The Washington Post's coverage of Israel's recent Jerusalem Day reveals the newspaper's bias against the Jewish state. The Post failed, yet again, to discern the true source of the Israel-Islamist conflict: Palestinian rejection of Jewish social and political equality.
Despite Mitri Raheb's assertions to the contrary, Jesus was not a Palestinian. Jesus was born in Bethlehem and grew up in Nazareth, two towns in Judea, preached in Galilee (an area inhabited by the Israelite tribe of Naphtali), and taught in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. None of these areas were called Palestine until long after Jesus’s crucifixion.
It doesn’t take a heart surgeon to figure out why there isn’t peace between Israelis and Palestinians. But the Washington Post seems to think otherwise.
Conventional wisdom claims that Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and Nazi collaborator, ceased to be a political force after World War II.

A recent poll of Palestinians was described, both by the pollsters and journalists, as showing overwhelming Palestinian support for a two-state solution. But a closer look at the question reveals otherwise.
