John, I've heard and read accounts of some Palestinians who would sell land to European Jews even though they didn't own the land. Many Palestinians were also killed by their fellow Palestinians when they sold land to the EJ's who were immigrating to the Holy Lands after WW2. What is largely not advertised in the West is that the Palestinans were told to flee by their fellow Arabs because the Israelis would kill and imprison them without cause just because they weren't Jewish. This fued between cousins has been going on for thousands of years and atrocities have been committed by both sides of the conflict. While the Arab Muslims view this latest round of violence as a victory, IMHO Hezbollah is still a another loser terrorist group who hides behind women and children and hasn't even dented the IDF military capability. This is only pyrrhic political victory for them. With the financial and military support of their Syrian and Iraanian masters, Hezbollah Shiites may dominate their fellow Muslims in Lebanon but given any length of peacetime, they're just as likely to alienate and marginalize the Sunni's and Druze Muslims into politcal alliances with the Christians.

I am afraid that, like most Americans, you have a really limited knowledge of the history of Palestine. If you get a chance you need to read "The Gun and the Olive Branch" by David Hirst, which traces the history of the area from the 1880's in a clear, historical and unbiased way.
Unfortunately for this thread, most posters have only a year in Saudi, talk radio or their buddies to rely on the history of the middle east.
Can you "Elaborate" on your feelings about Hezbollah John?
1. do you believe that 19 Arab muslims brought down the WTC buildings?
2. What really is your view toward the Israeli Goverment?
3. Do you think the Neo-Con Bolshevics in power now, are responsible for the world's terrorism/ terrorist's?
4. Who really is behind World Terrorism? and Why?
