Perhaps it was unnecessary, but I'm glad to see that most of you didn't contest the rest of my comments. Eric, Palestinians are not descendants of Jews. Yes, many humans share some genetic similarities, and that's the extent of the relationship. bbl, I was making a point that this is an article that anti-Semites are loathe to touch, because it's hard for them to counter. In my opinion, the Palestinians are more than welcome to their own state in parts of the Land of Israel, but they really are their own worst enemy, aren't they?
