    All of these mideast wars are about nationalism, not religion. People use religion to raise devoted armies for their nationalistic causes.

    It has nothing to do with religion. The Palestinians were those thrown out of other countries such as Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia for trying to overthrow the governments there. Now Israel is not allowed to throw them out and are forced to accept them.

    And you worship football and the Karshians, so what is your point?

    That may be true for some of the militants, just as some of the Taliban are were not Afghan. That said, civilians lived the in the land the UN took to create the modern Israeli state. They were displaced to make room for the Israeli state. With Israel settling the land they seized in the 60s, those displaced citizens are being displaced again.

    The cycle of violence is thus: Militants bomb Israeli military installations or innocent civilians. Militants have no military installations, so Israel retaliates by bombing civilian populations, killing innocent women and children. Some previously innocent civilians reach the breaking point and become anti-Israel militants. Those new militants bomb….

    Ethnocentric analysis: “All of these mideast wars are about nationalism, not religion. People use religion to raise devoted armies for their nationalistic causes”
    If you believe in cultural diversity, at very least just tray a little bit to believe what people of other cultures tell you.
    For Jews: you’re probably right. Most aren’t very religious and are very Western. Not much of a cultural hurdle to leap.
    For Palestinians: they say it’s about Islam. Loudly. Don’t be so paternalistic.

    Chillbilly and Jase99 have the facts of the matter. Throughout history, power hungry people have used religion to convince the masses to join and support wars.
    But G Ricks has the rules.
    Good omments folks.

    Is there really any reason we should give a rats a$$ one way or the other? Cut off the funding and let it go to hell.

    Normally I would ignore you, but when you accuse me of loving the Kardashian (or Kardasians as you call them) you go too far, sir! i would challenge you to a battle of wits but…(nah, too easy!)

    Israel still rules and the Palestinians are still marginalized. They are split in two and they are about to lose an important part of their territory. When that happens they will be lost. Israeli leaders believe in one country one Israel one Jewish state.

    i wish everyone was as zealous about boundaries throughout the world as they are about the palestinians.

    Or else we could forget about borders altogether and just think about people.

    @Jase99

    “…civilians lived the in the land..” The story I heard was: Israel bought the land.
    The people who left their homes and crossed the border during the 6-Day War had conspired with the Invaders and did not come back because they feared consequences for their betrayal.

    Perhaps you did not read carefully. Jase99 wrote, “Militants bomb Israeli military installations or innocent civilians.” He/she included BOTH. And that is accurate.
