Good morning Mona!

Suddenly it turns out that those "poor women, children, and young people" in the Israeli jail are kept there for very good reasons and now you are just asking me "what make them act violently towards your "innocent" people?"

Therefore your initial claim that: "first of all, having two or three hostages is not for blackmail, it is to exchange them with thousands of prisoners inside the Israeli camps most of them are women, children, and young people who were taken from crossroads if anyone of them just open his mouse and demonstrate against the brutal and aggressiveness of the Israeli soldiers." is refuted by your own subsequent claims. And when you write "innocent" with quotation marks it tells me clear and loud that as far as you are concerned, there are no innocent people living in Israel, and in your eyes they are all legitimate targets for terrorist attacks.

To cut a long story short, you demonstrated that you are not able to provide a reasonable answer to none of my simple questions. You have the nerve to accuse Israel with genocide, but you are not able to explain why a 20% Arab minority can live happily in Israel as equal citizens, but no Jew is tolerated in Arab controlled areas. In one place you are suggesting that Israel should confine herself to the pre-1967 "green line" borders, but on your second breath you are trying to tell me that "Amazingly, you are describing your swallowing up the Palestinian lands as "independence" , and at the same time calling people who are trying to liberate themselves as "terrorists"; what, are you suffering from a self-blindness or is it a chronic case of paradox?"

Well my darling, I am suffering of none of these, but as per your constant habit, you are blaming others with your own faults. On top of all these, obviously you are suffering also of a pathological hatred against Jews instilled in you by the Anti-Semitic Nazi literature which you have no doubt read plenty at home.

Even though I have serious doubts that it may help in your case, I am recommending you go try and learn something about the history of the Jewish People from some reliable sources and not some more of the Nazi garbage you are flooded with. It will teach you that what you are calling Palestine is the historical Land of Israel given by God to the Jewish People.

This is the only land on the face of this earth which belongs to us, and only to us. In spite of that, when Jews had the chance to return home, to a deserted Palestine, after almost 1900 years in exile, they did it peacefully and not by force. They bought uninhabitable marshlands and deserts from the local Palestinian landlords and turned them into a "Paradise on Earth".

The local (and relatively sparse) Palestinian Arab population benefited greatly from the prosperity brought about by the home bound Jews, and thus, the influx of the Jewish settlers generated a parallel influx of Arabs from the surrounding countries into the till then almost deserted Palestine. But the Mullahs didn't like this peaceful coexistence and understanding between Jews and Arabs. They incited the Arab population against the Jews bringing about the Arab "revolution" and pogroms of the early 19-ies.

This was still before the proclamation of the State of Israel. With the proclamation of the State of Israel, it was immediately attacked by the surrounding Arab countries, including Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. They called upon the Palestinian Arab population to evacuate temporarily the fighting areas to make easier for them to wipe out the "invading" Jews. But unfortunately for them, they lost that war, and also the rest of the wars in which they tried in vain to destroy Israel.

Unlike Israel, which in the following years settled and absorbed millions of homebound Jews from all over the world, the Arabs meticulously kept their Palestinian refugees in miserable refugee camps, using them till our days as a breeding ground for terrorism against Israel.

Well my dear, this may perhaps also provide you some unexpected answers to some of your earlier questions and accusations.
