    i am direct decedent of holocaust survivors (what few of my family did survive); i do not have to read any censored so-called "history books"; i have 1st hand knowledge from my mother who made sure that we will never forget! in eastern europe, after the holocaust, my families lost EVERYTHING! their homes, farms, lands, everything.... then were only given 24hr notice to be expelled from their homes, lands, everything! it was in the middle of the winter which was like siberia in that part of the world. the only had a wooden oxcart and their horse shimmel. they lost everything except what they could carry on their backs. it was horrible. many people, horses, froze to death. by some miracle some of my family made it in this mass exodus. please do not forget thousands of years of our history, let alone post WWII history. have we not had enough? we now have our homeland back again after thousands of years. just leave us alone! let us have our own homeland. what is the problem? could someone please explain to me? i am sick of other countries trying to dictate to our country of israel what our policy should be. we are not children. we can make our own decisions. i am sure we can decide this for ourselves! stop using israel as a "pawn" in some larger international political scheme. we have the absolute right to make our own decisions for ourselves! cut me a break!
