Logical to want to live under Israeli rule........

Reader comment on item: Palestinians Who Prefer Israel

Submitted by Froike (United States), Feb 8, 2013 at 08:05

I equate Israel and Palestine as such. Israel a nursing mother, giving a child nourishment in the form of electricity, fuel, water, and the basic needs of civilized modern life. The Palestinians are on the receiving end of the equation. Why does a child want to kill the only mother that will provide for it's essential needs?

Let's face facts, most Arab Countries see the Palestinians as a "pain in the tuchas"...As an Israeli and a Jew, I was not nurtured on hatred. I was brought up to treat people as they treat me. I've met many Palestinians in Israel and the US who, person to person, do not hate Jews or Israeli's. It must be difficult for them to overcome the institutionalized education of racist propaganda dished out to them as children. Arabs in general, that are exposed to dealings with Jews on a person to person basis usually come to realize that Jews/Israeli's are not evil and are certainly not the descendents of "Apes and Pigs". Rather, we share a common Semitic heritage and share more similarities than differences. Call me naive, but the only way to a better way of life for all Arabs and Jews is to pursue a path not of tolerance, but of brotherhood. We are after all, cousins and descendants of Avraham Avinu. It's time to end the family feud and make our ancestors happy and proud.....Imagine what progress we could make in the Middle East as a united front!!!!!
