THE BALTIMORE JEWISH HOME
We are descendants of the Canaanites that lived in Palestine 5,000 years ago, and have continuously remained there to this day. - Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas revising history in a speech to the United Nations Security Council last Tuesday
I will decline the advice I was recently given by your top negotiator, Saeb Erekat. I will not shut up. Rather, I will respectfully speak some hard truths. - Ibid.
- Florida Governor Rick Scott, after it was disclosed that the FBI was notified about the Florida shooter on multiple occasions and failed to investigate him
Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign – there is no collusion. Get back to the basics and make us all proud! - Tweet by President Trump after it was disclosed that the FBI failed to investigate the Florida shooter
Must they run their mouths like that? A lot of kids and some adults take these ignorant comments seriously. Look, there might be a cautionary lesson in LeBron for kids: this is what happens when you attempt to leave high school a year early to join the NBA. And it’s always unwise to get political advice from someone who gets paid $100 million a year to bounce a ball. Oh, LeBron and Kevin [Durant], you’re great players, but no one voted for you. Millions elected Trump to be their coach. So, keep the political commentary to yourself, or as someone once said, [be quiet] and dribble. - Laura Ingraham, on Fox News, responding to LeBron James’ expletive-laced comment that President Trump doesn’t care about people

- U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, addressing the UN Security Council last Tuesday after Abbas’ speech (Abbas deliberately left the room before her speech)
We constantly promote “see something, say something,” and a courageous person did just that to the FBI. And the FBI failed to act. “See something, say something” is an incredibly important tool and people must have confidence in the follow-through from law enforcement. The FBI director needs to resign.

Our negotiators are sitting right behind me, ready to talk. But we will not chase after you. The choice, Mr. President, is yours. There is the path of absolutist demands, hateful rhetoric, and incitement to violence. That path has led, and will continue to lead, to nothing but hardship for the Palestinian people or there is the path of negotiation and compromise. History has shown that path to be successful for Egypt and Jordan, including the transfer of territory. That path remains open to the Palestinian leadership, if only it is courageous enough to take it.
