A group of rabbis in Israel called on US president Barak Obama to “terminate” the Palestinian state idea just as the US “terminated” Al-Qaeda chief, Osama bin Laden.

Israel Channel 7 reported on Wednesday that the chief of the Council of Rabbis, Ezra Arsel sent the White House a letter signed by 350 rabbis calling for the termination of any efforts to establish an independent Palestinian state.

The report added that the letter starts by congratulating Obama for getting rid of Bin Laden, and then stated the following: “it is time to think about terminating the independent Palestinian state idea.”

They cite as one of the reasons “...the people who called for establishing a Palestinian state announce mourning after the death of bin Laden in their countries and they condemned the killing of bin Laden,” the letter added.

He added that Israelis are calling for real peace - not fake peace.

This rabbis council previously issued a religious ruling that forbids “establishing the Palestinian state on the great land of Israel.”

Palestinian statehood's time has arrived!
Jimbo who do you think enabled those zionists to STEAL Palestinian lands post WW2...the US and UN GA. There should be a way to ensure that no country is allowed to get away with murder and that those who commit crimes should be punished but dont forget that it was the US which has funded & helped arm Israel from the beginning.....and the US which has itself committed numerous war crimes itself. The focus needs to be NOT on extermination but on following the international treaties and laws as they were written & agreed to by the US et al. The MORAL high ground is wholly with the Palestinians as can anyone who follows reports can tell you. those so-called rabbis are to theology as Mengele was to following the Hyocratic Oath of Medicine.
