Hope   October 15th, 2009 6:05 am ET

This is really remarkable...Was any artifact found on this ancient site providing evidence of a jewish exodus? Iraq would have been one of many paths taken to Russia!!

miriam   October 15th, 2009 8:05 am ET

Hope,

Yes, I expect there are many Jewish artifacts

The Jews of Jerusalem were exiled precisely to that area by Nebuchadnezer and the Babylonians in the 6th century BC.

Hope   October 15th, 2009 2:42 pm ET

Great. Let the archeological evidence present itself and lets not rush affirmation based on speculative predictions...

Filipe   October 15th, 2009 7:06 pm ET

Hope,

Do you have any alternative theories about how how Judaism made it's way to Russia?? Or do you simply feel the need to question any historical fact that doesn't meet with your acceptance?

You keep whining about the fact that there are Jewish immigrants from Russia living in Israel--but you repeatedly fail to discuss or even mention how it is you think that Judaism made it's way to Russia-it couldn't possibly have been the migration of the Israelites, now could it ???

But it's really quite hilarious that you get your panties all in bunch because Israel has the same right as any other sovereign nation when it comes to immigration policy!

How is it that you and your family ended up living on Native American land?? Could it possibly have been through immigration? Or is that a "different" situation because it's the USA ??

Get over it

John A   October 16th, 2009 5:41 pm ET

Hope refers to a previous debate i.e. there is no archeological/historical evidence that the Jews were ever exiled from Judea in ancient times. This implies that the Jews of ancient times converted to being Muslim, which in turn implies todays Palestinians are the ancestors of Biblical Judea and not Israels Eastern European Jewish immigrants.

Miriam has faith that archeological proof of a Jewish exodus will be found. Her belief is based in faith and religious stories and not historical proven fact.

Filipe goes even further into the obscure and claims that the ancient Jewish population was expelled by the Romans and thats why we have Jews in Russia. Filipe doesn't seem to realize that all religions were spread by a handful of believers. Hence today all religions have representation in all parts of the world. For example Filipe why are there Christians in China and India. It does not mean that the Romans expelled all Christians from Europe. It simply means a few Christians travelled with a desire to convert other cultures. Not too hard to understand for anyone with average intelligence.

So Filipe ask yourself your own question. i.e. Could Russia only have Jews if all Jews were expelled from Judea by the Romans? Filipe why do you continue with such redundant thoughts? Is it because you desperately need to pretend that the Jewish immigrants from Europe are returning to their ancestral land? Is it because you are guilty in the knowledge that these Jewish immigrants have used religion as a means to rob Palestinian families of their ancestral homes? The very sad and redundant logic of Filipe is central to the Middle East crises. It tries to justify the theft of a nation.

Solomon   October 17th, 2009 12:17 am ET

the UN human right vote today. are you going to Ignore it.

Shame CNN

John A   October 17th, 2009 1:03 pm ET

Solomon the UN have voted to investigate probable war crimes committed by Israel and Hamas. With an emphasis on the over whelming brutality of the Israeli army in Gaza and Israels lawlessness in East Jerusalem.

In principle this could now go to the International Criminal Court, however it is expected that America will use its position as a permanent member of the UN security council to veto court action. And so the middle east crises will continue with the indiscriminate violence of Israels military waged against Palestinian civilians and all with Americas support.

Regardless of your beliefs or positions, how can any nation have the right to veto legal action. Surely this will define the USA a a lawless nation? i.e. America vetoes the use of law!

So Solomon it is is obvious why North Americas news channels don't want to highlight this issue.

Filipe   October 17th, 2009 7:45 pm ET

John A,

Who said that the Romans expelled "ALL" Jews ???

This "ALL" Jews being expelled phrase is a creation all your very own !!! No one but you has made such an ignorant statement.

But, never the less, the fact that Judaism (Jews) migrated from Israel to Russia is exactly that -- fact !!!! I don't make the claim-- look it up for yourself !!

DNA evidence also supports that the Jewish populations of Russia and Europe originated in Judea-fact !!! Links have been posted repeatedly-go back and read !

You even did a Google search for "Forced Jewish Exodus from Israel" and obtained ONE MILLION TWO HUNDRED TWENTY THOUSAND links---
Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha !!!!

It is also a fact that Jews have continuously lived in the Judea, the Land of Israel since before the time of any Arab migration to the area !!-Another fact.

