I’ve been saying for two years, if the 250,000 Palestinians from East Jerusalem would just work within the system, they could legitimately advocate for themselves.

Instead, they boycott elections rather than unifying and supporting a slate of names that would accurately represent their interests.

Of course he is not going to get elected, but it’s important because this sets a precedent.

I’m livid that his own people do not grasp the magnitude of how important this is.

They only know riots and violence, yet there is a voice of reason amongst them. They need to grow up and listen to this guy because he’s the only adult in the room.
