Georges you said.. “i do not know why we as Arabs should accept an out of the blue colonization of Palestine from Zionists who their only excuse is that 5000 years ago they lived their and that gives them a divine right to do so” I say: The Jews last had a country a little bit less than 2000 years ago in the land of Israel. Not the 5000 you find so dismissive. After Romans kicked most of them out (in 135 CE, I believe), they immediately started to filter back in. From then until now, Jews have continued to live in this land. While no other autonomous rule governed the land between the Jordan and the Mediterranean (between 135CE and 1948CE), many Jews, over many centuries, have considered it their home. Any framing of the current conflict that ignores the ancient and enduring presence of Jews and Jewish culture in the holy land is ignorant at best and, more likely, intentionally misleading.
