    Palestinian officials are rolling out the welcome mat for Jews to come to a new Palestinian state.

    Trying to tamp down a controversy over whether a Palestinian state would be Jew-free, Mahmoud Habbash, the Palestinian minister of religious affairs, said a future state would be open to people of all religions, including Jews.

    “The future Palestinian state will be open to all its citizens, regardless of their religion,” Habbash said, according to USA Today. “We want a civil state, which in it live all the faiths, Muslim, Christian and Jews also if they agree, (and) accept to be Palestinian citizens.”

    There are quite a few Jews who oppose Israel, so I wonder if they'll take them up on that offer.

    This guy seems like he'd be interested"

    I don't really agree with what he says in the sense that I think Israel should exist.

    What do Mr. Krauthammer's words have anything to do with what I just said?

    I hope Abbas's words are honest. He can say anything now since he has no chance of getting a state. But will he really be able to control people to make sure there is no violence against Jews? Arabs and Jews lived side by side for centuries, not just in the Holy Land, but in Yemen, Iran, etc. Everything fell apart in the 20th Century and now I wonder if it's at a point of no return.

    I wonder if any of the Palestinian Christian Arabs will come back to Palestine. I just read recently that 40% of the Palestinian Christian Arabs live in Latin America now.

    Israel is sovereign Jewish land dating back 3000 years verified by the archaeological record.

    Can you provide an archaeological record of any Palestinian civilization in Israel? No, I didn't think so. :lol:

    Israel has been driving Christians out of the holy land since before its inception.
