Khaled,

Just imagine what a wonderful world we would "all" have , if on that day in history, the moderate Syrians, Saudis, Jordanians, Lebanese and whoever else were allied in the invasion of the new Jewish homeland had just said.."hell no we wont go" to borrow an old 60's liberal commie phrase from here.

Since the decision to implement a return to their ancestral homeland was primarily orchestrated by the British

(Reference the Churchill White papers of 1920 or so and the Balfour agreement from even earlier, for help to the Jews, especially in WW2 for helping to get Russia to open a second front against the Nazi's. And would I be remiss to also mention at this point, most Arabs of the region including the Palestinians during WW2 were "allied" with the Nazis at that time)

it would then logically seem your disagreement would and should be more geared towards England. Thus your hatred for America by association with its allies at that time shouldn't really matter to us at this time since you were on the losing side both times back then anyways, and is now..ancient history.

Also as far as history goes, back to the days of recorded time, losers usually dont make the rules about the spoils of war.

Or possibly you are not really angry at the Jews but the fact that you sided with loser Germany and Italy and Japan and got lumped into that brew at the end, losing land instead of millions of men and major cities razed to the ground. A few sq. kilometers of desert seems such a cheaper price to pay so why not accept it. Logically also allying with US and England and NATO now , could make up for many earlier boneheaded decisions, if we take history into account. But one thing we in the West will never take for granted is your capability to form logical rational thoughts divorced from emotion.

Besides, the Jews were killing English at the time too to establish their homeland and were bringing in more people than agreed but the imams at the time were also paid handsomely , $50 to $100 million pounds I believe, to look the other way. Shouldn't your hatred be towards your own imams then who essentially sold you out? Go blow them up. Maybe you have hatred for us because we let our allies do this to you by not getting more involved back then? Maybe? Perhaps?

Well the rest of the world didn't get involved either so are you hating them? Oh yah..you are:)

Look at Africa, Thailand, the Phillipenes, Kashmir, bombings in spain, England etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

Too bad..live with it.

Submitting....
