Apparently you are quite ignorant of the facts. firstly Jews have been living in Palestine far longer than any Arab or Muslim concurred and occupied that region secondly when the Jews finally regained their independence the Arab Muslims tried to "push them into the sea" the reason for this is the inherant racism and intolorance indoctrinated into every facet of the Muslim society and when the Jewish people proved capable of self defence the Arab propoganda machine decided the only way to destroy the small fledgling nation was to create the "Palastinian" problem and revise and distort history to legitimize Muslim claim to the land and to manipulate the people who have a soft heart for the struggle against the Jews. The Apartheid is quite clearly against non-Muslims such as myself I am a Palestinian athiest I am a Muslim from birth but I have renounced Islam because of the atrocities being perpetrated against the Christians and Jews in the West Bank I have first hand knowledge of the occupation and the occupation is that of the Arabs not the "Zionists".
