    Paul, something is wrong with your logic, as the discussion here alone shows. The fact that you, a Jew, live in New York presumably means for you that there is no difference between you and me--we are both Jews, and therefore are one people. Yet, I, a Jew living in Israel, have much more in common with other humanists, wherever they live and whether or not they are Jews, who are critical of the occupation, the Israeli government, and Zionism than with you, a Jew living in NY, who supports Israel unconditionally. While it is true that Palestine was rule by the Ottomans and then the Brits, neither colonized the country, neither drove Palestinians out. Palestinians, who have their own culture (just as do different Asian cultures, even though they are all Asians, and just as do South American countries, even though the people all be South Americans, etc etc etc)lived here and carried on their own lives. By the way, Jews lived here from Roman times in peace with Palestinians until Zionism turned the apple cart over.
