“[Ben Ami] said the destruction of Palestinian rights was at the top of the agenda wherever Hillary Clinton goes and is hurting the U.S.’ strategic national interest.”
“Kristol sniggered. He said that it’s a “myth” that the Palestinians are important even to Arab countries.”
OK, so Kristol implicitly admits that Palestinian rights are being destroyed. But it’s not an issue because Palestinians aren’t important. Kristol is supposed to be an American. “All people are created equal” is the sine qua non of being an American. It shouldn’t matter whether or not the people whose rights are being destroyed are important.