Sorry about your inability to accept it -– but your whining about it and your obstinance is quite amusing!

I guess you woke up again today just as always, angry, pi$$ed off, full of spite and hatred-–just because Israel is a sovereign nation who has the right to determine who can and can not live in Israel !!!!

But you know what-it really means nothing to me- whether or not the Jewish immigrants from Europe or Russia are returning to their ancestral homeland--they need not justify to anyone- not me, not the rest of the world-not the Arabs--and least of all not you !!!!

Israel can accept anyone they so choose to live Israel!!

So, Boo Friggin' Hoo! Johnny boy.

But the best of all is your "theft of a nation" gibberish !!!!! Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha !!!!!

Theft of what nation ??? The land of present day Israel was never in all of a history a 'Nation". What nation does your little mind think that it was?? Who ruled this nation?? What was it's borders?? What kind of government did it have??

You're simply delusional !!!! Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha !!!

Where did you go to school???

miriam   October 18th, 2009 7:36 am ET

John A,

Once again, there's plenty of archaeological and historical evidence that Jews were banned from Judea and that there was a migration of Jews througout the Roman Empire.

You just choose to ignore it because it doesn't fit with your crooked revision of history.

Archaeology and history of Iraq/Babylon, which dates back further than the Romans, provides plenty of evidence of earlier exiles of Jews from Judea.

John A   October 18th, 2009 11:32 am ET

Filipe and Miriam, there are more important things to discuss than your meaningless historical stories of a Jewish exodus, which can not be supported with any evidence.

As Solomon said, the UN have voted to investigate probable war crimes committed by Israel and Hamas. With an emphasis on the over whelming brutality of the Israeli army in Gaza and Israels lawlessness in East Jerusalem.

In principle this could now go to the International Criminal Court, however it is expected that America will use its position as a permanent member of the UN security council to veto court action. And so the middle east crises will continue.

Regardless of your beliefs or positions, how can any nation have the right to veto legal action. Surely this will define the USA a a lawless nation? i.e. America vetoes the use of law! Surely the International Criminal Court would be the perfect setting for Israel to prove its innocents. Why does Israel and America want to block legal action? Because it is clear that Israel is guilty and America has supported all of Israels crimes.

So America the supposed world Policeman which pretends to bring democracy to the Middle East will now block the use of law to resolve this conflict. The Palestinians will yet again have their legal rights denied by the West. By doing so the West forces the Palestinians to take up arms. Israel will then claim the Palestinians are violent and uses Palestinians protests as an excuse to allow the Israeli army to attack and grab more Palestinian land. The obvious criminals are the ones who do not wish to see the use of law. America doesn't wan Israel investigated by the International Criminal Court and will do everything to stop this. Israel does not want top be investigated by the International Criminal Court. So the Palestinians will remain the victims in the crime of the Century.

So Solomon it is is obvious why North Americas news channels don't want to highlight the issue.

miriam   October 18th, 2009 12:33 pm ET

John A,

Do you know what the resolution that was passed said?

Do you know which countries voted for it?

You really want those countries playing the role of the world's policeman?

Help!

John A   October 18th, 2009 2:32 pm ET

Miriam, We all know what the UN resolution said. We all know the USA & Israel tried to block the resolution.

The UN are willing to use the International Criminal Court to resolve crimes in Gaza. The International Criminal Court will not take action against Israel if Israel was innocent. So why does Israel want to block the due process of law. Why does America want to stop the due process of law.

The lawlessness of Israel is terrifying and people of the world should not let our politicians prevent the due process law again!! International law has been defied by Israel for 60 years. Enough is enough!!!

Solomon   October 18th, 2009 7:25 pm ET

Miriam

For: Argentina, Brazil, China, Russia, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Chile, Cuba, Djbouti, Egypt, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Jordan, Mauritius, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, South Africa and Zambia

Against: US, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Slovakia and Ukraine

Abstentions: Belgium, Bosnia, Burkina-Faso, Cameroon, Gabon, Japan, Mexico, Norway, South Korea, Slovenia and Uruguay

No vote: UK, France, Madagascar, Kyrgyzstan and Angola

if you look carefully at the countries you will find that almost all the human race excluding less than 8% voted for the goldstone report.

