Senior Palestinian Journalist Nasser Al-Laham: The Jews Rule Washington, Just Like They Rule Tel Aviv

Dr. Nasser Al-Laham, editor-in-chief of the private Palestinian news agency Maan and correspondent for the Lebanese TV channel Mayadeen, said, in response to a question on Palestinian-American relations, that "it is like the difference between a black dog and a white dog. The Jews rule Washington, and the Jews rule Tel Aviv." His remarks appeared on Maan Network Online on December 2.

Interviewer: "Is it really in Israel's best interest for the relations between the PA and the U.S. to come to an end?"

Dr. Nasser Al-Laham: "Look, it is like in the case of a black dog and a white dog. They are both dogs. Washington is ruled by Jews, and Tel Aviv is ruled by Jews. What's the difference? Martin Indyk left the U.S. embassy in Israel, and now, in Washington, he's more involved in the decision-making than when he was here. So it is like the difference between a black dog and a white dog. The Jews rule Washington, and the Jews rule Tel Aviv. Whether you negotiate with them in Washington or in Tel Aviv, it's all the same."
