President Barack Obama says Palestinians deserve an independent and sovereign state and an end to occupation by Israel. Obama spoke at a news conference in the West Bank with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
It’s difficult not to like Salam Fayyad. The prime minister of the Palestinian Authority has an avuncular demeanor and old-fashioned professorial charm. He boasts a doctorate in economics from the University of Texas at Austin and remains loyal to the Longhorns.
Happy Birthday, Palestine! Strike up the band. Ice the champagne. Run up
the flag. Rally and cheer. Orate and pose for the cameras. Declare
victory. Dance the night away. Sing another chorus of Baladi! Baladi!

telling glorious stories of a past that never was.
