To me this whole thing seems very simple.
When Israel was formed there was an offer to build a Palestinian state as well by splitting things right down the middle. The Palestinians refused this because they wanted all of Jerusalem, and the Temple mount. All Muslims rose up when the Temple mount came under Jewish territory, for fear that the Jews would level it, and rebuild the Jewish Temple. So they had their first war almost immediately after Israel was founded. During that war, and proceeding wars certain pieces of territory that were used as strategic artillery zones by the Arabs, were taken and held by the Israelis. The Arabs still want those zones so they can strike deeply into Israel, and Israel (for obvious defensive reasons) doesn’t want them back under Arab control. The Palestinians remain there as a thorn in Israel’s side, allowing for all kinds of negative publicity on behalf the Arab nations, every time the Israelis fight back.
The cycle is endless…
The Arabs will strike into Israel, prompting retaliation on their forces hiding in the civilian population, providing photo-ops for the press to show how evil Israel is, and how they feel it should to be removed as a nation. Get used to it, this happens every year, it is certainly not WW3, or the End of the World. The Palestinians are a PR tool pulled out by the other Arab nations when they want justification for a military strike, or terrorist act. Why would anyone else remain in harms way, unless it was for some agenda? It seems to me that the Syrians even tried to take in the Palestinians at one point in time, and then they expelled them right back out again. Why don’t we see these other Muslim nations, who are so deeply concerned for the “Palestinian Cause” making offers to take them in? Again… Because they are an anti-Israel, Arab, PR Tool, and they cease to be usable as one if they are elsewhere.

Man. You need to chill on the racial stereotyping and wishing death upon others. I know that you may feel bad about what the person said but he didn't attack you in any way. You're on the wrong forum to be spouting stuff like that my friend. One person's views never echo the views of an entire group of people. Just let it slide and remember, opinions are like arseholes, everyones got them.
Back to the topic. I stopped giving this thread any credibility when I read about the "Greasy haired guy at the kebab shop".
Now the 2 or 3 years of the `final solution`.. which is basically what adolf hitlers gassing of the jews was called, NOBODY DID ANYTHING ABOUT IT... NODBODY STEPPED IN, NOBODY LIFTED A FINGER TO HELP THE JEWISH PEOPLE!!!!!

Using one other member's words, I mean... you went to one place, you got kicked out, then you moved, then you got kicked out again, then you moved to another location and you got kicked out... now... have you asked yourself if the problem lies in your neighbours or... does the problem lies in you? Cause I mean... they cant be all wrong right?
