Yup. All the rioters in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Yemen, Lebanon, Iraq, Bahrain and elsewhere are really upset over - the "occupation."
Erekat said Israel had been occupying Palestine since 1967, "and this is considered an offense to humanity. Israeli authorities have signed many agreements, and never committed to them."
In a statement, he called the occupation a main source of violence and chaos in the Mideast.
But Erekat did talk about the idiotic Mohammed video, in typically bombastic terms:
Separately, Erekat addressed the growing outrage over an anti-Muslim video clip apparently produced in the United States.
"All abuses and attempts against Islam cannot be justified by freedom of expression. The real names for such abuses and attacks are 'racist,' 'terrorist,' and 'fascist,'" Erekat said.
Now, which is worse: a stupid video no one saw until Muslims broadcast it on their TV, or the now-daily explicit anti-semitism and incitement in the Arab media that are read by hundreds of thousands?
And why is it that not a single Western journalist is smart enough to ask Erekat the liar such a simple question?
