And how did your country treat the Palestinian Arabs when it occupied Palestine? Well, here is how one Palestinian scholar describes what the British did during the Palestinian Revolt of 1936-1939. "Hundreds of homes were blown up (perhaps as many as two thousand), crops were destroyed, and over one hundred rebels were summarily executed simply for possession of firearms, or even ammunition. Curfews, administrative detention, internal exile, and particularly cruel means were employed, such as tying villagers to the front of locomotive engines to prevent rebels from blowing up trains." (Khalidi, Iron Cage, Beacon Press, 2007, p. 107). Oh, I know, Britain's no longer there; it's in Iraq, doing the same kind of thing, as another Palestinian author points out. (Chehab, Inside the Resistance, Nation Books, Ch. 5). Of course you'll try to change the subject in some way, away from Britain, as always, which created half the problems in the first place.
