1. I work with a Palestinian. Nice guy, but totally and completely in denial
Edited on Sat Dec-31-05 04:00 PM by Poppyseedman
about the realities in Israel. Oops, I mean Palestinian territories. Israel doesn't exist according to him.

We have had several civil conversations about what is happening over there. He thinks the Jews simply will eventually be forced to leave and give up the "occupation"

When I ask him who will force them out and to where should they go. He says the "sea" where they belong. He thinks if America stopped butting in, Israel will cave in to the pressure and give up.

He doesn't understand Israel will eventually lose patience and simply wall them into Gaza until they decide to live in harmony and learn to co-exist
