    you spoiled children and "treating Pals like human beings.." Spoiled children, no other people have gone through all that we have over 2 millenia or even the past 60 years. And how have we responded? We haven't dissapeared as so many hoped or wallowed in our own misery. In stead, when finally freed from the shakles of anti-semitism we made contributions to mankind far beyond our numbers (just look at the numbers of Jewish nobel prize winners and leaders in culture, science and business). From the date of its re-birth, the modern State of Israel simultaneously repulsed the invasions by 5 Arab armies plus the forces of Palestiinian arabs, absorbed hundreds of thousands of penniless holocuast survivors and just a few years later hundreds of thousands more Jewish refugees from Arab and Muslim countries who'd had almost all of their property stolen by their native countries. We then had to deal with terrorism, repreated attempts to annihilate us and yet, desptie all that, Israel has flurished. We have a strong economy, vibrant democracy and exciting cultural scene. All this in a mere 60 years.