Hope   October 18th, 2009 11:09 pm ET

Fillipe..What in the world are you still flapping your lips about? Get over this myth...Facts!! Dude, what facts?? There are NO facts, no artifacts, no recorded data, no documented journals, frankly there is NOTHING as in ZERO evidence of a Jewish exodus ever took place. Your one million junk site are what they are..Junk sites. Written by Rabbis and delusional jews exaggerating biblical myths, in an attempt on selling the idea.

Even your DNA evidence is baseless confirmed by some of the best scientists as, "it is impossible or unwise to define an ethnic group genetically".

The exodus story has NO merit in museums, in science, in history, academics or Archeology. And with each passing generation, it will be yet another fictional myth going down in history as one more jewish folk tale. Whether you like it not, does not matter. Reality, most reasonable people on this planet understand that, and has nothing to do with anti Semitism as you desperately love to imply.

Facts are facts, evidence are evidence, myths are myths..If you are going to talk the talk, you need to walk the walk...So far you presented links to myths, and words to gibberish. Time to put a lid on this, and move on with the times. Ok Amigos!

Filipe   October 18th, 2009 11:17 pm ET

John A,

You seem to be quite confused about the purpose and meaning of a resolution purpose of a court of law. Not everyone who is taken to court is guilty. At least not a real court of law.

I'd certainly like to see each and every person accused of crime to be given the opportunity to face their accusers.

One thing for certain about the entire Gaza issue-- there never was and never will be any debate about the intentions and the actions of those who to part in and publicly supported the continual use of qassam and katusha rockets into the civilian population centers in Israel. Each and every Palestinian leader who ever spoke out in support of these actions will have the opportunity to defend his position-– for which there is no defense. Good luck to them all !!

As for the 32 incidents cited by the Goldstone report against the Israelis-- they are well underway into the investigations on all of them. I'm certain they will address each and every one, much to the dismay of John.

But I'm sure you haven't the faintest clue as to what the UNHRC resolution said !!!

What a hoot!
Ah ha ha ha ha ha !!!!

miriam   October 19th, 2009 11:16 am ET

Solomon,

I am sure most of the populations of those countries and the world would have no idea about anything their representatives vote for.

If they knew of the existence of the UNHRC they would want to know why the council isn't doing anything to improve their own awful human rights situations rather than pay any attention to Hamas propaganda.

John A   October 19th, 2009 3:57 pm ET

Could the Israeli Zionists on this blog construct a debate without using the words, "anti Semitic, terrorists or propaganda"?

These three words are the tired favorites of the brainless. These words are overused perversions of fact and have nothing to do with Israels military occupation of Palestine, Syria and Lebanon.

Filipe   October 19th, 2009 10:33 pm ET

Hope,

You're always good for some comic relief !!! Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha !!!!

They're not my ONE MILLION TWO HUNDRED TWENTY THOUSAND LINKS of " forced Jewish exodus from Israel" !!! I never wrote any of them.

Nor is it "my DNA" evidence!!! I didn't publish it!!

If you can't accept the published facts-that's your prerogative !!!!
But people get convicted everyday in the US courts based upon the accuracy and proven reliability of DNA evidence.

But if you think it's nothing more than smoke and mirrors-that's your prerogative

But you need not whine and cry and slobber to me about how the published documentation available in the public domain is is all lies and fabrications. You should address your concerns the authors of your so called "fictitious" publications !!!!

You're no different than your buddy John boy when comes to understanding and accepting that there are people in the world who know a lot more than you about the history and current situation in the Middle East.

Just because you don't agree-fails to make your view valid !!!

But while you're on your soap box-- be sure you make proper arrangements to allow the Native Americans and Mexicans back onto the land that you and your white European settlers stole from them a while back.

Yea!!! Right !!! Like that will happen!!!

miriam   October 20th, 2009 7:58 am ET

John A,

It's not enough that there are those who will not allow Israel to defend its citizens from terror, militarily.

Now there are those who are forbidding Israel's defenders from using words.

John A   October 20th, 2009 11:31 am ET

Miriam nobody stops you from using words. The point is if you always rely on the same word such as "terrorist & anti Semitic", you prevent yourself from constructing and expressing any form of intelligence. Take it as a challenge, try to make an original thought which commands understanding and try to justify your point. You will find while you hide behind words like "anti Semitic" you have nothing to contribute to the debate. Then you become like Filipe who writes "whining, slobbering & hahaha" and behind all of his remedial remarks there is zero content, zero tought and zero justification.

