Funny and in some cases on point, but you cannot escape the 'persecution complex which continues to blind Jews to their own failings. "Everyone hates us!" "Everyone is picking on us because we are special!" What you article fails to address is under what pretext, European and American Jews confiscate Arab lands and occupy others? Is it because you are special? Is it because others (European Christians) have persecuted you? Please explain? If Jews had a right to colonize Palestine in the early 20th Century - when they were only 3% of the indigenous population - because Jews had lived there 2000 years before, how do you deny Palestinians the right to return to a land where they were the other 97%? Let's not let logic intrude into our self-indulgent back patting here. The fact is that if Jews had merely wanted to live among the Arabs there would have been no problem. They did so as minorities for centuries. The Moors gave shelter to the Jews when both were booted across the Straights of Gibraltar by the Spanish Inquisition. Jew thrived in Syria and Iraq before the advent of Zionism. Helen Thomas was wrong to say that Jews have no place in Palestine. They do and always have. However, so do the Palestinians. Maybe that is where the name came from.
