OMG! PA threatens to quit America. Are we supposed to be afraid?
So it’s come to this. The PA (Palestinian Authority) is upset with us…so upset that its leaders are threatening to cut ties with us here in the United States.
All that started soon after President Trump delivered on his promise to name Jerusalem the capital of Israel…to which we can only say Amen.
Come to think of it, this is actually the tenth time the Palestinian Arabs have made that threat…but who’s counting?
More to the point – who cares?
Is there a downside to this? I see nothing but good. Are we supposed to be afraid?
I think Freud talked about this; about people with a false sense of importance. He did not have the Palestinian Arabs specifically in mind.
That’s because there were no such people in his day, or any day. There is no such thing as a Palestinian people…other, perhaps, than language that appears in David Lean’s “Lawrence of Arabia”…of “a little people, a silly people, greedy, barbarous and cruel.”
Or think of the movie “The Mouse That Roared” to get some idea of silly people that plan an attack upon the United States only to get some attention.
