. July 16, 2006 SouthAmerica: Reply to Dddooo It is obvious to me based on your replies that we canât have a civil discussion about this subject â that is why I ignore most of the time this subject and have turned off any interest that I had about it a long time ago. You are obviously a Jew who probably is living in Israel â you take everything personally maybe because you are too close to that mess. I am an impartial observer and I have friends who are Jewish and also Moslem and I see things looking from the outside and I see the way both groups react to each other. A lot of things that I wrote on prior postings must have hit a soft spot judging by your reactions. Instead of having a civil discussion about historic facts â even when I said that I had made a typo about a figure and recognized there was an error â you came back and used that information to say that I was lying. (or you are not too bright or your job is to be online to spread misinformation regarding Israel.) You canât re-write history to justify your position â in this case about the creation of the State of Israel. It is a fact that in 1920, when the British started their mandate in Palestine that the Palestine population was only 500,000 people including 55,000 Jews. Twenty-seven years later the total population of Palestine had increased to 1,900,000 people including 600,000 Jews. It is obvious to me that in 1920 the Arab population represented 89 percent of total population (445,000 people) and the Jewish population represented 11 percent of the total population (55,000 people) â Palestine had been populated mainly by the Moslems for hundreds of years and there is no doubt that that area had been Moslem country for a long time. That is a fact!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Because the Jews moved to that area of the world during a period of 27 years because they were running from trouble in other areas of the world â that does not give them the right to take the land of other people who had been living there for centuries. On your âreal intelligent commentsâ you want to imply that the land in Palestine never belonged to anyone before of the British occupation. (real bright logic!!!!) It does not matter today, if Israel had the right to create a new Jewish state on Palestine land in 1947. Today, Israel has a very powerful argument on its favor to settle that discussion â it is called a nuclear arsenal with nuclear bombs and also very powerful hydrogen bombs. When a country is armed with Nukes nobody will evict the population of that country â unless some fool goes for total annihilation â but in that case there are no winners â only losers. What happened in 1947 with the blessings of the British or the United Nations it does not matter today since Israel is armed with a powerful nuclear arsenal. As I mentioned before many times, I have no idea how to resolve the current problems between Israel and the Arab world â they have to work things out among themselves and nobody else will be able to resolve the problems for them. I see the way DDDooo reacts on this message board when he does not agree with what someone wrote about this subject â The reality is: It must be really crazy and impossible for anyone to be a negotiator among all these people. This subject it is like a âcatch-22â â it does not matter what you say you will be in trouble. .
