Eventually Destiny Takes its Toll - 'Palestinian' Destiny is Limited

Reader comment on item: Updates on the Israeli Arab Paradox
in response to reader comment: Palestine: The hate crime capital of the world

Reader Dave cites:
"The recent killing of 19 Jews in Israel by Muslims around the time of Ramadan was accompanied by extensive rioting in the Temple Mount Area and Joseph's Tomb."
All pretences to civility adise, these are religious acts of war, the toleration of which goes back centuries to when an isolated and defenseless Israel bore the brunt of common and not so common acts of hatred, all of which cost them their Temple, their nation, their religious identity and so many other unspoken and unmentionable acts of violence, self imposed and other wise. One might think they have a dark cloud hovereing over their existence: oh wait, they do!
Why do the 'Palestinians' think they have an expressed 'right' to the mayhem they caused on the 'holy' perion of Ramadan? Who was the intellectual that determined that such a perversion of civility was the appropriate response to a national ethnic identity to a people that most who understand history know these are the Children of Abraham, no matter who would argue unsuccessfuly that they are not. Yet the hatred is so deep seated: why? There is reason; but there is no rationality that would explore that seriously since no one wants to acknowledge the truth that it points to: Israeli sovereignty actually does survive when all others are found wanting. That's what they hate: they cannot win.
