My point as I indicated, was to correct peoples understanding of the meaning of 'semite.' I specifically avoided citing any material by
'outsiders', as it may appear bias, and used that of a respected Israeli Scholar, conducted in conjunction with an Israeli University. No one has
been able to successfully refute his research, even if it doesn't make them happy. If you had read the link you would see that one of his biggest
detractors, eventually admitted that the work had merit. If the work was garbage it would not have become a best seller in Israel.
In addition I pointed to genetic evidence. Genetics do not lie.
I agree that Hamas has done some pretty stupid things, but one also must consider that it takes two, and that Israel is not without significant fault.
Remember, it was Israel who initially broke the ceasefire on November 4, which started this latest war. Prior to that date Israel agrees that Hamas
had honored their part of the ceasefire, Israel did not honor their part. And here we are today with bloody victims on both sides. Foolish.
Israel needs to honor the UN plan and stop violating international law. If that were to happen, I suspect Hamas would no longer have any reason to
exist and their support would dwindle rapidly into their being meaningless. There is a good reason for the two state plan and it would solve most of
the issues. In any case oppression will never lead to peace.
