An Israeli Knesset member has given a ‘reason’ why a two-state solution is not feasible…. apparently, as the Arabic language doesn’t have the consonant ‘P’ the idea of Palestinian statehood is questionable.
Not The Onion: Israeli lawmaker says the Palestinian people don’t exist because Arabic has no letter “P.” https://t.co/rjXF85kRMa

During a debate on a two-state solution, Anat Berko from the Netanyahu’s Likud party said: “There isn’t even a ‘P’ in Arabic, so it’s a borrowed term that’s worth analyzing”

Her theory, not surprisingly, was met by sharp retorts.
The “linguistic” argument questioning the validity of Palestinian statehood angered Tamar Zandberg, an MP from the left-wing Meretz party.
“What? Did everyone hear this? Are you an idiot?” she asked Merko, Haaretz reports.
“There’s no ‘P’… ‘Pah, pah, pah,’ there’s no ‘Pah.’ There’s ‘Fah,’” Berko repeated to get her point across, as cited by the Times of Israel.
“Those are the facts; I’ll send them to you. It’s fine,” she added through further dissenting voices.
In the Arabic language the word “Palestine” is indeed pronounced as “Falesteen.” However, linguistic arguments carry little weight in interpreting international laws or negotiating peace processes.
Earlier this week, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had already kicked up some controversy when he expressed his desire to surround the entire state of Israel with a fence to block it from the outside world.
“In our neighborhood, we need to protect ourselves from predators,” he said as cited by Israeli media, leading to wide speculation about who he may have meant by “predators.”
