    which seems to be what most people on each side want, deny people equal rights? We don't have a single world government.

      When I hear supporters of Israel tell me what the Palestinians want which happens to equate with what they want, I am suspicious.

      Israel is a country where some rights are reserved for Jews.  Non-Jews become second class citizens.   Would you object to such laws targeting Jews in America?   Should Jews be denied certain rights because they are Jews?   Does that line of logic not trouble you?   Why should the Palestinians accept it?

        the great many various and independent polls of Palestinians which say that they, by a vast majority, want independent statehood. It sucks when reality interferes with your agenda, doesn't it?

        Let me ask you a question: Why shouldn't the Jews not be allowed a national homeland when every other group in the world has one?

        Also - despite what propagandists say Israel is NOT based on racial superiority - give that card a rest.

        How do you feel when Hamas says this:

        There was no war that broke out anywhere without their (Jews') fingerprints on it

        or

        •"The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews; until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him..."

        or this little gem:

        The Hamas station, founded in 2006, is modeled on the Hezbollah station in neighboring Lebanon, al-Manar. Al-Manar's children's program shows children wearing explosive belts and images of dying Israeli soldiers, with triumphant chants as background music. Cartoons depict scenes like that of a child blowing himself up near Israeli soldiers, or of a smiling boy flying toward Israel on a missile. Adult viewers can enjoy video clips that use inspirational graphics and rousing music to glorify the act of committing a suicide bombing, while the evening lineup offers family entertainment with a series of films based on the classic anti-Semitic forgery "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion."
