    The absurdity of the whole thread here is that the state of Israel and "the Jews" (generalization) are constantly linked to Palestinians. If Israels policies would be so genocidal as some often try to depict birth rates among Palestinians wouldn't be that enormous, and if Israel were to be a state practicing ethnic cleansing why does it have about 25% Muslims, Christians, Druzes, Samaritans ... (of which some extremely Zionistic) on its teritory? If one discusses China, Tibet is hardly ever mentioned. When talking about Iran we forget about Zoroasters and other minorities and if Sudan is discussed (an Arab nation btw), Darfour is professionally ignored. Yet when it comes to Israel and "the Jews" we do focus upon Palestinians (regardless of internal opposition or the actions of Palestine leaders themselves). Noone questions the right to exist of Belgium, although it's genesis was caried by far less people than Israel and is more the result of an historical accident.
