Palestinians are the victims, is crazy but true. The truth is Palestinians is a made up name of Jordan and other native people of the area left behind after a defeat in war.

Not sure who started the new name of a very old name (Palestinians) for the people left behind. I can make a bet that you cannot prove Yasser was Palestinian. What was his true background, maybe from Egypt. I as one man am tired of the lies and I will start taking action by addressing these e-mails or stories as I see them. Isreal has offered Jobs and work to the Palestinian people and the jobs have been taken.

When you cross the line and enter into Palestinian areas you can see the people are in distress. It is like going from the USA to Mexico, how is it that 100 feet can change the way you eat or be able to eat. If you took a big step back and looked at the Earth from outspace. One would have to ask, why are some people happy and have money and security and other so close have nothing. If you could look even closer at the soul of men and see the ones with Money and happy also have good hearts toward there fellow man. The poor do not have good hearts but a hatred and blame their problems on the ones with money. They feel if they can destroy the people with money and all things that bring money into there lives they will feel better. There is a saying, no one wants to suffer alone. Does a man love his child if he hopes his child can die killing another??

I will, to make it easy call the people that have lived on the land for many many years Palestinians. I agree they lived there before the return of the Jews. I agree before the Jews came there many thousands of years ago the Palestinians lived there. Again (Palestinian = all peoples except Jews living in Israel). As a human I even agree that the Palestinians have the right to challenge by war the Jews for the land. they did and lost. This is not the end of the story, they are sore losers?? No not at all, just people who have been thrown out of the land they lived in.

No different than the American Indian, except for two things. One the American Indian stopped killing a long time ago(I don't think they killed children on purpose). They now live in peace and have the same hopes and dreams as any other American. The second and biggest is (GOD). GOD has told us what will happen what has happend and why. This my friend is why I don't hate Palestinian people, but I don't agree with killing children either( this goes for both sides). God said you are free to join his family via Jesus or else. I as a non Jew decided to Join the winning team. But I will not hate you for not joining the team of GOD. I can only hope in the end we all make the correct choice before it is to late.

One thing to think about, America has so much money and good blessing they have to be from GOD. There is no way a people can make so much money and have what we have without GOD. I bet the more we turn from GOD the more we will lose. If we keep on the path of the Democratic party we will change our laws and turn away from GOD. The Bible has been clear once you make your laws denoucing GOD you are done. Today we are one nation under GOD and no one can dispute we are the wealthest nation on earth becasue of his blessings. If GOD is not the reason for this, then we are better people. This cannot be true because all people are equally able to do what we do. The only difference is GOD.

Good luck.
