in response to reader comment: Raqib, here is the answer to your accusations.

Lets start with a very simple example, If you drive me away from my own home, what would you expect me to do. Walk away. Wont I fight for my home? The world can see even you can see how Israeli Bulldozers turns palestinians home to debris. When a muslim raises its arm to protect his or her family from the Israeli aggression, some people will still say, "terrorist".

I very much agree to what you have said, "Arab terrorist tactic to use civilians, and whenever possible children, as human shields." However you are forgetting how Israeli tanks, aircraft, gunship entered Gaza and Ramallah when Gaza and Ramallah legally belongs to Palestinians under UN sanctions. Rabbi Dovi Weiss has said: "The Jewish people are commanded by Almighty God to live in peace with all peoples and nations on the face of the globe. Our agenda is simple It is to humbly worship the Creator at all times. As Torah Jews we are called upon to feel and express our sense of compassion when any person or group of human beings suffers." It is very pathetic that Jewish people diverted from their religion and started to practice Zionism. Which is Racism and aggresion.

Brother Moshe you can see human sufferings in Palestinians in the time of winter and no home. We knew the human sufferings when they Queen Isabella drove out the Jews from the Gaul of Spain, during that time it was the Islamic Ottoman Empire who allowed the Jews to dwell in their cities with honour. When Jews were thrown out of Jeusalem by the crusaders it was Saladin who brought the Jews back to Jerusalem. Jews were forced to pay special tax on Khosher meat and Sabbath Candles. Jewish women were not allowed to live in the big cities of Europe without the yellow ticket of a prostitute.

During that time an Arab whom you hate from the bottom of your heart didnot do that when Jews dwelled in their land. Massacre by Czar's soldier, Gas chamber of Hitler are the examples. And knowing all these things your leaders sit and plot conspiracy to drive out Moslems from Jerusalem. State of Isreal was created by aggression, not by the People who believes in Judaism but by the people who beleives in Zionism. Arab Jews are the descendents of Prophet Abraham and the people of Prophet Moses and Solomon. We are shocked when we see the descendants of Abraham dances on the finger tip of European Jews like Theodor Herzl, David Ben-Gurion and many more. When they have nothing to do with the city of Jerusalem. Jerusalem is the Holy city of Islam, Judaism and Christianity.
