If the Palestinians had focussed on building their own society fifty years ago instead of trying to claw their land back, they could have had ten democratically elected presidents and a proper seat at the UN. The trickiest negotiations in the region would be re-uniting Israel and Palestine into a free trade zone. Granted, that would have been easier if they hadn't been forced into miserable refugee camps by their ARAB NEIGHBORS. If Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Egypt so love their poor Muslim brethren, why didn't they grant them some of their own land and help them build on it? Because Nasser's Pan-Arabism needed the Palestinians to be miserable victims to provide a pretext for his "unaligned" cold war hegemony. That didn't work out too well. Now Iran is feeding off Palestinian misery towards its own ends. The Palestinians need to figure out who their true enemies are, and if they take a cold hard look at history-- real history-- they might be very surprised. There is a conspiracy out there. It's just not the one they've been brainwashed to think it is. Technically, this is probably off target, but the issue on these threads is never really what the title says it is, is it?

I have read many of your post and you are always quick to come to the leaders of Israel's defense and rather than giving a rational and informative counter response/argument, you switch the subject to something such as how every criticism of israel is anti semitic. And your response about how people get paid to post "anti jewish" material on here, well, we know the old saying "the guilty dog barks first."

Another crock of biased and racial poo from mmichael.
Fact, Jews have lived in the Middle East since time began along with other races and religions. Jew made no difference to how the place looked up till Israel was taken from the indiginous population in 1948.
Since then the only reason that Israel has been able to prosper and forge ahead is due to the foreign money poured in.
This is still the case today and if America were to stop pouring money in to shore up Israel it would fall to pieces.
Mmichael implies that Jews are superior to their arab neighbours, but we have come to expect that from a racist. When are the mods going to ban his hatred from this board ? He makes me sick.
The chief of staff of the Israeli army recently (said) the Palestinians are a cancerous growth. That type of talking... is actually like Nazi Germany.
