Claire, you say "They have one tiny little piece of property, and all you want to do is condemn them and take it from them."

But the land is not theirs in the first place, many Palestinians where expelled and they don't have the right to return. I have seen many documentaries showing old Palestinian men holding the keys of their old houses and the certificate of ownership of their houses and their fields in Palestine that they cannot have back.

Is this Justice - There are Arab Jews in Palestine, they lived there for centuries, but the people who control the place are not the Arab Jews nor any Arabs, Who control the land are those who came from Poland, Hungaria, Russia, Germany .... you name it, they came from every place in Europe, and they don't have our culture, nor our values, nor our ethics. How can we accept them? and especially they took the land by force. The Majority of the Jews in Palestine now are those who come from outside the Arab world they dominate the place. They are NOT NATIVE JEWS of the LAND.

This tiny piece is now like a cancer in the Arab world, all around it are Arabs, Arab countries, even in the 1930s Palestine was dominated by Arabs, with the Arab Jews are minority. Now the Arab Jews are still minority, but the Jews from Europe are majority, and they look down at the Arab Jews they consider them second citizens, how do you think the Muslims and the Christians are considered?

Do you Agree USA become dominant Muslim country and ruled by the Muslims and by Force.

This issue is not ancient, it just happened yesterday, 60 years ago, people are still suffering from it until now because of the displacement.
