I watched some of these, not all.
some of them do not support an anti-palestinian slant: the one that says the palestinians will rebuild it better could be interpreted as "keeping a stiff upper lip". optimism in the face of slaughter.

that one with Arafat and the children was strange. I, however, would wager there have been occasions in Israeli classrooms when the chant "Palestine is our enemy!"

others portray a sympathetic view toward the Palestinian people...

The entire world supports Palestine. And that support is stronger than ever after this most recent zionist provocation. Israel has support in one and only one place: the Jew-SA./

I posted on the spot without any foresight. Just some examples of the THOUSANDS. They openly call to kill Jews, the children sing songs about wiping out Israel, and they are turned into child soldiers. This is major child abuse and if you have some time go through the website yourself and also MEMRI for the regional hatred translated.
Arafat was very open and there is a video online taken the same week as he signed the Oslo Accord stating that he will take what he can and than take the rest with force.

The chant death to Israel, from the river to the sea, and kill the Jews is not a random occurrence in the PA but a norm. They actively send their children to attack Jews. There are daily attacks against Jews throughout the West Bank and Jerusalem.

Also Hamas is much more open about their intentions.

And Israelis mobs attack Palestinians on the street, and they kill them by the thousands in Gaza and the West Bank.

Israelis have only killed 9,000 Palestinians in the last ten years or so, that's hardly a thousand a year!

Where do you come up with this crap? You running out of propaganda to post?
Why not claim Gaza is the most densely populated place on the planet? You lie every day anyway.

One Israeli mob attacked Arabs on the street. This is a regular occurence in 95% of Arab areas whether Palestinians or Israeli Arabs.

STILL WONDERING WHERE YOU WERE WHEN JEWISH WOMEN AND CHILDREN WERE BEING BLOWN UP BY THE HUNDREDS 10 YEARS AGO BY PALESTINIANS "CIVILIANS"? so much for you caring for women and children. Or do Jews not count?

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/06/world/middl...
The Times analysis, looking at 1,431 names, shows that the population most likely to be militants, men ages 20 to 29, is also the most overrepresented in the death toll: They are 9 percent of Gaza’s 1.7 million residents, but 34 percent of those killed whose ages were provided. At the same time, women and children under 15, the least likely to be legitimate targets, were the most underrepresented, making up 71 percent of the population and 33 percent of the known-age casualties.

There are also plenty of reporters from around the world who once leaving Gaza are very open about the facts that Israel supporters here have been saying for weeks.
That they use civilian areas and civilians as a main tactic.

These chants came long before Israel existed by these Arabs grandparents. Nice try in blaming Israel for everything as usual. It was their grand parents who carried out massacres against INDIGENOUS Jews throughout the region long before Israel existed.

9,000? Where do you get that figure from? and interesting that you NEVER differentiate between terrorist and civilian.
Suppose you also blamed Israel for the mythical Jenin Massacre.

Land to which country exactly? What about all the land in the West Bank and Gaza that Jews legally own? DO YOU BELIEVE JEWS DESERVE THEIR PROPERTY BACK ALSO?

Don;t start a war unless you're prepared for casualties. And with the promise of 72 Virgins 9,000 sounds rather miniscule.

Two Palestinians hospitalized after being severely beaten by Jewish mob in Jerusalem

Investigators believe the attack was racially motivated and have launched a probe. No arrests have been made thus far.

Two young Arabs were hospitalized Friday evening after being severely beaten in the Neveh Ya’acov neighborhood of Jerusalem, allegedly by a mob of Jewish youths.

According to police, the victims, Amir Shawiki and Ahmed Kasuani, both 20 and residents of east Jerusalem’s Beit Hanina neighborhood, claimed to have been approached by two suspects asking for a cigarette, and were subsequently attacked by a dozen others.

Although an ambulance arrived at the scene, police said both men were taken to Hadassah University Medical Center, in Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem, by family in a private car.

“They were taken to the hospital, where police took their testimony, and they then asked to be transferred to Al-Makassed Hospital in east Jerusalem,” said Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld.
