Nations send billions to the Palestinian Authority . . . which at that point gives millions to Harvard University. The school at that point enlists a fizzled, untrustworthy Palestinian representative to educate . . . strategy.
Harvard University has named Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat — who serves as secretary general of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) — as a fellow at the Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs. Nations send billions to the Palestinian Authority . . . which at that point gives millions to Harvard University. The school at that point enlists a fizzled, untrustworthy Palestinian representative to educate . . . strategy.
Harvard simply recruited Saeb Erekat, the Palestinian Liberation Organization’s main moderator, as a “senior innovator in strategy” — after it got about $2 million in gifts from the Palestinian Authority, which rounds up billions in unfamiliar guide, including from America, for itself.
It’d be nuts to recruit Erekat for his statecraft: He’s been engaged with Palestinian-Israeli harmony talks for about 40 years, and an arrangement remains no place in sight. That may be on the grounds that he, alongside other Palestinian pioneers, has pledged never to “perceive Israel as a Jewish state,” as he said in 2014.
PLO part Erekat is one of four new colleagues delegated by the school to the task. Remarking on the arrangements, workforce seat Nicholas Burns said that the new colleagues “will fortify our ability to become familiar with the exercises of viable discretion and statecraft.”
In 2000, Erekat and Yasser Arafat turned down an unbelievably liberal Israeli offer and dispatched the Second Intifada, where Palestinian fear mongers killed and debilitated thousands. He and Mahmoud Abbas nixed another arrangement in 2008.
Pundits refer to various falsehoods he’s advised to tar Israel, for example, that its military murdered 500 honest Palestinians in a strike on Jenin in 2002. In 2015, he defended irregular wounding assaults by Palestinians as “self-preservation.”
Be that as it may, from 2017 to 2019, the Palestinian Authority “gave” about $2 million to Harvard. For what reason would a destitute system do that? Erekat’s new gig is a hint: to purchase impact at the esteemed school.
Then, Palestinian cries of neediness have provoked billions in unfamiliar guide, including $5 billion from Washington alone from 1994 to 2018. At the end of the day, until President Trump cut the income, Palestinians, basically, were utilizing US assets to pick up influence at the Ivy League school. What’s more, to take care of psychological oppressors or their families.
The game plan appears to have turned out pleasantly for Harvard and the Palestinians. For understudies and citizens, not really.
More realities about Erekat:
• In 2015, Erekat contrasted Israel with ISIS saying, “There is no distinction between the psychological warfare rehearsed by the gathering drove by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Israel’s illegal intimidation”.
• He called Israel’s extension of settlements “psychological warfare” when settlements had seen almost zero physical development for a long time. In dealings with then-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Erekat conceded that the settlements took up just 1.1 percent of the regions Palestinians needed for a state.
• Erekat prevents archeological proof from getting the Jewish history in Jerusalem.
• Erekat guaranteed his family had lived in Israel for a long time, yet proof shows that the family originates from the Huwait area of Arabia.
