I am a Palestinian-American, the son of refugees from 1948. I am shocked and deeply offended that the Palestinian mission to the UN would collaborate so blatantly with the United States to stop the Qatari resolution in support of stranded Palestinians at the Egypt-Gaza border.
When will we realize the power we have and seize it, instead of continuing such treacherous collaboration? Why can't you take a principled stand for those poor, suffering people in the hot Egyptian desert. Please, Please do something useful and principled in your positions of power at the UN.
We need Palestinian representatives in all world bodies to remain principled toward our cause-- if you want to reap the rewards of American relationships, utilize the hundreds of thousands of successful Palestinians in this country, not the racist, and zionist white powers in this country.
