For over 4,000 years the entire world has castigated the jews for various reason, most of which boil down to racism, plain and simple. The Arabs -- especially the Palestinians -- have a legitimate beef with the Isreali government, the Bristish, the UN, and the US. Let's not forget how the modern state of Israel came to be. (See UN Partition Plan 181 - Nov. 1947) http://www.masada2000.org/historical.html Here is a great timeline that summarizes the persecution of the Palestinians. www.palestinerefugees.org/HTML/history.htm Funny we never hear them referred to as persecuted. Now don't misunderstand me. I am not talking about Muslims like the ones that attacked us on 9/11. OBL and AQ have no justification for their actions in the Arab-Jew problem. This family feud goes back thousands of years before Islam even existed. Let's talk about some of the real issues and some real potential solutions. Let's try to keep the antisemitic comments out of the mix. Besides offending people, it only serves to destroy the credibility of your arguments.
