I had a '56 Bedoin which I souped up real good and it was a honey. Don't know nothin' about no grave robbers, though. But you gotta hand it to them Israelis, calling 'em grave robbers like they was stealin' corpses to eat or for sellin' to medcical schools. They sound more like ":looters" to me. I'm not sayin' it's right, but when yer starvin' and under the thumb of soulless oppressors you do what you gotta do. Holy Land my ass.

Just like the sh!theads who break into your home are "doin what they gotta do". You be the name caller then. Just some innocent home invaders. Hate Jews much?

So I call a spade a spade and I'm a Jew-hater? You understand that the Jew-hating card is the easiest card to play, don't you? The next card you can play is the Hitler card. These ploys show that I'm a creepy anti-Semite and you're the good guy and the victim. I address a sociopolitical point; you respond with knee-jerk religious and tribal anger. I realize that complicated issues are at work here, but that doesn't give you leave to ignore the issues and jump into a tired and ridiculous Zioinist posture. Seen in slightly different terms, look at tribe A in Africa committing heinous genocide on Tribe B. If I call Tribe A an oppressor, does that mean I am a Tribe A hater?(Actually, I would be.) Still, you can't deal with very important problems by claiming the other side is ignorant and blind to reality. That's not what we call a dialogue, although on the Internet there's no obligation to be responsible, as you so clearly demonstrate. So ... I'm all set to be called a Hitler because I disapprove of the way Israelis treat Palestinians. Oh, and I'll make a preemptive judgement: you're a feckin' eejit.

No, I like your response. However, these "oppressors" are surrounded by Arabs that want them dead, or gone. When you use terms like "oppressors", you ignore that fact they were given a homeland by the powers to be, at the time. Doesn't make it any less legitimate. Doesn't mean they didn't have the authority to do it. When I see the Palestinians elevated to equal status when their origins are dubious, at best, I get a case of the asz. The partition was for BOTH. Only Israel decided to do something with it. And, it wasn't to go to war, and lose. As I said, I respect your response, and I refrain from Nazi or Hitler, but clearly use "Jew Hater" because that's what it is. You used eejit? LOL Have a good one.
