    Jose, just because Mexico gave up on Texas, California, etc does not mean the Palestinians have to follow a similar suit. Jose, one thing you're forgetting is that much of the territory (cities or states) the U.S. conquered from Mexico still retains their names. It's not like Palestine where over 400 Arab named villages were changed to Hebrew over night. Before you go on mentioning the Mufti and unproved stories of him helping the Nazis, why don't you mention Israeli prime ministers who collaborated with Hitler like Shamir, etc? Yeah, exactly. Try being more balanced. Second off, your version of history is untrue, when in fact ISRAELI HISTORIANS and many of them i.e. Benny Morris have proven that Israeli military and terrorist forces were the major reason the Palestinians were either killed, exiled, or expelled. The Palestinians were no match for the Zionist forces when previous to the 40's the Palestinians were decimated by the British during the Arab revolt. Many of the Palestinian rebels were exiled, killed, and disarmed. So chill out with the rhetoric and lies. Some people won't just give up and allow themselves to be colonized. The Palestinians don't want to wind up being like Mexicans people who lost territory and now are pushing to go past the border to the U.S. for work. This is the current situation for Palestinians as they seek work in Israel, but they'd rather work in their own independent state once established. In the end, the colonized finally receive their justice. It happened with the American revolution, South Africans, and I promise you, the resolve of the Palestinians will give them their independence in their homeland. Still no one has an answer to a question I often pose. Why is it the Palestinians look way more semetic than most Israelis? I'm wondering if maybe I can convert to Judaism and get a free ride to property in Israel and house my Palestinian friends :) PEACE
