    Palestinian state and Yigal alon

    Hello, I wanted to ask something about an interview of Yigal Alon.



    The phrase: constructive Palestinian Arab community.
    Questions:

    1. Why Alon didn't use 'of' after constructive?(And I speak about the constructive of Palestinian Arab community)

    2. Does community have the meaning of 'building a state for the Palestinians'?
    Even though that on Youtube we have the title "SYND 10 10 75 INTERVIEW WITH ALLON ON PALESTINIAN STATE"

    Thanks.

    Re: Palestinian state and Yigal alon

    Constructive is an adjective describing the Palestinian community he would want to negotiate with. It does not have the meaning of your second question to me. I would assume that he means the community that are prepared to negotiate with Israel. I would use the definite article before Palestinian State in the title, but titles and headlines often omit articles.

    (I have answered this as a language question, and ask other responders to keep it that way.)

    1. It would be wrong with "of"; "constructive" is an adjective describing the Palestinian Arab community.
    2. No.

    I think that the video clip is too political and should be deleted. The question has now been answered. I will, therefore, delete it now.

    I have deleted the video, not the thread.
