    Easy One...1500 years ago there were no muslims in the middle east. After Mo's death Islam began to spread through out the area through the old Convert or death method. These areas were populated by Christians Jews And many other religions. To date there are now 22 Muslim theocracies in the middle east, made possible by a continental murderous rampage that continues today. The area that Israel is in is just another land area targeted by the war lords of Islam. Can someone tell us how to say hello in Palestinian? No such language because there has never been a Palestine country.Jews have lived in this area for more than 2000 years before MO was born. By the way if you do not believe that it continues til today, here is a list of all the countries that MUslims killed in the name of Allah, THIS DECADE!! I think there are 65 of them.

    India and the Sudan and Algeria and Afghanistan and New York and Pakistan and Israel and Russia and Chechnya and the Philippines and Indonesia and Nigeria and England and Thailand and Spain and Egypt and Bangladesh and Saudi Arabia and Ingushetia and Dagestan and Turkey and Morocco and Yemen and Lebanon and France and Uzbekistan and Gaza and Tunisia and Kosovo and Bosnia and Mauritania and Kenya and Eritrea and Syria and Somalia and California and Kuwait and Virginia and Ethiopia and Iran and Jordan and United Arab Emirates and Louisiana and Texas and Tanzania and Germany and Australia and Pennsylvania and Belgium and Denmark and East Timor and Qatar and Maryland and Tajikistan and the Netherlands and Scotland and Chad and Canada and China and Nepal and the Maldives and Argentina and Mali and Angola and coming to your country soon!!

    Why do Jews think that land belongs to them? How would the world look today if we all went back to where we were 2,000 YEARS AGO and kicked out the people who are there now because our ancestors were there 2,000 years ago?? Are you having yourself a laugh here rabbi?? The land is rightfully Arab (christian and muslim) because the Arabs fought 8 crusades over the land and we won. Likewise, the Christians fought to take the land. Regardless, neither side had help from jews, they were in Europe where everybody hated them.

    Why do Israeli soldiers use Palestinian civilians as human shields in Gaza? (go check the news you will see, this report just came out today)

    Why do Israeli commanders order their men to shoot first and worry about the consequences later?

    Why did Mossad do 9/11?

    Why does "occupied Palestine" build jewish settlements

    Why does "occupied Palestine" build an apartheid wall?

    Why did "occupied Palestine" bomb the uss liberty, killing 34 American sailors?

    Why did the israeli 'half-humans' run over american peace activist rachel corrie with a bulldozer?

    Tell Israel to declare boarders and then we'll talk about the maps.

    From the Palestine National Charter of 1964. For your enjoyment here are some excerpts:

    Article 16: ...the people of Palsetine, desiring to befriend all nations

    which love freedom, justice, and peace, look forward to their support in

    restoring the legitimate situation to Palsetine, ... and [in] enabling its

    people to exercise national sovereignty and freedom.

    Article 24: This Organization does not exercise any territorial sovereignty over the West Bank in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, [or] on the Gaza Strip

    The founding document of the PLO says that they are not entitled to the West Bank or Gaza! Yet now much of the West believes that the cause of the conflict is the Israeli presence in parts of the West Bank! When the PLO wrote their charter Jordan was in control of the West Bank and they wanted Jordanian support. Their goal was to annihilate Israel not a state in the West Bank. Zuheir Mohsein, a member of the supreme council of the PLO said, in an interview with the Dutch Daily Trouw (3/31/1977):

    There are no differences between Jordanians, Palsetinians, Syrians and Lebanese. We are all part of one nation. It is only for political reasons that we carefully underline our Palsetinian identity, because it is in the interest of the Arabs to encourage a separate Palsetinian identity in contrast to Zionism. Yes, the existence of a separate Palsetinian identity is there only for tactical reasons. The establishment of a Palsetinian state is a new expedient to continue the fight against Zionism and for Arab unity.

    The wars in the Middle East are about fighting Zionism, the right of the Jews to Israel, not about creating a terrorist Palsetinian State. That is just a brilliant and very successful tactic.

    The Bush administration apparently belived that Israeli withdrawals will lead to peace. This misconception was addressed eloquently by Reuel Marc Gerecht in the Wall Street Journal 4/8/02. He wrote:

    Does the administration really believe that if all the Israeli settlements in the West Bank and Gaza were removed--they occupy less than 1.5% of these territories--and East Jerusalem became Palsetinian, the kamikazes would stop? Former prime minister Ehud Barak essentially offered this deal at Camp David in July 2000, but Yasser Arafat rejected it, preferring to unleash the second intifada.

    And that tells it all, thats why.

    Israel hasn't existed for 2000 years, and even then for only a couple hundred years. Why should we put it on our maps? The place you are referring to is called Palestine.

    Persian Gulf isnt on Arab maps either. Arabs are not that good with geography.

    I guess they have succeeded in wiping Israel off the map, they can stop fighting now.

    Countries that don't recognize Israel as a country don't recognize it on maps as well, it is really that obvious.

    Why isn't there Palestine on Western maps?

    You know Arabs don't belive the Israelis own the land "Israel" they belive its still the Palestinians.

    "Who defeated you in so many wars, then?" <-- wtf? I mean seriously. The Israelis murdered innocent people and disturbed countries that did them NO harm.

    Arabs have every right not to put Israel on THEIR maps.

    What are you going to do, start a war against them for that reason?

    If they were to acknowledge Israel's right to exist it would take all the wind out of their sails and they wouldn't have any rationalization to continue the fight.
