« Netanyahu's "1938" Speech | Main | The Liberal Hawk Argument »

November 17, 2006



I wonder what Colter's response would have been if the Law Students had been native to Palestine?


Sadly, you missed the whole point.
The Jews inhabit the same land for 3,500 years. Long - several thousand years long - before there was a Palestine.
That is not to ignore present day realities. But history is history.
And slandering a champion of justice is beyond the pale.


Isn't it time you gave up the old red herring of "we were there first"? The fact is, Palestinians and Jews share the same blood and history. It is only religion that defines you.

"The genetic profile of Palestinians has, for the first time, been studied by using human leukocyteantigen (HLA) gene variability and haplotypes. The com-parison with other Mediterranean populations by using neighbor-joining dendrograms and correspondence analyses reveal that Palestinians are genetically very close to Jews and other Middle East populations, including Turks(Anatolians), Lebanese, Egyptians, Armenians andIranians. Archaeologic and genetic data support that both Jews and Palestinians came from the ancient Canaanites,who extensively mixed with Egyptians, Mesopotamian and Anatolian peoples in ancient times. Thus, Palestinian-Jewish rivalry is based in cultural and religious, but not ingenetic, differences."

Even if your claims were true, it would not excuse the ethnic cleansing of people who have occupied the area for 700 years. For goodness' sake stop trying to bury your heads in the sand. Historians such as Pappe and Benny Morris have exploded the myths that you cling to and the internet is now bringing the facts out into the open. I have supported Israel for most of my life. I can do so no longer. Compromise is now imperative if Israel is not to become isolated. Killing and terrorising Palestinians has not worked. They are not going to go away. It is time to deal.

One multi-cultural State is the only viable solution.
