    I love KM's version of history. "Jews only lived in Palestine for 150 years but Muslims lived there and ruled 1400 years nonstop". In these days of free speech and wild opinion making, anything can be anyone's truth; even when it's a lie. The Jews have been in their land, referred to as Israel and Judah, for at least one millenium longer than the creation of Islam. Palestine, as you well know, is the name the Romans gave to Judea, the Jewish land they had conquered. Well, KM,let's look at conquest: Guess the Roman conquest of Judea was good cuz you got the name "Palestine" from it and, guess the conquest by the Saracens was good because you got your 1400 years our of that. Guess the British conquest of the Turks who owned Palestine for quite a few of those 1400 years wasn't so good because the Christians were back. But the conquest by the original owners, the Jews in 1948 over armies many times their size, that can't be part of your so-called history. That conquest's not allowed. Huh?
