    As much as I am against the messianic settlers, I have to point out that most of the Arabs living today west of the Jordan, as well as the so-called "refugees" (how can one be a refugee qfter 63 years? How can their grandchildrenbe considered refugees? Ask the UN) are the descendants of those who immigrated here because of Zionism. Yes, Zionsim. Contemporay 19th century accounts, such as that of Mark Twain, tattest to the emptiness of the Land of Israel at the time. Once Zionism began, starting already in the 1880s, even before Theodor Herzl, the economic opportunities opened up by the reconstruction of the land by Jewish settlersw attracted Arabs from Syria, Lebanon, Transjordan, Egypt and Israel. Thst's why so many Arabs have such surnames as Halabi (from Aleppo in Syria), Masri (from Mizrayim - Egypt), Tarabulsi (from Tripoli in LOebanon).

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
