    You write: '...Zionist from NewYork that squats on land stolen from the Palestinians.' Maybe it is the other way around? First, just in order to understand who was here first, look at a history longer than 3,000 years of the Jewish People, here: http://www.mfa.gov.il/MFA/Facts+About+Israel/Israel+in+Maps/Israel+in+Maps.htm The name 'Palestine' was first invented by the Romans in 135AD, as an insult to the Jews after a failed rebelion against them. The Romans also changed the name of Jerusalem to 'Ilia Capitolina'. All this happened some 500 years even before the birth of Islam somewhere in the Arabian desert, and has nothing to do with the Arabs who today call themselves 'Palestinians'. The Arab conquest, that spread all over North Africa and reached Spain, had some remenants also in The Land of Israel, but not much. Prior to the 20th century, I can't recall any evidence of people who define themselves as 'Palestinians'. All the Jews did in the 20th century, is to excersice their right of return. The Jews were prepared to compromise with people who lived there. Unfortunately, the Palestinians were not ready to compromise as well, and tried to throw us to the sea.
