- if they didn't suicide-bomb them
- it was their land originally
- it was their land by right
- it was their land by treaty
- 6 million
- chased out of every country they've tried to settle
- "wiped off the map"
that should cover it.
It is important to get the historical facts right. Their land originally? No. The Philistines (Palestinians) were there before the Semitic tribes
arrived, c. 8000 years ago, and so were the Canaanites. Palestinians were not always Arabs, that is a much later invasion from southern Semitic tribes
which resulted in the mixing of populations. (Note that jews and arabs are the same people, same DNA, same original tribes traced back to Yemen).
Land by right? OK, well for that you would have to believe that some god wrote a book and decided that a piece of land belonged to someone in
particular yet leaving out every other human population in the claim... I think that I would do the same to claim that any piece of land belongs to my
family: "god gave us this land! look it is written in this..err... book that fell from...err... the sky, yeah, that's right. An Angel gave it to me...
You don't believe me? then you will burn in Hell". To be fair, no human population has any "land by right" because it should be either all humans or
Land by treaty? Agreed but then they would have to stick to the 1948 boundaries, which would give back to the Palestinians a fair portion of what the
Israeli government claims its borders to be.
Rockets and mortars come naturally after the land usurpation. Wouldn't you shell your neighbour if he decided to take your home and kick you out of
your neighbourhood by force, where you have no government or justice system to protect you?
If the religious fanatics (all creeds) were eliminated, there would be peace in the world. it is only because the crazy orthodox jews are convinced an
invisible man in the sky promised them a few plots in the desert that there is a conflict going on.
