Prejudice against the Palestinians

Reader comment on item: [Israel's Gaza Withdrawal:] A Democracy Killing Itself

Submitted by becca (United States), Aug 22, 2005 at 18:43

Do some of you realize the way you are sounding. One guy basically said the Palestinians are incapable of ruling themselves. Isn't that what people said about other races. In mind there is definite racism by the way people talk about the Palestinians.

Plus, the Palestinians are hardly receiving complete freedom. The handovers are nothing but larger prison cells for the Palestinians. Where Israel controls their water, their air, their borders (etc.) Hardly independence, and not exactly equal. I wonder how some Americans would feel if they were a Palestinian being subject to the treatment these people are subject to.
