Jamal,

You accuse Prashant of being ignorant of facts or just hearsay in his comments about the factually documented use by Hamas of human shields in innumerable examples. You explain away their behavior as a weak vs strong thing, so the ends justify the means, right?

Well, you make a blatantly false statement when you refer to the Palestinians' "historical Palestine"'. Try reading some history books.

Historical Palestine had nothing to do with todays manufactured 'Palestinians'. They were called that only after 1967 when Arafat began his charade about the Palestinian 'people'. Sure, there have been peoples living in 'Palestine' for many centuries; Jews, Christians,and Arabs. There has never been a Palestinian 'people', no leaders before arafat, no currency, no flag no nothing. Its manufactured. In fact, the Jews called themselves Palestinians in the end of last century and beginning of this one. I am really hoping that you are objective and honest enough to look this up, instead of spewing what YOU have been 'hearing all your life'.
