“I’m here to tell you we do exist.”

At a recent Republican presidential primary debate, Palestinian American Abraham Hassan said the following to the Republican candidates:

“I’m here to tell you we do exist.”

Abraham Hassan

Hassan is a self-described Palestinian American Republican from  Jacksonville, Florida.  During the debate, he asked the following question:

“How would a Republican Administration help bring peace to Palestine and Israel, when most candidates barely recognize Palestine or its people?”

Former Governor Mitt Romney and Speaker Newt Gingrich both responded with one-sided answers that laid all the blame at the feet of Palestinian leaders.

But the first step is to ask the right question — and we applaud Mr. Hassan for doing so.
