    Israel's aggression....Just compare the intentions of the two national movements via two documents: Israel's Declaration of Establishment, and the Palestinian National Charter. Few examples for you: 1.a) From the Declaration of Establishment of the State of Israel: On the 29th November, 1947, the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution calling for the establishment of a Jewish State in Eretz-Israel; the General Assembly required the inhabitants of Eretz-Israel to take such steps as were necessary on their part for the implementation of that resolution. 1.b) From the Palestinian National Charter: Article 19: The partition of Palestine in 1947 and the establishment of the state of Israel are entirely illegal, regardless of the passage of time? 2.a) From the Declaration of Establishment of the State of Israel: WE APPEAL - in the very midst of the onslaught launched against us now for months - to the Arab inhabitants of the State of Israel to preserve peace and participate in the up building of the State on the basis of full and equal citizenship and due representation in all its provisional and permanent institutions. 2.b) From the Palestinian National Charter: Article 15: The liberation of Palestine, from an Arab viewpoint, is a national (qawmi) duty and it attempts to repel the Zionist and imperialist aggression against the Arab homeland, and aims at the elimination of Zionism in Palestine. 3.a) From the Declaration of Establishment of the State of Israel: WE EXTEND our hand to all neighboring states and their peoples in an offer of peace and good neighborliness, and appeal to them to establish bonds of cooperation and mutual help with the sovereign Jewish people settled in its own land. The State of Israel is prepared to do its share in a common effort for the advancement of the entire Middle East. From the Palestinian National Charter: 3.b) Article 21: The Arab Palestinian people, expressing themselves by the armed Palestinian revolution, reject all solutions which are substitutes for the total liberation of Palestine and reject all proposals aiming at the liquidation of the Palestinian problem, or its internationalization. Now, who is the aggressor? - Who wants to conquer who? - Who wants whom eliminated? That's why the Palestinians still have organizations like Hamas and Islamic Jihad, that run an organised campeign to mass murder as many innocent individuals only because they happen to be Israelis.
