Har stater – i modsætning til individer – rettigheder?

Og hvis det er tilfældet – gælder rettighederne ALLE stater?

Evidently, the world has bought into the logic of the Right to Development –not as a universal right for all (Darfurians and Tibetans, for example, need not apply) — but as a right that applies solely to Palestinians. The reasoning goes like this: Palestinians have an inalienable right to development; Israeli aggression is preventing the Palestinians from exercising that right; Israel was foisted on the Arab world by the West — therefore the West is indirectly responsible for Palestinian underdevelopment; hence, it must pay…and pay… and pay.

The only way out of this trap is for the West to tell the Arab states that it is their refusal to come to terms with Israel that is responsible for the Palestinian plight, and that it is therefore their responsibility, not ours, to fund Palestinian reconstruction. But no Western statesman (or stateswoman) has ever summoned up the courage to say anything so bold, and it is unlikely that anyone ever will.

Og så længe der ikke er nogen vestlige politikere, der viser testikler, ryger dine og mine skattekroner ned i det sorte hul, nogen kalder Palæstina.
