Does anybody here have the ability or empathy to put themselves in the shoes of the Palestinians to see what Israel has actual done? If your family was water restricted or discriminated against the way they are would you stand down and do nothing or would you speak out and let the truth be known. would you fight back? It might be fun to joke and be sarcastic about what is happening but try putting the shoe on the other foot with your family in mind.
Depersonalization is common on forums such as these because that is the only way people are able to dehumanize themselves and be so offensive. I have been part of it. i would just ask you all even if only for 5 minutes to put the other shoe on and then see how you would feel. I don't support or believe in the teachings of Islam or its radical Islamists but do two wrongs make a right??
How many times do you have to be shown there is no such thing as "Palestinian" people, Numbskull? You cling to Gaye's teats and his hate site excerpts. So many Arab leaders disagree with that old coot and their quotes are out there for all to see. But you can't? Take the scrote off your nose and take deep breath. Google Palestinian Myth, for starters. They are and always were, Arab squatters.

The Arab League represents 402 million people and this is their best-case scenario...

"Two million registered refugees in Jordan are the biggest single group of Palestinian refugees in the world. Their case is even more complicated by the fact that they are also full Jordanian citizens, though not equitably represented in Parliament as a result of large-scale gerrymandering."

These poor people can't even catch a break from their Arab brethren.

LOL Yeah. Why's that? Nobody wants them. They want to make it Israel's problem. Pure and simple. They breed like roaches and have this idea that the world is their oyster. Too bad. Go IDF, Go Israel, Go Egypt, Go Jordan. ;>)

They are the sacrificial lumber the Arab League used to drive a wedge under the door to Israel. There's no reason for the people to still live in refugee camps and be classless visitors in the countries in which they are born, none. They're on their own and they don't even get the courtesy of a reach around from the Arab world. Pathetic.

Excerpt showing that Britain had included Palestine in its promise of independence for the Arabs

16367 A 3

(e) It cannot be (and it has never been) disputed that Palestine was included in the area demanded by the Sharif Husain as the area of future Arab independence. That area was accepted by Sir Henry McMahon in toto, save for certain reservations. Palestine was not mentioned in those reservations. Whenever he had reason to make an exception, as in the case of the coastal regions of northern Syria, or of the Mesopotamian provinces, Sir Henry McMahon was careful to specify the exception, since the onus of exclusion lay on him. The fact that he does not mention Palestine, either specifically or by paraphrase, makes it impossible for anyone to contend that Palestine was excluded from the area which Sir Henry McMahon had accepted as the area of future Arab independence.

(f) His Majesty's Government's contention that the phrase "the districts of Damascus, Homs, Hama and Aleppo" included the whole of the Vilayet of Syria is untenable. It rests on the theory that district is equivalent to vilayet, which, in the light of the context as well as of common sense, is demonstrably false.

(g) Even supposing, for the sake of argument, that Palestine had in fact been excluded from the Arab area, its exclusion could only be justified on the plea of the French claim. France ultimately did renounce her claim, so far as Palestine was concerned, and the plea has therefore lost any force which it may have had.

(h) On the strength of these arguments, which are set forth more fully in their Memorandum of the 23rd February, 1939, the Arab representatives contend that the meaning of the Correspondence, whether read as an isolated text or in the light of the historical background and all the surrounding circumstances, is that Palestine was in fact and in intention included in the area in which Great Britain pledged herself to recognise and support Arab independence.

Stop it. Stop it. "A reach around"? Sheeblah will call you a deviate. LMAO. I just asked the girl in the office if she knew what that is. She answered, "Absolutely". I sh!t you not. She wanted to know what's so funny. Every now and then you make me cry.

Sure they do just because you deny it doesn't make it so. Israel is living on stolen Palestinian land that was promised to the Arabs by Britain

You're a little slow Sheeblah. The Arabs squandered their PROMISED portion and chose to go to war, instead. Just because your godfather Gaye posted another non-fact in the cuckoo's nest, and you decided to dirty our carpet with the same, doesn't change a thing. Think real hard. PARTITION. Get it?

Illegal partition yes I get it but you don't seem to. Slow and steady seems to win the race in the end. Gray is not my godfather but if he were I would be proud based on what he is trying to do. The UN went against the principle of its own charter

Subject: Jewish history on ice - youngest person to win a winter Olympic gold medal

Julia Lipnitskaya, the 15-year-old Jewish girl from Russia performed a routine to the theme song from Holocaust film “Schindler’s List” on Sunday, and became the youngest person ever to win a Winter Olympics gold medal.

It was incredible! Ilia Averbukh < http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ilia_Averbukh> ; , a former Olympic ice dancing medalist who is a Russian Jew has adapted the saddest scene from a Holocaust movie. The routine features Lipnitskaya skating as the film’s iconic “girl in the red coat <http://www.youtube.com/wat ch?v=j1VL-y9JHuIXX> ,” a young Polish Jew who is killed by Nazi soldiers. With Lipnitskaya's slight size and cherubic appearance, she painfully recollects the children who died in the greatest horror of the last century. Julia Lipnitskaya did it artfully, in a way that acknowledged tragedy without crossing over to exploitation or traumatic imagery.

Many have been slandered for years on Topix and have suffered emotional, psychological, and financial harm from lost jobs and destroyed reputations.
