    That or he was mistaken for a Palestinian trying to defend against being evicted from his home in the West Bank to make room for Jewish settlements. Either way, the cycle of violence continues.

    Tigger, just a slight change here: Israel did not exist during FDR’s lifetime. In 1945, as he was sailing back to the U.S. from his meeting in Teheran with Stalin & Attlee, his cruiser stopped near the Red Sea and picked up King Azziz- (I forget the full name). They discussed the upcoming U.N. resolution on establishing the state of Israel for the Jewish people, especially for all the surviving, displaced Jews of Europe. Azziz agreed that what the Nazis did was evil, terrible, but warned FDR that local Arab (Islamic) peoples would not tolerate a Jewish state in Palestine. He suggested that the Allies carve out a piece of Germany and give that land to the Jews. (This may sound naive to us, but it made perfect sense to the Arabs.) Most of the nations of the world felt bad about the Holocaust, but none wanted to take in any Jewish refugees either.

    FDR probably thought that the risk of U.S. backing would hurt our interests in the region (Oil) and promised Azziz that the U.S. would not support the U.N. resolution.
    Roosevelt died three weeks later.
    Weeks later, the U.S. delegates at the United Nations meeting, voted “YES”, supporting the resolution. Young Prince Faisal’s face was seen to change dramatically while hearing that American response. FDR’s promise died with him.

    I roll my eyes every time I hear about “mideast peace talks”. Could we just arm every citizen, cycle them through an arena in groups of 50, and last man standing gets to keep the holy land?

    How so? Jews evict Palestinians out of their homes in the West Bank to make room for new Jewish settlements and violence ensues. Palestinians strap bombs to themselves and blows up Jewish civilian areas and violence ensues. Either way the cycle of violence continues. Both sides are responsible for the continuation of violence. Both sides has blood on it’s hands.

    If it’s all about weapons to you, where does this god of peace come into the picture?

    “No, arabs, christians and jews all are equal in Israel. The “palestinians” have aligned themselves with murderers and corrupt, evil men.”

    Bull sh**.

    Had an interesting and wide ranging discussion with a Jewish fellow who’d emigrated from Israel to the U.S. a week ago at a rest area. We talked cars, archeology, and paleontology, then came military service, wars, and his native Israel. He, like I, finds Netanyahu and Likud to be despicable, in many ways, just like ETSEL and LESCHI Zionist terror organizations were. It isn’t all Israelis, or Jews, just like it wasn’t all Americans who supported the invasion of Iraq.

    Not everyone bought the con, from Cheney and Bush et al, or AIPAC and Likud.

    If you live next door to a neighbor that shells you and throws debris over the fence, how long are you going to hold your patience? Just like the 6 day war, the arabs shelled the Jews on a holy day. How would the Arabs like it if Israel strafed Mecca during Ramadan?
