    Don't be such a demagogue- do your homework. There is no such thing as the Palestinian people, just a bunch of nomads kicked out and in the *** by just about every other Middle eastern country who didn't want to feed and support them. How far back do you wantto go? Find me the legitimate history of the so-called palestinians and I'll eat these words...

    I think all you really need to do is look at the history of Israel. They should be pretty parallel.

    Source: Wikipedia

    The first wave of Jewish immigration to Israel, or Aliyah (עלייה) started in 1881 as Jews fled persecution, or followed Socialist Zionist ideas of Moses Hess and others of "redemption of the soil". Jews bought land from Ottoman and individual Arab landholders. After Jews established agricultural settlements, tensions erupted between the Jews and Arabs.

    Theodor Herzl (1860-1904), an Austrian Jew, founded the Zionist movement. In 1896, he published Der Judenstaat (The Jewish State), in which he called for the establishment of a national Jewish state. The following year he helped convene the first World Zionist Congress.

    The establishment of Zionism led to the Second Aliyah (1904-1914) with the influx of around 40,000 Jews. In 1917, the British Foreign Secretary Arthur J. Balfour issued the Balfour Declaration that "view[ed] with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people". In 1920, Palestine became a League of Nations mandate administered by Britain.

    Jewish immigration resumed in third (1919-1923) and fourth (1924-1929) waves after World War I. Arab riots in Palestine of 1929 killed 133 Jews, including 67 in Hebron.

    The rise of Nazism in 1933 led to a fifth wave of Aliyah. The Jews in the region increased from 11% of the population in 1922 to 30% by 1940. The subsequent Holocaust in Europe led to additional immigration from other parts of Europe. By the end of World War II, the number of Jews in Palestine was approximately 600,000.

    In 1939, the British abandoned the idea of a Jewish national home, and abandoned partition and negotiations in favour of the White Paper of 1939, which limited Jewish immigration and restricted purchase of land by Jews. Its other stated policy was to establish a system under which both Jews and Arabs were to share one government. The plan was never fully implemented because of a combination of resistance from the Jews and Arabs and Britain's pre-occupation with Europe and World War II. However, the White Paper guided British policy until the end of the term of their Mandate. As a result, many Jews fleeing to Palestine to avoid Nazi persecution and the holocaust were intercepted and returned to Europe. Two specific examples of this policy involved the ships Struma and Exodus[1]. These attempts by Jews to circumvent the blockade and flee Europe became a known as Aliya Beth.

    [edit]
    Establishment of the State
    Main article: Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel
    See also: Jewish State
    In 1947, following increasing levels of violence by militant groups together with unsuccessful efforts to reconcile the Jewish and Arab populations, the British government decided to withdraw from the Palestine Mandate. The UN General Assembly approved the 1947 UN Partition Plan dividing the territory into two states, Jewish and Arab, giving about half the land area to each state. Jerusalem was planned to be an international region administered by the UN to avoid conflict over its status.

    Immediately following the adoption of the Partition Plan by the UN General Assembly (on November 29, 1947), the Arab leadership rejected the plan and launched a guerilla war that included attacks on Jewish civilians. The Irgun Tsvai Leumi retaliated with attacks on Arabs, including Arab civilians.

    On May 14, 1948, before the expiry of the British Mandate of Palestine at midnight of May 15, 1948, the State of Israel was proclaimed.

    You are correct sir.

    However, the media calls it nation long enough and the mass mentality buy it.

    An avatar of a convicted child molestor is pretty offensive, but I can overlook it and cosider it what it is, an avatar.

    NRG, read this and tell me if you think the world would be better served by annhilating Israel in favor of the population that wandered with camels there before the 19th century:

    Some of Israel's accomplishments
    From the JAT-Action mailing list, comes this non-comprehensive list of Israel's accomplishments.:

    Here are some facts to make us proud. Israel, the 100th smallest country, with less than 1/1000th of the world's population, can lay claim to the following:
    1. The cell phone was developed in Israel by Israelis working in the Israeli branch of Motorola, which has its largest development center in Israel.

    2. Most of the Windows NT and XP operating systems were developed by Microsoft-Israel.

    3. The Pentium MMX Chip technology was designed in Israel at Intel. Both the Pentium-4 microprocessor and the Centrino processor were entirely designed, developed, and produced in Israel.

    4. The Pentium microprocessor in your computer was most likely made in Israel.

    5. Voice mail technology was developed in Israel.

    6. Both Microsoft and Cisco built their only R&D facilities outside the US in Israel.

    7. The technology for the AOL Instant Messenger ICQ was developed in 1996 by four young Israelis.

    8. According to industry officials, Israel designed the airline industry's most impenetrable flight security. US officials now look to Israel for advice on how to handle airborne security threats.

