    "1) I am for a democratic, secular state where all people under jewish domination today from dead sea to med sea are given equal rights and protections and opportunities." - Then my question is how you suppose to maintain "jewish domination" with equal rights for all? As far as I know you want to transfer 5 million Arabs to Israel. And Arabs have twice as much birth rate than Jews. "2) I posted a message in an earlier discussion where a racist study by University of Chicago establihes an almost identical genetic patterns between ashkanazi jews and palestians." - Jews and Arabs belong to the same semitic family and descent from the same region. As you know Arabian peninsula is very close to Israel. So it is nothing that surprising me. Indeed we have the same ansestors. Then yours lived in Arabia and mine in Israel. I don't live in the same house with my sister even if we have the same parents. "3) fi israel is dear to jews, how come there are more jews today outside of israel than living in israel? your nukes and f16s can`t protect them? fact is jews throughout history, as in today, have preferred to live in places where they had felt at home." - Yes, and I am one of them. And I am not planning to live in Israel but for me it is very important that "nukes and f16s" are under control of the people who share the same fate with people like me in other countries if it comes to something like Holocaust and that ship with Jewish refugees will be not turned down from Haifa port. "anytime you give your selvs rights that you deny to others" - Simply not true. We don't claim "right of return" to the desendants of refugees from Arab countries. Just the opposite we claim that you, Arabs should treat your refugees just like we treated ours. "and ask yourself: is there another decent western democracy that treats people who have a different religion like you do? NO." - I asked myself and found that there is no "decent western democracy" that have neighbors trying to destroy those democracies but I found historical references how those democracies behaved during the war time when they were threatened by destruction and found that they behaved much worse.
