    Are you working for the International Solidarity Movement? Do you speak Arabic? "I am an American who has been living in Bethlehem for the past month and I would like to clear something up about Jews in Palestine. Contrary to what Proud zionist says, the reason there are very few Jews in Palestine (what was it, 1%) has little to do with any deep-seated hatred of Jews." What are you talking about? These people started attacking Jews in the early 1900s, long before any "occupation." There was a massacre of Jews in Hebron in the 20s. The Palestinian LIBERATION movement was founded in '64, three years before the "occupation." The Palestinians attacked Jews on Yom Kippur and started a war. The PA just apologized to Belgium for using Belgium's money to teach the notoriously anti-Semitic "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion" in PA schools. The Palestinians just concluded a four year terror war after rejecting peace at Camp David and not counter-offering. "I`ve traveled all through the West Bank and talked to Palestinian Christians and Muslims, liberal and conservative, non-violent and militant. None of them hate Jews or think that Israel has no right to exist" At least that's what they tell gullible Americans in English. "(admittedly I can`t speak for Hamas, but that is a different story and, despite their popularity in the polls,..." You don't need to speak for them. Their terror attack yesterday spoke volumes. "they would welcome peace and a diverse, vibrant society of Muslims, Christians and Jews." They have been brainwashed since infancy by a closed press and a ridiculous school system to believe Jews are the devil. Not to mention the fact that Islamic extremism is a worrying phenomenon around the globe. Why should "Palestine" be different? I'm sure you've got a good heart, but this org. you are working for is feeding you bologna along with their hummous.
