    Yes, bm, the Jewish people and the Old Testament are inseparable, but that was 2000 years ago, and they should have come flocking back in hordes when the Romans, the ones who expelled them, themselves lost Palestine. The Arab Muslims were not averse to having Jewish and Christians live in their lands. They were certainly more tolerant than the fanatical Christians as a whole. So who is the hypocrite? And as for the indigenous peoples of the Americas, I deplore what happened to them and understand personally their situation. When I first came here, to the US, for we had no place to go as survivors of WWII, the Soviets would have finished off what was left of both my mother's and father's family, and we were never able to get any compensation, I remember seeing the Westerns so popular in the 50's. Well, I always identified with the "Indians," because they did not speak English well, looked strange (I had stones thrown at me by fellow classmates because of my poor clothing and my funny accent) and were always getting killed by the white people. So much for what "I" and "my people" did to them. Speak to the daughters of the Mayflower and other descendants of British, German, French, Hispanic, Portuguese stock. I have the right to feel a great sorrow for the Arabs who were hoodwinked of ahving their own state by the Brits, Biblical scriptures aside, for one thing is certain in today's world--show the documents or you get bubkees.

For French teen studying in Israel, it's all about being a Jew among Jews

Arrivals / Departures: Anti-Semitism in France is certainly not the reason why this teen chose to come to Israel; an Israeli whose relatives perished in the Holocaust finds living in Berlin 'perfectly fine.'
