Palestine does not occupy Israel.
It's been this way for 50 years.
The USA has to stop feeding these bullies.
First of all Palestine never was a state or country. Israel occupied part of Jordan
But why? What trigered this occupation?
What happened when UN declared Israel as a state ?
What was before that ?

Maybe you need to pick up the bible. Christians do not hate Jews. When Jesus was crucified on the cross he said "Father Forgive Them" Jesus was an example of a perfect being and no one can be like him,
The bible says that the Jews were a primary force in killing Jesus.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_deicide

According to the New Testament accounts, the Jewish authorities in Roman Judea charged Jesus with blasphemy and sought his execution (see Sanhedrin Trial of Jesus), but lacked the authority to have Jesus put to death (John 18:31), so they brought Jesus to Pontius Pilate, the Roman Governor of the province, who consented to Jesus' execution (John 19:16). However, some Jewish authorities were responsible for the stoning of Saint Stephen in Acts 7:54 and of James the Just in Antiquities of the Jews 20.9.1 without the consent of the governor. As the Jesus Seminar's Scholars Version translation notes for John 18:31: "it's illegal for us: The accuracy of this claim is doubtful."

Pilate's portrayal in the Gospel accounts as a reluctant accomplice to Jesus' death is also questioned.

Why are folks brining up things that happened thousands of years ago? Talk about not being able to let go! That is not helpful at all.

It is impossible to make any kind of statement one way or the other because folks get their hackles up the second they hear a key word and then refer back to ancient history.

The bottom line is we have two groups of people living in a small area and they hate each other because of crap that happened thousands of years ago and neither side can let go if it.

That is serious BS right there.

Will one side really be happy if the other is completely obliterated? Or will smaller factions within the winning side start rising up and dividing people again?

Truth is, people in general do not know how to be happy. Once they attain what they think they want, they go looking for another fight.

Palestine has existed since (before) 500 BC.

More importantly: Palestine has existed legally since Israel was created in 1948 when the UN took Arab land from the people who lived there and cut it in two, and gave the better part to European Jews so they would not settle in Europe after the war.

Talk about today and work backwards.

Today: Israel is occupying land that belongs to Palestinian people and today: they are firing shells and dropping bombs on civilians who live there.

The immediate response is a ceasefire and recognition of the two state solution with UN troops providing a buffer and declared no fly zones.

Who are the Palestinians?

If you are so sure that "Palestine, the country, goes back through most of recorded history", I expect you to be able to answer a few basic questions about that country of Palestine:

• When was it founded and by whom?

• What were its borders?

• What was its capital?

• What were its major cities?

• What constituted the basis of its economy?

• What was its form of government?

• Can you name at least one Palestinian leader before Arafat?

• Was Palestine ever recognized by a country whose existence, at that time or now, leaves no room for interpretation?

• What was the language of the country of Palestine?

• What was the prevalent religion of the country of Palestine?

What was the name of its currency? Choose any date in history and tell what was the approximate exchange rate of the Palestinian monetary unit against the US dollar, German mark, GB pound, Japanese yen, or Chinese yuan on that date.

And, finally, since there is no such country today, what caused its demise and when did it occur?

You are lamenting the "low sinking" of "once proud" nation. Please tell me, when exactly was that "nation" proud and what was it so proud of?

Palestinian people were invented in 1964 by Arafat. There was never any Arab people known as Palestinians.

As “Palestinian” politician Zouhair Moussein told the Dutch newspaper Trouw in 1977

“The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct ‘Palestinian people’ to oppose Zionism.

“For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jersusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan. There are no differences between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. We are all part of one nation. It is only for political reasons that we carefully underline our Palestinian identity… yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity serves only tactical purposes. The founding of a Palestinian state is a new tool in the continuing battle against Israel.”

You can't sit back and fire rockets at Israel and expect them not to defend themselves - pretty simple. I think Israel has exercised a lot of restraint before taking action. Those firing the rockets at Israel have been asking for this over and over - congrats on getting what you asked for. The UN opinion is pretty meaningless because they are simply irrelevant - they never DO anything - they just give opinions on what others should do. Kind of like Obama's foreign policy that is making the US more irrelevant every day.

