    Yes, and with guns, bombs and rockets.

    There’s a statement around somewhere about people becoming that which they hate most. Fidel Castro is a good example.. he was a freedom fighter against a horrible dictator who asked for aid from the US. but because of politics the US continued to support Batista, Castro turned to Russia for support, succeeded in his coup and became a dictator of a similar stripe.
    Jews probably hate Hitler (with VERY Good reason) most of any single individual because of his genocidal program. Now what are the Jewish people trying to do to the Arabs? It looks an awful lot like genocide…..

    Hmm, and to think, things were actually far more “peaceful” overall, under the Ottoman’s. It took European (and "American) intervention to really “screw the pooch”.

    Any bets on how many days this “Lasting Peace” will actually last??
    Sooner or later, someone somewhere over there is gonna pop off a small Nuke, and then all bets are off!

    On the belt-buckle of German soldiers through WW1 and WW2 was the embossed writing “Gott mit uns” (God with us), so at least they thought he was with them. Then again: which soldier over the centuries didn’t…

    I can be pretty critical of Israeli policy, but it’s hard to see that what they are doing is at all comparable to what Hitler did. I don’t see any evidence of “final solution” in Israeli policy. And I also wouldn’t equate Israel with “the Jewish people”.

    Of similar stripe? I don’t know. Batista had sold the island to U.S. corporate interests (Barcadi etc. had their distilleries there) and made his people work for them. He had legalized gambling as well, all very posh, for the rich Americans, while his citizens were starving and uneducated.

    -

    Castro’s Cuba is different in that they bilk the western tourists any way they can ($10 for a hamburger), and good for them I say! The people have better schools and health-care than in the U.S. and don’t have to work for the imperialists. Yes, it is a dictatorship, and a lot of people seeking freedom and riches flee Cuba, but all in all it’s been an improvement, and if the U.S. would lift the trade embargo Cuba could become what Fidel envisioned – but I guess he has to die first for that to happen…

    Israel is in exactly the same position that we have found ourselves in several times in the past.
    She is prevented from resolving the problem once and for all. Her opponent knows this, so all HamAss need do is hold on and begin again later. So HamAss agree to a truce until they can recuperate then they start in again, Then another truce. Then begin again. Ad infinitum ad nausuem.

    What ? you expect peace to break out among extremists ? Neither side is a democracy and power is all they want…the civil populations on both sides are the ones who need to wise up.

    1. The first holocaust (by that name) was in medieval England.


    2. In the 19th century, the UK was trying to maintain a massive colonial empire, and said all Jews in the UK must repay UK hospitality by colonising Palestine for the UK.


    3. Most farmers in Palestine were tenant farmers. The land changed hands, but the Arab tenant farmers remained. British Jews bought the land and evicted the Arab tenant farmers. The Arabs agreed such purchases were illegal: the Law is the Law, and property ownership in Palestine was restricted to the Arab landed gentry.


    4. In the ‘30s and ’40s, Europeans said they’d kill all Jews that remained in Europe. Every country refused to accept the Jewish refugees. Britain said Palestine was ONLY for UK Jews.


    5. After the unconditional surrender of the Axis in ‘45, the Concentration Camps were renamed Refugee Camps. Inmates were no longer starved and gassed, and, when they died, could have proper funerals and burials, but the Refugee Camps still bore an eerie semblance to Concentration Camps.


    6. In the late ’40s, the US demanded that all Jewish refugees be sent to Palestine. Those Jews displaced most of the Palestinian tenant farmers, who pointed out that the law restricted ownership of land to Arabs.


    7. Truman recognised the state of Israel, but then Eisenhower forced the Jews to leave Egypt in ’56. The Jordanians and Egyptians wanted their lands back, and fought two wars, losing both, then dropped all claims to Palestine, saying it all belongs to the Palestinans.


    8. After the US backed Egypt against France, Britain, and Israel, the US tried to impose unacceptable conditions on the Arabs, and the Arabs turned to the USSR, so the US turned to Israel and began shipping arms.


    9. The rest of the world promised to kill all Jews that didn’t migrate to Palestine. The Arabs promised to kill all Jews that did migrate to Palestine, and most Arab states expelled their large, minority Jewish populations, all of which went to Israel. More and more Palestinians were displaced to make room for Jews forced into Palestine by governments who said Jews could not stay.


    It is clear that both Israelis and Palestinians are NOT to blame, but those two are the only groups that are innocent, like two gladiators forced into the Colliseum. If one kills the other, the blame accrues to the Emperor and his thumb, and the entire world, except for the Israelis and Palestinians, has played the role of the Emperor’s thumb.

    @red…“Now what are the Jewish people trying to do to the Arabs? It looks an awful lot like genocide…..”
    -
    FYI the Hebrew-Jewish people founded modern Israel, returning in the prophesied world-wide regathering by God to the Promised Land of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The world and the Jews called it the Zionist movement, the Return…aliya.
    -
    The Arabs (a small number) and a remnant of Jews had been living side by side….the Jews moved into a neglected land oppressed by the Ottoman Empire until 1917…Mark Twain visited and called it “A Waste Land”….Jews bought up land and began restoring it into a blooming desert.
    -
    Then more Arabs moved in and began fighting the Jews. In 1947 the UN offered mandate lands not given to Jordan previously, be split into 2 states, 1 state for Jews and 1 state for Arabs. The Arabs rejected statehood because they cannot acknowledge the existence of a Jewish State.
    -
    Arabs began war after war against Israel….May 1948 the first and again 1956, 1967 (when Israeli Jews captured Jerusalem which had been ruled by Jordan since 1948)
    and war again in 1973. In between the Arabs under Arafat and the PLO carried out aggression against the Jews.
    -
    The only “Genocide” being tried in Palestine is the Extermination of Jews by Arabs. The Jews have not threatened or aggressed in a genocide of Arabs. Jews have defended Israel. Jews do much to keep the Perpetual “Refugees” since 1948 provided with water and power and medical care, etc. The Arab states, rich and with much more land than Israel has, deliberately do not take refugees to become citizens in Arab states, not even in Jordan that was cut out of the Mandated Lands in an unfair award by Britain before the UN took over.
    ….it is false accusation to say that Jews are trying to do genocide against Arabs.

    hamAss has declared genocide intent on Israel. hamAss uses rockets because they cannot get to unarmed Israel civilians to kill directly. The Israel Wall seems to be working.
    I suggest Israel turn the Egypt- Gaza border into a demilitarized zone and dig a 200 foot deep trench all the way to the sea with a border-crossing bridge. Tunnels going under the trench will have air quality issues.

    Choices for dealing with the bad behavior of Gaza (remember that Palestinians approve of their leaders):
    Containment
    Deportation
    Extermination
    Since Israel has ‘issues’ with extermination, let’s forget about the extermination option.
    Since there does not seem to be a way to keep missiles out of Gaza and hamAss has every intention on using them again, let’s forget about the containment option.
    Since Arab and Muslim countries have proven that they will not allow Palestinians into their land, let’s forget about the deportation option.
    Since there are no more options, let’s just bulldoze the buildings in Gaza and give them tents.

    The Embargo was set upon Cuba by a Democrat President named John Fitzgerald Kennedy during the Cuban Missile Crisis when we learned Cuba had Russian Nukes aimed at us.
