To be sure, Abbas and other PA leaders have also taken other stances on this question, sometimes contradictory, depending on their audience. One particularly entertaining response was made this week by former PA government minister Ashraf Al-Ajrami, speaking with Israel’s Army Radio. “We negate only communities under some kind of Israeli control,” he said, “but if you want, you can live [here] as a Palestinian citizen in every way.”

Given the combination of repeated warnings that no Jew may reside in “Palestine,” the PA’s indoctrination of children that Jews are “descendants of monkeys and pigs” and seek to kill innocent Arabs, and the ongoing hero-worship of Palestinian murderers of Jews, it is beyond imagination to conceive of Jews living safely in Beit El, Shilo and Elon Moreh under Arab control. Secretary Kerry will thus have to seek elsewhere for “creative solutions” if he expects to forge a long-lasting peace agreement between Israel and the PLO.
