    This is an Internet guide to help you study the Palestinian side of the crisis. The Pro-Israel side has a great influence over the mainstream information we receive in America this is less true on the Internet. The Internet can bring you right to the horse’s mouth. This Internet guide is designed to help people get information from the Palestinian perspective. Because of the economic and political strangle hold the Israelis have over the Palestinian establishment most of the information is from people and groups outside of Palestine.

    This Internet guide will help you get to the pro Palestinian think tanks, government and private intuitions, publications and actives. Where one get their information is as important as the information. Unfortunately when the government or establishment tells a lie or mistruth it becomes a fact for the time being. This is a big part of the problems in the Middle East today. Rarely is the truth heard over the lies. Although this is a Pro Palestinian Guide the goal is to get closer to the true understanding of the problems.

    David, I'm sure it's an oversite, but you forgot to mention CAIR which is doing quite well lobbying the US government.

    Thanks to You Tube the American people can hear the truth right from the horse’s mouth. Whether it is what former President Carter has to say about “Palestine Peace Not Apartheid” or what is really happening in the Palestinian-Israeli Crisis.

    You Tube Palestine Peace
    http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Palestine+Peace&search=Search

    This is one of the best short documentary movies on the Palestinian-Israeli Crisis. It is fair and balance showing the reality on the ground of this crisis. “Searching for Peace”
    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iev3K06xWOc[/ame] It is a must see for those people who want to understand the roots to the Palestinian-Israeli Crisis. The Foundation for Middle East Peace (FMEP) http://www.fmep.org/ sponsored the production of “Searching for Peace”. In cooperation with Alternative Focus; http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=AlternateFocus&search=Search By using the internet a person can get to the truth and understanding of many of the problems we face in the world today. Someone can get the information right from the horse’s mouth clearing up the fog of the lies of politics and wars. It is said a picture says a thousand words then “Searching for Peace” in twenty-eight minutes tells the modern lifetime story of the Palestinian society.

    Ever get the feeling some people post without reading the responses?

    My thoughts on Palestinians are fairly well summed up with this cartoon...

    Even Al-Jazeera's reporting supports it...

    I don't think anyone believes that jews don't get victimized by terrorism, or that some palestinian militants are crazy terrorists, who do kill anyone they can. The problem is presenting the situation as the norm, instead of showing the life a palestinian civilian leads under occupation and massive international law violations, and yes - indiscriminate killing. By Israel. Of civilians. using highly advanced weaponry at basically helpless target. The only way to retaliate with any effective results (i.e. people notice) is grotesque displays of violence. Negotiating? No success. UN? Everything gets vetoed. Try and do it themselves, via democracy? Nobody likes the choice, no more aid. Hmm.

    Ever see that ad? The chessboard with bullets on one side, rocks on the other? That sums up the bulk of the clashes... or just look at the numbers of dead. Compare IDF, and civilians, and then look at Palestinian militants and civilains, or Lebanese militants (Hezballah) and civilians.

    "I don't think anyone believes that jews don't get victimized by terrorism, some palestinian militants ARE crazy terrorists, who do kill anyone they can."

    That's how that should've read...