The same could also be said for Israel legal military occupation, Israels constant breaches of UN regulations, Israels imprisonment of Palestinian without making any "public" charge or allowing a lawyer to defend or Israels military assault against civilians. Israel is a barbarian state whose hole ambition is to expand territory and wage war on Arabs. You may disagree with me but you can not justify yourself, you can only hide behind slogans like anti Semitic. No doubt you will keep hiding behind such slogans because that is all you have. No doubt Filipe will keep hiding behind his,"hahaha ,whining" comments because that is all he has. And no doubt Israel will keep hiding behind Americas UN veto, because thats all lawless societies can do when faced with the International Criminal Court!

Filipe   October 20th, 2009 12:23 pm ET

John A,

There are other words, nouns and adjectives, that more precisely and correctly describe you, those you support and their action. The problem, however, is that CNN forbids the bloggers to use any of the words to more accurately describe you, your agenda and those you support.

Sorry, but you'll just have to live with it -- or stop reading the blogs.

John A   October 20th, 2009 4:36 pm ET

Filipe I'm am sure you have driven most people away from your personal life, but you cant drive people off this blog. Also you admit that you cant construct an intelligent debate, you rely on boring meaningless slogans, four letter words (which CNN wont upload) or non existing words like "Bwaaa". But then again you have to be totally ignorant to be a Zionist, so Filipe your contribution figures along side Israels illegal military occupation and the Zionist apartheid regime.

Filipe   October 20th, 2009 8:17 pm ET

John A,

I see you simply haven't the ability to stop your whining and complaining !!! Ah ha ha ha ha ha !!!

Why should we expect any more from you???

But you're still on the loosing end of the stick if all you can do is complain daily about the circumstances you don't like!

It simply goes to show your lack of ability to accept the situation and circumstances that you are faced with.

No amount of complaining coming from you will change anything! That's what is so comical about you and your constant whining and relentless psychotic psychobabble!

Have you ever thought about seeking help for your problems associated with bigotry, hatred and the promotion of radical violence ??

miriam   October 21st, 2009 6:34 am ET

John A,

Israel is not a "barbarian" state.
It is a liberal, representative democracy with an accountable military, freedom of speech and press and a fair and developed three-layered judiciary.
To describe it otherwise is a result of disinformation supplied by the propaganda machine of other states and organizations who deliberately single out Israel for demonization and delegitimization and hold it to double-standards.

Israel is not looking to expand territory, but simply wants to live within secure and defensible borders, without terrorists blowing themselves up amidst buses and cafes full of innocent children, and without large portions of the population having to live underground or in protected rooms in fear.
This is necessary when it is other nations who are looking to expand and dominate and openly call for Israel's demise and destruction. Why? Because they don't want a Jewish state in its historical and religious homeland.

If terrorism, propaganda and anti-semitism were to disappear in reality, not just in language, the region would look a lot different.

Moses   October 24th, 2009 4:43 pm ET

isn't it ovious .. John A. is anti Israeli ... and he will find out as will all peoples of the earth.. They Are Still God's people.. and will always be.. nothing said here or any other forum,, will change that..

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem

Darren   October 26th, 2009 10:16 am ET

In history didn't Moses kill an Egytain and then go on the run to escape the justice process. Now Moses returns to the blog and it seems like nothing has changed. Israel still avoids justice, no matter how many Gazan civilians the Zionists kill.

miriam   October 27th, 2009 7:45 am ET

Darren,

Why was Moses growing-up in Pharoah's palace?

Hope   October 27th, 2009 3:18 pm ET

According to the "Exodus" account, when Moses was born in times of war (what's new!), the Pharaohs were commanding all male Hebrews to be killed. Medieval, strategic preemptive strike. (In-self defense/preventing future terrorists)..Spotted in the river, adopted (a kind gesture) by Egyptian royal family. He (Moses) goes on "killing" an Egyptian slave, then "escaping" justice over the Sinai Peninsula. Later he becomes a "religious" leader, "lawgiver" and prophet!

That's right Darren, Moses is baaaack..and nothing has changed. It's all in the DNA!

Darren   October 27th, 2009 5:21 pm ET

Miriam,

Moses grew up with Egyptain aid, because the USA would not be founded until several thousand years later. No annual 3 billion dollar hand out to Israel in those days.

miriam   October 28th, 2009 12:45 pm ET

Hope,

You appear to have extended your attacks on Judaism to now include insulting Islam and the holy prophet Moussa.

