    Folks, I have been following these discussions on Arabs, Jews and Palestinians for many many years and one thing never became clear to me, why is everyone mixing up nationalities with religions and why is it so detrimental for the people on the street? We have Egyptians, Israelis, Iraqi's Jordanians, Lebanese, Syrians, etc. who all believe in their own religions. In all discussions I always have to read about Jews against Arabs which is not true because many Arabs are Jews and most Jews in Israel actually are Arabs from, for example, Iraq, Jordan, Morocco, Syria, Yemen, and quite a number Persians from Iran. So what on earth is the issue here, can't you just live together or side- by-side with your brothers/sisters and/or cousins? It really is pathetic to see how you keep on going making life misrable for eachother while it can be so much better. All humans are created equal. Behave like it and all will live peacefully together. Living a life like this and there will be no room for dissatisfaction leading to extremist thoughts. Dear politicians, don't be selfish anymore, think of what the huge majority of people on this globe, including Israel and Palestine want. Get your act together and think of all concerned and not only, selfishly of your own place in history.
