Notable Quote: Israel's Right to Exist

In a brilliant primer entitled "Refute Palestinian Lies to Promote Mideast Peace" in The Wall Street Journal, Max Singer refutes a persistent myth that the United States must work to refute:

[D]espite widespread use of the term in diplomatic documents and debate, there is no such thing as 'occupied Palestinian territory' because there has never been a Palestinian territory to occupy.  As some Palestinians point out, they have never had a state of their own.  This is far more than a game of semantics.  If the land was Palestinian, then Israel could have stolen it.  If the land isn't Palestinian, then Israel couldn't have stolen it.  It's critical that the U.S. actively combat the falsehood that Israel exists on stolen Palestinian land."

CFIF Condemns Racist Attacks and Threats Against FCC Chairman Ajit Pai Print
Tuesday, November 28 2017

 ALEXANDRIA, VA - Center for Individual Freedom ("CFIF") President Jeffrey Mazzella issued the following statement regarding the onslaught of racist attacks and violent threats against Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai and his family: 
 
"We at CFIF condemn in the harshest and most unequivocal terms the recent attacks against FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and his family.  Regardless of one's opinion regarding the substantive policy decisions championed by Chairman Pai to return federal internet regulation to the light-touch approach that prevailed for two decades through the Clinton and Bush administrations, which CFIF supports, there is simply no place in a civilized society for the racist attacks and threats of violence against him and his family. 
 
"Since becoming Chairman of the FCC, Pai and his family have suffered such injustices as trespassers photographing the inside of their home.  These latest threats and racist attacks, however, mark an obviously disturbing escalation of the transgressions against him and his family.  Even Chairman Pai's children have been threatened.   
 
"Such behavior must not be tolerated, and CFIF calls upon all Americans, regardless of political or policy persuasion, to condemn this escalation."
