I'm not claiming a moral highground, nor do I believe that Arabs are better than Jews, nor do I classify the two groups as Arab and Jew. If anything I am anti all religions, and believe in the individual humanity of the person. From a legal standpoint (being a lawyer) I can confidently say there is no legal justification for a substantial majority of Israel's actions or arguments or justifications where the Palestinians are concerned, I'm not gonna recite the specific laws that back up my argument, but you can no doubt google it or youtube it and the information is available. I'm sorry that the 'Jews' were persecuted, but frankly, if Hitler got his way, we would have been next. And the Jews are not the only people to have been persecuted in modern world history. The Russians were murdered en masse, the Armenians, the Circassians, numerous African tribes were wiped out, and the list goes on... And the Palestinians were persecuted. Unfortunately human nature has an evil streak...
