    I am an Arab and I am a Muslim, BUT, I am not buying the crap that our media and governments put out. Israel is absolutely occupying land that is not theirs and since the second intifada has seriously been opressing "our people", BUT as is typical with "our people" and our governments, we play as if we were still in the 14th century. Israel pulls out of the Gaza and we begin killing our own! Let's face it, our societies, for the most part are backward and pathetic. If we were to let Israel be part of "our" world, they could help lead our region into the 21st century, BUT the arab leaders need little Israel to devert attention from our own issues. Thank Alah that we have oil or nobody on this planet would give a crap about us. Wake up! Take responsibility and make a difference! Lastly, this military talk is rubish and again you have to wake up. Israel has defeated us so many times I forget now the number. PEACE is ALL of our answer!
