finally someone is standing up to the child like Palestinians.

And of course Laura likes what was said to Haley. Imagine if that was said to Michelle Obama or some other liberal hands off woman, there would be screeching and knawing.

One lesson in being a woman, Laura.

If a muslim man can tell one American woman to shut up and you approve, then he can tell you to shut up when you say something he doesn't approve of.

Michelle Obama was never arrigant like Nikki Haley has

If I need lessons on being a woman it WON'T be from You

If a muslim man can tell one American woman to shut up and you approve, then he can tell you to shut up when you say something he doesn't approve of.

Many a right winged Christian men do the same. Are you going to chastise them too BTW You are essentially saying the same thing to me

Like we don't do it all the time.

Arrogant? Nikki is doing her job as U.N. envoy. Nikki is protecting the interests of the U.S. people to the U.N., which is anti U.S. and she is doing a good job.

Yes she is arrogant and she isn't representing the interests of the United States. It's not in our interest to make Jerusalem Israel's capital even if brain dead people can't see it.

We didn't. Israel did that. We are just recognizing it. The Muslims bully everyone into their point of view, it's good to see someone taking up for the U.S. for a change.

Your ignorance is blatantly obvious and this post proves it.

en.wikipedia.org

On December 6, 2017, US President Donald Trump formally announced the United States recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,[1] reversing nearly seven decades of American foreign policy, and ordered the planning of the relocation of the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.[2][3] However, following the announcement, and without mention, Trump also signed a further embassy waiver under the Jerusalem Embassy Act,[4] delaying the move, mandated by the Act, by at least six months.[5][4] Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel, welcomed the decision and praised the announcement.

The announcement was criticized by the majority of international leaders, including the European Union's foreign policy chief. A motion condemning the move was proposed in the United Nations Security Council, but was vetoed by the United States after a 14-1 vote. The United Nations General Assembly later passed a motion condemning Trump's announcement 128 to 9, with 35 abstentions.

"Seems to me the Muslims get pissed and start killing people when they don't get their way."

And why don't we Americans do that?
Oh... right... you kill for a living.
Awkward!

LOL what do you think you were doing when you deployed?

#14,

What do you expect them to do Laura? They are anti United States! Jerusalem has always been the capital, the world was just trying to placate the Muslims.

LOL what do you think you were doing when you deployed?

Responding to the unprovoked attack on 9/11
Helping keep the Afghan people from being under the thumb of the Taliban.

#17 | Posted by boaz at 2018-02-04 11:42 PM

"Jerusalem has always been the capital"

For both the Palestinians and the Israelis.
So, why only change recognition for the Israelis?
Oh, right, we don't even recognize Palestine.

#18 | Posted by snoofy at 2018-02-04 11:47 PM

Nikki was correct here, and it is stupid to say otherwise, just look at the Pal. president and the things he is saying.

#19 what things are you referring to?

Well I see you can't read the article, lazy I see.

#21 | Posted by Crassus at 2018-02-05 03:41 AM

it was a question about what you are referring to.
