    As to answer your question about 'are these the same people who came from Iraq...' That is impossible to say in any honesty, and frankly not very relevant. We can only say that Jews descended with high certainty from the Middle East, and lived in antiquity in what is today Israel & The Palestinian Territories before their population was decimated and dispersed by the Romans following failed revolts 2000 years ago. The fact that such a people exists who still has a trauma from this ancient 'Naqba' in their collective memory, and longing for their ancient homeland, is indeed without historical parallel and many people would consider it ridiculous, but this doesn't make it less legitimate. What I'm saying does in not way undermine Palestinian aspirations for the land, since the claims are completely legitimate (after all, it is or was their home too). In fact I believe that both peoples only need to look inside themselves in order to understand the other, in some ways we are mirror images
