The Dec. 27th opinion piece, “Palestinian state would expel Jews,” by Steve Huntley, dismisses key facts and resorts to illogical arguments. Huntley argues that the formation of a Palestinian state would lead to the expulsion of the Jewish residents in the West Bank. Not only does Huntley attempt to support this claim by citing two unofficial representatives of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), but he disregards the fact that these Jewish settlements are deemed illegal by international law because they are on Palestinian land.
