“Dear president Ahmadinejad: please die…”
Amen to that.
He needs to die…
although I can’t help but feel we may have contributed to his election by invading the country next door.. then again, the insane mullahs basically disqualified anyone who wasn’t like him from running.. so it’s not surprising..
i find it incredible that there are people anywhere on earth that still believe that…
So what did he think happened in those gas chambers? A nice rubdown by a Nordic model? Maybe a reenactment would be in order he could have the roll of a Jew and see first hand how well the “model” treated him.
My thoughts exactly.
I had a horrible vision of us going to war over this…but Bush is too broke to do it.
I wholly disagree with his statement that the Holocaust never happened, but he does have a point here:
“If you [Europeans] committed this big crime, then why should the oppressed Palestinian nation pay the price?”
I don’t believe that Europe (and the US) had any right to give the Israelis Palestine. I mean, imagine how outraged we’d be if there was a Sioux genocide done in Iran and the Sioux people were given South Dakota without our consent?
That being said, what’s done is done.
Can you name a better location? The Jews needed nation of their own, and there was no palestinian nation at the time.
The “oppressed palestinian nation” is as much the result of the policy of the local Arab nations as it is Israel’s fault.
I may be ignorant here, but I’m pretty sure there was a Palestinian nation at the time… If I’m wrong, can you send me some links or something?
Well, I think part of Germany would have been a good idea. In fact, I really think that slapping Israel smack in the middle of the rest of the Middle East might just have been the worst possible location for them. They would have been more welcome pretty much anywhere else in the world.
The Palestine problem became an international issue towards the end of the First World War with the disintegration of the Turkish Ottoman Empire. Palestine was among the several former Ottoman Arab territories which were placed under the administration of Great Britain under the Mandates System adopted by the League of Nations pursuant to the League’s Covenant (Article 22) .
All but one of these Mandated Territories became fully independent States, as anticipated. The exception was Palestine where, instead of being limited to “the rendering of administrative assistance and advice” the Mandate had as a primary objective the implementation of the “Balfour Declaration” issued by the British Government in 1917, expressing support for “the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people”.
During the years of the Palestine Mandate, from 1922 to 1947, large-scale Jewish immigration from abroad, mainly from Eastern Europe took place, the numbers swelling in the 1930s with the notorious Nazi persecution of Jewish populations. Palestinian demands for independence and resistance to Jewish immigration led to a rebellion in 1937, followed by continuing terrorism and violence from both sides during and immediately after World War II. Great Britain tried to implement various formulas to bring independence to a land ravaged by violence. In 1947, Great Britain in frustration turned the problem over to the United Nations.
Wikipedia is an excellent starting place, but unfortunately their Palestine coverage is spread across numerous articles so it’s difficult to point to a single article and say “start here”.
Whatever would have made the most sense rationally, I think it’s safe to say that the Jews would not have returned to any land other than Palestine. And, as Aeolis says, what’s done is done. Crimes have been committed on all sides, but now is the time to move on and learn to live with each other.
Thankfully that old thief Arrafat is dead, and Sharon (of all people) is kicking the settlers out, and things are looking brighter than they have in a long time.