Ethnic cleansing is what the Arabs would love to to with the Jews, as shown by their decision to elect Hamas, a terrorist organization that campaigned on anti-Semitic lies with the desire to push the Jews into the sea and annihilate Israel. If the Arabs would stop attacking Israel, then they would not have to hear from Israel. They have yet to learn who they are messing with.

Yes, they're crawling out from under the rocks again.

Every time the world's most heavily funded Nazi Colony goes on a Genocidal Orgy, America's traitorous infestation of Zionist propagandists start parroting their same Hasbara Scripts

"RagazzaToro" has apparently gotten his/her/its "Megaphone" software alert via:

“Bombing of Gaza children gives me “orgasm”: Israelis celebrate slaughter on Facebook”
http://theuglytruth.wordpress.com/2014/07/14/...

Enjoying yourself ol' "StickyPants?

I hate to pop your Hasbara bubble but, today's Ashkenazi Jewish Israeli's have absolutely no connection to the small tribe of ancient Hebrews who invaded and briefly Occupied Canaan.

However, the native Arabs are genetically connected to the Ancient Canaanites, Jesubites, Edomites, etc

“New Genome Study Destroys Zionist Claims to Palestine”
http://www.veteranstoday.com/2013/03/01/new-g...
EXCERPTS “ On December 14, 2012, Dr. Eran Elhaik turned almost two generations of Jewish genome research upside down.
“But he went even further. The young Israeli-American geneticist has charged former researchers with academic fraud, and he has the research to back it up.”

“How could those those eminent Jewish scientist before him have been so wrong? Easy says Dr. Elhaik,“First these researchers decided what conclusions they wanted to find, and then they set off to find evidence to support it.” I was not bashing Jewish scientists. What Elhaik has described is a slam dunk fraud.

“But why? Why would Jews who take such pride in the academic achievement risk exposing themselves to a group deception which was bound to be discovered later? Dr. Elhaik does not delve into the quicksand of the politics,” CONTINUED

Additional proof that "Israelis" are simply mongrel Brooklynites, Khazars, Spaniards, Poles etc exists, or rather doesn't exist in Extra Biblical Texts in which there are few if any references to an "Israel"

“IN ANCIENT EGYPT, CANAAN REVISITED WITHOUT ISRAEL”

http://ashraf62.wordpress.com/2012/03/17/in-a...

EXCERPT "In his article “Deconstructing the Walls of Jericho“, appearing in Ha’aretz (29 October 1999), Ze’ev Herzog calls the mention of Israel on the stele a reference to “population group of nomads” who most probably were always on the move, looking for fertile land to herd their animals. In the article Herzog concludes.

“Following 70 years of intensive excavations in the Land of Israel, archaeologists have found out:

The patriarchs’ acts are legendary stories, we did not sojourn in Egypt or make an exodus, and we did not conquer the land.

Neither is there any mention of the empire of David and Solomon.

Those who take an interest have known these facts for years, but Israel is a stubborn people and doesn’t want to hear about it.”

Did you know that Egypt is mentioned in the Holy Bible approximately 700 times (Egypt: 595 times, Egyptian(s): 120 times).

Israelites were mentioned in the ancient Egyptian records once or … maybe none at all."CONTINUED

Those are the real Facts about the inhabitants of stolen Palestine.

Still confused, then take it from one of your founding Terrorists:

"Jewish villages were built in the place of Arab villages.........
......There is not a single place built in this country that
did not have a former Arab population." -- David Ben Gurion, quoted in The
Jewish Paradox, by Nahum Goldmann, Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1978, p. 99.

Try again, Hasbarat.

That is one good thing about Israel, it got Europe's Jewish issue out of Europe.

Although thousands of sex slaves have been taken by the Jewish Russian mafia, from Russia, and Ukraine, to Israel.
