A Palestinian state will be democratic. FACT One of the assumptions of supporters of the two-state solution in the West is that a Palestinian state will be democratic. Given that no democratic Arab states exist in the Middle East; it is illogical to believe a Palestinian state would be any different.
All evidence to this point suggests that a Palestinian state would be yet another autocratic one that denies its people human and civil rights Americans take for granted.
Worse, it is likely a Palestinian state will become an autocratic theocracy similar to Saudi Arabia or another radical Islamic regime modeled after Iran. Abbas was elected inbut has repeatedly canceled elections, remaining in office more than a decade beyond the end of his term. Abbas does not allow freedom of speech, assembly, or religion.
Critics of the regime are jailed or, in some cases, executed. Such an entity already exists in the Gaza Strip where Hamas rules according to its interpretation of Islam and already resembles Iran in its treatment of women and persecution of Christians.

Abbas is viewed as secular but has become radicalized over the years and openly parrots radical Islamists. Human rights organizations and Western governments have turned a blind eye to their abuses and, rather than hold them to account, they have been encouraged to continue their undemocratic behavior.
FACT People of good will on all sides of the political spectrum recognize the difficulties Palestinians experience living under Israeli rule, and many would like to see the establishment of a Palestinian state coexisting beside Israel.
Numerous proponents of Palestinian rights, however, are selective in their concern for the Palestinian people.
The anti-Semitic BDS campaign advocates, along with many other sympathizers who cry crocodile tears for the Palestinians on campus and in the media, only care about Palestinian-Jewish interactions.
One longstanding example is the complete lack of interest in the treatment of Palestinians in refugee camps in Arab states.
Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians have languished in camps in JordanLebanon and Syria for decades. They remain in camps for one reason: Ironically, at a time when Arab refugees are being welcomed around the world albeit sometimes reluctantly by Western societiesPalestinian refugees remain unwanted in lands where they share the same language, religion and culture.
Why have Palestinians been treated so callously by their fellow Arabs? One historical reason is that the Arab states wanted to keep the refugee issue on the agenda to embarrass Israel and induce international pressure on Israel to allow them to immigrate.
The Arab hope was to flood Israel with hostile Palestinians who could act as a fifth-column weakening Israel from within. As the refugee population swelled to a population now exceeding five million, thanks to the absurd criteria of the UN Refugee Relief and Works Agency UNRWAthe Arabs expected the Jewish population to be exceeded by that of the Palestinians, effectively changing Israel into a Palestinian state.
For decades, the Arab goal was to destroy Israel and the Palestinians were used as pawns. That motivation has subsided in recent years after Egypt and Jordan signed peace treaties with Israel, and other Arab states began to recognize they share strategic interests with Israel.
Still, the Arab states would prefer to be rid of the Palestinians because they are held in low esteem despised in some placesthreaten local economies and are distrusted.
You never hear advocates for the Palestinians complain, however, about the virtual incarceration of Palestinians in camps by Arab leaders. According to UNRWA, they face a variety of employment restrictions, are denied social and civil rights, have no access to public social services and very limited access to public health or educational facilities.
Advocates for the Palestinians at the time were also silent. Today, the situation for Palestinians may be worse than ever, not in the West Bank or Gazabut in Syria.
Overlive in refugee camps, the largest of which, Yarmoukhas been besieged by the forces of both ISIS and the Assad regime. Most the estimatedPalestinians living in Syria are internally displaced, lacking access to even basic services and food.
Thousands more work in the settlements that Palestinian advocates thousands of miles away revile. Palestinians in the West Bank enjoy a higher standard of living than most Arabs outside the oil-rich Gulf States, and all their brethren in the refugee camps.
No Palestinians are being turned into refugees or killed as part of a deliberate campaign to eliminate them. In fact, in past peace talks, Israel expressed a willingness to accept as many asrefugees as part of a final settlement. Israel alone is vilified for its treatment of the Palestinians.
A global anti-Semitic BDS movement is intimidating artists who wish to visit and perform in Israel, seeking to deny Israelis or their supporters academic freedom and roiling campuses with disingenuous divestment resolutions.
Activists engage in die-ins, build mock walls, and disrupt speakers who dare to speak positively about Israel. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians face deprivation, death and displacement in Syria and not a word of protest is heard from those who profess concern for the Palestinian people.
No coalitions are mobilized, no demonstrations organized and no weeklong events scheduled to publicize the plight of the Palestinians in Syria. Looking at the evidence, it appears that Palestinian lives are considered unimportant unless they are somehow intertwined with Jews.
The selective outrage directed at Israel raises serious questions about the motives of many of the people who profess concern for the Palestinian people, and may explain why so many have joined the anti-Semitic campaign to delegitimize Israel.
MYTH Palestinians believe in a two-state solution. FACT While Palestinian leaders sometimes give lip-service to the idea of a two-state solutionthey convey a very different message in word and deed.
They also communicate what many believe to be their true goal — a single state of Palestine replacing Israel — through imagery.Week 7 CheckPoint: Jails and Prison Response The greatest distinction between jails and prisons is the amount of time you serve in either.
