Remember when Obama Administration pledged to cut greenhouse gas emissions and urged federal workers to follow by example of the President to cut gas emissions from indirect sources such as employee travel and waste disposal by 13% by 2020

Obama Hawaii Trip Costs Estimates –Hawaii Reporter

Michelle Obama & Children Early Flight to Hawaii—$63,000

President Obama’s Round Trip Flight———-$1 Million Dollars

Housing for Obama’s Security Detail———–$16,800

Costs for White House Staff accommodations—$134,400

Police Overtime—–$250,000

Ambulance———–$10,000

Obama Administration insists that these costs are in line to that of other President’s but considering the promises made to cut wasteful government spending and to “cut greenhouse gas emissions by federal employees” shouldn’t one expect a good Chief Executive to lead by example? Do what I say, not what I do.

Palestinian Authority attempts to rewrite history isn’t put on hold during Christmas–Islamists attempts to deny the Jewish nationality of Jesus and misrepresent him as a Palestinian.

Who are the Palestinians?

Although a distinct Palestinian Nationalism is taken for granted internationally today, the notion of a Palestinian people separate and distinct from neighboring Arabs is relatively recent. Indeed former PLO Executive Committee Member Zahir Mushein (1936-1979) admitted “There is no such thing as a Palestinian people, it is just an Arab tactic for the destruction of Israel.”

Mushein emphasized a point often made, The First Congress of Muslim-Christians Assn in Jerusalem in 1919 called to choose delegates to the Paris Peace Conference declared: We consider Palestine as part of Arab Syria, as it has never been separated  from it at any time. We are connected with it by national, religious, linguistic, natural, economic and geographic bonds.

Palestinian Media Watch has documented this ongoing Palestinian Authority historical revision, recently on Palestinian Authority TV Author Samih Ghanadreh from Nazareth  was interviewed about his book “Christianity and it’s Connection to Islam”

Following is the transcript of the discussion  describing Jesus as a Palestinian –PMW
