congrats to Palestine (Page 2)
Outbackjack: This is where deletion of comments gets us.
Still it does make a change from Davidk's verbal diarrhea.
They never were removed.
"...The European Union’s top court has ruled that the Palestinian Islamist movement, Hamas, should remain on the EU terrorism blacklist."
"...Foreign Terrorist Organizations..."
They are one of the 65+ terrorist organizations.
FYI...Hamas is funded by Iran's Revolutionary Guard.
That's a complex issue. There are approximately 30,000 Arabs alive that were there in 1948.
The issue becomes that if 'right of return' adding the extended family members of the original 30,000 and that is accepted by Israel, Israel will cease to exist as a Jewish State.
It was created as a Jewish state and I believe that it will remain as a Jewish state. There are more than 25 Islamic countries in the world and only 1 Jewish country...Israel with 5 million Jews. 20% of Israels population are Arabs. Consider as fact that 1/3 of the worlds Jews live in Israel.

poetry123: Except that Israel did allow a right of return to tens of thousands of arabs after the war of independence and many are still allowed to return today. In 2000, 150,000 refugees were admitted as part of the pre-conditions to peace. In return, Israel was hit with terror attacks. The right of return has already happened, regardless of whether or not the world wants to acknowledge it.
Did a little research on this...very interesting....
"...The Palestinian Refugees: History & Overview"
poetry123: Interesting read david. It is confusing as to why there are still Palestinians living in refugee camps in Gaze (540,515) and the West Bank (216,403) since those areas are considered Palestine- ruled by Hamas and the PA. The Palestinians living in Israel certainly don't live in refugee camps. Its not like the PA or Hamas don't receive enough funding from the US, Europe, the UN, and arab nations to provide more humane housing for their people.
poetry123: Yes I have- it calls for the destruction of Israel and the establishment of a Palestinian state in her place...not alongside.
Yes it does with the interpretation....the murder of all the Jews of Israel. That is called Genocide.
You and I know that not one Jew would leave Israel if under attack. Every eligible Israeli picks up their gun, and heads to the front (as well as report to barracks) .
It's all about survival of the Jewish State.
Every Israeli upon graduating from high school, automatically is enlisted into the Israeli Defense Forces active for two years and inactive to be called up until the approximate age of 45.
The threat of the possibility that Israel has thermonuclear weapons has been debated on many levels since 1973. Israel signed peace deals with Egypt and Jordan which are still in existence today.
Israel is surrounded by 300,000,000 Arabs.
Perhaps someone might tell me how 300 million will not support the Palestinians against 5 million Jews? How is that possible?
Yah think that might be due to the possibility that Israel with it's 5 million inhabitants ranging from newborns to retired and elderly folks, does possibly have nukes targeted at every Islamic Nations Capital city?
poetry123: I think even the arab nations are getting tired of pouring money into the corrupt rulers of Hamas and the PA. All that money and nothing to show for it. If they wanted a state, they would have one. They already have the land in Judea and Samaria and Gaza. They have received more than enough money to sustain themselves- yet instead of spending it on the economy or creating jobs, the corrupt rulers line their own pockets and pay the families of terrorists to kill jews. They even refuse to pay their water bill- causing humanitarian Israel to step in and provide water to the people for free. In the US you get your water shut off for non-payment.
