    has a black Miss Israel.  Can't wait for the Miss Universe (or is it Miss World) pageant comes and Miss Israel comes on stage.  Lots of BDS and ANSWER heads will explode! I can imagine it "But- but - but Izreel iz racist!"

      I am so sick of the 'Israel bad' 'Palestinians good' narrative.  The Palestinians treat lots of,groups horribly.  They have killed a multitude of innocents around the world for being .... Jewish.

      There are no fairy tales and Israel is no more the Wicked Witch of the West than the Palestinians are Dorothy.

      BOTH sides need to sit down and negotiate in good faith.

      •  Well, but I don't think (0+ / 0-)

        the problem is simply a case of people being mean to one another. Palestinians live under Israeli control, with limited freedom of movement, lack of sovereignty, and all the rest of it. That that situation continues is unjust. Whether or not one group or the other is "better" than the other is frankly irrelevant, when those are the facts on the ground.
