Paterson, New Jersey Will Sign Sister-City Agreement With Ramallah On Monday

Paterson, New Jersey Mayor Andre Sayegh will host his Ramallah counterpart, Issa Kassis, in City Hall on Monday morning where they will sign a sister-city agreement.

Monday’s ceremony comes after the Paterson City Council voted in April to approve the relationship between Paterson, which is home to the state’s largest Palestinian population, and the West Bank city of Ramallah.

The agreement is intended to show support for the Palestinian cause, including their effort to establish an independent state.

“[T]he Cities strongly affirm their dedication to working with potential partners to support the Palestinian people in pursuing legal rights, including freedom, independence, and establishing an independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital,” the cities said in a statement.

The sister-city agreement comes a year after the city renamed a portion of Main Street ‘Palestine Way’.

Paterson has the nation’s second-largest per capita Muslim population and is the state’s third-largest municipality.

  1. anyone who studied Biblical maps can figure out that Palestine refers to the 5 cities along the coast of southern Israel whereas the area of Ramallah once belonged to the Jebusite pagans who have long since left the country so Ramallah is actually an Israeli city which has a large population of Arabs just like many other cities in Israel and since Israel’s Arabs have declared that they are peaceful and non violent why should this interest anyone unless they are part of a certain group of inner city anarchists who have attacked the very foundation of America with “non violent – turned violent” protests and the like and hope to blackmail America into funding their criminal and unemployed lifestyle whereas perhaps they find kinship among the criminal clans of the West Bank who are also unemployed
