So which is it? Are the Palis  brave fighters willing to fight and die for their cause or are they hapless victims of Donald Trum?  You can't have it both ways.


Really RD I thought you were smarter than that: NOTHING in life is clear-cut, black-and-white, right-and-wrong - LEAST of all the Arab-Israeli conflict. They can have it both ways, because both statements are true. I've been to Israel, worked with and befriended Israelis for many years, and some Israelis, a minority, are "peaceniks", who see the Arabs not as enemies but as potential partners. Same applies to the Palestinians: some are barely disguised Jihadists, and others, the majority, JUST WANT THEIR LAND BACK. Think it's nice to live your whole life under the heel of the Israeli military? Having some young sneering soldier ordering you around at checkpoints? It gets to you. You should try it.

Re: So now Trump has blood on his hands.

He lived in East Jerusalem, born in the 1940s. His father ran a school. They were an old Coptic Christian Arab family. They were driven out by 1949, had to leave their home and the school. They went to Ramallah with many other Palestinian families. He got a scholarship to a university in the U.S. Midwest. He told us his story. We never forgot.

Re: So now Trump has blood on his hands.

God knows who Continental Army's are, but NH's graphic should be sending you to the give it back to them Bank.

The Palestinians are a beleaguered people who in their own small scale way are STILL fighting for their rights.

Probably just the same way resistance units in Europe did under Hitlers rule., and probably the way Britain would have pushed back had the swastika flown over Buckingham Palace.

WE the spectators are whining on about Israels abuses, and the Palestinians ARE Fighting. One inacurate low power rocket and a few stones at a time. as compared to a major military machine.

So yes we can have it both ways.
