Palestinians recognize Texas as part of Mexico


Palestinians recognize Texas as part of Mexico

JERUSALEM – In response to US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, the Palestinian National Authority has announced that it will recognize Texas as a state of Mexico since it was violently annexed by the United States in the 1840s.

“The territory north and east of the Rio Grande is very important to the Mexican people,” explained a PNA spokesperson. “Before American settlers showed up and implemented slavery, Mexico oversaw this land. Then, President Polk sent his armies to invade the rest of these Mexican territories, and force the country to give up California, New Mexico, most of Arizona, Nevada, and Utah, and parts of Wyoming and Colorado. We may soon recognize these states as part of Mexico too.”

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas says that this is a new approach to Mexican-US relations, and hopes it will help ease the tension between the two countries over security and immigration.

“We understand that the Mexican state of Texas is a sacred place for many large-buckled Americans, but they can rest assured that a two-state solution or a wall was not feasible,” explained Abbas.

“Besides, most people in Texas speak Spanish.”

The Palestinian consulate in Mexico City will soon be moved to Houston to formally recognize the seized territory as part of Mexico.

At press time, President Trump hopes that his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital will offer a new path for Middle East violence.

Truth thru Satire



Sorry Shifty. But this is weak satire. And even weaker historical truth. By the 1840’s Texas was no longer a Mexican province. But had been an independent country since 1836. An independent status recognized by among others, the US, great Britain and France. And even finally acknowledged by Mexico with the stipulation that Mexico’s recognition of independence for Texas would cease if the US ever attempted to annex Texas. This was an obvious unlawful interferenze into the affairs of two soveriegn natiokns. And was the ultimate cause of the Mexican-American War. The outcome of which was the treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo where Mexico relinquished in perpetuity all claims to Texas, as well as ceding over 55% of her land (the present day southwestern US) to the US.

Hawk, are you saying that what happened to Jerusalem and who it belongs to is centuries old?

Not aware. Irony bypass is fairly common.

Re: Palestinians recognize Texas as part of Mexico


I thought it was funny, many things are funny to me now that maybe wouldn't have been before. I must have had to lower my expectations since Trump so I dont' cry. Mexico like the rest of North America was full of indigenous persons of many different groups, all this land was stolen by Europeans and divvied up by those who had the power to slaughter the indigenous or kill them off by their diseases they brought.

Re: Palestinians recognize Texas as part of Mexico


Belle and Yobbo, yes i was well aware that the OP was satire. That is why i stated that it was weak satire. And that shufty’s statement of truth coming out of Satire was flawed in this case. Hell, even an ignorant Eyetalian can recognize Satire - either good or bad - when he sees it. All of that being said, there is absolutely no correlation between Trump’s idiotic recognition of Jerusalem and the US volunteerily annexing an independent soverighn nation in 1845, yes, i realize i have no sense of humour. For that we can thank the bad Danish blood i inherited from my father.
