    More ignorant and illogical drivel from you unfortunately. Please tell me what the statute of limitations is on land rights. To you "1700 years" is obviously way too long, while all over the world there are colonial powers (the Americas, etc.) who stole their land only hundreds of years or less. Do you advocate them returning "their" land to their rightful owners? These are crimes much, much vaster than any in Israel/Palestine and where the perpetrators had absolutely no claim at all (except right of conquest). And if the Israelis hold out a bit longer (50 years, a hundred, whatever your expiration date is) will you counsel the Palestinians to then be quiet? Ethnic cleansing? Certainly not as bad as the genocide of hundreds of millions of natives in the Americas, and then what about the ethnic cleansing of millions of Hindus in Kashmir, Pakistan, and elsewhere? Again, orders of magnitude greater than anything you rant against. Which makes your hypocrisy that much greater...
