There is no surprise. The Arabs who call themselves Palestinians have official policies (both Fatah and Hamas) that are based on mass violence against Israel. Tens of thousands of Israelis hold rallies chanting for peace. Palestinians have never held similar peace rallies, but instead whenever you have thousands of Palestinians in a rally, that chant is "With fire and blood...". Of course there is violence. That is the Palestinian way. It is their culture. It is what they brought to the world with their policies and history of terrorism, hijackings, bombings, shootings, kidnappings, knifings and stonings. This is what "Palestine" will contribute to the UN - the legitimization of war crimes as a nation building tool, and it will be the only way they will be able to sustain "Palestine".