    9. Israel's $100 billion economy is larger than all of its immediate neighbors combined.

    10. Israel has the highest percentage in the world of home computers per capita.

    11. Israel has the highest ratio of university degrees to the population in the world.

    12. Israel produces more scientific papers per capita than any other nation by a large margin - 109 per 10,000 people -- as well as one of the highest per capita rates of patents filed.

    13. In proportion to its population, Israel has the largest number of startup companies in the world. In absolute terms, Israel has the second largest number of startup companies after the US (3,500 companies mostly in hi-tech).

    14. With more than 3,000 high-tech companies and startups, Israel has the highest concentration hi-tech companies in the world -- apart from the Silicon Valley, US.

    15. Israel is ranked #2 in the world for venture capital funds right behind the US.

    16. After the United States and Canada, Israel has the largest number of NASDAQ listed companies.

    17. Israel has the highest average living standards in the Middle East. The per capita income in 2000 was over $17,500, exceeding that of the UK.

    18. On a per capita basis, Israel has the largest number of biotech startups.

    19. Twenty-four percent of Israel's workforce holds university degrees -- ranking it third in the industrialized world, after the United States and Holland -- and 12% hold advanced degrees.

    20. Israel is the only liberal democracy in the Middle East.

    21. In 1984 and 1991, Israel airlifted a total of 22,000 Ethiopian Jews at risk in Ethiopia to safety in Israel.

    22. When Golda Meir was elected Prime Minister of Israel in 1969, she became the world's second elected female leader in modern times.

    23. When the US Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya, was bombed in 1998, Israeli rescue teams were on the scene within a day -- and saved three victims from the rubble.

    24. Israel has the third highest rate of entrepreneurship -- and the highest rate among women and among people over 55 - in the world.

    25. Relative to its population, Israel is the largest immigrant-absorbing nation on earth. Immigrants come in search of democracy, religious freedom, and economic opportunity.

    26. Israel was the first nation in the world to adopt the Kimberly process, an international standard that certifies diamonds as "conflict free."

    27. Israel has the world's second highest per capita rate of publishing new books.

    28. Israel is the only country in the world that entered the 21st century with a net gain in its number of trees, made more remarkable because this was achieved in an area considered mainly desert.

    29. Israel has more museums per capita than any other country.

    30. In the field of medicine, Israeli scientists developed the first fully computerized, no-radiation diagnostic instrumentation for breast cancer.

    31. An Israeli company developed a computerized system for ensuring proper administration of medications, thus removing human error from medical treatment. Every year in US hospitals 7,000 patients die from treatment mistakes.

    32. Israel's Givun Imaging developed the first ingestible video camera, so small it fits inside a pill. Used to view the small intestine from the inside, the camera helps doctors diagnose cancer and digestive disorders.

    33. Researchers in Israel developed a new device that directly helps the heart pump blood, an innovation with the potential to save lives among those with heart failure. The new device is synchronized with the heart's mechanical operations through a sophisticated system of sensors.

    34. Israel leads the world in the number of scientists and technicians in the workforce, with 145 per 10,000, as opposed to 85 in the US, over 70 in Japan, and fewer than 60 in Germany. With over 25% of its work force employed in technical professions, Israel places first in this category as well.

    35. A new acne treatment developed in Israel, the ClearLight device, produces a high-intensity, ultraviolet-light-free, narrow-band blue light that causes acne bacteria to self-destruct -- all without damaging surroundings skin or tissue.

    36. An Israeli company was the first to develop and install a large-scale solar-powered and fully functional electricity generating plant (in southern California's Mojave desert).

    37. Israel did all of the above while engaged in regular wars with an implacable enemy that seeks its destruction and an economy continuously under stress by having to spend more per capita on its own protection than any other country on earth.


    Lists like that make some people so jealous and feel so inadequate that all they can think of is ways to destroy.

    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    Dear Gas,

    You are 100% correct. High time someone reminded us all about it. As a Jew I am very sensitive to the accompishments we have made to the word, is pecially in Israel. After all, the the USAF takes adaptive ideas for fighter planes built here in the USA, where ther airforce has come up with many, many brillant adaptations.

    The chances are if you have any major surgery, from cancer to heart surgery... Thanks the jews, for inventing many of the procedures done all over the world, with many developed in Israel.

    For example, I have two different kinds of spinal implants from two different spinal surgeries. Both procedures include parts designed in Israel. My wonderul Father was given 7 extra months to live, due to chemotheraphy developed in Israel.


    With all that aside. It is horrifing that we are all killing each other over Relgion or the color of one's skin...sad, very sad. The worst part is, that relgins, groups of people or lans have hated for so long, they have no idea why.

    Take care, Jay
