How can you teach history when you know absolutely nothing about the subject? Jews were not there first!! When the Israelites crossed from Jordan into Canaan, also known as Palestine, the land was inhabited by (among others) the semite tribes, Amorites, Hittites and Jebusites. The Jebusites had already built Jerusalem and they inhabited the city for 100 more years. Many noted scholars and historians have determined that the Jebusites are the forebears of the Palestinians. The NYU School of Medicine and the Academy of Science discovered that ME Jewish men have a common genetic signature with Lebanese men, Syrian men and Palestinians, and with no other non-Jews in the world. Do you wish to try to convince us that American settler/Indian wars justify the 42-year Israeli occupation and oppression of Palestine? Are you nuts? There was no UN, no 4th Geneva Convention, and no violation of international laws during US Indian wars. There are now, and Israel is in violation of them all.
