The basic problem is the killing, theft and expulsion of Palestinians

Bob, the whole Islamic world is demanding that Palestine be established in place of Israel.

I asked, upon what Holy Spiritual Authority (because Islam IS a religion...see) does the whole Islamic body demand the establishment of Palestine? They have none. None exists.

The Hamas are at the very heart of the fighting going on in the region. Anyone denying that fact...is not being honest. And the reason the Hamas do what they do (send mortar attacks to Israel daily) is thier Koran. Just ask them. They'll tell you the same. It is their duty....according to thier Koran. They can't stop. They will not stop. And so, the fighting will continue.

Until the facts (that existed long before any of us were even born) are confronted, the bloodshed is going to continue.

Not once did i defend any nationality...or condemn. I simply pointed out some facts that are ignored daily by the voices of this world.

I asked a simple question to 'Palestine's' BIGGEST supporter - the whole body of Islam - and yes, the question is 'religious' in nature....but isn't that what Islam is? a religion?

not just any religion, mind you...but one that has caused much bloodshed over the issue.

And i have yet to recieve a Koran writing (the sole supreme authority) of all of Islam...for an answer...concerning the establishment of the name Palestine in place of the name Israel.

It's an important question. It involves the cause that is called 'Peace'.

Islam is either a religion of peace....or it's not. It is either a body that fights for the truth...or it is not.

The Bible, on the other hand, does mention the name Palestine...for end times, and condemned it.

To be witnesses of a prophecy that is 1000's of yrs old, and one which is such a hot issue for the whole world in these present times - is an amazing fact, Bob. A fact that you refuse to give due credit.

I believe these facts can establish peace....

but only when the people of the world are willing to be honest about the facts.
