GOP Leader Cantor: Palestinian culture ‘infused with resentment and hatred’

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) delivered a severe rebuke to Palestinians on Thursday, linking their culture to terrorism and questioning their worthiness to have an independent state.

“If the Palestinians want to live in peace in a state of their own, they must demonstrate that they are worthy of a state,” Canto said in his address Thursday to the Union for Reform Judaism Biennial taking place in suburban Washington.

Cantor said the Obama administration must clearly signal to emerging Arab governments that vilifying Israel and Jews is unacceptable.
"Now is the time for Washington to send a clear signal to the emerging governments of the Middle East and the international community that it is not OK to vilify Israel and it is not OK to demonize Jews,"

“I say to you, any justification of any form of anti-Semitism must not be tolerated or condoned, History is replete with examples that when it comes to the Jewish people, the world can turn a deaf ear.”
