    I know your textbooks teach it. I know you assure each other with it. I know your political leaders trot it out when they need you to get in line. But this land has never, not ever been Palestinian land. I read these comments over and over, and better men than I have laid out very plainly over and over again what reality is. And yet I know reality is becoming more and more a foreign concept for many, and the "what I say must be true" mentality is currently prevailing, it regardless does not change reality, which is this - and I only repeat it because those of you who don't get it never seem to listen: Israels land has never belonged to the Palsetinians. There has NEVER been a Palestinian state. Ever. Never ever. Can you just finally understand that so the rest of us can stop shaking our heads in disgust at your ignorance?! Please - I am trying to salvage some bit of credibility for humanity here. There has never, ever been a Palestuinian state. Ever. In fact - the place that was set aside for a Palestinian state (because it never existed) is called Jordan today. I suggest you look into it. Not with your textbooks of course because they will tell you Israel stole your Palestinian state - and we have already been over that.
