When the Ethyppian jews wanted to go live in Israel, the women were forced to take birth control.
Palestinians accuse the Jews of depriving them of their home when the vast majority of them moved to Israel after the Jews reclaimed the land from desolation and ruin. The Arab/Islam world owned over 1,000 times more real estate than Israel.

In 1991, thousands of Palestinians were expelled from Kuwait after they were found conspiring with the Iraqis in selling out their host country.

They were also expelled from Jordon in 1971.

The Diminishing Returns of Republican “Pro-Israel” Politics

You’ll notice that Republican sympathy with Israel started skyrocketing at the start of the last decade and has now climbed to an all-time high. What Republicans consistently keep missing is that all of this is gradually working to their disadvantage. Part of this comes from ignoring the fact that most Americans now tend to recoil from knee-jerk hawkishness in general, but it’s also a result of grossly overestimating how popular the status quo on Israel policy is. As Republicans become more resolutely and uniformly a party of “pro-Israel” hawks, they are separating themselves more and more from the rest of the country. As they are on other issues, Republicans are increasingly at odds the views of younger voters, who are more likely to sympathize with neither side or even take a more “pro-Palestinian” view of the conflict: POLL

American sympathy for Israel is real enough (especially when contrasted with general lack of sympathy with Israel’s neighbors), but it doesn’t translate into broad support for extremely one-sided U.S. backing of Israel. Polls have consistently found that a large majority believes that the U.S. shouldn’t take sides in the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. It was an article of faith endorsed by members of both parties during Hagel’s confirmation hearing that Israel is an extremely important ally, but most Americans don’t perceive Israel as an ally at all. As new cohorts of voters begin participating more regularly in elections, Republicans will find that their increasingly hard-line “pro-Israel” position has taken them into a political cul-de-sac.

Update: The latest WSJ/NBC poll has some similar results.

First of all, both Israel AND Jordan were once called "Palestine" under the British following World War I.

In 1948, the Palestinian "Jews" declared their state of Israel and became "Israelis." The next day, 7 Arab armies - Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Yemen - invaded Israel.

The Palestinian "Arabs" living in the new state of "ISRAEL" were told to leave by the invading Arab armies until they slaughtered the Jews, promising them they could return afterwards.

70% of the Palestinian "Arabs" who left in 1948 did not leave because of the Jews throwing them out. They left because their fellow Arabs told them to leave until they exterminated the Jews and could then return to reclaim their homes.

The Arab Palestinians are tortured by their shame of flight because running from Jews was like running from women.

Their hatred runs deep on many levels. But the Jews did not force them to leave.

In 1948, Zionist leaders declared the new state of Israel and aggressively seized the offensive in guerrilla warfare against the Palestinians. Subsequent Israeli attacks on Palestinian towns and villages during this first Arab-Israeli War of 1948-49 served to expand the territory under Jewish control and drastically reduce the Palestinian population in its interior.

For example:

Israeli forces committed at least 34 atrocities (i), including the massacre at Deir Yasin, which killed 254 men, women, and children.(ii)
750,000 Palestinians were expelled from their homes between 1947 and 1949. In addition, 13,000 Palestinians were killed, 418 Palestinian villages were completely depopulated, and half of all villages in Palestine were physically destroyed.(iii)
By 1949, only 150,000 of the pre-1947 Palestinian population remained in Israel.(iv) Two thirds of the refugees who fled Israel went to the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. The remaining third scattered throughout Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and other parts of the world.(v)

Looks like you picked the wrong State to place your proxy location, Nobraina!!

"Californians show strong support for strict gun control measures"

""Californians are overwhelmingly in favor of strict gun control measures that impose background checks for all gun purchases and toughen penalties for illegally purchasing or using a gun, as well as enhancing efforts to keep guns away from the severely mentally ill, a new poll has found.

Sweeping majorities of California voters backed a proposed federal ban on the sale of assault weapons. They also backed state proposals to prohibit the possession of large-capacity magazines, background checks for the purchase of ammunition and a requirement that all gun owners be registered, licensed and insured, according to the USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll.""

Should have stuck with your hometown in PA, where they cling to their guns and bibles.

CA is just too progressive for a nitwit like you!!

No charges yet and it's doubtful there will be. The tragic accident occurred in Lake Nona a high buck area known for fabulous golf and famous golf residents among them Nick Faldo. Lake Nona is also alternating home to the Tavistock Cup an interesting charity golf challenge which features Islesworth pro's vs Lake Nona pro's.

I find it a bit amusing the dumb carol, who is fond of the terms Christ killer and Jewing one down (by going dumpster diving for household goods) uses the "All Jewry" version of what befell the Palestinians. "over 80 percent of the Arab inhabitants left their towns and villages in 1948, while Rashid Khalidi puts the percentage at 50.[8][9] Factors involved in the flight include Jewish military advances, attacks against Arab villages and fears of massacre after Deir Yassin,[10]:239–240 which caused many to leave out of panic; expulsion orders by Zionist authorities; the voluntary self-removal of the wealthier classes,[11] the collapse in Palestinian leadership,[12] and an unwillingness to live under Jewish control.[13] Later, a series of laws passed by the first Israeli government prevented them from returning to their homes, or claiming their property. They and many of their descendants remain refugees.[14][15] Later in the war, Palestinians were expelled as part of Plan Dalet.[16] The expulsion of the Palestinians has since been described by some historians as ethnic cleansing,[17][18][19] while others dispute this charge.[20][21][22]"

What is the solution? 750 murders a year?
Are some murders acceptable and others not? Most mass murderers have been white males. In Chicago it is gangs killing other gangs
. Lets go go after the criminals black and white. Passing laws that punnish law abiding people does nothing to stop people that break the law.
As for the gang members killing other gang members. people look at it as just another dead criminal they don't have to worry about. Maybe if we looked at the problem of why there are gangs in the first place we could stop most of it. When kids have no responible parenting and are not tought values they end up in gangs. Personaly I think restoring the family and values instead of rewarding iresponsibility would go a long way in reduceing all crime.
What's your thoughts? We realy need to get away from this us against them politics and start working on correcting the problems.

so what you're saying is that the police in that area are beholding to their rich taxpayers and the publicity might not be good for the department's funding.

1948 Arab–Israeli War

As a result of the war, the State of Israel kept nearly all the area that had been recommended by the UN General Assembly Resolution 181 and took control of almost 60% of the area allocated to the proposed Arab state.

Pretty much__yep. I suppose that there could be the odd intruder down there as a couple of the "phases" were stalled during the mortgage crisis and remain a work in progress with "strangers" coming and going.
