  •  You will have to reference that! (0+ / 0-)

    I did not say that holocaust survivors were terrorists.   I said that Palestine was invaded and taken over by a bunch of terrorists.   There is little dispute in that.

    You are running out of steam if you can’t quote me properly.

    •  Joe you absolutely did say that - (0+ / 0-)

      I said that many fled the Holocaust - or people that came to Israel right after the War. A lot of these people added to the Yishuv. You in turn said that these people were terrorists. Not too mention, that you seriously have a lack of knowledge relative to the military status of the Yishuv.

      There were terror groups on both sides. On the Jewish side there was the Irgun (led by Menachem Begin) and the Stern Gang (led by Yitzhak Shamir). Both of these groups were small players - no more than 10% of armed Yishuv forces. They were isolated and never part of the government.

      If you are maintaining that:

      Palestine was invaded and taken over by a bunch of terrorists.

      and since a ton of people ran from Europe to Israel in the run up to 1948 aren't you calling those people terrorists?

      BTW, you realize it was the Jews and the Bedouin / Jordanians(The Arab Legion) that fought on the side of the British in WWII - right? You do know that?

      Pigs are not notably aerodynamic, are they?
