There were NO Jews in Palestine until after WWII when no country in the world wanted to take them in. Before 1946 the Jews had not been on that land for 2000 years. duh,,,

Supreme Court Outs Obama As The Biggest Middle Class Tax Hiker

This is probably just the beginning. There is, in fact, no effective limit on what government can force people to buy and pay for with yet another tax.

For example, in an effort to pay for Obamacare deficits, a second Obama administration conceivably could announce a confiscatory tax that involves seizing private 401(K) and pension plans, like Argentina’s deficit-plagued national government did in 2008.

Coming to America with the Obama looters.
BRUSSELS, March 25 (Reuters)- Cyprus clinched a last-ditch deal with international lenders on Monday for a 10 billion euro ($13 billion) bailout that will shut down its second largest bank and inflict heavy losses on uninsured depositors, including wealthy Russians.

The agreement emerged after fraught negotiations between President Nicos Anastasiades and heads of the European Union, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund - hours before a deadline to avert a collapse of the banking system.

The plan, swiftly endorsed by euro zone finance ministers, will spare the east Mediterranean island a financial meltdown by winding down Popular Bank of Cyprus, also known as Laiki, and shifting deposits below 100,000 euros to the Bank of Cyprus to create a "good bank".

Deposits above 100,000 euros, which under EU law are not guaranteed, will be frozen and used to resolve debts, and Laiki will effectively be shuttered, with thousands of job losses.

EU diplomats said the president, flown to Brussels in a private jet chartered by the European Commission, had fought to preserve the country's business model as an offshore financial centre drawing huge sums from wealthy Russians and Britons.

The key issues in dispute were how Cyprus would raise 5.8 billion euros from its banking sector towards its own financial rescue, and how to restructure and resolve the outsized banks.

French Finance Minister Pierre Moscovici rejected charges that the EU had brought Cypriots to their knees, saying it was the island's offshore business model that had failed.

"To all those who say that we are strangling an entire people ... Cyprus is a casino economy that was on the brink of bankruptcy," he told Canal Plus television.
Conservative leader Anastasiades, barely a month in office and wrestling with Cyprus' worst crisis since a 1974 invasion by Turkish forces split the island in two, was forced to back down on his efforts to shield big account holders.

Anticipating a run when banks reopen on Tuesday, parliament has given the government powers to impose capital controls.

The tottering banks hold 68 billion euros in deposits, including 38 billion in accounts of more than 100,000 euros - enormous sums for an island of 1.1 million people which could never sustain such a big financial system on its own

The article also has this:

"That was discussed last week in Cyprus… and it’s also been discussed by American liberals, greedily eyeing the huge amounts of cash floating in 401k accounts. "

It reminds us what DemocRats really are today.

One more thing about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

Israel and Jordan were both called "Palestine" under British authority and both Arab and Jewish Palestinians coinhabited the land.

Israel was not blameless in the Palestinian exodus but Palestinians themselves were aggressors in the 1948-49 war.

Historians still debate the causes for the Palestinian exodus so it's not likey we're going to solve it here on this forum.

However, the two official versions:

The version of the Israeli government is the Arab Higher Committee and the Arab states encouraged Palestinians to flee in order to make it easier to rout the Jewish state or that they did so to escape the fights by fear in 1948.

The Palestinian version is that refugees were expelled and dispossessed by Jewish militias and by the Israeli army following a plan established even before the war. Also, the morale and infrastructure of Arab Palestinians had collapsed.

The bottom line is still this: Had the United Nations resolution of 1947 recommending partition and establishment of two separate states for Arabs and Jews not been subverted by force by the Arab world, there would have been no refugee problem in the first place.

The Jewish leaders agreed to this resolution. The Arab nations and Palestinian Authority rejected it.

The blame for the plight of Palestinian refugees and the ongoing conflict today, therefore, lies squarely at the feet of the Arab nations.
