More Proof That a Palestinian State Would Already Be a Failed State « Commentary Magazine

Rick Richman has been closely following the international effort to create another failed Arab state in the Middle East, a process that will culminate in September when the Palestinians unilaterally declare independence and the General Assembly signals its approval of same. The process has an Alice-in-Wonderland quality. Everyone pretends that everyone else is being sincere in vetting Palestinian readiness. The Palestinians don’t have a constitution, they don’t have an independent judiciary, and they don’t have a free press; they can’t hold elections and their President is seven years into his four-year term; their educational system is a cesspool of primitive and savage anti-Jewish bigotry.
