    I am always bewildered when I read the Talkback responses and see someone yet again repeating the completely laughable argument of "G-d gave us this land". This is complete nonsense and should be treated as such. If you want to be taken seriously, speak like an adult, not a mystified child. No one cares about your fairy tales. No one cares about what your imaginary friend supposedly promised YOU thousands of years ago. The FACTS are that a nascent Israel forced almost One Million Palestinians out of their lawful residences in 48-49, and Millions of them have been homeless ever since, regardless of their very Legal rights to their stolen property. Title Deeds and Property Deeds hold FAR more sway than your compendium of desert mythology. Argue from sanity, or else we'll keep dismissing you. WE are the generation that's allowing the Occupation to continue. Our ancestors did the WRONG thing, and we can't change their actions, but we CAN change ours. Please grow up!!!

    from the article: Declare Independence. Free Israel. End the Occupation.