It may be acceptable to hate Jews and their religion since they will not turn around and hit you, but insulting Islam......

miriam   October 28th, 2009 12:53 pm ET

Darren,

Modern day Egypt receives far more US aid than Israel.
Israel repays most of the aid back into the US economy and provides aid to the US.
Egypt, however, gets the free hand-out in return for a signature on a 'peace agreement' which consists of denying visas to Israelis to attend conferences, leading the Arab/Muslim anti-Israel block in the UN etc,refusing to sit down with Israeli diplomats and refusal to make presidential trips to Israel.

Hope   October 29th, 2009 3:48 pm ET

miriam

A rope has two ends..you keep pulling on one side and I on the other..Your obvious motto is to degrade and decompose the Palestinians, mine to exalt them regardless of your round the clock efforts. Misleading comments don't impress anyone.

miriam   October 30th, 2009 9:14 am ET

Hope,

I only see a rope being pulled from one end while the other end is tied aroung the Jew's neck.
I'm trying to acheive a stay of execution and prove the innocence of the victim.

John A   November 1st, 2009 3:33 pm ET

Miriam . 1400 Palestinians’ were murdered by Israel last December. Palestinians’ have their homes bulldozed, their water and electric cut off. They have medical aid blocked and they live under curfew.
Israelis rob all the land and resources and then play golf. Yet you think the Jews have a rope around their neck. What a sick puppy you are.

miriam   November 2nd, 2009 1:08 pm ET

150,000,000,000 hold the gallows while
14,000,000 or just
6,000,000 hang-on for life.

Filipe   November 2nd, 2009 10:01 pm ET

John A,

You should whine and cry at Egypt for keeping them locked up !!!

What's up with that????

It's clear-The Israelis have no use for their hatred, violence or presence on Israeli soil !!!!

What is so difficult for them to understand??

they just don't get it???? Similar to you???

Israel is under no obligation to provide them with electricity !!!! They have their own power plant--and the EU provides the fuel to run it !!!

My tax $$$$$ pay for it !!!!!!

Israel has no obligation to maintain any infrastructure in Gaza-- not the water, not the electric, not the sewer, not the water, not the roads-Nada !!!!!!

It's Hamas who has earned this right !!!!!! They inherited it from the Palestinian Authority !!!!!

But ignorant fools like you seem to think that Israel is their friggin' babysitter---

Where the h3ll is UNRWA???? Why don't you whine at them???? Their sole purpose in life is to babysit the Palestinians !!!!!!

Whine and cry and slobber at them for a change !

Oh, I get it-– that's not the same a whining and crying and slobbering about how the Jews are mistreating the poor poor Palestinians!!!!

What a joke you are !!!!

John A   November 4th, 2009 12:20 am ET

Filipe writes> But ignorant fools like you seem to think that Israel is their friggin' babysitter
-------------------------
Talk about dumb. It was Israel that targeted and destroyed all of Gaza's infrastructure.
If Israel was a baby sitter, then Israel would be a hideous molester.

miriam   November 4th, 2009 1:14 pm ET

John A,

BTW, Israel did not destroy all of Gaza's infrastructure. Gaza is functioning just fine.
Most of the damage was Hamas's responsibility.

Shame_on_anyone_who_supports_Israel   November 5th, 2009 1:14 pm ET

Miriam
We have all seen Israels airforce blasting Gaza with no thought to the innocent victims. Grow up Miriam!!

miriam   November 5th, 2009 1:36 pm ET

CNN,

Why are there those on this blog who can sling odious abuse but you won't print the response to that abuse?
Why is it that some here are reproducing Hamas propoganda and others are silenced when disputing it?
It seems that it is not only the State of israel who is being prevented from defending its citizens from attack. now the international media is forbidding the international community from defending Israel.

Hope   November 5th, 2009 6:48 pm ET

miriam..Could it be the lack of focus of cnn's moderators is due to..still salivating over (Kaitlin Beckman's- photo stream–Lack of water in gaza Blog), to which you approved whole heartedly? Be patient, once they zip their pants up, they will cater to your teary whining...Are you stumping your feet as well!!

miriam   November 5th, 2009 6:50 pm ET

Shame,

You obviously work for this blog since you are able to respond to my posts while they still waiting for moderation.

