Sponsors also include at least two major mosques known for their connections to terrorist activity.
My only question is, if they are known for terrorist connections, how the hell are they still active, still open???

This may deserve a thread of its own to be fair but I'm curious.
I want you to do an exercise in imagination...
Take tbe country you're from (or in the case of expat's the country you call home) and imagine, if you will, that part of that country was taken and was used to rehome a displaced people. All because an ancient book says they need their own land. How would that make you feel?
Now add in the fact that the country created keeps expanding its borders and building on your land, how do you feel now?
Does it bother you that this country is seen as more important and more relevant than you on the world stage?
Look at how the world gathers round to protect the right of these people and even try to legitimise their claim on your holy city, your capitol, are you annoyed yet?
I say Palestinians have every right to be annoyed.
Sure I'm oversimplifying to make a point, I'm not far off...
Late Ottoman period - In the late nineteenth century, prior to the rise of Zionism, Jews are thought to have comprised between 2% to 5% of the population of Palestine, although the precise population is not known. According to Alexander Scholch, Palestine in 1850 had about 350,000 inhabitants, 30% of whom lived in 13 towns;roughly 85% were Muslims , 11% were Christians and 4% Jews.
It is known that the Arab population of Palestine doubled during the British Mandate era, from 670,000 in 1922 to over 1.2 million in 1948, and there has been considerable debate over the subject on how much of this growth was due to natural increase, as opposed to immigration
