This post by mbkennel is depressing - I've never seen a post littered with such rubbish.
"Let's make it more analogous, people from Europe moved to Massachussets, their ancestral homeland. "
Europeans have NEVER had an "ancestral homeland" in Massachussets - they stole it (the US) from the Native Indians - a ten year old child could tell
I'm not sure what the rest of this paragraph means - it's gobbledygook.
"No Israel did not "steal" all its land from the Arabs.
Jews and Arabs, in small numbers had lived in the region, but it was very economically depressed."
The Middle East is populated by Semitic people - Semitic people are Arabs and Arabs can be Jew, Christian, Muslim (or any other faith)...these people
are native to this region, so how can they (the Arabs) live there in small numbers - that would mean the region would of been devoid of people??
I don't understand what economically depressed has got to do with the stealing of peoples' land as well.
"Arabs were not barred from Palestine. In the early 20th century more Jews moved in, some with money---buying (not stealing) land---and others as
refugees. And as it developed economically, many Arabs also moved in too. "
You seem to not understand that Arabs are indigenous to this area - saying Arabs were barred from living in this region is like saying Negroes were
barred from living in central Africa!
"The principal difference today remains that the Arabs want to obliterate Israel from the map and kill its Jewish inhabitants. The Israelis do not
want to do the same thing to the Arabs"
The Israelis don't want to obliterate the Palestinians!??!! You are joking, aren't you?? What have they been doing for the last fifty odd years??
Making a bloody good attempt at it, I'd say.
"Prior to 1967, the Arabs now in the occupied territories were known as "Egyptians" and "Jordanians". "
Read your history books - the people in this area have been and always have been called Palestinian (or from the Bible, Philistine).
Read the Bible, read Herodotus' Histories - it was called Palestine then and, whatever the Zionists want you to believe, it is Palestine now.
What you don't seem to understand is that the state of Israel was created by Zionists who hail from Europe - they are descended from Ashkenazis.
Prior to the creation of this state Arab Jews, Christians and Muslims got along fine - the trouble is there because this land has been stolen from the
Arabs by racist, white Europeans who don't belong there.
They stole this land and offered other white Jews the chance to come to the Promised Land.
If this state isn't based on racism then why don't they offer the invitation of settlement to all the black Jews in Ethiopia??
I tell you why - because these people are Nazis.
As I said, read books and open your eyes - some of the points in your post are ignorant beyond belief.
