Yasser Arafat reportedly boasted that:

“the womb of the Arab woman is my strongest weapon”

(Alternatively translated as “my best weapon”).

Arafat’s proposed demographic time bomb never materialized, and may have been overstated all along. Regardless, that Palestinian leadership would describe women’s wombs as weapons showed depravity.

It’s a sick statement to make, but it continues to drive the thinking of Palestinian officials, as was just made clear by Palestinian Authority UN Ambassador Riyad Mansour.

Numerous news agencies reported on Mansour’s recent comments regarding Trump’s not-yet-released peace deal. There is a lot of speculation that the deal will not propose an immediate Palestinian state, but some other configuration.

Mansour threatened that if that was the case, Palestinians would ignite a demographic approach.

The Times of Israel reports (emphasis added):

The Palestinians are asking the European Union to pick up the mantle in defense of the two-state solution if the upcoming US peace plan ditches Palestinian statehood, their UN envoy said Tuesday….

Palestinian Authority ambassador Riyad Mansour told reporters that he urged European officials during recent meetings in Brussels to seize the initiative and not allow the United States to be the preeminent player in the Middle East peace process.,,,

Mansour said US actions — including recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and cutting all funding for Palestinian refugees — and Netanyahu’s threat to annex Israeli settlements in the West Bank will not solve the decades-long conflict and lead to peace.

“Some in the (US) administration think, yes, what will help peace is break the legs of the Palestinians and one arm, and five teeth … and when they are on their faces on the ground crawling, they will come crawling to you for anything that you can offer them,” Mansour said.

The US peace plan, which Mansour said he has not seen, is expected to feature proposals for regional economic development that would include Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon but the Palestinians have been adamant that it will fail….

Mansour said he was convinced that the Palestinians still enjoyed “massive support in the international arena,” but suggested that if diplomacy failed, the battle could then turn to demographics.

“If this is what they want to force on us — one-state reality — the Palestinian people will accelerate their reproduction machines and increase the number of Palestinians to face apartheid,” he said.

Nothing has changed from Arafat to the present.
