    It is okay to examine our past, to look at the mistakes made by our parents, our grandparents, others etc. Whenever we look at the past we have to examine also the contexts of the events. For instance, we know that the present Pope was a member of the Hitler Youth Movement, but the context was that it was mandatory. From my reading, I can also see that many or most of the Palestinians were expelled by Israel from their villages but the context was it was necessary for this to happen in order for Jews to have a Jewish state with a Jewish majority. The Palestinians must also examine their past to see that their land was formerly the property of others and the cooperation and participation by Muslims and the Grand Mufti in the Holocaust is also taken into account. Here is the problem with the Catholics, the Jews, and the Palestinians. Each can not reconsile the past decisions of their fathers and go on. Infallibility, justice, and guilt. Focus on what needs to be done now. Bomb Iran.
