AIPAC, Israel--and a Palestinian state?

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is a very large organization. It attracts thousands to its annual convention.

Its mission is clear. It works to "strengthen, protect and promote the US-Israel relationship" ( aipac, home,  about). It calls itself "America's pro-Israel lobby" (ibid).

On  Sunday, March 4, 2018, Howard Kohr, the chief of this Jewish lobby, stood before an annual AIPAC convention audience estimated at 18,000 and sought to strengthen the US-Israel relationship by calling for the establishment of a Palestinian state (David Rosenberg, "Why is AIPAC pushing Palestinian statehood?", arutzsheva, March 5, 2018). 

Many in Israel have a problem with Jews calling for a Palestinian state. You see, many in Israel aren't sure Palestinians really want a state.

The Palestinian Authority certainly says it wants to establish a state. But does it?

What you are about to see is simple. It's a poster. It asks a simple question. 

This graphic below comes from the blogsite, elderofszyion. It was posted originally there January 19, 2014. Its point is still pertinent. It reminds us of how people behave when they truly want a state.

If the 'Palestinians' really wanted a state, would they make so many demands?
