    Cipora, surely you must know that Hamas was funded by the Israeli government in the 1980s as a counterweight to the secular PLO. Surely you know that before the occupation the Palestinians were among the most secular in the Arab world. Sadly, too many Palestinians saw that secularism got them nowhere in their fight to end the occupation. David, it is understandable that the Palestinians are not happy with a Jewish state. The formation of the Jewish state meant the loss of a their homeland and the loss of their homes and lands. The fact that European powers decided that the land should be divided does not get away from the fact that the Palestinians were expected to give up a part of the land which the British had also duplicitly promised them. They are not happy with the fact that Jews from any part of the world can "return" to a place where they may never have set foot while a Palestinian. born in Safad or elsewhere, is barred from returning. Can you blame them for being upset?
