As Kurt Vonnegut would say, “and so it goes.”
From the State Dept. spokeswoman Victoria Nuland:
QUESTION: Can the U.S. confirm the Israeli government’s eviction of Negev Bedouin Palestinians from territory unrecognized by Israel as Palestinian? If so, what do we know about the details of the removal from these communities?
ANSWER: This is an internal Israeli matter concerning Arab citizens of Israel located in Israel’s Negev. We refer you to the Government of Israel.
Well, isn’t that interesting. Then I guess Iran’s treatment of it’s citizens is an “internal matter?” No, of course it’s not. Is Turkey’s crack down on freedom of speech an internal matter for Turkey? It sure wasn’t during the State Dept. press briefing yesterday.Advertisements