What I've seen is air force footage of rockets being fired from schools, from the rooves of civilian residences and adjacent to UN facilities. I've seen booby-trapped homes and schools and weapons stored in mosques and under residential neighbourhoods.
Such activity turns such locations into legitimate military targets under the laws of war.

I've seen leaflets dropped to warn civilians of imminent attack aswell as having heard cell-phone messages and seen texts with the same warnings. And Hamas operatives preventing those innocents from leaving

I've also seen Israeli schools, kindergartens and residential neighbourhoods deliberately targeted by Palestinian terrorist rockets, tunnels dug under the border for terrorist infiltration and attacks on oil terminals that supply fuel to Gaza.
Israel has a legal right to protect its citizens beyond having to live in shelters and protected rooms.

Sharon   November 6th, 2009 12:59 am ET

Miriam, does it ever enter your head that you are wrong and the rest of the world including CNN are right. Your arrogance is really breath taking. The sad thing is Palestinian families pay the price of your arrogance. Our prayers are with the Palestinians and we hope they will soon be free of Israeli persecution.

Hope   November 6th, 2009 2:24 am ET

CNN Moderators, you must quit staring at (Kaitlin Beckman's- photo stream), and re-focus..Miriam is having a melt down and needs attention, PLEASE!!...

Also, indeed there is apparently "a sling odious abuse" on this blog. An unusual activity of pro-Palestinian voices tuning in..They could all (including myself) be future potential terrorists. Did you think of that!!!!!..You must act fast and delete their voices, or edit maybe?. The International community must NOT hear of them. Ever.

Israel with its (biggest military and nuclear power in the ME) is at serious risk of being annihilated by some feeble stone throwing children, and home-made toy rockets. Ladies and gentlemen..that in itself should send TERROR chills down our spines. Therefore, I agree with miraim..Israel (God bless our $$ billions of hands-out to her) should not be prevented from defending its citizens from these deadly attacks. Shame on cnn.

miriam   November 6th, 2009 12:48 pm ET

Sharon,

Truth is not arrogance.
I know the difference between propaganda born in hate and the reality on the ground.
The "rest of the world" doesn't have a clue.

John A   November 11th, 2009 3:15 am ET

Miriam says "she knows.....and the rest of the world doesn't have a clue".

Wow these arrogant Israelis really think they are superior and the rest of the world has "no clue" how inferior they are.

Thanks Miriam you and Filipe always present the true and unpleasant face of Israel. I bet you wish you could be a super power without American tax aid. Then you could build Jewish settlements in all the "clueless" continents of the world. Fortunately for the world and sadly for the Palestinians you can only bully Arabic civilians in the middle east!

Filipe   November 11th, 2009 8:46 pm ET

John A,

It's ignorant fools like you who continue to think that anyone with an opposing opinion must be a Jew!!! Amazing !!!! I've clarified this fact with you many times-but you either refuse to accept what I say, or your deficiencies in memory clouds your thoughts-I'm not sure which. I tend to believe it's nothing more than belligerence and obstinacy on your part-– as you well know I'm neither a Jew nor an Israeli, I am a citizen of the EU-– so I have quite a different take on the whole situation compared to a descendant of the European settlers who claimed ownership of the entirety of the north American continent and vanquished the native Americans to refugee camps–oh!!, excuse me– Reservations-– and proceeded to decimate the entire population.

So you have little room to criticize the situation in Israel and the Palestinian Territories.

So to address your point-- In no way, shape or form do I represent Israel or the "true face" of Israel, as you claim! You are simply delusional and extremely misguided in your assessment of who I am and what I believe in!

But it appears from your final statement-- your belief is the only reason Israel can "bully" the Palestinians is because they are clueless!!

Amazing !!! Is this why they are still trying to obtain Statehood on the exact same piece of ground that was offered to them as an Arab State 62 years ago--and they were too "clueless" to accept it ????

Think about that one John boy!!!

miriam   November 12th, 2009 5:59 am ET

John A,

There is nothing arrogant about knowing what really goes on rather than reading hate-inspired, politically motivated, false claims and baseless blames and believing them.
To state that Israelis or those who defend Israel want to be superior and take-over the world is part of the misrepresentation of Israel that is a characteristic of the same forces who generate the false claims and blames and who are in fact the elements who themselves want to rule the world.
