22. you speak as though
Edited on Fri Mar-30-07 06:19 PM by Shaktimaan
violence and anti-semitism/zionism amongst Palestinians is restricted to a tiny percentage of the population. Or that a reasonable parallel can be drawn between violent actions from indigenous Australians and those from Palestinians. (Are indiginous Australians organized into large factions committed to driving non-native Aussies off the continent? Have they repeatedly attacked non-natives without end since their arrival? Are they teaching their children that you use their blood to bake bread?)

If it is only a few who are violently resisting Israel, then why have I never seen Palestine's version of Peace Now or B'tselem? I have never seen any kind of voice preaching moderation eminate from the Palestinian camp. I DID notice that some 60% of Palestinians voted for Hamas in the last election though. I also noticed how popular stone throwing (with slingshots of course) is among Palestinian youth. One could say it's become an ingrained part of popular Palestinian culture.

You have to admit, there is not much diversity to be seen in the Palestinian camp regarding violence against Israel. If not everyone participates, practically no one hinders it either, in word or deed.
